    Default Insane Hard Drive

    So I was looking on Staples where I'm getting my hard drive soon, and I came across this overly expensive 600gb HDD. Guess I'm more computer illiterate than I thought, but this thing costs practically $1 per gb, anyone able to tell me why?

    The SAS interface means it's meant for file servers.

    That 15k RPM is what amps up the cost the most. Average hard drives are 7.2k.

    Unless you are rocking an HP DL380 G5,6,7, or 8....the drive is useless. I do have a HP DL380 G5 at home but I would need at least two of those for it to be useful.

    It's a server drive and yes they are very expensive

    Didn't know Staples outlet near me actually had businesses that needed something like these. Couldn't imagine the price for one that had 2TB capacity. Thanks for the info!

    They carry that sort of thing for those businesses who don't plan ahead. They loose a drive and don't have spares they will run down to staples and bend over for the drive. Often its small businesses who end up doing this.
