Where did the samsungs go?

Recommended Posts

MSY and UMART both have lost stock of most of their samsung drive range.

 

is there a shortage?

 

Gamedude still has them, but at least one of the capacities are down to 'NO STOCK'

 

Ive used them for years including the most recent batch, no issues, so i assume theres no recall or anyhting.

 

Hopefully just a shortage....

I also noticed this at MSY down here in Vic about a month ago that all the samsungs dissappeared - also curious as to why.

Yea did not notice that as I only usually buy the 1TB or 500 gig. But it looks bad, because if they run out of stock and are going to get more in, they usually say so and leave the listing for each out of stock product on the page.

 

So the fact that they are not even listed may mean that they are not, or cannot, get in the other sizes. :(

There is a shortage on HDD, M/B's and GPU's at the moment.

 

Due partly to chinese new year and slow down of production overseas.

cheers for that.

Yeah I only buy 1TB's as well. No problem getting them and at the current prices woohoo (can get them from pcshopper if you order for $155). Got two 1TB's now :D

Super Sheep?

 

Lambo.

:P

 

 

Even Altech's stock seems to be very variable ATM. I went to order some Samsung drives about a week ago and they seemed to be out of several sizes I wanted.

yeah, but they run so much hotter :(

 

maybe those 'green' ones dont....

Hotter? My new WD at work runs a lot cooler than the Seagates I'm used to.

I've found that my Green WD is a few degs hotter than my 7200rpm Samsung and Seagate 1TBs. It's also about half as fast. I'd much rather pay the extra ten bucks for the speed it gives. The Seagates are crazy fast, I'll be buying those from now on.
