      I assume you meant post code there. You could have saved yourself the trouble:

      ¨Terms and Conditions: Competition closes 30/09/2012. You must be 18 or over and resident in the UK to be eligible.¨

      Does that mean we're stuck with those wanky samsung adverts on here until October?

    Deliberate Trick Question?

    The disk reviewed was, presumably, 256GB. But the options are Mb, Gb and Tb. Since the closest option is out by a factor of 8 (bits vs bytes), where's the "other" option? (I'm not going to argue the size of the byte also being architecture dependant this time, that would probably be a bit too facetious. ;) )

      Nice one! It really hacks me off the way people seem incapable of getting that right. Especially on a tech website.

    Tb

    If the drive is 256GB, which answer is closer, 256Gb or 256Tb?

      Re: Tb

      Gb is still closer by far (1/8 as opposed to 1 000/8 [or 1 024/8 depending on the choice of base unit]).

      I'm not from the UK, but I'd recommend y'all wait till they review the one with the 520PB/s sequential read speed.

    Are the three people in the background pic actors in some prime time "comedy" coming our way sooner rather than later.

    'Are the three people in the background pic actors in some prime time "comedy" coming our way sooner rather than later.'

    I was wondering who they were, too. Maybe they're El Reg editors?

    I see what Samsung did there....

    SSD830 240GB?

    Could they be more deliberately confusing?

    WTF?

    By the time this is won, SATA 4 will be out

    Can't believe that the closing date for this compy is 30th September - over 3 months away! By then, a new Samsung model will be out, this 830 model will be half the price it is now and finally someone will draft a spec for SATA 4 (we can hope), making all current SSDs obsolete :-)

    Still, I entered it anyway - can't have enough SSDs in your drive bays if you ask me. Next time, set a closing date in terms of weeks and not months, especially for rapidly changing tech.

    You are an international site...

    ... so post the damn thing outside UK!
