My alerts pinged me on this drive this morning.

Micron 5100 ECO SSD

According to storage review, it's not great, but it should make an excellent steam drive.


Seller accepted my $205 offer.

Damn, what a deal, why the hell am i not US resident?
You can use Shipito.com to have packages sent overseas. I've recently had 8x of these exact model drives sent to Europe without issues.

It's a good deal, but I'm not 100% sure if they will accept generic Micron firmware (being Cisco branded and all). There have been a number of updates since the shipping firmware.

As of my post, there appears to be 15 left.

@cw283 : I am interested. what do you have in mind ? Ebay shipping program is a pain as it takes more time and always include customs taxes.
I am interested by a couple of those drives.
