    More and more SSD will lower their price. June is when HDD will drop their price.

    "SOLD OUT" in less than 24 hours. Glad mine is on the way.

    Edit: Just figured the cost out at .78 dollars per Gb. Not bad compared to what they used to be.

    Wow, that's only $30 or so more than what I paid for my 128 gig M4 a little ways back. Too bad they're sold out already, though.

    BTW, Buy.com still has 'em for the same price w/FS.

    I'll upgrade my 120gb when I can get a 512gb for ~$200-250

    I would like to get another 256Gb for a dedicated gaming drive when the prices come down a bit more. Maybe $100 to $125 or so.
