Specifications, Pricing and Availability
OCZ's specifications are a little outdated as later firmware increased the performance of the Limited Edition SF-1200 controlled drive. In our review of the LE we discovered the same 285MB/s read and 275MB/s write speed associated with many enthusiast SF-1200 drives.
The big news for today is the current price, so let's jump right in. My Digital Discount, the sponsor of this article has uncovered a few cases of new Vertex LE drives. We managed to talk MDD into selling 100 240GB drives for 250 Dollars. The 240GB LE has 256GB of 34nm NAND flash, so for the first time we're able to talk about a SSD that beats the $1 per GB magic number. To date this is the first time I've seen a drive, new, used or on clearance that beats this claim.
The My Digital Discount supply is made up of new drives, not refurbished or recertified or whatever discount brokers are calling their B-stock products these days. In order to get the deal you need a coupon code, TT30OFF240LE. The price reduction will be made during the check out process, so there isn't a mail-in rebate.
Let's look at what you get.
