Poor. Its 82.49 on amazon
Sorry cold. The price of the game is clearly built into the cost as £90 for a 250GB SSD really isn't that cheap. That said storage prices on SSDs are poor anyway but it should definitely be possible to get cheaper than this....

Poor? you get a £29.99 rrp (according to Currys Pc world) Rainbow six game with it for £7.50 might not be a great or good game and you could probably get that cheaper than £29.99 I checked Ebay the code is about £15.00 there and on steam £11.99 to £74.99 the one ive got is a 2 year pass but i dont know if it you need the origonal to play it or it can play right away but forgot to mention in my op the SSD drive comes with a 5 year warranty that might be standard for all these SSD's but again cant grumble at a 5 year warranty

Not cheapest price, but still looks like a Good deal to me

Is this a top-tier SSD?



close to it but not top tier as they are way more expensive. There are faster ssd on paper but you wont notice it in normal use
Good god prices for SSD's have shot up. I got my 850 evo for less than £60 last year

hi i think Evo is their mid range and Pro is their top tier Evo gets good reviews though mainly the 500GB or 512GB i think it is but very reliable drives.

Just looking to see how close the W is to the X. Heat added.
The Samsung Rainbow Six Siege offer expired yesterday, so hopefully OP will get his game. Otherwise he overpaid for no reason

Poor. Its just SATA II.

I think you'll find it's SATA3. How else would it get those performance stats?

Just buy used. SSD drives can be used for a very long time without any issues and you can get one for fraction of the price of a new one.

Going to buy a used 240gb Sandisk SSD Plus for £54 delivered. Will use CrystalDiskInfo to check it.

I think that's an okay deal?

iF SOMEONE IS TRULY upgrading from an ide hard drive to a sata SSD it is very likely they have no sata ports on their motherboard .. ide drives went away years ago.
54 for a used 240gb ssd sounds a bit pricey to me ..40-45 sounds better, .but YMMV . SHould certainly be ok as long as its stats are ok. You can buy a tcsunbow drive new for about a tenner more.

SSD prices are getting silly now.


I bought a 120GB Samsung 840 Pro for £23 a couple of years ago and an Integral 120GB for about the same price last year..

What the heck happened.
Sorry game deal has expired but the ssd is still available same price I tried game code to and got the rainbow six download even though the 1st September last call date had passed which was great

If you have an old sata hard-drive its worth upgrading to ssd or an old Ide you can get an adapter on ebay for as little as £2 to install a ssd on an older Ide machine these links below will give you an idea of what your looking for

ebay.co.uk/itm…256

ebay.co.uk/itm…221

ebay.co.uk/itm…j9F

I don't know how reliable these things are may be best buy a cheap one try it if it works invest in a more expensive but better quality one but research it well and check your Pc specs before you buy stuff just in case it don't work

I hope others managed to get the deal too and enjoy the game and better Pc performance
