Crucial MX500 M.2 £82.78 https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B077SQ8J1V/
All SSD Discounts, Offers and Sale - August 2018
Crap...needed an extra one of these too...shame I missed out.
All 5 sold in 12 minutes.
That really isc cheap if it runs properly with a SSD!
I can only assume some other person is using the account :D
They must have been non tech threads then.....
Lol, thought that may be the case but I read through all the way just to be sure!
Think you've taken my post a bit too literally there ;) Just looking forward to some cheap ssds and ram next year.
Anyone used one of these in a PS4? Any noticeable differnce?
Yes, my right boot. Start the car, love. We're leaving.
The Crucial MX500 CT500MX500SSD1(Z) 500 GB Internal SSD (3D NAND, SATA, 2.5 Inch) is the exact same price on Amazon right now too.
That's not really the hardwares fault. It's all the bloatware & malware on it thats slowing it down. A fresh install of XP will see a boot in about a minute.
This is cheap. I opted for the black because of the mega speeds but would have bought this if I hadn't set my mind on it.
IS this one better than Kingston 480 GB. I rememebr Amazon was selling Kingston 480 Gb at lower price than this
Only brand that's never let me down once is crucial.
Had many sandisk & Samsung drives do the same, feel like no brand can be trusted anymore :(
So true. Soon as you've built a system with only m2 drives, you never want to go back. Just so much cleaner. No annoying sata cables.
It's because this is the actual normal price.
Excellent price, I doubt the price of this will fall by more than £10 for the remainder of 2018.
Cheers, a 10% drop is still pretty big.
I exaggerated, I thought I read up to 25% lower by end of this year but these articles suggesting up to 10% by the end of this year and still continue to fall into next year.
Are you sure, can you link a couple articles?
Completely agree, the only benefit to nvme drives are when you copy large files. There's a few videos on YouTube of comparisons and these drives are pretty much similar to an SSD when using them for gaming. Spend the money of buying a larger capacity SSD if that's what you want this drive for.
£76.75 on Amazon... Previous deal from CCL was worth it but this is not really tempting...
A mistake is not checking the information properly. An idiot then puts it on Internet forum pages for others to see how stupid they are (unicorn) :)
ssd.userbenchmark.com/Compare/SanDisk-SSD-Plus-240GB-vs-Crucial-MX500-250GB/m25612vs3951 Also you don't use the going rate for the size of the SSD, you use the going rate for the brand as some are better and faster than others (y)
They really don't. I have a Crucial BX300 and MX500 I also have a 2 sandisk SSDs as well as a number of others. The Crucials have aluminium casing and their parts and connectors are well made and secure - so much that I use them as portal drives. The Sandisks are plastic and the connectors don't fit well, so much that I wouldn't risk removing them from their current laptops.
CCL had it for 65 earlier with the code so get in your time machines
That's a good point, it could be worth buying from somewhere like Amazon for an extra, what, £6? Just for the peace of mind in case something goes wrong.
SOLD OUT NOW
Shows as 24.99 brand new now, so works out at £21.24 with the discount still ordered
Ordered, thank you....
Anyone struggling to apply the code because they did the USA one last week.. make sure you applied your country change back properly. Go to the link below and make sure you press submit TWICE in order to apply the change back properly. Working for me now. cgi1.ebay.co.uk/ws1…how
If only RAM would come down more and an external HDD for that matter, don't trust usbs too much. Great price and heat btw.
True, but mine was 1-2MB/s! Took 16 mins to transfer a single 2GB file and sometimes went down to KB/s during the transfer. Not keeping that even to just store stuff. Get faster write from USB 2.0 :D
+1 I thought mine was faulty at first and actually emailed them about returning it. Suppose it's still OK value if you're not going to copying stuff to it that frequently.
Me too. Returned mine. Wouldn’t bother.
Just had an email saying they’ve cancelled my order due to a pricing issue (mad) (poo)
It's £105 now 😃 someone has sold a few units and increased the price? He must have ran out of them lol
why is it shown as £65 when it is £89 on ebay
up to 105.31 now
Thanks OP, was umming and ahhing, but just bought the last one.
Are these reliable? I have a hard time trusting ssd's since my patriot 240gb does after just 3 months.
