Hard drive prices down across the board


Hard drive prices down across the board

Hard drive prices are down this month among all of the categories we track. The biggest drop is for the 750GB SATA drive, down 10% since last month to $180, part of its continued six-month slide. Among tape drives, the SDLT-320 dropped, but SDLT-600 rose 4% and is up overall since the summer. The cost of an LTO-4 drive keeps going down, paring a little more than 6% off its price this month. Media prices haven't budged much over the past few months, although LTO-3 and LTO-4 registered drops of approximately 5% and 3%, respectively.
