It's a good price, but really I'm wanting this size and speed for £100. Anything more seems a bad investment.
Buying computer stuff is (almost) never an investment
These were far too expensive for too long. SSD's are probably around the right price now. Hope it doesn't get too hot. HUKD has lost its mind recently.

Supply and demand, look back 20 years you couldn't buy a decent (of that era) PC for less than £1000 then. They weren't overpriced they were priced according to demand. Last year's price hike on HDDs helped a lot to lower SSDs.
Are these mde by Crucial?

No, they use the same drive controller as the OCZ Agility 3 drives. Better company but I would still go for a Crucial or Samsung SSD any day.

Right thanks, I agree with getting Crucial or Samsung. I think I'm leaning towards the Samsung going by all the reviews.

Nah, that's only part of the story. Greed is a bigger factor and the lack of competition, probably patents too.
Nothing wrong with Corsair as a SSD maker. Not voting either way. It is a good price but it's £131.09 on Scan so not much of a deal as it is only a quid or so cheaper than competition.
Was thinking about getting the Samsung 830 (which is 256gb I think) and came in at £127 after cashback.

How do these compare?
Total Lack of CS. Would never buy from them again! Furthermore they wanted a review on a items they never sent to me!
