Intel Philippines just sent in word that they are slashing down the prices of their SSD storage units this Christmas. They’re still relatively expensive but nice to know the prices are going down.
We’ve tried on of the smaller drives from Intel before, the 40GB Intel X25-V SATA SSD and results were pretty impressive.
The new Intel SSD prices are as follows:
Intel X25-V 40GB SATA SSD: $99 (Php5,000 in PC Express)
Intel X25-M 80GB SATA SSD: $189 (Php9,500 in PC Express)
Intel X25-M 120GB SATA SSD: $239
Intel X25-M 160GB SATA SSD: $399 (Php17,950 in PC Express)
These prices might vary a bit once they hit the local stores. So far, we’ve only seen the equivalent units at PC Express but they should go down now that Intel has slashed the prices.
