Deal Alert: Crucial 256GB SSD for $179.99 after $32 Rebate
Got an email yesterday that Crucial has a 256 gigabyte (GB) Solid State Drive (SSD) on sale for $179.99 after a $32 rebate TODAY ONLY, August 24th. The drive is normally about $199 on Crucial’s website. Why should you upgrade to a solid state drive? A couple of reasons:
- No moving parts involved means the disk is largely shock resistant.
- 2.5″ form-factor means you can upgrade your laptop hard drive.
- Solid State Drives have a faster boot time, sometimes loading Windows or OS X in about 10 seconds on newer computers.
- Improved performance time accessing files.
- Less lag time playing video games installed on the SSD.
- Put less performance-critical files on your old hard drive in a USB external enclosure.
- Storage / cost ratio is coming down quickly.
- Revive an older computer with a hard drive upgrade to SSD!
