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.

SSDNow uses a standard SATA interface but, unlike a regular HDD, SSD is very rugged and built with no moving parts, making it ideal for power users and road warriors who push the limits of their notebooks. Other benefits include reduced power usage, less noise and less heat generation.

SSDNow V Series drive helps organizations of all sizes and consumers enhance the performance of computers with a Serial ATA (SATA) interface. By improving a computer's performance and durability, SSDNow V Series drives help increase productivity, and extend the life of existing computers.

Noticed some cold votes, would love to know where you can find this cheaper as I am looking for one and I was holding off buying this one in case someone kindly supplied a link to a cheaper find?

I think the reason they voted cold is because of the slow write speed.

possibly but this is the cheapest I have ever seen it. Do I get it now or wait and see if it drops any lower... Mmmm decisions decisions...

If I were you I would have already bought it, there will always be cheaper deals. Use it up and sell it off fleabay.

i'm going for it. i hope to run win7 and osx dual boot.... not much else but i hope the read speeds are good enough. will the write speeds for this drive be sufficient for just OSx and minimal apps?

also, can someone tell me how i can transfer current OS ... can i make my own transfer kit?

I've recently used Acronis True Image to migrate my windows xp and ubuntu from a 120GB HD to a 640GB HD, and it worked like a charm.

Exactly the same as I am looking to do, just use it to hold Win7

Hope a few got in on this one, back to £100 now so expiring

now £74.99 & in stock

Wow imagine anyone buying this at the £100 price!! Good to see it is back down in price.

Original Poster

Maybe I should ask a mod to un-expire this for me while the price has dropped.

hmm tempted by this, for my lappy. nice1

Original Poster

Well I have just ordered mine, sat around for too long and missed it thought I had blown my chance when it went back to £100 but now it has dropped a further £2.00 I am not complaining

Seriously tempted but worried about the low write speed. From the specs of other drives it should be double. Would I run into any problems with the page file etc?

is it worth running XP on a SSD?

Not really. No TRIM support means after a few months performance is going to really suffer.

i have a crucial c300 ssd with 75mb write speed and never had any problems it's very quick so this one should be better

if you're upgrading from a standard mechanical drive this will be noticeably quicker, less power consumption too...

[quote=montblanc]less power consumption too...

talking of which... did anyone see the Gadget show the other day, some serious energy and money saving gadgets. Not sure if it was a slightly older episode as may have been watching on one of Sky gazillion other channels

i bought this a few weeks ago when it was posted on here, put it in a dell mini 10v and tried win7 and osx, both ran slower than on the standard seagate mechanical drive

i have never had one of these ssd's to play with yet,so can't really help i would start a new thread asking the real tech heads on here, they will give you a clue i'm sure
good luck

Use the 128 version of this in my desktop and it's soooooo much snappier than my old Raptor 10k. Great value, as SSD drives go.

Watch for 31K offset, create the partition with diskpart (64kb alignment for XP). Then you're good to go with Clonezilla. You can download a free Vista/7 recovery disk and use that to start command prompt and run diskpart.

Ah, I've hit a snag. Hard drives slide into my case on trays that you screw the hard drive to from underneath (innuendo city). I can't find any sort of adapter or tray replacement... Kingston do one but it fits to the sides and there's another one that fits on the bottom of the drive but I'm not sure what its actual purpose is.

I'v wanted t buy this for weeks. Now this price has talked me into it.

This is going in my Game PC but this is perfect for laptop users due to low power consumption and fast booting.

Montblanc, the weight of this thing is less than that of the average mobile phone. So all you need is a double sided sticky pad and stick it on top of you disc spinner.

My power supply cables are heavy and awkward, I don't think that a sticky pad would cut it I'm afraid.

Low write speeds are generally associated with lower capacity SSD's. I'd assume thats down to them being boot drives? I.e. only needing sufficient read speeds for quick boots.

I'd rather not test that theory for the sake of a few quid.

It's the read speed that is important to load the OS and the applications. I'd be worried if the it was the other way around, but the speed of this drive is just fine!

You won't break the drive by moving it around, you can shake it about whilst it's running and it will be fine, the only real concern by it being loose or not secured is disconnection of the sata and/or power cables or damage to the connectors.

The write speed is low in comparison to some other SSDs, however plenty of conventional drives have write speeds lower than this. I don't see any problem with the write speed. A SSD has extremely low latency in terms of seek time, much much faster than a conventional hard drive. You will notice a significant improvement over conventional hard drives with this unit.
