Good price. Been trying to find a few 120GB SSDs under £50 and it’s been quite slim pickings recently

True, CEX is an option, but at this price you may as well go new

Yes, I emptied CeX of their £30 SSDs (got a few Samsung EVO 840 and others from there, as well as some Drevo M.2 128GB SSDs) - I did notice one of the drives I had from them had drive health of just 43%, it had 24TB of writes to it... but it's under warranty for 2 years and isn't in any mission-critical stuff. I am just sick of waiting on mechanical drives to do their thing. Buying an SSD is like giving yourself the gift of time

Depends what you want it for.. Still, its a bit expensive considering we were getting 120gb ones here for around £20 a year or so ago..
Can I assume that this is a standard fit? I want to replace the hard disk in my two year old pc with an SSD. This looks to fit the bill regarding size and price.

It will be a standard for for what it is (a 2.5" ssd).

It will likely be significantly smaller in every dimension than your desktop HDD (3.5").

If you are not having both henceforth then you may need a 2.5>3.5 adapter (so that 2.5 ssd fits in 3.5 slot).
Or just sellotape / duct tape / velcro it to the PC case (SSD is a lot smaller and much less sensitive to knocks than HDD).
You can Google this for guides. (And on migrating your data)

SSDs are commonly found as the following types :

SATA - Very common
mSATA - Less common
M.2 (either NVMe or AHCI/SATA) - more common on desktop computers but increasingly common on laptops

The drive in this deal is for a standard SATA 3.5" SSD so you'll need to check the compatibility of your machine. The way I'd try and do this is run Crucial System Scanner, which should give you compatible RAM and SSD upgrades for your machine >

I'm getting that way as well. Standard mechanical drives are now becoming too slow. But I can't seem to justify the outlay on larger ssds just yet.

24tb doesn't sound a lot, is that the main reason the drive is at 43% health? My 240gb SSD has had around 2tb written to it, but is at 100% health still. It's not used for anything heavy duty though, but 24tb would be the equivalent of around 100 cycles spread across the whole drive, so surprised the health is that low?

Something to do with wear levelling. I only noticed by accident when I was trying to read the sensors on my mainboard and GPU. It doesn’t bother me as I’m not doing a lot of writes, I just wanted fast startup and operation. Even when health reaches zero it should still work mostly.

It’s 24TB to a 120GB disk though so that’s the equivalent of filling it totally 200 times over.
If it was run pretty full, then the wear rate will be worse as the available blocks are recycled more often
Ok for windows and nothing else, but too small if you ever intend to put a game on.

Well that's all relative. You could fit quite a few retro and or indi games on it. If you are only looking 120gb budget drives chances are you don't have the CPU or GPU grunt for AAA games. (Like on my laptop)
But on the flip side you wouldn't even fit W10 and Forza 7 on the drive!
