Showing as "Sold out online". Will anyone price match TigerDirect?

Not sure who thumbed down but this is a good deal IMO. Tigerdirect has been perfect with all the rebates I've done so far. Even the one that was late because I couldn't get it out because of superstorm Sandy.
Now I wonder if I could use this in a RAID 1 mirror, of if that would confuse the caching. Anyone have any experience?

IMO $99.99 is the new $149.99. Plus tax for me.
What I have descided to do is install a Samsung 830 120gb ssd for my main drive and then re-use my existing hd (640gb) as bulk storage on my laptop. I will remove my laptop'rs blu-ray rw drive and put my 640gb hd in the now open bay, mounting it with this hd caddy http://www*amazon*com/gp/product/B0056EW4A4. I will then install my bare blu-ray drive into a portable drive enclosure for use on ALL my computers.
I have two of these drives. I had Best Buy price match the $99 a few months back. I am not too impressed with them. I use them as spare drives to compliment my SSDs in two of my laptops (SSD is the boot OS and these are used for storing music/photos).
The benefit to these drives is if you use them as your primary drives because the small SSD will start caching your most used files. If you are using them as regular drives,you wont see any benefit. In my case, I am only seeing 110 MB/sec read/write on newish machines with SATA III 6 Gb/s connectors. The same SATA buses can saturate a SSD at 500 MB/sec so it is definitely not my hardware.
