Who are you asking? I don't personally ship to the US, hotukdeals.com doesn't sell anything.

The OCUK checkout has United States in the options - I'm already registered so I click "add new address" then just below United Kingdom is United States. It's not under America in case that's where you were looking.

Toshiba make a lot of SSD stuff, they just don't push their own Toshiba-badged SSDs. There are no worries about reliability regarding Toshiba. I'd certainly buy one if it was the right price at the right time (I have Intel, Crucial and Samsung SSDs and an OCZ just for lols!)

While it's still a good deal, LambdaTek also have it for a little more (£145) and there are £150 Crucials on Amazon for 512GB, so it's a good deal if you need a 512GB SSD now, but if you don't need it now, don't be afraid to wait because in 3 or 6 months or more they will probably be around again for the same price.

Interesting, the crucial mx100 uses 16nm and is £155, this is 19nm and is £130.

I was hoping they would be noticeably cheaper by then?

that is a really good price for a pretty good SSD. HEAT

Unlikely over the next few months. They will probably not get cheaper than this for a solid 3+ months, but there will be c.500GB SSDs for £150 or so even after this expires (a little more expensive, but not massively so). By Christmas they will probably be even cheaper than this.

I'm looking for a 1TB SSD, when are prices likely to be £200 for one? I can afford one right now but it doesn't seem cost effective.

No. There's actually meant to be an SSD price war soon so prices are expected to fall even further. :)

It must be.
Never seen/heard so much unsubstantiated nonsense in one reply.

I have one of these drives, personally i feel its far better than the crucial drives I've used (m4's) consistently high read writes, when working with large files reading from a other ssd or ram drive and writing to the toshiba sustained writes stay above 400mb/s
also with uefi & windows 8 boots to usable desktop from cold in 6 seconds :)

Voted hot!
I got this drive installed inside my Macbook Pro and it works flawlessly.

He's probably right though. Unless a nand factory burns down or something.

Looks like OCUK don't do Topcashback anymore.

Nice! I'm really feeling the improvement with SSDs in my PC for live streaming sample for music and general startup times etc. Great price for one this size!
#24
I am interested in this but it seems to be £149.99 when I click to see the deal.

Am I doing something wrong? Or has the price increased?
#25
Yeah price has gone up :(

So what PC do you have?
What are your boot and shutdown times?
What do you use your PC for?

SSD's are so much faster than mechanical drives and much more reliable. 512GB for £150ish is a bargain and everyone should have one in there machine soon. Especially if it's your main machine.

Yep it is. I got this SSD already installed in my early 2011 13" Macbook Pro. Its easy to replace they use the same standard SATA connectors. I just followed these instructions https://www.ifixit.com/Guide/MacBook+Pro+13-Inch+Unibody+Early+2011+Hard+Drive+Replacement/5119 I suspect it will similar instructions depending how old Macbook Pro is.

The performance with that SSD installed is impressive (Macbook Air like performance) plus I seemed to gained an hour of addtional battery life as well

with NAND, smaller isn't better. smaller will mean less write cycles, thus lower endurance. Hence why Samsung are moving to 3D-NAND, which allows them to back off the size to around 40nm.

Depends on what model you have? As long as it's not a Retina model I think you should be OK.

Who are you trying to convince? Us or yourself because you can't afford one?
Your machine "doesn't slow" because it is slow already!
But you are happy to make a judgement based on a complete lack of experience with SSDs? Really?
FYI, your PC would boot faster, start programs faster, load data faster and write it out faster with an SSD. If you run short of memory and your machine starts swapping to disk, even a small amount, the SSD will make that much faster.
It's not "money to burn", it's a sensible upgrade that can make a 2 or 3 year old system feel like it's new and fast again!

If you are happy with your machine then great.
There is absolutely no doubt that an SSD will improve performance markedly as well as being more energy efficient.
I guess that those that do not use a PC might say that those who do have money to burn.

What's the point of waiting if it's going to be the same price anyway?

I really need to upgrade it seems. I'm only getting 202MB read and 100MB write on my aged OCZ Agility 3!
