    I wonder if Chinese investigation on possible DRAM/NAND/SSD price fixing has anything to do with this unexpected price fall...

    I did swipe up an 500GB Samsung 960 EVO 2 weeks ago for only 120 euro.

    I remember them being double just half a year ago.

    You know why prices have dropped significantly?

    Because I just bought one a couple of weeks ago.

    That's why.o_O

    Yeah, good SSD 1Tb is now down to ~ 200€.

    Nvme is still a bit expensive though.. ok'ish 500GB variant is ~200€.

    Price drops can only be a good thing for the consumer

    They are dropping indeed, but I wouldn't call it "significantly".
    I've been monitoring some 1TB drives for a while and while they are sloooowly creeping towards 200 Eur, they are still quite expensive.

    But yes, if you compare with 1 year ago, the drop is significant. It just didn't happen right now.

    Doesn't look like a "drop" at all. More of a correction.

    The 860 however is also dropping, making it slightly cheaper now than 850. Interesting ?

    Nice I might have to dig out the credit card and start buying from the U.S. as we're still getting shafted on prices here 500GB 860 pro is still over $340NZD here even with the exchange rate it still works out cheaper from the U.S. than to buy local

    Just received a Micron 2 TB SSD deal offer for 254 US$ with free shipping.

    Seems a significantly correction to me.

    Yes I noticed this in the latest Bestbuy weekly flier, they have an Evo 1TB for 249.99... I thought it was a typo.
