    £30 60GB SSD!

    Just got an email in from eBuyer with a 60GB SATA3 SSD for £30. Whilst not exactly a big drive, it could work well if anyone wants to get a cheap SSD boot drive for their PC.
    They're selling fast so get your skates on if you want one: Kingston 60GB V+200 SSD - 2.5" SATA-III - Read.. | Ebuyer.com

    I was buying 128 gig ones for £32 a few weeks ago. They don't seem to have any more stock though.

    Hmmm. Perhaps we need a 'bargains' forum to let everyone know about limited offers/clearances etc.

    That would only really help if it sent updates to people.

    As a forum, it could become out of date very quickly. [/opinion]

    At home I use the Momentus XT (750Gb [MkII]), simply because SSD is very expensive for higher capacity (which still isn't very high in comparison). Win 7 boots up from cold to desktop in about 20 seconds

    Back in stock it seems. Bought one, hope it does come because that's a bargain. Had a bad experience with the V100, but the V200+ 60GB is a quick drive - I have a batch here that have gone out to staff PCs. Plenty big enough for my boot drive, will have to do some serious file moving to use it!

    Thanks for ordering with Ebuyer.com!
    Can't really complain at that price, been holding off getting a small SSD just for OS for a awhile, but with Win8 approaching and all time for a pc rebuild I think

    Even though it's not exactly super sized, £30 for a drive, yay
