Good deal in my opinion, came a time where I brought my Samsung 256GB for the same price with Samsung cashback a few years back :|

Just to compare 256GB version with OCZ ARC 240GB recent deal:

http://www.anandtech.com/bench/product/1144?vs=1314

so for extra £3.40 U get 16GB bigger, faster, more reliable drive with great warranty service from crucial.

The 256GB, 512GB and 1TB all have the write speeds listed as 500MB/s, whereas the 128GB drive is 350MB/s. Common for the smaller drives to be slower, but just something to consider.

You'd be paying about another £30 for the 256GB, but getting a lot more speed. So if you were thinking of getting a cheap OS drive, you'd probably be better off with 256GB+

was going to go for the 240gb ocz this week, just pulled the trigger on a 256gb crucial now :)
#5
Very good deal, Hot.
#6
I have the 256gb in my laptop and it made such a noticeable difference, for the price is a worthwhile upgrade.
#7
Bargain price for the 256GB Msata drive - bought to upgrade drive in my Intel NUC (DC3217BY).
#8
Warmth incoming!
#9
Cheers, just bought a 256gb msata...excellent price!

I just hope it fits under my videocard.

Do they come with the two mounting screws?

Got. M500 480GB from Amazon for £109. Now then is it worth getting the M550 for the extra £20 and taking a further loss reselling the M500?

based on this review. the m550 appears in general to be 10 percent faster.

OCZ? Run away, fast. Sure, they're now owned by Toshiba, but not for long enough to have fixed them

Is this worth it for a sata 2 laptop ?

HOT. Bought M550 512GB to replace my old M500 240GB.

Yes but will be limited by your laptop SATA2 speed. When you decide to upgrade your laptop to SATA3 at late date then you can transfer the SSD.
#17
Perfect - I've been waiting for the msata versions to drop in price - the 256gb version has been £90 plus for months. Thanks OP (and lokman).

#21
whats the difference between mSATA and SATA III? i need one for my dell laptop N5050 as a main drive instead of HDD
#22

Great price on the M550 512Gb - ordered, thanks OP.

OP - Your thread title talks about it being the M550 but your link goes to the page for the M500, use this link instead:

http://uk.crucial.com/gbr/en/ssd/series/M550

and it will work fine.
#26
Cracking deal, missed out on the £109 drives over the Christmas period so jumped in for a 512mb, recently took out a 128gb SSD and replaced it with a regular 1tb drive in a steambox and it's like the machine has jumped back 10 years, be good to get it back up to speed!
#27
I see now the smaller mSATA drives are the M550 rather than M500 and are still in stock. Ordered the 256GB. Thanks!

Awesome deal, I've been waiting for a good deal on an ssd for a week now! The M550 is much faster than the MX100.
#31
Really good price, paid around £160 for the 512GB M550 not long ago!
#32
Here's some rookie questions that I dare say will paint me in a poor light :D

1) This says its better than SSD, but the product is called mSATA/SATA - so this deal is *not* for a SSD drive - but its better than an SSD? Can someone explain?

2) Would this universally fit into a laptop? Is memory, regardless of 'style' be universally fitting?

3) How difficult, if possible, is it to swap out a hard drive for a computer - via cloning (so that its just a carbon copy of my current laptop with all the files still in the same place etc).

Many thanks.

1) MSata is a little plug in card version, regular Sata uses the normal cable. The is an SSD.

2) Depends. I have a laptop that has the storage soldered to the main board (its soo thin that is how they decided to fit it) so that CANNOT be upgraded.. But most laptops can. You can use the tools on Crucials site to check if it will fit.

3) Physically swapping a hard drive is easy. Cloning is apparently very straightforward but I have never done it.

I've only used 70gb of my hard drive, so 128gb is best for me. Ordered!
#35
Thanks, ordered the M550 512GB
#36
my current hard drive is 750GB, think it's worth getting a 256GB then buy a external hard drive or pay the extra money for the 512GB. I have dell 15R laptop
#37
Hoping Amazon will price match this.. got some vouchers that would love to be used.

Was looking at getting a 256gb 850 pro, but the M550 512gb for slightly cheaper seems worthwhile, even after the performance fall.

What are you primarily using storage for at the moment? Personally, I'd go for the bigger one (saves having to continually get out the external HDD) - depends what your budget allows.
#39
Thanks OP !! Ordered a 512GB to upgrade my current 120GB drive.

Heat added !!!
#40
last question before I make my purchase... is this the lowest price the 512GB model has been? handy it's from Crucial direct and a 3 year warranty
