How much longer do you think that you can buy a 4TB SSD for the same price as a 4TB HDD, etc...?
Have we seen yuge price drops though? Back in 2011-2012 I loaded up on 3tb Seagate drives (most of which have died, and their replacements died) for about $80-90 each. That seems to still be the going price for new 3tb drives. Sure, there have been some great sales or you can save a few bucks shucking external drives, but not much movement from my vantage point...we finally started to see some major price drops for huge capacities.
When I first researched the 'white label' drive that's what I found out it was. Hadn't heard of such a thing until then. It's still rock solid. I haven't heard of a SSD version of this yet.One thing I do is always buy the used enterprise class drives. Even used they last so much longer than the consumer stuff.
