Two SSD Deals: Kingston V 128GB for $125 and OCZ Vertex2 80GB for $130
If you’ve been itching to get a solid state drive for your MacBook Pro, here’s a couple good deals from Buy.com on two such drives. The first is a Kingston 128GB SSD for $125, and the other is an OCZ 80GB SSD for $130, both are 2.5″ so they’ll fit into any MacBook or MacBook Pro.
- Kingston 128GB SSDNow V Series SATA II SSD for $124.95 – includes free shipping from Buy.com – (Mail-in rebate PDF)
- OCZ Technology Vertex 2 80GB 2.5 in. SATA II SSD for $129.95 – includes free shipping from Buy.com – (Mail-in rebate PDF)
Both of these drives come highly rated, so other than the price and storage capacity you’re probably wondering what the difference is between the two. From what I’ve read, the OCZ Vertex drive comes in a bit faster than the Kingston drive.
The deals are valid through 02-20-2011, remember that to get the final price you’ll need to send in the simple mail-in rebate form.
Will these work in a mid-2007 Mac Mini?
Anyone who has swapped out their standard HD for a SSD in a MacBook Pro…. how was the experience?
Was it smooth? Was the data transfer easy? I’ve heard stories that there can be problems switching to SSD.
Seems like a pretty good deal. I will have to look into this and see if it will meet all of the needs that I have.
Warning(!). It is much better to buy a SSD Intel X-25 Postville. It supports TRIM nativly with internal microcontrollers. Greets.
