Hey, they don't pay me enough to buy PS
Does anyone know if DABS will accept a return if the seal has been broken on the box? I tried a Crucial SSD on my Asus UL30 and I was getting BSODs. Crucial refunded me the money even though the box had been opened. I would like to try the Samsung to see if it's any different.
Bought one of these over the weekend from Amazon with the desktop kit (not needed though) for my Macmini 2006, just fitted it and about to power it up.

Product packaging and overall contents look good.
Heat. Added.
I just can't bring myself to buy one because they just keep going down! Will bide my time and see how low they can go ;-)
At this stage, I think they must pay me to take 1,lol
Many thanks, ordered two for RAID 0.
This is such a good deal voted hot
What is raid 0?

Here you go mate...



Thanks but seems very complicated is it very hard to setup?
Bargain, just waiting for the 128GB to come down a little more as this will only just about hold the data on my main boot drive.
Reckon the 128gb will drop quickly??

Rather have a bigger drive but a bit impatent!
Is this roughtly as fast as they come? What difference does it make if my laptop can do SATA 3?

Well it's already down to £79.99 but am holding out a little longer as would be happy to pay that price but idealy from Novatech or Amazon as not too many people rate Dabs.
Don't you mean £89.98?
can you raid 0 these, and keep windows 7 trim functions

They've put it up by a tenner, it was £79.99 earlier
Awesam

It's still £79.99, just search for 819NI800, you can't link directly to it at that price for some reason.

That is true - nice one!
I think TRIM is lost under RAID 0 (will have to check the RST software tonight), but the drives have garbage handling functions built in natively, so shouldn't be a biggie.
"107 in stock, so hurry.."..............81 now, mmmmm shall i buy it or wait a few weeks..........(_;)

Surely you'll require more space for your netbook when you consider that you can't convert an optical drive in to a drive for an SSD?

PLEASE HELP:

i received yesterday and today i'm trying to put in my netbook. it fits. good!
i decide to reinstall Win7 (starter editino from usb) just to make everything nice and clean.
I start the installation, accepted the terms and condition. next screen is to select the drive on which to install the OS. I select the new one (of course the only one in the netbook {11.6 inch PB dot.m series}). So the enxt screen is the one with "copying windoes file & etc".

It starts (i can see the three "..." moving), then after a few second it stops. mouse doesn't move.impossible to do anything except take out the electricity plug.
i tried few time and the result i always the same.

I m not a computer beginner, but i am on SSD. but i guess it should work as a normal hdd in term of installation and similar.

So...any advides? maybe it's faulty??? it's a good start stepping like this in the Ssd world.


THANKSSS
have you got a dvd based w7 install disc and an external dvd-rom to try with
Edited by: "dontasciime" 16th Jun 2012
i don t have the external dvd rom, but i have got another laptop with dvd rom. should i try to install Win7 on the SSD pluggin it into the laptop, and than try to switch it and put the ssd on the netbook?
^ you can try that but just to test drive is actually working. As when w7 installs on your other laptop the HAL, drivers / hardware install will be different to that of your netbook and is not the way to be going about this (as in installing in laptop then reinserting into netbook) but do test it in the laptop to see if you can install window via your usb flash pen first if a no go then try a DVD-ROM install of windows 7

Edited by: "dontasciime" 17th Jun 2012
i m sure the win 7 on usb works. cause i used already few months ago one the netbook indeed. i know the driver are different...if it will work...

- than unplugging the SSD from the laptop will make the laptop normally working loading Win from it's own hardrive?
- if plug the ssd onthe netbook. the drivers are differnt of couse. but will win7 load? and than could i re/install win7?
-otherwise what to do? call DABS. (i only have 5 days cause unfortunately friday i gotta live uk )

thanks very much!!!!!!! really.
