New post flood milestone… 4tb drives back to $199 after promo code:

EMCJJHA56

Still waiting for the second ‘shoe’ to drop on blu ray drives & media…

That is the best deal we’ve seen in 2 months, and for an external AND USB 3, too. Good until December 5th.

Of course, I won’t bring up compatibility issues with drivers larger than 2Tb…

Still no movement on the wholesale side. This means distributors are happy to pay tax on all shelf-stock as opposed to moving it to other sellers. And sellers are happy enough with their current inventory levels and will pay end-of-year taxes on that.

This sounds like they’re all very happy with the current trend in hardware sales. Gag.

Note, with the Touro series of Hitachi external drives, the Pro versions have longer warranties than the regular ones. It’s usually 1-year vs. 3-years.

Also, the Pro models sometimes have 7200rpm drives instead of 5400rpm.
