They should have broken the SSDs into different categories.

  1. Performance SSDs
  2. Budget SSDs

while ssd prices are coming down… not to be cannibalized by the flash memory market,
the DDR (ram) companies are still raking in big profits even with their quarterly target miss (micron)…

DDR companies seem to write their own pricing laws… thou shalt pay high prices becasue that’s what we charge…
leading to slower innovation for the devices you buy and higher prices too! the cpu companies have had a hand in that as well…

I have seen a fairly substantial drop in DDR3/DDR4 prices over the past couple of weeks. The price for 16gb of DDR3 was stuck around $120-$150USD for a long time. Now the same can be bought for around $90-$100USD. DDR3 8gb kits can be bought for under $50USD now even at retail stores like Microcenter.

Not sure why the recent price drop but I hope it is the beginning of a trend.
