Nothing special about this price point. We've seen it several times already. Lowest for this drive was $88.

True, but many prefer Amazon deals due to their superior return policies. I buy often from Newegg and Tiger, but I would rather buy from Amazon because in certain situations they will pay for return shipping and won't charge you a restocking fee.

It stinks when you get a deal price but then have to pay for return shipping or pay a %15 restocking fee, those are 'deal killers'.

I believe that as long as the item is defective, both Amazon and Newegg pay for your return shipping and charge no restocking fee. Not sure about TigerDirect.

I'm giving this the thumbs up, but it's not a "super hot price", just a better than normal price.

I can vouch for the drive though - we buy these drives at my office for laptop and desktop upgrades and they've been very reliable and the end users (most of whom have not experienced a PC with SSD yet still) are completely blown away by the new speed they see from their computers.

TU, good dealnod

Newegg and Tiger return policies are various and differ depending on what you buy, so it's complicated and you need to check each particular item. I counted 47 different return policies on Newegg.

Newegg Return Policy [newegg.com]

My experience has been that after 30 days they will direct you to pursue a RMA directly with the manufacturer, and the manufacture will not pay for shipping.

That has been my experience as of late. They had previously been much more forgiving with this policy, but the last RMA was a pain in the butt.

Decent deal. Agree that I would much rather buy from Amazon than worry about Newegg's sketchy return policies.

Have had this drive in a build since August with zero issues. OK price--if you're looking for immediate, buy it.

If you cry about it enough Newegg will always take care of you. Including paying for return shipping.

I have newegg premier and they always take care of me without much fuss.

Since Amazon started charging tax in NC I am much more liable to give newegg my business for these tech things. Especially if prices are the same.

Good to know, I wonder if you get better treatment being in Premier. I'll have to make sure I'm all teary eyed next time I have to deal with them.

I do buy from Newegg (and Tiger for that matter) all the time as they often have better deals, no taxes for me either way so that's not in my equation.

Having just gone through an RMA for a motherboard, I did wish I could have just emailed Amazon, gotten a free ship return, and a new motherboard. Now I'll always have those nagging doubts about my 'repaired' board.

Anyway, to each his own, various people have various loyalties to various retailers depending on their situation and experiences.

I believe the Tiger Direct return policy is you return the item, get no refund, and then they mail you a letter that says "Haha!"
