In 2052, SD deals will be beamed directly into your mind, while your genetically modified monkey butler will make you breakfast.
When Belevedere Monkey pours you cereal, this SSD will be in the cereal box as a free giveaway.
I'm waiting for 2052. But thanks to the OP.

In 2023, these will be like those junky 2GB flash drives that are given away at corporate events.

To all member who cares about this SSD performance...
I am complete noob on SSD, and i was doing research this morning.
I came to an understanding this SSD use Sandforce controller and it used to be problematic with TRIM.
But with the latest firmware R211, TRIM is no longer an issue.

I have been comparing the prices of 240gb SSD and they have been around $110-140 when its on sale for about 9 months now.
There have not been any drop at all on SSD.

|tigerplayer||yeah, CA tax kills many deals....|
|12-27-2012 10:52 AM|
nice find, OP, i am about to buy one, but I cant login to ebay at work...
Question: I see it features "2.5” SATA 6 Gb/s "
does it means it work with SATA II (3 GB/S) ?

If you live in CA, then this is not that good of a deal. $299 + tax = $322.17 or $0.67/GB
Last week, Beach Camera had the Crucial m4 512GB for $329 with V.me, no tax for CA. $0.64/GB
