    Had my 1 year old WD Blue 7200RPM disk die on me last week and picked up a Samsung 850 Evo 500GB replacement for it, had one of these Toshi 480GBs been available I'd likely have picked one up instead.

    I'm perfectly happy with the SATA speed limit, all I want is cheaper drives. I know there's a shortage of NAND but the tinfoil-hat-wearing inner me can't help but think there's artificial scarcity, or just some other stuff going on to keep the prices high, because they have literally no need to drop them; it's not like people will choose to go without instead.

    If we get to around £150/TB, that'd mean PCIe would drop too (is there even a need for them to be double the price of SATA ? They're basically the same innards!), and I can finally stop juggling games around depending on what I want to play. I bought a 512gb on Prime Day, and it's got 12 games on it! 12!

    Go back only a few years and it'd be at least double that.

    Sata holds speeds back heavily, with NVME you can get 2000mb/s read fairly easy.
