Samsung's newly released 840 EVO SSD isn't available yet, but as luck would have it, the drive's predecessor is currently on sale at TigerDirect. The e-tailer offers the 120GB model for just $79.99 after a $20 mail-in rebate, and shipping is free. Assuming that rebate check doesn't get lost in the mail, you'll end up paying just 67 cents per gigabyte.
Mechanical storage more up your alley? Then you'll be pleased to know that Seagate's 3TB Desktop HDD hard drive is available at a discount yet again, this time at Amazon for $119.99 shipped. Per-gigabyte cost: just under four cents.
In other news, while memory prices have ballooned up this year, occasional sales can make up for the hikes. Case in point: TigerDirect currently sells an 8GB kit of Patriot DDR3-1600 memory for just $39.99 after a $30 mail-in rebate. (Free shipping is available, as well.) That's not much more than what a similar kit cost last year, before prices went up so dramatically.
The U.S. deals are unfortunately off-limits for our Canadian readers. However, we invite our Canuck friends to peruse NCIX's latest sale. The e-tailer's Back-to-School Kickoff Sale Event includes a number of choice deals, including the same 3TB Seagate hard drive mentioned above for $119.99 CAD. Given the exchange rate at the moment, that's actually cheaper than what Amazon charges.
