    You don't need to rob me, just ask me politely...
    Please can I have a Blade? haha


    I love this thread. Lot of good points going in both directions. In all honesty it only takes one small discovery or disaster to change everything we know of. The floods in Taiwan that caused a spike in HDD prices was a good example. It actually caused a run on SSDs because the price per GB ended up being closer, which then led to SSD price competition. It worked out for us all. Now HDD prices are back to cheap as hell. Yesterday TD had 3TB for $79 HERE. Right next to it is a 500GB SSD for $179. 6x the space for 1/3 of the price? This is a perfect example of why HDDs have not gone away and are not likely to go away any time soon.

    On that same token a small change in processing could lead to NAND prices hitting the floor, just like USB flash drives did. Remember when thumb drives were advertised in MB instead of GB? 16Mb, 64Mb, wow! 128Mb flash drive! Only $90!! Now you can pick up a 32GB flash drive at Micro Center checkout lane for $12! It can happen with SSDs but I just don't think it will happen because the HDD manufacturers are not sitting on their hands waiting to be put out of business or to rely on penny margins in an overly competitive NAND market. When SSDs get to 1TB drives for around $100, maybe $150 things may shift. Until then 4TB. 6TB and 8TB HDDs are here now and cost less than the 1TB ssd.

    Blade? Pretty-Please?!

    Even if SSD prices drop to rock bottom prices, why should I get rid of functioning drives that still have 4 years left on a five-year warranty? I will not spend money to replace my spinners if they still function well.
    Future buys would be SSDs from that point on though. They're better in a lot of ways.

    Oh no Neil. Im with you on that. Wouldn't spend the money to replace existing working drives. That would be wasteful. Only new purchases would be SSDs if the $/GB was close or even.

    Blade??? Which Blade...
    Last gasp of a dying technology?-blade1.jpgLast gasp of a dying technology?-blade2.jpgLast gasp of a dying technology?-bladetrinity.jpgLast gasp of a dying technology?-blade-runner.jpg

    PS. OK now let be serious for a moment, I bought one 960GB SSD Crucial M500 drive more than a year and half ago from Amazon (sadly NewEgg doesn't ships to Peru), for an excellent promotion price ($434.99), with DHL (4 days shipment) + Peruvian Taxes, total cost in my hands was $535.
    Now this SSD drive cost $305 + free shipping, and the newer M550 1TB cost $360(). I think those are really god prices for 1TB SSD drives ($0.30 - $0.36 per GB ).

    Your Blades is bad actor, tax evaders and former inmate of the US Federal Penitentiary. Blade 1 was the best. He still has more money than I ever will.


    On a $/GB basis those drives dont look bad at all. I still cant see myself dropping $300 on a drive. I didnt do it for platter drives when large sizes came out and I dont see me making the jump this time around either. Im too cheap!

    I know what you mean, many people still doesn't want to spend $300-$400 on an 1TB SSD drive yet, but I always ask myself one simple question:"if I'm ready to spend $800-$1000 on an WC parts, $300 or more for a CPU, $400-$1000+ for a GPU(s), $150-$250 for a case...", then instead to buy an 1TB plate drive with $80-$120, I'll add $150-$200 more and will buy an 1TB SSD drive, but that's just me...

    I was making a joke,.....We should remember that he's paid his debt to society and that he was awesome in "White Men Can't Jump" (as was Rosie)

    Ill believe it when I see it mister. The cost will probably still be too costly for most to afford thus they will stick with platter drives for most of their storage. by then they will have a 2-3TB SSD for a boot drive and a 10-20TB drive for storage. Ill still win!!!

    Could be...I dunno. At some point the magic will happen, and SSD's will be cheap... 5 years is a long long time in PC terms...it'll be interesting to see how it falls out...
