[quote=mattclarkie] Since pretty much day 1 I struggle to have anything more than a few GB free on the drive
I managed to run on 80GB Intel SSD with 10GB spare. By far the greatest saving on GB is to limit the system volume information to 25GB from typically 40-80GB. Remove hibernation and reduce folder a folder called "WinSxS" which contains multiple versions of the same Windows files, avoid using Users folder and put as many files to an external disk. If you keep large mail client install mail client on external drive. Install if possible programmes on an external drive or an internal second drive bay, I have 4GB of progarmmes which resides outside of an SSD. Use Treesize Free to find out if there are large temporary files lurking around in temporary folders and delete these manually. These could be large video files downloaded. Each time I do housekeeping I could cut a few GBs off.

I find it hilarious how gamers are willing to spend £250+ on graphics cards but at the mention of large SSDs or reliable PSUs they nope the **** out about how EXPENSIVE it is.

The much lauded 50p per gigabit doesn't make this cheap when it still costs £350! You can buy about 20TB of mechanical disk for that. Paying £50 for an SSD boot drive, I can swallow that, but this is still expensive. What's the target market? Gamers who want to store lots of games with fast load times?

Gamers who don't want their data to be at risk from a tiny fall of about 3 cm from hands to surface. People who want faster rendering times for videos and a generally more fluid experience. People who want their system to consume less power to get longer battery life.

SSD > HDD anyday.

I too am curious - who would actually consider buying this?

Speed. For Pro Audio software with giant sample packs, load times and latency can be reduced.
Me takers on why its such a hot deal please explain similar prices on lots of sites

No one would be able to tell the difference in speed between this or a Samsung 840 Pro for everyday home use, heat from me.

v cheap, its a shame about its performance but i guess you get whats you pay for.

I thought that the M500 960GB was pretty decent? It seems to rank alright on Tom's Hardware?
It is. It does.
