    Re: SanDisk 6TB and 8TB SSDs coming in 2016

    So according to that chart, storage SSDs were far more expensive than server SSDs?

    Ok, I know they just ****ed up the legend, but still, would make you not really want to trust the company who put that together with anything that requires attention to detail....

    Till gonna wait 'till SSD Cost/GB is no more than double that of conventional HDD's.

    So basically when SSD's have capacities about 4X what they are now for the same price I'll grab one, until then I'll stick to Raided HDD's and Ramdrives.

    That point will probably happen but I'm not sure it'll be 2020, although it might be - currently at the 1TB level, just quickly I can find SSDs as low as 27p per GB, hard drives as low as 3.6p. Considering the uplift in performance SSDs already offer more for your money in every way apart from raw capacity IMHO.

    I prefer Samsung's approach of longer (more reliable) nodes and 3D stacking. We seem to have entered the realm of diminishing returns with the node shrinking strategy.

    Great - so now, instead of a couple of car payments, we can just trade in our cars and be done with it...

    You got it all wrong. Let me break it down.

    SanDisk 4TB = Car trade-in
    6TB = Car + 2 limbs
    8TB = Car + 2 limbs + 2lb sack of saffron + 20g of Moon dust + Jimmy Hoffa's corpse

    On a side note, SanDisk if you need any testers(but I know you don't) I'm your man. =)
