Never buy from Newegg.

if that is the case then you better go buy from shop or online but choose local stocks.

for overseas crucial ssd we will liaise with them online and follow instructions given (most probably sending to taiwan on our own).

For local stock, you go to Convergent System at Ubi crescent for exchange.

Then I will camp for ur thread.


Pruss huan for chiu

BTW, anyone ever used the WD Green Series SSD?

Heard it's SLC, not sure is the entire drive or just the flash cache.
You should find out more about it by Googling. It's a DRAM-less SSD, and works with SLC cache. No chance at the low end will you get actual SLC NAND. Even the cheapest MLC SSD is quite pricey.

NAND already dropped quite a lot. DRAM probably still have some legroom to drop.

Many reasons. One is the short supply of Intel causing slowdown for new PC, also a decline in demand for high end mobile phones, coupled with an improve in supply in NAND is putting pressure on price.
