While we are on the topic of SSDs, the demand for SSDs has increased over the past couple of months. SSDs have become cheaper and due to the high demand, the price drops are going to decrease in the upcoming weeks. Talking about demand, the demand for SSDs is now so high that Toshiba is setting up another plant in order to keep supplying.
SSDs used to be pretty expensive but now that the prices are down we can recommend then to mainstream users.
