Lol; yeah me to realneil, they are sold out on Newegg except for the most expensive one or they were earlier today. I am glad though as the price seems to be dropping, and most of the other big boys are still in stock across the board. I have a feeling black Friday this year is going to be nice (well if ya want a SSD anyway) if ya get my drift. Where we are now in the market year is right in the middle, so the next round from everyone should be out in a month or so, then fall round, then the Christmas market starts rolling with Black Friday sales. One of those second or even a few first round sata2 SSD's might be in some stockings. They may not be quite as fast, but times 2 or 3 in raid might help a bit :)

I hope rapid is right in that SSDs will be a big deal for Black Friday sales. Maybe then I'll be able to get my hands on one.
