It's official: prices for solid states drives are bonkers -- in a good way. Especially if you can get one at a discount. Take this eBay deal for a 2.5" 500GB Samsung 850 EVO. Normally $400 (the RRP anyway), it can be yours for the scrumptious figure of $188 delivered.
The deal, spotted by OzBargain user "perox", is being offered by Shopping Express' eBay storefront. Currently it's on sale for $235, but if you use one of the following coupons, you'll get another 20 per cent off.
PCTECH (valid until January 22)
PRAWNS (valid until January 28)
While it's not the fastest drive, it's a pretty darn quick for the price. Definitely a nice upgrade for an older notebook, or a PC that's still chugging away with a HDD for a primary disk.
