    I paid nearly a $1 a GB for my 830's, I cant wait till these are so cheap a 1TB SSD is more competitive than mechanical.

    They are catching up. It will only be a matter of time before mechanical is obsolete.

    Nice price/deal but the reason for that is very obvious;

    Sequential Read/Write Speeds: 520 MB/s / 160 MB/s :wtf:

    The ForceGT is faster. I think that must be a typo on amazon still.

    I just tried to check for you and could not find the 128 either by that link or by searching amazon. Maybe they ran out.

    Microcenter has the 256GB model for $170 for those who missed the Amazon deal. You can get it online too.
