It seems a lot of companies are coming out with smaller capacity and maybe cheaper SF SSDs at the moment, are they trying to clear the shelves before the 500MB/sec SATA 6Gbps drives arrive in the next month or two maybe? Here's hoping that is the case and the new drives will sell for the same or lower price for the size! :)
