Do you really doubt SSD's will outperform spinning rust $/Tb? SSD prices are divided by 2 roughly every 2 years ... I think that SSD's will start being cheaper than consumer HDD's as early as 2016. Besides, SSD's will become monsters, capacity wise, the sky's almost the only limit. Look at the capacity of the smallest (in cm) usb flash drives ... now, imagine a 2.5" enclosure full of those chips ... then you could also dream of a 3.5" enclosure with those chips ... no competition.
