Agreed. I haven't bought a Seagate in years, on purpose. But if someone really needs a hard disk, Seagate external drives seem to be the most commonly available at reasonable prices.
I haven't seen any reasonably priced Hitachis or Samsungs anywhere.
Thankfully, I bought a couple of 1.5TB Hitachi Coolspins recently when they were on special for $49.99 at Micro Center. Didn't have any idea what I would ever do with them, but now I'm glad I have them sitting on the shelf at home.
Or, in a couple of weeks, maybe I could sell them on eBay for about $150 each. I think I have 2 or 3 1TB drives around too. I might be able to make enough profit to buy a new iPad2.
