Reliable, just as any Samsung SSD. I've had the 240GB older model for almost 3 years, still in my laptop, 100% condition by HDsentinel.

It’s not a Samsung EVO but then again it is only £82 so a bargain

Amazon returns are far easier and this is a sata SSD no going wrong size

speculatrix

I find searching for specific items easier on ebuyer, I once ordered some full sized DDR3 DIMMS by mistake on Amazon because I searched for 4GB DDR SODIMM and in amongst the items were some full-sized ones and the pictures were not correct! It's easier to shop at ebuyer!

speculatrix

reviews look good for this drive, ideal for boosting the performance on an old desktop. just ordered one. thanks!

Didn’t need a cable as already had the data backed up on a 2nd drive (installed hdd in place of dvd drive), so created a bootable usb installer and did a clean install of OS X onto the new drive (y) :D You could always pick up a 2.5” SATA usb caddy (less than a tenner) and stick the old drive into that :)

theres no '£2 discount at checkout ' ive just looked

What cable/housing did you use to initially backup before swapping?

Should be fine - just fitted one of the integral ssd’s into a mid 2012 MacBook Pro (y) (y)

I have a 2012 non retina MacBook Pro would this be a direct swap?

I dont think they are pretending these are anything but the lowest end of the market. It a good price for a basic SSD. Its the price I paid for my Palit branded one. You would be hard pressed to find any difference between any of the basic SSDs.

scottbrace

Kingston released a bunch of SSD's for review, and then switched alot of the hardware out for cheaper components when they were sold to the masses. Might be worth considering if your looking to buy an SSD, Kingston have a pretty poor reputation

You forgot the other reason: If you do many large file transfers/accesses/writes. It's niche though.

dfunked

In that case it's definitely not worth it unless you want to obsess over benchmarks (and this is coming from someone with a PM961 as a boot drive in one PC and a 960 Evo in another) nvme drives are either a "because I can" or a "because it's all I can fit!" purchase.

No! Always have an internal/external HDD as backup. Although ssd reliability has improved when they go down there will most likely be no warning and you will lose EVERYTHING on it.

plewis00

It really annoys me (Windows 10), they give with one hand and take with another. What is with Cortana trying to be your mate all the time, I literally want to smash it when the thing starts talking to me in a robot voice, 'a bit of WiFi here, a little bit of WiFi there', etc. what is this rubbish? Also Windows Defender deciding it knows what's best, it's gone round deleting apps that it thinks might be dodgy (as far as I can tell it's anything associated with cryptocurrency recently). It's a shame as it's pretty good otherwise in many respects but really really bad in others.

birdsmakesound

Thanks, got it for 75 basically.

therealjohnpeat

Whilst this is true, WIndows 10 is doing it's absolute level-best to ensure you can't do that by progressively grinding them to a halt :(

therealjohnpeat

"more reliable and durable than a hard drive" What a time to be alive eh? SSDs were - for quite a long time - time-bombs. Their reliability was laughably poor They've improved - no doubt about that - I'm not sure I'm ready to accept a statement like the above quite yet tho. I have an HDD here which is older than the oldest retail SSD in existence and it still works - I have HDDs in-use which were in-use when SSDs were popping like cheap lightbulbs - I think it's too early for the SSD industry to be crowing about reliability... Best we can say right now is "SSDs aren't the disaster they once were - you should probably use them" and leave it there...

Cheapest around
plewis00

Fair enough. But no, I don't buy from China at this price point as I don't need the hassle if it is bad for any reason, not that it should be but I can accept slightly lower performance (that I probably won't notice in the real-world) for UK support should the worst happen.

JMac_D

Yes it was serious. If your looking for best prices and not performance. Of course if you dont buy memory stuff from China then its no use to you but may be for others reading the thread.

JMac_D

That link gives you the kingston info though and if you want to see others just do a search on that site. Just disregard the comparison. Its actual real time tests. People have to download the software from the site when you are submitting test results.

plewis00

??? I’m not sure if this is actually serious or not and I’ve used Kingspec. They’re fine but I never buy memory stuff from China sellers.

JMac_D

You could try a kingspec one from AliExpress.

Good price. If you've got SATA 3, then consider the Crucial MX500 for £62.

upset.brown.pant

2015 prices are back

paulpso

Half the people getting these probably only have sata2 anyway, so it's going to be limited by the bus regardless.

plewis00

Ok. Agreed. But is this really a common occurrence? I know there are edge cases, like video editing professionals, etc. But for most of us, hard disks excel at storing video because they are sequential data by nature so why would you be frequently moving movies between SSDs? TBH, I’m pretty sure the Kingston is the cheapest big brand drive, maybe by only a few quid but still.

There's always that one guy that thinks he knows everything because he's read a few benchmark reviews.

They're £4.47 north of the border!! Not worth the hastle. Could rgue that it's not the half price they advertise but they could argue it's an alcohol promo and therefore not available in Scotland. Not too shabby for £1.50 if you can get it. Has a decent non artificial taste.

I don't want to guess- but maybe you can find some answer in this video:

brainsys

It appears the prices drops are, if anything, increasing atm. So I do expect them to drop further. However, I doubt there is far to go on the smaller SSDs but the bigger (500GB+) will continue to become increasingly affordable.

Rabmac1

Thanks for answering my question. Out of interest do you expect the cost to come down further or is now a good time to buy?

neblogai

Production of NAND is finally catching up with the demand- and at lower production cost (64 layer 3D NAND) than before. Prices now seem to have come down to late 2016 level.

Rabmac1

Anyone know why are we seeing the price of SSDs coming down at the moment?

Having a Dram chip means that it will be faster especially for writing and wont bottleneck when tranferring large amounts of data. Cards without a Dram chip will slow massively when trasferring large amounts of data and users may experience micro stuttering when dealing with demanding applications. The cheaper cards have less storage memory as without a Dram chip they use reserved space as a cache, which is much slower.

Magnets

A400s are DRAM-less AFAIK, and only have a 3 year warranty MX500 seems just such great value compared to all these cheaper models. £10 more gets you DRAM, a 5 year warranty and 20GB more space

bandit17

So how is this compared to Crucial MX500 or Samsung Evo 860 (with Far Cry 5)? This one is slightly cheaper but it is 20GB less storage.

fiqqer

£10 too much for a basic 480 gb ssd. For £10 more you can buy the better crucial MX500 and Samsung Evo 850.

What a cheap move to highlight 110Mb/s speed in their title without detailing that it is for read speeds. At least in the spec sheets further down, it does indicates write speeds up to 15Mb/s.
