    Tempted.

    I would need a 3.5" adapter i think. Is the silverstone thing ok, or better to get Adata locally?

    Also looking for 64 for dad's box, but its ancient machine.
    Debating going cheap on ocz petrol or suggest he (buy) get an intel.
    Perhaps another thread.

    Just bought a 256 which worked out to about $290 delivered.

    Pretty sweet per gb cost.

    The 256gb is now comparatively good value and hopefully will become the new sweet spot in SSD price/performance/capacity stakes. I think we are going to see some continual tumbling pricing with SSD's in the near future considering every man and their dog now produces SSD's in various flavors.

    considering moving up from my 2x 160GB Intel G2's to 2x 256GB m4's at this price, will have to see.

    Might want to get in quick, Amazon's pricing seems to change by the hour. This is the longest I've seen these at one price (and the first time <$300)!

    I'm waiting for the $1/Gb price point... At this rate, it shouldn't be too much longer :)

    How ridiculous suggesting that.

    Can you realistically see a rep. of either company using such a method (and on a relatively low traffic site, in the international tech forum space) to drive sales for such a low margin, low-ish value product?

    Dreaming.

    Heh nah mate, don't work for either! Just been on the lookout for good value SSD's. More than happy to stop pointing out when their price is low if it's offending you so much :confused:??

    Got my 128GB one on Friday, haven't installed it in the Mrs' laptop yet. The 256 should be here next week hopefully!
