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.

But I guess it's possible others haven't been so fortunate. I just like the SF2's because they are SO.INSANELY.FAST.

Sandforce drives had major issues the past two years, it's been well documented on review websites and forums from a massive sampling size. OCZ stuff was especially bad since OCZ uses the low rated nand and their firmware had absurd QA issues. The speed difference in SF drives is miniscule from drives with more stable controllers and firmware, not even noticeable in real world performance unless you use RAID0 for video encoding or something.

Now that the dust has settled they might be a good purchase but as others said a lot of people aren't going to forget that easily when there are alternatives with a minor speed difference at best. The Samsung 830 or Crucial M4 are better buys IMHO, the 830 is even faster in many benchmarks.

Anyways I'm waiting for the 512GB drives to come down a bit more before I swap out
