Now Barracuda bitten by Thai disk drought disaster

Killer floods push up prices

Next gen security for virtualised datacentres

The deadly floods that wrecked electronic component factories in Thailand are sending Barracuda disk drive prices rocketing.

We're told a 3TB Seagate Barracuda XT priced £171.95 ($274) on 22 September from eBuyer now costs £289.99 ($462), £118.04 ($188) more. Ouch! That's a 68 per cent price rise.

A Reg reader says the rate of price inflation on that works out at roughly 9 per cent per week or about 9,000 per cent compound per year. A scant consolation is that it's a saving of £60.01 on an earlier £350 list price. ®
