    Seller does not indicate selling outside Germany, but in my experience, when you ask them, 90% will agree to ship!
    You can ask, its so much cheaper.

    Why is it better?

    The seller the OP references in the first post indicates he will ship worldwide and he includes the statement:

    So the SM951 is indeed an AHCI device that will work in a cMP when mounted on a PCIe card and runs at full speed in PCIe slots 3 & 4. I see absolutely no issue here.

    Well if you prefer to pay 40% more, I guess there is no difference.

    I would recommend buying from RamCity. They are an actual distributor (rather than a random eBay seller) and provide warranty for the drive. I met the CEO a couple of times while I worked at AnandTech and he's a super cool guy as well, and even has an account here.

    Refurbished is likely just a returned drive from someone who had an incompatible system. I got a couple of refurbs from them for testing and zero difference to new ones (these are OEM drives, so even new ones don't have fancy packaging).
