    currently the HDD seems to have stagnated prices. I am not really tempted to buy another drive even I could use additional space. Lets see if that development will speed up availability of consumer friendly drives on the market or not

    Yeah I'm kind of like this too... I keep thinking shouldn't larger hard drives really be a bit cheaper by now considering they keep saying they're going to make bigger and bigger. I've honestly been looking at swapping out my existing hard drives for ssd's and even thinking should I bother with hard drives in my next build because I'm not sure they make financial sense at the current prices.

    Yup - seems like many people just pay whatever the price is. Most I know never use all of their hard drives anyhoo they are on different devices. Did an upgrade for someone beginning of year and changed his boot hdd for an ssd. He was clueless now he turns on pc he hasn't used for years
    Old puter - still good enuff till I save some pennies!

    Re: Next-gen HAMR platters target 80TB 3.5-inch HDDs

    I don't have room in my current setup as it is a modified case and the new hardware are just thrown in, and so my 4TB "spinner" and my 256GB SSD well they just lie on top of the DVD drive and are only loosely secured.
    But the case i am working on ( just left worktable / living room work table ) will retain 1 of its original 3 drive cages, and its location for 2 SSD drives.
    Even when i plan to populate my nvme slots on the motherboard, then "really big" storage i am not able to afford in those slots, and that's where slow SSD and "spinners" come in.
    And even with a higher end PC, well when i output say 4K/60 video from my editing software, well that still happen at a rate where a spinning disk can keep up.
    But i will like to get another 4 or larger TB spinning disk, but that will have to wait a while.

    It's the new backup medium. Basically a really fast tape drive

    I haven't purchased rotating rust for years, not sure I ever will again.
