Long way to go before they are common.
4k will need broadcast tv and major internet infrastructure developments before
it is worth a look.
Fragile as hell? WTF are you talking about. What the hell do you think a Pen drive is (also called USB drive, Thumb Drive). It's essentially an SSD drive. Same technology. I've dropped mine on the floor and stepped on it accidentally and it still worked fine.
I'm not saying they're not the best option today. I said they are the future. They will only get smaller and hold more storage, and they don't have to have a device that spins them to read them. Trust me, they are the future.
