The Ultra Plus is miles better, but this is still ok as an upgrade from a hard drive.

So is this worth the extra £2.53 more?

If you have to get a 64GB, yes. But then think about it, ~12 more and you get a 128GB.

Definitely.

£41 for a 128gb on ebay new

128Gb drives should be at this kind of price point.

now £32.46, still a good price.

it says SATA III 6Gb/s in the title but quotes SATA II speeds of 280/270MB/s in the description..

It's worth dropping an extra £10 for the 128gb version a standard windows installation is around the 35gb mark which leaves very little room for applications/games.

These drives are simply too small for modern OS's and programs. Far better value to double the storage size for an extra few quid. These are a false economy imo...

Is there a spare slot in those 199 Dell's to fit one of these?

I would just spend £15 more and get a better ssd with twice the capacity

Cheap but as pointed out you would have trouble getting a modern OS on it. I have a 100GB partition just for my OS (Windows 7) and it only has about 10GB remaining on it. Once all the Service packs, drivers, .NET Framework, Direct X, C++ etc are all installed it soon mounts up. My first HDD was 6GB and I got Windows 95 and all my programs on it. How things change.

By 'modern OS' I think you mean 'recent version of Windows'. Any Linux distribution would have absolutely no problem fitting on this. I've got a headless server running Arch on a crappy laptop drive, I think it might be the 60gb drive I took out of my gen 1 PS3 when I upgraded. I'm thinking of getting one of these to replace it, I'm worried my server crap out on me at some point if I don't.

You've missed the point ikomu was making.

I have a computer I only use to watch films on with my tv, this is small but would be ideal for that but as people are saying £12 more for double the space would definitely be worth it.

which modern OS's ?

I have a netbook/laptop running linux and am using under 10GB with all apps etc installed

Probably depends on what apps you use I guess but wouldn't expect the average user to have 100GB used just with applications and OS

Not nessecarily. A fresh Windows8 install is more the 20GB mark but even then this type of drive is suited for people building or converting an old PC into a HTPC/Streaming machine where nothing will be saved on it.

I've got an old Dell CoreDuo machine (ex-council) in my living room with only a 75GB HDD that stream movies via Plex, games via Steam and music via Xbox Music all from the main PC in another room and all that is on the HDD is Win8, the streaming software and some apps.

He's not referring to Windows. Windows 8 happily fits on 32GB and 64GB tablets.

I remember running Windows 7 on a 30GB SSD. Maybe he had installed Battlefield 4 with all the expansions?

I'm comfortably running win 7 ultimate on my 64gb Samsung, with all my data on normal platter drives.
