Crucial's RealSSD C300 may have been superseded by its m4 brethren earlier this year, but if you happen to be in the market for a SSD, the company may have what it calls a super-sweet deal, to pique your interest.



The RealSSD C300, with its SATA 6Gbps connectivity, delivers maximum sequential read speeds of up to 355MB/s, together with maximum sequential write speeds of between 75MB/s and 215MB/s, depending on the capacity you go for.

Crucial's limited-time offer for the UK - with a headlining price of just 72 pence per GB (inclusive of VAT) - is available on a host of refurbished RealSSD C300 SKUs, and the company invites you to get the low-down on what it describes as a bargain not to be missed.

30 day warranty. Little bit scary. You'd think they'd have more confidence in the stock…
If it wasn't for the 30 day warranty, I'd have bought one already.

Still tempted by the 256GB one though.. would be a nice space boost over my 80GB X25-M ;)
Certainly cheaper than they used to be but the price per GB isn't everything, it's common sense to look for performance not just the capacity. The read/write is not as good value by now. and limiting to 1 per person puts an end to any RAID setups :rolleyes: …
120GB SSD NEW - £130 inc. del
Crucial Refurbished SSD - £93 incl. del

30 days warranty means they want shot of these units knowing full well they have issues, but are trying to make some money of them.

Personally think this is Crucial screwing people over in an attempt to shift some dodgy units.
