Looking for 3.5" Solid State Hard drives in large capacities. Do they make such a thing?

Here is a spam answer: :lol:

Of course, they do... and their SSDs are ridiculously, prohibitively expensive.

The SSDs feature such a low throughput interface that you would not be able to destroy them by overwriting for their lifetime.

Dang, bigger than I was thinking.

Looking for a 2-3TB unit. The case I'm using has 3.5" bays and caddies. I've been having trouble trying to find them from The Egg or the Bay. For years I just put a big HDD in for my home dir. My 500GB root drive is only using about 40GB. I've got a couple of 160GB drives still new in the box, I'm half tempted to just put one of those in as the root drive.

The original question though, all are 2-3TB SSDs the 2.5" form factor?

Just get a mounting bracket for your SSDs. Each bracket holds 2 2.5" drives in the place of a single 3.5" bay.
