    There is a notice that drives are in the antistatic bags instead of original boxes but still brand new.
    The price is so low that it's a little but suspicious.

    If you know better options please tell me: one of my friends is looking for such drives at the moment. RRP for these drives - $567, the lowest offer at the moment on the Amazon UK - £540.

    $50 off is not worthy of a "Great Deal" post is what I'm saying.

    Why not get 2x of the 480gb for $100 each? That's MUCH cheaper, and more performance having multiple drives?

    It's SM863, not PM863. 3DWPD instead of 0.3DWPD. Faster writes, more IOPS. It's new with 5 years warranty. And BO option. They declined 250, but probably it's possible to lower listed price. I'll tell what price my friend will have at the end of negotiations.

    And there are no offers for SM863 even for RRP by the way. The only option on the US eBay - $800 OBO for these drives, the last sale in the middle of November - $640 (with 4 drives overal). One drive is in stock on Amazon US for $579, others - $740-800. So at the moment it's pretty good option, especially for EU, I think.

    Don't know what's going on with SM863 drives but prices went up for at least $250 for 1.92TB version (actually even more, and I wanted to buy a few pretty soon :( ). Didn't notice old prices for 960GB version though, so can say nothing about changes.

    @heathen ooooh, that makes more sense ;) I missed the SM !! Sorry.

    Sadly, still not really a 'deal' since only 50-60 off retail :(

    I think the SM may be a bit more rare to find?

    There were many more offers just a few months ago.
    This model is pretty new, so may be Samsung just doesn't manufacture SM drives in demanding amounts yet.
