yu119995 estimates that he will be spending the same amount on SSD's now; thinks this could bring SSD's to the forefront of personal storage.

I thought it was Thailand that flooded and is still flooded. Did Taiwan flood too? Just wondering...I spent a week in Thailand last month before the flooding got really bad in Bangkok and I haven't heard anything about flooding in Taiwan.

No you are correct it was Thailand only, but Taiwan is also a main staging area for other plants that are trying to keep up with production when Thailand went offline.  This just sucks all around.  Hard drive prices are crazy right now.

I think the author mixed up Taiwan with Thailand. Or is it Thailand with Taiwan :P

Well, at least this makes SSDs look more attractive. Maybe SSD prices will start coming down then, and demand for them will rise, and HD manufacturers will be in even bigger trouble.
