    Holy Smoke batman, these things are screaming fast!!!! 3,500mb read speeds, 2,500mb write speeds! and the best part, is they are as cheap, or cheaper than the predecessors. Man, am i glad i waited to build my flagship machines. in three years since i bought an i5 quad core, sata SSD's were the state of the art @500mb read write speeds, and cost 3x what they do currently.

    There has been a slowing in intels processor production/release, and a huge leap in storage. im hoping this means positive things for Hi fidelity streaming, and an aim towards quality, now that storage speed isnt the bottleneck anymore, and capacity prices are creeping down for these amazing ssd's.

    The remaining issues facing storage center around size of storage, and long term reliability. Believe it or not, tape still reigns supreme:).

    thats a good point. amazingly, if stored properly theres at least a 50yr shelf life for tape. its an art to baking it and getting it going again, but at least its there! apparently Samsung upped the warranty to 5 years, from 3, so i guess their feeling more confident in the drives longevity. dvds/cd's have an extremely longs shelf life too, and again, at least its physically there, and the code can be deciphered. in addition to the 3 clouds, and multiple physical drives, ill be backing up to high capacity blue ray as well, in the interest if having a physical copy. RAID configuration is good practice i believe with SSD's especially.

    You have tape, I’ll take SSD:)

    Oh boy... I’m excited to hear this! The faster SSD get, the happier we all will be. But, I do worry about reliably all the time. Always good to have backups of backups.
