Samsung 850 EVO 250GB 2.5-Inch SATA III Internal SSD

· · · Storage

Amazon was having a 48% off their Samsung 850 EVO 250GB last month (I bought it on the 11th November 2015). The listed price is US$149.99 (S$213) and the discounted price is US$74.99 (S$106).

Another good news is that it qualifies for the free AmazonGlobal Saver Shipping to Singapore if your total qualifying purchases are more than US$125.

With the free shipping to Singapore, it is definitely cheaper than the retail price in Singapore. Fuwell is selling the same thing for S$169.

In case you are not aware, the Samsung 850 EVO SSD is the number one selling SSD in the Internal Solid State Drives category of Amazon.

I bought this SSD for Li Xiang’s house desktop computer because it is showing signs of slow down after three years.

For me, after I changed my six years old desktop normal HDD to SSD, it got a new life!
