Hard Disks

Hi all, by now most people will know about that floods in Thailand. What a lot of peeps won't realise is that a lot of HD's and the relevent parts, were made there. It mainly relates to a Jap company named Nidec. They make motor's for HD's and most of their factory equipment has been wiped out. It maybe as late as the first quater of 2013 before things normalise. Expect to pay around 55 to 60pc extra in price as the current stocks are being consumed quite quickly. You will need to factor this in when planning a build!
