Growth For PC Solid State Drives (SSD) In 2011 / 2012

We have some good news for consumers looking to move towards SSD drives but are holding off at the moment due to high costs, as one article we’ve read explains how SSD drives may become more mainstream in standard PCs throughout 2011 and into 2012.

As reported from Reuters, we could see a shift in manufacturers opting to use SSD drive storage as opposed to hard drive storage, due to consumers eventually coming to the idea that SSD tech could be more beneficial to them.

At the moment, SSD drives are the premium option for new computer buyers, but this could all change once price cuts are enforced over the course of next year. Of course, SSD drives are widely used by clued up consumers, but at the moment, it seems as if Apple are the only big name company to support the use of SSD drives more so than they would a HDD.

According to Reuters, Samsung, Intel and Toshiba have all invested billions of dollars to ensure that production on SSD drives remain healthy and stock numbers are kept high to meet increased demand from consumers.

What are your thoughts on the current state of SSD drive technology? Do you prefer it over using an HDD? If so, is it only due to the fast boot-up times, or do you have other reasons? Take a look at the full article over at Reuters and let us know your thoughts on this.
