Deal of the week: A 23'' Dell IPS display for $150
After more than a week of Black Friday-inspired sales, the deals scene has quieted down some. There are still some nice discounts on PC hardware, though. Here are the ones that stood out to me this morning:
- Looking for an affordable IPS monitor? Dell's 23" P2314H is on sale at Newegg for only $149.99 with promo code EMCWHPE23. This 1080p unit has an adjustable stand, a VESA-compatible mount, an integrated USB 2.0 hub, and a trio of video inputs that includes DVI and DisplayPort. The panel specs aren't anything to write home about—250 cd/m² brightness, 1000:1 contrast, and 8-ms response—but the user reviews are overwhelmingly positive. Looks like a nice entry-level monitor.
- Even during the lulls, there are always discounted SSDs. Crucial's M500 240GB is down to just $79.99 at TigerDirect with coupon code HMK149134. Cost per gig: a mere $0.33. The M500 is a little older, and the 240GB version definitely isn't the fastest SSD around, but it's still a huge improvement over mechanical storage.
- Noctua gear is usually pretty pricey, but Newegg has the firm's NF-P12-1300 fans on sale right now. The three-pin, 120-mm spinners are marked down to $16.99 with promo code EMCWHPE53. The fans are covered by a six-year warranty, and they come with a couple of resistor-based adapters that lower the rotational speed. Impressively, 85% of Newegg reviews give these a five-star rating.
- Need some RAM? TigerDirect is selling a pair of Adata's XPG DDR3-1600 4GB memory sticks for $64.99, while Newegg has a similar Mushkin duo listed at the same price. Both offerings have 9-9-9-24 timings, 1.5V voltage settings, and normal-sized heat spreaders. Take your pick.
Those are the deals that caught my eye, but I probably missed a few. Feel free to add any deals you spot in the comments below.
