Free Far Cry 3 with SSD Offer

Samsung announces that customers who purchase one of their 250 GB 840-series SSDs between Black Friday and Cyber Monday will get a downloadable copy of Far Cry 3 as a bonus:

Samsung Electronics America, Inc., a market leader and award-winning innovator in consumer electronics, announced today that for a limited time over this Black Friday weekend, its new 250 gigabyte (GB) SSD 840 solid-state drives will be available at a special discounted price and will include a download of the new “Far Cry® 3” video game from Ubisoft Entertainment at no additional cost.

“This limited time Black Friday offer allows consumers to dramatically increase their PC’s performance at an unbeatable price” From Black Friday through Cyber Monday (11/22 – 11/26), or while supplies last, consumers will be able to purchase the 250 GB version of Samsung’s SSD 840 drive for just $169.99, $20 less than the usual minimum advertised price. They also will receive a code enabling them to download the full PC version of “Far Cry 3,” normally priced at $59.99.

A deal like this screams 'less than stellar product'

jumping in blindly to a new SSD no matter how well received the manufacturer's past drives are is not very smart, unless you fully recognize the risks of being an early adopter.
I'm at a loss. What are the risks exactly?

I was thinking of gettin a 120gb SSD just to run my Windows off of.

Well, there's a pretty good risk of the drive just crapping out on you, leaving you without your data. The triple cell drives so far have not been reliable, so I'd just stick with a Sandforce 2 SATA3 drive for now.

But putting your Windows partition on an SSD will be an eye-opener for you. You won't believe how slow your old hard disk was.
