    Neither this nor the Sweepstakes actually mentions when in February the contest will end, they just say, "February, 2014 9:00 PM PST"

    This is a refurbished drive, right? I mean, all OCZ drives eventually end up as refurbished, anyway.

    it would be nice if for once toms did a worldwide contest :(

    As much as I like free stuff, I really wish Tom's would stop supporting these blatant attempts to gather people's personal information.

    Heres hoping for a win!Could replace my 2 240GB drives with this one... then put my old 240GB drives in my netbook and wife's PC... then my wife's old 120GB could be used to cache my NAD HDDs or something... life would be beautiful!

    OCZ ? Thanks, but no thanks.

    While the form states the Feb 14th date, the 'Official Rules' do not specify a date other that February, 2014. Therefore, a case could potentially be made that the contest is not over on the 14th, and the name drawn is not valid
