It's regularly $110 on Amazon with no tax, this is basically regular price unless you're in Alberta. Also the Gammix is $10 cheaper on amazon with no tax.

It sometimes confuses me, amazon doesn't charge tax on SSD, but most retailers do.

Any particular reason?

My guess with the SSDs on Amazon, is that the importer already paid the tax, when they brought it over customs and is now just bundling it into the cost of the drive.

Anyone have experience with ADATA's RMA service?
Do they have a service center in Canada?

Only thing with the gammix is the added on heatsink. So if you can't remove, for example, a motherboards thermal guard or don't care to have it this may not fit. I know you can remove the heatsink, but mine was put on very snug you wouldn't be able to just pry it off by hand without damaging the PCB, you would need a heat gun imo.

Good to know to those with mobo clearance issues. Is it affixed via thermal adhesive?

Would a hairdryer work? That's how I usually get things that are glued together to come off.

Ya that's true. There are other good drives under $100 though. The Sabrent is currently $92 taxes in. Silicon Power drive is $90 before tax if you prefer a more known brand (same basic drive as the Sabrent though). Neither of those have large heat spreaders.

Possibly, should work. People use hair dryers to remove molding and decal/badges off of cars.
