SSD’s have been all the rage this year. First popping up in UMPC’s and quietly splashing on to the data storage scene. Despite high prices the demand has kept steadily growing. Die hard traditionalists have dug in and remained loyal to hard drives but that may soon change in the new year. Capacities have grown larger and affordable. Enterprise level storage is still on the horizon. Making the switch to SSD technology would have vast financial repercussions for many companies. Perhaps the when the economy gets back on track you will notice corporations making the switch.
Performance wise SSD is the hands down winner. Some may argue the price versus performance for the home user but consumers have proven they are willing to pay for convenience, especially when it comes to technology. Tie that together with a hard drive crash in the new year and you will have droves of home users abandoning their Seagate’s and Western Digitals. Bow to the new technology king of data storage. Solid State Drives.
