SSD prices seem to be slowly getting back to affordable levels again. Got one to make my old dell laptop bearable to use again.

Seems like a pretty good price. Hot

4 left in stock, there were 11 left after I bought one, this doesn't look like it will last long.

Mine lasted about 3 months. A 128gb. Replaced under warranty no bother but a real pita.

Mac stopped booting. Disc manager stopped being able to see it. A win10 machine also failed to see it so i couldnt even reformat it. No idea what happened.

Given how much of a nightmare it is to change the drive in my dell, I may well cancel then. It's not something I want to do more than once.

Ive got this exact one, bought from amazon around a year or so ago. It has performed faultlessly and gave a huge improvement in my macbook pro laptops speed. I use sandisk memory usb sticks too, which have also been completely reliable.

The same happened to me. Windows 10 had warned me that something was wrong but I doubted it. Did you get warnings?

I would imagine they are mostly fine.

73.46 now. Or have I missed something somewhere...

I bought this directly from Amazon July 2015 for £64.71 at least prices are slowly dropping now

I just checked and I got one of these in November 2015 for £39.99 albeit as a lightning deal so they still have a bit to go to get back to that level but it's good to see prices creeping down again.

What surprises me is DDR3 RAM price. I just checked and my 16gb set which I paid 35 quid for sells for 120 now! Laptop SODIMM.

Well DDR4 is all the rage now. Most likely, production from DDR3 has reduced and shifted to DDR4, hence the price increase + the weaker pound of course.

No

Mine was in a mac and i received no warnings. Just switched it on one day to get a picture of a flashing disk which means the os is missing.

I mounted the ssd in a caddy but, despite that being the way in which i had originally formatted and copied to the disk i couldnt get an osx or win 7/10 machine to recognise the drive at all...even to show any error or fault.

The staff at pcworld/currys said that ssds dont fail and it must be something i'd done but Sandisc replaced without issues.

"The staff at pcworld/currys said" <insert statement which is incorrect / untrue here>

Good and fast SSD, my 128GB failed after 3.5 years

Well it turned up and is genuine, that was my biggest concern.
