Intel and Crucial SSD's in that size range are typically closer to $250. I have seen an occasional sale on other brand SSD's that will dip below $200 after rebate, but if you check the ratings on these products they are usually pretty poor. An example- I go to newegg.com and look at the 120GB range. Picking a name brand even, such as the OCZ that newegg says is "voted best of the best". Newegg has 322 reviews, and 31% of the reviews are for 1 or 2 eggs only. A full 1/3 of the buyers didn't like the product. Corsair and G.Skill are marginally better. You have to get to the Crucial or Intel products starting at $245 before the user ratings start to look much better.120GB high performance SSD's are in the 150-200$ range
Says who? Tech prices generally come down over time, but that can be counteracted when demand is increasing much faster than production levels
Even if you do have 100s of GB of movies and music, a secondard traditional HDD handles them quite well, so it probably doesn't make a whole lot of sense to throw $1.50/GB at a problem with a $0.10/GB solution
SSDs haven't decreased in price? Maybe not the item price, but the price-capacity has.
