I trust you will be tweaking your pricing to beat those competitors linked from Intel's site?

I only checked two and they were both cheaper. I'm sure you'll not let Gibbo's old place undercut you on something like this ;)

Is it worth getting this to use it with the sata 3gbps p55 chipset.

My mobo has the marvell 9128 6gbps controller chip, but i've read that is rubbish.

I have the Samsung F3 1tb and probably wont upgrade the mobo for a year +

Really tempted with this offer to get my first ssd.

Clicking on the ocuk link on the offer website, takes you to the eset security rubbish products site. :D

Yeah, many people use them on SATAII - you won't get the full speed until you upgrade your motherboard but it'll last easily until then (esp. with 5 year warranty!) and Windows will still feel very fast even on SATAII :)

Whats the problem with waiting until 11th April to fill in the form ?


As long as you purchase the drive before or on 8th April, you will be fine for the cashback. You have 30 days from date of purchase to make the claim.

They have two time windows in which to do things. One time window during which you make the purchase and another one in which to make the claim. They didn't say it would overlap.

Also, look further down to the Claiming section, specifically to this point...

Intel SSD Cashback T&Cs said:
2. The claim form must be received within thirty – sixty (30 – 60) days of the date of purchase. The first day of purchase counts as day one (1).

So even if you purchased one today, you still won't be allow to submit the claim until 30days from today anyway, and not before. The claim window opens on the 11th April for those that purchased on the 12th March.

Yes they've made it slightly trickier than most cashback schemes but they've done it like this in the hopes that it might catch some people out and they they might forget to do it within 30 to 60 days from purchase.

Hopefully you won't since I've covered it for you :)

this is the scheme that adopted by other companies too, such as Lenovo. I remembered doing the same when I bought my thinkpad edge. You can only claim it after 30 days from purchase, but not more than 60 days. I claimed mine on the 59th days. :p
similarly, most mobile phone cashback works in the same way.

I think it is to avoid people from buying their product, claim the cashback and then refund at full price within DSR period or similar; hence make profit from the cash back.
