About this deal

I was looking for a reliable, well-priced SSD to breath some new life (and space) into an older laptop, and came across this.

It was about 50p cheaper back in August, but about £25 cheaper than it was this time last year.

With things being tight right now, it's a very affordable way to make a big improvement to an old laptop that still has a mechanical HDD. You can pay another £25 for the extra 500MB, but I think this is a great price point for most users.


Also looks like free delivery, even without Prime

    "These are very poor drives"

    Im not following you.

    There are 48,857 reviews, of which a huge 95% of them give the drive 4 or 5 stars out of 5 - thats nearly 46,500 out of just over 48,500 glowing reviews.
    Id take my chances with any purchase having such a high review average...

    48,857 people, the vast majority of which aren't knowledgeable in this space and aren't comparing like-for-like against other drives, they're comparing against not having a drive or whatever they were using before. Amazon reviews are great, but a) they're easily gamed and b) it's also worth looking at reviews by professionals, as linked above.

    These are very poor drives and based on this review you will find better at lower priices:
    This is reviewed below and is cheaper.

    Kioxia is the new name for Toshiba's SSD division which they sold off and they make some decent value drives,

    Bought one of these before Christmas, it was DOA. Sent back & got a replacement, worked for 3 days then died, thankfully I still have the original drive I cloned onto it. Now on drive No 3 so hoping third time will be a charm !
