According to the review on there;

Sustained Write 275MB/S
Sustained Read 461MB/S

Seems a nice price for an entry level SSD. But then again, seriously - the higher end ones that claim up to ~500MB/sec - it's theory. Not practical.

With that said, you will still see significant performance over a standard SATA HDD with this thing.

Part of Amazon's Lightning deals so assuming it's limited stock maybe.

49p cheaper than the previous posted Novatech deal!

The guy with the only review on there seems quite pleased with it, and has stated it's quite fast.

Not a review as such, but I've got 2 of these - one in a WHS 2011 server as the OS drive and the other in my VMware host again for the O/S

They're much faster than HDD's, but not up there with OCZ Agility 3's on outright speed (Got 2 of those, but they're in Macs), also the Kingston V200's feel slightly faster, but again in a Mac.

I have no benchmark results (can't be bothered :)) but I'm very happy with the Sandisks for what they cost me (39.99 from Novatech a few months ago) and while they aren't bleeding edge, they will make a big difference compared to a system with rotational disks.

I'm quite tempted to get one of these myself. As i'm still on rotational.

But i can't justify spending ~£100 (As i would need a big one) for a few seconds transfer increase. I'd rather wait it out and make a coffee that costs around 3p each time!

Once you've taken the plunge (it took me a while as well), you won't look back and you'll wonder why you put up with a hard disk for a primary drive. If you have a desktop then a small SSD makes even more sense (because you can still keep the hard disk). If you're on a laptop then I found I need a 120 or 256GB drive coupled with an external case for the old drive.

It's not just the few seconds to boot and load apps, it's all that time saved over a period and not being slowed down while waiting - I swear an SSD pays for itself very quickly in general productivity boost. I always said a five minute business phone call isn't really 5 minutes, it's the time of the call, plus time dialling, taking notes and getting back into the swing of things, so you're looking at more like 15 minutes.

Good price for sure, and a good brand but not as cheap as the Verbatim the other day - I'll still vote hot as this really is hard disk pricing - even the cheapest 2.5" hard disks cost around £30 these days.

So is this worth the £4.50 more than the PC World Verbatim deal?
(which is still available for the 64gb despite being marked as expired)

This is actually OOS.

PCWorld aren't very good with their website. If you click on the actual product info it shows as OOS.

Does this SSD come with everything I'll need to install it into my hard drive? Never really installed one I might take the plunge also would like to know what they require...

Many thanks.

EDIT: Looks simple seems to require a SATA cable and power and then I can just seat it.

To install it in a laptop, you need nothing. This is because it's a 2.5" drive, the set standard for laptops/PS3.

In order to install it in a desktop, you'll need a mounting bracket (Not completely necessary as it's still functional without, but get one ASAP so it's nice and tightly fit in your case).

Expensive for a slow 64GB drive, voted cold.

Not bad, but it's only a ~£4 difference, imo not worth it for a downgrade to Sata II!

If you don't really use your DVD drive, you can get a caddy to put your large storage HDD into the space where your optical drive was, and use the SSD as the main drive. I just put my DVD drive into an external enclosure as I rarely use it, but I needed the storage space from the HDD.

Yet you're (un)suprisingly reticent to post a deal of a fast 64GB drive that is hot......

So show us the links for cheaper slow 64GB drives.

Don't forget to add £17 on to that price for when you have to RMA it to the Netherlands. :)

Would any of these work in an xbox?
