Shortage of HDD’s

I have a couple of hard drives on my buy list and I should consider buying them up now.

The floods in Thailand, the second largest exporter of hard disk drives after China, could potentially lead to a shortage of HDD supplies during the current quarter that may last into the first quarter of 2012, said research firm IHS iSuppli on Monday.

Western Digital said its primary manufacturing facility in Thailand was flooded over the weekend, with its secondary site also at risk, raising the possibility of a global shortage of hard disk drives (HDD) in the current quarter.
