    SAMSUNG 840 Series MZ-7TD250BW 2.5" 250GB SATA III...

    Newegg has the Samsung 840 250GB] for $158.39 w/ free EggSaver shipping (or add $2 for 3-day shipping) after code BLKFRIDAY50, and it also includes Far Cry 3. Quite a deal for someone who is in the ssd market.

    Just came across this on [H]
    edit: thanks z77snapshot for fixing my link :)




    Also, the 840 250GB on eBay for $140, no game.

    I got mine for $160 with three day shipping. :) I was going to get FC3 anyways, so a 250gb SSD for a hundred bones is a pretty good deal!

    Congrats and nice purchase, I'd say it's a quality deal. I mean the 830 256 ssds were barely touching the $160 recently so considering a free new game too, it's a good call. If I had the money, I'd probably jump too.

    LMAO :laugh:

    It runs Toggle NAND memory. Which is the best memory in SSDs right now. 2nd best is Synchronous. Please, share why we should be avoiding these SSDs.

    I would still get a Samsung 840 Pro, but if you need an SSD this is a good deal. Regardless if its TLC or MLC.
