Cant seem to see the price from last year. So not sure if this is the lowest.
This is a new model hence not much price history.
Gets good reviews.

didn't know that! was about to vote cold before you mentioned its the newer model
Not prime only.
Voted hot. Has been this price since last month
Same price direct from crucial
This is a good price as it is the newer model. According to Anandtech, it is faster than the 850 EVO
This post is not a offer price its the normal price of item
Cold, should be 15 or more quid cheaper!
This was TechPowerUp's SSD of 2017. So heat.

No offence intended: is it a wild guess or Met Office prediction, similar to £ exchange rate?
It's £114.99 now!

Can this be used as a backup disk by pairing with an external drive case. I am not tech savvy enough unfortunately. Thanks!

It can be but you might as well get a portable mechanical one that might work out cheaper.

Thanks. Does a SSD come out more reliable than a mechanical HDD. Have previously suffered data loss due to a failed HDD.

In my opinion they are probably about the same. HDD has more mechanical parts that can fail and ssd's have transistors and capacitors that could fail. Plus SSD's have a limited number of read write ops that you can perform. But I would not use an SSD as a backup device due to costs vs storage required, as I need atleast 6TB+ if not more, in which case an SSD is not great value for money. Also it depends on how frequently you are going to perform read/write operations on the drives. Also I read somewhere that its easier to recover data from an HDD, not sure if SSD data is easily recoverable.
