No worries. I'd still be snoozing if I didn't have to cook Sunday lunch.;)

Damn, I accidentally clicked 'cold'. Sry OP, this is clearly HOT.

Getting cheaper and cheaper

Does MSATA fit the same port but is just a smaller drive....eg can I put this in a server as boot drive (but get the mSata incase I decide to move it to a laptop later)

What's the power saving against normal Drive in a laptop?

Thinking of putting one in Samsung NC10 - pro / cons

Hi everyone, thanks OP for this deal. Do you know if this is delivered with screws?

Afraid not, you need an MSATA port or you would need to purchase an adapter. They can be found cheaply on ebay.

You need to look at a standard SATA SSD, this one will not fit in your Samsung netbook.

It will save power but not a lot compared to a normal drive. It's the boot times and speed of the laptop that you will see a difference in.

This guy on youtube How To Upgrade mSATA SSD Drive In Dell XPS 8700 [3m12s] fitting an m500 suggests it does.

I own one already and seriously considering this for my second msata slot.

NB: An msata to SATA adapter is really cheap - and it's better to get msata, as you might upgrade to a laptop with a dedicated msata slot in future, which means you get to have 2 drives in your new laptop.

Yes they do... I got one last week and might return it for this one.

Upgraded my Toshiba ultrabook with this and it flys

my PC's motherboard has a socket on it for one of these. Is there any advantage of getting on of these that connects direct to the motherboard over a normal one that connects via a cable?

Wonder if amazon will match this!

Not much, less cable, less weight, less room in smaller cases but performance wise... nope. Slightly lower power consumptions too I think

Just upgraded an HP Folio 13 to one of these. Very fast. Boot and shutdown times are impressive. Installing it in a Folio 13 was a pain in the proverbial, but doesn't remove heat from this deal - especially as I paid around £100 about 3-4 months ago. Nice deal.

Bought one of these for £121 5 months ago. Amazing performance, transformed my Thinkpad. Even considering the recent price drops I regret nothing!

I got this a couple of months ago when on a sale and with Quidco came down to just over £78. Just as a heads-up for anyone considering this, it is bare-bones so you need to get yourself a SATA to USB cable (around £3 or so) and software to clone the drive you are replacing. There are a number of free perfectly competent programs available online.

I've wanted the mSata version @ sub £80 for ages but now flubit have just offered me £69 for the standard 2.5" version....... CHEAP

If you're running out of drive bays, then yea - otherwise no.

This is perfect for laptops and ultrabooks; my ultrabook is running a 256GB mSATA SSD and is using the freed up drive slot for a 2TB drive. That's more than most desktops and it's really hard to get any laptop to match the speed/storage without using mSATA.

HOT. these are best suited for laptops. Currently have a dell m4500 which i had to remove my DVD drive to put in a normal SSD.(mSata prices where an absolute con at that time) But now if you have a mSATA port on your laptop , your better off going for this and keeping your optical drive, or better yet like me, having 2 SSD for increased capacity.( i dont use my optical drive ).

Thanks peters123 and olisun for your help

will this fit a Lenovo T410?

Gone up to £86.02
