The Intel 330 is a nice drive and it is reliable, but it's typically more expensive than the Samsung, and they're very similar in every respect as far as the average user is concerned. --- -What is best in life? -To crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentation of the women.

Gah, I'm torn.
I'm looking to get a SSD for my computer and Tiger Direct currently has the Intel 330 180GB SSD for $89.99 after rebate. It's a great deal to be sure. But with Samsung trying to get rid of their 830's I'm hoping for a real cheap 256GB 830 SSD around Black Friday/Cyber Monday.
I'm not really sure what to do. LOL --- "I gotta be really careful while shadowboxing though because if I do it enough eventually I'll just defeat the air and then everyone will suffocate."

I'd say wait for cyber monday, maybe the 330 will drop lower than the 830.
