Ugh. The price throw me off instantly. I paid far less for my G.Skill drive (which is literally identical) months ago. The OCZ drives are available for less as well and they have arguably better firmware support.

EDIT: Holy crap! SSD prices have risen a LOT in the past few months. I know Flash supply isn't low so what gives?
