Adding an SSD to a desktop already using a standard hard disk drive is a smart and efficient way to upgrade. Transferring the operating system and applications from the HDD to the SSD allows the SSD to be used as a bootable drive that takes full advantage of the flash-based technology.

For notebooks, SSDNow drives are a perfect replacement for hard drives resulting in faster, more reliable performance. Making this change will improve a notebook's efficiency in a wide range of tasks, from booting up to running the most robust operating system and demanding applications.

£1.22 per gb best ive seen so far

hmmm tempting for my macbook as I do a lot of photo editing on it.... would half my available hd space though....

Please stop this, its ruining my credit rating....just gonna have to dig deep and buy before VAT goes up!

The second review on ebuyer is a bit worrying...

GOD IM TEMPTED!!!

Anyone have this drive for benchmarks?

I've got the 64GB version and it is pretty good. Not as good as the C300 or Intel I have in other machines, but definitely does a decent job compared to mechanical drives.

Available a little cheaper at Aria if you qualify for their free postage or can collect in Manchester:

This made a huge difference to my laptop.

This has slow read/write compared to others I see (usually 280mb+ read/write).

I FEEL THE NEED

Used 3 brands so far, Crucial (C300), Integral (P Series) and Kingston (SSD Now V Series). This one in comparison to the others was much cheaper but sadly NOTICEABLY slower (i.e. not just a micro-measure which in real performance terms means nothing!) almost to the point where I would say its not worth the upgrade

I use an SSD as the Photoshop scratch disk. Photoshop flies

Dont need one right this second so gonna wait for the next gen intels apparently available in Q4 or early Q1. Rumors are double capacities for roughly what prices are now ...

news.softpedia.com/new…tml

yes but...they've been saying that for years. g25 held its price FOREVER and even went up, it's a damn disgrace

The V series is not very good, better with the V+

You could always buy two of their 64GB drives for roughly the same price and stripe them in a raid array (raid 0) for a speed increase.

TRIM wont work in raid array, at least to my knowledge

I still happy with my WD Volicy Raptor 300GB, these are too expensive for what they are

nice deal! im still holding out for a sub £60 vertex 2 or corsair force 60gb version. il probably have to wait for a complete new generation for them to hit that price tho (_;)

Don't think you'll have to wait very long. The next gen drives will start to appear over the next 4 months which should drive significant price decreases on the current models. I would be surprised if the Crucial C300 and Vertex 64GB models were not under £70 in 6 months time.

£149.99 now with free delivery. Snap em up people.
