Just matching eBuyer. I expect the 240GB Amazon price to come down as well.
Amazon's service at eBuyer price. EXCELLENT, thanks for posting. HEAT

Who would use eBuyer instead of Amazon?

Wouldn’t of thought that would sway many people.

Amazon are just taking over. How can ebuyer compete?

Iv'e had plenty of bad customer service from Amazon last few years, even had one of their own drivers use the f word in front of my little nephew, when I told Amazon about the verbal abuse I was ignored. Plenty of companies I'd choose over Amazon, although maybe not one as bad as ebuyer.

I like that ebuyer categorises things properly. For instance let's say I'm looking for an 8GB DDR4 2400MHz DIMM. With amazon I can go down the categories as far as computer components, RAM, DIMM but then speed and capacity are 'keyword searches' and tbh the whole thing gets fuzzy. I've added the DDR4 and 8GB 'keywords' and now it's showing me results I didn't ask for like SODIMMs at position 2 in the results!

Of course ebuyer has other downsides like quality of service but it's a lot easier to find what you need on it.
Amazon has a far better returns policy!!! The drivers are subcontracted and more likely would not be employed for long. The question is why did he swear at you? That said your comment does not detract from this being a decent deal.
The price is good, however keep in mind this is a TLC nand, which means 2000 cycles at best

0.12TB * 2000 = 240TB write lifespan which'd be absolutely fine. I've clocked about 40TB in 5 years on my current SSDs. Now if the endurance per new cell was below about 200 cycles that'd be cause for concern

*edit* as Freddy12 pointed out, it's more like 333 and there's a drive out there for less money with much higher endurance. Buy it, not this.

well its rated at 40 TBW which isn't that good for being tlc kingston.com/dat…pdf
"The Kingston A400 SATA III 2.5-inch SSD is powered by the Phison S11 controller and is paired with Toshiba 2D Planar 15nm TLC NAND Flash. "
i would save the extra £5 and get hotukdeals.com/dea…107 which is also tlc and rated at 181TBW which can you check and confirm here integralmemory.com/sit…pdf

so to compare they are both dramlesss and uses the same phison s11 controller however the kingston a400 uses 2d tlc and the integral p series 5 uses 3d tlc which is alot better


3d nand is better than 2d nand




edit: edited this a few times to add better/more details

Neither would I...... They could always try offering their customers some after sales care..... That might help their failing business.

There’s a reason right there. They are taking over
