Intel 520 series -- decent sale at BestBuy B&M

Postposted on Thu Nov 01, 2012 9:54 pm

For anyone who wants to pay a little more for the Intel name, the Intel 520 series are currently on sale at BestBuy. The BestBuy website shows $115/120GB and $160/240GB for a whitebox drive with a 3-year warranty, but the units in my local store are actually retail box with the desktop conversion kit and the 5-year warranty. Including tax it still comes out a bit better than the Newegg price for the same drive kits.

I snagged a 120GB model for the HTPC. Didn't really need it, but I want to experiment with Windows 8 without blowing away the existing Win7-64 setup, so why not...

That is indeed a pretty decent sale. Wonder if I can get a 240GB at my local BB for $160. hmmm

edit: I certainly can. Double hmmm

Probably this page?

(Sorry about the ugly link, the URL tag apparently doesn't like the query string)

Well, only one of them is what the OP was referring to... I only see the 120GB for $115, 240GB. The 180GB is $160, though.

I was looking specifically for the 240GB. If there was a BB that was not out of the way for me I'd stop in but there isn't...oh well!

My mistake, it is the 180GB. Still a good price on the 120GB though.
