    I don't know where you got the $130 for shipping. My shipito account says $70 (USPS Priority Mail, _without_ insurance) or $80 (DHL Express, incl. insurance) for a 45x31x8 cm package and 1.5 kg weight.

    One SSD incl. esd foil bag weights 67.5 g. So add some weight for bubble wrap etc.

    For 10 SSDs I calcualate (1.5k + 80) * 1.19 / 10 = $188 each. If you like you can take the exchange rate (paypal calculates with around 1.02) into account - then you end up with $185 per device.

    If the shipping costs are not explicitly mentioned on the invoice, the customs will estimate shipping costs - and letting them estimate is never a good choice. And if the value of the package is above 1.5k - the customs authorities will request a transaction document. They will not accept an invoice!

    I used the 9kg max weight iirc ;)
    And I never had shipping estimated but this will vary depending on the "Amt" :p
    And re max sum & transaction doc - might be, I never get so expensive stuff from out of Europe ;)

    Did you already place the order for the SSDs for Germany/Europe?

    Who coordinates the collective order? Shall we start a separate thread for this?

    @Markus offered to but he seems to be a little short on time.

    I just wanted to get a clear understanding of the price we might see shipping to Europe.
    If we are looking at €180 here I am not entirely sure I need those (spent a bunch of money on nvme drives)

    But I assume a new thread would make sense:)

    Should we switch to another thread or does Xenforo support "Group Chats" if we list the participants separated by comma?
    We could also switch to german then :)

    I think Hailey might be busy right now - the response time is not so fast.
    Regards

    To dig out this older thread, did anyone receive drives from Hailey in 2017?
    I ordered 10 drives for myself, paid Jan 1st and didn't get any info yet, last email 48 hours ago. Recon I will file a paypal dispute, curious if anyone is in holding pattern too as I would love to get the drives instead of rolling back the transaction of course.

    I cannot find Samsung Magician software suited for this drive.
    Any suggestions about how to secure erase the drive in a Windows environment?

    NB. The drive I received had 5 hrs power on time with 11 stop/start cycles. Very happy :)

    Also careful on these, as they are read intensive. They don't have high endurance and whatever you find on pdf is marked with *** (with 23% OP)

    Ah the ones I had in mind were the SM ones which had the endurance rated with the OP.
    These ones should be fine. 0.3 WPD beats any client ssd anyway.
    Apologies, I've made a mistake.

    Considering these drives will probably have Lenovo firmware, will Samsung Magician work or worse, stuff up the drive? Is windows reformat insufficient? Thanks in advance.
