http://m.tomshardware.co.uk/Intel-Micron-128Gb-NAND-IMFT,news-37226.html I saw this in today's tech news, and a feeling I've had in the last few months became a little more concrete. What with spinning platter HDs struggling for supply and at increased cost for the next 6 months or more, it seems like a 'perfect storm' is brewing, as larger capacity and ever cheaper SSDs are going to hit the shelves in the same period, while also maintaining the advantages of speed, silence and low power usage. As it is fast nearing the end of the year and we naturally start to think of the new year ahead, I thought it was an appropriate time to post a thread to poll people's thoughts of where the next year will take us! I think that the next 12 months is going to see the death of traditional hard drives, at least in the home user market. What do you think? Is the degradation over time of an SSD enough of a drawback to give HDs a lifeline in the home market, or will they survive only in high storage servers? Is even that market threatened? I'm interested to hear people's views!
