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! More about : hdd pricing SR-71 Blackbird a c 190 G Storage November 12, 2011 4:56:31 PM http://www.tomshardware.com/news/hdd-thailand-flood-sup...
