Default "Black Friday" Tech Sales

I got an email this morning from Newegg with a list of early black Friday sales, including 27" 144hz 2k monitor for $300 (normally 500) and a 1TB SSD for $130 or $140, and even new RTX 2080 graphics cards slightly discounted. Pretty much any PC component had good prices, if anyone's interested in building one soon.

Feel free to post other good "Black Friday" sales you find from other places here

I've been a good MM holding off any tech purchases (considering a new phone) - except for the PS4 I bought - until I see BF ads.

I'm excited. Hoping for a gaming computer/accessories to on sale.

It's a WD Blue, so good quality, but just realized it's a 24-hour only deal and you need promo code from their email -- if anyone needs any promo codes for stuff and wants to get something today, PM me and I can send you mine.

I got a 1TB SSD off Amazon for just over $200 back in April when the lowest price around was $280+, and it's worked fine for me (Mushkin Reactor), so that SanDisk is probably a fine alternative

SanDisk's data migration software is not as good and easy as Samsung. Samsung's SSDs are more expensive than SanDisk SSD, but they are more durable and faster when rapid mode is turned on.

Never heard of that Brand, should I be concerned with reliability?

Tempting, but other Centon SSDs have bad reviews on Amazon.

I've got the EVO in several machines, always had good luck with those. At that price, I might have to grab another one, although they'll probably come down over time.


EDIT -- where did you see those prices?
