Now $199 @ Amazon, the others look right. B&H is the best deal to avoid tax (unless you are in NY) and shipping.

This drive has mixed reviews on the Egg. Any one with actual experience with it?
Thanks.

What's the difference b/w this one and the mSATA?
Thanks.

mSATA version can only work in an mSATA slot, which some notebooks and a handful of motherboards have. Performance is the same as a regular SATA port and is limited to whether the mSATA slot is wired into a SATA 3Gbps (AKA SATA II) or SATA 6Gbps port in the chipset.

Basically, if you are using it in a typical desktop computer, you probably can't use mSATA.

mSATA is very useful for really tiny boxes based on thin-mITX boards like the Intel DH61AG but also eliminates a 2.5" box in other applications.
