I'm sincerely sorry, asantas93, for reviving this dead thread once again, but I would just like to point out that RtGScarFaceLS knows nothing
about comparing hard drives and SSD disks. (nor does he know how to keep a thread on topic)
Not once in this whole four page discussion has he mentioned anything about RANDOM
read / write speeds of Solid State Drives or the access times
for HDDs vs SSDs. His evidence of price to performance is based SOLELY on SEQUENTIAL speeds of hard drives which is a huge mistake
Of course it will cost less for you to strap a bunch of cheap hard drives together. And you might actually reach similar sequential speeds.
But when it comes to Solid State Disks, any hard drive can take its access times and its sequential access and shove it far up its anal cavity
