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.

Geeks.com has a MLC Transcend 32GB SSD at 97.99 (no rebate) and they state in big letters in their ad:
"This is a Multi-Level Cell SSD and therefore is not recommended for OS installation"

see: http://www.geeks.com/details_test.asp?Invtid=TS32G...

I may be inclinded to pop it into an external case and use it as an external drive (like a really big flash drive) but not pop it into a laptop.
