   What a useful script! It definitely shows how the price of hard drives keeps going down, regardless of holiday prices and other swings.

What this script does

This script works by querying Price Watch every 6 hours and keeping record of the average drive prices. The average for each drive is calculated by averaging the 10 cheapest drive prices together. This price is stored in a database along with a time stamp.

The column labeled "currently" indicates weather the most current price is above or below the 30 day average. Prices above average are labeled "higher" and those below are labeled "lower". When a drive is at it's best price in the last 30 days, it is labeled "lowest".

The graphs for each drive are a plot of price/gig over the past 30 days. This helps give a visual indication to where the current price of the drive stands.

Keep in mind that price/gig isn't the only consideration when buying a drive. Factors such as cache, warranty and drive performance are all important. We assume by using this page, you understand this already.
