Does toshiba make pretty solid drives? I was pretty disappointed when that $90 840 a while back ended up being a pricing error. This isn't far off from that price after the promo so I'm definitely interested so long as it isn't junk.

The Q Series is really close in performance to the 840 Evo, even a bit better in some cases.

My only issue with the drive is that it doesn't look awesome like the Samsung drives do

The inside of my case is so well hidden you can't even see the LEDs on my fans :P so the looks aren't terribly important to me. I can always just stick it beneath my M4 if it looks so bad I feel bad for using it. Probably gonna grab this one then, thanks for the heads up.

Wow, that's a crazy good price. I haven't been checking SSD developments much recently, but is this the closest that's been available with sub $200 SSDs that offer nearly 2GB-per-dollar?

I only wish these prices affect the ones below them, but finding decent capacity SSDs for $60 to upgrade multiple machines still doesn't seem possible yet.

It's pretty much the lowest price per GB I've seen on an SSD so far

Just went ahead and ordered a second one. Might RAID them or maybe just pop it into my laptop.

This is pretty tempting. Would make for a good dual boot setup with my existing SSD.

Thanks, TC. I'm actually in the process of ordering all of my parts right now and you just saved me 30 bucks off my build.
