"Well, the Sata II V100's seem to always pop up with great deals in NewEgg, so this is great that the V200 which are Sata III are going to be 20% cheaper and substantially faster than its predecessor , its very appreciative for the consumer."
I agree...Kingston's predecessor has great read/ writes and were just on sale here in Canada (memoryexpress.com) for just under $180 CAD for their 128GB.

With the high prices of hard drives now it's worth investing in an SSD.
I agree but everyone making SSD's seems to either be dropping new drives or new versions of existing drive series and even new new Sata3 ones most of the big players are on series 3 of sata3 drives alone if not past that.
Looks like it may still be a little while before the prices for HDDs actually return to previous pricing .Looks like these newer more affordable Kinston drives will fit the bill and most appreciated for the increased performance.
