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.

Why does DailyTech even post this?

I'm all for posting really hot deals. That said, Anand detailed the problems of these drives and showed them to be so damning that there is little reason to even consider them. I mean, I'm sure we could find some great deals on defective GPUs and CPUs as well, but we wouldn't really think them post-worthy if the defects make the products unusable.

Becuse many of the bloggers are, how you say, 'tools'.
