Would you choose this over a Samsung 850 EVO at this price? I dunno what to go for.

times change the 120gb one was under 30 quid last year

I'm waiting until next year when prices are predicted to return to previous levels.

We just need people to thumb these prices down, once people stop buying them they will soon reduce their prices.

So if someone wants a ssd now, by down voting all ssds that yes are expensive atm he's still going to go out and buy one. So you will deny the chance of getting deal in the current market.

Like I am building a my first rig and i need a ssd. I am not waiting however long with a slow pc.

Can't believe the prices, best deal I had was a b grade 850 EVO 500gb from overclockers for £90. See them going for £120 on eBay !!

we won't see any movement on ssd's till next year, a recent fire at one of the fabs just didn't help at all. Chips basically take 3 to 4 months to make...

On the other hand Samsung has just brought online one of the most expensive chip factorys (not Mccains) which is expected to be dedicated to NAND initially. £19B ... We could have two point five of them OR HS2.
RPMANU I'd go for samsung every time ..

Yeah but still going to have to wait a few month before it produces anything for ssds? I can't wait that long without a ssd it's so frustrating.

Samsung 850 every time unless there's a bigger difference in price, sure it's more money but you'll have this for 5 years probably so another £20 over that period makes it a non brainer in my opinion. If this was £50 and the Samsung £100 then I'd probably get this for non important machines.

That's the logic I was thinking but as this was a V2 I didn't know if anyone had more knowledge on it. Thanks guys

What fire, another one, since when?..

The factory fire that I remember was years ago, and it wasn't even in the manufacturing wing that produced the memory or stored it's supplies.

From what I remember all that hype back then was was to produce inflation in prices, as memory prices were at an all time low back then.

I reckon they started a fire in a section of the manufacturing complex, because conveniently the actual fire didn't actually effect supplies or the production side of things yet all of a sudden they were able to inflate their prices big time over night.


Theirs was an article about that fire where the director of the plant clearly stated in an interview that no production line took damage, or had been effected.

So the rise in prices back then in my opinion was very likely based on fear mongering traders and panicking share holders.

That whole situation was probably some BS manoeuvre to hype up the prices, because memory and HDD pretty much doubled over night when that happened.

I thought the reduction in supply this time around is based on the main manufactures of all memory are focusing on developing newer technology chips, which meant they would be pushing all their recourses in to that and as a result less production in to the current stuff.
