I have added heat but must admit to slightly going off Samsung products, look great to start with but don't seem to last the test of time, both my TV and phone are nowhere near as good in quality and performance as they were 12 months ago.

I paid this much for my 500Gb. SSD's will be massively affordable one day just like mechanical hdd's are now.

EVERYTHING I have ever bought from Amazon has been perfectly packaged, including computer parts as well as a bunch of christmas presents I purchased this year. All of them delivered perfectly. You sure you ordered directly from Amazon and not Amazon Marketplace?

You won't, an ssd will come in retail packaging, a small box which is perfectly adequate.

Heres my 2tb drive I received last week, had also ordered a small glass puller as it was for my iMac ( guess why its in the bigger box, even though its smaller than the drive) going to send back as can imagine it could be damaged as was just under all the packing

I had some perfume arrive today, nice and snug inside a big box like this. There was alot of paper to support the item though. Computer parts are pretty sturdy and hard to physically break. I'd still use the hard drive myself. Test it and check for bad sectors to see if the drive is damaged at all. Doubt it though.

I think mechanical Hard drives new out of the box have their heads (the main bit that moves) parked in a certain way by the factory so that they do not get damaged during transportation, once the drive is turned on then the risk is increased, but again they can take a fair pounding these days as long as they are not turned on.

hehe I just said Hard Drive and taking a fair pounding in one comment :)

My SSD from Amazon arrived in a single cardboard envelope, which shocked me, but then realised that it cant be damaged by vibrations.

in a year now, the price could be around £150 for 2tb

I have added heat but must admit to slightly going off Samsung products, look great to start with but don't seem to last the test of time, both my TV and phone are nowhere near as good in quality and performance as they were 12 months ago.

I have to agree. BUT even though I criticised Samsung products a lot but SSDs I can really vouch for.

Still remember when 960GB sized SSD's first got released and the price was close to a grand! :O
Wonder how many rich folk with deep pockets jumped in at that price? Good to see prices on SSD's really plummeting but in my opinion it's taken far too many years!

It's worth mentioning that the new Samsung 850 EVO is due out any time now and is faster than the 840 EVO with lower power consumption and a longer lifespan, although it's unlikely to initially be as cheap as this!

They seem to be pulling a Sony, once you start having a good reputation, you switch to cheap plastic sh*t.
