More SSD price cuts from Samsung and ADATA

Once the cool weather starts to roll in, we’re sure that PC-related sales will increase and everything will be much better for manufacturers across the globe. In the meantime, pucker up – here come more price cuts on juicy Solid State Drives.

Samsung’s 840 series has proven to be one of the heroes of 2013 so far. While the transfer speeds are a little topsy turvy (reading at up to 540MB/sec while only writing data at 250MB/sec), adding one to an old laptop or new system build would definitely make your world a better place.

So how much should this drive be?   Well, according to Amazon, it’s a £157.64 product.

Unusual to see Amazon so far out on price

Over on Aria, they have just slashed their existing £128 price to just over £119. That’s £119 for a top brand 250GB SSD. Impressive.

Looks like the one on Amazon - but after a serious diet.

The chaps at eBuyer have applied a different kind of pressure – this time on the 120GB ADATA S510. At launch, it was considered very good value at £119, but now the price has dropped by almost 50% to just over £64.

With 550MB/Sec read and 510MB/Sec write, this kind of SSD occupies a performance slot above the Samsung 840 - but you would only notice it in certain situations.
