Better stock on a few extras for NAS backups before prices shoot up.

I have not had any spinning rust in my system for almost 2 years now. I don't see them closing as a big surprise. I have no problem with this.

I don't think the prices will go up. The enterprice is going towards SSD's, so there demand is going down.
It's the same with normal PC's. To start with the SSD's meant double sales, as building a new PC meant a small SSD and a large mechanical drive. Today you can just buy a fairly big SSD.
