Truly amazing how far SSD prices have come down....standard HD's should be going the way of the DODO soon.....

In laptops - yes, hard drives will soon be gone. For desktops, not quite yet, at least for storage drives. It will be a few more years until 4TB SSD drives are affordable (I just bought a few 4TB hard drives for archive storage). By then, will people be demanding 20TB storage drives? Maybe, but hard drives will become more of a server-type product...

I suspect we may see more hybrid drives. 256GB SSD + 2TB hard drive in a laptop, so you can be fast and still have plenty of room for as many photos and videos as you want to store.

Ordered same item for $94.99 after $15 off $100 TD email coupon. No Tax for most, unlike AMZ

SSD are not reliable, at least in my experience, I have far many more failures on SSDs than standard drives. To the point, I just do not trust them.

This is TLC flash drive, life span is questionable.

Thank you for your opinion, but your experience does not represent a valid sample size. My experience has been the opposite. I've had 4 different SSD's in the last 3 years, and I've never had a non-recoverable failure.  I've had about 2 or 3 of my last 10 HDD's fail to the point that I had to have them replaced.

With my current Samsung SSD, it's been running for ~10 months with nothing more than a hiccup. On a few occasions it failed to boot, but that was more of a motherboard/OS issue than a drive failure. Each time, it occurred after downloading Windows patches. Note that my experience is not a valid sample size either.

  Maybe true, but the vast majority of users will probably replace this drive long before the TLC memory is used up.
