    I did order from Scan and got the 850 Pro, 512GB. I'm getting to the age where saving any more seems a bit futile - can't take it with me and all that!
    The prices have increased due to the weakness of the £ since last June and also many suppliers using Brexit as an excuse.

    Re: OK, I give in, time for an SSD!

    I find the approach of just let your computer patch itself and have a good backup strategy works far better. I've never had a bricked install, but if I did, I reinstall. Day or two inconvenience. If I couldn't live with a rebuild, I'd do bare-metal backups and just restore that.
