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


Re: Ah, but

For some use cases yes. But SSD greatly drops latancy, higher IOPS,higher density, lower power usage and better reliability. In addition potentially allows dedup, compression and encryption in situations where spinning disk doesn't.

So cost per GB can be very misleading and not always the same as VFM.
