I've bought a lot from Novatech over the years and have always had good service.

If you're voting cold, please let us know where you can buy the same for less, thanks

50+ in stock right now but there probably won't be for much longer

Pardon my ignorance but what is the difference between your bog-standard hard drive and the solid state ones?

Solid state ones are silent (don't have a spinning disk like a normal hard drive) and can have improvements in speed and power usage over normal hard disks. It's easiest to think of them as a fast memory card (same sort of technology).

The market is a minefield at the moment, so unless you really want one and are prepared to read up on all the different makes, it's easiest to wait for a while.

I think the cost difference is enough to put most people off, don't they only have 50,000 read and writes as well or something?

No moving parts - it's memory chips rather than spinning disks, just like your USB memory stick really. They are lighter, faster and use less power (so longer battery life) than a standard hard disk but obviously more expensive. They will be more and more common in the future :)

Yeah, they do have a limited read/write cycle ... but they have technology in them to try and minimize the problem. I remember reading that, for a 64GB drive, you'd have to write about 10GB every day for 5 years to wear one out. Worth keeping in mind, but nothing to worry about ... if you're buying an SSD now, there'll definitely be something cheaper and faster about in 5 years.

Nice deal. These are coming down in price all the time. Heat added

These were £99 a couple of weeks ago, and I believe they are the same price as the better SLC type they were selling before. £114 is still an ok price, but with all tech there is always something better and cheaper just around the corner. So its ok if you NEED it now, but not as cheap as its been.
