Spring Showers bring HDD Price Relief

According to Digitimes, it looks like we’ll finally be getting some hard drive (HDD) price relief in the next few months. While some manufacturers claim supply will still trail demand until at least the 3rd quarter, factory output will drop prices in April by at least 10%. That’s good news for anyone looking to build a computer in the next few weeks (although we still argue that a solid state drive [SSD] is the best performance upgrade money can buy).

The sources warn that prices are unlikely to reach pre-2011 flooding levels (where we saw 2TB drives going for $60), but relief should begin flowing out to consumers as OEMs like Dell and HP are able to replenish their supplies.

With the price drops coming up (and SSDs being cheaper than ever), there has never been a better time to upgrade your computer. Email Rocket Custom Computers today at [email protected] in order to see what we can do for you!
