The deal began appx. 8 hours ago (midnight, PDT), and it was posted on Slickdeals a half day in advance. So this special succumbed to the Slickdeals effect in very short order smile.gif

I almost bought one, but was first wanted to verify that it could be secure erased from some form of boot media, i.e. PartedMagic. I use PartedMagic to secure erase my Crucial M4 SSD and a Intel 320 SSD without issues. But I read that for the Samsung 830s, PartedMagic creates a problem during secure erase by wiping out the Samsung serial number on the SSD, that is, it sets the serial number to a string of zeros (00000000, not sure how many).

For more information, see here (PartedMagic forum post):
http://forums.partedmagic.com/viewtopic.php?t=2172

I've always wanted to try out a Samsung 830 SSD based on its good reputation, but need to have a reliable solution for secure erase before I buy. So to any 830 users out there, what do you use to secure erase your SSD? Thanks in advance.

You know, that's really unacceptable.

This wasn't a Shell Shocker deal, that was a Quick Draw deal which the email says is for 24 hours. The description of Quick Draw deals says "QUICK-DRAW DEALS will connect you twice a week to the most elusive and exclusive time-limited deals on Newegg!"

So it's "time limited." Not one word in the entire email about being quantity limited, or while supplies last, or (as they say with the "customer loyalty" discounts) until the pool is exhausted. When they want to put a quantity limit on, they know how to do it. They do it all the time. But in this case it was just "time limited" for 24 hours.

And they aren't out of stock; they're still selling it for full price. They just decided not to honor the 24 hour sale price any more, pure and simple.

I call BS.
