Deals of the week: Crucial’s MX200 500GB SSD and more

Happy Friday, gerbils. Pickings were slim for deals this week, but we've still found a couple bargains worthy of your hard-earned dollars today.

  • Newegg has Crucial's MX200 500GB SSD on "Shell Shocker" sale for $159.99. This fully-featured SSD is one of the best performers in its class, and Newegg's sale price brings the cost-per-gigabyte figure to 32 cents.


  • TigerDirect keeps digging up stock of Crucial's M500 960GB SSD for a good price. The retailer has this drive on sale for $299.99, and a $30 rebate offer could bring the price down to a mere $269.99. The M500 is getting a little up there in years, but for bulk solid-state storage, it's hard to beat for this price, especially if the rebate offer is honored.


  • Newegg also has Samsung's 850 EVO 250GB SSD for $79.99 with promo code AFSAMSSD928B. For those with small game libraries or less demanding storage needs, this SSD should serve well as a zippy system drive.

That's it for this week—if we missed anything in our search for bargains, be sure to share your findings with other TR readers in the comments.

    Amazon is matching Newegg’s MX200 deal.

    Edit: Bought one. One my machines is getting a little cramped.

      I checked and it was $10 more than at Newegg. And for me, I’d have to add sales tax, so Newegg won out, and I bought one, too. w00t!

      I bought one earlier this year (for $200) otherwise I definitely would have jumped on this deal. The Acronis cloning software it comes with worked perfectly too (upgrading from my old 128GB Crucial M4).

      I honestly can’t tell any difference speed wise even though the MX200 scores much better in benchmarks, but I was buying it for capacity not performance.

      My grandpa helped build those launch platforms.

        Cool stuff.

        Big engineering projects like that in North America are becoming or are a thing of the past. I don’t think I will ever see or be able to work on something that big or cool in my foreseeable career (in this country anyway)

    This always bugs me. You know, previous newegg deal newsletters like [url=<]this one[/url<] and [url=<]this one[/url<] are still valid through the weekend. You can include more than just the deals in the Friday morning newsletters. [No offense Jeff, they were doing this even before you started]

      None taken. We do consider those, but the standard that stuff has to meet to be a post-worthy deal is pretty high—historical trends and current pricing from other retailers all plays a part. I wasn’t too impressed by any of the stuff in those, hence the rather thin post this week đŸ™‚

        I would have to agree for this week. I didn’t see anything that really caught me eye either. Save for that [url=<]GTX 960 for $160 after MIR[/url<] I've been watching GTX 960 prices for a co-worker and that MSI card is usually the lowest price option.

    All of my VMs run on SSDs as do most of my servers. I’ve been buying up SSD storage for a while now and have been on the lookout for these kinds of posts.

    • Prestige Worldwide

    Those are some FIRST rate SSD deals.

      Yes and even the SECOND best are still good.
