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!
This is one hell of an SSD. The 256 GB version just sweetens this deal even more! Go Crucial Go!
jesus thats about the best deal going right now, that is a SWEET drive 🙂
Now Intel needs to jump on the band wagon as well since they also ‘own the fab’.
Isn’t the M4 an async NAND model? The OCZ Vertex 3 sync NAND units are at rock bottom pricing now as well. Price is about $20 more for the 256Gb.
M4 is syncronous….
