I'm sorry but I'm getting more and more unimpressed with all these new SSDs these days, no one (apart from Samsung) seems to be pushing the limits of SSD capacity, how many good performing M.2 or 2.5" SSD that are 1.5TB or larger are out there? not many other than the Samsung 2 and 4TB drives... We've had 1TB SSDs for over 3 years now, time to crack 2TB+ drives soon maybe? I keep hearing about all these high density dies that are being made but nothing seems to ever come of them...

I'm ready to move entirely to flash but apparently no-one other than Samsung wants to take my money... I have 3x 3TB Mechanical drives that I'd love to change to equivalent or bigger sized SSDs. They don't need to be super fast as they are in a RAID but I'm not prepared to pay $2000NZD per drive, give me $500-650NZD 3-4TB drives and I'll snap them up.

TL;DR, no new high capacity consumer SSDs have hit the market from many people. Gimmie mah damn 3-4TB SSDs already!

I just went to Newegg. Am I imagining things, or are these crazy cheap?

512GB $190
256GB $105
128GB $70

Isn't that about 40% lower than Samsung 950 Pro prices?

Oh, wait, it doesn't look like the 600p drives are really in the same performance category as the Samsung 950 Pro or Intel 750 series. Wonder how good they will perform in terms of performance per $.
