    Crucial 120GB M500 SSD - 50% Off @ Amazon

    Part of Amazon's Black Friday deals, I thought I'd draw peoples attention to this:

    Crucial CT120M500SSD1 2.5-inch 120GB M500 SATA 6Gb/s Internal Solid State Drive

    At the time of posting, this offer is gone in 1hr 15mins.

    I would say it'll be good to the upcoming PS4... but I'm not actually sure.

    Comes with a 9.5 adapter, so it should fit. But it has hardware encryption so it could refuse to work...



    If only the 960GB version wasn't so expensive...

    Great Find Prawns, wonder if they do the 240gb model or a 240gb Samsung Pro 840 series for half price ?

    It's not half price.

    It's 50% off the RRP, which they DON'T sell it at. It has 37% off by default.

    LOL Prawns has stuck hasn't it! That's a half decent price for a nightmare of a drive. No end of troubles with Crucial M500s our end. Can't beat a Kingston V300 120GB SSD for £66 inc VAT.

    Yes, Yes it has !!

    In that case will stick with either a Samsung 840 Pro or possibly an OWC Drive ? That or an Intel one ?

    I'm keeping my eyes peeled for the Samsungs on the Black Friday deals too. I have an 840 Pro and it is the best bit of kit I've ever had. If I can get another one or two, I'll be a happy man.

    Yeah the Samsung 840 Pro's even look nice and pretty. Like pulling up the bonnet and revealing a shiny, chromed up V12.

    I was gonna say, these SSD's are horrible.

    Very unreliable.

    There is a reason they are on sale!!

    Me too.

    I picked up three 256GB Samsung 830's in one of Amazon's flash sales last year. I wouldn't mind an 840 Pro for £100 or so!

    I was hoping someone would spread the love to the Evo model. We like.

    Considering it's £71.80 inc VAT direct from Crucial, it's not exactly the bargain it claims to be either.

    ive been looking at one of these Samsung 840 EVO 120GB 2.5 inch Basic SATA Solid State Drive: Amazon.co.uk: Computers & Accessories

    looks like a good price for a samsung drive, im assuming the basic drive is slighty neutered compared to the larger capacities
