Recommendations for replacing Seagate Barracuda 7200.14(ST3000DM001)

Recommended Posts

In that case I got three rather cheap drives where I don't know what they are up to:

Intenso is just reselling Toshiba MD drives in volume (or whatever cheapest drive they get their hands on). A price drop after listing a new model is nothing unusual. The first listings are usually a MSRP which will then be adjusted to a real price, once the distributor delivers actual drives. This is just a sign of a functioning market.

For me it looks like the the two vendor oligopoly settled on rather high rates, while Toshiba with a low market share seems to do aggressive pricing for 3.5in drives. This is a good thing from a customer's perspective.
