HP 120GB SSD M700 for $45

-2 Deal Score
1,488 Views
This is my first post, but I did not see this one in any searches I did. Monoprice through their ebay site has the HP 120GB SSD M700 for $45 each. Not sure how many they have left as it just states limited quantity.

There is a limit of 3 per customer and they will not let you add more than that to your cart.

The Samsung 250+ GB drives are on sale for $75-79 at both Microcenter and Fry's.

I believe that would be the sweet spot, as it's both cheaper-per-GB, but also a much better fit.
This 120GB will run out of space if you're doing much more than email + web surfing.

I consider this personal preference and it depends on what you are doing with the drive. For Office computers where not much is stored locally the 120GB size has been great for me, or if it is paired with a large spinning disk for data it can also be sufficient.

That being said Samsung drives I am sure are superior in quality and performance.

For me I would rather have two 120 GB drives than one 250 at this point because I am upgrading older hardware with smaller disks.

The price per GB is pretty close (HP=.375, Samsung=.333), but I agree that the Samsung is the better deal for the quality and size unless you want more smaller drives like I do.

I have never seen them that cheap ($30). In fact the best price I ever got on a 120GB drive (not an HP) was $35 and that was probably 2-3 years ago when they went down in price for a little while.

I could not find much info on them, but for me upgrading older computers with SATA II and Core2Duo CPUs, it is not that much of an issue as pretty much any SSD is going to make a huge difference in speed.

I would be willing to bet they are not going to perform as well as a Samsung.

Looked. Didn't find anything. Closest was Black Friday at $40 each, then the paypal moible $15 off $75 coupon. That deal, if you bought 2, would have been $32.50 each.

Oh, sorry, I see now. I would not mind seeing that link either. However, i suspect it was a past deal and no longer available. I would definitely buy more at that price though.

Would this be good to put the OS on?
Personally, I'd pass over this for a better known model from a brand with more of track record for SSDs, but in terms of the size, if that's what you mean, It's fine to put any OS on, and even quite a bit of general-use software. If you're a gamer, though, or plan to use it on a laptop and want to carry around even just a fair number of high-def type movies/videos or a really large music collection (let alone both), you'd definitely want a bigger drive.
