Don't be fooled by the Mx brand on this, it should be a Bx model.

So still a bargain then. Thanks for that.

Good price.

Will do for me thanks OP

Great deal

Crucial, the company that took their SSDs and flushed them down the toilet

works out at £35 for 240gb, just to make a comparison. Very cheap and with the advantage of a large ssd all in one. In reality crucial does not make any ssd anymore so no sure about quality but still cheap

Are there any issues with these when transferring larger files or any other things worth knowing about? thanks.

Yes, apparently so.... Cheeky, I wonder how many people will buy this thinking it's MLC nand backed rather than the TLC garbage..

was thinking of getting rid of my mx200 but after some searching my mx200 is still top of the crop

but a very nice price for those looking for a SSD

Good point. Will skip this.
Trying to make my mind up between the 480GB Ultra II at £77
or the SSD Plus 240GB at 4pm (presumably around £40?)

I'm tempted / wondering too ... but can't help I'm afraid (just gonna watch this in case anyone else can!)

Looks good for the price, review here anandtech.com/sho…ves

i use the ultra 2's a lot and they are good solid drives. but no doubt others will think they are crap and fail loads etc etc but my opinion is they are a good value drive.

Probably only those wearing Anoraks

Crucial is owned by a different company now if im right...thats for those being scared by past reputation.

I ordered this just after midnight. I was looking at the 750 Evo or even paying a little more for an 850 Evo. My laptop HDD (1TB) died on Saturday. I couldn't live with 1 500GB drive (the 1TB Samsungs weren't discounted) so went for 750GB Crucial for £100 (I had the £10 Audible voucher from the other day) was too good to pass on.


I'll buy another external HDD for backups, but I'm happy.

Hoping this will be a decent upgrade on my XBone HDD by using in an external USB3.0 enclosure. Any reason to think otherwise?

Nope, they are owned by Micron.

Are you thinking of OCZ/Toshiba?

I have a Samsung 840 256Gb SSD in an enclosure to use with my Xbox One and most games do get a significant improvement in speed, some load upto 2x faster and some games can see FPS improvements like Fallout 4 due to the large amount of texture streaming.

We could potentially get even better performance but as we can only connect via USB 3.0 and not SATA 3 we are limited to the speed of USB 3.0, but it's still a hell of a lot faster than the internal or external mechanical HDD.

I'm very tempted to buy one of these drives for my Xbox One as it's a pain having to keep moving things back and forth from the SSD to make room.

LOL, people, just STOP thinking about SSD using HDD categories. Compare IOPS and not sequential read/writes, which are Windows swap file read/writes practically nowadays. There are thousands of small files, and not one 10 GB file in your system.

400/450 MB/s shows just ONE parameter: how close to SATA-3 saturation the drive is. Closer (better overall quality), or farer (cheaper option), that's all you can read between the lines as sequential RWs do not matter really with SATA simply because all of them are near physical limits.

All this talk of benchmarks avoids the real question that should be asked - how much difference between an SSD is actually going to make a difference to someone using it?

It's very noticable that reviews never address this properly, but give lots of nice numbers which could mean nothing in the real world.

even the oldest ssd (connected on sata 2 or even 1) would take the same loading times and perform the same on the desktop as the most expensive sata3 ssd in the market on a sata 3 connection. Sequential power is not an issue at all for everyday use and who cares if I need to wait few extra seconds to transfer a large file.

cloned drive to SSD...and boot speed now about 1/3 of old HDD!
using win7

happy days!
