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. | Report abuse shyheim April 28, 2010 1:36:07 PM They are all over the net right now for like $80 off | Report abuse sub mesa April 28, 2010 1:44:25 PM X25-M 80GB is about $220; you're saying you can get this for $160 now? In what continent are you comparing prices?
