Perfect. Western Digital's Velociraptor and a 250GB SSD going half?

This is the tech that I have been waiting on my self, Cant Justify the High Price of SSD for what I would get per GB, SSHD will turn best of both worlds as the drivers improve, Uses the SSD part for boot up and frequently used apps or games, With super storage Capability with faster than normal big file transfers,
The issue at hand would be the size of the SSHD of course when it comes to desk tops NP, Lab tops would end up best suited for shrunk down SSD's and over all wight of said unit, Just how much Tera Bits you want to pay for to be installed,

But hay roller skates are not for everybody ether,

I need the huge storage space they offer more than speed and I need it cheep so...

You can have my harddrives when they pry it from my cold dead hands.

Quote article, "You've probably never come across a bumper sticker that reads, "You can have my hard disk drive when you pry it from my cold, dead hands,"...lol, good one...where can I get one, Paul. Print it up and send it with our next hard copy issue ;-)

I smell a conspiracy to keep the cost of hard drives from dropping precipitously like they did before the flood in Thailand. Now that hard drives are getting back to the $60 for 1TB range again, the manufacturers are ganging up with their "associations". Won't work this time tho as SSD are poised for great things.

Once you go to an SSD boot drive for Windows, you can never go back (Linux users don't need SSDs as badly).

agreed. trade group = business talk for collusion.

I agree. I also suspect this to be the beginning of a HDD manufacturer cabal and I'm leery of something like that.

Beginning? Do you recall the price of a 1TB hard drive after the floods? I stopped drinking the economics kool-aid after that one.

My experience has been this, hard drives fail, ssd drives dont. Had two hard drives fail on one laptop, and everyone around me has the horrible blue screen or other failure stories. Running raid ssd's on an m17x and raid ssds on an m18x no problems, 3 1/2 years going on the m17x. Worth the money for reliability and speed in like a bike vs a ferrarri
