Thursday deals: big displays, Z370 mobos, and more


Good morning, dear gerbils. It's a really slow day today news-wise. For some reason, there's nothing currently going in the PC hardware world. But that's fine. This lull in the action is only a chance for online retailers to get buyer's attention, and we've collected the best deals for you today. Take a look.

  • We'll kick things off with a huge item: the Samsung C49HG90 49" curved display. This humongous VA monitor has a resolution of 3840x1080, which works out to a 32:9 aspect ratio. The backlight uses quantum-dot tech, and there's HDR support on tap. As if all that wasn't enough, the maximum refresh rate is a whopping 144 Hz, and the display has support for FreeSync 2. Last but by no means least, there's also a blur-reduction mode available. Grab this gigantic screen for only $899.99 from Newegg with the promo code EMCPERU49.

  • Since we're on the topic of displays, here's one of a different tack. The LG 27UD58P-B is 27" across and has an IPS panel with a resolution of 3840x2160. There's FreeSync support on tap, albeit with a narrow range from 48-60 Hz. The included stand has height, tilt, and swivel adjustments. You can get this cheap 4K display for only $299.99 from Newegg with the code EMCPERU36.

  • If you're considering building a Coffee Lake PC, we have just the ticket for you. Newegg is running a combo deal on an Intel Core i5-8600K coupled with a Z370 Aorus Ultra Gaming mobo. The board has two M.2 sockets, Type-C and Type-A USB 3.1 Gen 2 ports, multi-zone RGB LED lighting, and a Realtek ALC1220 audio codec coupled with WIMA capacitors. You can have both items for only $369.98 from Newegg, which works out to $60 off the regular prices.

  • If you'd rather pick out your own Z370 motherboard, you could do a lot worse than the Z370 Aorus Gaming 5. This board has Intel-powered Gigabit Ethernet and 802.11ac Wi-Fi. You get USB 3.1 Gen 2 ports in Type-A and Type-C flavors, metal-reinforced main PCIe and DIMM slots, and a ton of RGB LED lights. This board has three M.2 slots for good measure. You can have this mobo for $169.99 from Newegg, and you can get another $20 back by way of a mail-in rebate.

  • While we're usually leery of recommending plain-jane 2.1 speaker sets, that doesn't mean that there aren't a few quality pieces out there. One of the best examples is the Klipsch ProMedia 2.1 BT set. The subwoofer can push 65 W continuously, and the two-way satellite speakers can do 18 W apiece. That's enough power for serious volume and clarity. If the model name didn't tip you off, there's Bluetooth connectivity on tap along with regular 3.5-mm audio jacks. Get this set for only $99.99 from Best Buy.
