This morning an item at the top of the Newegg weekend email blast caught my eye. Several months ago I talked about larger capacity drives showing up at 50c per GB and how this would quickly become normal for SSD pricing. At the time I didn't think about what impact this would have on sale prices. If SSDs make it to 50 cents per gigabyte then what will happen when they go on sale?
Today we found out! Stuffed with 256GB of NAND flash, the Seagate 600 240GB hit a record low price today of $119.99. While not significantly lower than 50 cents per GB, it still crosses over that line.
