Microcenter has a Dell 50GB G914J SSD for $34.99. This is a great way to speed up an older core 2 laptop.

It is available in the web store also. I thought it was bricks and mortar only when I posted it but now it shows available for "Web Store"

It allows shipping but it's $5.99, which kills it for me.

These were $29 2weeks ago, almost got one. The biggest drawback is no TRIM support, otherwise an older/slower but solid drive and would be a perfect upgrade for an older SATA I/II laptop.

Can you add in-store to your title please...

pls also add 2.5 inch internal to the title.

The cost is $40.98 before tax.

Why the red for asking this? I ALWAYS get asked to do this on my Fry's or Microcenter posts !

Possibly because somebody has posted this is available for shipping? I haven't checked as not interested in the drive but there are the rare (these days) Fry's and MC deals that do allow shipping.

Edit: The now sold out TD deal for the 80GB X-25M for $40 after rebate was probably a better deal if you weren't averse to rebates.

After missing out on that deal twice now, I figured this was the best I was going to get.

Ah, didn't catch that, I just read the original post which said "bricks and mortar only"...

Here is a simple benchmark comparison of the Dell versus a Vertex 2 in a C2D laptop.

Order confirmation said it would ship Tuesday...waited all week for it to arrive...then I see an email this morning saying the order has been canceled due to availability...yet they still list the drive for sale on their website?

What a disappointing first order from Micro Center.

As of 12/19, it's available for in-store pick up only.

this ssd will not fit most laptop. its not a standard 9mm laptop drive. it is much bigger. performance is slower and doesnt support trim compare to other consumer ssd. this ssd supposely an enterprise class ssd, but i had bad experience with these samsung rebadged Dell enterprise ssd in the past with sudden death(i had 200gb and 400gb model both died). the one i ordered from microcenter, according disk utilities, after several days of use, this drive already down to 95% health.
