Lowest price on this was $35.00 about a month ago. This isn't a crazy deal, but I'm thumbing up this drive because I'm really satisfied with the performance. I have two of them in a couple of 4-5 year old laptops, and those things boot FAST.

I had an even older laptop that I did a fresh install test with vs. the ADATA SP550 240gb, and the Sandisk booted a little faster and seemed to work a little faster in general.

You can even grab a few ebay bucks while you're at it. The 3 month e-bucks period ends this month.

I bought 2 of these last time they were at this price. 120 GB is not enough these days, and thankfully my MB supports RAID, so I put 2 in a striped raid array for 240GB. But then I did the math and found out I would have been better off just buying a 240GB one. Thumbs up if all you need is 120 GB.

Math with what? You mean the cost? or the speed?

Speed wise, you're better off with the raid.

Most versions of Windows can be stripped down to under 20GB, although garbage left after updates could keep that rising. Turn hibernation off (which it should be for SSD'S anyway) and that saves you a little more disk space. If you run a scheduled 3rd party backup program like Macrium Reflect to save to an alternate disk, you can trim down any of the restore/backup features for Windows, saving some more space.... If you have 16GB or more of RAM, you can cut the page file size down to around 500MB to 1GB as it will likely never be needed for RAM overflow... using CCleaner instead of Windows "Disk Cleanup" is faster and more in-depth for deleting files that can be regularly purged, like update backups.

Just saying, I recently replaced my home server's 240GB OS drive with an old 60GB SSD I had lying around. It runs Win7 Pro. I made the above tweaks, and even with a ton of other software installed, I'm still under 30GB... Although I admittedly never ran disk cleanup on the 240GB that was in there, prior to tweaks and clean up, I was using over 50GB of space...

Don't forget Trim feature doesn't work in Raid and you have to remember to do it manually on regular basis.

Just want to tell my little problem with the PayPal system when I ordered this drive from the last deal. I use my phone (iOS) app to order one drive but got an error which state there is a problem with the credit card, I'm guessing because of network hiccups. After switching the payment method to my bank and resubmit the order but I received 2 confirmation thus 2 orders. I cancel one of the order but Newegg ignore and ship them anyway.

Anyway, no big deal I just have a spare drive to use for something else.

Just FYI in case you running into similar situation. Do not switch payment and resubmit order. I think cancel and reopen the app probably fix the bug.

Some readers may not be aware that SSD performance can differ greatly among drives.
For your reference, and to help make an informed decision, the PassMark benchmark on this is 3000.

By way of comparison,
Samsung SSD 830 Series = 2,944
Samsung SSD 840 EVO 120GB = 3,564
Samsung SSD 850 EVO 120GB = 4,011
