Some reversals are just fantastically great to watch. Much like any of Jean-Claude Van Damme's characters in his '80s movies (complete with a 10-time repeat of a roundhouse kick), prices for solid-state drives have bounced back from the depths of unattainability and into the limelight. We can foresee gerbils upgrading and buying rigs left and right. Along with SSDs, here's today's selection of deals.
- We kick things off today with the Adata XPG SX8200 480-GB NVMe drive. This unit has popped up in deals posts more than once, and we're happy to see it back. Its 3200 MB/s sequential read and 1700 MB/s sequential write speeds are quite healthy and helped earn this drive a TR Recommended award. You can get it today for $93.49 from Rakuten with the checkout code AD16.
- There's a chance that 480 GB might not be enough NVMe flash for you. How about the HP EX920 1-TB drive? This non-assuming stick o' bytes should be good for 3200 MB/s sequential reads and 1800 MB/s writes. Get this unit today for $199.99 from Rakuten with the checkout code PLM35.
- System memory is another formerly high-value item whose price tags have tanked. The G.Skill Aegis 8-GB DIMM clocked at 3000 MT/s is a quality piece with lifetime warranty that's available for $57.99 at Newegg. Get two of these for a 16-GB dual-channel setup and you're good to go with high-speed memory for just $115.98.
- Quality displays are plentiful these days, too. The LG 27UD58P-B is a straightforward, quality 27" IPS monitor with a resolution of 3840×2160 and support for FreeSync. The contrast ratio is 1000:1, and the response time is 5 ms. The stand has height, tilt, swivel, and pivot adjustments, too. You can get this pixel slab for just $259.99 from Newegg with the cart code EMCEPPR34. We really have it too good these days.
- If you want a bigger, faster monitor, then check out the MSI Optix AG32CQ. We reckon this puppy checks pretty much every box. You get a 2560×1440 VA panel with a fantastic 3000:1 contrast ratio, a 144-Hz response time, and a 1-ms MPRT. MSI says that the monitor's color gamut should cover 110% of the sRGB space, too. This display's going for $399.99 from Newegg after the cart code EMCEPPR38. There's another $20 dangling off a rebate card, too.
- Any self-respecting gerbil appreciates a quality enclosure, like the Antec P110 Luce. We looked at this case a while back, deemed it a return to form for Antec, and slapped a TR Editor's Choice award on it. The chassis comes with a built-in RGB LED controller, an integrated graphics card bracket, and an HDMI pass-through port for VR headsets. Get it for $84.99 from Newegg, and you can shave another $20 off if you take advantage of a rebate offer.
