I am trying to find out how much a 120gb SSD used to cost about five years ago. Mainly out of curiosity but also to determine the rate at which they are decreasing in price.



thanks in advance

Googling for "SSD price" leads to this link:
http://www.storagenewsletter.com/rubriques/market-reportsresearch/when-will-ssd-have-same-price-as-hdd-priceg2/

"The retail price for 256GB and 512GB SSDs has been dropping at a linear rate since 2010. In comparison, HDD pricing and new technology introductions have been stagnant. "

In 2010, a 256 SSD was ~$500. Today, under $200.

I got an OCZ Apex SSD (120GB) for ~$450, this was when SSD's were first coming into the market.

It now sits on my junk desk because of how bad it causes stuttering after it has been used for a bit. (No TRIM support)
