Too small for anything meaningful. But good to clone old small size ssd …Too small for anything meaningful. But good to clone old small size ssd for backup.


Yes other than an install of Windows 10, Office, video editing software and 60GB free space, it's useless

I'd certainly suggest spending £25 for double the size but for an old PC this is the cheapest and most cost effective upgrade you can make.

I have 2tb ssds. This is only 120gb.


You could have 4TB SSD's, it still stands. 120GB is large enough for many many uses.

Not fast enough


It is quite slow for an SSD, the similar priced Integral P series would be much better but I suppose this will still be far better than any mechanical hard drive that it replaces.

Cheap as chips.
Yep, very cheap. Good find.

If it was 20GB I'd agree. But it isn't.

Only useful for the operating systems plus a few files, but again too slow to be of any use. It will be obsolete and so slow in 3 years time.

What a farce Prime is.
£16 for a 120gb ssd is about normal now, isn't it?

It's not a Prime exclusive, anyone can buy it.

Classic examples here of why some vote cold because it doesn't suit their specific needs.
Some people on here are commenting that it is not enough space.

It is enough space for older devices, not your main PC that probably has a 1TB or 2TB main drive.

This will boost an older laptop/PC and make it feel much more usable.

Good enough to install the OS and quite a few programs, I've saved friends and family a lot of money by just getting them to upgrade their Mechanical drive with a SSD, rather than buy a new laptop or PC when all they do with surf the internet and watch Youtube.

Lol what?

I have been using a 120 GB SSD for my windows 10 boot drive with lots of program files for about 5 years. No issues what so ever,

This is a bargain for a boot drive which is what makes the most difference / pound for PC speed.

If you cant afford a bigger one and dont have an SSD boot drive yet then just buy this and use it purely for a Windows boot drive. It will make a huge difference.

My 7 year old 64GB SSD disagrees with the sentiments of this thread.

Exactly what I am going to use it for!
Great price! Never thought they'd come down any further - thanks for the heads up OP!
Heat added!
A nice little drive for accelerating a Steam drive with Primocache or similar.

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Gigabyte-480GB-Serial-Solid-State/dp/B07MYGTVJZ/ref=pd_aw_sbs_7Faster and much more reliable.


And also three times the price which completely negates the whole point of this deal. You can get much better ones for that price.

Also not sure how exactly the same brand but 3 times the size is somehow more "reliable". Also it is only very slightly faster, 10% or less, not much at all.

This is the nuts for operating systems.

For those who are not running their OS on ssd it really is a no brainer, providing you can install at least a couple of hard drives.
Edited by: "homebanjo" 24th Jul
Not sure why people are saying this is too small. Clearly they have no idea what they're talking about.

Going from having everything on a hard drive, to having Windows installed on an SSD, and a hard drive for your files, for only 15 quid is the closest thing to a miracle upgrade there is in the PC hardware space. People often falsely attribute their computer being unresponsive to their CPU and RAM, when in reality, practically any computer less than 10 years old can be mostly cured with just a boot SSD.
Not too sure but every time I see an SSD on HotUKDeals, does anybody mention the crap Phison controller from usb sticks marking data recovery impossible and the fact it's dramless causes headaches with actually sustaining SSD-like speeds. I wouldn't recommend as a boot drive but as an secondary storage volume.

But it's cheap and I get that, so enough to revive a old laptop and maybe install a light weight distro where everything is done on the cloud nowadays.

The only additional benefit of getting an dramless ssd is for the no moving parts, you'll find over time the sustained speeds will decrease.

If you are going to choose a good ssd, here is a chart.

for some reason every time an Amazon deal is posted, HUKD staff or "helpers" feel the need to modify the title to include P&P charges (even though they don't do this for deals from anywhere else...).

it's really more confusing than it is helpful, but i suppose some people have nothing better to do.

They do it because not everyone has prime. It makes sense to me. Any deal posted should show the full price, and if not, let the mods know.

I always show the non prime price for amazon stuff under £20, even if it doesn't make it a deal without prime.

If you have to pay for delivery then that is the "true" price.
