What Steam sale? The real sale hasn't happened yet. Smilie

This is a good deal but personally I'm waiting for either a 960GB deal or for the price of these 480GB models to fall below $140, because then they'll be better value per GB vs. the $73 deal we saw for the 240GB version).

I bought the 240 GB for 80 - thought that deal was also nice (even though it's not the lightning deal)

The last real Steam sale was in summer. You've been wiped out since summer? Wink

Seriously though I think they are referring to that quasi-sale that happened the other week. That wasn't the real winter sale though.

It was 163 on newegg i believe. Trust me when I say this: the speed between the top 4 tiers of ssds is so negligible, you can't tell the difference. I just upgraded to a extreme pro from a crucial m4, I cannot for the life of me tell the difference. I did a boot up and shutdown speed test against my brother's vertex 4, my computer was an astounding 1 second faster. Seriously, can't tell the difference. Get the one with the better warranty and better value.
