[Bit-tech] Hard drive pricing high through 2014, claims analyst - Page 5

Your suggesting that ssd's will NOT replace hard drives in the next 10 years? I beg to differ. Right now a 500gb SSD would be way to expensive, but 5 years from now it could be reasonable, 10 years from now may be the norm. Hell for all we know 10 years from now there might be 1TB ssd's for $200 running speeds over 1000MB/s

I think you're out of the loop... do some research... Corsair has some 480GB capacity. I'll take 480GB SSD over 500GB HDD anytime if I have the money.

This will just allow SSD's to stay high in price, as there is no incentive now to compete with lowering their prices to compete with HDD's.

competition hun, SSD manufacturers will find a way to make them cheaper to build and drop prices to HDDs or below, thus rendering an HDD a such POS that you can use the platters for frisbees.

This was pretty much expected...price hikes always take a long time to come back down; naturally any way. Some times there are some legal actions that can speed it along, but even then it takes a while for the consumer to see a price drop.

Heh, I replaced about every HDD in my home (about 4TB worth) literally days before the news of the flood came out and prices started going up. Just because I felt it was time...I need to listen to my gut feeling more often it seems.

I don't know, they may have a point. SSD's compete mainly with other SSDs right now mainly due to the low amount of storage on them. As storage capacity increases they will start to compete with HDD more. They will of course have the performance edge, but the price aspect will become important as well. Especially when you consider that a RAID 0 array isn't THAT much slower than an SSD in much of anything but benchmarks and boot times. So the price of HDDs may very well effect the price of SSDs

Most likely bad personal experience on my behalf.

The current dieing WD is around 12 months old, the external prior to that was around 12 months old and the 2 internals prior to that both died around 2 years of age.
Although yesterday I've cracked open said dieing external and mounted internally (taking out a drive) and it seems to be doing better and somehow having less errors / SMART errors. Still dubious as to storing anything important on it though.

The only other externals I have now are 2 Maxtor personal storage 3200. To which, both have 320GB Seagate Barracuda drives within the casing.

Never had an issue with a Seagate, Hitachi or Samsung drives nor my old IDE Quantum Fireball drive.

I suppose its luck of the draw really....

When Hitachi and Samsung sold their hard drive divisions to Western Digital and Seagate, it was inevitable that prices would rise. Hitachi was one of the biggest reasons why hard drives dropped in cost the last few years due to their aggressive price under-cutting.

Anybody could have seen this coming from a mile away. They are going to get used to getting $150+ for a TB drive and aren't going to want to sell them for $50 anymore. The key thing in that article is that they are apparently going to use that extra cash to fund R&D into making better HDD's to compete with SSD's. It's not like they are just sticking it in their pockets....
