    Before pulling the trigger on NewEgg, does anybody know if I can get it cheaper someplace else other than NewEgg?

    NewEgg has it for $149.99

    The deal expires in the next couple of hours, but with this coupon you can get the 128GB 830 for $119 with free shipping on newegg. Better hurry deal ends at 11:59PM PT.

    EMCYTZT1899

    EDIT: Was even on sale for $90 a week or two ago.

    Wow, I must have gotten a great deal. I purchased it from Newegg for $90 about a week ago, shell shocker deal.

    I personally did a lot of research over several months and decided finally to go with a SanDisk Extreme 480GB SSD which I purchased on buy.com for $324 + $43 in buy.com credit with free shipping. It was probably the Best/Highest quality SSD that has been advertised at or near the 512GB capacity for the price. Furthermore it has better Active power management than the Samsung 830. The long held criticism with the Samsung 830 is that at peak activity it can drain 7 -8 Watts which is pretty high. It does have great Idle power consumption though. Just some food for thought, hope it helped.

    I have a OCZ that drains too much power from my battery. I was looking at going with a Samsung 830, but you say that the Extreme is better on the power. Have you had any issues thus far?

    I just picked one up for $49.00 plus 6.00 shipping. I can't believe they are this cheap. :)

    Newegg. I had a 50% off frequent buyer coupon that they allowed me to stack with a 25% off coupon. It pays to be a loyal customer.

    I was shocked when I got 25% off a new MBA last year from Amazon. I read where others here at MacRumors got lucky too. I do a lot of online business. I've found the three best places to be Amazon, Newegg, and Apple.com. Obviously I pay full price through Apple, but Amazon & Newegg help to offset that fact.

    Nope no issues so far! I have TRIM enabled too. I can boot MacOsX Lion with Windows 7 via Parallels 7 in 15 seconds. Shutdown times are like 2-4 seconds. And no issues with slowdowns or anything like that while using it.

    I got my 256gb for $189 shipped from newegg when they had it on sale. Worked great on Lion and works just as good on Mountain Lion. Trim enabled.
