I've been tempted to do a 128x2 raid 0 or 256gb drive, but I don't NEED the upgrade yet.
If 128gb was $50, I'd just buy 4, raid them, and be done with it.
256gb still runs well over the $300 mark (maybe black friday will bring us a deal?!), so for the cost to drop by 1/3, we'll see. I doubt you'd see that drop in 3 months unless someone introduces a super cheap tech and simply beats OCZ at the "I'm the cheapest SSD" game.
I payed $380 back in 2009 for an OCZ agility 120gb. I bought a 256gb for the same price either earlier this year or end of last year. That's a heck of an improvement, but it was still 3 years to cut the price in half...
With HDD pricing increasing, there will be more demand of SSDs, or at least people considering finally moving to them. I can't see increase demand lowering SSD prices at all. Hopefully, we don't see stagnation in price drops, but SSDs just don't flucutate in prices like ram does every generation.
I would be happy to see the M4 256GB at the $300 price point by black Friday. I would regret it by next year, but I doubt I would need more Storage by then.
