Given the current upward pricing trend of every thing RAM or NAND flash based, I thought I'd share this deal and hope that it you will save a few pounds if you were about to make a purchase.

Purchased using one of the many fee free foreign currency cards, making sure you pay in € at the check out it is currently €137.16 + €5.56 shipping which works at at just under £120.95 at the time of writing.

Cheapest I could find in the UK with P&P was about £150, so that's almost 25% more expensive.

They also have the 275GB verison HERE and that works out at £80.30, which isn't a great saving but it's not too bad.

Oh, and the 1TB Version HERE at only £231

Happy bargain hunting this easter. :)

Kinda silly question but, I know this is 2.5 and if i remember correctly, those are for laptops.
Are people now using 2.5 for desktops? If so, how?
Either using a 3.5" to 2.5" adapter, or if you have a modern PC case most have places for mounting a 2.5" already.
Or like me, use velcro double sided tape. :D
Not gonna lie, I've had SSDs dangling by their SATA power connectors in my PC...

Yes, it's lazy. No, I'm not ashamed. :p

EDIT: Wow, I knew SSDs had gone up in price this year (and this is a good price, considering), but I bought two of these for £78 each in November... Roll on 2018 for some hopefully better SSD (and RAM) prices. That aside, the two drives I bought have performed flawlessly in RAID 0 as my PC's game storage drive.

"making sure you pay in € at the check out" don't use Amazon's build in Forex, they'll rip you right off. Pay in Euros and let your card merchant use their Forex rates.

It's cheaper because it's less then half the capacity. :)

As others have mentioned some cases have relevant slots, Velcro them to the case or let them go commando and hang loose.
They weigh very little and don't need a secure mounting as there are no moving parts.
I've been known to wedge mine between optical drives or even in the cable management spaces :)

This is the one I just bought. 120Gb is more than enough for my C drive and the rated speed is incredible. Plus 5 year 175 TBW warranty. Shame about the £10 delivery.

What brilly said.
If nvme m2 then:
sm961 256gb £115+del from scan... Performance between 960 evo and 960 pro due to MLC nand and polaris 8 channel controller. Looks good but read up on installation etc as it's an oem drive with no fancy packaging or disk etc.

You should post the deal so others can benefit, the price of SSD's have gone up a lot recently and £102 for 750GB is an absolute steal at the moment, nice find. :)

This is the cheapest I can find in UK...
Phison 480GB SSD from maplin £109.99

I have just realised there is also a £15 voucher offer with this Maplin SSD - meaning you are (sort of) getting it for £95. Seems a good enough offer to list separately - so i have.. http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/480gb-ssd-from-maplin-for-109-99-plus-get-a-15-voucher-last-day-offer-2667034

Both this Crucial and that SanDisk are, near as makes no difference, £0.23/GB. You pay less for the SanDisk because it's a 480GB drive, whereas the Crucial is a somewhat unusual 525GB.

The Phison is cheaper, but I've never even heard of Phison SSDs and I'm not sure I'd trust 480GB of my data to one....that said, I've got SSDs running in RAID 0... X)

Or just £29 more for a 250GB Samsung NVMe drive.

The crucial is a 3D nand based hard drive whereas the sandisk is 2D. Although there is. I speed difference, There is some evidence that the 3D versions have better reliability with repeat read writes. The difference is similar to Samsung 850 vs 750.

525 but pretty sure the samsung is supposed to be a fair bit better in terms of performance

Wow these have become expensive all of a sudden while I wasn't looking :(
#34
Amazon had these on a deal of the day around xmas for £80. So glad I jumped on it! Fitted in my PS4 Pro. When formatted, you don't get the entire 525gb. I believe some is used for wear levelling. No problems to report

Yeah, I got 2 of them then ... regretted not buying more as I need another one for a possible Ryzen build soon.

You know Crucial are just the retail brand of Micron right? Every bit as respected and proven as Samsung in the semi conductor business, with a longer history and some serious innovation behind them.

sure I do, but when you're trying to match byte to byte and a pound to pound, this crucial product falls a bit behind samsung evos because of its comparitive lower speed, cache, and warranty period.

now that the price of sammy has gone up maybe crucial is an option if one cannot afford sammy :{

You do remember Samsung released SSDs that degrade over time in terms of performance?
