I think we may be finally witnessing the turning point for SSD's.

4TB is insane. I'd rather have two 2TB's in RAID1 because there's no way I will ever accumulate that much data. Pricing sounds very good though.

Meh I've already passed the turning point.

Right now 256gb for a boot SSD is more than enough.

Right now a 480gb SSD for game storage is more than enough. I don't need 2000 games downloaded on my PC that I don't play.

Right now music and movies and so on do not need to be put on an SSD. Honestly that's just ridiculous.

The way my rig is built the drives are all in the right hand side panel so I never hear them. The only big advantage I can see for these massive SSDs is that little tiny ITX rigs will be able to have the same sort of storage as a desktop PC due to the drives being smaller.

Having an SSD for 'data' does not make things download any quicker.

With all of that moaning though I'm sure within a few years there will be no more mechanical drives any way so I will have them like it or not

I've been all ssd since I built my first pc. Using them as a data drive is still beneficial. All my programs and files that are associated with them(music, games, etc) instantly load. It's a huge deal imo. Using any computer without an ssd takes forever to load in comparison and I'm constantly tapping my fingers against the mouse waiting for it to load. So unlike you ALX imo its very worth it and seeing 4tb drives really makes me want to get them
