Newegg has them on sale. I'm not affiliated in any way.. but they are down to ~$174 after rebate.
Must mean Vertex 3 is coming! WOOO!!!
Here's a link for those that are interested: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...551&cm_re=120_vertex_2-_-20-227-551-_-Product
i wouldn't touch a vertex 2 - especially since the 32gb 25nm NAND flash models are awful,,, and despite they are giving free exchange for the 64GB die size 25nm flash - i'd personally wait for the vertex 3
i'm a regular on the ocz forums atm... and every1 there recommends waiting for the vertex 3
Except the vertex three is speculated at basically twice the price.. yikes.. so we may see price drops...perhaps, though these may be them.
I ordered one for my old sata 1 mbp - because it doesn't matter and it will be faster than what I have now.. and help me get another year out of it hopefully.
I will however run the toolkit, but given newegg was processing returns - I'd think they have sorted things out - since they will just end up taking it back anyway.
As far as them being awful,the actual real world difference I read was quite small.. imperceptible to some even. Anyway, I'd like to run the toolkit to see, can it be run on the drive using an external enclosure?
I dunno, in my case I just don't think it matters. Once can always wait.. i'd rather wait for another macbook rev and limp along with the vertex 2 I think.. though I do want to get the 32/25 version
"OCZ's targeting a price of just $250 for the 120GB version"
Interesting, thanks.. maybe I'll have to give it a miss then.
this was what the general feeling over at the ocz forums
ps owc are keeping very quiet = i head they were working on sf2000 controller back in Nov - but nothing since
ps hope sandforce gets their act together and release a mac friendly FW updater
