Anyone know why PCCG stopped stocking Patriot SSDs?

They are pretty sparse in aus shops now


No idea. They have been very good maybe they are just having supply issues.

I know for a fact they were up on the site yesterday but only he Pyro versions.

Ah well, I'm screwing around with reasons not to buy SSD atm and to be honest, I'd like a new revision SLC (Single Level Cell) SSD.

PCCG just dropped their Intel 520 price, on at least the 120Gb version Coincidentally (likely not) on the day Scorptech offer their deal on the same drive. PCCG was $239 for the 120, Scorptech has a deal now for $215 PCCG is $215 now too :) Good time to be a consumer!

Yeah they're pretty reliable, just wondering if the special really ends tomorrow. Either way it's a great price anyway. Lowest I've ever seen the M4 go with shipping is $206 on a very short Amazon sale.

Holy crapola! Ends up being $191 delivered if you include 2 year insurance (probably a smart idea for an SSD).

The 240GB Intel 520 is $80AUD cheaper here in Norway now. Pretty much all the Intel SSDs have dropped by a large margin over the last few weeks. There was a press release a few weeks ago saying it was going to happen to help Intel compete with the new Samsung drives and stay a viable choice in the market.
