Deal of the week: A 3TB hard drive, a free game, some RAM, and tablets
We're going to keep this week's deal post short and sweet, thanks to the magic of HTML lists—and because writing lists in prose is, like, totally boring.
- Western Digital's 3TB Red hard drive is available for $139.99 shipped at both Amazon and Newegg. (Newegg requires you to use a coupon code, HDPR72SALE20, to get the lower price. Amazon does not.) The Red is a fine mass-storage drive; it's similar to WD's Green offerings but has been optimized for RAID configurations. WD covers the Red with a three-year warranty, which is better than the two-year coverage you get with a lot of desktop drives these days.
- Amazon is offering a $30 of credit for 2K Games titles if you pre-order BioShock Infinite (as a Steam download) for $59.99. The credit is redeemable when BioShock Infinite comes out on March 26, and it's enough to get you a free copy of Borderlands GOTY Edition—or any other sub-$30 title in the 2K catalog.
- Newegg lets you take 10% off desktop memory with the coupon code EMCXTWR29. You can grab, for example, an 8GB Crucial DDR3-1600 kit for $53.09 shipped (down from $58.99). Another coupon code, EMCXTWR32, takes 10% off all laptop memory, bringing Corsair's 8GB DDR3-1600 SO-DIMM kit to $49.49 (down from $54.99).
- Oh, and in case you missed our news post this morning, Amazon's 8.9" Kindle Fire HD tablet has gotten a price cut. The base Wi-Fi model is now available for $269, and the 4G LTE version is $399. That's down from $299 and $499, respectively, before the price cut.
If you happen to reside in Canada, you can also check out NCIX's St. Patrick's Day sale, which includes deals like Samsung's 840 Series 120GB for $99.49 CAD and Asus' Transformer TF300T 10.1" Android tablet for $369.99.
All right, that's all, folks. Enjoy your weekend—and try not to max out your credit cards.
