Hmm - would have thought a RYF on our M500 SSD deals
Posted by: OWC Larry
Date: December 19, 2014 01:48AM
960GB had been $329.00 - still really good at $339.00
120GB at $54
240GB and 480GB good prices too.

Not aware of lower on the 960s - that is for sure. Hmmm smiling smiley

Sorry, I saw this deal and was going to post but I had something urgent come up. I hang my head in shame.

Sent the OWC page to Number Two Son Nathan, who's been complaining that his 13" MBP is slow. I think it's because he uses Google Docs, but what do I know?

Sweet! I had missed this.

We are about to order one for work - was going to get an OWC brand, but we will probably get one of these instead from OWC!

Those are really good prices, but I just bought a M500 a few weeks ago from a competitor. I wish I had waited to make the purchase. It's going to go in a 2012 Mac Mini that is a Christmas present to my wife.

I gotta figure out where you all seeing the deals out there - as this one started last Friday... was patiently watching home base. smiling smiley

Units been flying out - and thought had good coverage... but where did it need to appear to be caught readers here? (and thus elsewhere)

Either those prices need to be picked up when someone does a search In Google Shopping or it needs to be posted during the middle of the day on Skickdeals (in the Hot Deals forum). :-)

Slickdeals. Did you see my question about Crucial vs Samsung (vs OWC)? At home or work I'd just buy bigger than I need, but for some computers I've been buying for a church, I'm thinking of going just a bit bigger than they need.

Compared to the OWC - both Crucial and Samsung suffer slow downs that our drives do not... The Samsungs also start getting a little wacky - seen first hand and not isolated- once more than 75% of the drive is consumed. We go to 99.9% with steady performance - slow down only when space for memory swap shot if it's the boot drive (which is the same on all drives SSD or HDD - OS thing at that point).

Thanks for the deal hunter help... we want to be found where you find the deals... partly why laid back after these M500s went up. They are flying out the door and predict gone by year's end of close to. smiling smiley

M500 SSD deals

Maybe this is why?






I am that Masked Man.

Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

I've been to the edge of the map, and there be monsters.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody counts or nobody counts.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

I was very tempted to soup up an old MacBook Air but instead opted for new. Will certainly keep your drives in mind for later.
