I imagine that there will be a load of these next week on Amazon Warehouse because some thicko at Amazon has categorised it as an external drive and it's currently the no.2 best-selling external drive.
They'll have a few scratches on them where people have stabbed them a few dozen times with a USB plug, but still ought to be functional

Heated great price for these. Almost approaching the price these used to be last year before they shot back up.

No idea what these are like for performance? Don't think they are really one of the big brands in the SSD sector and typically with lesser known parts there is virtually no reviews but worth a punt at this price...
Thanks for posting.:)
Tempted but I really do not need another SSD atm

One of the world's biggest retaillers... But totally incapable of listing things correctly. Or even having proper filters on their searches, nor supporting Boolean operators.

But we know what they rely on: some other retailer somewhere to have a proper listing which you can use as longs as Amazon got the part number right. So other retailers put in more effort, Amazon can't be bothered, but we the punters end buying from Amazon because of their 'great customer service'. Which isn't as great as it was, plus being so big means they often pass the cost of 'spurious' returns on to the distributor or manufacturer which smaller retailers cannot.

Can't help but think that Amazon are taking a Walmart approach (Walmart were meant to have approached US cities something along this line: if a city could support say 5 Walmarts they would open 8 to saturate the city, then once all the small retailers went bankrupt they'd close down the extra 3 making (this sort of hinted in this en.wikipedia.org/wik…art, but I think there was an actual study)).
Not working when you add to basket im afraid.
And prime indicated £68
I'm pretty new to PC to builds, is this that new fast 6GB/s connection?
Looks as if it's gone, only showing third party sellers now. Now the wait to see if they honour them. Don't think it's a massive enough price drop to be an obvious misprice but Amazon are very stingy with PC part offers/misprices, had a lot cancelled on me in the past but to be fair had a fair few honoured in other departments.

Prefer seeing PC parts on Amazon warehouse as those always seem to get honoured regardless of the price....

Listed since last September, but still couldn't find any reviews except for one Italian youtube video of the 120GB showing the boot time versus a HDD: youtube.com/wat…muM
Looks like Amazon sold out or took down the listing. Hopefully they will honour the sale, I order one got the confirmation email will have to wait and see.

Thanks, some interesting info there . I'd tried all sorts of things to get a better search on Amazon. you're right, there's no way to to perform logical searches.
When you see things like their newly-granted patent for a method to block price-comparison searches for shoppers in their new bricks and mortar store then you have to wonder about how much effort they put into obscuring shopper's search ability on their websites too.
I bought one of these several months ago, from Currys for about £56, so not a huge saving.

It's in an old SATA-2 based motherboard, but has been absolutely fine under Linux. Using it for boot disk, and gaming. Home directories, etc are on an older spinny disk.

Prices have gone up lately though, it's unusual to find a 240GB SSD for under £71-72 right now so £51 is a huge saving.
Gone
available @ £73 .. ouch!

Yep, I got it, will be complaining as I am sure they could have honoured it at that price, big branded SSDs have gone for less. they won't honour change their mind of course, but I might get a fiver off my next order or another month prime if I kick up a fuss. Ultimately not that surprised though as IME Amazon never seem to honour computing misprices, aside from warehouse deals, which this wasn't. They must have very low margins or else very strict policy with PC hardware.....
