Alternative to the sandisk deal, has better read/write speeds.

- SATA-III Technolgy
- Read 535MB/s Write 480MB/s
- 3 Year Warranty

Kingston’s SSDNow V+200 features a second-generation SATA-III SandForce processor for best-in-class sequential read/write speeds combined with asynchronous NAND for exceptional quality and performance at an affordable price. It’s the perfect balance of performance and affordability and easy to integrate into corporate asset refresh cycles.

Because data integrity is important, you need to make sure the SSD you choose takes data protection seriously. V+200 offers data integrity protection that features DuraClass Technology plus RAISE for advanced data reliability. It’s designed to negate the performance impact of software encryption, so you can regain the performance lost and increase your user experience.

Most business systems are SATA-II, but the V+200 is SATA-III and backwards compatible all the way to SATA-I. It therefore allows you the flexibility to future-proof your purchase.

V+200 comes with a three-year warranty, 24/7 technical support and legendary Kingston reliability.

nice find
thanks, cancelled my "awaiting stock" play.com order for the 60Gb version and went for this instead, heated
Hot especially compared to the Sandisk Sata 2 deal which hit over 1300. Question is jump in now or wait another week to see if it drops further.
heat added for the price..X)
Guys please help

my Dell Vostro 1520 laptop hard disk is Hitachi hts723225l9a362 ata

geeks.com/det…W-R

Can I buy this SSD to upgrade my laptop? and if yes will make any difference given that my current traditional Hitachi is 7200RPM 8MB ?

Thanks in advance.
Will make a big difference. I have the Vostro 1500 also with a 7200 drive in it looking at a SSD myself for the next stage of my laptop upgrade.
Better read/write speeds than which Sandisk drive? I've only seen posts about the "Extreme" models, which are faster than this Kingston drive. Also read a lot of bad press about Kingston drives and their reliability and the company offering no support or RMA, but not sure if that was about this same model or not.

Would rather go for this deal for an extra £8, faster speeds (better NAND type) and good reviews - hotukdeals.com/dea…127 . Shall be picking up the 240GB version at the end of the week from Sc@n unless a better deal pops up before then!
HEAT!! Just ordered, wasnt going but recently started to process photos so this should help with photoshop.
i ordered one too Thx

Realistically you are going to find it next to impossible to judge performance on these drives apart. All of them - even older ones - are just lightyears ahead of what you are used to.
I dont understand why it is so important for you people to boot computer in 15s or so, and invest in small ssd instead or hdd with higher capacity. I have tried ssd and it makes no other difference except boot time in my laptop. But I lost my 650GB hdd, cant cope with 128GB,so my old hdd is back and does the job very well.

They make a huge difference when used as a scratch disc in Photoshop, and as a drive for Lightroom file storage. Cumulatively, this saves me loads of time in my day to day work. Lightroom has a habit of being crap on regular drives, but the SSD sorted it right out.

Lightroom sucks pretty bad for me (not as bad as aperture though) but i don't see how this would help as my raw files are all off on external drives, it wouldn't take long to fill this with raw images??

Its not just about booting machines up in 15s...

Better read/write speeds of a drive mean overall performance of your machine will increase its that simple. I bought an SSD to use as a system disk and try to store as much data as possible on another standard HD. At the moment buying SSD's to store large amounts of data is pretty pointless though when you can get so much more bang for your buck.

OK,agree with you,thats true. But how many use them? Maybe 1 in 10 or less,others just spend extra,sacrificing disc spase in big hopes that they old computer will be lighting fast...then most of older pc`s and almost all laptops do not support SATA III. Overall performance will not increase too much unless to the point you will feel it.
Honestly, I would not recomend ssd for day to day usage. Professionals may consider it.

Why are these things suddenly getting SO cheap?

Is it suppliers just getting rid of old stuck or is it because newer, faster, better (and pricier) technology is imminent?

Why do people like you come here and post rubbish without any evidence? And if you are going to post something how about not using all caps and writing properly, or is that too much to ask?

Never had any major problems with Ebuyer and would use them again, just the same as I would use Scan, Aria, etc.

