With tech you can always wait longer and prices will drop. You have to make a decision at some time though especially if you need something as a necessity and not a luxury. That said some price drops does not happen gradually but more like "suddenly" like ssd prices over the last few months. Usually after such "sudden" drops the price "evens" out more or less which is what I think has happened with ssd pricing. I could be wrong though.

I cannot see us paying 1K for a 1TB SSD in the short term, so like the OP mentions he wants to buy "in the next couple of months" - I don't see major price changes.
Until a factory burns down. Like what happened years ago with RAM :confused: or was that flooding.

Yeah I'm in no rush to buy. Can wait for a bargain if there is one, hence why I posted here.

No bargains at the moment. But when there comes one up one has usually to jump fast before all is sold out, so have your cash handy ;) Bargains aside, I still think that seagate 500gb I mentioned is a good deal - comes with a 10 year limited warranty

Just got a call from RARU.
They apologized and said the unit does not come with hard drive.
Hope you hadn't already paid, Raru takes weeks to process refunds, probably still do everything on paper ledgers over there...

After checking on an abacus?
I'm pretty sure they use the finest abacus with their leather bound ledger. They got salty with me when I had the audacity to ask what the hold up was after waiting for a week, they said refunds take 7-15 days to process and then up to a week after that to reflect.

Can't understand how a refund can take more than half a month.

I'm certain they're running some sort of short term loan scheme.

Basically using customers for interest free trade finance
That's exactly what I was thinking.
Pretty unprofessional and from all other angles they seem like a legit operation. There can be no other reason though, every other online store I've requested credit refunds from have processed them within 48hrs.
