nah, usually the shill's dont say much else
Just posted this on ozbargains for the 240gb.
$289.95 for a 256GB Crucial M4 is so totally irresistible.
B&H have it for the same price (256GB) - http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/search?Ntt=Crucial+256GB+SSD&N=0&InitialSearch=yes
Shipping might be different
is there any difference between Aus stock and buying from Amazon? especially in terms of RMA guys?
My post on my only RMA experience with Amazon from earlier in the thread .
Amazon won't ship them to Australia:
Crucial 128 GB m4 2.5-Inch Solid State Drive SATA 6Gb/s CT128M4SSD2 cannot be shipped to the selected address.
Are you guys using a mail forwarding service?
You need to use the amazon global shipping site:
I did that, seems like you can't ship the 128s internationally, but you can the 256s?
I got a 128 delivered last week.
Confirmed with 2 reps: they're only shipping the 256s.
This can change at any time as well.
I'm just going to settle with an Intel 520.
Now down to USD$549 for the 512 version!!!
no delivery to AUS
bummer. just went back to see if I could get another...yep, she no ship no more.
at least I got one 128gb a few weeks back for ~155AUD delivered.
Is this true of all the crucial ssds? Not shipping to oz?
strange i got one not too long ago. my first ssd.
to be honest im not that impressed.
I explained why in the thread earlier or maybe another thread, but its generally because of a specific warehouse. The KT, NY and PA ones always ship international, but otherwise warehouses don't. Just wait for stock to dry up and then other warehouses to get restocked and it'll be all good again.
That or crucial had words with Amazon to stop exporting them, which is fair enough and happens from time to time.
Can't seem to buy Corsair SSD through Amazon either, I'm sure last I checked you could, yet most other Corsair products you can. I can imagine Amazon has been pummelled with Australian orders for cheaper SSD's, maybe distis are complaining to Corsair, Crucial etc to put a stop to it.
Hope they re-stock soon, the 512GB just dropped to $549!!
The 256GB one still says it can ship internationally, but not the 128 or 512 at the moment.
As noted above: availability changes on the fly, you need to view the item specifically and it will display the shipping conditions. I.E when I checked only the 256s were available.
I decided to get an Intel 520 120G instead.
