Deal of the week: Discounted storage and a PSU bargain
We've got a nice collection of storage bargains for this week's deal post—and a sizable discount on a power supply, too, to mix things up a little:
- Crucial's M500 240GB solid-state drive is available for $129.99 at Newegg. That's pretty darn cheap—heck, some 128GB SSDs, like Samsung's 840 Pro, sell for not much less than that. The M500 isn't as fast as the 840 Pro, but it's still an SSD, and it's still vastly faster than mechanical storage.
- Also in the storage department, Newegg has a promo that nudges WD's Red 3TB hard drive down from $132.99 to $124.99. Just enter EMCPHPC23 on the checkout page. Cheaper 3TB options turn up occasionally, but this particular one is tuned for network-attached storage and has a three-year warranty.
- Need even more storage capacity? WD's Green 4TB hard drive is $169.99. This model lacks NAS tweaks and only has a two-year warranty, but if you're just sticking it inside a regular desktop build, then it's hard to argue with 4TB inside of a single 3.5" drive... especially at that price.
- Last, but not least, Rosewill's Capstone 550W power supply is on sale for $49.99 after a $20 mail-in rebate. This is an 80 Plus Gold-certified unit with a beefy 12V rail, a 140-mm cooling fan, and a seven-year warranty. The Newegg reviews seem quite positive, too, with 72% of them awarding the unit a five-star rating. You could do a lot worse for 50 bucks.
North of the border, NCIX's Olympic-themed Go-For-Gold Sale Event is in full swing. Deals include a 240GB Kingston SSDNow V300 solid-state drive for $149.98 CAD, that same 4TB WD Green for $179.99, and many others.
