I bought one Mon. at Tiger Direct for $197.32 + free shipping after 12.3% CB.
There's no tax for you West-coasters.
Is this the one you are talking about?
I assume it's G2 since the description stated it supports TRIM.
This should be everyone's motto about everything in life.
thats why i've only gone away on a vacation 3 times in 30 years.
i go on vacation every summer winter spring fall hehe been to every country in Europe every state in USA (hawaii few times) most the Canada provinces passed up some ops to go to Africa ;/
Got this drive yesterday for 190 on the forums new in box thought it was awesome deal since cheapest on ebay was 220 heh, i think it will hold in price for a while considering it was 600 when it was released and hear the newer line wont even last very long with 32nm (thats what i took from it) no idea tho =P
Hopefully Intel will honor the warranty if something goes wrong.
here is quote from another guy that rmad his "when the first firmware released that bricked everyone's drives, mine also died and i called them for a replacement. they did not ask for receipt or proof of purchase"
i really doubt it will die as i have really low case temps and never have anything die but regular hd's but if it does i can always buy another and use the new ones receipt worst case (or ask the guy for a copy of receipt but i reallllly doubt it)
i wouldnt pay 10% more for anything (thats why i buy used too) if you wanta pay 10% more go to a local store
