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

Palladium

Firstly, virtually all SSD failures aren't due write endurance limits, and overall they are a magnitude more reliable than HDDs on a normalized timeframe. Google proved that in their 2016 paper.

Secondly, people are still beating the endurance boogeyman for consumer drives intended, you know, for consumers with inane arguments like "how would I trust my $10000+ intensive I/O critical operation on a <$200 consumer SSD with relative low write endurance?".

Thirdly, I'm not interested in any Samsung consumer SSDs, QLC or not, because they are always overpriced to their competitors.
