Sweet deal on ST FEM32GFDL and 2GB RAM... $92 shipped! - 07-07-2009, 08:25 AM
I hope this is kosher here... obviously I'm new. I was about to jump on the regular (old) Super Talent 32GB for my Mini 9 when I had a bout of indecision since some reviews said it was slow, googled for Super Talent versus Runcore, and ran across this forum and news of the newer, faster Super Talent SSDs. I just wanted to let everyone know that is interested in one of these SSDs, that I think I got a pretty sweet deal and it should be available until Thursday. I discovered all this through here except the coupon code, and thought I'd repay you guys with the tip towards the deal.
I went to SuperBiiz (also discovered through this forum) and saw a bundle listed on the FEM32GFDL page for the SSD and 2GB ST PC6400 stick for like $3 more than the SSD alone, free shipping. I used Liveāerr, i mean Bing Cashback for a theoretical $6.60 savings (it's pending in my account), and SuperBiiz/eWiz 4th of July coupon code FIREWORKS15 (should be good through 7/9) for $15 off my $100+ order.
All in, that nets me both the new faster SSD and RAM upgrade for just under $92 shipped... less than $3 more than I was about to drop at Newegg for the old SSD alone.
Should get here by this weekend, so hopefully then I'll get some time to start the hackintosh project I intended when I bought the 9 a while back, and I'll definitely be around for more information on that end of things when I get to that point.
P.S. If Super Talent RAM isn't that great (I did not research it, just jumped on the deal) they have a Kingston ValueRam combo for just a little more, no HyperX that I saw though. If the ST RAM is a letdown, well, it was basically free anyway. And if you've already got the RAM, $89ish shipped for the SSD also seems like a sweet deal.
