    https://www.ebay.com/itm/Toshiba-OC...-3D-BiCS-FLASH-Internal-Solid-S-/302503101741

    I think that the ebay coupon expired, but Newegg on ebay has the Toshiba TR200 for $53.99 FS
    for the 240GB capacity.

    I've already snagged two of these, at decent price-points, but this is the cheapest that I've seen it for.

    It should be noted, that this drive does have a Toshiba warranty which is pretty decent, but I'm pretty sure I read that this is a DRAM-less drive, so it should be "cheaper".

    WD 500GB blue (5 year warranty) ssd has a recent price drop to $109 @ newegg and amazon among other places. It is not a bad price for a reliable ssd but I suspect we will see deeper drops in the future.

    Be sure to check the reviews on this drive and see if they are relevant to yourself.

    newegg is selling 1tb 860 for 229 if you are signed up to receive emailing - else it is 239. Btw a lot of places are selling it for $239 if you prefer a different vendor.

    That's cheap... for an Intel drive! (They are usually 25% more expensive than the cheapest drives, those 5-year warranties aren't super-cheap.)

    I would pick up the customer qty. limit, if I had the funds. Then again, I've kind of sworn off any drives smaller than 250GB, so there's that. If they had the 256GB model for $49.99, I'd definitely go for that.
