this ssd has no dram so you get "ssd speed" only up to a point and then it falls off a cliff. Worth considering spending just a little bit more

Good deal OP. Heat added.

I have a question I hope someone can answer please.
Recently purchased a refurbished Lenovo Thinkpad T420 with the idea of upgrading it. It’s already got a 128SSD drive in it. Would I be able to replace the dvd drive & put this in its place as a 2nd drive?. Maybe with a caddy or something. Just wondering. Any help much appreciated. Thanks.

SSD prices look to be falling, should wait for further price fall on other models?

Actually, SSDs price are rocketing but this has become all time lowest. If you check the previous deals on SSDs, those are all higher price than previous deals ... So, it's unpredictable.

SSD prices coming down again. Wonder if they'll be the new norm soon? Only issue is the potentially more limited lifespan.

Thanks OP. Helped me a bit. Appreciated.

Crucial website configurator says it’s compatible. Showing OOS on their website. £91.19 anyway if it was in stock.

Just to help with this. You'd be better of placing this SSD in the primary slot and using the other drive as a back up drive in the T420 DVD bay. Many of the cheaper DVD slot adaptors tend to be the limiting factor in the speed you'll get out of the drive (both the DVD bay and Hdd slot are SATA III but the adaptors can be hit and miss in achieving those speeds.

It's pretty easy to stick this in the DVD slot, clone your existing disk to it and then swap the drives around to get peak performance. It's also worth adding that your 128gb disk will probably be slower than a larger capacity drive like this one so you'll enjoy even faster start ups and programs loading.

I personally tend to relegate smaller disks like your one to back up drives in machines I have for dumping duplicates of photos pending them uploading to my server or the cloud.
Nice!

Don't forget code 'MYDISCOUNT5' for a fiver off too (account specific).

If available the 5 month payment plan is welcomed in these testing times (again may be account specific)
Damn, that's good!? I've just ordered one. Nice find OP

I doubt it, I've only ever come across such a thing on maybe like 1 model of Dell Laptop some years ago.

Damn will check with my 240GB SDD later. From what I'm reading I only use this to store data I want quickly, writing to it isn't my concern so I should be okay. Cancelled my order too many neg reviews and complaints about installing games .

Thanks. Read this & kind of put off now. Great price though for a 1tb SSD.

It should be fairly simple to do so. Connect a few cables and you're flying. I would recommend watching a YouTube video on it to see if you feel comfortable doing so.

Frankly this thing looks like a bit of a squib. The issues with background garbage collection on ssd's has cause my work in the past to write them off as 'dead' as they become so so slow.

Lots of space for sure, but if your write speed dips to 49Mb/s, what is the point?

Looks like this just effects write speed right?

I'm looking for something to add to mine pc to chuck some extra games on and with decent read speed for £27 (240gb) it seems pretty decent.

I went for a Crucial MX500. Overall good reviews for the price.
OOS.

still waiting on a 2tb mx500 or evo at good price :/

admittedly depends on one's definition of "a little bit more". MX500 for around £99 as the commenter above (I bought one too). The WD Blue is also decent.

If you want proper speed and longevity, avoid QLC drives.

And a QLC drive being the one in the original deal?..
