    Cool. That's the same price I paid for my 256GB a week ago. I wish I had the extra cash for the 512GB model.

    I'm sure it would work fine in your optical drive bay.

    $350 for a 512gb. Wow, that's 30 bucks cheaper that what I got a new one for on flea-bay.

    I ordered 512 for $349.99 earlier. Good price...

    ... I should probably just get this now. Planning on installing a 128GB SSD in the future.

    I would wait to buy. The prices are consistently falling, so I wouldn't rush. But if you were waiting to buy, nows the time.

    Yeah, good suggestion. I don't really "need" it now - I can wait, perhaps there will be an even better sale in the future.

    Is the Crucial worth the extra $50?

    I'd say yes, but it's not on sale anymore.

    The Agility line is OCZ's "budget line" so to speak, it doesn't perform as well as the Vertex drives. I would probably compare the Vertex pricing to the M4 pricing for a better apples to apples comparison.

    I agree but the Vertex 4 is leaps faster than the M4. The M4s write speeds are kind of pathetic.

    Interesting. I had a Crucial in my cart at Amazon. For $349, I'm tempted. At $399, no.

    I'll guess the OCZ for $299 would still be significantly faster than the WD Black I have now, right? Even if it isn't as fast as the Vertex 4 or M4 . . .

    Eh, it'll go back down. Sign up for Newegg's daily deals email alerts if you haven't done so already.
