WYF (walk you fools) Samsung 250 GB SSD $130
Posted by: pdq
Date: October 22, 2013 11:22AM
Shortly after I got my i7 Mini last year, I switched out the standard hard drive for a Samsung 250 GB 840 series SSD and have been happy with the speed, but I knew that I could fit a second identical SSD in this Mini, stripe it, and get >1000MB/sec read/write performance.

What do I need that for? I dunno. But I knew it was out there, beckoning me.

Anyway, in an idle moment today, I searched and found that this drive is now going for around $160 with free shipping at B+H, eBay, etc...but for $130 with free shipping at "Hugo Beauty":

[hugobeauty.com]

"Hugo Beauty" (?!?)

I'm skeptical, but the payment is through Paypal, so if there's a problem, I should be covered. Anyway, not the greatest drive ever, but has worked pretty well for me in the Mini, and I couldn't resist trying the dual-SSD RAID option.

Now I've gotta pick up one of those dual-drive kits, and some weekend soon, if all goes well, I'll post the results.
