Hey folks,
 
Just wanted to say that I did exactly what @dan2h advised and I managed to replace my SSD in my mid-2012 MacBook Pro 15' Retina with a Samsung 850 EVO mSATA. It works fine.
 
Basically you just order the Samsung SSD, then you buy [https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B018KHPUYK/ref=pe_1909131_77697121_tnp_email_TE_AMZLdp_1|this adapter] and follow the instructions in [https://eshop.macsales.com/installvideos/macbookpro_15_retinadisplay_mid12_unibody_ssd/|this video.] Don't forget to get the special screwdrivers, P5 and T5; I used [https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00DXZ5PE0/ref=pe_1909131_77697001_tnp_email_TE_AMZLdp_1|this one] because it was half price.
 
The key point here is that Apple charges £490 to replace the SSD for my particular model (alternatively the OWC and Jetdrive productscustom-built SSDs are priced in the same range), but I fixed it myself for ~£150.

Thanks to everyone whose online footprints I've followed. Hope this helps someone in the future.
