    Couldn't resist. This is basically an OCZ Vertex drive and it does support TRIM! Thanks for posting this here!

    Can somebody confirm with a source that it does in fact support TRIM? I did a bit of googling, but couldn't find anything solid.

    EDIT: Found a review of the retail product on their page supporting TRIM under firmware 1916.

    "more durable alternative to hard disk drives" Who to hell come up with the idea of putting this sentence when selling the refurbished part.

    I'd buy as many as they had/I could afford and eBay as many as I didnt want.


    So all but 2. :laugh:

    Apparently the crucial reps are saying they are all gone. However, from some of the posts I am reading Crucial is going to try and fulfill all the orders. Sounds crazy to me, but if it happens then major KUDOS to Crucial as a company!

    Just be careful guys. The 32GB isn't SATA. They're mini PCI-e.

    The 64GBs are out of stock and they don't know if they get it back in stock or not.

    And above all it only has 30days warranty. I don't want one sorry.

    Nooooooo!

    THE 64GB DRIVES ARE OUT OF STOCK.

    NOOOOOO!

    I spent an hour @ USPS waiting for these 2 old people to finish buying f**king stamps (sorry, I can't help it) and miss out on this amazing deal.

    Don't feel bad Kant, apparently they were gone at about 10:50AM Pacific. At least that's what the SD forums are saying.

    But if Crucial was going to honor the sales I could've gotten one minutes after this thread was made because it wasn't announced OOS yet. :banghead: I've been looking for a cheap boot drive and this was sooooo perfect. :cry:

    TIFWIW, but a user on SD forums ordered 1 drive at like 11:30AM, and he got an email saying they had to cancel his order.

    Darn! I just read a post on [H] where some guy said he ordered 10 4 days ago and they all arrived. Guess I was just too late. :ohwell:

    That dude was kidding. However, somebody posted that they replaced his order with a brand new drive. I'm going to wait it out until I either get a tracking number or a cancellation email.

    Mine moved from "order submitted" to "Order Processing" so that's a good sign. Keeping my fingers crossed that they fulfill it.
