I got this SSD last year when they first came out and I am still using it in my system now. This SSD was a great upgrade over my old Raid 0 setup of two OCZ Vertex 2 120GB Sata II SSDs and ironically the Samsung SSD performs a little better than my previous set up overall. While price per performance isn't as good as it could be it is a very good SSD and should last me for sometime, and it is very efficient too.

Theoretically what could happen in future PCs is that most copper-based data-transferring technologies could (and is likely to happen eventually) be replaced with fibre-optic (or possibly a descended fibre-optic based) data-transferring technologies instead so its possible cables will still exist, but they will be fibre-optic cables instead. The idea I'm getting at here that even in the future you will still be paying a premium for a PCI-E based SSD.
