    They gotta change stuff up somehow and offer differing things...SSDs have pretty much maxed out their current speed capacity due to other components not having higher capability. Even the new SATA3 (6.0GBPS) is pushed to the limit by the current Vertex 3, and IIRC Thunderbolt can theoretically run 10GBPS, but this will obviously be limited to a much lower speed.

    Quality wise, SSDs are golden. Even the older ones are great. Relative to the time people keep electronic devices, an improvement in longevity is almost silly, given most people will throw their SSD away due to being obsolete before they break.

    The 34nm technology is great...isn't Crucial past 100 terabytes of data transfer testing on their C300's flash?

    So where to from here? I guess you are left with cost, size, and unique features until the rest of the market catches up..but that's just my 2 cents.
