Rather pathetic pricing if you ask me. The enthusiast community was lead to believe that Intel would substantially be dropping the prices of their SSDs when they moved to 25nm,

Question Not to sound like a smart-ass, but what do you consider a "substantial" price drop?

Not to sound like a smart-ass, but what do you consider a "substantial" price drop? At the moment you would pay approximately $239 for a 34nm, 120 GB SSD, where as with the new 25nm you pay $239 for a 160 GB. So 40 more GBs at approximetly the same price, plus I am sure in 3 to 6 months (or so) you'll be able to get one for 199.99 CAD - unless there is a tsunami and an earth quake in Taiwan .

The price that annoys me the most is the 40gb. $109 MSRP for a 25nm when I can get a 34nm one for $79.99 fairly easily, plus it comes with Shogun2. Not to mention I'm guaranteed not to have the potential 25nm issues that OCZ had.

That is an awsome deal. I ended up getting Corsair's F115 a couple of weeks ago on sale for 199 CAD - so far no issues. OCZ is not going to get my money if they keep treating their customers like idiots.

$239 is the price of the 120GB Intel 320. Which is more than what you can buy a 120GB X25-M for now.
