Very nice deal... wish it was in 3-4 weeks when i'll have my $ set aside to buy my new SSD

Probably not good intel, but I read a while back (might have been a few years now) that larger SSDs were less reliable/more prone to failure than smaller capacity counterparts. Not sure how that would make sense, and doubt it's true, but want to confirm since I'd love a 500+GB SSD without worry of instability.

Not really. I mean it is tiger direct, and that is kind of a dealbreaker.

Well the larger 750GB has a bigger PCB, why would it be less reliable?

Not sure. I'm trying to remember, but i think i read it on Tom's Hardware back when i frequented there. The only reasoning i can come up with it that it was early in the consumer SSD times and people were unsure.

I regret paying $800 for 500GB Crucial SSD back in late 2011 -_-
