OCZs 64GB Core Series SSD now rings up at $99 after rebate

In what must a record for price meltdowns on brand new technology, OCZ's Core Series SSDs have taken yet another nose dive in pricing.

Last week, DailyTech reported that the 32GB OCZ Core SSD dropped down to an unheard of $99 after a $60 mail-in rebate. This week, it looks as though it's the 64GB version's turn to take a price cut.

Newegg is now listing the 64GB Core Series SSD at $99 after a $70 mail-in rebate. In roughly a week, the customers can now get twice the space at the same price -- that's quite incredible considering the drives retailed for $259 when they were introduced just over two months ago.

The price cuts, however, come shortly after an AnandTech review criticized the drives for poor performance. From the AnandTech review:

As I've mentioned before, the random write issues with JMicron JMF602 based MLC SSDs are simply unacceptable and in my opinion they make the drives unusable for use in any desktop or notebook that you actually care about. Next year we may see a JMicron controller that fixes the problem but until then, I'd consider those drives off limits.

Although it's unknown which controller the new Super Talent MasterDrive OX SSDs are using, they are ringing up at $149, $259, and $419 for 32GB, 64GB, and 128GB models respectively for comparison.
