If you guys are not in a hurry for a big SSD, I would wait. Prices come down daily. I predict that the 500GB models will be below $200 by the end of the year.

That may happen in the first half of 2014 I think.

Sales tax. I have a large Amazon warehouse only 40 miles from me in the state, but they have never charged sales tax. Our law says even if it would come from a AZ or CA warehouse they should since the have the physical presence. We are also give the opportunity to declare out of state purchases on the income tax form too, I'm sure we all do that.

Even if I were to drive someplace and buy things, I'm supposed to declare it. On the income tax form the sales tax, if things ARE reported, it's less than the normal 7% we pay. So far we have no city sales taxes here (IN) but do have local and county INCOME taxes.

The sales tax rules are really confusing in this country. But fortunately they are low. In my country sales tax is a federal tax and has to be included in all prices (as has to be tips in restaurants). Prices may not be showns without sales tax. The downside is that the sales tax is 19% - automatic tips are 10%. The tax weighs heavy e.g. when you buy a car. And there is no escape, lol.

Yeah on luxury goods but not food. More on Alcohol. Of course I only use alcohol to clean heatsink compound off of the heatsinks and cpu's.Value added tax is a Euro Zone thing, long ago before the UK joined the Common Market as it was called then it was called Sales or Purchase tax.
There are 3 Amazon centers here in the Indianapolis metro area. Whitestown, Indianapolis and Plainfield. I never get charged tax either.
New egg is going down the tubes as Gorge Carlin used to say. Not including weather delays the last few orders have taken 7 to 10 days to be shipped out when they used to be same day. A video card took over 2 weeks to get here from NJ via Chicago and there was only a 3 day delay that could have been blamed on the weather, and yes the card a Gigabyte Radeon HD7770 1gb and the 2gb version are out of stock now.

I know that looks wacky but, usually, a seemingly out of the way route will actually be faster due to connecting schedules and shipping routes. The exception is when the shipper uses a common carrier to deliver to the USPS for the final delivery. That only saves the shipper money at the expense of the time needed to get the package to the destination. Usually, tracking also suffers.
