Seen this was posted a few years ago, but it seems like a nice deal for 240gb.

Any feedback more than welcome

Holy moly, SSD prices have rocketed. Used to be like £25 for 120gb, this is so sad.

​That's what a mixture of NAND shortage and Brexit does

Yeah, they really have. They will come down again when we're not in the middle of a NAND shortage when GBP is (hopefully...) worth a bit more, but it's definitely going to be more of a medium term wait than a short term one.

In all honesty, I'd say that if you've managed to do without an SSD so far (bearing in mind they've been relatively affordable for mere mortals for 5+ years now), continue to do so. If you can wait for lower prices, do. If you cannot wait, buy in the knowledge that you're paying a lot in comparison to what SSDs have cost in the relatively recent past.

EDIT: For reference, I paid a fiver more than this for a 480GB SSD in summer 2016 and about 8 quid more than this for a 525GB SSD back in late November. It's a sad time to need to buy an SSD.

This has first-world problems written all over it

I think any issue involving an SSD is a first-world problem! X)

After all, an ancient 40GB piece of spinning rust will run Windows 7/8.1/10 and day to day, normal programs just fine.

Don't think that's possible, at least for the things I do on a PC. Games alone take more space (then again I'd use a HDD for that as space is limited on a SSD).

I'm glad in some way I built my PC early 2016, prices on parts have either stayed the same or risen (minus my GPU). Just hope I don't need another SSD anytime soon as it's so much more smoother than running off a mechanical drive, can't imagine life pre-SSD.

Yes, but huge 40GB+ games aren't "normal" programs for most people to have on their PC; I meant Windows plus stuff like MS Office and Chrome, not GTA V!

Parts prices have been horrible since the referendum and the drop in GBP value, SSDs and RAM have been hit doubly hard due to the shortages of components used to make them. GPU prices have been pretty unpleasant too; in the USA the reference 1080Ti is $50 more than the reference 980Ti was at launch ($649 vs $699), but about £150 more (£550 vs £700) here in the UK! Hopefully GBP recovers when they finish faffing about with Brexit.

I wouldn't fancy having spinning rust in my computers now, as of November last year I have no mechanical HDDs in my computers...it's wonderful, something I've been looking forward to since I bought my first SSD back in 2012.

Stop blaming Brexit for stuff, it hasnt even happend yet



​Its not blaming when it's clear that the pound has gone considerably weaker since the referendum

I ended up getting 120gb that was on here a while ago for £25. For me it was entirely worth the fact that windows starts in about 10 secs, but I think that is because I'm old enough now to remember turning on a PC making a cup of tea and coming back to Windows just loading. I only have Windows and Vegas Pro running on it, everything else is on a standard HD.

Don't mention the ridiculous price of ram! Oops

I've been thinking about getting a hybrid 2TB Seagate firecuda for around £95, anyone recommend or?

From experience, I think hybrid hard disks (SSHDs) are a total waste of time and are marketing over and above function. I would think you'll just get annoyed that they seem barely quicker than a hard disk most of the time. When I had mine as well, I would get micro-stuttering - every 5 seconds or so the computer would freeze for maybe 0.1 seconds but it would interrupt videos, moving the cursor, etc. In the end I put a pure SSD in it and wish I had done from day one. That was on a Seagate Momentus XT and it was widely documented on forums with no fix.
