Getting there S-F. The two SanDisk deals are both no rebate, no gift card and were lower cost.

ADORAMA is OOS and price is back to $210+ there. Amazon raised prices again to $171 on the Sandisk Extreme 240gb.

Yep you can't dilly dally on these 1-day deals. Once the unwashed masses and walmart tramplers at slickdeals & friends get a whiff, the deal is usually quickly dead.

On the bright side expect more of these deals as channels are being bled for new gen drives.

Patrick, is that 8 drive array for speed, storage space or both? I've honestly been wondering for quite some time now if RAID SSD's actually produce a noticeable performance increase/ Last I tried was around the time OCZ launched the Vertex. I put three of their disks in RAID 0 on a 1210 and noticed little performance improvement over a single disk. Of course installing software was faster. Not much else though.
