"25% off"... 25% off what, OP? Don't post "% off" numbers as they are made up.

It's actually 99.99% off at my store.

Did I mention that my store sells it for $13,498?

What? Don't post "99.9% off at my store" without telling me which store. Mad Mad Mad

It's Intel. Seems overpriced for performance struggling to be on par with a Samsung 840 EVO.

Interesting - based on the numbers I saw, it was equivalent to published 840 numbers. I know from personal experience that the 840 numbers are about 100% too high (ie., they should read about 50% of the published values for real life use on a 70% full disk)

I have an older Intel X25 (yeah, quite a bit older Smilie ) and the numbers from that one were close to published numbers.

I still have several x25-e's simply as keepsakes, no more slc drives around. But yea if you look at the reviews the competitors are now about equal to 850 evo's, they are all 3d nand now. I got the 256GB 545s when it was on sale on ebay, works fine. Tests are extensive enough now that there is no difference vs real world. Interesting to note, the metal shells no longer feel premium on intels, it feels like soda can aluminum.

Not much you can do with the older ones except take them apart if you're interested in that. But regarding real world performance numbers, those so far have not come close to published test numbers for me. Admittedly, I haven't run any on drives from the last year or so since I had no need to upgrade.
