    Actually big guy they are less than a $1.00 per GB. The SanDisk Extreme I bought back around the first of December cost me $164.95 at 240 GB thus that is give or take approximately .68 cent a GB. Not to bad. The Samsung that I mentioned in an earlier post was 500 GB going for $299.95 or .59 cent a GB. Hence, it would appear on average they are know below that $1.00 a GB.

    Yeah right, the Sundisks are always on sale for a low price. Today on Newegg they have a 128GB for $99.99. I wonder what's wrong with them - maybe nothing. I also have a Mushkin which comes usually at a lower price. And that is pretty good and very fast. But it is still too early to tell because I have only used it for 3 months whilst my oldest OCZ and Intel have been in use since 4 years.

    But regarding the $1/GB I was talking about the makes I have in use like OCZ, Samsung, Intel or Crucial. All those work well.
