Just got this email from them
Thanks for your purchase from us on Amazon yesterday for 120GB XLR8 Solid State Drive . As you may have guessed, this was an extraordinarily low price, and well ... that's because the price was an error. Not only was the price an error, our supplier didn't even have them available.
We took over 350 orders for this within 5 minutes. You folks sure know how to find a deal quickly! Anyway, we spent the rest of the day trying to figure out why our distributor pushed this item (and at that price) into our Amazon feed. You see, this supplier is one of the nation's largest suppliers and powers the inventory and pricing of nearly every Amazon reseller. When they accidentally added that SKU, QTY, and PRICE into their datafeed, it went live on hundreds of sellers' accounts erroneously.
Here's the GOOD NEWS:
We spent the entire day hashing through this mistake with our supplier. They conceded it was their mistake and committed to try and resolve it. We've been waiting since yesterday to hear back from the supplier, who had to contact the manufacturer, PNY.
I just heard back from the supplier today and they informed me that PNY is having more manufactured and will be shipping more of these to them ASAP. THAT MEANS WE WILL BE ABLE TO FULFILL YOUR ORDER AT THE PRICE PROMISED, even at a considerable loss.
The BAD NEWS?
Since there was no inventory available and PNY doesn't even have these in their warehouses yet, it will take anywhere from 2-4 weeks to ship the order.
SO WHAT's the BOTTOM LINE HERE?
Here's the bottom line. This is on backorder and should ship anywhere between 2-4 weeks. You'll get reminders from Amazon that the item(s) haven't shipped yet (as will we).
If you wish to keep the drive on backorder, you don't need to take any action.
If you'd rather not wait on this "too good to be true-because it was!" deal and would prefer to cancel the order, simply follow these instructions:
1. Reply to [e-mail address removed] and request to cancel the order.
2. Be sure and provide your order number, which was "109-657XXXX-068XXXX"
We want to apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. We work diligently to make sure our inventory is accurate and updated frequently. In this case, we pass the distributor's product updates directly into Amazon.Com. When the distributor erroneously added this, it was activated on our account. When we started seeing the first few orders pour in, we immediately deleted the listing and started investigating, but not before your order, along with several hundred more, came along.
I appreciate your taking the time to read this email and we appreciate your gracious understanding. If you can wait a few weeks, you'll be the proud new order of a PNY drive at a fraction of the cost! If you'd rather not wait, just let us know and we'll cancel it for you.
Finally, if Amazon comes along and requests feedback, we hope that you'll recognize that we're doing everything we can to make this right, even at what could be a significant expense. Mistakes do happen, and it's how a company handles those mistakes that matter most. We are doing all that we can to handle this in an excellent way.

I think I'll wait it out.
