Weekly Price Watch: Hard Drives

A look at the latest and best prices for hard drives.

Welcome back to another hard drive price round up. The pressure to deliver larger, faster hard drives seems to be forcing the prices to drop by a few dollars this week. Most products listed in our database seem to have reduced spot price from last week. IBMs Travelstar 60GH (Ultra ATA/100, 2.5in, 5400RPM) hard drive which had the highest spot price last week ($329) is now at a reduced price of $284. The 3.0GB Auto Backup System PC Card and External hard Drive by CMS has a high spot price of $286.38. And Western Digitals Special Edition WD Caviar 200GB (EIDE, Ultra ATA/100, 7200 RPM) is at the highest spot price of $311.99.
