I don't get why the deal is so special >< It's 15$ off with free shipping. Well I guess it's a good deal, but referring to it as an "Extreme Deal" like ncix does is alittle extreme I would think.

actually I kinda want to get it now lol.

"Up to 230mbs read and 170mbs write"

That's from a media blurb, couldn't find any reviews either. I'd put it on par with the OCZ agility, decent performing, based on the new indilinx controller.

From my understanding its the same Indi controller just uses slower (and thus cheaper) NAND chips....AND it looks like no wiper.exe for them either (though that might be forthcoming as wiper is still beta and I can't see them wanting to mess with the baselines until its "finished") This makes sense and is sneaky at the same time, as consumers for the most part are just starting to hear the name Indilinx and now companies are starting to cash in on the name recognition. Also from what I have read its a 10% or more performance hit. IMHO spend the extra few for the known kit. e.g Vertex/Falcon/Torqx/etc
