Kingston A400 120GB SSD Delivered @ Base.com - £21.99

21
Found 10th Aug 2018
SSD's seem to be getting stupidly cheap recently, and £22 for a branded drive has to be a great deal for use as an OS drive!

Granted its a basic drive but for an older computer, I don't think you can get a beter bang for your buck performance upgrade then putting in an SSD:

Spec from Kingston site:
kingston.com/en/ssd/consumer/sa400s37

Read up to 500MB/s
Write up to 450MB/s

Edit: thanks to brainsys for pointing out the write speed on the 120GB is only up 320MB/s!

Ordered, thank you for sharing..
Good price, I ordered this one on the mymemory.co.uk deal at £22.31 the other day. Arrived today so looking forward to getting it set up this weekend and seeing what difference it makes to my PC.
Give it a year or so and the 240gb ones will be approaching this price

Hopefully although we thought that back in mid 2016 and yet here we are

Whilst I agree, I think it will be because demand for SSDs drops. I thought your comment would be the case in 2016 too and then saw prices go back up again to 2014 levels (which is when I bought my first).

In terms of demand for SSDs I think its principally upgrading old PCs and as an OS drive for new ones and laptops. I'm just not sure what demand there is for SSDs much larger than 120GB. I store games on a 480GB SSD, and its handy and full, but I'm really not interested in replacing or adding to it, because most of the time there are only a few games I actually play (judging my steam promo talk here that's most other people too) and those few games fit comfortably on a 480GB SSD, with the rest (mostly older games which wont benefit from being on an SSD) residing on a HDD. Given the cost of 1TB of SSD vs HDD, I can see the price falling simply to try to entice people into buying things they REALLY do not need. 1TB of games is for most people "storage".

Your spec of 450MB/s write doesn't agree with the Kingston datasheet:
kingston.com/dat…pdf

120GB — up to 500MB/s read and 320MB/s write
240GB — up to 500MB/s read and 350MB/s write
480GB — up to 500MB/s read and 450MB/s write
960GB — up to 500MB/s read and 450MB/s write

'Up to' means when all the electrons have been lined up singing the same song and there is no 'R' in the year. YMMV

Your right, thanks for the head's up
I had just read the speed range across the whole A400 range not just the 120GB!
Very good price. Reliable brand. Heat added.

You too?
Cheap enough to transform any old laptop.

This plus a £10 usb3-sata cable would make some v. cheap fast external storage too.

Decent for a boot drive

I agree for things I use on a daily basis 240gb is good for me, never been much of a game horder never really play old games
Buy multiple and run them in RAID.
Given the low price anyone think this is worth using to revive a Acer 1810TZ with SU4100 (CPU Bench ~ 900) for light web browsing?
Price now gone up to 26.99 and showing out of stock. So expired?
