    Really, the SSD manufacturers shoot themselves in the foot, for not having this as their regular price for this capacity. I mean, when you see a 120GB SSD selling for ~$80, and a 64GB (half the capacity) SSD selling for ~$60, it's really telling you that the controller and case is the bulk of the worth of that SSD, and the memory is then cheap. So why, then, is the 240GB (and larger) SSD's usually selling for twice as much as the 120GB model??

    My price point on flash memory is ~50 cents per GB, so I'm really not that willing to go much higher for an SSD. Call me spoiled or unrealistic, but so long as the consumers are willing to pay more for the product, the companies will be more than happy to make the extra profit off of them.

    ^ That Newegg is offering this as a sale price tells you that given a high volume seller, it is the seller as much as the manufacturer that dictates that last ~30% price fluctuation.
