These kind of deals are shown for advertisement by ecom companies. In the past some lucky customers were able to get there hands on some units. But, now the worst part is that most of these kind of deals are fake and never completed. Bad still is the fact that your money would be kept by the ecom company in there account for weeks before these are cancelled. Its quite a shady practice. Even if 1 or 2 customers do get the product then also what is the point of holding 100's-1000's customer's money in ecom account just to cancel it weeks later? It is actually quite profitable for them as they get good interest in the process. And the customer not only losses the product but also the potential interest that he would have earned if it was in his own account.

I advice not to fall for these fake offers. If the offer is too good to be true then it is probably fake.

Managed to buy this.The product page didn't have a buy now option but 'See all buying options' where Appario Retail Private Ltd had it at 13199.

Reviews seems decent on both amazon US and Newegg. sells for over $200 there. Don't know what I'll do with a 2TB SSD though
@soulweaver was looking for a 2 TB SSD with warranty.
