I know HUKD loves its SSD deals and this looks a good one for ~1Tb.

29 in stock as at 7.30am

This particular drive has never been cheaper, but this price has been posted a few times over the last few days - all went cold. Why? 1) It's not Samsung Evo or Crucial MX100. 2) Nobody wants to spend the best part of 300 notes on an SSD.

Sadly, until all manufacturers drop the prices considerably, HUKD will keep on voting cold on every non-Samsung/Crucial deal.

Shame those voting cold have no idea this is the best SSD money can buy...oh well ignorance is bliss!!

Have some heat!!

might be worth a go using this on flubit/quidco as well if you're interested in it

Even if it's the best, the price is not right in 2014/2015. They should be able to make it more consumer affordable. I will not pay £300 for a SSD

This is a bargain considering Scan are offering the Ultra II version for £290 at the moment,band their price for this one is £352.

Hmmm, HUKD can be a fickle place and didn't see the previous deals on this one. I got a Sandisk SSD on a recent deal (120Gb - £40) and couldn't be happier - new lease of life for my PC.

@cojack - then don't pay £300 for a SSD. These are the 2014/2015 markets rates for ~1Tb. If you think it's too much get a small SSD for the OS and a regular hard drive for everything else.

This SSD is much better than mx100 & Samsung Evo. I posted the Amazon £299.98 deal and people voted cold.

This isn't Samsung or Crucial and yet it is voted hot.
If nobody wants to spend 300 notes then manufacturers would not make them and stores would not stock them.
If it's the best SSD money can buy or this SSD is much better than mx100 & Samsung Evo back up your claim with independent evidence not conjecture.
Your claims and comments help no one.

It's not Samsung Evo or Crucial MX100.



Neither brand is anything special when it comes to products or after sales support, those two tend to go hot because they're the cheapest at the moment and there's no difference between SSDs in practice for most people.

So this isn't going hot very fast because there have been lots of deals in the past few months for 1TB SSDs at £275-290. Unless Sandisk has a reputation for excellent customer support or comprehensive feature support (do they?) why pay £10+ extra?

This is a particularly well reviewed drive and close to the Samsung 850 Pro in terms of performance partly due to its consistency which is excellent. Plus it has a 10 year warranty so for me the £10-15 premium which equates to <5% of the price of the other deals you mentioned makes it an obvious purchase. Especially when you notice that the 850 Pro is still around £475.

Just get 5TB drive for about £100 odd nowadays

Not a bad deal I generally go for Samsung or Crucial but this is one of the best ssds there are.

Some comments are funny..

1. Its a great price for an awesome SSD
2. Be careful with this 10 years warranty- it's 10 years or 80TB tbw (written, whichever first)
To compare:
my 840 pro's have a 5 years warranty with 73TB tbw
my 850 pro's have a 10 years with 150TB tbw

Anyway deal for fantastic ssd.
Love my Samsung SSDs and I am glad I got them.

That's about 22.5GB per day for 10 years.

I once paid £350 for a 350MB hard drive, yes that's right, MB. So, taking into account the 20 years that have passed this is a veritable bargain.

Lucky you, my first external drive was an 80MB SCSI at £500!

Have some heat, I got an ultra 2 SSD from SanDisk and it's been great.

Lol - incredible prices eh, yes mine was a SCSI for my Amiga. There were I recall 20MB ext drives for getting on for £300.

awesome deal for anyone who actually appreciates the value of this ssd!

Now £10 cheaper!!

Very similar price on Amazon and scan

Heat added

Anyone that knows IT this is a pretty decent price for an excellent piece of kit.

Amazon matched the price. Its £289.99 now

For years SanDisk were selling bottom rung SSDs at bargain prices, which is absolutely fine of course as there's a market for that.

However, when they switched to making more competitive drives and pricing them higher they will struggle to shake their reputation for making slow drives. I really do think it's that simple.

I'm really tempted as 1TB could mean I can move all of my data stored on my NAS for faster local access and just use the NAS for backup and shared storage. Just now I just have a 250GB SSD for the OS and everything is stored on the NAS, but it's not as fast as I'd like for editing large RAW photo files.
