Not a bad deal at all. Just with all the 256GB deals being $160/170 and the Plextor M5P being $200 this drive just really loses its pull as a super great deal.
1100 Total SSD's handled between two jobs. Plextor M3s, M5s, Intel 320s, and Samsung 470/830/840s are reliable (1 intel 8MB bug failure, one M5s failure). 3 M4 errors, 1 failure among ~75 of them. Sandforce controlled drives, 13 RMAs among ~200 units.
Nice deal on the 256gb cherryville, put a 128 gb in my second computer on a SD from last week. Performance good, and also few worries about its reliability over the time I expect to be using it with those nice micron/ crucial MLC chips. Worked perfect out of the box.
