This.
If you're from my country the savings are roughly 0%.

Couldn't tell you. We have black friday and some other mostly American in name-only 'traditions' the people who run the shopping businesses, I assume, brought to DK, but like I wrote, in name only, because you don't save anything. At best it's maybe 5-ish percent(don't quote me on that because I only check for the things that interest me or I need.), at worst you get outright conned.
It's gotten progressively worse over the years with them also trying to see if you've even checked the price history, so they basically JUST slap 'sale' on it, and try to sell it at basically the same price.

I can't for the life of me take it seriously, so I steer clear of all of that nonsense, if I must shop I do it online, and I find a place with a reasonable price and pay it.

America is becoming a country that can no longer question itself, invest in the public good or imagine a future beyond the dreamscapes of the rich and ruling elite. Apocalyptic fears, uncertainties and anxieties feed a rising tsunami of violence that has become the organizing principle of governance, everyday life and society itself. American society is caught in the daily routines of lies, corruption and manufactured ignorance; one consequence is the withering of individual and social agency along with civic culture and the public imagination. American optimism has turned bleak. In the age of gangster capitalism, people lose their interconnections, community and sense of security. Isolation and anxiety gives way to mass depression and is ripe for expressions of rage and hatred. The guard rails of justice, compassion, the welfare state, politics, democratic values and the institutions that nourish them are under threat of disappearing. Apocalyptic terrors have moved from the realm of fiction into the social fabric of everyday life. - Henry Giroux 2023-03-05

Adding to the list, maybe Polk ES20 @ ~200 ish, even though we damn well know they're really only worth $150, historic low for previous S20 series was ~$150.

Another 10-14TB drive, whatever my son wants for christmas, and a Timing Belt/Waterpump service for my '02 4Runner.  I would love to update my GPU in my rig, but we'll see how the live benchmarks of AMD's offerings fare as I think they will trade punches with the over-priced 4080.

Signed up for another free Amazon Prime "trial" and the microSD cards look cheap - probably because I haven't looked to buy one for years!  How much should a decent (100mbps+) 256 or 512GB one cost?

Not close on the pro plus, there's an evo select in an attractive blue (not sure about the taped seams or hood - it's not a tent or a coat!) or a cheaper Sandisk that would get confused with a 128gb I already own.

Yeah everything costs more here, politicians with enough money to make gambling the country's reputation by threatening changes a good idea and 20% VAT don't help!  Any thoughts on the budget Samsung?  It's not going to have a hard life, will be used in a music player so way more reads than writes.

I might pick up a few Switch games or some supplements IF they are 40% or more off. I don't go for any sale unless it's 40% or more.
And don't try that inflate price prior to sale to make it look like a deal, cause I always check.

Samsung is very reliable even its budget version.

The main problem "of late" has been counterfeits.  On the more expensive cards, you test it with i/o and the fakes would never hit the target,  but on the counterfeit cheap ones it's a little harder to tell.

For an mp3 player though, you should be fine.

This has always been a problem with the expensive cards and USB sticks, you pay for 64GB and decent speed and land up with a really slow 8GB with a fake partition table if you're lucky.  Are you saying they now fake the budget versions too?  I test any new flash storage with h2testw so not going to get scammed, unless it's by an Amazon raise-the price then "sale".  Guess I should put in some effort to gauge UK prices...

have read forum posts saying i/o test is the only reliable test.  they're getting pretty crafty.

I mean, just buy it,  test it, if it's fast, it's genuine.

I normally stick with getting Samsung media, but I tend to pick up in person at a retailer so there is a lower chance of getting a non-genuine product.

For 25 years the MicroCenter in Marietta was where I bought all my computer gear except for keyboards (and even then, I got my Teensys there). It is the best store I have ever shopped for anything.

Even after I moved away, I still order pretty much everything online from MicroCenter.

Is this a good deal if Tp4 buys 2x of these for stereo use? 63$ each

it's 2x 4" driver, 1 tweet, for wide dispersion... and it's ported reaches 50hz , sub takes care of the rest,  and it's way cheaper than the $240 elac B62s.

Those look pretty decent.
2 speakers, 2 ears, but 1000s of ways to shuffle them around.

HDD DEAL


NEWEGG,   18 tb  WD RED PRO 7200rpm drive for $254,,  285   -11% zip11 code, must use zip checkout,  it's 4 month billing, but you can go into their site and pay it off right away.   no hit to credit, it's a soft pull.

Don't think it'll get much cheaper than this,  this is $14.09 per TB,   General BF HDD deal is $200 for 14tb external, is 14.28 $ per TB.

Red PRO has 5 years warranty and internal. no shucking required.

