How did you find out about the Transcend? I tried looking around for it, but had no luck.
I used Google and click the first link.

Oh and this is a good browser add-on to help you find the best prices: http://www.priceblink.com/

That's embarrassing. Probably should have been searching with SSD320 instead of TS256GSSD320. doh.gif

Thanks for the SSD recommendations and the link. I'll be sure to keep an eye on their price and hopefully get a good deal on one of them soon thumb.gif

I found this:

SanDisk Extreme

over at BB for $169 on sale. I believe that's the same one in your list?

If that's the SSD you plan to go with, it's slightly cheaper on Amazon - http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B006EKJ8UI/
It's also potentially tax free and will probably get to you sooner even if you don't have Prime.

Thanks!

I do have Prime and I'm guessing Amazon will keep it at that price longer then BB will.

I'm really leaning towards the SanDisk. Should I jump on it?

Oh.

It's a good choice though, right? That is the one listed in your Toggle recommendation? I'll be sure to keep an eye on its price and use the tool you provided.

Damn, Best Buy raised the price on the SanDisk all the way to $229! ohno-smiley02.gif

As I thought, Amazon kept the price at $168.

Yea, I'm in the same boat. Want to upgrade my 120GB Intel 510 to something 256/240GB. Thought about jumping on the M4 deal, but looks like those are ready to be put out to pasture. Guess I will backup and do a Secure Erase and see if that frees up some space.

FWIW, I got the SanDisk from Amazon. So far glad I did. 7.9 WEI in W7 and 8.1 WEI in W8. Thanks for the help guys!
