Need a cheap almost 1TB SSD?

Deal Alert - Kingston's 960GB A400 SSD is now £89.97!

SSDs have become a lot more affordable over the past year, so much so that 240GB drive can be had for as little as £30, giving PC builders little excuse not to use an SSD as their boot drive. 

On the higher-end, the same trend holds true, but today eBuyer has an offer that will allow PC builders to have almost 1TB of solid state storage for under £100.  

Kingston's A400 960GB SSD is now available for £89.97, allowing PC builders to access a large bank of fast storage at an affordable price. Yes, at up to 500MB/s Read and 450MB/s write these drives are not the fastest SSDs around, but for just under £90 they will do a great job as a new gaming drive or as an alternative to your ageing HDD.

As a 7mm thick 2.5-inch drive, Kingston's A400 SSD is suitable for most modern notebooks, assuming that they are compatible with 2.5-inch drives, making it a great upgrade option for users of HDD-based notebooks.

Same price at Amazon.co.uk.


I used a 240GB version of this drive to upgrade a relative's old laptop (with a 250GB HDD). Huge improvement, naturally.Quote

The cheapest you can find a 2.5" 1TB HDD is still about £40 nowadays, while it seems like price/GB on SSDs is halving every year atm, I guess we're going to have to move past 1TB 2.5" platters soon to keep the price/GB of HDDs at the lowest end (Single platter) moving forward to avoid becoming obsolete in mobile.Quote

A 2TB HDD is just over £50. A 4TB costs as much as this 1TB NVMe SSD.

Hard drives are far from obsolete if you need a lot of data. However if you don't, an SSD is enough. Many people can make do with a 240GB SSD (£30) or 480GB SSD (just over £40 for the unknown brands).Quote

Depends on your format though, at 2.5" you won't find much usable for a portable system below £70 for 2TB and for 3TB that jumps to £110, most 2.5" HDD's larger than that won't actually fit in most laptops now due to thickness of using more than 2 platters last time I checked(And this was for a beefy 2013 ThinkPad with an mSATA SSD and two 2.5" drives with an ODD bay conversion).Quote

True. Was thinking of desktops. For laptops, I guess the best combination today is an SSD plus an external HDD, which is 4TB for £85. Don't know what kind of 2.5" drive is in those, and whether it's possible to remove it and stick it in the laptop (the 4TB externals are typically pretty thick).

Edit: Okay, these are 15mm 2.5" drives. They won't fit inside a laptop.Quote
