Glad to see local prices are going down.
New tech developments drive older tech prices up, not down.
If you think about it though, the best you could hope for would be a ~$10 price drop, assuming prices were going to drop for any reason. Is it really worth it to you to wait?
Wow, that's silly money. And the Crucial M100 512GB is down to US$230 here in Taiwan.
MSY had the Samsung 840 Pro 256Gb for only $169... Till I called them and found that they were outta stock. Other places like PCCG have it for similar prices.
My Ancient GSkill 128Gb FM2 is dying by the looks of it.
Wanted to get an 840 Pro... but now REALLY salivating over the 850.
Only 1 small problem. Not out in Oz yet
Don't know if it's been posted before;
"Plextor M5 Pro 512GB SSD (PX 512M5P) $289 FREE DELIVERY @ Hot.com.au"
Crucial M550 1TB SATA SSD $395.58 USD / $441.03 AUD delivered
For what I paid for my 1st gen. Intel 80GB SSD I could get close to a TB now.
Just upgraded it (C to 240.
Looks like a 1TB for my games, or even a 2TB for everything might be next.
I just cache my games HDD with the older 60GB SSDs, as it gives them something to do! (Z68 chipset)
Not sure if my venerable X48 board supports that. Will have to do some research. If no native support might be a workaround.
There are caching software that allow you to do what Z68 m/b do.
yes, please do!
Don't want my old faithful Intel 80GB going rusty, or seizing up, or whatever it is old SSD's do.
Some light reading material.
Prices for the Upcomming Samsung 850 series are beginning to show up.
MWave has preorders for the 256Gb version for $215. $479 for the 512Gb version.
CPL down in melb with similar prices.
"Samsung EVO 840 500GB SSD $AUD210 delivered. Cheapest price this drive has ever been"
thats so cheap! - how long does post from Amazon take anyway?
Roughly 1.5 weeks, depending on where you are.
My deliveries in the past from Amazon have taken between one and two weeks usually.
Express has taken me less than a week, cheap postage 2 weeks or longer.
Quick off-topic question
If I split an order to multiple orders to avoid import fees, am I able to place those orders straight away or should I be waiting?
