Great SSD Deals

Postposted on Wed Jan 08, 2014 8:40 am

I figured I'd title this thread so it's a bit universal. 1) it allows all SSD deals to be consolidated into one thread, and 2) it gives gerbils the opportunity to track SSD pricing.

Newegg has the Kingston V300 on sale. The 120GB version is $70 with promo code EMCYTZT5389 (ends 1/9/2014). That's the best cost/GB on a 120GB SSD I've seen since that drive was on sale from ~2-4am on Black Friday for $60. If you need more space, the 240GB version is $130.
Kingston has been very agressive with pricing on their V300 lately, let's hope they can put the pressure on other manufacturers to drive prices down further. SSD prices have stagnated since OCZ gave up.

Update: Newegg has raised the price on the 120GB model already to $113. However, Amazon has the same model for $69.99 and Prime shipping. Jackpot!

edit: Newegg with some really strange behavior: They dropped the price to $89.99 now on the 120GB model and it's still sold out. Amazon deal still going strong.

This one is really good if you count the MIR - $100 for a 240GB Seagate SSD 600. http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications ... CatId=5300

Newegg has the 240GB Mushkin Enhanced Chronos for $105. No promo codes required, expires midnight tonight.

Review here. Sounds like it's async NAND so it will suffer under incompressible sequential reads. Still much snappier than a mechanical hdd though.

Howbout this one:
http://slickdeals.net/permadeal/117060/newegg---480gb-crucial-m500-2.5-internal-ssd

480gb for under $200, around 41 cents a gig.

Solid product, I have the 960gb model and it runs like a champ, instant on PC basically under Win8.

Impressive! Already expired, alas. Prices are dropping; people complain they aren't, but while the 40%-per-year reduction may no longer hold (at least until another process advance) they really do inch lower. The "special deals" of a few months ago are the ordinary pricing of today.

I'm going to be doing an HDectomy of a family member's computer this summer, and it's looking increasingly like I'm going to be able to do it with an SSD of the same size or larger at a sane price.
