Soon. Within the next year prices will dip pretty low, and beyond that, 2-3 years I'm guessing that 256+GB capacities will be under $200.

Yes. There was a big flood in Tailand where most of the world's drives were manufactured knocking out many of the factories there. If what I've seen is right, the only big-name brand that wasn't affected was Seagate, but now their cost is higher because they can't match all of the extra demand.
