Looking at camelcamelcamel, it has been cheaper before, but in the absence of other SSD deals, this isn't bad

Good price tbf, but im not too sure about the actual read/write speeds

Edit: seems to live up to advertised speeds, good deal

I bought one or these as an extra speedy drive for the xbox one. Running deus ex and doom great! I personally wouldn't rely on the brand for my pc though

No way I'm trust my data with King Dian or any other unknown monarch.

lol

Been a dearth of ssd deals of late in my budget just when i need one.
But for my pc i need something i can trust so i just have to wait i guess.

Shame SSDs have gone up so much recently, I wanted a 120 OS drive and the deals at about £20 now all seem to be £30+

Bought two cheers

Good price wish I bought when I just made my recent build.

I blame the price increases

BE interesting to know what controller is in there? also what brand of Nand .
some bechmarks from the drive when filled to 90%, and when it has been put into steady state.. all the benchmarks seem to be from fresh out of the box , 0% written, so no read,erase,write..
Not saying its not a good deal, but more info on the internals would be good. Especially as they used to use a jmf608 controller, which was very bad.

Deal my appeal to some, but in my experience with non-brand ssds, it is hit n miss! dont rely on them much with important stuff... when things go haywire, your best investment is amazon that will surely pay your money back, not sure about three year warranty, if you have to send it back to china... good luck... on face value it seems ok deal, but have seen better deals with better brands... also a good advice, dont rely too much on amazon reviews as there is tons of fake/paid reviews, dont underestimate chinese fakery...

The pound loses ~10% against the dollar and prices rise by ~50%? It's not the exchange rate I'd be blaming...

I think a lot of these reviews are for Kingxxxx products all lumped together.

chinese offer X amount of money and free stuff to buyers to write on certain websites (cough amaz...) and they get more discounts/gifts for further reviews (cough lies, over exaggerate)... i was offered discount and gifts for such reviews from some known chinese websites... i dont do such things, i only do confirm delivery and product worked and thats it... i hate it when people lie about something **** to get a few extra quid/gift, which comes back to bite them in the future...

also dont get me wrong, i dont own anything king... nor hate them, just wouldnt trust them for my/my clients' computer needs, as it too risky... unknown brand too much good review as if its too good to be true... only thing i would trust is amazon's word on repaying or replacing faulty stuff! point of good not always a good thing as the outcome is you need to replace something important when it breaks! like a critical component as hdd/ssd u may loose precious time and data... sometimes money isnt everythg

Lose =/= loose
I have never been offered any goods myself ... maybe you should buy one and test it out, put the vid up on utube??
Or if someone wants to send me one ??

Im the OP that posted the deal for same drive but on Aliexpress.

Here is a mini review
Order time & date: 06:11 Sep. 04 2016
Received yday (16/09/206)

12 DAYS FROM CHINA.

For those not familiar shopping from China, the package was sent via ePacket, this is like first class service from China. Package was tracked (all stuff from Aliexpress is tracked) and you'll get a text message from royal mail on the day they going to deliver it and another once its delivered. Really amazing service.

It arrived in a jiffy bag, the ssds are in a simple packaging.
You get a free pen, its quiet nice, I was dissapointed since I ordered two drives I was expecting two pens, oh well.

The drives are really nice, they are 7mm thin. The only other 2.5 inch drive that I've handled was a 9mm hdd (2.5 inch) and gosh I was wondering if its an empty shell. These thing weigh so small, I honestly thought its a toy.

I've just installed it on my machine and understand that my machine is a piece of sh**, my dad got it its an
amd e1-2100 1ghz.
I've heard that the speed of the machine has an effect on the drive speed?
anyway Everything went smoothly.

holy sh**, moving tabs in chrome is instant.
Remember my laptop is slow so I'm sure the speeds are not the best you would get on your laptop. They will be better and what I am seeing everyone else posting.

But seriously I cant believe I waited this long to take the plunge.

Okay a few notes. Every company has mistakes and the stats for kingdian are as follow
http://i.imgur.com/oX6LhF5.png

they are amazing! If your willing to wait an extra 9 days, order from aliexpress and you get 7.5% cashback from quidco (not guarenteed) but I think its worth it. I will be buying more for friends and family.

I hope it helps a few people
