Anyone know why?

Christmas/Boxing day sales haven't been restocked maybe?

my current goto for pricepoint are Toshiba PH3500U-1I72 5TB disks. Still PMR rather than SMR disks too...

Just buy them from Amazon, they cost US$10 to ship. NZ$160 for 2TB. I buy HGST drives, they're meant to be very reliable.
