Hopefully this is just a case of pre-release pricing variance, because while I'll buy Bao's "noticeable amount", this isn't what I'd call "knocking socks off", Linus.

Newegg.ca - OCZ Vertex 2 OCZSSD3-2VTX120G 3.5" 120GB SATA II MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Newegg.ca - OCZ Agility 2 OCZSSD2-2AGTE120G 2.5" 120GB SATA II MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Also by way of perspective, I just grabbed a 120GB Vertex for $199 last week, no MIR involved. Yes, it can be argued that the Sandforce is a stronger controller, but the Barefoot is far from being a slouch. And since I'm still running Vista, I was looking for more robust firmware garbage collection.
