Bargain basement: a 32″, 144-Hz LG 32GK650F-B monitor for $310, and much more

  • It’s a big sale today, both literally and figuratively. Our leading deal is an LG 32GK650F-B display, measuring 32″ across and placing 2560×1440 pixels on its VA panel. The static contrast ratio is 3000:1, the refresh rate is a speedy 144 Hz, and there’s a blur-reduction mode and FreeSync support on tap. The stand has height, tilt, swivel, and pivot adjustments, and the price tag reads just $309.99 at Newegg.

  • It’s time to talk storage, and the first speaker of the day is the Western Digital EasyStore 8 TB. This simple drive does its job with aplomb and no fuss, and even comes with included backup software. Pick one up for only $129.99 from Best Buy if you join My Best Buy (free registration). That works out to $16.25 a terabyte.

  • Lately, it’s not a matter of whether the Intel 660p 1 TB NVMe drive will be on sale, rather, but rather, for how much. This drive can do 1800 MB/s in sequential reads and writes, and its random I/O figures ring in at 150K IOPS for reads and 220K IOPS when writing. The price tag currently reads just $87.99 at Newegg with the cart code EMCTBUD23. If you’re looking for a faster drive, then your huckleberry’s the HP EX920 1 TB. This model can do 3200 MB/s reading and 1800 MB/s writing, and is priced at 104.99 at Newegg.

  • Look who’s back. Apple must really be feeling a sales pinch, as it seems that not a day goes by without a sale on some iDevice. Today’s entrant is the iPad 2018 (latest model) with 128 GB of storage and Wi-Fi connectivity. This sleek metal machine contains an Apple A10 Fusion SoC with four cores (2+2) ticking away and a PowerVR Series 7 XT Plus IGP. The colorful display has a resolution of 2048×1536, and there’s 2 GB on tap, as well as a 8827 mAh battery. Grab one of these for only $299.99 from Best Buy if you sign up (free) to be a My Best Buy member.

  • The first laptop on hand is a mighty gaming machine. The sleek-looking Asus ROG Zephyrus (GA502DU-BR7N6) is quite pretty in yours truly’s opinion, and it’s powered by a four-core, eight-thread AMD Ryzen 7 3750H processor sitting next to 16 GB of RAM. Graphics horsepower comes by way of a cool ‘n’ quiet Nvidia GTX 1660 Ti Max-Q graphics card that slaps pixels onto the 120 Hz 1920×1080 IPS display. There’s a generously sized 512 GB NVMe SSD for storage. The asking price for the whole caboodle is just $1049.99 at Best Buy.

  • The last item and second portable is the Lenovo IdeaPad 730S (81JB000AUS). This machine’s aluminum jib is of a cut above most laptops, and inside it sits a Core i7-8565U processor next to 16 GB of RAM and a 256 GB solid-state drive. The 11.9 mm chassis frames a 1920×1080 display and holds a battery that should be good for 10 hours of usage. The whole thing weighs just 2.43 lbs (1.1 kg) on your hands, and $754.02 on your wallet when ordered from Rakutenwith the checkout code SAVE15.

[quote<]$309.99[/quote<] Okay, clearly that's just for the stand. How much for the monitor?

I know, right? I’ve had a ton of PC-related expenditures in the last month but that one’s got me like “hmmmm…..”

This sale brings that LG monitor down to the same price as the Pixio PX329. Buy one of each, Ben, and let us know how they compare.

Yeah I’ll do that with all my spare cash. 😆

Good news is that I have no reason to rush to buy now.

I just bought one of these for my g/f (who games way more than I do these days!) and it was an excellent purchase. It’s a ton of screen and features for the price. She told me that she only needed a 27-inch monitor, but I honestly couldn’t find one with all the same inputs and features (including a non-TN panel) at a better price, so I just bought her this one. Since she doesn’t have a TV and she also watches Netflix on it from her couch, this turned out to be a really good decision – and she’s… Read more »

That only gets you 30% of the stand, which means you get the shipping carton, documentation and customer service.

The stand itself costs another $689.00

Oh, c’mon, it’s not that outrageous.

They also give you the power cord.
