Heat added, although the £/GB is a higher than a larger capacity drive this will enable my older laptop to have a new life! Not bad for under £25!
FWIW my local (Newtownabbey) is currently under going a new shop fitting. When I was in on Friday they had only 3 SSDs available (silly overpriced larger capacity ones) and most of the shop floor was devoid of any stock!
Sadly no bargains to be had...

£0.39 per GB? meh.

How do I find out if my net book (Lenovo S10-2) has a sata 2 or 3 speed port?

It will work with either drive anyway

Not the best price when comparing to recent larger capacity deals. It is a good deal for just an OS drive.

You should be able to use it still on SATA 1. You will need to use a jumper pin to bridge 2 of the pins on the hard drive plug or mono pins. This will limit the read/write speed enough to allow your computer to use it. Should be in the instructions for the drive.

The SATA HD just crashed on my Dell Vostro 1710. Its a Seagate Momentus 7200 3 (250GB). Could i just replace it with one of these? The cable linking the dead HD to the HD1 port says JAL 60 SATA cable on it.

Thanks for any help.

Thanks for the advice, might stick with the HDD.

Have you got a link to sandisk page with jumper information please.

It's cheap enough to buy and hope the auto fallback to sata 1 is ok and that hopefully the chipset / I/O listed as being in the laptop/netbook above is NCQ and AHCI capable. If not and providing the sata chipset is not one of those really troublesome ones(old) with the fallback it should still perform better than the drive you have in the laptop/netbook.

check drive dimensions if netbook (with an ssd already in place)

Brilliant just what I wanted, after missing out the other day, I want this just to use as a 2nd drive on my laptop to learn how to use Windows 8, my laptop has 2 bays for hard drives and I don't want to over write my windows 7, perfect

This will work in just about any laptop or desktop, unless really old. The SATA connectors are the same for laptops and desktops and I have had no problems using any version of SATA disk with any version of onboard SATA.

Heat added, just bought one for me dad, as he has an old desktop that this will breathe new life into.

Have just scanned the netbook with HWiNFO32 and returned the following results: Drives; SATA 3 GB/s wdc wd1600bevt-22zct0 [160 GB, 8MB]. Guess this makes it SATA 2? Would I notice any day to day speed increase and boot time? Tempted just to order one for £25 ands see what happens.

I know this is pedantic but Via controllers used to have some issues with sata II if drive could not be set to sata gen 1 via drive management software or pin (eg the auto fallback failed). I had a few as I had 20 odd various chipset pc's hundreds of addon sata / cards / pata > sata adapters etc.

As you say though I'd expect things are now eradicated with post 2008 hardware

If you can live with the storage space being reduced . I would buy it

Not a bad price. Tight for a long term Win7 install - IDK about 8. About perfect as a boot drive for my htpc though.

Don't forget 1% Quidco...

Or 1.05% TCB

Its not so much the actual read/write speed that can make a difference but the seek time. Seek time is the time to access the next block of information and that could be anywhere on a disk. With a HD this is relatively slow whereas with a SSD it is almost instant.

If u r running XP there are a few hoops u will need to jump though for best speed. If>XP then less hoops if u r copying ur disk and none iirc if u r reinstalling.

Go for it.

Thanks for the help all, Ordered.

Will be used on Windows 7

Probably a good match for an intel NUC or netbook

As debated in the Currys/ebay thread: this item is OEM with 1 year warranty, rather than the non-OEM version with 3 years warranty. Yes, the Currys webpage does state both warranty periods, so if you would enjoy a fight for any warranty claim in years 2 & 3 then do take a screendump of the Currys webpage. Still decent value at 1 year warranty. Heat.

capriboycraig - seriously? How often do you restart your HTPC?

I must admit I do notice the difference switching between machines with & without an SSD. I know there is no performance gain when playing games, however the fact that I turn on my gaming rig and have a game loaded up in under 60 seconds is a big plus for me. Shame I am slowed down by the fact that I still have to wait for others to load up, however in PlanetSide 2 as I get fragged so much the fact that the reload is so quick makes the game much more enjoyable!

I was deliberating on how many I should purchase and decided just to go for one, wish I had bought more now....

Oh and as for warranty - I worry more about backups rather than replacing the drive when it fails (which you should always accept that it will)
I keep forgetting this is HotUKdeals - information like this is probably best kept to another forum - especially with the "love" you get in here!

I can't believe it took me over 1 hour to buy just 1

Out of stock

Darn it...

Atm I'm starting it as and when. With an SSD fitted it'll boot to desktop before I sit down and change channel (no sleep on n54l). Eventually it'll stay on 24/7 but not until I've got a new media cabinet to hide it.

I've had an SSD for over 2yrs in my day to day laptop - I love it. Just fitted a small 128gb into the gaming rig to encourage me to use it more.

Nice. Anybody managed to register their drive with Sandisk to qualify for warranty years 2 & 3? kb.sandisk.com/app…st/

Ordered this when it was in stock but just got an email cancelling my order.

Thanks I would have been expecting an email to tell me mine was also cancelled had you seen my request earlier but the one I ordered has been sent.


19/07/2014 15:17 for mine and it's on the way. So it must be your local shop had none in stock to forward on.

Did a firmware check using SanDisk's SSD toolkit utility:

mp3support.sandisk.com/SSD…exe

It said my current firmware was X2316RL and tried to update to firmware X2306RL. The update failed, presumably because X2306RL is a previous firmware.

Not a particularly impressive experience.
