If you don't mind buying online, Canada computers has the Corsair Force 120GB on sale for $99. Sale ends today so the only way to get the deal is to go like um NOW to the website and order one, since the stores are all closed and the system will most likely change back to regular price in a few hours.

Given Newegg.com just had a great deal on them on the US site I would keep an eye on prices for the 500Gb + 4Gb SSD hybrid Seagate Momentum XT drive - decent compromise if the price is right.

Looking for SSD also but no MIR and no refurbed.

It is not worth getting irritated, it is not worth it.... Wish everyone happiness, and you yourself will be happy.

I hope there will be some deal for the Crucial M4 64GB or 128GB SSD without any MIR BS.

Tagging this thread because I'm in the market for an SSD as well.

Is this deal any good?

Depends how much money you plan to spend.

I would say no. Black Friday @ NCIX had this drive for $180 + 30 MIR

If you're set on getting it save yourself $10 by getting it from NCIX.

While SSDs remain considerably more expensive than hard drives on a per GB level, the flash-based storage devices are coming down in prices much faster than HDDs have.

According to the data released, SSD memory cost 120 times as much as HDD memory in 2007, but only 32 times as much in 2011. The average price for a HDD per GB was $0.075 in 2011, the SSD cost $2.42 per GB. The lowest per GB price for a SSD was $1.50, while HDD could be purchased for $0.053 per GB. According to Pingdom, the 2011 average price per GB for the SSD is about the same as it was for HDD in 2002. SSDs are expected to be priced at about $1 per GB sometime in the second half of next year.

Despite the rapid price decline, it is unlikely that SSDs will be matching the price level of hard drives anytime soon unless hard drive technology will hit a substantial physical barrier. That barrier has been pushed out continuously for as long as modern hard drive has existed. The most recent increase in capacities has been driven by perpendicular magnetic recording technology and it appears that heat-assisted magnetic recording could surface in 2013 or 2014 to push the limits even further. Seagate, for example, believes that heat assisted recording will increase the maximum storage density of perpendicular magnetic recording by at least 50x. [/QUOTE]
