The lowest price is higher than the expected price.

Expected price has nothing to do with the drive’s lowest price.

If you could expand on what the Expected Price is, beyond “the expected price for the capacity. Do not purchase if the price is higher than the Expected Price!”, that’d be great.

Thanks

Basically, the expected price is where the drive normally drops down to in price on sales. It’s not the historical low price, but the drives reach the “expected price” extremely often. So it’s worth waiting for those price tiers.

Ah, I think some (myself included) confused expected price with MSRP.
