[XBIT] Latest SSD Prices Hit $0.65 per Gigabyte, OCZ Forecasts Further Drop of Costs - Page 17

post #161 of 200
Still a long way from the $0.07/gb prices we were enjoying with hard drives a year ago.

Oh I dunno, maybe because they are both storage devices?

Then we should be comparing HDDs to tape drives as well anytime HDD prices are brought up?

Or L1 vs RAM since they both store data, right?


Do people compare sports cars to trucks when making purchasing decisions? No, different pricing for different usage.

Well, no, not unless said 'sports car' has tech in it with potential to replace the 'trucks' in the future. I was under the impression that solid state storage would eventually replace magnetic platter storage except in certain niche applications, much like what HDDs did to tape drives. Until now, I hadn't any reason to believe SSDs would only operate next to hard drives, but excuse me for not knowing the myriad of reasons that must exist to prove me wrong here.

That got hostile really fast... it's sad because HDD prices shot up while SSD prices came down. I know they are the future, and sizes will only go up, but I would rather spend $200 and get a 3Tb drive then a 256Gb SSD for long-term storage.

They have different uses, yes. OCN loves to jump on the opportunity to compare cars though, does anybody notice that? Because automobiles are exactly like electronics tongue.gif

It is doubtful that NAND-based SSDs will supplant HDDs. NAND are coming to a process limitation at around 15-20nm. Magnetic storage has room to get denser with HAMR and/or bit-patterned media.

Even if NAND production matures and yields go up.... they will not be able to catch up to HDDs for mass storage in terms of price any time soon.
