In recent months, the price of SSD technology has been falling, which has caused more widespread adoption, especially in laptops.
This has created an imbalance and resulted in shortages. Laptop manufacturers are struggling to find parts for their wares, and prices have begun to increase.
This is also true of NAND flash memory, which is integral to SSDs, and also used in Smartphones.
Granted, these shifts are temporary. Manufacturers are working to ramp up their production capabilities, but it will take a year or slightly longer for those moves to start bearing fruit.
The point is that if you’re interested in upgrading your equipment, either do it now, or wait a year or more until prices start falling again. Otherwise, you’ll wind up paying more than you need to.
There are some compelling advantages to SSD technology, and chief among them is speed. If you’re trying to milk as much speed out of your infrastructure as you possibly can, they’re an attractive option to consider, but that’s only true insofar as you can pick the tech up while it’s cheap.
