It's not THAT crazy, the drive manufacturers saw demand stay constant while supply dwindled, there response was to raise prices across the board. They really have no need to drop them again, as quickly as they had been before the flooding. As soon as the first major producer drops prices back to normal levels the others will follow suite, but no one wants to be the first, since people are still buying them at inflated prices.

I understand the law of supply and demand, I am merely expressing surprise that the effect has lasted for over two years. :)
