The age of hard drives is over as Samsung cranks out consumer QLC SSDs

Craig 2

" The future is not bright for desktop and notebook disk drives."

That has been true since SSD became "consumerised" but still, here we are buying hundreds of millions of traditional HDs each year. In the field of computing that's not bad for a 60's technology!

SSD will exceed HD shipment volumes soon but a lot longer to match price / storage. The new paradigm will be (if not already) SSD for boot / apps / working data and HD for storage / archive.
