The price rate have been steady for a long time. The only price change was when X25-M got upgraded from 55nm NAND flash to 34nm NAND flash; leading to cheaper SSDs of the same capacity.

Where the older X25-M had chips on both sides; the newer one has them only on one side. So half the chips leads to lower pricing. But after that it got steady.

X25-M 80GB is about $220; you're saying you can get this for $160 now? In what continent are you comparing prices? In my locale it is still the same price as last month or one year ago; price is set it stone it seems. :)
