Deal: Kingston SSDNow V+ 96GB $98.95 Free Shipping

Buy.com is at it again with a great offer on the 96GB SSD from Kingston’s SSDNow V+ line. The usual Buy.com (and Amazon.com) price for this unit is about $145, and this drive has never been sold for less than $100.

Valid through 06-04-2011. To take advantage of the added discount you have to fill out a mail-in rebate form (I don’t know why they insist on this, but in this case it’s worth the trouble). The Kingston V+ is a solid middle-of-the-road SSD with maximum read/write performance of 230MB/s (read) and 180MB/s and you will have a hard time finding an equivalent drive at this price point.

  1. “I don’t know why they insist on this, but in this case it’s worth the trouble”
    1. To achieve the actual average actual price somewhere in the range of 98.95 – 145 $, but NEVER 98.95 $ (ok, i don’t consider some “options” like each of the customer manage to successfully use the rebate, but the end price for that customer would be greater than 98.95$ due to additional expenses for mailing, transport etc).
    2. To attract the customers with (potentially) low price, that is if they don’t fail to go through all the “rebate” procedure.
    3. To improve their reports about the total value of such products sold.

  2. OK, that clarifies things 🙂
