    £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.

    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

    Ah, makes sense now. Still a great deal, considering I bought the same drive for £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

    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.
