This seemed like a nice deal, already voted hot .
Just bought 1 voted hot
Good price. This is same as Crucial MX300 but only available for OEM market.
i've been waiting for years for a 2tb SSD to come to a decent price to upgrade my laptops 2tb HDD. hopefully they start dropping even cheaper across the other brands too
I bit on the SanDisk 2tb for £155. Should have waited for this haha. Hot
Are there any reliability stats or reviews for this manufacturer/ drive.
@Bigspin I know you said that it's the same as the Crucial MX300 - is it identical or a slightly lesser version?
You are gambling with this.

You essentially are saving the price of the warranty. The risk is yours, not the suppier's.

You may as well be buying a non-warranty item as what the effect of this purchase is. Its OEM so will not be under warranty with the manufacturer and in all probability you will get nowhere with the ebay supplier.

I bought a cheap SSD from a no name brand only for it to fail after a few weeks; whereas my branded ones are all working.

Same. Micron is Crucial's parent company. Crucial is their consumer brand.

It isn't all that bad IMHO. You get 6 months with Paypal as a baseline and after that who is to say the manufacturer warranty won't apply? I believe a lot of them do it via serial number printed on the drive itself so the lack of box/packaging should not be an issue.

Aside from that, if it works for the first 6 months (that you get with Paypal) it will probably work for several years as new devices most commonly fail in the first weeks of use i.e. due to manufacturing issues, so Paypal as you covered for the most risky part.

Personally I'd rather have a good £50 plus off the price than the drive in a fancy box that may, or may not, help with warranty claims but each to their own...

You are gambling by buying OEM product from some no name seller on eBay, yes.

Comparing Micron to no name brand is just silly.

The ebay listing says it comes with full manufacturer's warranty.

Thanks OP. Purchased!
Could try putting in serial number of drive in listing and see what comes up with on the Micron site.
Breaking the price down comes to 4 x 500gb drives for £40 each.
Must resist til BF.....

Are SSDs really likely to fall below this on BF? Waiting for BF for an Xbox HDD but this is tempting

take a look at the amazon reviews 20% of purchasers give it 3 stars or less. For an SSD, that is not good.

Also Micron ONLY honors the 3 year warranty through OFFICIAL resellers. Outside of that, you have an uphill battle, perhaps a slightly easier one with Amazon's resellers however, as Amazon is more likely to have your back than most others - ebay random reseller - no chance! You will be wasting your time with the ebay reseller, check the comments from dissatisfied customers. The e-bay seller will tell you to contact Micron, Micron will tell you the warranty is not valid for this reseller, that is if you can get hold of Micron - they don't have a support number because they don't provide support.

Micron provide oem drives and dont provide support to individuals through the Micron brand. Checkout other Micron SSDs sold through AMazon - there is no warranty information. Amazon will offer their own 1 year warranty. YOu have to purchase a warranty if you want it to be longer.

All that assumes it goes wrong outside of the eBay 30 day and Paypal 180 day coverage periods though, which in most cases they won't as most faults are either there from the factory (in which case they will arise quickly) or occur as a factor of wear and tear, which would be over several years.

Irrelevant to me though anyway as I didn't actually buy since I don't need an SSD right now, just posted to balance out the nay saying, but if I did need one I would have no hesitation...
Thanks been on the lookout for a decent price 2 tb SSD as out of space, and just in time for
red dead redemption 2
Amazon sells this 2TB for £250, cheapest 1tb for this is at Scan for £179

For those seeking reviews, 20% of rams and ssd sold worldwide had memory chips from Micron...

You talk of "branding" micron is literally one of the biggest brands in pc memory/hardware. I've bought this deal and I'm not worried at all

I know but they dont sell direct as Micron, they are oem drives which have then been sold on. They do not have a warranty. The warranty is with the OEM not this ebay seller. The ebay seller is misselling because there is no 3 year manufacturer warranty with these. The saving you are making on these - perhaps £20-30 is the warranty. So the seller is taking you for a ride.
