Far Cry 5 blatantly isn't free here as there are plenty of 500GB SSDs around the £100 mark so you are actually paying approx £100 SSD and £40 Far Cry 5. Ok if that is what you want but these SSD and 'free' game deals are annoying since the price has obviously been increased to pay for the game...

Okay it may not be free when looking at it like that but it is if you are after that particular SSD as it cannot be found cheaper without the game included. But maybe I should have said copy of far cry 5 “included” but either way it’s a good deal if you want this SSD. But yes if you want just any 500gb one then fair enough, shop around and get a better price.

find one that matches the 860 evo in performance, that is at the £100 mark (excluding the 850evo)?
Heated - nice find

If you reread my so called 'idiotic' comment you will see I said SSD, I didn't specify this particular one but I have seen other 500GB SSD deals right here on HUKD at the £100 mark. If you are obsessed about this particular one you might have to pay more, but for most normal tasks the brand doesn't make a huge amount of difference unless you are just buying it to measure load times...

Your conclusion simply doesn't hold water here I'm afraid. The only way to assess whether the game is free or not is to compare prices of the particular SSD with other retailers who are not offering the promo (and if you want to be diligent, compare over the weeks preceding this promotion).

£140.00 is the cheapest that this has ever been on Amazon (used here as it's usually pretty competitive and easy to obtain price histories).
Therefore, getting the SSD here for £140.97 would seem to suggest that, in the worst case scenario, the game is under £1, which I'm not going to split hairs over here...
The price is down to £139.99 now.

Fair enough, this deal is better than I first thought in fact and a bargain if you want this particular SSD. I reserved voting as I knew nothing about this particular model but I've voted hot now as you raise a good argument.

Personally I still couldn't put this kind of money into an SSD, and have little reason to as I have a smaller SSD and a big SSHD for larger files like games but this does seem good for those budgeting this amount...
Great deal for this sdd

Best I can find is £119.90 for the 500gb 860 Evo, which would still make this an ok deal if you wanted the game anyway.

Edit:. Plus delivery, which appears to be maybe £9 without actually going through checkout to find out.

Where?
Why is everyone getting so heated and angry over OP putting free copy of Far Cry 5??? If you want a Samsung SSD, and are willing to buy one due to performance, reputation etc - then getting a brand new game included is a pretty sweet deal.

If you weren't planning on getting one then don't get your knickers in a twist the deal clearly doesn't apply to you

All you warmongers who doesn't want that free copy, I will gladly have it.
I have just bought a 500gb SSD of Chinese origin for £90 with 3 yr warranty; only need it for occasional video recording so hopefully will suffice
people also forget you can sell the game... this is a really good price

Plus shipping close enough to adding a extra £10 to that price but i guess still cheaper.
Not heard of alternate before and their site looks a bit basic. I'd just pay the extra and go with BT. If you don't want the game you'll be able to flog it for around £30-35.

Yeah I added that to my previous comment. The Samsung Evo series is renowned for being reliable and long lasting anyway, so I think the 850 for £109 on Amazon is a better deal anyway
Is the Far Cry 5 on Steam or uplay?

All promotional copies of Ubisoft titles are Uplay codes.

£1,324.48 for 4TB model. Can just image how much the pro version would cost.
How do you receive the code for this? Is it sent on paper with the physical product or do you get by email after ordering?
Blackhorse16 h, 21 m ago

Instruction on the web stage states...


Thanks very much - I completely missed that! Email sent. Good deal IMO.
Why not just remove the game and reduce the price !
They will sell more if they did that
