Samsung's SSDs probably aren't the reason for their profit margin, take advantage while you can

DigiTimes is reporting that Samsung's previous quarter earnings were over $7 billion (editor note: corrected typo), a record for the company continuing the trend from the previous quarter.  Samsung has a huge range of products from appliances to PCs and so the profit comes from a variety of business units, with the mobile division mentioned as a star player.  This is perhaps not the reason that 830 series SSDs are so inexpensive right now, but if you are thinking of upgrading your storage now is the time.  Right now at NewEgg you can grab the 830 256GB for $200, and the 128GB model is a mere $90.  You can also check Amazon and your other favourite retailers but for right now the Samsung 230 represents the best deal in SSDs going.  Take advantage now, as the 830 series is on its way out and if their profit margins drop the 840 series won't see the same discounts

"Samsung previously indicated that its smartphone sales would remain strong in the third quarter. In addition, the company's system LSI division is set to register solid sales growth in the quarter, thanks to growing sales generated from its advanced process manufacturing targeting mobile application processors and CMOS image sensors used for high-end mobile products."
