a regular 2.5" SATA Sandisk x400 SSD in these enclosure apparently
£94.95 on ebay brand new
Amazon probably easier for returns if the cable/connector breaks as sometimes happens with portable devices like these but there are only 5 left in stock.

Link to ebay for £94.95

Quite tempting, can you just take it apart and end up with a 500GB SATA Sandisk for £95?
Tempted if only as a more secure back up device. Only 1 review on the Amazon post.
Ordered one, many thanks also the Thorntons chocs ( 6boxes) the Amazon deal on Ferrero's (12 boxes) the bluedio headphones (7 of these for kids n g/kids) Got some stuff from Sports Direct (despite the quite correct? hate mail for this company) beef, lamb and pork deals (full freezer now) too many more to number. Watching the telly deals at the moment (got a 3d HD Panasonic, 3 years old, thanks for that one HUKD ) . but hey look at them prices. Been bothering John Lewis for price matches all day (thanks for THAT one too, so much fun) Not had a drink for 37 years . Aint sobriety WONDERFUL. s Taifooey

These drives have got a Sandisk X400 SSD inside them 512GB to be precise .
techradar.com/rev…0gb

So at £86 a pop ...this is an Amazing deal ATM from the ebay seller. Where would you get a corporate standard 512GB SSD for this price ..anywhere ?
BTW just grabbed another 1 of these Bad boys for around £71 ... as I got a £15 discount code of ebay for orders over £75.
I am really pleased ......But even at £86 now..it is a true bargain not to be missed. ....it could be getting very hot in here.

The drive is definitely not soldered? Tempted.

I'm looking right now at the ssd on my desk .

Update: Can confirm 100% that the drive can be take out and is not soldered :=) I just opened it carefully and it is 100% solder free.
you just very gently need to pry away the top casing from the base ...eg: the part you are prying off is the G SDD logo on it. That's the one needed to be pry off gently as there are a number off tabs...Once you take the top off ,you need to gentle lift the drive free from bottom and peel away gently the copper sleeve . You also get the bonus of reusing the drive case with a smaller SSD .

SANDISK
X400 SSD SATA 2.5 512GB

BTW to people who are unsure of this drives quality or performance...They are used in corporate equipment and are so robust they carry a 5 years warranty when sold as retail versions ....You still get 3 years warranty ...So make sure you keep the caddy handy if you dissasemble for insurance.

Best Regards
