I've had more ssds fail in the last few years than I've had mechanical drives fail. An Ssd just seems to die but a mechanical gives a little notice sometimes. Great price though!


You'd have to be daft to trust 2TB of important data to any storage device without having at least one backup, preferably two.

I use 1TB SSDs for storage, but anything important is backed up elsewhere (as it was when I used mechanical HDDs).

Tempting but thats a lot of cash!

That's a lot of SSD for that

Price is good, but once you add in potential currency charges and shipping, probably better ordering from Scan where they have the MX300 2tb for £491

NOTE: as usually, DON'T let the Amazon convert the currency for you ... so pay in EURO to get the deal

shipping is standard amazon charge and currency conversion is also done at better rates by amazon. That will be inclusive price of all taxes and charges with only postage to pay

Mind sharing which brands you had that failed on you? Thanks.

I've never had an SSD fail, i have had mechanical external drives fail but only when they were very old.

If there is important data on any drive it is best to have a backup or two regardless of the amount of data it is.

I don't really get the difference between losing a 128GB of data and losing 2TB of data. Most of the items i have that can't be easily replaced amount to less than 100GB either way.

I guess there's a general trend of the more important data lost, the more inconvenience you're likely to suffer. Sure, that's not always going to hold true, but I'd guess that most people would rather lose some important data than all their important data.

I can see that accumulating multiple TBs of irreplaceable photos or videos wouldn't be too difficult, if you're the kind of person who's heavily into photography/videography, or some other data heavy hobby/profession.

I must just not be very sentimental. Anything i am bothered about is stored on multiple devices and in the cloud. For me my PC hard drives are for programs and games, everything else is on network drives(for work) or cloud external storage for(for personal).

Neither am I, but I have no doubt that thousands of people around the country have god only knows how much irreplaceable data stored in a single location.

Backups and redundancy are words that lose their appeal to many when they realise they'll have to buy another drive (or cloud subscription service) to store the same stuff they already have on their PC at home.

In other words, people are daft....but that's not exactly news!

Any important data should always be back up 3 times i have never had issues with a ssd touch wood

Ocz I've had 2 of those fail, but I don't think they make them anymore. And one SanDisk. The above is right though. All important data is backed up. I suppose of you play a lot of games and at the size of them these days then this is going to be great!

Amazing how high Nand prices have risen, I bought a Sandisk ultra 1T for £149 @ebuyer begining of last year (I think) & this hot at £450 ! Inflation is a killer....

It’s not so much inflation, it’s the value of the pound which has destroyed prices.
