    Re: Crucial BX300 480GB SSD

    Good value? The state of modern consumer SSDs is so depressing. A few years ago the 850 EVO 250GB was selling for 53 UKP on Amazon, now look at where we're at, what a mess. SSDs are more expensive, RAM is more expensive, GPU pricing has gone up, the whole PC scene costs substantially more. Great that MLC is still around, but really not much has changed since the 850 EVO came out.

    A few years ago the £ was also worth more than a handful of magic beans to add to the pot of overpricing

    As adidan so eloquently points out:

    But to put a bit more detail on that - in 2014 the dollar was worth ~ 60p. Now the dollar is worth > 75p. So slap 25% on every price you remember from 2014 before you do any comparisons.

    Of course, there are a number of other factors in play here too - most obviously a global NAND and RAM shortage as demand outstripped expectation and fabs have had to either play catch-up or reconsider the split between NAND and RAM they churn out (and apparently the transition from 2D to 3D NAND had an impact too). But the currency issues amplify all the other problems...
