Note: This Deal of the Day expired on 1 Febuary 2012. Sorry if you missed out!
One of Amazon’s electronics Deal of the Day posts today is the Kingston HyperX 120GB SATA III upgrade kit. Normally the bare drive is around $200-225 at most retailers (and over $300 at stores that gouge you with the full MSRP), you can pick it up today for $129.99 after rebate ($189.99 if you don’t mail in the rebate). Not only that it come with a HDD bay converter for mounting it, a new SATA 3.0 cable, Acronis Migration Kit (to clone your existing disk to the new SSD), and an external USB drive to using in the cloning process. All that for $129.99 is a steal.
