Tech Report has been tracking prices for solid-state drives (SSDs) sold by OCZ, Intel (INTC), and others since their 2011 releases, and estimates the average drive has seen its price decline 46% since launch time, thanks in large part to plummeting NAND flash memory prices. That has fueled growing SSD use within PCs (I, II), and is one of the reasons (among others) why hard drive giants Seagate (STX) and Western Digital (WDC) have seen their valuations reach dirt-cheap levels.
