good price for enterprise drive.

Heat added ...

Is it me? or others seeing it as Scan showing £68.14? I did check today only page besides the link for deal and can't see £63.59.

I can't see it at the cheaper price either

Also free UPS access point not there, costing £4.79.

Hmm it is, it's a newsletter promo only email and I think HUKD sometimes removes the part which states that (as I guess it thinks it's an affiliate link?)

This link should work

Not the prettiest of benchmark scores.

Also note, no fixing kit and no Linux support either.

Yep that's correct. Worth signing up to as they usually have decent parts a bit cheaper than usual

I have an evo 840 250gb bought for about £40 via Currys clearance offer still can't bring myself to use it due to the slow down issue being publicized. I opted to buy 2x MX100 256GB and a BX100 250GB to upgrade 2x laptops and a desktop. I've been happy with their performance for my everyday purposes. The Samsung was supposed to go into another desktop considering flogging that and getting this X110, any thoughts guys?

I have a dell laptop can I replace the HDD for this SSD, anyone know?
Or is this SSD for desktop only?

Thanks.

Your laptop would have to be very old not to allow SATA SSD to be used with it.

Perhaps if you state model of Dell laptop someone can tell you if BIOS support ACHI mode.

Done typo in last post, ACHI should be AHCI.

Dell model: INSPIRON N5010
Dell model no: 5010-4464

Just wanted to know if this SSD can replace the dead hard drive currently in my laptop.

good price - hot frm me!

Scan, bleh. They got worse as time went by, getting more like Ebuyer with their shadey exploits of grey areas of law to refuse RMAs. The last time I ordered from them they tried to get out of me returning a laptop within the 7 days DSR by saying I "broke the seal" on the software (the already installed OS), and wouldn't even let me return the laptop if I paid for the OS. So, buy a £1000 laptop? It's a p.o.s? Sorry you can't return it because you turned it on and briefly used software worth £50. Complaining made no difference. Only until I started shouting all over the internet then they approved it to shut me up. Wouldn't touch a company that behaves like this.

Yup - here are some variations of your laptop (mostly with aftermarket SSDs)

Changing the drive isn't totally trivial though, here's a video demo:

If I can save one soul from the ordeal I endured with them, then it will have given meaning to my suffering.
Amazon all the way, their customer service is bulletproof.

I'm hardly an expert on SSDs, but didn't Samsung release a couple of updates to fix the issues with the 840?

paid over £100 for mine,.... heat

Excellent deal. Heat added :):):)

I can't decide between this or the OCV 240gb ARC 100. Could someone please recommend one, I'm an SSD newbie.

AFAIK they released one in Oct 14 then another was planned Mar 15 but not heard more info on web.

As drive still sealed could flog on ebay for £70-£80, I reckon I'd nett £60 after fees, etc.

A lot of reviews rave about the evo 840 but to me looking at some of the graphs on Techpowerup it didn't seem I was missing out on a lot of performance when bought the MX100 & BX100. I also feel the conclusion of this review would also be also better if review price was same as deal now, Hexus review of Sandisk Ultra Plus (OEM name X110).

Almost every single online store will have a similar rant.

Mine is with Overclockers. They're on my "never again" list after a horrendous purchase/service experience with them. Ebuyer as well. Never had to use Scan's CS so they're still fine with me.

I'll happily take that 840 off your hands for what you paid for it.

thanks. this will replace my old 128GB sandisk x110

I have to second the bad things said about Scan's customer service. I bought a top of the range motherboard from them a while back. It was suffering form random reboots from the get go. I contact Scan and they said that I would have to send it to them for testing. Since I wanted to avoid the return postage I drove to their warehouse in Bolton (an hour away) where they "checked" it. I was there while they were doing it and basically consisted of them booting it up declaring that it was fine as it didnt have a reboot in 5 mins. They refused to replace it.

So I had to send it off the Gigabyte at my cost and got it back 3 weeks later with a new CMOS chip. In the meantime I had to get a different motherboard to use as a daily driver and then later sell it on eBay.

