I'd hardly call it a "really good deal" its about the same price that they go for everywhere I've seen them. Just picked one up two weeks ago not on sale for $160 free ship from Newegg.

I will say that its great the prices on these are coming down as a whole though, or at least looking less bad since mechanical HDDs went up from the Thai flooding.

I put the 256GB M4 in my notebook a few days ago and it's blazing fast. Just make sure that it's on the latest (309) firmware or that you upgrade to the latest ASAP. The 256 that I got from Amazon last week already had the latest. Launching Word is for all intents and purposes instantaneous. The M4s are a bit more expensive than some others but Micron makes the chips used many brands of SSDs and supposedly the pick of the litter go into their own.

Here is a pretty in depth review.

Just went back up to $168.99. Shame I didn't just order it when I had the chance.

@dertintenfisch: Make sure amazon.com is the seller to get the $150 price.

@boarder2k7 I'd say it's a pretty good deal considering the same one is $199 not on sale at newegg.

But yeah, it's sweet that these are finally dropping in price!
