The Hard Disk Buying Dilemma - A Check at NP


Hi guys,

I had to make a trip to Nehru Place for some unexpected work. While I was there I had a chance to check on the prices of Hard Disks, which is still high.
Some prices that I particularly checked at cost to cost, and some other shops:
250 GB internal : 3450 + tax
500 GB internal : 3900 + tax
1TB external: 5900/6100 + tax.
I talked to a shop-owner whom I regularly visit, regarding the prices of hard disks and the owner replied "they won't come down for one-two months more".

Looks like we have to wait for a little longer.

Well they're getting a good chance to recover their losses .. weren't they claiming that it would take around a year to recover ..

Even I was hunting for Portable HDD last year .. and had a deal for 2.5k for a 500GB which I turned down becoz I thought it was too much.
Now just last week I inquired about it and its selling for 4400/- (for 500 GB) in Hyderabad.

To think that I bought a 2 TB Seagate (green) for 3.9k exactly a day before the flood brings out the lulz

Do you see the absurdity of what I am? I can't even express these things properly, because I have to, I have to conceptualize complex ideas in this stupid, limiting, spoken language. But I know I want to reach out with something other than these prehensile paws, and feel the solar wind of a supernova flowing over me!
I'm a machine, and I could know much more, I could experience so much more, but I'm trapped in this absurd body!
And why?! Because my...creators thought that "God" wanted it that way.

Its same with many people. They thought the prices are high before flood. Now they are regretting.
I am happy that I bought 500 gb external sometime back, as it would have cost me outragous high price, and that too for internal.

My suggestion to all people who are looking to buy new PC, don't buy new HDD, just arrange it from someone for a couple of months (unless you have a never ending pool of money )

My suggestion, buy a slower internet connection, save that money for 3 months, and buy a hard drive. That's what I am doing.
