  1. The mechanical drives will stay with us until the ssd prices are equal and also in the same size until it takes at least 5 years

  2. The graph is misleading. If they did zoom in a little to their beautiful yellow circle, you could see that even in the 2017 Gigabyte SSD price would still be double that of HDD. But good marketing.

  3. They can also base the graph on the least lucrative prices per hard disk volume.
    After all, the 1TB drive is significantly less lucrative at the price of a gigabyte than the 3TB drive.

    Popularity attributed in part to British statesman Benjamin Disraeli and American author Mark Twain is that there are three types of lies: ordinary lies, damned lies, and statistics.

  4. Good news, but less interesting to me is the price to GB of SATA SSD.
    I already have one 240GB volume and for me an upgrade will be a larger volume NVMe (500GB +) and affordable.
