I seriously regret ordering the 80 GB Intel deal from TD over this one

Why? The V+200 is SandForce, with all the bugs. Intel is known to be very (more) reliable.

Yeah, you are right. I might not get the same speeds I would have with this drive but it will probably be reliable for a... (more)

Sold by Newegg. green for you

Newegg's return policy is horrible. I would shop somewhere else. Amazon is much better, I would check to see if they price match.

Tiger Direct has fantastic Customer Service on returns. But I doubt anyone else can match the After-Rebate price.

Completely agree! I went through it recently. I would think twice before ordering from Newegg again.

Green for OP, I just ordered it for the OS drive for a NAS Im trying out.

As for Newegg, Ive never had a problem with them with exchanges (even when it was my fault for ordering the wrong drive) or returns. Then again I place orders from my job through my account so the rep would see I generally make 5-10k a year in purchases.

got 2, thank you OP

These are very good deals, I agree. But the first two I looked at are SATA II. This is just fine if you're upgrading a SATA II system - SATA III would be wasted money in that case. But if your MotherBoard supports SATA III, I'd recommend a SATA III drive.

Thanks for pointing this out, though. I've edited my statement to specify that this is a great price for SATA III.

I'm pretty sure this is not expired as of 2:20 PM EST Oct 8th.

Nope, Agility 3 is also SATA III (and very similar to the Kingston drive).

Good to know. I didn't check them all. Thanks !

don't forget FC.

I bought mine a few hours ago. It looks like my CB will be $1.20 on $79.99 which is 1.5%

We saw the exact same pricing ($79.99 - $30 rebate) on September 13th: http://www.fatwallet.com/forums/expired-deals/1219521/. The 7.5mm was available at the same price, too: http://www.fatwallet.com/forums/expired-deals/1219522/

You saw it. I didn't. Did you post the deal to Fat Wallet ?

This was advertised as a two-day deal. But it looks like the price has increased $3 today. Not a deal-breaker, but annoying.

Now price is $52.99 after MIR.

Ninjered.




I think the prices on these are soon going to be coming down quite a lot, so I'm going to wait for a larger drive. Thanks though, OP; green for you.

Thanks for the GREEN !

I agree prices will be coming down; a 256GB HD may be $50 in the Spring.

But what will happen is you'll get more GB per Dollar; in general $50 will be the lowest price available. There won't be any $30 Hard Drives except for closeouts of old stock. (I could be wrong).

Anyhow, I need a Hard Drive NOW that can run Windows 7 with SATA III speed, and this Kingston fits the bill perfectly. I'll upgrade to a larger drive later.

Yeah, you are right. I might not get the same speeds I would have with this drive but it will probably be reliable for a long time. And since it is going in a Lenovo X100e netbook I don't plan to upgrade any time soon to a faster computer so longevity will be an issue.
