The fact that Crucial would be a leader in competitive SSD pricing has been front and center for quite some time now.
In fact, only a few days ago we posted what we thought to be a great deal on the Crucial M4 128GB SSD as it broke the $1/GB barrier and seemed to be a sign of things to come.
Well it seems that Crucial has done it again and I would bet that this might make more than a few manufacturers a bit uneasy right about now.
Crucial/Micron makes no secret of the fact that they ‘Own the Fab’ which, as Wayne Eisenberg had predicted in an earlier report, puts them in a very unique position with so few other NAND flash memory manufacturers to literally control market pricing of SSDs.
This morning at Amazon.Com the Crucial M4 256GB SSD hit an all time low of $199.99 which now brings the bar of SSD pricing to a low 78 cents a gigabyte. Check this link out and grab one before their gone!!!
The added benefit of this purchase, of course, is that the M4 contains the Marvell controller which has shown itself to be not only one of the top performing on the market, but also, it has shaken the concern of reliability that we see in so many new release SSD scenarios.
This SSD is as solid as they come!
