Do HDD Companies Have a Strong Future?
I believe SSD drives will grow in popularity - but the prices are still very high. ...and though I never thought I'd see a faster SSD than Intel's latest drives, Samsung's 250 Gig SSD is insanely fast (like 4x faster than Intel's in some cases!). I think we'll see higher end notebooks use SSD's, and more external storage via regular spinning disks. In my opinion SSD's have no place as a large storage solution - they're great for boot up performance though.
At some point Western Digital and Seagate will need to acquire and/or create some sort of SSD hybrid, and I imagine that day is coming soon. In the meantime, economic crisis aside, the demand for mass storage will continue to grow - and these guys need to invent a hybrid to help bring their margins and excitement up.
