Water & Hard drives... not a good combination !
I'm more than sure that they have enough supply to get through world demand for the holidays as most of those products already shipped... they just have to keep up enough production maintain the warranty/rma support for QC problems & defective drives.
BTW, this is what they get when they put ALL their manufacturing eggs in the lowest labor cost markets. What ever happened to manufacturing plants in Ireland/UK?!? Have they downsized or closed those too? These plants were supposedly making the drive platters.
