£244 is too expensive for the 256gb drive when you consider you can get a samsung 830 256 for around the £160 mark.
What Pookie said! There is too little speed advantage for the price disparity.
You can get a vertex 3 for near 1/2 the amount (256) and its jyst as fast , and the 256 samsung is 135 on aria today dpecial.
If you think that's expensive I had to buy some prosthetic limbs the other day and they cost me an arm and a leg
Ba dum tst!
I cant find the samsung on Aria
your right - its the crucial M4 for £135
Ah, makes sense now. Still a great deal, considering I bought the same drive for Â£250 in March 2012....... Really tempted to buy a second one just to have games installed and the OS on the other M4...........must resist
Novatech have the 256GB Samsung 830 for £145… → http://www.novatech.co.uk/products/...state/128gbandabove/Samsung/MZ-7PC256NEU.html
That's the 2nd one ordered to expand the games drive
Yeah, what is up with the price expansion as well? The ADATA 120GB version of the 128 last I saw runs around $120 on Newegg and you can get a Mushkin 120GB sandforce based drive (granted, with synchronous NAND) for under $100 for a 120GB drive. If you want people to buy them, price them the same as the drives with higher overprovisioning, or at most a very slight premium, like $5-15.
Samsung 830 notebook kit (so will need a carrier) £137.99 at Scan in the today only
