My System Specs

Default

Meh, I will never go back to platter drives for a main drive... SSD's have spoiled me. 512GB SSD's are already below $400 and below $350 on sale (they will be below $300 shortly), so a 1TB Velociraptor has no appeal for me considering the performance is night and day. I only consider platters for secondary storage when I need at least a few terabytes. The big issue going forward for me will be how the SSD manufacturers solve the declining performance issues as capacity increases.