I'm not sure! Amazon and Ebuyer battling out and has caused SSD prices to fall a lot lately! Let's hope by christmas ;)
Great price! I'm waiting for 1tb ssd's to become £100, I might be waiting a while xD
+ 20gb ;)
Get the crucial MX500 for £7 more.
only 76p more at Amazon. bought Weds and fitted yesterday. Old Tosh has a new lease of life.
Yep jeez didn't last long I'll expire now thanks for the heads up!
now says £105 when you follow link and google search
I have found this also in the past also, at least you can use it after the update
Thanks Ergun (y)
Adata sx8200 is the 2nd best consumer NVME after the samsungs. SanDisk dont even make an NVME. Plus Sandisk controllers are known to poop their pants quite often.
What are you on about? - there is nothing wrong with the Adata drives. They are a well known branded SSD card manufacturer. Their drives are equal to this sandisk and a lot cheaper. I have a 480gb Sandisk SSD Plus and frankly it is my worst drive. Performance wise there is nothing to choose between any of these basic SSDs. Manufacturing wise the sandisk is the worst. It has very cheap fragile components.
Adata have been going for years. Make very good blank media
All ebuyer oddballs have been mutant-listed now. Good day and good riddance.
Not a great drive, as I understand it. Personally, I'd spend the extra tenner and get this: https://www.ebuyer.com/822479-crucial-mx500-1tb-ssd-ebuyer-ct1000mx500ssd1 Comparison: http://ssd.userbenchmark.com/Compare/SanDisk-SSD-Plus-960GB-vs-Crucial-MX500-1TB/m206516vsm406099
" They just keep getting cheaper, don't they? " They sure do - 12p over 33 months https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/sandisk-ssd-plus-sata-3-240gb-3999-amazon-2333879
Cant wait for black Friday at this rate... :D
Exactly. I found a Lenovo ThinkPad X61s in my drawer that was sluggish but with an SSD it's actually fine. It's lightweight, the chassis is tough and it has the decent keyboard before they ruined them on the later model ThinkPads. Still cheaper than a netbook! I prefer to recycle and reuse wherever I can as well.
All we need now is for RAM prices to drop and we can all start building again.
Yep this is a real cheap way to make old dogs become quite speedy machines again. I've just bunged one into a 9 year old Dell desktop and it makes the PC very usable. Anyone refusing to move to SSD has no sympathy from me :D For fun I stuck one in a 10 year old desktop and loaded XP which installed so fast and never felt so good (yes pedants, I know XP doesn't support trim and garbage and whatever else an SSD needs)
They wouldn’t budge so I’ve ordered this, they can have the other one back.
Me too, but that's been a while. Next milestone, £0.1 per GB! (a TB ssd for £100, yes please!)
I remember getting excited when SSDs finally dropped under £1 a gb!
They did it as a one time thing for me last week on the Kingston drive which was £7 cheaper the next day. At first the rep said they don't do that so I said I guess I'll have to buy again and return at the higher price and basically said bye. She immediately called back and said she'll see what she can do. Ultimately took a few minutes on hold while she spoke to a higher up to get the result. But she did repeatedly state it was a one time exception. Was ready to order at the cheaper price and return the more expensive one but didn't have to in the end.
It only took nearly 2 years to dip under what I paid for it!
Fitted. Cloned my existing drive. It is superbly fast. Programs thst would hang before just open no problem
The benchmarks on this compared to drives of similar branding and size are way ahead. Ive got one to swap into my laptop later this week.
This is faster as it uses DRAM to speed up performance rather than memory on the drive itself (hence the smaller size for cheaper drives) to cache information. Also it will give you more total writes before failure and subsequently has a longer warranty - 5 years rather than 3. Whether this is worth a £14 premium is up to you. I have a combination of Crucial and cheaper ones, determined by the price difference between the two. At this price difference I would go for the Adata, for a larger size SSD where there is less than a £5 difference I would choose the Crucial.
As much as I like Crucial, this is a hard sell for me when another ~£13 gets you 480GB
As long as it's from a trusted brand, most are pretty much the same, there will be differing read/write speeds but I'd say crucial SSD's tend to be the most robust as well as reliable
LOL, my 2012 Crucial M4 whips it!
If only it would fit my Macbook Pro mid 2014
Good price but a relatively slow drive.my 4 year old OCZ arc100 whips it!
I’m hoping the same...
Pity they never have 2TB deals, only small sizes! A 2 TB at £140 x 2 = £280 would be fantastic!
Should of he?
Awesome deal! Cheapest price I've seen on a 1TB SSD
