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

Maybe, maybe not.

First of all, pretty near all new systems are going to ship with a 250-500GB SSD, first in laptops and then soon after desktop systems too, because people just won't put up with sub-par performance once they've got a taste for the speed of an SSD.

Spinning rust will survive for a little while for media storage, and possibly ultra-high bandwidth applications.

But ultimately, I foresee some sort of ultra-high density write-once media being developed for long term archival storage.
