    It's games that are keeping the mechanical drives in my system. To replace them with SSD I would need 4TB SSD and thats a bit beyond my price point right now.

    It's not just games however in that figure, music, 3d, file storage etc

    I've found 2TB to be a really nice sweet spot; I can keep a load of games on SSD, and rotate any out that aren't being played. I'd *like* to have more SSD space, but at this point it's more convenience than necessity, and in these times, I ain't got convenience (nor necessity for that matter) types of money.

    8TB? Nice! That's nearly enough to install Forza Motorsport 7 and Call of Duty: Warzone!

    Just wait for UnrealEngine 5.0 games, that will take two of these each Like all assets with cinema level of details.

    Yeah game sizes seem to be getting a tad excessive for what you actually get in return in a lot of cases... I do blame a lot of the 'bloat' on poor optimisation and unnecessary/left in code etc.

    I installed gta5 (got it for free like many people and in all honesty kind of glad I didn't buy it) and it came in around 80GB with all the other junk it came with (rockstar launcher which basically just sends me back to epic launcher....) I'm dreading cyberpunk 2077, thats already saying 80GB on release so I'd hate to see what will happen with 'day 1 patches'....

    I'm like you in terms of needing to store 3D files etc and while I'm not worried about them 'now' I do see a gradual increase in file sizes for the same sort of file just on a newer version of the same software (not just 3D programs either)...

    I'm now coming into that 'upgrade window' and in all honestly I'm looking at using a hard drive based nas for longer term storage of 'work' stuff and then using multiple 1TB ssds in my pc purely due to not being a 'heavy' gamer but still having come to enjoy the boost an ssd gives in day to day use.

    Also I'm not sure I'd want to risk using a single 8TB drive either (hd or ssd), so in all honesty I'd need 2 drives for a mirrored set up because ssd's don't have the same signs as hard drives when they start to fail.

    Have you looked into Tiered Storage? I use it for all my games. Much more cost effective. Currently I have cobbled together a Windows Tiered Storage Space from 1x 120GB SSD and 2x 320GB HDD's. The result is 1 big drive instead of 3 small drives. With game files that are accessed frequently promoted to the SSD from the HDD's automatically. Its flexible and easy to add additional drives. Beyond the first load or patching. Loading and playing games behave exactly the same as if they were installed directly onto an SSD.

    Well... they've caught up to HDDs in terms of capacity. I imagine it's still going to be a few years before they come close to them on price.

    Problem with this disk is it is limited by its SATA 3 interface. Once the spinning drives perfect dual or multi-actuator technology, they too will be get close to the SATA limit for sustained transfers and probably be a lot cheaper per TB. SSDs will still be much better for random IO though.

    I wanted to write not yet, but really for SATA3 I cannot find many bigger HDD. Its weird as I was sure that the 20TB should be on shelves right now...

    I believe the largest HDD capacity available currently is Seagate's IronWolf 16TB drive.

    I think 20TB HDDs are still on their way from someone at some point in the near future, but who can be sure exactly when - especially with the current environment possibly delaying it.

    1TB HP EX920 m2 NVMe that kills this for under $120. I don't get this price for SATA crap. They now replaced it with ex950 but same story. If this was 2TB SATA $130, I get it.

    Are you suggesting someone who needs 8TB would be OK with a 1TB drive?
