I just can't wait for what the future will hold with less expensive high capacity SSD's. How nice will it be when we have 500 and 1TB options within our price realm ! We'll look back and say remember when..............

Your completely right. I was just looking and a 1TB SSD is $3,000. I even paid $220 for a 120GB SSD!!

I'm thinking in 2 years we'll look back and say remember when we had to deal with 40GB SSD's and run spinners for data......ha ha the good old days. Then you have the Cloud......don't even get me started on it !

The cloud can be a good and bad thing. I think that companies are pushing that too quickly. Think about it if google wanted to convert to cloud based comps and no data was on the local computer...Right now I don't think our cellular networks are capable.

Yeah, I just bought a 1TB HDD (For backups) for $80. But I don't for see the future having low SSD prices. If you think about it they practically last forever compared to an HDD. If everyone switches to SSD at a low price I bet some Hard Drive companies will go out of business.

I once paid $375 for a 730MB Western Digital drive. And I also paid about $225 once for 16MB of RAM.

Well I can't speak for you but I've gone in recent years from 120gb to currently on my desk I have 6 TB's of storage plus my 64gb SSD and countless flash drives. I've become a real storage and back up whore ! So I don't see any drive manufactures demise anytime soon. Even the touted durability of SSD is surely greater than a mechanical spinner but trust me.......something will show later, like "silicon rot" patent pending !

Yes I'm patenting the phrase ! It hasn't happened yet but I'm trying to corner the market when it does or something like it. Like the surface of poorly made cd's that were to last forever.....they don't !
