Yeah, that deal only ran for a short while if it's the one that I'm think of (OCZ through TD). SSD deals have been in the gutter for the last couple of months now so this is a decent deal (especially if you can get the 30% off to work for you).
I agree this is a great deal, but the thought of a 256GB for $110 isn't far fetched.
Thanks to OP and first poster of the 30% coupon. Went to my local staples and picked one up with no hassle and the 30% OD coupon. Apparently the cashier was too concerned with the fine print to read the "30% off regular priced items" LOL!
An SSD gives a nice seat of the pants speed increase.
3.5" HDD are standard and the bays should be as well. The bracket worked fine for me mounting into a 3.5" bay, it took a bit of flipping of the side pieces to get them right...but it fit fine width wise.
Oh wow, after googling, I found out I did install it wrong. I thought I was suppose to insert the SSD into each bracket's spacing between the two metal walls. Instead it should have been installed outside the frame. Doh! Didn't help that the SSD didn't come with instructions for that but it did have one for applying the adhesive for 9.5mm bays.
I too busted out the OD 30% coupon and Staples didn't even blink an eye...in fact...it was so ghetto...they didnt require any coupon code, number..they didn't even look at it. The woman had to do the percent off in dollars on a separate calculator. She was really nice...but cmon Staples....get with it! Either way...it was $67.96 with tax.
Not scorching hot...but hot enough to compel me to purchase one.
