    Try it again, I just ordered a couple of them.

    Thanks by the way. These are great drives - especially for $40.

    They're 9.5 mm drives with a removable 2.5 mm spacer - given that you have the shorter screws to secure the now shorter drives (you can always use tape...)

    Theorectically removing the spacer voids your warranty. I personally think that's bunk on Intel's part, but them's the breaks. Hasn't stopped me from taking the spacer off and dumping it into my laptop (well, the 320 version anyways; I had an X25-M 80GB in my desktop for the longest time).

    I put it in my cart and backed out last minute. Two reasons why
    I hate rebates
    I want a $80 128GB black Friday deal on a Sammy 830 or Vertex 4 :eek:

    8:37 Pacific coast time - just checked and I'm still able to add to cart and proceed to checkout.

    T.D. states that there is a 1 item only rebate, but the actual rebate paperwork states 2 rebates per person.
