Are conventional hard drives nearing their limits?...
Feb 23, 2011

Are conventional hard drives nearing their limits? It seems that the old axiom of drives being double the storage for the same price every new yaer is beginning to fade away.

I bought a 1tb external for $105 2.5 years ago & expected that I would find 4tb drives in this range today, but as it turns out, no 4tb's are available & 2tb drives are barely under $100.

Is it due to technology limits, the r&d capitol all being directed towards solid state or simply lack of demand for larger drives?

There is simply too much beauty in the world to photograph it all, but I'm trying.
