    New drives shouldn't be much more per TB. They were going on sale for around that before Chia mining stupidity. Thankfully that seems to be dying now.

    Wish they'd hire some people - maybe natives or something and arm them with airsoft/BB guns and pay them to hunt down as many as they can.

    Ehh, I dunno how well that would work out. I'm sure a cat could easily take down a crow but if it caws in some buddies and mobs the cat - well then dead cat.

    Impossible to find new 1TB 9.5mm drives that cheap locally now, or even import that cheap with proper buyer protection
    Used going rate is more like double that now which is why I bought 2.

    Are they native birds? Can't kill native animals here it's illegal.
    Well, in some cases some species can be culled with special licenses but idk about any birds.
    Magpies are the swoopers over here when they're nesting.

    It was a good deal. I was commenting that the $/TB cost should be lower than it is.

    Oh yeah for sure. I grabbed a 4TB ext when I was in town and it was $20aud more than last time I got one (last year?).
    All the larger drives I looked at were ridiculous prices imo. Nothing cheap on ebay.

    What I paid for those laptop drives is way more than what I would normally pay for similar stuff through work (usually $1 each), but drives are getting harder to find there.
    I guess most people are pulling drives from whatever before donating. The Toshiba laptop I got still had 500GB drive in it but I needed to swap it out due to surface errors.
    I also salvaged a 3.5" 500GB drive from a PVR at work on the same day.

    But most stuff: PVR's, PS3 and 360 consoles seem to have drives pulled when we get them atm. It's only really a recent thing.
    Times are tough for a lot of people I guess.

    I'd love to get a 10TB hard-drive. To store all my games on.

    The 16GB of DDR3 (Corsair) I got was nearly half the price of what it would normally fetch.
    Listing had errors, I contacted the seller to point those out and to clarify what was there, made a cheap offer and it was accepted immediately

    They're too expensive though
    I mean getting ten of those 1TB drives I got would be cheaper.

    *PSA* Wii Redump collector's can now unscrub ISO files. So scrubbed games can now be verified. You can find the program to do this here

    The cheapest price I've seen in a while was $15/TB for a 12TB drive. I thought about buying one or two but I've been pruning my storage and don't need to expand for now.

    It would be nice if prices started dropping faster since sales are down. I expect they'll milk it out as much as possible.
