There ya go
Would possibly opt to buy from eBuyer for £125.00 - ebuyer.com/474…g25
Good price with desktop kit.
First post and no "be gentle", hot from me.
Nice price for the SSD, but MobyMemory have some mixed reviews
Never heard of the retailer? What are they like? Price is good although the bundle whilst useful for some is probably only a few quids worth.
Good price.
Just my personal experience but I got this model and it died on me after 2 weeks after I accidently cut the power from psu. I know they're sensitive to this kind of occurrence but too soon for me to risk exchanging for the same. I opted to bite the bullet after getting a refund from amazon and I got the best i.e samsung 840 pro 256gb. It's working like a charm 3 months later on Windows 8 (which I am still waiting for my start button to be returned!) just a heads up that this may happen with ssd's, especially the sandisk from my single experience like I said. never had this or heard of it happening with sd card though.

I would buy a BMW if I could afford it, but I can't so I by the next best thing! Reviews on this and the Extreme are very good, you will always get a few people that experience issues with any brand of SSD.

Try cutting the power on your machine now to see if the Samsung 840 Pro dies and come back to us with a clear comparison, you may even have a crappy PSU!!

EDIT: By the way just joking about the above, don't want you billing me for a new Samsung Pro!

I have had a few friends use them and they seem fine, one friend had an issue where they shipped the wrong memory card and they dealt with it pretty quick and put it right. Have seen a few reviews of them where people are unhappy though, I would personally buy from Ebuyer and pay the extra £13, if you are on a tight budget could be best to use these though.

Thanks man... I'd rather throw my extra £13 in the toilet and play Russian roulette with my money and this company than use ebuyer, LOL there customer service is sooo bad..

Damn its a shame the Samsung promotion has ran out now...

I'm lurking around SSDs for months and still didn't actually buy one... but after reading all there is to read about them, I would stick with Samsung for now. They just don't have any competition. I hate this, but it's a fact.

Got a 128gb 830 Pro in my main machine, and a 128gb 840 pro in the GFs laptop, can confirm they're both pretty amazing drives

I am on the hunt for a 256gb one for Steam game installs though, and considering Sandisk for that... though admittedly unless there's a decent saving I'll probably end up plumping for another Samsung

The main thing I like about those is that they have their own controller, not the Sandforce.

You better shout Samsung and tell them to do another promo... (_;)
The controller issue has been done and dusted for a long time. There are other options than Samsung even if you want to avoid SF chips.
Great SSD, Great Price. HOT.

Though its not a 840 Pro, my 830 256GB has taken many many PSU power cuts (flipping PSU switch) in its 7 months of use.
Don't appear to be UK VAT registered. Bad as this would cost me over £20 and it's now effectively a grey import. Happy to be corrected.

Hate to say it but would rather buy from eBuyer or DABS

It's a limited company registered in the UK that applies 20% VAT to the order, I hope they are VAT registered!!!

No mention of VAT on their website and they just say 'tax included'. Always sets alarm bells off with me.

They charge 20% Value Added Tax, if they were charging this and not registered it is them who would face years in prison, I am 99% sure they will be registered. Bet this is a template website used by a small business and the "Tax" text was never changed to "VAT".

Like you said probably better to buy from Ebuyer, they sell the SSD without the kit for £125, buying a bracket and cable is about £3 to £4, so for the sake of £3/£4 might be better to use Ebuyer.
Moby Memory has new management this year. They are a lot better these days!
Price up to 129.99
LOL just logged in nice update Zefram are you the SanDisk 256GB Ultra Plus SSD police??!! My deal competed with yours for the same product and well.......... mine got hotter, don't cry about it LOL.

You obviously have too much time on your hands!
