Retail Disk prices, Enterprise drives, grouped by manufacturer & type

Table of current retail prices for various types of disk with cost-per-GB.
Only Internal drives, Hard Disks.

Disclaimer: This table is for my own point-in-time reference, does not carry any implicit or explicit recommendations or endorsement for the retailer, vendor or technologies.

Most drives are from a single manufacturer, Western Digital, to allow like-for-like comparisons.
Most manufacturers are close to the same pricing for the same specs.
  • There is ~$25 extra for SAS interface over SATA [1TB WD 'RE', SAS vs SATA]
  • There's ~$30/TB extra for higher spec drives [2TB & 3TB, WD SATA, NAS vs RE]
  • WD sell four 3.5" 1TB drives [03, 04, 26, 41]
    • SAS vs SATA, ~$25
    • about double for 10,000RPM over 7,200RPM (Velociraptor vs RE)
    • about 25% less for the Intellipower, 'Capacity' drive
  • While it's cheaper with Seagate to go from 15,000RPM/3.5" to 10,000RPM/2.5", there's no simple relation for the discount.
Western Digital list these "Purchase Decision Criteria" for drives:
  • Capacity [GB]
  • Workload Capability [duty cycle or TB read/write per year]
  • Reliability [MTBF and BER]
  • Cost/GB
  • Performance [sustained throughput,  latency or IO/sec = {RPM, seek time}]
  • Power used [not included by WD]
  • Racking density [not included by WD]

Commercially RAM and disk drives are linked to commodities, the price fluctuates.
We should do some bench testing on each, new, run them to failure.
Western Digital seemed to be the worst performer, but I don't have data as to when they were made.
