    I got it from the ebay app on my phone so no link. Just type in keywords and you should find it. Whats the drive like man?

    Yeh sorry I just checked it is 250gb. Yeh I took a risk with it but ive been in contact with the seller and he just marked it posted so hopefully it comes soon lol

    That must've been a pricing error, if only I could've bought 4 of them and "melded" them into the 1TB :/

    Drive is really good. I don't think it's the fastest SSD but definitely feature packed and solid. The data migration software is awesome and I'm pretty sure with Rapid it can utilise up to 1gb of ram for super fast speeds. :thumbup:

    I jumped onboard that train too. It straddles the line between obvious scam and realistic super-bargain. It'll be interesting to see what arrives. If it's not as advertised then ye olde Paypale shall be ripping my funds back for me. :thumbup:

    :) So.. auction removed by ebay (after it ended), dispute case opened by me stating it was an obvious scam, found in my favour, full refund received. Done and dusted, heh heh.

    You?

    Do Samsung have global warranty, or would you have to do warranty via the States for an Amazon-bought drive?

    Well that certainly puts the State in solid State drives. :thumbdn:

    At least they're small and light to post, if it ever comes to that.

    I ended up getting a Verbatim 256gb SSD for $127. I havent really been able to find a review or much about their drives. Anyone know much about them? I could only find customer reviews for the 128gb on newegg which were mostly positive
