Hello there, folks! Do you happen to have a penchant for super-fast storage, like me? If that's the case, then you probably totally want to check out our review of Samsung's 970 EVO Plus. Spoiler alert: It's a darn good drive at an aggressive price. Go check out the review for more details. In the meantime, here's today's catch of hardware deals.
- Rakuten often runs sales on Adata gear, and today there's a juicy set on display. The first item is the Adata XPG SX8200 NVMe SSD. This is one speedy gumstick, and it's capable of pushing up to 3200 MB/s on sequential reads and 1700 MB/s on writes. As befits a fast NVMe drive, the random I/O figures are healthy and clock in at 310K IOPS on reads and 280K IOPS on writes. Rakuten will hand you a 960-GB SX8200 for a mere $157.24 with checkout code AD27. If you want a smaller drive, that's fine too—you can get the 480-GB SX8200 for $76.49 with checkout code AD13.
- Next up is the Adata SU800. This SATA drive is good for sequential reads up to 550 MB/s and writes up to 500 MB/s. It's a solid offering overall, and Rakuten will give you a 1-TB SU800 for just $99.44 with checkout code AD17. If you want to go bigger, you can pick up the 2-TB SU800 for $199.74 with promo code AD35.
- The final bit of Adata kit is the XPG Gammix D10 16-GB set of DIMMs clocked at 3000 MT/s. These sticks are speedy, solid, and will set you back just $88.39 at Rakuten with checkout code AD15. If you ever needed an excuse for a RAM upgrade or a new build, this kit right here is it.
- Everyone loves a large, colorful expanse of pixels, like that of the LG 32UD59-B. Its name is nigh on unreadable, but its list of specs is decidedly clear: a 3840×2160 VA panel with a color gamut that should cover 95% of the DCI-P3 color space, a 3000:1 contrast ratio, thin bezels, and FreeSync support. The price is currently set at $339.99 at Newegg with cart code EMCTUUD57. That's pretty crazy.
- A nice tablet is a handy item in every household, and the 2017 iPad Pro 10.5" is certainly one of the finest specimens of the breed. Its gorgeous 120-Hz display is the cause for many a dropped jaw, and the A10X Fusion chip inside makes for a buttery-smooth iOS experience. Grab one of these tablets with 64 GB of storage and Wi-Fi connectivity from Amazon for $499.99.
- The last item today is an HP Spectre x360 convertible, which historically are pretty darn good. They're sleek, solid, and well-designed, and today they're also on sale. The model we have here showcases a 13.3" 1920×1080 display and is powered by a Core i7-8550U processor coupled with 16 GB of RAM and a 256-GB NVMe SSD. The machine weighs only 2.8 lbs (1.26 kg) and is currently going for just $874.99 at Best Buy. Get it while it's hot.
