NAND prices decline in H1 2018 due to oversupply

If only the same could happen with DRAM.



Read more about H1 2018's NAND oversupply.

What price decline?

A 240GB SSD now costs more today than it did when I bought one in 2014.

I've seen a few cheap ones lately. Amazon had some Chinese ones for £63 for 480gb. Drevo? something like that.

Let's hope we see some nice price drops on 2TB+ models. That would inch me toward ditching my mechanical storage, and I've been waiting for that day for a looooong time!

I wonder if it's because people aren't building PC's lately due to the high RAM and GPU prices? Now that GPU prices have come back down to fairly reasonable levels, I'm sure overall sales of PC components will start to climb again.

Unfortunately I hate to be the one to bring the bad news. But those drives, 2TB+, won't be cheap anytime soon I'm afraid. They are just too high of a capacity and often the tier one of the respective manufacturers.

Hey Mark,

Thanks for the tip, but you didn't provide any examples of these price drops to back up your article.

Here is an example of amazon prices over the last year for a sammy 500 GB Evo :
