Now, I do not need to go to Microcenter on Fri. I was planning to get the Intel SSD from them for the same price.

Is this a good notebook replacement?

OCZ Vertex III or IV series only SSDs

Ordered. That solves that!

Thanks for this post!! Got several.

how reliable are these as a OS drive? Are they any less of a crapshoot compared to standard HDDs?

Amazon's already updated their pricing to meet Newegg's. Better deal if you have 3% CB Amazon card.

More reliable if you turn off defrag and make sure the motherboard supports the drive properly (TRIM enabled)
Other than defects, there are no moving parts to break and the only thing that can wear them down it constant re-writing. Modern drives have extra space hidden onboard that take over for any failed space.

That's what SSDs were made for. Intel drives are one of the more reliable brands.

Interesting that Amazon is matching prices.

Yes...beats the trip to microcenter....and lines on friday...


180GB OOS on Newegg, and Amazon raised the price... dammit, I was a few seconds late...

It was still in stock a few minutes ago.
The 180 gb is at a sweet price point, hence sold out faster.

Back in stock.
