Unreal. I use an SSD in one two of my machines and the speed difference is fantastic to say the least. But I bet the price will be though the roof. I would be a little nervous spending that much on one drive since even SSD’s can fail. I would maybe rather have four 4TB SSD drives. If by a very remote chance of a failure, I would still have 12 TB instead of none.
Still it’s very cool that they can make those now. It should make the price of SSD’s come down, I would hope.
Man, in a couple years from this we same one here is gonna look back on
a 16TB Drive and laugh at how we were first blown away with such petty
drive capacity, lol.
I remember when i got my first 80GB hard drive, man i was excited and
thought i could store the world on it… see, and that’s a laughing stack
now. Just as a 16TB drive will be a laughing stack in a few years time, amazing, lol.
