    Amazon is also one of my favorite stores. That said I don't understand why you feel the need to bash Shopping Express/PC Byte/TA in every comment/post.

      How am i bashing SE and PC Byte. Im trying to create competition

        Its totally pointless to the deal to put that there.

          no hes saying this is such a low price due to the buying power of amazon purchasing and USD pricing + blackfriday sales that you wont see it cheaper locally despite our friends PCB and SE always doing fantastic deals for us. Even if they tried, they wouldnt be able to get their distributors to lower the price this much (at least in the short term)

          therefore you should buy it now and not wait around expecting a multibillion dollar retailer to be one upped by 2 brick and mortar stores from the land of premium margins and GST, and end up missing out

          so you and the 19 others than upvoted you can get off your high horse now

          @furythree: Yet he's "trying to create competition". If we already know Aussie stores can't beat Amazon prices, why mention it? Of course there's a good chance SE or PCB can't beat it.

          @happychild100: you know but not everyone does

          hes being helpful, so your comment is the redundant one

          not everyone is as well versed in international foreign exchange, macroeconomics, logistics and eCommerce market forces as well as you

        •  

          If these prices aren't seen as a bad deal in 1-2 years Id be EXTREMELY surprised.

          Why not put that Dell or Harvey Norman or such wont beat these prices? Because we know that, who cares.

        •  

          @furythree: None of that is needed to be known. There's no need to take another dig at SE/PCB/TA, well knowing they can't beat the price of Amazon and their buying power, so what use it putting that in the deal?.

          @happychild100: because he isnt having a dig? hes using them as an example to compare how outrageously good of a deal this is

          Maybe pointless to this deal but certainly has strong points towards their future deals!
          Having said that, these comments are off topic (some say trolling) that was the deal, enjoy or move on.
          Thanks OP. Unfortunately some need extra explanation

        •  

          Id argue OP has the high horse by calling out other stores.

        there is a difference between Australian stocks, delivery times and cost model vs USA cost base and no gst model , so it's a bit unfair to expect Australians to under cut USA prices, though I do encourage competition between australian suppliers.

        I don't expect Australian suppliers to under cut Chinese phone charge cables which China sells for $1 inc postage. when local suppliers deal with local,postage costs.

    •  

      He's not bashing TA in this deal, unless you are referring to the previous deal?

    i need these to be under $300 so i can depreciate them all in this financial year.

    •  

      ill keep an eye out on a sub $300 SSD

      •  

        im sure around xmas they will dip and the dollar strengthens… i wonder if the RBA will cut the rate again in time for xmas.. hrmm

        in any event iv got an amex card, keep an eye out for a bonous on that too!

        • +2 votes

          if rba cuts rates the AUD will fall not rise against the USD

        •  

          @furythree: If we import more than we export, than the dollar will fall too.

        •  

          RBA Last meeting was Melbourne cup, no rate decisions till next year.

        •  

          @furythree:

          Yeah I know. That was the con I was weighing up…. I doubt they will cut them which should see them stay the same. If rba was going to cut to boots confidence and spending at Xmas it should of done so already to give enough lead time. And any cut will be half eaten up the the big 4s increase already in which case they will never cut it by 50 base points given our crazy housing market. I'm just hoping it stays the same and at Xmas we get better sales with a slightly stronger dollar.

    Good deal EC, once all overseas purchases starts charging GST from July 2017, then you can compare SE and PC Byte deals to Amazon deals.

    We should always appreciate local sellers especially those to offer deals to OZBARGAINERS.

    •  

      Someone will come up with a VPN for cash or something :P (bitcoin?)

    •  

      When did the GST on all overseas purchases rule change? My understanding was it would cost the government more to enforce it than it would make them thus they weren't doing it…

      • +1 vote

        They changed it in August. I'm not sure why it received almost no media coverage at the time.

        •  

          they wanted to apply it to bigger suppliers that can be targeted especially those selling digital content because it's easy to collect . but it's not worth chasing small suppliers , eg you target Amazon Apple etc so they pay the govt the gist they should be collecting they but not worth it for smaller sellers because then you burden Aust post to collect from mail order that suppliers didn't charge gst on ……

          similar to how some collect vat for European Union

        im holding out too cause told my self hard and fast $300 or lower

        but fantastic deal nevertheless

        tho this SSD is rather outdated now but still very very good

        still need to fill the other 2 SSDs i got last year lol

  •  

    So what am I doing wrong - it's working out to $316.25 for me. That's with AUD $7.17 Amazon App referral discount.
    SSD is $315.85
    Shipping is $7.59
    Less discount $7.17
    total is $316.25?

