Look, even at 20 cents a gb, a 1tb ssd drive would be $200.. while media drives are barely $50. These guys know they are gaming the system (price fixing) to keep profits high for as long as possible because new competitors are going to enter the market soon including HDD makers.
The greed is why you STILL really don't see many PCs with SSD drives.. I would love to replace my 1tb hdd with an SSD (in my next PC build), but I'm not going to be willing to pay over bout $150, when the time comes while these ssd prices are a LOOONG ways from that.
At least blu ray will soon give up the ghost (and lower prices).. since 25/50gb optical media is fast becoming obsolete with online storage and Drive(hdd/ssd/flash) technologies becoming so cheap.