Shocking customer service. Their nickname as Scam is well deserved. Won't be buying from them ever again no matter how cheap they have stuff.

what's the best price currently for a 1/2 tb or 1tb ssd?

I've been using them as pretty much my sole component supplier for way over a decade and never had a major problem. I don't get why they get so much hate here... I honestly believe a lot of people just don't fully know what they are doing when it comes to building PC's but are too stubborn to admit the PC perhaps isn't working properly because they've installed it incorrectly or bought incompatible parts! I sold brand new water cooling on eBay a few months back and the buyer was adamant it was faulty, demanding a refund and that I also pay the return postage as well. I wrote a step-by-step guide on how to install it and it turned out he forgot to plug one of the power cables in! ...And that's just one case of me selling a component... imagine how much Scan have to deal with people like that!

The worst experience I've had was their CS hanging up mid call dead on closing time on a Friday. But assuming they don't get paid overtime can you really complain about that?

All the in-house RMA's have been dealt with swiftly, couriers always paid for even if it's beyond the first month. They take typically 3 days from collection to a refund/replacement being at my door. I've even sent a £250 GPU back that I know I broke by scratching the tracers trying to remove the heatsink... but that seemed to pass their super strict RMA team by?

The way I see it, if somebody isn't 100% proficient at building PC's, just pay the extra few quid for Scansure as you are covered no matter what, or just pay a bit more from Amazon. Obviously it's pointless buying Scansure with an SSD as you could probably train a chimp to install one of these!

Every company has their goods and bads I feel. Personally I've never used scan - but I've never had an issue with say eBuyer like a lot of people have and they generally used to be my sole supplier for computer goods. You could say the same when people say Tmobile, Orange, EE, Vodaphone, Three etc. are appalling with their CS or with internet providers - always going to be some bad apples regardless of the company. As always though, if you really are planning on returns it has to be Amazon. Don't really know how they manage to stay profitable with how lax they are with the returns X)

+1 for scan having truly terrible customer service

they lost some ram I sent them back as it died undrler warranty, then called me a liar and that I never sent it them (although it was in the same box as two other pieces of hardware that they received fine) then after a month or arguing they refunded me the current price of the ram which was about half that I originally paid

sleezy **** the lot of them

I don't think that Amazon are profitable on the whole except for a small profit for the Christmas period! Very large sales but very little/small profits. They have lost money in 2014 and years before that.

The prices are not the best even if the returns are generally very good. You always pay a premium for shopping@Amazon.

Whether that has anything to do with their tax status and possible creative accounting I do not know. You never know.

any chance of discussing the SSD and not your personal experience with Scan??

Tempted to get one or two of these for some extra space.

Amazon make loads of profit the thing is with them every bit they make is invested again so this is why when you look up fiance info about them it looks like they do not make a profit.

A lot of companies have positive and negatives I could tell stories from loads of them but at times its the customers who make things worse with going into it with demands and bad attitude.

sa_sheffwed story to me showed this you left a lot of details out on age of mboard and what do you expect them to do with you there it takes hours to test with them slotting you in when they are free clearly you wanted it done urgently plus even if Scan had found it faulty manufactures have deals that the sellers have to return it to them for repair anyway so you still would of had to wait weeks.

fwiw.

Who will honour the 5 year warranty ?

The X110 seems to be intended for OEMs, not consumers. It seems to be a rebadged Ultra-Plus SSD with a longer warranty?
sandisk.co.uk/pro…10/

Scan lists the X110 as having direct manufacturer support. ie. washing their hands of any claims after the first 12 months.

downloads.sandisk.com/dow…pdf

But the above Sandisk document clearly states all warranty claims must be dealt with through the original reseller.

Scan probably won't 'wash their hands' with the claim. My Hazro monitor packed in after 2 years, and Scan arranged a courier to pick it up and then they sent it off to Hazro from Scan HQ. What you'll probably find is if it packs in and you contact Scan they will provide you with Sandisk contact details in order to get an RMA number, etc.... or you could just get them from the Sandisk website:
