    Thanks OP. I've been waiting for a good deal on a small SSD for a while.

    Waiting for a super deal on the MX

    Surely $7 extra for the 240 GB is better deal for most

  •  

    Great price :)

  •  

    I Really need to get eBay plus for all these deals

    Just checked and found my very first SSD was a 120Gb - March 2012 - $177 delivered.

    •  

      64GB Crucial M4 (the best SSD at the time) for $105 in Julyish 2012. Didn't know what all the rave was about until I got one.

      Haven't ever done back, every build I do has one now no matter the budget. They're cheap enough that a budget PC can have just an SSD and get away with it.

      I was a very early SSD adopter and paid $550 for my first SSD 120GB !!

    Damn, my phone storage is bigger than this. How to use

      Decent for external use or to run your operating system off alongside another larger drive for storage.

    I see $35.12 ($43.90 - $8.78) for 120GB?

      still better than WD green

      •  

        don't know much about that drive or how much it cost
        but I only just look at this one and it is not that great

        So you are definitely getting what you pay for.

        Since we are keeping the SSD for a while
        I think it is better to spend a bit more money for the better MX or Samsung Evo ssds

        • +4 votes

          For a boot drive, yeah. If you have the money.

          But if you have a desktop (or large laptop that fits 2 SSDs) and already have a speedy 128GB or 240GB boot drive and just need a little extra space to put the games you're playing at the moment or your work software or whatever, so it loads faster, this is a good drive for that.

          Price 'seems' cheap at first so people would try to come up with some ways to use this:

          • For a really old PC or laptop currently using HDD.
          • A dirt cheap portable SSD (need a $6-9 enclosure).
          • Cheaper than a USB stick at this size (req. an enclosure or cable).
          • An excuse to try out linux or hackintosh.

          Honestly, smaller size DRAMless SSD, not really useful for most people. Price/GB ratio is poor so it doesn't really make sense for gamers (you extrapolate this price to 1TB = $226 - that just looks bad).

    I have a Samsung 850 Evo 250gb, need to upgrade it to 500gb. Just wondering with this sale on, wondering if I should get this brand in 500gb or samsung 860 evo. I don't mind spending a bit more from this brand, but my budget is around $110 if I get Samsung

  •  

    Grabbed a 240gb, thanks!

  • +1 vote

    Grabbed a 240GB in the previous deal… but price was only AU $42.65 (currently AU $52.95).

    Subtotal = AU $42.65
    Item discount = -AU $5.12
    Postage Free
    Voucher discount = -AU $5.00

    Total paid = AU $32.53

    The Crucial BX SSD series is low tier but honestly any SSD is a major upgrade if you don't already own one.
    My advice is to use this to boot up your operating system as 120gb is peanuts nowadays.

    In 2019, an 120gb SSD under $30 is a pretty good price and Crucial is also a decent brand.

  •  

    Can you put these in a case to use as an external SSD that plugs into a USB port?

  •  

    How you get free delivery? im getting $15 for it

  •  

    Is this good enough to run windows on parallels? How does it compare to say using windows installation off sdhc class 10?

      Crucial BX500 120GB 2.5-inch internal SSD SATA 6.0Gb/s - 540 MB/s Read, 500 MB/s Write

      SanDisk Extreme Pro 128GB UHS-II SDXC - Speeds up to 300MB/S Read and 260MB/S Write*
      Samsung EVO Plus 512GB MicroSD Card SDXC U3 - read & write speeds up to 100 MB/s & 90 MB/s respectively
      SanDisk Extreme Pro 256GB CompactFlash Memory Card - Up to 160MB/s read; Up to 150MB/s write speeds

      SD cards don't compare in terms of read/write speeds, afaik if you're using SD cards constantly reading and writing you will burn out an SD card fairly quickly where an SSD will last a lot longer.

      Average lifespan of sd card with light use - 5 years for sd card, (heavy use card could be dead in days/weeks if constantly used.)

      Claimed lifespan of this particular ssd - 1.5 million hours
      Endurance 120GB drive: 40TB Total Bytes Written (TBW), equal to 21GB per day for 5 years.

      edit - Yes good to use as a windows drive.

    Anyone else still waiting for delivery? Are they normally this slow
    Havent replied to my ebay messages eithee

    •  

      I'm still waiting too. eBay says "tracking info received", but it's still not listed as "in transit". The estimated delivery is today…

  •  

    Still didn't get it.

  •  

    I got it but it doesn't include any screws? Where should I buy them?