The company I work for does IT supply/support for small and medium businesses. We started offering SSD upgrades to our clients about 9 months ago and the response has been amazing. Even creaky old P4 machines with SATA-I ports are completely transformed by an SSD; I've yet to have one client not delighted by the result, and it's usually the ones who were initially suspicious that a single component could make such a huge difference who rave the most afterwards.
spoilt for choice which one is better

It's true that eBuyer won't deal with faulty items - here is an example from this week for a faulty Dell printer I bought from them less than six months ago:

Please be advised that warranty is covered by the manufacturer so please contact Dell and they will be able to help;

Please learn how to use your keyboard properly. Writing all in caps is rude, you also sound like a bit of a jobsworth, I have shopped at Ebuyer many times, never had any problems with returning items or anything. Meh.

Ok the first time i have seen a seller comment on a thread before !. Not disagreeing with the comments that Ebuyer have made but is it ok to do so as i thought no self promotion was allowed ?. (voting hot by the way)

PROOF:
I have purchased a Samsung HD from Ebuyer. Died after 14months. Only then did I find out that it was grey stock, so only covered by ebuyer's own 12month warranty, not the 36month samsung warranty.

in same boat... :-)
Better to have manufacturers warranty then no warranty at all.

SSD's produce no noise.
SSD's do not have moving parts so you can pick up and move your laptop about with out the risk of damaging the hard drive.
SSD's use less power.
Ebuyer always list the warranty period in the specification, I always get a screen shot/print out when buying as it's hard to find out how much warranty it came with 2 years down the line if the item fails.
I only got my ebuyer "flyer email" about 7 minutes ago... looks like you got yours over 8 hours ago... they really need to sort out their mailing processes!

You do not actually need to tell me because my business with you is ended … You do not actually need to tell me because my business with you is ended already sometime ago because of the poor way you sometime conduct it. Saying so, others are not any better than you.Make sure you clearly explain on whatever you sell and in big letters because when it comes to get some service you act like the man seen at market and when you meet him again he pretends he is never seen you before, lol.People in UK would automatically expect that warranty manufacturer, as you are an UK seller, comes with anything you sell. If it does not and you maybe offer a 1 year warranty in total, it does not mean that we have understood what you exactly mean; make it more clear. Notoriously we know more or less that the first year is always with the seller, usually. I had to trow away a drive as it was just over the one year warranty that you offered. It is notorious that samsung would offer 3 year but you sold me one coming from the third world countries and therefore it was beyond any reasonable expence to send to them and get it back as they would also charge us because they would consider it an abroad purchase.You gave me that and you get back the results of it, lol. You do that in whitin the legal limit and in my legal limits I want to make people aware AND IN CAPITAL LETTERS of your poor mutually hidden unconventional terms and conditions hoping that you understand what I went through in this very negative and true experience. Be ashamed of yourself as you where unable to help at all. It is you after all that told me that I should read the small prints. Same of what usually the man at the market, never seen before, would tell me after he is conned me, lol. Hope my english is not that too bad but looks like that it should be understandable to you (you know what I am talking about after all), I hope, once and forever.Good LuckPS: for these people that thinks it is rude to write in capital letters ect...:It needed to be highlighted and It was enough evidence for me what they did and what I believe they still do. I also had nice experience with them but obviously if nothing goes faulty, who do I blame??!! If an item does not go faulty it is after all what we should expect to get from anyone. We pay money and the item should work well at all times and well beyond of any reasonable manufacturer warranty and work flawlessly without any problems at all. When something goes faulty they usually blame us for misusing ,viruses, etc...etc...etc...,lol



I just couldn't read any of that. If there's a point in there you're trying to put across then it's buried under poor grammar and disjointed sentences.

So report them to trading standards what they're doing is illegal if that is the case. More often what they say is that you will get a faster replacement dealing with the manufacturer under warranty. What ebuyer may or may not want is irrelevant they are subject to SOGA the same as everyone else, your contract is with them not the manufacturer

Conversely I have never had a problem with ebuyer and returns both my personal account and business one

No. Since Ebuyer is a UK registered company, you're covered by the sale of goods act. They have to fit in line with every other retailer whether they like it or not. Stop scaremongering.
