Looks decent deal. But I've never heard of company. Anyone got any experience?

Great price.

yeah ive bought two full machines from dino PC in the past 6 months, both delivered in good time and good service team for support.

That's got to be the cheapest 60GB SSD we've seen yet surely.

I'm with Vik though, anyone heard of them?

Seems legit - my order went through and they used a proper payment gateway with the Mastercard secure code.

Might be a new regular for us to watch here at HUKD then

Nice find Matthew Have some heat buddy.

Well their details are on Companies House, incorporated April 2007, and they've been doing accounts and returning member lists etc, so for that part they're not a new start of fly by night company.

People who are annoyed will always be more vocal than a happy customer.

They're also talking about full PCs, the warranty with Corsair could be direct with Corsair.

Maybe those who have ordered could report back here when they get their HDs?

This might finally be the pice for me to take a punt on an SSD!

EDIT: Oh what the hell, ordered! Thanks OP!

just wondering how this compares to

ebuyer.com/pro…415

not re price, but quality, performance etc

any ideas?

Be almost identical.

it wont let me place an order with virgin credit card..10 attempts

on the phone to them now. problem with the payment gateway - it is timing out.

Tbh pcs going wrong and that are not a problem as this is just a hdd, ssd, so tempted, how much is this elsewhere.

Should be able to fit in most laptops these are only 2.5 I think and most laptops hdd's are 2.5.

You can get Mushkin Callisto for a few pound more, would rather go for a Mushkin and the more reputable company.

I meant leaving the original drive in though - don't think there's many laptops that have 2 bays.

No no he means a laptop with 2 x 2.5 bays.

I think Alienware have some laptops with 2 bays.

Tbh replace the orginal drive with this and go with an external HDD.

Many high-end gaming laptops have this feature, mainly 17" laptops though. My old Dell 1735 had two bays. An alternative, if you want, say, a 15.6" laptop with two hard drives and you don't use your optical drive much, would be an 'optical bay hard drive caddy', which allows you to replace the optical drive with a 2.5" drive.

Very hot. I'd personally hold out for a ocz SATAIII 60gb drive for almost double the read / write speed, but as they cost an extra £30+ from the likes of Scan, this is an amazing deal, especially for everyone with motherboards that support only up to SATAII.

Already got a Kingston but that's why I'm waiting for OCZ Solid or something with speeds in the same range to come down.

Do they ship packages outside UK?

Except that SSDs are still not that reliable at the moment so a few months down the line you might need to RMA this.
