Deal of the week: Cheap memory, discounted storage, and free games


— 12:31 PM on January 17, 2014

Retailers are still recovering from their holiday sales, so the deals landscape is a little barren. However, we've found some nice discounts on a couple of products, a flexible coupon code, and two limited-time freebies.

  • Adata's SP900 Premier Pro 256GB SSD is $134.99 at TigerDirect. That works out to 53 cents per gig, which is about as cheap as contemporary drives get. (Thanks to the HardForum for the tip.)
  • WD's Green 4TB hard drive is down to $154.99 at Newegg after promo code EMCPWWD23. That's the lowest price I see for a 4TB hard drive right now, but keep in mind this is a low-power unit with a 5,400-RPM spindle speed. Cost per gigabyte: $0.04.

That's it for individual items. However, until midnight PT, Newegg is offering 10% off select memory and storage products with coupon code NAFSTORAGEJAN15R. The code can't be combined with other coupons or combo deals, and the maximum discount is $20, but it looks like you can apply the code to any hard drive, SSD, desktop memory, or notebook SO-DIMMs. Here are a few good candidates with their after-discount prices:

  • G.Skill's Ripjaw X Series 2 x 4GB DDR3-2400 memory for $71.99.
  • Crucial's Ballistx Sport XT 2 x 8GB DDR3-1866 memory for $121.49.
  • G.Skill's Ares Series 2 x 8GB DDR3-1866 memory for $130.49.
  • Samsung's 840 EVO 120GB SSD for $80.09.
  • Kingston's V300 120GB SSD for $80.99.
  • Seagate's 600 Series 240GB SSD for $152.99.

And now, the freebies. Steam's holiday sale may be over, but the service is offering free access to Company of Heroes 2 and Saint's Row IV until 1pm PT on Sunday. Both games are selling at a discount, too: Company of Heroes is 66% off, and Saint's Row is 50% off.

Finally, some love for gerbils north of the border. NCIX's Hi-Speed Sale Event has a few nice deals, including BitFenix's Prodigy enclosure for $59.99, a Toshiba 3TB, 7,200-RPM hard drive for $109.99, and a Kingston SSDNow V300 240GB SSD for $159.99. Despite the fact that the loonie has lost some of its value in recent weeks, those prices are all lower than at Newegg in the US.
