I'm looking to get a 2x1TB setup for the new box I'm building. Right now I'm looking at the prices on Newegg, and prior to discounts, $85--90 seems to be the lowest price range. While the price isn't _too_ big of a problem, if prices are going to drop soon (i.e., in the next month or two), I'm willing to wait. Does anyone know what kinds of changes occur in prices during this time of the year?
LOL, I was going to say these drives are around $100, how much cheaper do you want them? If your walking into your local B&M or compubytes don't buy them there. (my local compubytes is selling the 1TB drives for $220. Even my local staples sells an external 1TB for $170.) $100 for 1TB isn't cheap enough?
Trust me, I'm as broke as they get. While I would love to have nicer stuff, I have to many bills to be able to afford them. I do however do my best to save up $$$, and buy "new" stuff for my setups. (I say "new" because I buy a lot of stuff off of forums.) I would love to buy everything I need for $10, but I understand that some things can't be sold for that little. My 320GB is dying on me, I'll get the biggest drive I can for ~$75. If that means I buy a 500GB for $50 because I can't spring the $90 for the 1TB, then so be it. Buy the time I have to upgrade a harddrive again, I'll be able to get the 1TB for $60.
