Good old VAT fraud from mymemory. Shipped from Switzerland and under-invoiced at £14.99 on the customs delcaration.
Excuse, we deduct an admin charge to reduce the price for customs. HMRC said this was not allowed.

But, this is a good deal.

If you're that upset by it, why dont you pay the equivalent customs duty to the HMRC with your order?

I, on the other hand, strongly believe that we already pay too much Tax/VAT - so fully support their shipment method!

I put one in my gf's Laptop at the weekend, timed powering on and opening a webpage at 4 mins 28 seconds first which was unusable really...reduced it to 25 seconds :-D

Best boycott Apple, Google, Amazon, eBay, Netflix, Starbucks, etc. for tax avoidance.

How dare this small company commit such an offence!

As long as your desktop has SATA your good to go. Unless it's a really old machine you should be fine.
I can't recommend these drives highly enough if you have an old machine that is at a crawl due to an ancient HDD and not worth much one of these will bring it back to life for very little money. I put one in a 10 year old Dell Vostro that was unbearably slow and practically useless due to the HDD seemingly on it's last legs at 10 years old put a fresh copy of Win 10 on it and it has a new lease of life for the kids to use for web/youtube.

Just Google full name of you hard drive to see what interface it has first.
Got one last week........just as others have said, turned my laptop into a beast!!! Fresh install of windows 10 and a new SSD does wonders!
Is 120GB really worth it? It takes up a 2.5" slot. People say it has vastly improved their boot-up times which, the SSD would do, but it is also the affect of re-installing Win10 that has had just as much improvement on the boot-up times. I just feel 120GB is a waste of a slot.
Will this work in a macbook?

Depends on what you use your machine for. Most will use for general browsing/streaming, and this will bring a new lease of life to any aging laptop/desktop.

It's obviously isn't the answer if you need lots of space.
I've had two of these so far and they are superb, boot times vastly improved over mechanical drives. I simply copied my OS from one drive to another using Macrium reflect, took 1hr. Simply followed the steps online then once completed, I went into the bios changed boot order and used computer management to clear the old drive
Replaced my mother's slowly failing 500GB mechanical drive with one of these last week. Significant improvement in performance.

However in the previous deal posted for these someone mentioned that these are DRAM-less drives do eventually won't be as fast as other SSD as it will have to store info on where files are on the disk on the actual disk itself.
Having said that it should be more than enough for most casual users.

I’m not so sure. You declare the ex VAT value at your end, so £15 ex VAT is feasible for the price they might have paid. It’s like when we ship laptops by Royal Mail, for insurance and international shipping you only declare the price you were invoiced not the price you sold it for. That’s what I’d rather think anyway. Are you that bothered anyway, it’s a small amount of money (not grand scale fraud even if it is) and you get an SSD brand new for £24.

SSDs have been the single biggest performance boost in the last 10 years for PCs. I can’t count the number of PCs I have renewed with a cheap SSD - most of ours are Sandy and Ivy Bridge era but still hold their own today. I bet manufacturers hate these things! I use a Dell XPS 27 at work and have zero incentive to upgrade - 27” WQHD IPS display, 16GB RAM, quad core CPU and an SSD I fitted 3 years ago to top it off.

Yes
Heat added. 2 bought the last time. Another 2 bought again. Thanks op
Have an old PC that could use this. Currently on a SATA HDD. Just a case of buying a 3.5" caddy and away you go?
Any advice?

Bought a second and computer on ebay before Christmas for my dad and can't check...but googled the system and it uses SATA so i've bought one :-)
Best way to put win10 on please ?
I tried the media toolkit to usb but got "problem running the error"; tried various google suggestions, to no avail.

Anyone have a tried and trusted win10 update route?

You can use that same program to create a bootable iso and burn it onto a disc. Obviously the system you'll be installing it onto will need a disc drive.

yes its dramless, which causes micro stutter and on large files it reduces it down to 120GB/s to 80GB/s transfer, that doesn't seem bad but compared to tosh 3tb p300 (nearly 50% full) which substain 150GB/s you see the issue

that transfer was from a 500gb 850 evo to the above drive and also a p300 tosh.

from the 120gp p to the 850 - 300GB/s +
The above results are taken from when the caching runs out .

but for average user this shouldn't matter, as you aren't moving 19gb files routinely

but for your mother's pc its fine

I cloned my Win 10 drive and put it in another machine.

I partition the drive so you have one partition for the O/S and one for your data and another for anything else.
With a small 120GB, may be 30GB for the O/S is the maxiimum and 2 partitions are enough.

I far prefer this method as it makes data backup easier.
Ordered! I'm glad I played the waiting game seeing this deal. Hopefully it breathes some new life into my Mac Mini and its dated mechanical drive. I'll be running this as the boot drive for OSX externally, so now I just need to get myself a SATA to USB cable purchased as well and I'm ready to go!

Don’t need it but ordered cheers OP
4% Quidco too. Thanks OP.
Nice spot OP.Ordered.

I just want to use it as backup and Dont want to boot from it. Just nned to know if it will fit and work. Thnaks in advance
Ordered from the previous post, simple sata plug and play. After having my dog spill chocolate milkshake into the computer and fortunately only ruining the hardrive, I was able to replace it with this, boot up windows ten from USB and chuck in an old hard drive I'd removed from my ps4 pro and job was a goodun. Awesome £ per GB
Have i just woken up from a 2 year sleep?!? The good old days are back !! Just in time for the nuclear war with Russia.
Put mine in a PS3, frees up the old 160GB drive for use in my mum's laptop. Although tbh should probably put an SSD in there too.

I did this couple of days ago with my very old Lenovo b570 laptop (i3, 3 GB RAM). Used an 8 GB usb key (may need to go into Device Manager and drop any partitions in the usb key, if you have them used for Ubuntu / UNRAID etc like I did).

Downloaded the Media toolkit, went thru the options, and it quickly created the bootable key (downloading image took 10-20 mins, 4gb). Installed the SSD Drive, and restarted with USB key plugged in (F2 and checked the bios, but it was already set up to boot from USB). Windows started installing fresh - it asked for key - said "I don't have it" or "later" or something like that - installation went thru - and once it updated itself, it had identified the license from their digital database and everything was working 100%.

Laptop is flying now - seriously impressed with the SSD performance over the other hard drive.

You don't need a caddy just put it on the floor of your case, ssds have no moving parts so it's fine.

Same issue trying to create a usb iso on my acer laptop.
Did it on another win10 laptop I have (Toshiba) and worked fine. Inserted ssd into the acer and booted from usb ok
Surely you would still mount it though in view of heat dissipation etc? Can't be best practice to leave any product just sitting on the floor of a unit?

If it's 20GB, it might be EIDE in which case this won't fit. Just buy a new case if you want to make this external, though it seems a bit of a waste TBH.

I would mount it but it doesn't matter, it puts out no/little heat. I would just get annoyed if I moved the PC and forgot it wasn't bolted in then had this pendulum swinging around whacking things inside the PC. Even duct tape to the side bit would be fine. Personally, I always screw things in where I can.

Not sure if I am allowed to post this, but here is a cheap 2.5" to 3.5" SSD to HDD Adapter Metal Mounting Bracket if anyone is interested. There are cheaper ones made of plastic, but I would prefer metal myself.
