    Got one from Amazon. Definitely the best SSD deal at the moment.

    I was JUST pricing HDD's, and then saw THIS post. I might be making the SSD move.

    SG sells SSDs? So Samsung decided to not brand all their SSDs as Samsung drives?

    Actually, they using Toshiba
    It uses Toshiba NAND and a LAMD controller. Definitely not a Samsung rebrand.

    My thought was based on the fact that Samsung owns SG.
    Thanks for the info, though. :)

    Wow, great SSD Deal!

    ^^ Samsung doesn't own Seagate.. You may be confusing Seagate's acquisition of Samsung's HDD Business back in 2011.
