Battlestation Components (5)

Got the SSD. Black Friday 2014 was NOT, I repeat, was NOT DiGiorno because it delivered. Sandisk Ultra II 240GB for $75. That's ~31¢/GB. Noice! Apologies for delaying the report on this, it's been a week since this all went down. Of course, I used Amazon Prime so I've also had the package for a few days now, too. With this, I have all the components ready.
