Lol. I would say relax but it's probably too late.

Good price today but I am so glad I got my MX300 750Gb for £105 on black Friday. I did read SSD's were due to rise in price due to demand outstripping production capacity

That's half what they are charging online. How much do they make on these??

Started yesterday ends at the end of trading on Thursday, at your store you will see the posters on the window, not huge big things but when you buy something they have a code on the checkout they type in. BOO HISS BOO I bought a printer on Thursday for £77 quid, getting £40 in cash back but 15% would be an extra tenner. Might just take the receipt back and return and rebuy it.

Yeah that what put me off buying at current prices, that was a storming price, if DR WHO appeared now and said I could have a go in the Tardis but only once, it would be a tough choice between saving Diana or getting the 750gb.

Probably nothing. They are simply raising cash by liquidating stock. All stores will be closing soon as Staples is going online-only (the UK arm was bought for £1 in a restructuring deal last year).

I did. Just confirming, becuase OP has a link to online store.

Hukd put that in automatically because if the deal is online they get commission from online sales.

Anybody got a Store Locator, can't seem to find one online. Or maybe the nearest one in Manchester?

Cracking deal, heat added.

Its just the normal Staples stores, they're rebranding to Office Outlet at some point and the receipt says Office Outlet.

Is this still going, I might get few of them to use as external drives.

Look at photo on post 12, there's a number starts 426 (might be 426429 iirc) phone your local store as that's the code they have it as.

You know those dirty thoughts that you know you should never say out loud, like when you fancy that rather unattractive lunch lady, this is one of those thoughts.

I swear you've done a tapp on my phone. I'm going to write about this on Twitter.

Isn't this quite a lucky find as it's a 2 year old SSD? I don't mean it's a bad disk but usually they clear out this stuff out long before so there can't be many left?

Called the reading shop. Have none it stock

Thanks OP, heat!

Got the last one from the Colchester store (was hoping for two to RAID them, but alas...).

They also had the 256GB version for £54.39 (Inc. discount, one only), in case anyone is in the area and fancies it.

That and the pound being worth loads less than it was before Brexit.
Political arguments aside - it now costs me an extra £20 quid every time I need a new hard drive.

Heads up that there's none in the Manchester or Altrincham stores, staff in both said they don't do internal drives, so you must have got lucky!

I'm stood in Office Outlet right now (was staples) and the 256gb is priced at 79.99. the 512gb is 149.. suggests this is an error to me
(Checked and out of stock. If you can find these drives they are excellent value and have better controllers than the later revisions I think - but would need to check that)

Or the store hasn't updated their prices - mine was listed at £119 on the shelf, but the manager said the price should be the same at all their stores (and they do price match).

I think it's a spoof post

While this would be a very good price, the MX100 512 GB drive has proven very poor quality in my experience.

I've personally had to RMA mine with only 1 year use and lost data when it failed. I know of 1 other person who owns one of these same 512 GB MX100 drives and his is currently performing very poorly (also only 1 year of use so far), requiring constant chkdisk to function. My sample size is indeed very small at 2 samples, but it is a 100% failure rate!

My comment is specifically about the MX100 512 GB drive.
Mine has been RMAed and replaced by Crucial with a MX300 500 GB drive which has so far been behaving very well. I also own a 256 GB version of the MX100 (2+ years now) and not had any problems with that either.

I just phoned my local Staples in Cardiff and they told me there are no Staples stores anymore and it's all office outlet now,even though they answered a phone number listed in Yell as being Staples.

Anyone actually gone to a store and got one of these yet?

Yes - and yes, there's no such thing as a Staples store anymore (they only trade online now). This offer is with Office Outlet in store only.