    480 is perfect. Time to make use of my hard drive enclosures and the US dollars in my PayPal.

  •  

    Amazing price on the 480. This is the kind of sizing and price that the other places need to offer - SE etc.

  •  

    Thanks for the app discount wiki. I thought shopping express' 480GB epic hour at $208 offer was good. But this deal is amazing! I got it shipped at AUD160.72, that's 33cents/GB. And I twice pulled the trigger on the Samsung evo 850 500GB for AUD215.84 since that's at an all time low price on Amazon too. The price/GB here swayed me from my Samsung fixation.

    As regards to the Amazon app discount wiki, thanks for that again. To give back to the community I've added my referral link there too.

  •  

    Thanks.

    Worked out to be $164aud with the shipping option I chose. (480GB)

    Does anyone know if warranty will hhave to be sent back overseas?

    • +1 vote

      No, you send it to the local depot:

      If you are an Australian customer you will need to deliver or post your defective product to our local depot.

      You are responsible for any expenses you may incur in delivering your defective product to our local depot. All other expenses in relation to your approved warranty claim will be covered by SanDisk.

      Under the Australian Consumer Law (which applies irrespective of our warranty), you may be entitled to recover some or all of your expenses in making this warranty claim.

        you may be entitled to recover some or all of your expenses in making this warranty claim

        I asked them about this when i returned my microsd card to them. They dont give you anything.

        But at least you only have to pay $10 or so to ship it to melbourne (i think it was melbourne…somewhere east)

  •  

    So if you pay in USD, what are you using to work out the aussie equivalent given that amazons exchange rate is way ovsr the top?

    • +1 vote

      I don't have 28 degrees or Citibank cards.My NAB and CommBank cards not only have ridiculous exchange rates, but also charge a 3% conversion fee on Visa purchases. Amazon prices were better for me.

  •  

    Well done on reaching 1600 and a great price.

  •  

    Holy smoke. I was thinking to myself, just earlier this week, that when the price of a 1TB SSD drive drops to $300 AUD I'll buy one, but I wasn't expecting it to be this soon!

    •  

      sames! but still $10 more than we expected

      heck i was thinking that i dont need those free $5/$10 amazon credits cause i wont be buying an SSD soon! damnit!

  •  

    Freaking +1, excellent deal!
    Thanks op!

  •  

    Congratulation for 1600th post! This is indeed good price for 1TB SSD.

  •  

    Ive got a 240gb Ultra II, excellent ssd. Thoroughly recommend, ive had mine for a year now.

  •  

    Awesome 1600th post! Kudos!

  •  

    dang! just bought another brand 250gb for 100 last week :s

  •  

    This is too tempting..
    Does this work with the bonus $10 when buy $50 gift card as in https://www.ozbargain.com.au/?

  •  

    Sorry but can someone explain me how to use amazon locker option with this deal?
    I am trying to checkout but can not see locker option.

  •  

    Urm… Anyone has comments on the quality of the ssd itself? :p

    Heads Up: The 960GB and 480gb are down to 199.99 / 109.99 usd now , i am glad i went to bed to sleep on it first

    i have ordered 2x of the 960gb ssds. YAY i can finally keep all my games on my drives.

    Woke up in the morning, saw this and almost fell off the bed.

  • +1 vote

    OMG woke up seeing 960GB drop further.
    I cancelled my order for 480GB and order for 960GB, too cheap to decline!!
    Ended up with ~AUD 283 with the referral credit
    Cheers OP

  •  

    Wow, fantastic prices (especially for that 960GB).

    Really want to buy that 960GB, but just don't have the moolah. Hopefully it's a sign of the times though and I'll be able to pick up one next year for this price (or perhaps even cheaper) after xmas is done.

    Cheers OP.

  •  

    Too good to resist…
    Just picked one up a few minutes ago, ~$280 AUD delivered to locker after credit. No exchange fees.

  •  

    So tempting although I think I'll wait until next year. Sub $300 for 1TB is about where I want to be, although I wasn't expecting to be there this side of Christmas. Nice work.

  •  

    Wow such a good price. Now to decide whether to go 960GB or 480GB….decisions.

      obviously go for 960… :)

      future djevoultion will thank me that he doesn't need to sell the 480 and buy another ~1TB drive…

    I brought the same Sandisk Ultra II 960Gb SSD on B&H photo video store for $199 USD.. & with final shipping to Aust it comes to $304 AUD.. Good price than Amazon I think. Just follow the link http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1075748-REG/sandisk_sd...

    But, the exchange rate on Amazon is pretty bad than B&D photo video store.. It will only be noticed at the Checkout page..
