Average Selling Prices of Hard Disk Drives Gradually Returning to Historical Levels.
Looking at the graph, it appears that the prices have leveled off, not that they are slowly returning to previous levels. That is only part of the picture though; the other part being capacity, which hasn't improved significantly over the same time period.
Idiots... they could make the same money by selling more cheaper as they make by selling less more expensive and we could all be happy...

I wont forget but what options do I have when I need more storage
For prices to drop, you'll either need real competition or clawing back market share - especially when the market is falling. Not when Zer Beancounter's nightmare, "Annual Growth [of Market Share]", is running amok, of course. Seagate's MO is justifying their cheapo-skato-ness whereas WD's MO is ZCF's fav, "Eet's a seekret, jawhol". Especially the areal density and their greeny-looney secrets. These 2 being on different platforms much akin to The Good Cop, Bad Cop Act, Hard Drive prices aren't going to go back to the Good Ole Days, they are going where even Mr Spock has not gone before. Yes, eets guessing time and calling that, "Inside Info". II like, "Hard Drive prices going back to "normal". What planet are people living on, eh? The one which create news and not merely reporting it - especially when The Real News is a word dirtier than any Ole Monopoly could imagine. One reason why "Democratising The Globe" needs Malevolence as its Leader. All Hail Seagate und WD.
