I always look for faster and better stuff, thatÂ´s natural.
I wasnÂ´t one of the first SSD-owners, I still decide is it worth buying -for me- or not. But if I thought the price is ok for me I buy it.
I have some 2TB-HDDs in use (not every day but often enough), if I copy some hundred GBs it felt very slowly with 80-150MB/s, so I say Yeah, GIVE ME MORE SPEED
But for other ppl who donÂ´t do that: The average read speed for SSD is about 500MB/s, even with budget-models. IÂ´m sure in the case you could get 300MB/s-SSDs for much cheaper, most ppl would buy it
If I look in the recommendation-threads, most ppl buy the budget-ones, not the Pros.
I believe faster controllers are in mass production, but that means itÂ´s cheap. The standard-SATA-controller is on cheapest mainboards.
I donÂ´t see these faster controllers on “normal” Mainboards, but this is important for new technologies.
I know ppl who would spend much money for CPU, much for videocard, much for monitor and drives, but they wonÂ´t buy an add-on-controller card
I bought 256GB-SSDs for about 140â‚¬ one year ago, and it wasnÂ´t the cheapest. If I look 2day at prices here, the cheapest one is about 130â‚¬
That means the prices for “slow” SSDs going down very slowly and for many ppl itÂ´s still to expensive.
I would hope youÂ´re right with your price-prediction but I still think it will not go the fast way.
