£14 is not bad to store your internets on.
240GB looks good too price wise, speed and 3 year warranty: mymemory.co.uk/mym…tml
I'm assuming this is rebranded Integral stuff too.

Not that that's a bad thing. My 256GB SD card is still only about a month old and I've not used the device it's in much in terms of tech you generally get what you pay for so keep that in mind if you want something to store important stuff on.

I've always recommended Samsung's EVO SSDs as they're probably the best for the price when on sale.

I'd probably pick up one of these for moving data from one device to another quickly or for putting movies on to play on a TV. Nothing more.

lol @ cheap as nand chips

Can you get away with 120GB or would you really need 240GB?

Depends what you will be using it for.
I bought one for my old dear, it will be plenty for her as she only browses net and uses Microsoft word, and uploads pics to the laptop. 120gb is ample for that.

Yes, for Windows & office installs you'll be fine. For this price it's an ideal upgrade for an ageing laptop!
Heat added - never thought these would come done much further than £15!

It's worth pointing out that cost does not equal quality when it comes to data storage. No manufacturer guarantees data, always, always have a backup of critical data no matter how much you pay for a drive or from what manufacturer...
I bought both the 240GB & 120GB earlier this week, when they were runnning a '10% if you buy two selected products' deal and have installed them into two builds. They're both running well with 550MB/s read speed & slightly slower write speed. Good post, OP.

Oh, almost forgot, don't forget quidco, 'cos you also get 8% cashback on mymemory products!

You thought right. They haven't.
So far everything I've bought from My Memory hasn't been the speed advertised, and has failed :/ 128GB SD Card for cheap... sounds great! Oh wait, it's so slow, never mind it's dead.
SSD Drive = Solid State Drive Drive. Makes no sense. Voted hot, despite the description
Ok never done it before this will work on desktop pc right ? My 1tb harddrive on PC's nackered so bought the 240 GB one and just read some are 3.5 and this 2.5? Thanks
Thanks OP, needed one for backups. Got too many Hard Drives - Time for an upgrade.

You do? And what makes your recommendation any good? You can't even form a coherent sentence (see your own 2nd paragraph). It's babbling nonsense that explains not much really. Only that you own an Integral SD card but haven't used it so can't comment about it. So why tell us?

At this price and size, this MyMemory SSD is absolutely fine. You don't need the most expensive SSD. If this size meets your needs and you don't need eg; super mega fast ultra lightening 1 sec quicker transfer speeds for instance. This will do. As others have said, this is a quick and inexpensive upgrade for say, your nans laptop. Or a spare computer that just gets used for internet and word docs.

All SSD's you see like this are 2.5". No 3.5" ones exist. They are the same size as a laptop HDD (as in traditional mechanical one, like your 1TB 3.5"). Most computers have fittings (holes) to take a 2.5" in a 3.5" HDD slot. If not, an inexpensive adapter can be bought from eBay or Amazon etc. At worst, the 2.5" SSD can simply sit in the 3.5" hole, as long your not gonna be moving the PC, the SSD will stay put. Very lightweight and no moving parts. Could affix with blue tack and not cause any harm!

Cheers pal
Code not working for me? 😞
nor me
Finally received my SSD. Got to say - not impressed at all with how it was sent. Airmail from Switzerland in a small jiffy bag. Ok, I realise it's not a HDD prone to impact damage but still, a tiny jiffy bag? I'd expect it from a private eBay seller but not a mainstream company.

Can't complain too loudly for 14 odd quid though, eh?

Format the disk.
What I did was downloaded win 10 from Microsoft onto a USB drive, put the ssd into laptop, went into bios and changed boot sequence to have USB as first boot device.

Followed on screen instructions, near the beginning you get the option to format the drive, DO THIS, and away you go.
Good luck with install.

Glad you're well rested! Hehe.

I thought about going the "Windows" route but I don't really get how installing it works anymore. Years ago, you used to be able to go on eBay and buy a random piece of hardware and it would come with the Windows COA to make a legit Windows OS. It's all changed now with Windows 10. How do you know if your code is legit? I can see tonnes of codes but how can people sell a legit OS so cheap? Then you get those selling the "real" disc/software and it's much, much more money. No doubt legit but then that's what worries me about just the codes...

I'm experimenting with Linux "Mint" at the moment. I do like to have a Windows machine handy for testing purposes though.

Ahh yep I shared the same concerns, but looking into it a bit they are often bought in china or india etc where the keys are sold very cheap due to their currency value and then resold in Europe / USA etc

Some are mass use keys, enough for several machines from hardware vendors selling complete systems.
Even if the key got suspended a few months down the road can just buy another one.

I was more worried that they are peeps using "key generators" to mass-produce keys which will get stomped on as soon as the Microsoft "Spynet" picks it up! Hehe. IIRC in the early days of W10 adoption, MS didn't even mind if you had a 'pirate' version of Windows - it allowed you to upgrade. How weird was that?

I have read about these Mass-use reseller keys so that makes sense. I looked at some more eBay listings as we are discussing them and there are some for little more than a quid. Many of them (as per usual) seem duplicates of each other but with a few pennies added on. I don't like the fact that they mention making sure you "validate within 10-15 days of activation" as if they will get discovered and pounced on?

One thing is for sure, Microsoft want mass adoption of win10 ( telemetry to one side ) they make a lot of money with apps and marketing, let alone windows being the gaming platform of choice with dx12 and future api's.

I think these keys have a blind eye approach from MS to get as many people as possible to migrate over.
