expiredSamsung 840 EVO-Series 750GB 2.5-inch internal SSD: $350 (Reg. $700)

Ebay is offering the Samsung 840 EVO-Series 750GB 2.5-inch SSD for $350. That’s $350 off the original listing, $50 better than Amazon’s current price, and the lowest price we have seen by $40. With sequential read/write speeds of 540 MB/520 MB, and a maximum external data transfer speed of 768 MBps, many customers are reporting that Macbook boot times and general use have sped up significantly with the EVO series SSDs. While most reports are of users sliding this SSD right into their Macbooks — if you’re upgrading your existing 3.5-inch drives — a great way to spend the cash you’re saving here is on a highly rated 2.5-inch bay converter.

This drive (MZ-7TE750BW) has received a solid 4.7/5 star rating among nearly 600 Amazon customers.
