Default Samsung: Solid-state, mechanical storage will reach price parity

Will solid-state drives ever become as cheap as mechanical hard drives or will hard drives always have a pricing advantage? Samsung, the world's biggest flash memory maker, believes the former—although CNet News says the company didn't reveal a precise time frame for the event. Samsung merely expects the two mediums to reach price parity "within the next few years."

That's not such an outlandish prediction considering how flash memory prices have declined in recent years, of course. In September 2007, for example, we reviewed a 128GB Super Talent SSD that cost a staggering $4,600. Today, the same company offers a 128GB SSD with a more compact form factor and better performance ratings for just $265.
