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.

Ocz must be pissed at that article, thats a 50% drop in price right after it was posted the other day.


I wanted to start off by identifying myself as an OCZ employee...I'm a bit late here, but just wanted to clarify.

If you notice the dates of the rebates on Newegg.com, you will see they began 9/3 (5 days before the AT review).

We did not change pricing after the review and have been offering aggressive pricing on the drives from day 1 due to their mainstream performance.

We are currently developing enthusiast-grade MLC-based SSDs.
