This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

I know this is posting an eBay deal code, but I've been watching prices on these for a while and this seems the cheapest non shady important, plus 3% cashback with top cashback!

was surprised as this works out a lot cheaper than ebuyer normal store which is currently £199.44, normally they hike up the ebay prices, incidently there are some good deals on graphics cards too

I want one. I do not need one. Decisions...
are these the poo ones that slow right down when they fill past a certain point?

from what I can tell in the real world you have to write a lot of data reading it from a device that can max out the write speed on one of these, even so it seems that unless your really trying to throttle it down it should still perform at least the same as a high end sata ssd whilst still being able to read very fast. To me its like buying the amd 8 core chip instead of the intel 8 core chip, in the real world not gonna notice a huge difference, but in the wallet world, big difference!

I think this review shows the real world use on these drives quite well, for me these drives are mainly going to be used for reading data, I have another fast nvme drive (which I can't tell any difference over the m4 sata drive it replaced) if I really need to have consistent write speeds of over a 1gb/s

Although in a weeks time I might be complaining about it!!

Yes, if you're going to be writing over 100gb at a time to them they may show some slowdowns as the cache fills up.

Day to day use? Good luck seeing any real difference between these and the significantly more expensive MLC Samsung drives.
I have had one of these for a few months now. Amazing SSD for my use of mainly gaming, so there's no issue with slow down for me. Only time I had that was transferring gaming files from a 1TB HDD. Coming from a 256GB 600p you can surprisingly feel the difference. Boots quicker and is very snappy. It's now the only storage I have on my PC.
Yup, you have to give this a fair chunk to swallow at once to see drive speeds dip any.

Considering it's priced better than 2.5" sata SSD's and about 3x faster.... no brainer imo.



Also, question:

Has anyone raided these? Any issues? Tempted.

so installed one of these in a friends pc earlier, copied 370gb of stuff accross to it from a sata ssd, no slowdown with that size transfer. seemed more limited by the read speed of the sata ssd than anything.

All concerns gone out of the window, also that was whilst installing various things as it was a clean install, windows going nuts in the background, 100% usage constantly on the drive, we did put a heatsink on it, but it never went over 48c which I thought was pretty impressive
