Default $130 for 240GB Vertex 2 fair?

Used it for ~1 year. I see some newer 240GB drives for $180 and the top end 240GB drives are over $210 on sale. Agility 3 240GB can be found on sale for $170. $40 off that price enough to justify used + older model?

at $130 should sell in descent time during any other time of the year, but u got to factor in that a lot of people are just waiting for the boxing day sales to come up, and which by then, you'll have the highend ssds selling at black friday like deals when they were priced at $149. So if you dont sell your ssd by then, its going to be very hard to get $130, so if you want to sell it within the next couple of weeks id say go for $100-$125, that extra $5 really does make people think twice about whether or not to buy it vs buying new.

and yeah price =shipped

I also would say your better around $100-$120, these drives are dropping price fast. Also again like mentioned above there are going to be tons of sales in a little over a week!

Many people including myself are holding out for those as well as looking on sites like this for people that upgrade over holidays and want to recoop some money :)

GL with your sale though!

I bought my last Chronos Deluxe 240GB (think Vertex 3 MAX IOPS) for ~$170. no more than $100 for your Vertex 2 240GB IMHO

Okay, I won't be selling until after the break as I'm leaving for holidays for 2 weeks. Will keep an eye on the sales over the holiday to get a good feel for what price it should be at.

Unfortunately, the V2 is two gens out of date now (actually more like 3 now with the vector out in the wilds). $100 is pushing it.

GL with your sale though :)
