Cheapest price for a 240GB SSD that I can find at the moment and from a UK-based eBay business seller with good feedback.

Despite not being a major brand they are manufactured with Hynix MLC flash and seem to perform quite well. Looks good as a cheap option to speed up an old laptop or desktop.

Last time one of these drives was posted on HUKD ales197 posted the following CrystalDisk results: imgur.com/UKN…7Vh and a full review of the drive can be found here: http://www.enostech.com/drevo-x1-240gb-ssd-review/

These are not new drives but used

why cold?

It's not the flash you have to worry about, it's the firmware and other support.

When these sorts of things were £15+ cheaper they were worth a punt, but at a £5 saving they're not worth the hassle if anything goes wrong. Or even if you just want to sell them and discover there's no secure erase tool available.

these are great drives I have used well over 100 and zero failures or problems

These are used! - will it come with any software to clone my existing HD - how do I go about that?

£6 more for the AMD ssd drive, plus you're not buying from a character from Monty Python.

A used SSD, you have to be joking, these things have a read/write cycle life, you have no idea how much a used SSD has been hammered. Pay the extra and buy new.

Most available commercial software is **** or at very least overpriced, I would almost always use the free Clonezilla unless I was shrinking a large volume to a smaller drive.

AMD drives mostly use Toshiba flash. The newer stuff is pretty good but until quite recently they were surprisingly awful for such a large scale manufacturer. Akin to Seagate's hard drives from 4-5 years ago.
