    Finally more TLC love. And because more OEMs will have access to TLC capable solution, this could drive the prices down even further. Reply

    Have wonder how much more.

    Just bought a Crucial MX100 256GB for $ .35/GB, shipped.

    1TB for $250-300ish should be a pretty good target, IMO. Reply

    Pretty close @ $.035/GB. I'm thinking we aren't that far off from a dime a GB. Density with HDD continues to increase exponentially a decade ago, and today @ a nickel a GB, I don't think we're any more than five years from the $100/150 TB blades. Helluva lot less 'work' to produce NAND modules as the process becomes more commonplace than assembling HDDs, their mass, moving precision parts ....essentially a 5400, 7200 or10,000rpm 'deco cord player! Pretty amazing to me they've been as durable as most of mine have. NAMD is a different story. Manufacturing will be cheaper. Densities will continue to grow. Prices will drop as speeds increase and power, efficiency improvements along the way will continue to save energy, allowing for higher cap storage modules on phones, tablets and laptops. Pretty cool time to be using computers. HiDPI displays. Speeds of storage increasing ten fold overnight seemingly (& literally for those switching from HDD to SSD!), efficient and high power quad core CPUs and incredible iGPU innovation speed and options of I/O with USB 3/3.1 and Thunderbolt, airplay and chromecast, LTE speeds and gigabit Ethernet ISP options residentially (I'm in Alaska with Gigabit speeds from my local ISP, and it ain't Google! Lol). Amazing speeds we're moving. Literally. Both in hard and software. The options for editing photos, home video manipulation, audio recording or reading a magazine, book ...watching a flick or listening to your favorite station on the other side of the world. Flying with an iPad as your kneeboard or using a phone to capture three episodes of Nat Geo shots on four different continents! Where did time go? I'm floored by the speed of my new 15" MBP. It hauls ass. Downloading a Microsoft Office update is literally a ten second task. Batteries on laptops last all day, as do they on tablets. Pretty cool. Storage isn't falling behind. Prices will continue to come down with more manufacturers and higher densities are already available this year (TB on my MBP of PCIe SSD) is better than last years (my 2012 768). Speeds are almost twice as quick too! Reply

    ". Intel did a very detailed presentation on LDPC at FMS a dew years ago, although I must warn you that it is also very technical with lots of math involved. "

    I think you meant: "FMS a few years ago"

    You are correct. Thanks for the heads up :) Reply

    The article incorrectly links to the ADATA SP920 review, which uses a Marvell controller. Reply

    I m looking forward to seeing a group of TLC SSDs with SM controller at $.25/GB. Reply
