Amazon has the Intel 520 SSD 480GB for $369.99 with free shipping. Cheapest I've seen it for.

Intel 520 480GB [amazon.com]

How worth it is this exactly? At $370 for 480GB is about $0.77 per GB, but there have been deals in the past for a Crucial M4 512GB at $330. (http://slickdeals.net/f/5306850-512GB-Crucial-M4-2-5-SATA-III-6Gb-s-Internal-Solid-State-Drive-SSD-CT512M4SSD2-330-After-Rebate-Free-Shipping)

That comes out to $0.64 per GB for the M4. Granted, the Intel 520 is supposed to be slightly faster and has a 5 year warranty, but comparing against a Crucial M4 512GB at $330? I'd go with the M4.

Considering you can get a 480GB Sandisk Extreme SDSSDX-480G-G25 for $310 at buy.com or $315 on Amazon, I don't see how this is a good deal.

O RLY?

If you look at Amazon reviews for both drives, Sandisk has higher percentage of 5-star review and lower percentage of 1-star reviews.

So unless you have some better data for these particular models, you're just making things up.
