Deal of the week: SSDs, mice, games, and more


— 5:57 PM on January 4, 2013

Post-holiday sales are still popping up around the web, and as it happens, Newegg has one running today and through the weekend. Among the items featured are a few solid bargains:

  • Intel's 335 Series 240GB, a speedy, SandForce-powered solid-state drive backed by a three-year warranty, for $174.99 shipped.
  • Corsair's button-laden Vengeance M90 mouse for $29.99 (after free shipping and a $20-off mail-in rebate). The M90 has 15 buttons and a comfortable design that mixes plastic and aluminum. We at TR are more partial to the M60, but MMO players need love, too.
  • A 16GB dual-channel kit of Corsair's DDR3-1600 mobile memory for $62.04 shipped (after a 15%-off promo code, EMCNJNF27). 16 gigs may be overkill for a laptop, but at that price, it's also very tempting.
  • Corsair's Builder Series CX430 430W power supply for $19.99 (after a $5-off promo code, EMCNJNF59, and a $20-off mail-in rebate). This is an 80 Plus Bronze certified unit with good reviews, and it would make an excellent companion to a build like our System Guide's Econobox. Keep in mind even our high-end GPU test rigs draw less than 300W under load.

Meanwhile, over at Amazon, those 2K Games digital bundles are still on sale—and one of them, the 2K Mega Pack, has gotten a $5 cut. Amazon currently charges...

  • $9.99 for the Crazy Action Pack, which includes Borderlands GOTY Edition, The Darkness II, and Duke Nukem Forever.
  • $19.99 for the 2K Strategy Super Pack, which includes Civilization V: GOTY Edition, Civilization V: Gods and Kings, Civilization IV: The Complete Edition, and The Stronghold Collection.
  • $24.99 for the 2K Mega Pack, which comprises all of the above (except for Gods and Kings) plus Borderlands GOTY Edition, CivCity: Rome, Duke Nukem Forever Complete Pack, and Mafia II.

Not bad... and the Crazy Action and Mega packs both have a copy of Duke Nukem Forever, which is worth playing for the comedy value alone.

What about our Canadian readers? NCIX has a sale running, too: the New Year's Sale Event. I'm seeing a 240GB Mushkin SSD priced at $159.99 CAD and Corsair's Vengeance M60 mouse priced at $39.99 CAD, just to name a couple of deals. There are many more on the sale page.

Like what we're doing? Pay what you want to support TR and get nifty extra features.
