Just hit a price alert on MX500. Be sure to select Style Name: SSD to get the AmazonUK price of $312.53
Oh yeah you've got to go to the Other Sellers on Amazon and manually select sold by Amazon UK. It defaults to the Amazon AU sale at a higher price on the product page. Just selecting SSD and 2TB doesn't show the Amazon UK price.
Edit: and now it does automatically show the Amazon UK price. The OP has fixed the web link. Thanks. :)
arrgh if only it was NVME…
Not sure if it will deliver to Australia but it's $359 and it says it does.
Looks like it adds gst when you go to pay to $392 :(
The A-Data drive for $393 - supposedly competes with the much more expensive Samsung 970 drive
Not a bad price but worth keeping in mind pricing history from local sellers on other platforms which were in similar ball park ranges (or even cheaper) in the last few months for the 2TB MX500.
That being said, the 2TB MX500 is a great drive. I use one for a Steam drive!
Don't think so, take a look at https://www.ozbargain.com.au/product/crucial-mx500 (assuming that deals were tagged correctly.)
The only cheaper one was a dodgy afterpay sale.
Every other one has been more expensive or + delivery.
Point taken but I believe "similar ball park ranges (or even cheaper)" is sufficiently accurate to cover the range of $301.15 (using the Afterpay discount code which is a more 'valid' deal than say a price-beat IMO) to $315 + $9.95 shipping… and also comes down to whether or not the buyer cares about whether it's local vs grey stock and the considerations around shipping time and warranty.
As at today though, this does seem to be the cheapest price that I can see for it delivered to your door based on the tags.
Cheapest today seems to be Shopping Express at $295 + delivery (circa $10). Thanks jl434
There was nothing dodgy about the $305 afterpay one. i bought on that deal and it arrived 2 days later with free shipping :)
What was dodgy about the afterpay sale? I used it for multiple items and all went well.
At least the MX500 2TB SSD model comes with a 2GB DRAM cache. That's got to help a lot for performance.
Of the Amazon international sites, always thought only Amazon US sold through AU with free Prime shipping.
No it's also Amazon UK too.
Is this new or has this always been the case?
ALWAYS HAS BEEN.
@Fire Chicken: Ahhh I see, you're a man of culture as well
Got the same Price Alert.
I've always found myself staring at the dip in the chart on around 29th July to $131.21
Is that legit or is that $131 + >$200 shipping?
It was probably a pricing mistake.
if only you want to wait for at least a month…
Shopping express $295 + Delivery: https://www.shoppingexpress.com.au/buy/crucial-mx500-2tb-560...
Good find; even $12 delivery makes it cheaper and will likely get to you quicker than AmazonUK.
You know, you can get that information from the link you posted 30 minutes ago (when replying to jace). Just need to go through the deals.
Totally worthy of being posted as a deal in itself!
Local stock for cheaper. Sorry OP have to neg
No you don't have to.
I knew someone was going to say this lol
Suggest another way to draw attention to a comment?
@Void: I don't have to.
Has anyone had any experience with Shopping Express Returns/Warranty?
(Amazon is usually pretty good)
Shopping Express is also trading as Futu_Online. Like most computer stores there are some positive and some not so positive stories on forums but at least from what I've seen, they're reasonable.
Amazon on the other hand is generally excellent when dealing with items sold/shipped by Amazon AU. Where it gets a bit murkier is when you are buying from the Amazon Global Store (i.e. Amazon US/UK via AU) and you may run into challenges later on once you've gone past whatever Amazon AU is providing a warranty on (IIRC it's a 30 day/DOA-type warranty) due to the items being grey imports. I haven't looked into Crucial specifically but it will come down to whether the manufacturer offers international warranty as standard (some do, some don't). If they don't, it might require you to ship it back to the country where it was sold.
futu online Customer service is non existent outside of ebay in my experience. I had a dead TP-LINK POE adapter i needed to do a warranty claim on, emailed them more than 10 times over 2 weeks and got zero replies. Ended up going through manufacturer and was resolved fairly quick after i expressed my disappointment of futu being one of there AD's
Amazon AU although not always a positive outcome always get back to you and at least try
Haven't ever had a problem with these guys, purchased my new compute from them about 18 months ago and I received DOA ram and they replaced it with no problems. Just had to wait for the manufacturer to send replacements which was the worst part.
Each dealing with them has been professional and they have always been very quick with their deliveries.
Hope that helps.
Is this out of China ?
Needs to be under $300 so I can claim tax in this fy otherwise no deal.
$295 at Shopping Express. (+ Delivery)
Would that work?
Delivery price would bring it over $300 total. It probably factors the total price into the tax claim.
Yeah LOL this was bad timing. You can get it for cheaper from Shopping Express and get it within a few days instead of a month or more.
I'm seeing $318.18, but would still go for this over the other using Amazon gift cards. Makes it marginally cheaper for me.
