Got a CamelCamel alert for a price drop on this. Admittedly not the lowest it's been, but still a good price.

Dispatched and sold by Amazon.

Not a bargain ..cheaper at scan with possibiliy of free delivery..

The cheaper one on Scan is the SanDisk Pulse - 8,000 IOPS vs 81,000 on the Ultra II. Heat from me.

All SSDs are plenty fast unless you're running a intensive IO workload or benchmarks.

I only buy around £0.25-£0.30/GB. This one is £0.39/GB, so not worth it IMO.

Better to get Crucial M550 or MX100
or if you were lucky like me, Intel 730 480GB for £109 / £0.267/GB delivered (after £30off rebate)

Recon it's worth spending the extra £7 or so on this over the standard pulse version that is £42.98 on Amazon? Not sure how much the IOPS and write speeds this version gives will benefit gaming over the standard Sandisk 120GB SSD.

Iops are basically how many operations it can do in a second, ie how many read requests per second. Requests can be files, or directory scanning,etc The higher the iops figure the better.

Write speeds are often hidden because they are slower, (on microsd cards sometimes really low), does write speeds matter, YES! hibernation/sleep and pages files are writeable files, so don't think your hdd/sdd doesn't write to the drive often IT DOES.

first rule of SSDs: disable page file.

also, hibernation is not enabled by default, only by vendor-tampered, bloatwary OSs.

a clean Win7 x64 SP1 install will run like a dream. before updates.

Went to buy this yesterday and when clicked on the deal it was showing £53 so i emailed amazon told them about this deal got a reply to reorder and got it £45.99 today.
