I don't know if this is a temporary shortage as we've seen in the past, or if it's as long lasting as the author thinks, but if you need more storage for your computer, now is the time to get it.

The 850 Pro 4 TB has been delayed as a result of the NAND shortage. And companies are trying to respond by shifting expansion money from RAM to NAND, forcing us to confront a RAM shortage as well.

Another prediction of incoming price increases for SSDs.

Bad news: the SSD price increases will continue through this year.
Good news: SSD prices will resume decreasing next year.

We should see the NAND prices coming down soon thanks to Toshiba's 3D BiCS NAND.

Here's hoping that this new NAND factory will put an end to the SSD shortage.
