Hello, gerbils! It's a muted and dreary day outside, and it's actually a little comfortable to stay in where there's air conditioning and lots of games. Uh, right, and work. I almost forgot that I had deals to do, and here they are. I think you'll like today's selection.
- We're start our proceedings today with the biggest item—the Samsung H75-series 32" 4K monitor (LU32H750UMNXZA). This humongous display claims 10-bit color support, offers a static contrast ratio of 3000:1, and uses a quantum-dot backlight. The color gamut should cover 125% of the sRGB space, and the 4-ms response time can go down to 1-ms in the display's fast mode. Get this gorgeous screen for only $449.99 from Newegg with the code EMCXPRES3. Note: you have to be a Newegg newsletter subscriber to use this code. But the deals are worth it, trust us.
- The keyword of the day is "big," so we'll continue with the Seagate IronWolf NAS 8 TB hard drive. This speedy 7200-RPM drive has a generous 256 MB cache and NAS-optimized firwmare. You can grab one of these for $229.99 from Newegg with the promo code EMCPRES28 until February 15. Get'em while they're hot.
- If you prefer a chunk of really-fast storage that you can take with you, look no further than the Samsung T5 1-TB external SSD. This drive should be able to push up to 540 MB/s on reads and 515 MB/s on writes across its USB 3.1 Gen 2 interface. And despite the fact that the T5 1 TB pretty large for an SSD, it's physically silly-small at only 2.91" by 2.26" (7.4 cm x 5.7 cm). Newegg will hand one of these drives to you in exchange for $339.99 if you use the promotional code EMCPRES53.
- We've been
gripingtalking about the high price of system RAM these days, but promotional offers bring some reprieve. You can currently get a G.Skill Trident Z 16-GB kit with two 8-GB DIMMs clocked at 3000 MT/s for just $174.99 from Newegg. If you like your RAM with blinkenlights on, the Trident Z RGB set with the same specs can be had for $20 more at $194.99.
- Finally, if you want to get on the Coffee Lake CPU action but the high prices of Z370 mobos kept you at bay, take a good look at the Gigabyte Z370 HD3. This solid mobo has an Intel-powered Gigabit Ethernet controller, an M.2 slot, and should handle fast RAM up to 4000 MT/s. The Z370 HD3 is priced at Newegg at only $114.99, and there's a $15 rebate card on offer.
