no need to describe what this is about.

cheaper than ever before. last time seen on HUKD for £148/£155

might get OOS quickly, but you can order now, and amazon will dispatch when available (should be soon) and honor the price.


UPDATE:

amazon refunds the difference for drives bought earlier - at least the ones bought for £155 (credit: marshalex)

the dispatch time for the ones ordered for 139.99 is still unknown, but my guess is it would be several days, maybe a week.

when you order, your card is not charged until SSD is dispatched, so if the price drops you can get them to price-match, if it increases (unlikely), just cancel the order. But from my personal experience amazon always honored the order price.



technical stuff: this will suit both laptops with 7mm and 9mm drives, as it's 7mm thin, but has got spacer in box. for desktops, all you need is this or similar:

amazon.co.uk/Ocz…68W

ebuyer.com/219…kt2

or some cheapo from ebay.

Oos! Nice freaking find though op, heat added!
No info on delivery times either, but great price!
If and when these drives drop below £100 I'd be seriously tempted... still good find OP, nice to see them going down!
Thought the prices had dropped to a point where they would level off a bit, clearly not
That's obscenely cheap, and to think I nearly bought it for £200...
Amazing price

I think it's going to be a bit like RAM...I have a suspicion it's just going to drop and drop and drop.
A great buy.
Don't care how long the wait is, I've ordered.

Ta Ta, Ta Ta Ta, Ta Ta Ta Ta, Ta Ta.
Right, I have a 2.5" to 3.5" mounting bracket. Is there anything else I need to fit this into my desktop?
This is why I waited for amazon to pricematch novatech at £154.98. One quick call to amazon and they refunded the £14.99 difference. Great service.

The good thing is, if a better deal comes up you can ask Amazon to match it or cancel the order in that time
Don't forget Nectar eShops points for a possible bit of £back. Triple points at moment so 1.5%

Depends when they get stock in, really. Could be this week, could be 3-4 weeks.
yeah if its 3-4 weeks forget it
Also IIRC you are not guaranteed this this price, you could get an email telling you its more expensive and asking if you still want to buy.
Now that is cheap. The question is do I get this for my HP Pavillion and move the 128gb Samsung into my Samsung NC10 Netbook?

Decisions, decisions...
this is very good price and a great find! I think it is the cheapest we have seen a 256gb SSD is it not? Deffos of this high quality anyway.
wow never though this will drop again so soon.
wait until the crucial V4 is out in few days. Prices will crash,lol

Nope. Though I didn't even bother with that. My Intel X25-M G2 has been held in place by sticky back velcro for over two years now
I'm going to raid a couple if these! Brilliant
Amazon.co.uk Great respect! This refunded the difference.

Thanks a lot.

And it came with my case I think so no harm in using it
With pricing like this Samsung must be looking to do the same to the SSD market as it has done to the other Android phone manufacturers. This is a brilliant drive which I thought was amazing at £155 from Novatech, but at less than 55p per GB from Amazon it is ridiculous, especially with the full copy of Ghost and the USB/Sata cable.

Highly recommended and great post.
I feel sorry for all them overclockers.co.uk customers who paid more and ordered this drive for delivery before jubilee and was let down as overclockers didnt get there stock like they promised people poor show overclockers.
Very nice, hot for me.
This is why people should use amazon, 2 minute conversation on the web chat and £15 refunded. Impeccable customer service. If all other retailers followed suite then no one would complain. Top stuff. (and mine has been dispatched!)

You should never buy anything from overclockers. Absolutely dire customer service in my experience. At least you'll get a prompt refund from Amazon. When I had an expensive graphic card fail within the first six months, it took me another three months for Overclockers to discover that the manufacturer couldn't repair or replace it and another three months to get my money back, which Overclockers then reduced by 50% given the 'enjoyment' I had already received from the card. Similar treatment is documented all over the web (but promptly deleted from their fora) if you do a search. Really, really, do buy elsewhere.

Will there be any problems fitting this into a PC?

Couldn't agree more. amazon has absolutely world class customer service. Ordered a lot of things over the years from them, and many times changed my mind or had price matches or something isn;t right and they fixed it all- immediately. Top notch
Hot if needed, but I found one in my bowl of cereal earlier this morning :P
Great price.
Just spoken to Amazon, £15 refunded against my order last Friday. Great customer service.
im so tempted by this but i know in a couple of weeks there will be one for less ahhhh
