Waiting for Crucial MX200 1TB under $300

Recommended Posts

Upgrading an HP Pavilion dv7-6b63us.

Installed 16gb Balistic memory

& XT Momentus 750GB,

but I'd like to change out the hybrid for an SSD.

(want a faster boot & longer battery time)

Read reviews, power ratings etc

& don't want to spend much more on this older laptop

The Crucial MX200 1GB looks like the best tradeoff.

I saw it on either Amazon or Newegg, briefly (for about half a day) circa $279,

but failed to order in time.

Saw it once on Ebay from some fellow in Texas for $275, but am fearful of Ebay "too good 2 B True"s.

Does anyone know of any sales that might be coming up?

I search NE, Amzn & Tiger every day

and as what I have is faster than when I bought it,

and the boot isn't intolerable,

I'll wait.

If the Surface Pro 4 becomes available at a reasonable price before then,

FUGETABOUIT!

<_<

TIA

We rarely get that kind of material before a sale, so I'm of no help. However, I would say $279 seems like a darn good deal considering. I hope you find it and report back here when you do!

If you're not set on the MX200 only, Tigerdirect has PNY CS2111 for $270 shipped after $30 rebate:

Subtract from that any credit card bonus rewards you might have (Discover Deals has permanent 5% bonus cashback at TigerDirect, Bank of America credit cards sometimes have 10%), and you end up a lot lower than your $300 threshold.
