Amazon has the Crucial M500 480 GB for $159.99. Since NewEgg has added a"free" junk item to it do you can't use the eBay payment discount, I think this is the best price on this SSD. 4.5 stars with over 1900 reviews!

No because it comes with a free gift worth about $5.

Amazon.com has Crucial M500 480GB SATA 2.5-Inch 7mm (with 9.5mm adapter) Internal Solid State Drive (CT480M500SSD1) on Sale for $159.99. Shipping is free.

This SSD has earned 4.6 stars (out of possible 5) based on 1,909 customer reviews at Amazon.

http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00BQ8RH...1977580642




"This SSD performs better than the 240gb version (read & write speed) because the 480gb has the 32 x 128 die configuration vs 16 x 128gb of the 240gb SSD. To see the M500's full performance potential, you'll need at least the 480GB version. The 240GB model has a much slower sequential write speed rating, and its random I/O rates are lower, as well in comparison."

I didn't bite in time.

Looks like the deal is dead. Here's hoping I find a better deal.
