    If you have a need to pre-order the 4TB 850 Evo and are in the US, it's actually cheaper to order it from UK sites due to the incredibly favourable exchange rate right now.

    For example Amazon UK list it for £1,250. After subtracting VAT (20%) and adding shipping (£10), the total comes out to just over £1,050, which is under $1400. Most reputable US sites list it for $1500, so you basically save $100 if you're willing to wait for shipment from UK. This should go without saying but you should also use a credit card with zero forex fees.

    The only curveball could be import duties, of which I'm not really familiar.

    I mean... A storage drive that costs more than a high end gaming desktop is certainly not affordable. When they drop into the 200-300 dollar range (fitting cost for a high end desktop from like 1800+) I would say they are more affordable. I wouldn't pay over half my laptop for a storage drive.

    If price drop trends don't stagnate it would be more like 5 years. 500GB ssds were like 1000 dollars in 2011. A 1TB now (250ish) would get you 120GB back then. Hopefully the trend will continue.

    Personally what I'm waiting for is when 2TB SSDs drop in price. Most of the time at the moment they go for more than 2 x a 1TB SSD.
