Was watching this one for the last few days at £149.99, then suddenly today it dropped down by £15. Most other sites are listing it still around the 150 mark so it seems like a good deal. Not sure if this will end up in the Black Friday sale at some point but for now its the cheapest price I can find. No idea how long this price will last either, but knowing Amazons history of price changes, i'd move quick

Exchange rates.

This isn't a lightning deal for a start :D

Quick question if anyone wouldn't mind answering... I have recently used the crucial tool to see which drive would suit my laptop one thing that is apparent is it states 7mm drive to 9mm with adaptor. I guess there is a spacer that comes with the crucial drives, am I correct?

Wait for Black Friday lightning deal, it'll surely be cheaper than this, regardless of brexit.
#9
I wouldn't bother to spend the premium on the 950 evo any more, over say m.2 or pci-e ssd drives
#10
Got last year for 90.99 in black friday. However not got my hopes up this year as all RRP for items i bought last year in black friday sale is up at least 20% probably due to exchange rate.
#11
A year ago these were RRP at 117.94 on Amazon, just checked my year old receipt. Now stating they are 149.99 ouch.

Yes you are. Every ssd I've ever bought regardless of make has come with a spacer.

Even before exchange rate drops these have been higher priced in the first half of this year than the back end of last year. Technology is supposed to get cheaper, not dearer...oO
#18
Did we all get this last year at £91 on Amazon? Damn, I thought I had ninja'd that deal but seems there were loads. :P

Of course....Brexit is to blame for all that's wrong in the world.

C'mon, wake up sheeple & think for yourselves....

Most commodities & goods are traded in US dollars. The sterling/dollar spot rate is down roughly 20% from this time last year. This product is up 50% on the price it could have been bought this time last year. There is also the passage of time at play here.....Normally responsible in tech terms as cheaper same spec goods, or better spec goods for the same money. One might normally therefore expect a £90 500GB 850 EVO to be maybe £75 -£85 a year on, given advancements in tech, larger economies of scale as SSD's become more & more mainstream etc etc

So there's clearly more at play here than 'ugh...Brexit innit...ugh'. Much more

I find it sad really. Brexit is an easy excuse. Nothing has even happened except the overvalued currency falling to it proper level. The Pound used to buy 2 dollars, didn't see anybody crying as it reduced to less than 1.5 (before the Brexit vote before the smartarses comment)

What people are doing by saying 'oh brexit' every time is allowing companies an easy excuse to increase profit margins, whether costs to them are going up or not. If they see people factoring 'brexit' increases in their heads, why wouldnt they raise prices to a level that we are shouting about. And then how would you know what is a genuine price rise due to increased cost or a blatant attempt to increase profits. People really have to think.

As you said, the pound was overvalued.

What do you think the outcome of a currency correcting itself is? Things cost more.

Well that didn't last very long at all; didn't even decide myself on getting it. I agree with many of you that this will likely get cheaper later in the Black Friday sales but figured for anyone who needed it more urgently it was a good choice. I'm sorry for starting a Brexit debate along the way too, I for one just wanted some cheap space for my computer. Hopefully we'll be getting something nearer that £110 mark in the next week or so but for now I'd better expire the deal.

So many brain dead sheep that know nothing about how economics / fiat currencies commenting on Brexit. Oh the pound weakened during the referendum, therefore correlation equals causation. The ponzi scheme was always going to collapse eventually, blaming a single straw for the camels back problems shows your compete lack of understanding.

Prices for technology are supposed to go down over time.
Even pre Brexit this drive never dropped as low as the lightning deal mentioned above.

Great technology that ages well and is widely considered "The best" doesn't always come down in price.

This is not the first, nor will it be the last time, some technology holds their prices for extended periods of time.

Where's the explanation of economics, citation of sources and well laid out debate explaining what you believe is the underlying cause for price increases? Seriously, you could easily sway me by detailing exactly what is going on rather than pontificate from your high horse but do nothing to enlighten the 'brain dead sheep'.

I bought this today, was going to have 1tb from Maplins. but thought it would be a waste in the end!

The pro is better, but this is going to suit me down to the ground.

Why have I bought it, because I was going to by a MacBook pro but thought... why bother windows 10 is actually pretty good and I'm familiar with it, and I'm not paying rob dog apple prices
#31
has gone up to £150 now. (1TB is £284.78)
#32
Good spot OP. The 1TB version is £285 on Amazon, after being out of stock for 2 weeks or so. £15 cheaper at Maplin.

Off topic, anyone see that big splash in the Sunday Times about goods in the Amazon Marketplace often being cheaper on the seller's own site ? (Does not apply to the above product obs.).

They were only about 115 a few months ago.
