Another outdated posting from Tom's. More and more instances of outdated stuff at Tom's over the last few months.
Seagate and WD have to get their act together in the SSD business and build it to a good share over the next few years. Already we are seeing 960 GB Crucial SSDs in the market. Although that is priced at 6-7 times a conventional HDD, that multiple will fall surely. Will the SSD industry move to 2TB in say 2014-15 and more importantly, will 500GB-1TB price multiples shrink to 1-3x of hard disks. That could be a very bad scenario for Seagate/WD.

Whenever I see articles on SSD's I scroll to the bottom for an indication of the price/size ratio as all the other factors are usually relatively static
