All new technologies are always expensive initially

It was the same during the transition from CD to DVD, or from dialup to ADSL/Cable, or CRT to LCD monitors. Or when it comes to hard disks: pATA to sATA.

The price of SSDs will come down. Mechanical hard drives will continue to dwindle in numbers until a new generation of children will grow up and almost not seeing one in their daily lives.

Seagate? It's drives used to be excellent (made in Singapore), the gold standard. Then manufacturing moved to China, and there's been some problems. Seagate changed its logo several times since then.
