    What are you looking for 2.5" or 3.5", and I assume you want Sata?

    Prices went up by between 10% and 60% due to the flooding in Thailand , Japan ect

    There were even fears that there would not be enough drives available to meet demand ... Last i checked there was a shortfall of around 10 to 20 million units. The situation is not expected to improve until the back end of this year.

    So i would not expect to find to many really good deals on drives for a while yet.
