We've singled out a trio of storage deals for you all this week, starting with a pretty substantially discounted Crucial m4 256GB solid-state drive. Normally priced at $299.99, the drive is currently on sale for $199.99 with free shipping. Considering the has 6Gbps SATA connectivity and a three-year warranty, that's surprisingly cheap.
If you're looking for something even cheaper and don't mind a smaller capacity, then OCZ's 60GB Vertex 3 is available for $79.99 shipped, or $64.99 after a mail-in rebate. That drive also features 6Gbps SATA, and it has slightly higher rated speeds than the Crucial drive: 535MB/s for reads and 280MB/s for writes, compared to a respective 500MB/s and 260MB/s. Its warranty coverage is also three years.
Finally, on the mechanical front, Seagate's 2TB Barracuda Green can be nabbed for $109.99 shipped right now if you enter the promo code "EMCNENF23" on the checkout page. That drive's a little slow for storing your operating system, but it's perfect as a mass-storage solution—and it's cheaper than the other "Green" 2TB drives we see listed.
A few games are on sale today, as well. Amazon offers Deus Ex: Human Revolution for $6.99 and Dungeon Siege 3 for $4.99, both in digitally downloadable form. Meanwhile, on Steam, the excellent Batman: Arkham City is on sale for $14.99.
Our Canadian friends can partake in NCIX's Marvellous May Sale Event. Deals there include a 128GB OCZ Vertex 4 solid-state drive selling for $139.99 CAD (don't forget to check out our review), and a 240GB OCZ Agility 3 SSD listed for $199.99 CAD after a $20 mail-in rebate.
