[Bit-tech] Hard drive pricing high through 2014, claims analyst - Page 6

Hell for all we know 10 years from now there might be 1TB ssd's for $200 running speeds over 1000MB/s

You are misinterpreting my reply, I am not suggesting that SSDs will NOT replace HDDs. My previous reply was to point out that it won't be happening in the near future, and that your dreams of 500GB for $100 - $150 by 2014 is impossible. Maybe it will take a decade or two for SSDs to completely take over, but it will do it eventually.

I don't think I am that out of the loop as I just saw this interview last year. I went back and searched for the interview (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iIqFU48xqQU), the Corsair Rep said that they have no intentions of creating 1TB and are capping out at the 240GB-480GB range for now.

I actually bought a 2TB Caviar Black on sale for $119 literally a month before the floods. Now the same drive is nearing $300. Almost like buying Apple stock in 1997 and still having it today. lachen.gif

Gosh I know...I am temped to ebay some of the HDDs I bought right before this fiasco. The HDDs I replaced were still working, but were just getting old so I could use them for some less important issues.

Still a gamble I guess.

If this is true, my media server plans just got shot DOA. It's true that SSDs need and will become the norm considering their use (performance for active apps), but it just sucks that they will become the standard for low use storage (kinda a waste until the tech changes to accommodate that need).

750GB + 500GB + 60GB + 60GB... enough to ride me out for two years? Not sure. Each project I do is 30gb of source data easily. Four projects a year plus some games and music isn't looking good.

As soon as I can get 1 TB for near $100 then I'm jumping

This is a report that the rich are making the consumers pay for their losses because insurance will not cover them in Thailand.....

The only thing that doesn't make sense is, it was a Western Digital Plant that got flooded, not Seagate or Samsung, etc...

Still passing on the cost of doing business in foreign lands w/out insurance is not something I'm readily willing to pay for....

They should suffer the loss, not consumers....

With prices for HDD where they are, people are going to start flocking to SSDs.... (If they haven't already)
(Or is this just a ploy to get us to buy their overstock of crappy SSDs???? <<< Most likely I'm thinking)

Enough speculation though, this sucks, and there is nothing we can do about it, as consumers that is...

The only thing positive in all of this is, computers will go up in price, and for us computer techs, that's a good thing...

I'm sick of these $150 - $300 computers, they need to vanish, like forever...

They could recover those "losses" by building the hard drive storage market on SSDs thus replacing these greedy punks.

THIS.

Damn them all to hell!!!!

I was really needing for those prices to go down THIS year! I've got another build coming up this year and the HDD blows it out of budget! GRRR! I'm just glad I got my 2TB Green back in October for $69. biggrin.gif Then again, this is all speculation in the end. Hopefully it doesn't pan out to be like this...
