Samsung 840 Evo 1Tb SSD - £309.48 - cheapest and best solid state drive ever!

Posted by mpp52 | Posted on 26/05/2015 at 23:39:31

Samsung are currently running a promotion where they will give you £50 cashback if you buy the 1Tb version of the 840 Evo SSD before the end of 3rd May from a participating retailer. Amazon are currently selling this drive for £349.48, which would be very cheap anyway, but with the £50 you get back from Samsung it works out less than £310! This is unbelievable value as it works out just over 30p per gig and this is a high performance drive. Note, this is the Evo model, which is superior to the original Samsung SSDs.

Once you've bought the drive, you can go to the following address to claim your cashback, or to find out more information before you buy it:

I got cashback on an SSD from Samsung when they ran a similar promotion last year and they were very reliable at paying out.

Obviously I've cut and pasted those specs, don't actually know what half of them mean but the read / write speeds are very good.
