    Some good deals, I want to buy the 240GB but I really need two of them to make it worth it. Still, these are the best prices I've seen on this very popular drive. All three sizes are on sale, the 240GB sale ends today.

    Awesome, $10 cheaper! Whats the difference between the agility and the one I posted?

    Both of them are really 256GB, right? Only 240GB is useable

    Yeah, both have 256GB but some of the space is for over-provisioning to keep the SSD snappy. Agility 2 has worse random write performance but that's all, in real world there shouldn't be noticeable difference.
