Probably a known company but never come across them before.

Amazon sell this not Camelcamelcamel.

That's just a useful little website to check the past prices on stuff!

Please do not purchase three camels. Those will not fit in a standard laptop bay.

They track prices on Amazon. Very useful site.

5 years membership and you ask "who the hell are Camelcamelcamel"??

How is it living under that rock?

Good price for this, not the most well-known SSD but I've had 1 64Gb version in constant use in an HTPC for a while now and it's solid (:{)

Agreed. It's a tenner more than the 64GB drive, which itself is already excellent value. Hard to justify not going to 128 for this price

I know LOL. Just not been paying enough attention obviously.

IOPS are fairly low compared to the top of the range SSDs, but it's an SSD, it's not going to seem slow. I installed Ubuntu 14.04 onto my 64Gb last week and it's FAST.

Hot - bought one a few weeks ago for £44 through Flubit. Now tempted to get another one for my laptop

Did a Flubit on it and got offered £2.63 off by a company called Fireworks Direct with no reviews.
I politely declined.

Fireworks Direct is the company behind Flubit. There is nothing to be worried about, I bought my Crucial SSD through them when I Flubited it.

At that price it's almost worth getting one to hold "in stock" for the next time someone says "my laptop's really slow, can you have a look at it?". Don't suppose anyone knows if it's an "Advanced Format" drive - and hence won't work properly with Vista/XP? (And yes, I know XP is out of support and neither support TRIM, but upgrading to SSD can still eke out some life from them).

Great, bought the 64GB last week for £32 same brand, will return it now and get this instead.

Can one of the be used to replace a laptop 2.5 SATA HDD ?

My son have already trashed 2 HDDs in his laptop because I cant get him to understand that running up and down the stairs with his laptop whilst windows is running is asking for trouble.

If I fitted one of these, are they less prone to failure, (no moving parts) ?

You seem to have answered your own post,
yes these are ideal for laptops / portable devices because
A there are no moving parts, so no damage to media.
And B they draw less power so your battery will last longer

Never used flubit before but got my invitation today - 38.55 - cheers

Its the same size 2.5 inch as a standard laptop drive, but can be used in a desktop (may need a 3.5 inch adaptor).

Tried flubit and surprisingly its not too bad.

"£38.65"

I tried Flubit for the first time. £41.22. Would Suarez at £38.65

Haha, silly.

Mine is going in a laptop so I don't need a bracket. So i'd rather save the quid. Plus brackets are a quid on eBay if I need one in future.

Also, it's lukewarm...one word. I'm not being pedantic, it's just my friend Luke, is always cold...

Yuh, I like your deal though. Can't fault it. If I wanted a bracket and this was going into a desktop, i'm not sure which i'd pick. Having said that my 500gb evo ssd is currently sticky taped to the inside of my case. I'm really cheap.

Read the review in the first few posts before buying the transcend, I bought the sandisk.

yup, the transcend has low write speed and possible firmware issue:

Awful...http://ssd.userbenchmark.com/SpeedTest/330/SanDisk-SDSSDP128G



This is not a top performing SSD. It's not the best. If going for performance i'd go for a samsung evo personally as the speed/price ratio is excellent.

If you want boot up times that beat any HHD (non raid), you want to breath life into an aging laptop or you can't afford one of the faster SSD's I assure you this is a decent buy. My macbook has gone from a 30 second boot up time to around 10 with this installed. Photoshop loads considerably quicker and the whole system feels more responsive. I notice your benchmarks are from actual users, which I really like, but read the reviews from amazon. It's really not a bad SSD at all.
