It's getting harder and harder to say no to solid state drives, with prices dropping well into the affordable range over the past few months. Buying from the US usually provides the best deal, but if you're keen to purchase locally, today is your day. Shopping Square is currently running a massive sale on Kingston and Sandisk SSDs, with the cheapest going for less than $50.
Here's a round-up of the drives on offer, including their current price and saving off the RRP:
- Intel 120GB — $108.95 (45 per cent off)
- Kingston 60GB — 48.95 (69 per cent off)
- Kingston 120GB — $79.95 (60 per cent off)
- Kingston 240GB — $184.95 (54 per cent off)
- Sandisk 240GB — $179.95 (11 per cent off)
Note that each drive you purchase beyond the first will receive a 50 per cent shipping discount (shipping is $9.99 to anywhere in Australia).
The sale is on for another five days, but I imagine most of the drives will sell out before then — the 120GB and 480GB Sandisks are already unavailable, though they're described as "Coming Soon", which suggests more stock might be on its way.
UPDATE - 1:55PM: Looks like the 60GB drives are sold out! That didn't take long.
