Great for a low cost gaming pc, Heat

Put this in my cheap laptop, stupid high sata 3 speeds, think it was about 530 read or write can't remember, not very technical, but paid 25 for it on amazon, best purchase ever

5% off code doesn't work. Means previous price of £24.99 -5% would be cheaper. Can confirm it is a decent performing drive

bought 5 of these for various laptops I'm refurbishing, great bargain!
the previous code doesn't work but £23.99 still a fantastic price

purchased thanks.

Thanks. Time to swap out my dad's mechanical drive for an SSD.

Great price for a great little drive , perfect as a boot drive on my gaming PC , freed up my 480gb and my 240gb for game installs....perfect

Nonsense.

This SSD is a brilliant cheap-as-chips upgrade for an older PC, where it can be used for the OS and apps while retaining the original HDD for bulk storage. 120GB is plenty for this usage scenario.

Would I be able to swap the hard drive in my netbook for one of these?

Hot, but I don't have much trust in the Integral brand, I have two 85MB read / 95MB write SD cards and they intermittently have write errors. I'd personally only use an Integral SSD as an OS drive without any important data.

Would I be able to swap the hard drive in my netbook for one of these?


as far as I know, Netbooks take 1.8' hard drives and not 2.5 - which this offer is. google your model number to check the specs.

no it's not... after OS install you are left with about 90gb of real space.. 1 large game installion is like 45-50gb these days already.. If you got to download that game and install it after that you can't even do it with this ssd
240gb however is just perfect and can be had for like what £15-£20 more?
Don't skimp on this you will regret later on...

Yes this should be possible. Most netbooks take 2.5" disks, not 1.8" disks. Some really old ones didn't take 2.5" disks. The problem can be gaining access. While some have trap doors at bottom, others have the disk under the keyboard or the worst kind you must take off the palmrest. One acer netbook I fixed went to the college of stupid design and had a trap door, but it could only be opened by releasing it from under the keyboard.

I would use this as a boot drive and use a secondary hard drive (eg. 2TB) for games and other applications.

Please avoid if possible - purchase this a few weeks ago - had to return due to SSD freezing and random errors , resulting in slow read/write.

'like £20 more' is 83% more. If it was 'like £20 more' on a product that cost £1000 then you would have a point but this is £24.

120gb is great as a starter drive to put your OS, a few small games, office etc on.

Would I be able to swap the hard drive in my netbook for one of these?


Yes. I have recently installed one in my Acer netbook and it given it a real boost. I am a bit more wary about installing one in my Asus Eee 1005 because I have to dissemble to computer rather than unscrewing a hatch...

You do know PCs can be used for more than just gaming, right?

Mine has been in for 2 weeks, solid as a rock
No errors, great purchase.
You could get errors and Samsung or SanDisk, one or 2 people out of thousands is not an issue.
Nothing online about serious problems or errors

Jokes on you I only now have laptop which isn't able to run any of those games

Bought one for my bro's new gaming PC. 120gb is more than plenty for OS and one or two games he will be playing. Don't see why you need a huge ssd for all your games, just have the games you play installed and when you change delete them or move them to a HDD.

Stop comparing SSDs using old HDD_like sequential R/W speeds It's all about IOPS.
By the way, purchased one for my son few weeks ago, it was a little bit more expensive, but still under 30. So far so good.

It's not massive but it's the kind of thing you could use in a Netbook. To say it would improve their performance is an understatement.

What about speeds? AS SSD is producing these results. What's everyone think? I'm absolutely nowhere near the "WRITE 420MB/s" speed.

First one was without using AHCI, second one with Microsoft AHCI driver (but I still think something isn't right...especially read access time), third one is with AMD SATA driver/controller.

This was the original benchmark screenshot in an old thread. (supposedly)

I'm still researching but I'm on Windows 7 so maybe I'm losing performance. Any thoughts as to why my access read time would be so high?

Anyone tried using the Intel driver (iaStor)?

It would be real handy if someone else (or everyone) could post screenshots of AS SSD results.

Can you list your motherboard model?

Brilliant just ordered one ,

120gb is wayyy too little for anything


Utterly buttery, tons of Windows tablets on hotukdeals listed with 32GB eMMC.

Can you list your motherboard model?



Yeah it's a MSI 990FXA-GD65 AM3+ ---- msi.com/Mot…tml

On the debate about 120GB, remember you should keep at least 15% of the drive free as the performance drops when the cells fill up.

Personally I've got Windows 7, Fallout 4 and Alien Isolation and I'm down to the 15% left.

Going by your 3rd pic, it seems you are pretty close to the rated speeds..

Make sure you got the ssd plugged into the right sata port on motherboard for best speeds

the comments from the horders saying that it's not enough space!. Windows 10 installed uses what, 40GB? and that's bloated
I gave up hording years ago when broadband went over 50Mbps and I dont get laptop users who insist on carrying around their life's photo and video collection with them

I've got a feeling that it's plugged into SATA port 2 but not sure that it should matter since all the ports are 6Gb.

Read access time of 0.2 still has me concerned as well, 4 times higher than someone else supposedly got.

Could really do with someone else posting AS SSD benchmarks.
