    It says £119.98, do you have a discount code?
    At the £119.98 price it is about 47p per GB.

    Damn, that's not a fall, that is more like a humongous spike!

    Can't believe how much the prices have come down. I paid about £1/GB a few months ago for my M4.

    Re: News - Higher capacity SSD drive prices falling in line

    "Normal hard drives" are finally reaching the pricing levels just before the Thai floods.
    I brought a pair of 2TB Seagate Green drives exactly a year ago - they were £60 each back in late 2011, and now, the cheapest 2TB drives are around £70.

    Considering they hit over £200 each at their peak, it's much easier to swallow now (imagine though if the decision nowadays was between a high capacity HDD, or a SSD with 1/4 of the capacity at the same price!), but the price decline does seem to be slowing down (according to The Tech Report).

    Looking forward to £200 512 SSDs when they arrive!

    Cutting supply to raise prices is contrary to international corruption law if the manufacturers act together to do it.

    Been using an Intel 80GB G2 for several years with no problems. I see lots of anecdotal evidence of medium/long-term stability of SSDs. I've known of more hard drive failures than SSD failures (partly because of the far more widespread prevalence of HDDs of course). In fact, while I think about it, I don't know anyone who has had an SSD failure (and I've witnessed lots of HDD failures in that same time frame).

    Do you have a particular reference for the comparatively high failure rate of SSDs that you imply?

    Re: News - Higher capacity SSD drive prices falling in line

    OCZ and SandForce don't have a great record colloquially, but to suggest that SSDs are inherently unreliable is pretty daft.
