price is 64.99, but if you add code PRICELES5 and pay with Mastercard the price is 59.99 which is not bad for 240GB quality SSD.

Code is 1 use per account, if you used it already, just create new account.

OOS atm, but you can place order and Amazon will deliver when available (by experience this won't take long)

Guess Toshiba's ownership might eventually change things, but generally OCZ + quality has been an oxymoron for a long time.

"I have to say that the MX100 is still my recommendation for most people because the feature set and value are just amazing, but the ARC 100 is a compelling alternative for desktop users. The better performance consistency makes the ARC 100 more suitable for heavier workloads, so for a user with a heavy-ish IO workload and a tight budget the ARC 100 is a great option."

voting here makes no sense.

but, I've bought my 2 cheap SSDs from arguable the best etailor, shared it so some more people can make use of this offer and well, can't be bothered too much about the clueless types who see OCZ brand and automatically vote cold or those who vote cold on not being in stock for immediate dispatch.


I bought one a few weeks ago and have had no issues , win 7 starts in about 7 seconds and everything is pretty much instant

dude chill, hot or not depends or direction of wind on here, really no point in getting worked up about it

Temping, I was waiting for the MX100 to get down to this price (missed the lightning deal last year). Speed seems compatible - the only thing putting me off is that it doesn't support eDrive (the hardware-based BitLocker encryption in Windows 8 ). Although as it's for a desktop, I probably won't bother with encryption anyway.

There's a slightly cheaper SSD, the Patriot Blaze (which is also out of stock) at £61.94 from Amazon, but I can't find many reviews for that one: amazon.co.uk/Pat…OLE.

He is talking about quality and you quote performance. Is that even relevant?
Regardless, if the currys deal not long ago got some heat this one shouldn't be cold. If you do not like it, simply do not vote

in case you still don't get it, the quality is being described here:

Lol it's took you over three years to post one deal, and you've gone crazy over not getting much heat. Maybe because it's always been this price and you can get it from currys right now? And the MasterCard code has been done to death on here now

Today Flubit offered mx100 256gb for £68.62

I used to steer clear from any OCZ product as they were a very dubious company in my eyes.
Wouldn't have a problem buying one of the Toshiba owned SSDs though based on the specs and not the brand name.
Surprised that Toshiba kept the OCZ brand name really as I can't think of a more tarnished one.

niceguyrichy

have a look at this heremuch changed days for OCZ drives


They've managed to keep 5 drives running for a month with 100TB writes which is nothing really if you look at this Techreport Test.
Some of these 256GB drives have written 2PB now which is 20x as much data.

Hm, feature set and value... No mention of that far harder to quantify thing called quality.
Anyway, the problem with OCZ was never about features but rather their inconsistency in terms of both hardware and software (firmware) quality and their poor quality wasn't just for their SSDs as I remember buying a pair of the PSUs and getting a 100% failure rate (luckily the retailer sorted me out) and buying some of their RAM and having to return one set three times (but OCZ did refund me this DDR2 just before they went bankrupt.

So, while I was wise enough to OCZ to never buy their SSDs, I do have personal experience of their 'quality'. As I said initially, Toshiba may have changed all this but I will avoid OCZ for a while longer.

What is your problem here I do not get it. The quote you put here has nothing to do with QUALITY. And "compelling alternative for desktop users" doesn't mean quality. As I said, this shouldn't be cold but your response to his comment is totally irrelevant.

I thought the code had expired! If not then have you used it before as it's once per account.

Or it could be once per card! I should have added my other M/C to my Amazon account to see if that worked.
