Consumers benefit again

According to reports, we may witness a price war in the hard drive business industry. At least this is what Seagate Technology CEO Bill Watkins said on Wednesday. Seagate is currently the world's largest hard drive manufacturer and competes with such companies as Western Digital, Hitachi, Samsung and Toshiba. According to Watkins "If pricing doesn't drop for us, it'll be an upside." Seagate is expecting stiff price cutting from its competitors through into 2007.

You figure, the price will fall anyway for hard drives because of bigger sizes coming out anyway. You can get a maxtor 160gb for like 80 after rebates.

You can get a 320GB hard-drive for under $100.
