This is the best price for a SSD of this size, at approx. £1.27/GB.

I don't think there is another 200GB+ SSD of this quality or better with better value.

A good price, but put off by 3.5" form factor. Would prefer the 2.5" with 3.5" adapter bracket. Expect prices to come down shortly with the release of the OCZ Onyx 2 drives

Woo, my 3rd flamedeer was found on this page, maybe that's a sign I should buy it

Thanks

Cant beleive I paid 400 quid for an OWC Extreme drive a few months back, the prices on the old sandforce drives have dropped a hell of a lot Unless its just because of the xmas deals.

I spend a fortune on my pc but couldn't bring myself to spend this amount on a small SSD its only a matter of time before we see the prices drop so they are a reasonable alternative to normal HDD, even at 240gb its still not enough to run as a main drive.

Id prefer 2 Samsung F4's in Raid0 total cost around £70 so when you look at it like that they are very expensive even a Raid5 setup will be a 1/3 of the price of this.

Somehow doubt that's going to happen anytime soon since silicon fabs are so expensive. 240GB is more than enough for all speed critical files. OS and a few apps, the rest go elsewhere. But no way I'm spending £300... A 60GB to 100GB would do me for the OS.

BTW, OCZ make you RMA to the Netherlands at the your expense...

I posted this deal a while ago except now it is £6 cheaper, didnt get any where near as hot before lol

SSDs are due to halve in price very soon, in theory Q1 of 2011. Maybe worth holding out unless you need one desperately.

Good to see them coming down - almost to the £1 per GB mark

Though as we wait even faster variants are coming out, and I don't just mean nudging 5mb/sec at a time.

So while this deal is:
OCZ Agility 2 240GB 3.5" SSD (285MB Read, 275MB Write)

OCZ also have a couple of other models that blow it away for performance:
OCZ RevoDrive 240GB PCI-Express Solid State Drive (540MB Read, 530MB Write) - HERE
OCZ IBIS 240GB 3.5" HDSL Super-Fast Solid State Hard Drive (740MB Read, 720MB Write) - HERE

Fair enough the prices are also there to match that performance, but the horizon is looking very good for upcoming harddrives

When do you guys think the new SSD's are coming out?

I can't believe how much the prices of computer equiptment is dropping for example , i brought 4gb DDR3 ram for £60 about a month ago and now they are £15 for 2gb!

I had no problem spending £200 on a 2GB (yes GB not TB) HDD back in the day but this still seems very expensive to me. I really don't have a major issue with the speed of HDDs, certainly not enough to warrant spending this sort of money. I guess I'm not as impatient as some!

I read a review of the RevoDrive and it was very underwhelming. For home users it seems to be very much a case of the law of diminishing returns. It’s a bit like RAID, on paper it can seem great but in the real world it often flatters to deceive.

If you don't care about your data then RAID 0 conventional drives, for everything else don't use RAID 0.

Not a problem. Just RMA back to your UK retailer and let him deal with OCZ.

if your thinking of spending around this amount of money, you should think of buying the revodrive/revodrive 2, a bit more expensive for the same capacity, but more desirable, somewhat faster. Stick it in your pci express slot and off you go

These sustained read and write speeds are mostly irrelevant and are just willy-waving really - it's the speed in dealing with smaller files that is the issue. Unless you're dealing with raw video files for editing, the chances are you're not going to be processing multi-gigabyte single files on your PC. And if you are, a four disk RAID-0 solution is much more cost effective...

Don't just go out and buy a OCZ revo drive without first checking you have a free 4x or faster PCIe and that you motherboard supports booting over PCIe. Consider also a few motherboards that are supposed to work but don't, the ones that are picky which PCIe slot is used and of course the ones that will run the revo drive just fine but something else stops working.

i bought a 2.5 120gb for my alienware lappy

Windows 7 now crashes a lot and get bluescreens . Its going back and hopefully give me one that works ! . Doesnt do it as often with system restore turned off

Just be careful guys

You can get a 64gb SSD for £75 in 2.5" factor with 3.5" bracket.

Get 4 of those and raid them and you have a quicker drive and cooler drives and 16gb of extra space!
