The samsung MZ-7TE250KW desktop kit includes the most excellent 840 Evo series drive, plus a USB to SATA cable, regular SATA data cable, transfer software and fixing kit.

It's now down to the same money as the bare drive. Only caveat is it's not showing on the main item page as the first available choice because it's quoting 1-2 months delivery lead time.

However, I bought this drive a month back and again it was quoting 1-2 months but arrived within a week. Don't let this supposed 1-2 month delivery put you off...it is sure to be an over estimate.

Box Contains
1 x MZ-7TE250KW
3.5” bracket with screws
1 x SATA data cable
1 x SATA to USB 2.0 connector
1 x SSD Installation Guide(Printed)
1 x SSD Warranty Summary(Printed)
1 x Samsung software & manual CD
Samsung Activation Sticker

Nice slim fit if anyone intends to use in a compact laptop, netbook or Mac mini.

Impressively fast and responsive drive. Can't fault it.
#2
its the fastest ssd I own. Wonderful bit of kit
#3
Gonna order as it sounds like everything needed to install is in the box already, just what I needed.
#4
Usually dispatched within 1 - 2 months!! Still hot.
#5
Thanks for the heads up. I've 'pre-ordered' it and I'm looking forward to getting a dispatch email :D
#6
should of waited brought the mx100 and a drive bracket arriving on monday

Is the 500gb version significantly faster than this drive in real world use? The benchmarks seem to suggest it's faster but do you think I'd notice any difference for Windows and Photoshop, etc?
I've never had an SSD before so please excuse my ignorance.
Thanks for the advice.

No. If you're concerned about performance, you should only avoid the 120GB version:

£109.99 in Curry's Clearance from £129.99.
Watch Amazon's Retail Revolution on BBC Two HD and then you will see how Amazon have cornered the market.

Will see what Flubit says to this. Just submitted a demand.

I thought it had to be in stock at Amazon to get a Flubit offer. Given it a go having seen this. Their info page says the average discount is 10 to 15%. I not had more than 7% out of 4 or 5 requests for different products.

This comes with the extra cables.

Thanks for the advice.

Judging by the reviews the most important thing is the memory controller, not the capacity of the drive. And on this one the 500gb version has the same spec.

Not if it is marked as dispatched.

If bought of Amazon themselves or a 'fulfilled by amazon' third party you can return for a refund (less delivery costs).
#21
I submitted a flubit demand for this about a month ago when it was still showing 1-2 months on amazon.

At first it quoted me around 5 days for delivery, but then after I paced the order about a day later it updated the delivery date to about 4 weeks away. I ended up contacting flubit and cancelling the order and just got the bare drive instead

Amazing drive btw.

Result! Got an offer of 12% off this time! Excellent. Going for this.

I've yet to get anything offered beyond 6% myself. Have just put in a request so I'll see if I'm also a fortunate one :)

Technically, I don't need another....such is this place for draining the hard earned :p

Guys this is called drop shipping, Amazon advertise goods they don't have but agree prices with the manufacturer, you order they drop ship.

Albeit another great deal will beat this one within 2 weeks......heat added its a good deal except for the delivery lead time.

Drop ship or not, mine arrived within a week of ordering. If you were seriously after one of these you'd find previous comments within old deals for this drive reaffirm a similar story.

I am thinking about ordering one myself for my gaming tower so quicker delivery will suit me!

Now to invest some time looking into this Flubit discount.....

I haven't had a response back as yet on this drive from flubit but they just offered me a measly 2% off the 500gb evo!

Jury is out on the benefit of using flubit for me currently.

I've 2 x Corsair Force 3 120gb SSD drives to house my games. Thinking it's time I moved them on for another one of these evo's. Well worth using ssd drives for games storage though as you never have to wait for any excessive load times ;)

The Flubit offer came up early this morning. They offer 12% off the Amazon's £84.99 saving me £10.60 so the final offer price including Standard Delivery comes to £74.39. Think I'll go for it (I do hope they'll send the set with all the cables).

Why wouldn't they? If that's what you order that's what you'll get.

Do Flubit often send the incorrect items? I just joined them and was pleased to get a 12% offer on a Sandisk 64GB pulse. They sent me the Ultra Plus model by mistake (155 MB/s seq write compared to 240MB/s of the Pulse). Not impressed.

can these be raided the same as platter drives under windows 7 pro?

I had the same thing on a first attempt to use them. Ordered the Crucial 250gb M500 and got sent the 120gb in error. Took over a week to sort out a refund after being promptly returned. All that for a 6% saving.

I will give them another crack though just in case I was unlucky. If it happens again though that'll be me done!.
