40 to 250 GB HDD shortage are expected

Written by Fuad Abazovic

No margins


Our informative sources have confirmed that you can expect the shortages of smaller hard drives and that the average selling prices of these will go up. It simply doesn’t make any sense to make these as they will occupy a lot of factory capacity and will yeild small marigins.

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.
