Honestly i have always found ebuyer fantastic when it comes to warranty returns.
On one occasion they even upgraded me foc to a better spec item and shipped it next day delivery too.
What has your experience been with them ?
The 5 year warranty is with Crucial.

Warranty is with crucial and in my experience they are great.
Ssd prices are really coming down lately! Is it time to upgrade the 500gb 850 evo?

Hmm I've got a lenovo ThinkPad x60. The original hard drive has bad clusters. I want to replace the old hdd with a ssd. Will this work or do I have to specifically go for a sata '1' ssd drive?

As long as it's a 2.5" drive in it then it'll work fine. If it's not SATA3 then you just won't get the full speed benefits of an SSD (although it'll still be close because SSD's don't max out SATA connections), still will be a lot faster than a HDD.

Should work fine as the SSD will be backwards compatible. You won't get the full benefit of the SSD at SATA I speeds but it will be considerably faster than what you get with the current mechanical hard drive
cracking price

but dont need one this size

i wanted one for ages for ps4 and or xbox 1 but the performance gains are pretty rubbish and i dont understand why that is, the gains on pcs and laptops are great compared to traditional hard dries so why arent they abel to show that performance leap on consoles they should be fantastic
As others have said Crucial's support is top notch. I don't think I've ever seen anyone complain about them which is a rarity in itself.

Might be worth waiting a few months though we've had no SSD deals for ages and all of a sudden they are everywhere. Supply issues seem to be alleviating early then predicted.
Excellent price, unfortunately I want the M.2 2280 version of this..
Ebuyer through Topcashback = 1.57% should take it down to around £200.80

Not to another 2.5" SSD, unless you find that 500GB isn't enough for OS+games. If you want an actual performance upgrade get an NVME drive

Surely you'd be better off spending an extra £100 and get a new laptop with a smaller SSD? Unless you really need 1tb of storage... even then an external drive and a new laptop would work out better!
Cold, since ebuyer.

It depends what you're comparing. The non pro PS4 runs an older version of the SATA protocol, which means it's a bit more limited. The Pro can have improvements though:

eurogamer.net/art…e_9

Games on consoles are typically well optimised for load speeds anyway (it's normally built into the SDK). Tricks such as bundling lots of smaller files into larger ones (much like the old DOOM days of WAD files) and having the files in a certain order, so they can be loaded faster are already done.
You also need to take into account that both the PS4 and Xbox One are are not really high end. The pro's / X are better of course.

Some games like the Witcher 3 have fairly big differences though. It's very situational.
Here is the link to my post for the Amazon deal if you prefer that supplier.

Not quite true. Several people had problems with the MX100 randomly disconnecting itself and disappearing after a re-boot. That issue was never fixed by Crucial. (A workaround was to set the SATA port to hot-swappable.)

Thanks I hadn't heard about that. No company remains without a black mark I guess :(.

Was a big customer of ebuyer for about 15 years, I also never had a problem with ebuyer, then sent a tablet back after 7 months after the battery packed in, wasn't worried about it as the tablet was advised as having a 12 month warranty, it was then I found out that they're returns policy had changed, I wanted to have a replacement but they were out of stock, so I was given a 2/3rds refund, I couldn't return the tablet to the manufacturer as they had no presents in the EU, I have never used ebuyer since and never will.

The PS4/Xbox One OS isn't designed to make the most out of SSDs basically, so even the Pro/X version don't show the same improvements as a PC would do.
It is now cheaper on Amazon @ £203.46. Here is the link:

Thanks for the suggestion, i kind of want to hold on to the lenovo x60 for some reason, although the tech is so out of date, it was a very portable business laptop of its time... constraint is it won't be able to handle new OS's / software. BUt the laptop is in superb condition, maybe keep it as an antique?

The thing is... every time you purchase a new item (TV, Laptop, Phone etc) it is always the best one you've ever had.

As soon as you purchase a new laptop and use it for a short period of time you'll wonder what you were doing with the x60
Uuugggghhhhh... I dont need it... Hard drive is fine... I WANT IT... But no dosh
Updated the price due to price drop.
Price dropped to £202.80
