Please feel free to post your URLs to all of these supposed high failure rate claims; remembering to include the actual device model numbers that were tested, along with hardware versions and firmware versions just be clear. X)

Its best to do that, as the last thing you want is other HUKD members thinking you're fear mongering and trying to ruin someone's opportunity to get a deal or the OPS opportunity to get some heat.

Proof please, none of this!

failure rate on these is quite high, a friend bought 4, 3 failed.
placed an order last time it was posted, stil have to receive it. Mymemory says to wait 17 days
Installed three of these, no problems so far. They are super quick, when compared to a conventional hard drive.
could I stick this in a case, add a Y cable and plug it in to a Wii U?
got mine didn't realise it was coming from Switzerland came really fast very pleased put into a lenovo x220 for my daughter that I took the ssd out of but then didn't realise it needed a 7mm drive so could only refit an ssd seems a good drive
Installed one of these yesterday which I got from the deal a few weeks ago. Getting the speeds quoted in the specs.

Throw away price for a first SSD for those who want to see the speed improvements.
How easy is it to claim warranty from Integral?
Bought one of these from Amazon, partially paid for using the £15 Amazon voucher from Halfrauds Autocentre (for buying Dunlop Sport BluResponse tyres). Boot time of my PC is now significantly faster than before. Previously I was using a standard hard drive.

Its possible that your friend might be a mere nincompoop?.. X)

- I got this for £22.34 (TCB)

- This comes with 3 Year Warranty, worst case it can ever cost me is £22.34 X)

- £22.34 divided by the 3 years warranty = £7.44 per year (less than a box of cigarettes a year)

- Data loss and drive failure is an issue on even the most expensive drives. Rule of thumb, always backup critical data in multiple locations even on the most expensive devices.

- Data failure is not an issue for me as this will be getting used as cache anyway. Now show me 128GB SSD with up to 565MB/s Read and up to 420MB/s Write for £22.34 with 3 Years warranty delivered to my door.

My mate Dave knows a man, that knows a man, who's uncle's friends nephews step son said these drives are awesome.. So if him and his neighbours mate says so it must be true (globally). FACT!

Illuminati confirmed!
I have bought loads of these for clients laptops and pcs and everyone has been spot on....(touch wood). How can you moan about a drive for that price and that warranty. always use a backup anyway.
Use these little drives in an external enclosure for MySQL scratch. No problems with this so far (ordered mine off of the last deal)...

You just blew my mind.
I bought two of these to try in Raid 0, on my spare 4790K system. Getting over 1000 MB/s read and write speeds. Very impressive for under £47 and 240GB capacity.

What reported failure rates?
Mine is working fine. 100%.

​I've been using two 120GB OCZ Vertex IIIs in RAID0 for over for years with same read speed 1GB/s+ in Windows and linux (dual boot). I know the failure rate of OCZs and concede I'm probably an exception to the rule, but I would hope that like me everyone else with such a setup will be storing and backing up precious files onto slower, higher capacity HDDs. booting an OS in 5 seconds, for me, outweighs the inevitable (but replaceable) failure of lowly rated SSDs.

Like with any Raid configuration, regular backing up is always wise.

These drives have a few years warranty so if they hold up that long, they will have been worth the low cost. At this price, I might get a few more to play around with. Not really risking much at this price.
Not a bad deal for a 120GB SSD. Heat added.
Anyone know if there is an Integral utility for checking firmware, upgrading firmware and performing TRIM operations?
Just ordered. Very nice deal. Thanks for posting!
May use this on my smart TV for recording, does anyone know of a good case that would do this drive justice?

Thanks, purchased one to replace a slow HD in a PC that doesn't do anything important.

This is perfect.
I can't find anything about failure rates. Scaremongering perhaps?

Try another browser, I just checked for you and its still working. Try on your mobile or something..
Probably a stupid question, but;
If i currently have a system with a 750gb HDD, can i create an image (macramim? [spelling/invented name?!]) so long as i'm using under 120gb of storage, and mirror the image onto this drive (so i don't have to reinstall)?
thanks

I've never tried doing this myself, but from what I've heard I believe to clone a drive you will need the source partition (the one you want to copy) to be the same size or smaller than the target partition (where you want to copy to). In your case, if you have a single Windows partition on your 750GB drive and plan on having a single 120GB partition on this Integral, you would first need to shrink your current partition to 120GB or less. There are plenty of free tools that can do all of this (Easeus Partition Manager for one, I believe).

No you don't do it that way, you clone your install on to the SSD, as long as it will fit of course. Two reliable tools that can do this are Macrium Reflect and EaseUS >

Excellent, I wanted a cheap and small drive for my arcade cabinet.

Well, if you're happy for it to die then so be it but I would rather have something reliable.

try this free copier.
I use it and its simple and foolproof,has to be fro me to use it :-)
So long as the disc you want to clone has less than 120gb of date on including the O/S you wont have a problem

Once again, where are the reports of unreliability? Not much point in saying this stuff with nothing to back it up.
