For a low capacity SSD, this is probably about as good of a price as anyone is ever going to get. Usually it's the ~120GB SSD's that have the highest $/GB ratio. This one is only 0.33$/GB though.

For comparison.


On a related note, Newegg seems to be selling some of the higher capacity variants at very good price/capacity ratios as well. Something I noted while looking at SSD's on PCPartspicker in general.

Sitting on a 960 Crucial myself... so I never really feel the need to bite on any of these.

Was OOS at amazon when I tried to order just now.
Ordered from BBY to round out this little G3258/Z97 microcenter combo I threw together on a whim. Having the OS on a platter drive has reminded me how much I hate that setup.

Thanks OP!

I've got a 240GB Optima as the sole drive in my HTPC. Been over a year now and zero issues. Great budget drive!

I'm sure that's just based on their standard inventory replenishment rates. Having sold a bunch of these after pricematching I'm sure amazon will bump their next order and get your ssd out asap.

I thought about it, its a DAMN good deal. But I already have SSD's in all my computers and the one that only has 64GB really doesn't need anything bigger for what it's used for.

Yep, just got a update. ETA is now April 3. That's more like it especially since I have Prime.

I have one of these in my laptop. While it's not the fastest drive out there, neither is my Dell D630. I get good read / write speeds, uses less power and was cheap. Does what I needed it to do...

Hard to believe like 4 years ago I paid 10 times this amount for a 120 GB OCZ SSD.

:eek:

I remember when I paid $245 for my 256GB 830 Pro it was considered a price mistake, the 128GB drive was supposed to have been pictured in the ad for $245 (as a sale price!)

With 3D flash on the way, I hope this deal is going to look similarly bad in another 4 years.
