Horrible, horrible shoes!

Will we see much SSD news or product launches at CES? I searched and could only see info about two drives being launched from manufacturers I'd never heard of.

256 gig samsung 830 is $299 as well. The way they've been dropping cheap SSDs makes me think the Intel SSDs are going to go on sale any day now

The successor to the 320 is being released on the 13th of this month, with reportedly almost double the performance.

SSD vendors set to trigger price war to force out smaller peers

Major SSD firms have initiated price reductions to reflect falling prices for NAND flash chips. The move is also aimed at triggering a price war in the market in an attempt to squeeze out smaller peers, according to industry sources in Taiwan.

This looks like excellent news for us, if it's credible.

They're pretty good boards, they just have a dumb color scheme... much like Thermalright products.

I really want one of those, assuming that's a Z77

I agree that the camo idea is pretty dumb, but I like the muted colors. It's better than the bright blue that seems geared towards case windows and LEDs.

The Intel 330 180GB is $140 after rebate on newegg. That's $110 off the regular price and $10 less than the 120GB version.

Wow, this is an amazing deal. It's a shame they don't do international shipping or I'd buy one in an instant.

The 330 has been added to the Anandtech SSD bench recently if anyone wants to see how it measures up.

Amazon Germany has the 256 GB Samsung 830 Desktop Upgrade Kit on sale for 179,90 Euro (0,7 Euro/GB!):

http://www.amazon.de/Samsung-MZ-7PC...37883553&sr=8-2

They also ship to other European countries.

I ordered one but I got charged 185.95 before shipping. Not sure where the extra charge came from; I emailed them to find out.

Still a great deal regardless, thanks for posting it.

edit: Figured out that Germany have a lower VAT rate.
