Not MLC blah blah blah, but still the cheapest 1tb you'll find until Black Friday. Plenty good for regular users like me

$35 for 120, $50 for 240, $100 for 500, $200 for 512 are the prices that tempt me.

I'm still personally going to wait since I still have plenty of storage.

How does this compare to SanDisks 960GB Ultra II?

Not really. Both of these are cheaper by $5 with Visa Checkout:

Each has some ups and downs you'll see on benchmarks and infrequently (if at all) in real usage. Neither is a samsung evo 850, but both cost a lot less.

FWIW the trion 150 and ultra II are the two SSD's I've been buying lately, whichever is cheaper.

Still $100 more than I'm willing to spend, especially after seeing 480's for $59, $200 for a 1TB is too expensive. SSD's seem to have hit a brick wall lately on their prices coming down to where they should be, they need to get back on track.

SSDs/Desktop and Laptop Memory/Flash Memory pricing is staying stable or going up, not down in the near-term. There has been a tight supply on NAND and vendors are kind of restricted. If you look at Newegg... most the Desktop and Laptop RAM prices have gone up anywhere from $6 to $10 over the past month or so. Also, SSD prices have crept up $5 to $10 and flash memory has gone up very slightly ($1 to $3). Those Fry's deals you are referencing ($59 for 480 GB OCZ TRION SSD and $138.05 AR for the 960 GB Patriot Blast SSD), were honestly price mistakes. Fry's is just a dumb retailer and forgot to adjust the pre-discount pricing... so once the promo codes went active, people got their SSDs dirt cheap.

Here is what they were actually SUPPOSED to cost:
OCZ [frys.com]
Patriot [frys.com]

Hey, I got the e-mail for the $59 deal, I could have ordered it had I needed it, so it wasn't a price mistake. Memory/SSD/etc prices will come back down, these things are very cyclical, plus Black Friday is coming, and I'm fortunately in no rush.

Actually almost all the companies raised prices in the last few months. All the talk about increased storage size for less money has been put on hold while they all do some last minute collective gouging. Prices went up for Samsung, PNY (a reseller), Intel, Toshiba, Micron, Sandisk, etc.

So what do you think the odds are that all those same companies encountered production "problems" at the same time, when before three months ago they all said something to the effect "new products will be out by Summer"? I know some of them share tech, but not all do and they shouldn't all experience the issues at the same time.

Tacit collusion and price fixing is what I think, but heck, I also think management at most corporations is about as honest as they have to be, and only when forced after getting caught doing something fraudulent. Before that, not so much..... Big Grin

Samsung is selling their old 2nd gen nand, down market 750 evo (made for 3rd world Asian countries where it was supposed to be very cheap) for the same or more than the 850 was previously. Actually in the last week it was more expensive on Amazon than the 850, with some fools saying it was a great deal. The 750 is outdated and simply not worth buying IMO. It should be selling at $50 for a 500gb, but I'd probably never buy one at any price (it purportedly uses the 840 evo technology that doesn't last).

Prices won't change until close to Christmas, so I suggest everyone wait...

The industry has been slapped with price fixing before, if they're doing it now (again) I'm sure they'll get caught and slapped (again). I feel bad for anyone that needs one "NOW" because they're going to pay more and get less, but such is the nature of the beast.

ssd was supposed to get cheaper when HDD companies like Seagate are getting involved, but apparently the OPPOSITE has happened.. although it's not as bad as the 1990s dram price fixing and real shortages in the industry. the main killer app for ssd drives is the super fast OS boot time, besides that it is a novelty to have 50 to 100 pct read and write times. certainly not worth up to 5x HDD prices per megabyte.
