A nice chap from Samsung disk division has confirmed that the company's SSDs are not something that will put the traditional hard drive out of a job.
Solid State Drives (SSDs) have their own market and they won’t jeopardize the traditional hard drives. Hard drives will be the capacity leaders and this won’t change in years to come.
SSDs will focus on notebooks and will try to go toward media center machines. It is fast, quiet but it is expensive and that is why consumers have not embraced it.
