We interrupt our regularly scheduled news coverage to bring you a little heads up: Newegg is currently running a 24-hour sale on a wealth of different items, from routers and storage to motherboards and peripherals. A couple of solid-state drive deals in particular caught our eye.
For starters, Intel's freshly released 40GB X25-V solid-state drive is available for $114.99 shipped, down from last week's $130 launch price. $2.86 per gigabyte might seem a tad onerous for mechanical hard drives nowadays, but it's actually pretty tantalizing for a 2.5" SSD—especially since you can pair a couple in RAID 0 mode to double storage capacity and increase performance.
If 80GB seems too small for your needs, Newegg has sliced $100 off the price of OCZ's 120GB Vertex Series solid-state drive, bringing it down to $399 shipped. Folks wishing to try their luck with a mail-in rebate can get an extra $50 off, as well. Both the X25-V and the Vertex now ship with TRIM firmware, so both drives should perform well in a used state under Windows 7.
The 24-hour promotion ends tonight at midnight Pacific time, however, so don't mull these over too long.
