  1. How do you figure this deal is $120 AR/Coupon??? I only manage to see: $244.99 - 65.00 - 20.00 = $159.99. What am I missing?

    I just heard SANTA CLAUS up on the roof, and he was dragging a big bag of gorgeous, high quality, extremely impressive, Solid State Drives!!! Sure hope one of them is for *ME*.

    I know these mindless postings seem like an extreme waste of bandwidth, but they're not. Not when I WIN a wonderful SSD on Christmas!
  8. As I said somewhere else in the forums, "this sure makes me miss IBM and Quantum". There was a time when there were 5 or 6 (major) HDD manufacturers. No more. Of course, there are probably *dozens* of SSD labels, right now, so maybe things aren't really that different. But damn, it sure seems like there's nobody left!

  12. Wow! I totally agree that they simply see an opportunity to shove it down the throats of consumers and build up their cash reserves. HDD (rotary) quality has been slipping in recent years (particularly @ Seagate) and warranty liabilities have soared. I guess they *did* have to do *something* to control the slide, but this sucks. What a shame that there are only two major players left in the rotary HDD market...

    The sole use for IE is Windows updates. Other than that, I could absolutely care less... Is it Christmas day yet?

    The rules have been changed by the administrators. Those posting the *least* amount from now until Christmas will have the best chance of winning a SSD. So, just stop it!
