    Crucial 64GB M4 SSD

    Does anyone know where the cheapest places are to source approx 50 Crucial 64GB M4 SSD at the moment? Our usual suppliers are hovering around the £60 per unit mark is this about the cheapest we'll get? (Minus a few pence for ordering 50 )

    can I ask why?

    For instance:

    Crucial v4 128GB SATA 3Gb/2.5" SSD | Ebuyer.com

    6 quid a unit more for 128gb

    Off the shelf for the 60gb if you are feeling masochistic - Crucial 64GB M4 SSD - 2.5" SATA-III - Read.. | Ebuyer.com - 45 quid.

    The Samsung 840 120GB would be the better option than the V4 - 62.49 ex VAT on eBuyer, solid reliability (TLC doesn't matter for client machines), great performance.

    We've used the m4s in the past to great effect but have found that their prices have gone up a lot over the last year, presumably as a result of the (not so hot) m500 range being released. We prefer the Samsungs now for their holy trinity of value/performance/reliability.

    remember that the v4 is significantly slower than the m4 - Crucial.com/UK v4 Solid State Drive - How Fast Is the Crucial v4 SSD

    Absolutely - my point still stands though, you can get the m4's off the shelf for a lot less than the price you've gotten from someone!
