Gone for another, ssd prices will no doubt rise in the coming weeks/months

Was going to order but will wait until released, if it stays at this price it may have a beneficial impact on reducing prices on similar items from other manufacturers sources. Thanks.

It`s available at Ebuyer at a much higher price. Don`t think you will see one much cheaper anytime soon...

Honestly don't see that happening at all, with the pound to dollar being what it is prices are more likely to go up, this is super cheap too, at least 1/4 off the price of another decently branded ssd

​would it be a worthwhile upgrade?

Thanks OP, great price!

Nice - thanks Frank

500Gb for £90 seems like a no-brainer.

Amazon done a "Pre-Order" offer a while back for a SD card, amazing price offered on the back of it was a great price but a very long wait..... When they got the stock in months later, they cancelled all of the orders saying there was a pricing error...... So not voting but not wasting my time either - despite needing one.

​I remember that card. I ordered one, didn't get any notification that it was cancelled. Checked my order history and the item wasn't there.

Knew it was a miss price, but was in it to win (lose)it.

Ordered. Thanks. Scorchio!

​yes



wouldn't he be cutting his storage in half to get the higher speed?

guess it depends on priorities...

Users who choose to take an SSD over the default HDD of the PS4 Pro can look forward to speeds ramping up to 6 Gbps. To put it in perspective, the first PS4 model featured a SATA II interface, meaning that the fastest speed it could aspire to was 3 Gbps.

WD Blue was associated with budget end HDDs for notebooks, I assume same applies for this SSD. I'd stick with tried and tested reliable desktop SSDs like EVOs.

It's a good price for 500GB though.

But it's not sustained read / write speeds that make ssd fast, so it doesn't really matter.

Thanks for replying to my pm and sending me the discount code Frank

This is an old Sandisk X400 in a snazzy blue box, albeit with an updated firmware, There aren't many 500GB SSDs slower than this one.
