Kingston UV400 SATA3 480GB Solid State Drive £92.34@ MIsco + P&P

33
Found 23rd May 2017
Absolutely excellent price for a 480GB SSD, fill your boots before they sell out.

Review of drive can be found - HERE!

It may be cheaper HERE! at ILGS but I'm checking reviews of the retailer first - £87.79

ILGS seem to be fine, they offer free shipping but advise it can take up to 7 days.

EDIT: ILGS price has now gone back up, but if you look at post number two, it was that price, even if it was a short time and Sorry

EDIT: Also now £88.56 at BT Business Direct+ P&P the link is - HERE!

Now gone from BT also.

Misco is still showing £92.34, ILGS obviously corrected theirs.

Yeah, seems that they corrected it, but I bought one as you can see from above, but I've updated the OP and title to reflect, the not so good, but still cheap price for 480GB presently.

It's a TLC drive, it's fast 550r/500w and 90k/50k IOPS and it comes in a cracking retail kit with USB enclosure, and software etc.

Basically, unless you were comparing an older SATA II drive to an 850 EVO etc. then they are all becoming very similar, pretty much how spinning disk hard drives have.
Yes but what is the endurance rating?

Its one of the slowest drives out there tomshardware.co.uk/kin…tml
It seems Kingston had a price error thought one of there distributors which has caused the prices to go wrong everywhere in the market.

In most of the benchmarks listed in that article it is similar to a number of other more expensive drives. Overall I think at this price it's excellent value for money, especially for someone looking for a cheap upgrade from an HDD.

Just added BT Business Direct at £88.68, see link in the OP.
Decent price at ~£90, but in the £100-120 range you can get a significantly better performing drive. These don't benchmark particularly well against the competition. Still a huge improvement over a mechanical drive of course though.

Yes, all the fun an games - it has gone now... BT obviously realised the mistake.
So this went hot based on previous lower price from different retailer then you edited it twice to higher prices from different retailers?
Surely this should have been expired so themes price can be judged on its own merit
this or the HyperX Savage for £12 more - amazon.co.uk/gp/…OLE

Yes this was 87£ which was brilliant price now at 98 not so much
If you need it buy it but I'm not sure that now is a good time to buy SSD prices have been static/increasing for some time. I bought my 500GB evo 850 in 2015 for £117.

If you need an SSD now, then you have little choice as the prices will not start coming down at the very earliest until the end of 2017, but it is now looking likely that it will be Q1 2018.

Is £98 a good deal for a 480G SSD?

Yes, it's about as cheap as you can get them right now.

The HyperX Savage is the better drive and beats the UV400 in every way possible in benchmarks.

It's currently out of stock at Amazon, but can still be ordered for dispatch it '1 to 4 weeks.'
Expire posts when they finish, please people.

What's the performance of this compared to the Samsung Evo 960?


Not sure if you're being serious with that question but an EVO 960 would absolutely annihilate a UV400 in every single way imaginable.
Its has a 200TB stated endurance... that is OK, the same as other reputable SSDs.

Except it wouldn't. In benchmarks you'd get some bigger numbers, but they don't translate into real-world gains that you would notice day to day.

SSDs of any kind are insanely fast.

In most cases you'd be right, the majority of SSDs are effectively indistinguishable under real world use conditions. But the difference in speed here is so vast that you likely would notice the difference in many circumstances. The EVO 960 is an M.2 and the UV400 a lower end SATA SSD. We're talking about one being multiple times faster at everything - literally 4 times faster at normal read and write operations on average, for example.
