    Samsung is going to introduce a 4TB Pro model SSD during CES on the 850 range. We've already seen the EVO model being released at that capacity, however a new PRO model will be added to the line-up a...

    Been using a couple of 1TB 850's in RAID 0 as my main drive. Crystaldisk shows around 1000 read and 1000 write speed. It's a pretty decent. Not as fast as the 500GB Samsung 960 EVO i have in my laptop but still very decent compared to a regular HDD.

    Nice that looks like a pretty good SSD for both storage and OS related software and such though I'm guessing cost is probably going to be a bit high?
    (To put it mildly, definitively going to replace mechanical HDD's one day but not quite yet.)

    So basically 10 thousand dollars for an ssd that came out years ago? WTF is wrong with ssd pricing to sizes? I can get a 5TB platter for 140 bucks.

    SSD's still need to come a ways. Still too much money for what you get IMO. Though I am getting the 512GB 960 EVO. Just sucks that they are still high for the space you get.

    I'll go even further. I want 10TB of SSD for free today. That would be even better. Too bad engineers, factory workers, etc. have to be payed.

    I don't know about free, or even 10TB of storage. And those employees need to be paid. No one is talking about re-inventing the wheel. Just give me a freaking break on the prices of an older ssd.

    Nothing earth shattering here. No one wants a free ride. Just better pricing. The world isn't ending either.

    You are talking as if Samsung were the only company able to produce SSD and that they price their products as if there were no other companies willing to try to compete (performance, size and price wise).
    If you think that making fast and cheap SSD is easy, please, enter the SSD market and blow people's minds away producing better products than Samsung and cheaper too! You will also make so much money! (Or so you say)

    they said that 3 years ago and it been said multiple times SSD prices would drop to HDD price every years since it still hasnt happen.


    1tb ssd - 200$ at very lest
    1tb hdd- 39$
    6tb hdd - can be had for same price of 1tb ssd

    they all the ssd manufacturers are all milking the market.

    I like my SSD but Still use HDD as my main storage only OS on SSD they still way to expensive. And one has to keep in mind hdd prices have been high ever since that tsunami/flood that took out many of the plants.

    So MLC is considered "pro" now?? And there is an even worse / cheaper option of TLC for mainstream?

    I thought MLC was the mainstream a few years ago and the "pro" level drives were SLC?

    I think there's cheaper than TLC now or it might just be the way to stack them but it does impact overall durability and life time even further though they're still fairly robust compared to mechanical drives.
    (Those stress-tests done with attempting to kill several popular SSD models certainly showed how sturdy some of them were even after exceeding the specified read/write total.)

    EDIT: Yep, QLC for quad cell.
    http://www.techporn.ph/tlc-is-becoming-the-mainstream-for-ssd-in-the-consumer-market/
    (Yeah that was indeed the first result from Google, some interesting names on these tech sites heh.)

    Number wise SLC is the fastest and has a cycle between 50.000 to 100.000, MLC is a bit slower and cycle is ~10.000 and then TLC as a bit slower again and cycle of ~1000 and now QLC as the slowest with a cycle of ? (100?)

    (TLC can still do some 10 years or so of active read/write unless it's a very high amount of data written daily from how I understand it.)

    EDIT: Not having much luck finding SLC devices, let alone high storage capacity ones.
    (TLC is likely more than fine but it would be fun to compare costs and the like if there even are any consumer grade SLC SSD units out there.)

    Stop getting your info in TMZ and you won't get disappointed when "next year's batteries will last for days", when "in 3 years carbon nanotubes will cure cancer" or when "next year SSD prices will drop to HDD prices" don't come true.
    There's still a way to go, and it's not this year, and it's not next year.

    Stop whining about SSD prices not being what you'd like them to be, and get a hold of realistic expectations: we're not in the XX century anymore. Tech doesn't get cheaper and faster as quick as it used to.
