I don't consider mail in rebates a deal. I only look at the price out the door. Rebates are a hassle to deal with. Then you have to wait for weeks on end to get the rebate. If you screw up on the rebate instructions you lose the rebate or it gets "lost" in the mail.
Further if you have a problem a week or two down the line and want to return the item for a refund you can't. Since most of these rebates require you to mangle the packaging to send them the barcode. Instead you have to wait two to six weeks for the manufacturer to send you a replacement.
So it is $175 for the SSD. I can get a Mushkin for $165 that is nearly twice the MB/s and three time the 4KB IOPS.
