How can this article declare SSD speed at HDD prices when there are no prices listed? That kind of defeated the whole reason I opened this article to read more.

What prices would those be? The inflated flood prices?

Let me know when I can get a reliable high speed 500+ GB SSD for under $100. Then I'll be impressed.

You need to lower your expecatations.  A 500 GB HDD costed around $40 pre-flood. You expect to get 4x the speed of HDDs for around 2x the price? Come on.

For my needs I don't need a high speed SSD. I need space.

The article's headling is "OCZ Petrol SSD: NAND Flash Performance at HDD Prices?"

Anandtech is now quoting $90 for a 64 GB SSD. While I know that's not the price/size sweet spot for SSDs, $1.40/GB is NOT hard drive pricing. That's not even close!

I will embrace SSDs when the prices are truly comparable to HDD prices and storage. I know that will take a breathrough, so I'm going to be patient.

If you need space, don't look at SSDs. If you don't need SSDs, don't comment about waiting for unrealistic prices before buying. We get it... EVERYBODY wants lower-priced SSDs...
