A couple of weeks after we reported that Ebuyer slashed the price of the 128GB Kingston SSD to only £50, the same retailer has done the same to its bigger brother, the 256GB model – the SSDNow 200 256GB - which can now be had for £100 with three years warranty and delivery.
This is by far the cheapest per GB SSD on the market and one that sets the standard for the rest of the competition and at 39p per GB, we’re approaching the prices of low-capacity external hard disk prices.
The drive comes with a SATA 3 interface and is capable of sequential reads of up to 300MBps and writes of 230MBps.
It is available in a 2.5in form factor, which means you'll need an adaptor for desktop usage and at 9.5mm thick, it won't be compatible with most thin and light laptops (like Ultrabooks).
Otherwise, this superfast solid state drive will work wonders in RAID-0 or RAID-1 configurations, where a pair will cost just under £200. The drive uses a JMicron 668 controller as well as Toshiba 24nm 3KP/E Cycle MLC NAND flash.
