i think most people vaule the time it would take to format it, reclone back to the old drive (maybe not it that order, as recloning it might work better before formating it), and back to the new drive to much for that, and ofc the going to the post office and the packing

Agreed haha.

I chanced it with amazon customer support chat asking for a refund of the difference but they wouldn't do it! Nevermind.

yep ssd prices sure have been coming back down recently, still waiting for anything to beat the 256gb i got 3/4 years ago via bespoke offers combi with 20% quidco cashback tho, for all of £35
Ahh, bespoke offers! Got some dirt cheap DDR3 thanks to them back in the day.
Might finally take the plunge on an SSD and get this one. Been meaning to invest in one for a while. How easy is getting it all set up? (Desktop PC, want to move Windows 10 over to SSD and keep the 1TB drive in there currently for documents/pics/etc)

easy enough

turn pc off (important, also unplug the main power cable)

unplug the current sata leads from the 1tb (plug in a second sata data cable, get one if needed, you will have a second sata power cable more than likely on the psu already) plug in the ssd and the 1tb, shelf them in bays, velco strip the ssd if needed, tho they sit still and run just find

turn pc back on (plug back in the main plug cable also important)

find software on the internet to clone drives, macrium reflect is good if nothing else, click clone drive, wait for a few hours, depending on the speed of the hdd and what you have on it, currently,

when cloned you can fast format the hdd how ever you like via windows command or disk manager or even macrium reflect, (as pcs dont do well with 2 os drives)

Does doing a clone actually work properly in this respect? Most OS-es will tune themselves (by applying different setups) depending on whether they are being installed onto an SSD or a conventional drive. I thought that this was only done at install time, in which case I have no doubt that it will work, just that it might be sub-par if you don't do a clean install to the SSD.

worked every time i've cloned one

tho ya a fresh install would always be better going from hdd to sdd, tho i rarely bother with that, to much hassle, (well really not and probly faster to fresh install if you have all the iso or dvds / codes to hand, but lol)

You could use the "Windows 7 Backup" feature (ignore the name) in Windows 10 to make a system backup to an external drive, then when installing Windows 10 on the SSD, tell it to do a recovery from the external drive and it'll find the pre existing setup.
Code doesn`t work anymore I am afraid
Which is better, this one or the Integral P Series 5 (basically same price on eBay with 10% discount code) ??

speeds are about the same, so whatever one you want

kingston is a better more of a well known brand, tho they also like to bait and switch memory chips, so ya really doesnt matter
Code still working.
Just ordered! FYI the text box to enter the code doesn’t work on Safari on either mobile or Mac. Have to switch to Chrome

well ya ofc most of this site is (maybe even this and the other post too)
Friend of mine has his hard drive completely knackered and looking for a cheap SSD. How do I know this ssd fits his laptop? It's a 2012 Samsung laptop (which model I don't remember). I've been told newer ssd's don't work well on old hardware. Thanks.

its 2012 so it would be sata for sure, (maybe 2 tho and not 3) *no one will know without the model number*

and old hardware is fine with sdd, they just run a bit slower for it, if its only sata 1 150mbps cap (it wont be sata 1 from 2012 just listing to list) 2 300 mbps cap and not 3 600 mbps cap

not in this case
all phison devices are a turnkey solution made directly by phison
e.g. the whole package pcb nand chipset is all built by phison
so any phison device is made in the same factory with branded nand

kingston have a special deal with phison
with kingston supplying factory second nand (hence the kingston branding on the nand)
hence phison branding the phison s11 as kingston also

dont get me wrong this is a good buy and i would get one
but i would take the integral all day long before this
they have the exact same chipset but with branded nand
e.g. less bad blocks from the factory

consider this a tesco value phison turnkey drive

Never unplug the power cord. Keep the power cord plugged in and just turn off at the wall switch. This way your pc case is always earthed and will dissipate the static. You can eccumulate thousands of volts of static just walking on your carpet with socks on. Static won't always spaz your chips straight awsy but it can dramaticly weaken them so they will fail early.
