    Well i bought an 128gb OCZ SSD on ebay.
    Total Cost $401.59-$108.30 cashback = $293.29
    Seller advertised a $90 manufacturer's rebate so potentially I could get this SSD for 203.29, but even for 293.29 I think its a good deal. Unfortunately I had to pay tax because i live in CA and the seller is in CA too.

    If you don't have to pay tax you save another 36 bux

    Wow thanks for catching that for me. I got the ebay seller to cancel the transaction. I instead got a 128gb Samsung SSD off ebay for about $260 after 30% cashback. An even better deal imo

    I reckon the only drive not exhibiting these issues so far are the Intel based ones.

    well just the ones that use the Jmicron controller and are MLC. SLC drives are unaffected, but they are significantly more expensive. right now I don't want to bother with looking at which drives are which :)

    I have one of these (in a Mac Pro) and I have to admit that they work as advertised. Really smooth.

    I can't wait until SSD prices fall into the realm of affordability.

    `I must admit I have been tempted by the onslaught of cheep MLC based drives, but chickened out due to lack of real world Mac Pro RAID5 benches. Ordered some SAS disks instead :(

    But I am watching Intel SLC for price drops as more people realise SSD is the way to go (and that they are infact every bit as reliable as magnetic media) < no pun intended.....
