Buy a discounted SSD and get Rainbow Six Siege free

Samsung SSD Rainbow Six Siege RPS

If you’re in the market for a new SSD or you just happen to be a sucker for collecting a seemingly endless supply of extra storage when it gets discounted like some people (look, I might need all of it someday), then you may want to head over to Currys PC World of all places today and grab a 250GB Samsung 850 Evo SSD at the discounted price of £89.99, with a free copy of Rainbow Six Siege thrown in for good measure.

That will be a Uplay digital code for Rainbow Six Siege, by the way, and only while stock lasts and all that jazz. IF you already own the game or don’t fancy some Clancy, you can head to Amazon and pick up just the SSD for a little cheaper (£82.99), though that offer is exclusively for Prime members at the moment.

    “Fancy some clancy?”, the streetwalker called out as I walked past, head down, cheeks reddening.

    Tempting, but am waiting for a 500Gb so I can do a straight swap with my current HDD.

    I’ve got prime and it’s coming up as 95 quid for me.

    Who exactly buys an SSD for a bit of “extra storage”?

    Sure, grab an SSD to install your OS on, but seriously, I can think of cheaper ways to store my torrents and porn.

    The 250GB Evo is still by far the most expensive model per GB. If you can stretch to a 1TB or 2TB then you would save well over 20% on the per-unit price. Oddly, 4TB gets more expensive again.

    That does sound like a pretty good deal. I’ve been looking for a new drive where I can record gameplay onto as I don’t want to do that onto my boot drive. I know that a traditional HDD would be sufficient but I’ve read SSDs are better at handling large disk writes smoothly.

    • tehfish says:

      Thats odd, i would consider that to be an area well suited to a HDD. It’s sequential writes (so minimal seeking, which is a HDD’s Achilles heel) with lots of capacity needed, again an area a HDD excels at.

      Unless you’re planning to write video at over 100mb/sec sustained, are you sure a HDD would not be more sensible here?

    I own an 850 Evo 1TB and it’s been nothing but entirely reliable and wicked fast. Just an endorsement for anyone equivocating.

    Ok. ok.. i’m buying it already..lol

    £90 for a 250GB doesn’t seem discounted when I consider I bought the 500GB for £124 last year
