Grab a Crucial 256GB SSD for $79, 512GB for $159

Amazon is having something called "Prime Day" that appears to be really commercialistic and gross, according to everyone on Twitter. But in the midst of this bizarre bazaar shines the light of a pretty nifty deal on SSDs. You can get a Crucial MX100 256GB for $79.99, which is 20 bucks off the regular price. If you'd like more capacity, the 512GB version is going for $159.99. Those folks with Amazon get free two-day shipping, as well.

The MX100 performed reasonably well in our review of the drive, although the 256GB version compromises on performance some compared to the 512GB model.

The 512GB model was an Editor's Choice winner last June.

This deal is a pretty good one, but it's not totally unique. You can snag a 512GB drive from Mushkin for $169.99 at Newegg or the 256GB model for $89.99.
