Anyone looking to catch the steal deals in things like SSD's might want to set themselves up for alerts sent to you over at Slickdeals.

For those who don't know, the site is basically a board for netsurfers looking for and reporting sales of stuff.

That is where I heard about the Egg sale that got me an OCZ Agility 2 120 for $139.

There is a Kingston 128 SSD at Buy.com for the same price right now.

The price is good but just remember the V stands for value. That usually means it is a low budget entry model with some features missing. For example, this model does not support firmware updates. In addition, it does not support Windows TRIM which hleps with garbage collection. It uses an older controller which originally caused stuttering but it appears to have been fixed.
