Update: Apparently, the sale was only valid for one day (November 16th), meaning that the coupon code no longer works.

Newegg is having a sale and they are giving a 15% discount on any OCZ SSD with the coupon code "BLKNOVSSD". Below are a few SSDs listed with their new prices.

Model Capacity Original Price 15% Off Mail-in Rebate Final Price
Vertex 3 60GB $109 $93 -$20 $73
120GB $190 $162 -$20 $142
240GB $475 $404 -$30 $374
Agility 3 60GB $107 $91 -$20 $71
120GB $171 $145 -$20 $125
240GB $360 $306 -$30 $276

Good chance to grab a Christmas present (yes, you can buy presents for yourself too) at a nice discount. Unfortunately, we don't know how long this promotion will last.

    But that'll never happen since sales/business taxes are paid on the preMIR price. Reply

    Darn the luck. I ordered 3 OCZ Agility 3 120GB drives last week.

    I completed my first build with one of the Agility 3's yesterday and have had zero problems so far. The speed of these drives rock.

    I also own a 3.5" Vertex II 60 GB, two Agility 60GBs and an original Vertex 60GB. I have never had a problem with any of these drives (fingers crossed with the other 2 Agility 3's.) I'll stick with OCZ until they make me a believer in all this negativity in the comments I've been reading. So far, I'm as happy as can be and the performance is top notch.

    My only tip with the Agility 3 is to make sure you set the controller to AHCI in the BIOS right from the get go. Then once you have everything loaded, run WEI so Win7 turns on the SSD settings. I dunno, maybe I'm just lucky with the drives. /shrug

    I wish I was lucky with the timing on the purchase lol

    When your current SSDs go tits-up, maybe the next gen will be on sale in Jan. '12. Reply

    All hard drives prices have gone up on Newegg.com and a few other sites I've been checking. This 15% off is likely still more expensive than the drive was a month ago.

    OCZ 120GB Vertex Plus was $119, now it is $144. Seagate Hybrid 500GB was $99, now is $159.
