Looks like a reg price you can find these drives for all the time but tiger direct canada has http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applicatio...&Sku=O261-6370 for $120 after mail in rebate. I would say go with the Sandforce controller on an SSD if you can as they seem like they are the best.

Also I would say to start shopping at NCIX if you just look at regular pricing NCIX is way cheaper than these guys.

Ya it seems you have to check most of the online stores to see who has the best sale on and that 80 GB is looking very tempting for myself as well.

Mediocre drive, great price. Up to you.
Personally I'd probably go for a 40GB intel around that price point.

So what drive are you talking about? The Kingston or the OCZ? and I would definately not go for an Intel drive for my boot drive, the sandforce drives are rated as the fastest.

Kingston uses Jmicron mostly now....

Intel is much better for a boot drive.

SandForce are rated the fastest.... depending on benchmark.
Once again...
