All SanDisk SSD Discounts, Offers and Sale - August 2019
When I'm thinking that I payed £99 for 256gb less than 2 years ago.... (mad)
That kind of damage is definitely not the fault of the drive itself, but rather fault with the power deliver side with either a poor PSU and dodgy quality cables, or dodgy quality molex to data adapter.
SanDisk Plus drives are not recommended as they're dramless and often fail quicker. They use some type of usb controller between the nand which is how they get to sell the SSD so cheap. I'd go for any dram ssd - you'll see the difference if you use it as an boot drive.
If it was the fault of the connector then it could still happen and not damage it but burn the drives contacts as the plastic and the contacts can have different current/temp ratings. If it caused a power line to be connected to the drive’s dateline then that could easily cause an to over-current situation that would blow the drives contacts but break connection long before reaching the limit of the psu’s connector...
I thought that when I first saw it but the connector was untouched and am still using it.
According to Camelcamelcamel this is pretty much the cheapest is been on Amazon so not sure how you got it for £30?
Looks like iPhone X case
Got this for £30 few weeks ago on amazon :D
Could this be used on an Xbox one!?
In a word, size. I have my pioneer one on my key ring. Speed is great twice as fast as my quickest USB stick.
Prob worth going for the 860 Evo at the same price over this? Slightly faster write and read speeds
Yeah this drive has dram
they are so confusing :( this one has DRAM right?? Sandisk SSD PLUS is the DRAM-less ? thanks
Sign up to the amazon credit card and get £30 off! Got the 1TB model for £99
No 'advantage'. It actually IS cheaper to buy a Caddy. But, the bottom line is that not everybody knows how to do that. And the people that usually say that comment seem to forget that HUKD is about finding 'X' at the best price. So, it shouldn't matter that you can make an alternative yourself, If you want to buy 'X', this is where you can get 'X' for the best price
Genuine question I’m asking myself now.... I’ve bought the 500gb this morning. What’s the advantage of this??? Apart from ruggedness
Brace yourself for the 'You're better off buying a mSATA SSD and putting it in a Caddy...' brigade. They'll be here any minute now! XD
Is 42£ now ?
Ordered thanks for the post!
Too cheeky.. XD
Lol that 660p has been £105 for months, then just when this promotion comes around......£113.85.... hmm.
Look like there all gone (mad)
So apparently Western digital had a 13 minute power outage which is going to make their SSDs 10% more expensive. What s coincidence just when 1tb fall sub 100 :)
https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/sandisk-ssd-plus-1-tb-internal-ssd-with-high-speed-readwrite-black-9648-at-amazon-3254507 Looks similar but is a differnt model and slightly faster R\W speed for an extra £3 or more if you don't have prime.
Been Sub -90, So don't rush to buy it.
This https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/sandisk-ultra-3d-ssd-1-tb-up-to-560mbs-read-up-to-530mbs-write-9911-at-mymemory-3254511 And Mx500 far better buys
Which is better this or the Crucial MX500 CT1000MX500?
Good deal but I'd go for Ultra one
This is not a great drive - I would want a better made and better drive for this price. It is housed in cheap plastic and the sata connector could break at any point.
Got the Crucial MX500 2tb for abit cheaper back in April from Amazon France with delivery. Keep your eye out on there.
Seems to me like the code is being wasted to achieve a price i wouldnt be impressed with on a normal deal.
Western Digital is parent company of Sandisk.
Western digital blue 3D and SanDisk ultra 3d is exactly same drive and firmware. Only difference is brand name.
Before you spend your money on an SSD for a PS4, check the tests of performance as I remember an SSD didn't make a huge difference for the money it costs (I found this one https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=InermmePbd4 as an example). A hybrid drive might be the better cost effective option for the time being.
This will work fine in your PS4.
Yes, can anyone confirm whether this would fit as an internal replacement for my PS4 Pro please. I've been looking to expand to 2tb and was hoping to go SSD for improved loading times.
Will this fit in a One X or a PS4??
Managed to grab two . (y)
I'm after evo, but no luck so far!
Nope EVO is probably top tier
Is this better than the Samsung 860 evo range?
but theres more than one company that makes hdd ?
Just like iPhones
Nice piece of kit.
The 2 Tb is currently £271.99 https://smile.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B078T9SZ3K/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 which works out pretty similar per Gb
Size too. I have the 2 Tb version of this which I use for video editing on the go.
USB c flash drives are quite fast.. the one for 128gb at £25ish can read around 300MBps and write at 90MBps Of course they too advertise as 500MBps
Deals over. Too late.
This 480 GB in this deal had been declining however to the lowest point to be £44.99 .. which seems they increased to £45.99 now. And I am counting this will drop further.
I am well aware of that as I posted. I said about 1TB not 960GB. And that deal is still live..
The ADATA 960Gb one was on a deal for under £80 recently
Actually, no. This is a DRAM-less SSD and it has been the going price for those for awhile, probably will even get lower A great price was the DRAM 500Gb WD Blue SSD that Amazon had for £41 last month. EDIT: @Lexeus mentioned that already :)
Better and better price every month for SSD, still good technology even better only NVMe drives.
Still on at this price, thanks OP
have some heat Nice cheap way to re-invigorate some old laptops I have floating about :D
Im going with the Intel 660p NVMe, may only be QLC 3d NAND but its cheaper than this: https://www.cclonline.com/product/269936/SSDPEKNW020T8X1/Solid-State-Drives-SSDs-/Intel-SSD-6-Series-660p-2TB-Solid-State-Drive-PCI-Express-3-0-x4-M-2-80mm-3D2-QLC-Internal-/SSD0909/?siteID=8BacdVP0GFs-g57awQIxC5H7a0wGPeer8A
Me too, I much prefer saving files to a GPU rather than the old skool methods such as drives. So last century.
Should be there by the end of the year.
Went NVMe for a recent build. I wouldn't go back to SSD now, and I speak as someone who was wowed when they first installed an SSD into their PC!
You will be waiting a long time
Here is the link :) WD 4 TB Elements Portable Hard Drive - Black
No thanks, in my experienece their customer service is terrible.
Yes it's hilarious. I'm in stitches (embarrassed)
I just find it funny. Thats all
I posted one deal 10 months ago for a 'USED' Amazon warehouse deal. If there had been anything better from another bricks & mortar retailer I would have posted that instead. I am currently standing on both my legs, thank you very much (y)
If you are looking for a bargain there aren't any this minute, but they change day by day. You can'y go wrong with an MX500, that has DDR3 and is backed by Crucial and their reliable warranty. The best deal recently was the Western Digital Blue 3D NAND 500Gb for £41, but who knows if anything will popup again like that any time soon. The newer deals seem to be starting on NVME M.2 cards.
So what do you think is the best ~£50-60 model, the crucial mx500?
They have no DRAM and therefore random read/write times are slower
I've been using the 240GB versions of these in desktops and laptops over the last two years, and although they're seen as budget option, I've never found a real world difference between these, Crucials or Samsungs.
I want 32TB on a stick of chewing gum now since I have read that it is theasable by Micron. Get rid of mechs. like we did with our old crt tvs.
Cheaper at amazon. 88 quid.
Someone posted intel 660p NVME drive for £99 if you have an M2 slot. Much faster.
Just received mine from Amazon and installed it in my old PC that had got very sluggish - the difference is absolutely amazing - boots up in 10 secs where it was taking several minutes before. Going to clear some rubbish off it next so hopefully will be even better.
I'm blaming pcp!
