Corsair said Friday that--for a limited time only--its 32GB Nova Series SSD will cost $69.99 after a mail-in rebate. As the Newegg listing shows, the drive originally had a MSRP pricetag of $99.99, but received a ten dollar discount through the online retailer. With an additional $20 mail-in rebate thrown into the mix, consumers ultimately save thirty bucks on this high-performance SSD. Not too shabby.
"The 32GB Nova Series SSD is great for streamlined boot drives, netbook upgrades, and even RAID configurations," stated Jim Carlton, VP of Marketing at Corsair. "The aggressive pricing of these drives makes the benefits of SSDs accessible to everyone."
On the hardware side, the drive offers sequential access read speeds of up to 195 MB/s and sequential access write speeds of up to 70 MB/s. Other highlights include a 2.5-inch form factor (although an included bracket will snap it into a 3.5-inch desktop bay), TRIM support, built-in 64 MB of SDRAM cache, background garbage collection, and an SATA II interface.
The 32GB SSD comes with a three year warranty that's backed by Corsair's customer service and technical support.
