SSDs are getting cheaper

Is the NAND pricing crisis coming to an end? Let's hope the same thing happens to DRAM.




Read more about SATA SSDs getting cheaper.

Cool

Why not just get a couple of 240's for half the price and run them raid0? Been doing that for 2 years, works great. Most modern boards can handle the Trim function while in a raid array. Better performance, same storage capacity.

The noisiest thing in my system when idle is a 1TB WD Blue drive. When it shuts down the motor periodically, the noise of my system noticeably drops. The only thing I'm craving as an upgrade for my (unfinished) system is a 1TB SSD.

Because that's not nearly the same amount of storage?

They already are. Micron 2TB SSDs have been on sale here like crazy, $350CDN each, about 2 months after I paid $449 each for a pair of the mothers. D'OH!
