    Very impressive. I can't wait until SSD prices come down...


    Edit- Just did a little google on it- Endaget posted an article about it back in Jan here.

    I wonder what this means for the future of 3.5" HDDs. It wasn't too long ago that 64GB SSDs were the biggest available, now they've caught up to 99% of 3.5" HDDs (and even then the 1.5TB isn't that stable last I heard) How long till SSDs completely replace HDDs? And will we still see a 3.5" form factor when they do or will everything be 2.5" or possibly smaller?

    3.5" Disks are already at 2.0TB with 3.0TB to debut by end of year. We've had 3.5" 2.5TB SSD's for a while ($16,000 USD).

    Really? Do you have a link to a 3.5" 2.5TB SSD (or just >1TB)? I didn't know they existed. Excuse my ignorance, but I guess it doesn't matter since I don't plan on buying any SSDs till the price drops greatly.

    That is ridiculous, is there even a 1tb HDD in 2.5" yet?

    Can't believe SSDs have caught up to HDD so quickly...

    I don't have any links. But I saw the 2.5TB disk on Engadget about a year ago it was $16,000 if I remember correctly and was marketed towards the US Army where it was said it would continue to function where Hard Disks would not due to temperature fluctuations or Vibrations / Shocks. It was definitely in a 3.5" Form Factor.

    If that was a year ago with the Memory chips they had available at the time I would estimate the same product today would be at-least 3.5TB or more. Pricey though.

    Not until their price goes down :p

    I'm guessing that 3.5" ones should be cheaper (like it is right now) so I hope they sell those as well, but I hope they can make the 2.5" ones thinner! Imagine fitting 2 SSDs into a laptop :cool:

    I believe it, just the price point will be insane so no one will buy it.

    What's going to be funny is my kids are going to tease me when they become adults at how small and insignificant our current hard drives are compared with what they will have in the future. lol
