Be aware that the new batches of the SSD Plus are TLC and not MLC anymore.
The SDSSDA-480G-G25 was the MLC version, while the SDSSDA-480G-G26 is the newer TLC one.

I'm voting cold as the G25 version has been on offer plenty of times in the past at £80 with free postage from Amazon, ebuyer, Dabs/BT, e.t.c.

it could be, but if i understand correctly it's pretty pointless as the speed advantage of an SSD is lost when using through a USB port which can only handle slower transfer speeds.

SSDs are best used for installing your operating system and programmes/games on and not really worth it for storing files unless really high resolution videos. unless you are transferring huge amounts to an external drive in one go I wouldn't bother.

I could be completely wrong if someone wants to correct me.

For most people TLC/MLC doesn't matter. It is the faster seek/access/read that really matters. Unless you are using it for large amounts of data read/writes

True, but in this occasion, why not going for the Ultra II that is considered to be better (and also TLC) and has been also on offer plenty of times for £80?

Usb3 is plenty fast enough , also a caddy that is compatible with UASP would be better. There are other advantages tho , esp no moving parts. If its in caddy, its being moved about and that is one thing spinning disk drives dont like.
To take advantage of UASP-enabled devices you will need to be running Windows 8 or newer, or Mac OS X 10.8 or newer. Some versions of Linux running kernel 2.6.3 and higher can take advantage of UASP, but it is limited to a very small set of supported hardware.

Most USB 3.0 hard drive enclosures and docking stations support UASP
UASP stuff

Just about if you take out all the internals including the logic board and battery, plus the casing on the Sandisk.

MacBook Airs have a proprietary format hard drive, similar looking to M.2 format drives but different. And expensive to buy.

One example, there are other suppliers:

Has it been seen at that price since the pound tanked? I remember being able to get 500GB drives earlier in the year for £75 and wish I jumped in then but those days seem to be over.

if your computer supports usb 3.0 i'd say there's still an advantage to ssd, plus of course if you're moving the drive around a lot- ssd is more resilient against knocks and vibrations

It can, but as others have said you will lose the speed advantage of the SSD. There is however a way around this. If you fit an Icy dock into your PC, it will connect directly to a SATA controller. When you plug your SSD into the dock, it will operate at the same speed as an internal SSD. There is also the added advantage of a superior connection that will be less prone to write errors and other problems.

Would this be suitable for a MacBook Pro 2011? Sorry, complete novice when it comes to this!

It won't lose all the data when dropped.

In layman's terms please baby

TLC "wears" faster but is (generally, these days) a bit nippier on transfer.
MLC has a bit more endurance.

In most cases, unless you're going to blitz the thing with 100's of GB of writes every single day of it's sorry existence, you won't care.

​I have done that, speed varies depending on the envlosure used, but with a cheap usb 3.0 Orico enclosure I get speeds of around 200 mb/s, which is much faster than any usb flash drive and safer when dropped around compared to a mechanical drive, + the drive is sooo light, it feels like an empty enclosure. :)

Yes should be fine I put a Samsung ssd in a MacBook Pro 2012 with no problems and has improved performance massively.

​Brexit means Brexit.

If after this week's shenanigans and the PM's clever manoeuvring you believe that then you'll believe I've found a 1TB SSD for £39.99.

Heat please.

Now gone up to €126.99

I'm putting mine up for sale if anyone's interested. It cost £84.62 via my Supercard and I would be looking that for it, including postage. It just arrived this morning. I opened it to make sure there was no damage during delivery (it was just bunged through the letterbox) but I haven't tested it. The security label on the connectors is still intact and it comes with a 3 year warranty. There wasn't even an invoice with it, which is strange for Amazon.

I bought it on a whim and would be better off with the cash. If you're interested PM me and I'll open a For Sale listing.

Proof of price

SSD won't suffer from fragmentation (anywhere near as much) .
USB 3 is very fast.
Read and write at same time is better.
No moving parts means dump it in your bag, no worries.
Larger capacities does not equal more current to spin more platters.
