Its a good price but there are plenty of 120gb SSD drives for this price.

This does not have a ram/cache chip. so performance will bottleneck.

I'd choose a ssd with a cache such as the ADATA SU 650 120GB SSD at this price point - around £36.50.

Only Samsung, Sk hynix, and Micron (Crucial) manufacture both NAND and DRAM, which explains why more drives are being produced without Dram (cache) and which explains why the DRAM manufacturers produce the best performing drives.

This is WD's first foray into the SSD market (this and the blue) as such they are small fry at the moment and are at the bottom end of the market. However they have bought Sandisk so perhaps that will indicate they plan to get bigger soon.

Performance wise this is on par with most SSDs at this price range there really is not much to choose between any of them, Palit, Kingston, Adata or Sandisk.

Looks like Windows 10 will consume most of the 120GB. That’s why I’m looking for a 240GB atm

Mine is a lean boot drive with windows office and essential software and that has taken 90 gb. so 120gb doesn't leave a lot of room. its workable, depending on what you use it for.

I have a 250 gb ssd and this is more than enough. data/ videos and downloads go to an an HDD

... and remember to run Disk Clean-up, including System Files to remove all the surplus updates installation files and previous versions for as lean an OS capacity as possible.
Picked up a 'Like New' damaged packaging AKA. Brand new with smashed box

256GB NVME m.2 SSD from Amazon Warehouse using 20% off, for £63

Much better value however this is a decent, if not fairly normal SSD price?
Finally ssd are coming down in price. While watching ssd prices for last 2 years we all didn't notice bread prices have risen
Thanks OP.

Here is the Thing, my laptop and gaming PC have SSD for system loading. But to be honest the "bangs per buck" are on the fastest non SSD hard drives.
Until the manufactures stop making huge profits on the SSD's many people wont pay the price.
A standard SSD should start at about 740GB for about £55
Prices down please Companies.........
120GB SSD's were about 10 quid cheaper 2 years ago

Isn't odd how with all the different SSD manufacturers in the market, none of them are prepared to sell theirs £10 cheaper than everyone else and make an absolute killing. Anyone would think it was down to a shortage of memory chips or something.

The one company that has done this is Crucial, but they are now producing larger capacity drives and are leaving the low end to the the manufacturers who cannot compete on performance.

Crucial's competitor at the higher end is Samsung. Crucial have undercut them by between £10 -20.

Crucials aim is to to take over the market however Samsung have a good reputation and have loyal customers built on by the samsung evo 850 and 860 series of SSDS who are prepared to pay the extra based on their good experences with their flash drives

Heat added for the deal.

As for the Crucial/Samsung debate - I would never buy memory from anyone other than Crucial - they just can't be beaten on warranty! I have dealt with warranty issues across the board and Crucial is the one that stands out, simply share the serial number and they provide an advanced exchange, no fuss. None of this "proof of purchase" nonsense other manufacturers seem to demand!
