This appears to be a good deal for anyone in the market for an SSD - with £15 cashback

northumbria61 has been a respected forum member for a very long time. Thank you for your vigilance, nevertheless.

I'm sure it is a good deal - but when I make my first foray into SSDs, I'm likely to go for a 32GB or 64GB, which is more than enough room for my operating system and the programs (Office, Chrome) I use frequently - and which will cost much less. Or am I missing somethhing?

By the way: if Northumbria61 is spamming the board, who knows who'll start next? Chronos? Fruit Bat? Onthelimit? Perhaps even the Forum Editor? LOL...

Chronos: I can't disagree - thanks. This isn't really hi-jacking the thread as such, so... If I get one, I'd get one for my XP machine. I've read mixed things about XP and SSDs, though - can be more trouble than it's worth. While W7 has SSD support built-in - in terms of optimising usage - I believe that, at best, you need to do a lot of manual 'housekeeping' with SSDs under XP, and at worst, they don't work very well at all. Do you - or anyone - have any insight into all that?

Well I have created a bit of interest for what has been a non eventful and boring Saturday, for me at least - my team don't play until tomorrow ! (Newcastle against our old rivals Sunderland)

I hope someone benefits from the excellent SSD deal and I think Samsung is a safe bet - and from a well respected supplier - Novatech.
