Conversation Not so solid state of affairs

I got the EVO for $50. In a manner of speaking. $150 bundle for the EVO and a 3TB HDD. I was looking for a 3TB drive with a 3+ year warranty for less than $100. I found one.

I will say this - my mileage varied. The hype is overblown. Yes, the OS is more responsive and smooth (who GAF if the machine boots faster?)
But, it ain't miracle fast.

250GB is marginally useful to me. I do not stream from a server. I prefer to keep copies of library media at the workstation. Why power on two machines to watch one video? My FLAC library is ~700GB and growing.

So, I understand. I am looking forward to breaking the $200/TB price point in SSDs.
