Do the makers of the SSD's have the technology to make 1 TB SSD's and just don't to keep the prices high and their profits up? I don't have anything against profits, i'm just wondering when these are going to be big enough and cheap enough to do away with the non-ssd or disk drives (not sure of the exact name)...

A little off topic, but i love my SSD and wanna know when i can buy more mega cheap!?!?!?!?

they make them


The costs are coming down on SSD's. But we only recently saw the prices drop below a dollar a gig. Multiplying that by 1000 gets really expensive, adding on top of that there is such a small demand for them due to the price that the costs are much more than $1 per GB right now.

To give you an idea on how much the prices have changed already. This drive is three times as fast as the first SSD we tested, has twice the capacity, and costs $120 less.
