    My largest array is running out of space, could really do with some cheaper 3TB's... think I might just try and wait out until they get to nearer the £100 mark again though. The problem is the discrepancy in estimates as to when that might be.

    I managed to pick one up for £107.99 delivered with voucher HDRIVE10 last week. They've put the price up by £10 now though.
