    Haha I meant it, good luck to you with them fulfilling. Highly doubt they will though. I bet there have been thousands ordered already. When a deal this ridiculous gets posted on SD people order hundreds at a time.

    This is a mistake right? Ordered 2 just in case it works. $20, what the fuck.

    Ordered one. I'm pretty sure it will get canceled, but fuck it. Doesn't hurt to try.

    Now shows as $89.99 ($10 savings) in checkout for me.

    Good luck.

    I dunno, hard to believe that both the SATA and M.2 versions were price mistakes when both were discounted. People thought the Dishonored 2 thing for $20 was a mistake too (and maybe it was), but those shipped.

    I agree that it seems odd but, there is a little bit of hope at least. :p

    In for 10. I figure I'm walking away with a bunch of drives to sell for a decent profit in system builds, or locally.. OR I'm in for 2 cancellation emails.

    I didn't bother with M.2.

    Their speed spec was wrong too... 600Mbps? More like 545/525. But that's still fine for $20

    You can get up to 5 at the $20 price. After that it jumps up.

    I usually don't jump on these, but that is a pretty sweet deal. Hell, might have to sell them on FSFT. :)

    Subtotal: $499.95
    Order Level Promotion: -$400.00
    Shipping & Handling: $12.99
    Shipping Discount Applied: -$12.99
    Sales Tax: $8.25
    Total Amount: $108.20

    I do have a LONG standing Dell account as well. HardOCP actually used to be featured on their website with a statement about using Dell servers. :) Maybe they will let me slide?

    I guess someone is listening? :p

    if Western Digital can't make the WD Blue even cheaper, it will not be able to secure a place in the crowded SSD market.

    Don't really need any SSD's right now, and these wouldn't have been my first choice....

    ..but at this price I ordered 2 as spares.

    Totally expecting my order to be canceled though. This can't possibly have been intentional.

    I tell you what, if I actually get mine, I will sell 3 to cover the cost of the drives and give the other two away. :)

    Looks like you did the same thing I did. But I did place 2 separate orders to get my 10. I've gotten a sales confirmation on one of them. But we'll see.

    Strangely, had to clear my cache to see the reduced price. Received this in email:

    Subtotal:

    $199.98
    Order Level Promotion: -$160.00
    Shipping & Handling: $6.99
    Shipping Discount Applied: -$6.99
    Sales Tax: $2.40
    Total Amount: $42.38

    Someone may loose their job over this.
