    SSD prices are on a freefall. You can even buy 480GB SSD now for less than 6k shipped. They're only going to get lot cheaper as time passes.

    In this case not exactly bad. The 850 EVO and follow on models are all excellent performers. Incredible vfm if the prices drop. Good chance for people holding out on buying to performing ssd's to go for them now

    Ended up paying almost 12000 for 256GB M2 970 imported from USA because it got randomly screened for customs :-/

    Every parcel will be charged customs. No random screening. Always ask some one to carry it from it.
    BTW. How was it shipped ? Post or Courier

    I've had quite a few articles coming in via USPS and most of them got cleared w/o a fuss and most of the times with no duty and sometimes quite a small amount, all based on declaration. There's this flying squad kind of team which got hold of the current parcel. Parcel had 3 items, a base 970, another 970 Pro and an Amazon 4k stick. Rs 9600 penalty levied. A friend in custom got the details of package and helped with quick clearance but had to pay close to 41% of estimated value. USPS has always been the medium.

    It was a moment of weakness for 970 that made us get all 3 items via USPS as the person who could have carried it changed plans. :banghead::banghead:

    41% is the norm now and a big pain. The number of deals i had to let go just cos it was too expensive to import it... sigh...

    How do you use USPS?
    someone ships it for you or there is some kind of package forwarder?
