A little hicup here
"With SSD consuming less power, producing less noise and offering more reliability than SSDs "

By the time 1TB SSD's get down in price I'll be to old and slow to care

Fixed.

Yeah, it will be interesting to see what HDD makers will do moving forward. Western Digital has already purchased Sandisk, so I guess that is their plan.

it will be along time b4 HDD's are not needed, you will need 1-2 TB SSD's to be down below the £100 and by then you could be seeing 4TB HDD's at the same price. The way games are going up in size it will not be long before a 1TB isn't enough for game storage

Aye, it will be a long time before HDDs die out. Even if what Samsung says is true HDDs will still offer 2x the capacity of a similarly priced SSD in 2020.

SSDs falling in price.

I have a Samsung Evo 120 in an old AMD set up with an external USB 3 2TB HDD. In my latest set up which is Intel Skylake based, I have 2 x Samsung 950 Pro NVMe M.2 512Gb plus an external 2TB HDD which I use for back up only. I have all that I need, and no, I won't be tempted to buy the Samsung 960 Pro ! SSD's have been getting cheaper for a long time now and as for NVMe M.2 well the price did drop, I picked up one on Amazon for £240 six months ago but it would seem that they have now risen to £280-£290.
