We're going to mix things up a little this week and kick off our deal post with two discounted power supplies—both from Corsair.
Newegg currently offers Corsair's Professional Series HX650, a 650W unit with 80 Plus Gold certification and modular cabling, for only $79.99 after a $30-off promo code (AFNJ128) and a $10 mail-in rebate. That's a pretty sizable discount from the regular list price of $119.99—and shipping is offered free of charge. Not bad for such a nice (and well-reviewed) PSU. Just don't wait too long; the deal is only good through February 3.
If that's too rich for your blood, you can also snag Corsair's Builder Series CX430 for just $15.99 after a 20%-off promo code (PSU80B0113) and a $20 mail-in rebate. Shipping is free for this one, too. The CX430 only has 80 Plus Bronze certification and lacks modular cabling, but it's still a solid buy, especially for so little money. (Thanks to SlickDeals for this one.)
Need an enclosure to play host to these PSUs? You're in luck, then, because Corsair's Carbide Series 200R enclosure is available for $34.99 after a mail-in rebate—and including free shipping. This case earned our TR Editor's Choice award when it was still priced at $60. Now, at $35, it's practically a steal.
We also see Amazon is selling Western Digital's 3TB Caviar Green hard drive for $129.99, which seems to be about 10 bucks below the usual list price. An SSD will run circles around this thing, but in terms of raw cost per gigabyte, the Caviar Green can't be beat. 3TB is a heckuva lot of room.
Finally, if you're feeling adventurous, Newegg has a 7" Android 4.0 tablet on sale for $67.99. This "MID M729" features a single-core ARM processor, 512MB of RAM, 4GB of storage, an 800x480 display resolution, and a day-glo blue enclosure. Newegg reviews pretty much confirm that this is a bargain-bin item—the touch screen apparently uses resistive, not capacitive, technology—but hey, it's only $67.99. Even the cheapest Kindle Fire costs more than twice as much.
Before we sign off, our Canadian friends are, as always, encouraged to check out NCIX's latest sale. The e-tailer's Hog Wild sale event includes some nifty storage deals, like a 2TB 7,200-RPM Seagate Barracuda for $89.99 and the aforementioned 3TB WD Caviar Green for $129.99.
