Ends at 11.59am (21/8/2012) but the countdown timer shows that it will end at 10.00am. Correct me if I am wrong and enjoy your new SSD =)
Ps: Thanks to moocher for allowing me to post!
Good deal for local Aussie stock.
Would you guys recommend this over the Crucial M4?
Not really comparable, because M4 does not come in 480GB, closest is 512GB. But if same size same price, I'd get M4.
The Sandisk drive is newer, uses the faster sanforce controller and is a great product but it hasn't been around long enough to know if it will stand the test of time! the M4 has and is rock solid..
Mind you i got myself a 240gb Sandisk for my home PC and i got an M4 for my mums laptop as i can get warranty on the sandisk and reinstall windows on my pc if the sandisk dies but i would rather avoid the hassle on my mums laptop.
Either drive would be great and work fine.
Should I get the 120gb version they're selling for $99 or the Samsung 830 128gb? Only $10 more.. my first ssd for my new laptop:-)
Hell, if it was me, I'd just get the 120GB. Assuming you're paying $10 more for just an 8GB increase. I don't feel another 8GB is worth the $10.
But that's just me.
I don't really care about the extra 8gb. I would rather pick a more reliable and faster ssd.
In this case, which 1 is better?
I'll take Samsung over Sandisk, not because of brand but due to the chipsets used. Samsung drives don't use Sandforce and it has been solid, fast and has stand the test of time so far. I think it is on par with Intel drives but better value.
Thx for your help guys!
one of only 3 players in this market (crucial m4 or intel 520)
Couldn't find a mention of physical dimensions on website - is there any way to check if this will fit an ultrabook (HP Envy 1010TU)?
Thanks xywolap, I appreciate you're trying to be helpful here but I'd already tried Google and didn't find the dimensions - also tried the SanDisk website without any luck - hence the post.
And obviously it's not just the dimensions of the SSD that needs to be considered…
If anyone has a little more constructive insight into how to determine if this will fit into an ultrabook, I'd welcome your feedback.
Depending on what your ultrabook can accept. If your ultrabook can accept a normal HDD, then the SSD will fit. Some ultrabook may require a thinner SSD which measures 7mm thick, and some cant even fit them in and have to use MSATA SSD. I am not that familiar with HP, you have to know what your laptop needs.
Open up your ultrabook and look at the current SSD.
Hey thanks for the info - I'll open it up and take a look.
