RedShark News's Leo Waldock revisits his predictions for the state of Solid State Drives in 2016.

He writes, "It has been 12 months ago I last wrote about the state of the SSD market and I have to confess I was overly-optimistic about the progress I thought we would see in 2016. A year ago, you could buy a 1TB Crucial MX200 for £273 and today you can buy a 1TB Crucial MX300 for £240. Admittedly, the British currency has crashed by 18 percent over the past couple of months, but my hopes of a 2TB SSD for £300 this year are way off the mark. If you want a 2TB Crucial MX300, it will cost you £500, so it is possible to buy a drive with that capacity, but you will pay a high price for the privilege."
