Because production has been hampered by the floods in taiwan bangkok and the surrounding areas, that is where they manufacture the drives, so now they are becoming scarce and means prices are going up.

The affected companies may not fully recover until 2012, said the IT site. Seagate CEO Stephen Luczo agreed, telling Bloomberg, “This is going to take a lot longer than people are assuming, until the end of 2012 at least. And by then, demand will have gone up.”


HDD makers slash shipment figures, though prices could drop soon
