Deal of the week: Enclosures, hard drives, and more
Newegg's pre-Black Friday sales frenzy is still in high gear, with a full page of deals running until Sunday night. I'm seeing a good number of desirable items, including:
- Antec's P183 enclosure, which is on sale for $119.99 after the promo code EMCZZZN35, or $89.99 after a mail-in rebate. That's a clear bargain, considering this same item sold for about $160 not so long ago.
- Samsung's Spinpoint F4 2TB, a 5,400-RPM mass-storage drive is available for only $79.99 (down from $109.99) after the promo code EMCZZZN33. We haven't had a chance to review this bad boy quite yet, but user reviews look overwhelmingly positive, so it's probably a safe buy. And who can say no to four-cent gigabytes?
- OCZ's 16GB Diesel USB 2.0 flash drive, which is on sale for $22.99 (down from $35.99) after the promo code EMCZZZN62. The 2GB version of this drive has served as my keychain for a few years now, and it's held up surprisingly well. Being able to grab the 16-gig version for just over 20 bucks sounds like a pretty good deal to me.
I suppose this is a good opportunity to point out that EVGA's GeForce GTX 460 FTW is still available for $229.99, or $219.99 after a mail-in rebate, and that it comes with a free copy of HAWX 2. We found this card to be slightly quicker and quieter overall than the stock Radeon HD 6870, which is pretty convenient, considering 6870 prices are currently inflated.
