on the contrary... I dont know if this is global but samsung are doing a lot of cash back deals with their products. I can buy a 256GB 830 SSD for around £140-150. throw in £20 cash back and its almost as cheap as how 128GB SSDs used to cost at the start of this year.
put in an SSD and put the hard drive in a small USB 2.0/3.0 external Chassis and dump your music or videos on it. Its exactly the same thing i have done except i went for a Sandisk Extreme 240GB SSD for my laptop and ive only used about 80GB in total and the rest is kept on a external drive.
