Not sure about this when put in context an 8tb red mech drive is cheaper, I mean it's ok for an ssd but really these should be cheaper now, 1tb is easily used up and games like gears 4 using I think 130gb which is required for the sheer quality these 1tb drives are selling less and less.
the xbox s even does a 2tb drive even though the drive is a slow spinning mech drive the size is there even if the speed isn't, I really though Microsoft would start using flash storage at least for the os, but looks like they won't be doing that even with scorpio, strange.

Won't vote either way as I'm really not sure, I'm interested to find out that there is a wd blue sdd though so thx for that.

Agree, not saying that there is price fixing but something is keeping the price artificially up.

Then a 3 year warranty, yeah I don't think they believe their own MTBF figure. I'm amused by the thought of my great grandkids finding my old SSD still working though ;P

3 years isn't enough for that money, the old Sandisk X400 has a 5 year and is much cheaper.

Paid £145 for my Ultra II last november, what's with the stupidly high prices all a sudden?

I believe you're thinking of the next COD Game Infinite Warfare or whatever it's called.

Gears 4 is only 70GB on PC or 50GB on XBOX.

Check the pound to dollar rate then you will realise ..

Not as quick as the Crucial MX200 1tb SSD and its cheaper too.

Well, I think that the maths goes roughly along the lines that if each writeable part of the SSD has a mean time to failure of 72 years, then in theory it would take a bit over 3 years for the SSD to be unusable. A certain proportion of writeable parts of the SSD can fail without the drive being dead, you see. But once that proportion is reached, adios.

The idea of a 72 year failure time also won't actually be based on time, but on average writes. They will define what constitutes average writes, and it will probably be on the low side.

Bear in mind that SSDs can only be written over completely before they die something between 50 and a few hundred times total, depending on the SSD. That means writing 100 GB of video to an SSD a day is actually quite destructive.

However, MOST use cases only a few GB is written per day, even accounting for OS swap space, etc, and that really will stretch the useful lifespan beyond what you'd believe, based on the initial idea that 50 full writes might kill a drive. Years, and years.

But note that like any device, it can die at any time. 3 years is a decent warranty. I'd prefer to see the days of 5 year warranties return, but most companies wouldn't say a laptop should last 5 years, let alone the disk inside it.

This is not solely the conversion rate, things were getting pricey before all that. Besides this DOUBLE the price, the £ isn't worth half what it was 11 months ago.

Oh I hear ya, they can last an awfully long time under the right circumstances, I mean I've got a pair of Intel 335s in my workstation bought back in 2012 which means they... yup they're out of warranty. Anyway they've seen fairly heavy use (20TB and 40TB written, each drive is 240GB) yet the wear out indicator's still saying at worst 99 on the more heavily used drive. Crazy lifespan. Almost tempted to hook them up to the NAS and see if I can cause them to fail :P

Dunno if this is a good deal or not. It's more expensive than the Samsung 850 Evo 1Tb, currently about £270 on Amazon.

That was a black Friday deal as well; it hasn't been a regular price. The SanDisk Ultra II is currently £208 on amazon.

The WD SSD is a new model but given the options other people have mentioned (MX200, 850 EVO, X400) which are faster / cheaper (or both!), I don't think this is a hot deal, sorry.

WD owns Sandisk now
