Yup and with it been a samsung evo it flies.
I have one of these (paid much more for it), it's a fantastic bit of kit.
I paid ~£330 for mine 18 months ago I think. It's brilliant. The quid core i7 MacBook with 16gb is probably overkill for web browsing
(But quick for handbrake)
Even cheaper: Crucial CT512MX100SSD1 512GB MX100 for £145
We've been getting the MX100's here for a few weeks since their release, as they're cheaper than the 840 EVOs at the moment (and all the Crucial m4s we've had have been flawless). Really, really happy with them so far - cracking performance, and dem prices
@sonofsanta, will be interesting to see how they go in the long run, I haven't heard great things about Crucial SSD's. Definitely not had an issue?
Would have bought the Samsung EVO SSD for my new rig but need to sell my Alienware first!
We've been buying the 840 EVO's for the last year or two and these MX100s feel similarly fast. I'll buy whichever of them is cheapest at the time and be happy either way, I reckon. Until the 850 EVO comes out with 40nm TLC V-NAND, anyway
They're being sold for cheap to make room for Samsung's vertical-nand range. Another good buy is this: Toshiba SSD Q Series 512GB Solid State Hard Drive for £135.98 delivered @ OCUK - Hot UK Deals
I've had my 128GB Crucial M4 for approaching three years. It's been an outstanding little performer paired with a regular HDD, and I'm sorely tempted to buy one of the 500+GB drives to replace it. I just want the prices to come down a little further...
