    I think a large part of the "bad" rep is down to the fact that newer drives, such as the Samsung Evo series, are a lot faster. I don't think there's anything wrong with the M500 and it's still a very fast drive.

    @azrael: There's no email; it was a code, like CR10JFD, that appeared on the "Thank you" page. The £10 voucher is only applicable until February 28th so, unless unless your need for RAM is current, you haven't missed out. That's a bit naff as I have no use for mine in that timeframe. In any case, I suspect, without having checked, that the prices on crucial.com are more than £10 higher than prices at various retail sites.

    Comparing the 120GB M500 on there and at retail they're roughly the same, so it's a good deal with the discount code.

    I wondered how long it'd be until HUKD got wind of this, shame as most surveys filled out from a certain point are now likely to be made-up rubbish so people can get their voucher.

    True.

    I wonder how they will know who are real Hexus members?

    The question lingers, pick up the crucial m500 or pay a bit extra for a samsung 840.

    IMO if you can afford it go Samsung, but only if 250GB or more.

    Well I presume the exploits of stupid HUKD has resulted in this being pulled on both the coupon code and of the news article that was on the front page(but not the survey link in the original post).
    Shame as that £10 off was going to result in a purchase right now, considering a cheap upgrade on an old sata 2 port, so probably isn't worth the upgrade to the samsung 840.

    Shame the codes weren't unique and somehow linked through hexus users.

    because the responses from genuine members will be full of "other" [give details] "this question is too narrow I do X and Y and Z and post on A and B and C and what I recommend for P and Q doesn't work for R so I can't give a meaningful answer, though option 9 was probably nearest to the mark for 90% of cases"

    Come to think of it that is why it's probably been pulled....

    Ditto, just went to purchase another SSD and use the code I was given and it got rejected, idiots for not providing unique codes. Oh well my custom will go to another vendor. Anyone from Hexus care to comment or contact Crucial as we've been shafted!

    Cheers for that, I've just seen the current SSD posts on the new build thread (including yours) about MLC vs TLC.
