Same price at Amazon and no need to worrying about having to deal with eBuyer and their bipolar customer service behaviour

Buy from anywhere other than ebuyer. Nasty company.
Cold because Ebuyer
Cold because cheaper at Aria (£5 cashback)

I had spent about £10,000 over a 5 year period with them and when they made a mistake they banned my account and blacklisted my work address. I won't bore you with the story but Ebuyer are as bad if not worse than Currys/PC World.

Quite a good deal. I paid ~ £230 on Amazon a few weeks ago for the 1TB version.
I'd also strongly suggest getting the nearly identical in performance, new MX500 that's almost £10 cheaper and the same storage capacity amazon.co.uk/dp/…-21

I've had a similar experience. Spent a lot of money with them over the years, would always use them for parts when doing work for other people and always recommended them whenever I was asked for a cheap, reliable place to purchase bits from - until I had a run in with their customer services about a return. Requested they delete my details so they don't contact me anymore and haven't dealt with them since.
Is there a reason SSD prices have gone up a a little bit in the past couple of years? I got a 500GB 850 Evo for £90ish a couple years back (and no i'm not bragging or anything) just want to know what has changed?

Shortage of the NAND chips, but now they've got new researched chips and it is cheaper to be produced.

Aha! Once a year everyone is advised to play their favorite game! Probably actually quite good for you, might help some de-stress people! Certainly does for me!

That's a good price for this SSD. It looked like we were going to see the prices reducing further, but they have apparently settled here. The Crucial MX500 500GB has been as low as £90, but is back to £100.

Hot
Yesterday I tried to announce Amazon's offer for Samsung EVO 860 SSD £98.89 but my deal was rejected because the seller was not permitted on HUKD (despite the fact that item has been fulfilled by Amazon).
Later I saw the same disk even cheaper £95.29 but I haven't tried to announce this because it seems that the HUKD community is limited to selected offers.
So with the Amazon Top up in store offer (£10 extra free) I saved £20 compared to the offer presented here.
So where was the really hot deal?
Not here...
There is a very detailed comparison on you tube 860 EVO VS MX 500.


Some video takeaways -
Both are identical in performance buy which ever is cheaper
Buy samsung for the cloning superiority of software.

I bought 860 EVO 250GB for £55 using the £10 promo on £40 amazon in store top up offer.

Hi!

I am thinking of getting the 1TB Version - was looking at ebay but worried that the 5 year warranty may not apply to ebay purchases from private individuals?

Please can you tell me what is this "amazon instore top up offer" & how does it work? Is £10 the maximum off?

Regarding the warranty may be worth checking with seller by sending a message. But 5 years a long time I would pay a bit extra and buy from a reputed seller.

I agree. A while back Ebuyer was caught removing negative reviews from its own site. Needless to say this isn't good.

And in case that's not enough to deter folk from buying from them, their sister company,Wren Kitchens are as crooked as it gets. They have been investigated by 'Which' twice, the latter they were fined after pleading guilty to breaking the Unfair Trading Regulations 2008. The Which report ranked them 11th place out of a review of 12 British kitchen companies. They have also appeared on Rip off Britain recently, as well as BBC Watchdog, their findings were shocking.
Can I use this as external drive? Does it come with USB connection?

Hi, you'd need to buy a caddy to use it as an external drive. All you get is the drive and instructions in the box.

I didn't know any of that, cheers.

Don't really need a caddy.if you don't want it. Just buy a SATA 3 to USB 3 adapter to connect it to any laptop, PC.
People on here... more fool you for using Ebuyer.
Over 600 now yet still cheaper with Aria
