Best news of the year so far.
This is good news I paid $50 for my Intel 320 128gb ssd brand new in early 2014.
I just want a 256gb ssd for BF3, BF4, NFS Shift, GTA4, GTA5, Arma games and a few others. But just cant justify over $100 for one.
I have a 1tb just for games that inlcude Origin.
My steam games on on their own 640gb.
Wish I could get a 1tb ssd that didnt cost as much as my rig.
I have 5 SSD, in my system
1 128gb samsung 840 pro OS only
2 250gb samsung evo. Steam
3 250gb samsung evo. origin
4 128gb samsung 830. uplay
5 128gb crucial M4. apps and Programs
6 500gb USB drive. backups
7 1 tv HDD cradle 1TB. Backups
I plan on upgrading sometime this year 4 and 5 to 250gb Samsung SSD
Psst! Vidra, over here. Shhh, dont tell anyone but.. They even have ram chips now that are bigger than 128mb
The cheapest 256GB SSD available to me is the Crucial MX100 for $145
I can't see the price just dropping like that : /
I hope this doesn't end up like bill gates stating 640kb ram is plenty
1. Bill Gates never said that.
2. Even if he did say that, he was right (at the time). That was plenty of memory for any home or office PC. Even if Bill said/agreed to the statement, I think he would conclude that it doesn't reflect the demands of the future.
3. There are people in these forums who would argue 0.5TB isn't enough for the average person.
4. Not sure what that quote has to do with the prices of SSDs dropping.
This is good news, hopefully 500gb SSD's prices
Will come down this year for my next upgrade will retire my Samsung 840pro 256GB to my Asus gaming laptop.
Wowo how about that....
I clearly remember being the first kid on the block with my two 120gb vertex turbos that set me back a whopping $525 a piece.....:bang:! Raided them since day one and have never looked back on anything less albeit obvious upgrades to my vertex 4's in a raid 0.
Some retailers think reduced price = higher profit margin, so the savings aren't passed on to customers as they should be.
More room for taxes, Brazilian politicians love it.
Lol, it's a really small netbook. Kidding
4. there is a guy making predictions on the tech sector
Been using SSD's for 4 years now. Got 2x Crucial 512GB SSD's in RAID 0 for my main drive and another 1TB Samsung Evo 840 SSD as my backup drive. Love the speedy performance
Cant really see this happening in the UK tbh. We get ****ed on prices over here.
Just moved my Windows drive onto a nice Samsung SSD, and it's pretty nice so far...
