    Might grab one. Guessing they aren't going to put them up until the sale starts. I can't see any refurbs on there now.

    At this point, 1$/gig for an SSD isn't all that appealing to me.

    I doubt they'd sell it if they hadn't found and fixed the issue.

    They just updated the site..
    (The Crucial newsletter referred to refurbished RealSSD parts. The SSD $1/GB promotion features refurbished M225 SSDs. We apologize for the confusion.)

    and the site it bogged down like no other... wont refresh or load


    Server is too busy

    I was getting the "Scheduled Maintenance" messages at 9:00 mountain time. Finally got the page to load around 9:30 and there were no SSDs listed on the page.
