32GB OCZ Core SATA II SSD $99 after Rebate
SSDs dip below $100

It's been quite some time since DailyTech has posted a Daily Hot Deals post, but this particular deal is simply too mind-blowing to pass over. Newegg currently has the recently released 32GB OCZ Core Series SATA II SSD for $159 -- MWAVE also lists the drive for the same price. There is also a $60 manufacturer's rebate which drops the price down to $99 -- this is a new low for high-speed solid state drives.

The 32GB Core Series SSD has write speeds of 83MB/sec and read speeds of 120MB/sec.

There have been some concerns raised about the performance issues of OCZ's MLC-based Core Series SSDs in recent tests, but the sub-$100 price tag may just be low enough to get some users to at least give the burgeoning technology a try.

Be ok? probably.
Be worth it? Don't waste your money.

The largest favorable reason to switch to ssd in terms of performance is the lack of a mechanically limited seek time.

The jmicron controller they used basically makes it slower than a hard drive.
I remember seeing a review on these and the ssd took 4x longer for a random write test. Its sad really, I was so hyped up on buying this exact drive but now I have 0 interest.
