A cheap upgrade to any computer with a 2.5" HDD.

I posted the same SSD available at PC world a few weeks ago but due to limited stock I know a lot of people were unable to locate one.

I was looking at purchasing another to run in raid 0 when I found it available at Amazon for an extra £5 delivered. It is listed as out of stock but I usually find Amazon are quick to get new stock and don't take payment until just before dispatch.

I was sceptical about PNY SSD's but the one I purchased over a month ago has given me absolutely no issues so I haven't hesitated purchasing another.

Isn't this just the "normal" price for it? I mean assuming that you're not fooled by Amazon's periodic price-spikes that they use to pretend the price has gone down (again)

do the same considerations about buying disks for RAID setups in "matched" pairs apply for ssds as they did/do for HDDs? I set up a pair of OCZ SSDs in RAID0 and am not that impressed with the performance. in my experience a single SSD (better brand e.g. crucial/Samsung) can feel faster than RAID0 with 2 cheapo SSDs. it's not clear cut that raid0 will always be faster.

I was just going to say this isn't really a deal for a 128gb.

I paid that much for a 240gb Crucial SSD from Amazon last year

There's not really any noticeable difference, but run a benchmark using something like Crystal Disk Mark and you will see a difference in the results.
