^ Non-mobile link. It's good to see SSDs getting cheaper.

Perfect timing, especially as we want to be shifting everyone to SSD here

1TB for £290 is not bad either!!

They work great in backup servers!

Lol, I think I'll wait till they come down a bit more! The amount of backup data we have would mean we need about 30 of them to start. Quick back of packet calculation would put our next generation of backup solution at £23k, compared to £7.2k for a spinning disk solution of the same size.

May have to buy 2 of these, throw them into my other 2 pc's, and use the x2 240gb ssds as storage.

Just out of curiousty performance wise is there much difference between the 840 Evo and the 850 Pro ?

About 15% in write speed

SSDs are all limited by the SATA interface at this point, so read/write speed is a fairly meaningless comparison because they're all equally bottlenecked. Saying that, performance difference in the architecture is irrelevant when they're all equally bottlenecked...
850 Pro has higher random IOPS - 100k/90k across the board where the 840 EVO doesn't really ramp up until higher capacities.
Also a good deal: 256GB MX100 for £75.

I want to put the 1tb SSDs in a NAS at some point. Might wait for the 2tb ones though.

Price has increased to £59.99 now.

Yeah this is why I had to think really hard before buying my rig. I did eventually go for a 840 500GB SSD but I'm really eyeing up the PCI SSD Cards at the moments which has write speeds of around 1200mbps which is more than double the performance. Though it's big £400 price tag and small capacity put me off, hopefully we will soon see PCI SSD's come down in price and I can use one as a boot drive.
