I upgraded my 1TB 7200 RPM hard drive, to a 1TB solid state drive and my computer boots up in less than 10 seconds.

With my old hard drive, booting into Windows 10 took about 1 minute and 30 seconds.

Incredible!!!

Not for many more years to come.
Many of us bought 8tb hdd's for $135 (I think) last black friday; Can you imagine how much an 8tb SSD would cost? or how long it will be before they can make one that big fit on an M2 card? LoL

Yeah SSD's are great :) Ive got 3x 250GB in my desktop which is primarily used for gaming. For data storage, spinning discs are still the way to go for cost.

Do you think that HDD's will eventually be phased out and replaced with solid states?
Eventually, yes.

Long long ago, PC's had no hard drive. They ran directly off floppy disks.
Enter the HDD, and floppies went away. It did take quite a while, though. HDD's were quite expensive.
I remember spending near $200 on a 125 megabyte drive.
Currently, 125MB will hold 3 or 4 pics from my camera.

DVD's took over from CD's.

Solid state storage will eventually take over from spinning drives. Eventually.
It is becoming increasingly easy to buy a system, especially a laptop, that is SSD only.
