HDD Pricing Tags: Western Digital Hard Drives Storage Last response: November 13, 2011 6:53 AM in Storage Share Sashmo99 November 12, 2011 4:54:59 PM Hello Everyone, I just popped on NewEgg to scroll through my wishlist. Haven't check it in a couple months. Is it me or did HDD prices skyorcket like 3x? Why is a WD 500GB 7200RPM HDD $189 all of a sudden. Weren't they going for around $50 a few months ago? Am I going crazy or did something happen? Thanks!
