    Micron is doing good for SSD market. I just wish their SATA motherboard components were up to par.

    Yeah, prices have dropped through the floor the first half of the year. $65 or less for a 120 GB SSD or 240 GB for under $100.... pretty good deal if anyone is still on the fence about them. :)

    Bring it on, if it keeps dropping I might eventually move my entire system over to SSD (with the more important stuff on the Samsung 512 GB Pro which apperently can do over a Petabyte before it craps out) and only use mechanical drives for external backups.

    I bought two 256GB SanDisk Extreme II SSD drives this past year for $250 each, and I love them. They quickly fell in price to something like $160 when on Amazon's lightning sale. Excellent products! The next time I'll buy an SSD is when I can get at least a 2TB drive for ~$600. I can't wait to finally be on a full SSD PC (well I'll keep a HDD just for pics & porn).

    I want my PC to be like me, not moving at all but still getting stuff done faster, cheaper and more economically than the mechanical .... humans 0.o

    Just went with a Crucial M550 m.2 drive. Prices seem pretty fair as it is.
