That in just 36 years, the average price per Gigabyte of Hard drive storage has fallen from over $400,000 to ₵0.19. Is this a good outcome?

  • Yes, it probably is

    The fact that the average price per gigabyte of hard drive storage has fallen from over four hundred dollars to less than fifty cents is a sign that technology and storage options are widely available and accessible to all. This is a good outcome for the rapidly changing technological world.

  • Yes, it is.

    Computers and storage space have continued to drop in price. While not necessarilly great for computer manufacturers, it does drive up innovation. It also great for everyone else as it allows them to buy the computer hardwear and storage space that they need so they can create and store information.

  • Yes it is.

    Yes, it is. I believe this is actually a good outcome. This is so because it was so expensive initially hence making it affordable to only a particular class of people. The average of price of Hard drive per Gigabyte has now fallen to about ₵0.19 and we should all be happy about it.

  • No, I don`t think so.

    It's weird that we put the $ before and the ¢ after. I mean, they're already different symbols why did we need to also do another different thing? There's not a lot left to improve. To really get a big performance gain over the current technology, you need to seriously improve the rotation speed and/or use a different controller like SCSI. At that point you're getting to or above SSD costs which are going to smoke any physical media.
