40GB to 250GB HDD shortage looming?

Posted on Friday, August 24 2007 @ 03:15:29 CEST by


Sources close to hard drive makers believe a shortage of hard drives with a capacity of 250GB and less is coming up in the next couple of weeks, causing average selling prices to go up:
. It simply doesn’t make any sense to make these as they will occupy a lot of factory capacity and will yield small margins.

It is interesting to learn that production cost of a 80 GB hard drive and 250 GB hard drive is the same as 250GB because it can be done with a single platter and so can the 80GB drive. The manufacturer makes a lot less on 80 GB than it makes on 250GB.

If you want these smaller drives better get one soon as there might be a big shortage when we come in high selling season.
