Harddisk prices gone mad //at 17:47 //by abe

from the I-never-understood-business-math dept.

Cut and paste from Brack’s SATA harddisk pricelist:

Samsung SpinPoint S166,  HDD,  80GB, 7200rpm, 8.9ms,  8MB Cache, SATA II NCQ, OEM, 3.5'', SAH-HD082GJ   CHF  53.00
Samsung SpinPoint S250,  HDD, 250GB, 7200rpm, 8.9ms,  8MB Cache, SATA-II NCQ, OEM, 3.5'', SAH-HD250HJ   CHF  64.00
[...]
Samsung SpinPoint T166s, HDD, 400GB, 7200rpm, 8.9ms, 16MB Cache, SATA-II NCQ, OEM, 3.5'', SAH-HD403LJ   CHF 109.00
Samsung SpinPoint T166s, HDD, 500GB, 7200rpm, 8.9ms, 16MB Cache, SATA-II NCQ, OEM, 3.5'', SAH-HD501LJ   CHF 101.00

So from 80 GB to 250 GB the price difference is less than CHF 10 and 500 GB harddisks are cheaper than 400 GB harddisks of the same type? We live in a strange world.

And no, none of this harddisks is marked as special price or promotion.

Oh and for all those not having CHF as your daily currency:
