last week newegg had a shellshocker deal for a 120gb ssd for $70 without tax and shipping (about $0.58 per gigabyte).Told a friend about it and now i need to install it in his system later. Also newegg weekend express deals have a 512GB crucial drive for $345 (0.67 per gigabyte).
Just over a year ago it cost me about $1.5 per gigabyte.
Yup; I have been seeing a lot of it to lately, and it seems faster and faster. This is the big thing to me though, I have a 64 GB SSD, and the only thing I really see a major advantage to is the OS. I guess maybe if I did major photo, video, or sound production I may see more of an advantage. I do small amounts of those things and it does not seem to be a huge deal to me really. Now with my OS running faster and more fluid as it has been since I got it the upgrade is across the board as the OS controls everything. I think until the drives drop to comparable prices to a standard HD it will most likely be my main concern. I could see easily a good use for between 90-128GB for that but would rather have raided 10,000 rpm drives I would think for the storage side of things which would include pictures, music, video, and multimedia as they were generally developed for a standard HD and therefore run fine as is even with high density sound files (grades above MP3 etc) and others. I am not saying I don't see a good enough performance envelope I am more saying the needs for the performance is limited to specific types of software as the other types are really made to be used on a standard HD in a lot of aspect's anyway.
