While some media outlets, like Maximum PC, are reporting that there could be a drive shortage in the second half of 2011 due to the affects of the earthquake in Japan, current drive prices are stable for the most part. Unfortunately, there will always be sources that see an opportunity to make more money by raising prices to resellers or the resellers themselves raising prices on existing inventory.
Even though we have observed some drive supply crunches, we fortunately have the personnel and procedures in place to keep our drive supply high…and prices low. These new lower prices are a great example of how OWC always has your best interests in mind.
