Consumers more and more move from HDDs to SSDs, therefore HDD manufacturers more often release HDDs for the enterprise market where they serve as cheap mass storage.
This is wrong…SSD will never take off until it comes down in price close to high capacity HDD. This wrong mindset will not help them sell more but less in the long run. Until SSD becomes 8tb and close to 8tb HDD prices will SSD day come. I will still get 8tb HDD seagate until seagate/WD learns enterprise isn’t what will sell and get your products out faster.

Maybe? Most people I know don’t need the tb’s of storage I have.  They mostly just need enough to run the OS, some software, and to be able to save a few things. Those are the mases.

Those of us who need large amounts of storage are the minority.  And even still we use SSD’s as our main drive, and mechanical for storage.

Given how big HDD’s are getting, it would be nice if prices started to drop on some of the larger ones. 8tb’s still cost a mint :frowning:

Don’t know about you but the size of pictures and music people store would require large space drives not small SSD drives. For main that doesn’t matter but if you want to archive docs, pictures, musics, family movies will require larger capacity drives.
