I bought the C300 64GB couple weeks ago for $159cdn. LOVE it. same read speeds as the 128GB and 256GB versions, but write speeds max out at 78MB/s due to the lower density NAND chips used. For what the drive was bought for, it's a non-issue. My Caviar Green 1TB tops out @ ~100MB/s. Put up against the Caviar Black it looks a little worse (~145MB/s seq), but the read is where its at!

HWC is the best!
