Hello, gerbils! It's a difficult morning here at TR HQ. Yesterday's industry announcements were a perfect one-two punch combo to our collective jaws, and we're still picking them up off the floor. Perhaps in an aftershock of sorts after those bombshells, there's a dearth of news for the time being. That's a perfect opportunity for us to show you the hardware deals we found. Today's harvest is bountiful, so get right to shoppin'.
- You might be jonesing for high-refresh-rate or 4K gaming. If that's the case, the folks at Newegg have just the necessary potion for that particular ailment. The e-tailer is running a 10%-off sale on monitors with the code EMCBBRK36, and there are some quality pieces on display. There are options aplenty, but we'd like to draw your attention towards a separate Newegg Flash sale on the Nixeus EDG 27" monitor. This IPS display has a 2560x1440 resolution, a happy medium between plain ol' 1920x1080 and GPU-hammering 4K. The maximum refresh rate is 144 Hz, and there's FreeSync support on tap. Couple these characteristics with an adjustable stand, and you have yourself a nearly-ideal monitor for $399.99 while stocks last.
- Monitors aren't the only thing on sale at Newegg, though. There's also a tasty promotion running on a selection of SSDs at a 10% discount with the promo code EMCBBRK23. NAND prices have been riding high, but you can find the TR-favorite Samsung EVO 850 1 TB solid-state drive for $269.99 with that discount code. On the off chance that you're looking for a seriously-sizable chunk of flash, the Western Digital Blue 3D NAND 2 TB drive is currently going for $530.99 with the promo code. Can't get much better than that.
- Wait, what's this? This time, it's Best Buy that's running a massive sale on Logitech gaming gear. There's a total of 45 items on offer, but our highlights include the Logitech G502 Proteus Core mouse for $29.99, the Logitech G910 Orion Spectrum RGB mechanical keyboard for $89.99, and the Logitech G933 Artemis Spectrum headset for $99.99 in both black and white finishes. If you're a simulation fan, you might also be positively drooling at the prospect of grabbing a Logitech G29 Driving Force set of steering wheel and pedals for an absurdly-low $199.99.
- If you're hunting for a deal on AMD's desktop CPUs, we have you covered. The eight-core Ryzen 7 1700 is selling for $284.99 at Newegg with its included Wraith Spire cooler. Meanwhile, the quad-core Ryzen 5 1500X (also with a Wraith Spire) can be had for $154.99 at Amazon. Either option is a perfect fit for that build you've been putting off.
- Lastly, a portable item. The Surface Pro 2017 is sleek, speedy, and has a gorgeous screen and top-notch build quality. It's also usually a little dear, but not today. Best Buy is offering the Surface Pro 2017 with a Core m3 CPU, 4 GB of RAM, 128 GB of storage and an included Type Cover in black for the low amount of $629. The convertible alone would usually cost you around $700, so this is a fantastic combo deal for anyone looking for a high-quality ultraportable.
