    Me too! :D

    Maybe I'll hang on for the 830 - this is very tempting, though!

    Just purchased one myself :). Was looking at getting another 240, but this was a good deal I felt. Will be using it mainly for games so 120 is big enough since I've already got it's big brother the Hyperx 240gb as my boot/apps/games drive, and an external for all my bulk :p.

    Also, that was my first order since qualifying for free delivery. Thanks OCUK ;)

    Thats because they are trying to match and are making massive losses. Something joe public doesnt see. They will no doubt complain but I dont care :D

    Samsung have put the cost up of all of their drives so you will be waiting a while.

    Was sooo obvious they would do that, price up £20 cash back.... will most likely cost more than when it was on offer the other week!

    Most wont notice a difference.

    You are right the controller is better however the speeds that actually count of the results that make the V200 look better are 4K64Thrd rather than big file sizes. Reason.. windows is on these smaller sizes and as a result the sandforce generally is faster on this due to the micron controller being of the older type.

    Thats why i like the Agility 4. On paper is miles slower than the Agility 3 or Vertex 3 but in reality it trounces it.

    Thought I would get this at a good price. It is surplus to my requirements currently but may put it into a spare USB 3 caddy for the time being.

    What is the cheapest sata cable on the ock website?
    The only one I can find is the bitfenix one - http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=CB-005-BX

    I don't need braided just unnecessarily expensive, just a clean and simple SATA 6GB/s to get the most out of a SSD.
    Like the ones which come in a orange/red colored cable...that come with the kits you can get.