There are a lot of them!  Considering getting my first M.2 though my motherboard can't use it to potential and I don't need the speed, plus SATA definitely wouldn't burn up and can be used to boot other systems without removing my mobo.

Yeah that is a great deal for a great drive! I almost bit on it, but went with the SK Hynix P41 platinum 2TB for $169.99 off Amazon. After some research these are basically the best NVME SSD available right now & they don't go on sale too often. My hope is that games start to use direct storage more in the next year, cause that is my main reason going with such a high performance drive, otherwise the deal you pointed out is a much better one.

I was going back & forth between M.2 & SATA myself. I ended up biting on a M.2 cause like I said before I'm hoping direct storage will finally start to get used by game devs in the next couple years. If your mobo will take M.2 NVME SSDs I seen a bunch of gen 3 ones for better pricing than their SATA counterparts. Although if you don't need the speed I agree with you that SATA drives are more versatile.

Mobo is a Z97, it has an M.2 on the back and that's as far as I looked when installing it with the SATA from my old rig (Linux - plug it in and it doesn't notice anything changed )  I'll have to do some research, if it can handle the latest and greatest just slowly that would give me a future-proofed drive though I've not seen anyone drop the SATA ports yet.

^  Will I even notice while doing something most people do on a phone?  I think not, so I should be looking for a big SSD so I can play music at home without hearing my spinner spin up rather than a boot drive.

But if I retire my portable wav player and just keep the flac copy of my music library a 500GB drive is more than enough and I could put the savings towards a new player.  If only there was one with buttons that could play for a 12 hour shift plus traveling time but sadly it seems the only player that fits my requirements is the one I have that's dying and is over $3500 to replace; seems Black Friday doesn't exist for the crazy German designer.

z97 era, not all m.2 ports did the same thing. so make sure you double check if you go that route.

The very authoritative sounding manual has this to say:
Quote from: Asus
- 1 x M.2 Socket 3 with M Key, type 2260/2280 devices support (both SATA and PCIe mode)
- Supports Intel Smart Response Technology, Intel Rapid Start Technology, and Intel Smart Connect Technology*
* These functions will work depending on the CPU installed
and
Quote from: Asus
M.2 Support
This motherboard features the M.2 slot, which shares bandwidth with PCI Express x2 slot to speed up data transfer up to 10 Gb/s.
Which is great as it's an itx board so only has a single x16 slot...

As I understand it NVME is just a fancy way of saying "PCIe mode" so any drive should work.

I just ordered a full-size GMMK for $93cdn to take to work. I tried selling the wife on a 2nd GMMK but she hasn't bit yet. She wants a full-size Ducky One 3 Fuji with browns to take to work as her blues are too noisy in the office (pfff), but that's a special order and double the price of another GMMK.

Other than that, I'll pick up some filament and maybe an upgrade from my fav 3d print supplier. I was meaning to build an order anyway to hit their MOQ for free shipping.
Currently GMMK Pro: lubed 68g U4T, FR4 plate, extra gaskets, etc

I was sent a bunch of makeup I didn't order. Like $120 worth of makeup. What do I do with this ****?
No point in returning it since I didn't pay for it, but I also have zero use for this amount of blush.  :-[

HDD DEAL


NEWEGG,   18 tb  WD RED PRO 7200rpm drive for $254,,  285   -11% zip11 code, must use zip checkout,  it's 4 month billing, but you can go into their site and pay it off right away.   no hit to credit, it's a soft pull.

2 drive limit.

Don't think it'll get much cheaper than this,  this is $14.09 per TB,   General BF HDD deal is $200 for 14tb external, is 14.28 $ per TB.

Red PRO has 5 years warranty and internal. no shucking required.

IMO not a good deal, they regularly go on-sale for that range.  There was a deal on a IronWolf 20TB but at $339.99 (NewEgg) for Cyber Monday.
I just want a 12-18TB in the $100-150 range - where they should be since I can find 2TB SSD's in the $100-130 range.

10kg of peanut butter


That's a lot of peanut butter.
America is becoming a country that can no longer question itself, invest in the public good or imagine a future beyond the dreamscapes of the rich and ruling elite. Apocalyptic fears, uncertainties and anxieties feed a rising tsunami of violence that has become the organizing principle of governance, everyday life and society itself. American society is caught in the daily routines of lies, corruption and manufactured ignorance; one consequence is the withering of individual and social agency along with civic culture and the public imagination. American optimism has turned bleak. In the age of gangster capitalism, people lose their interconnections, community and sense of security. Isolation and anxiety gives way to mass depression and is ripe for expressions of rage and hatred. The guard rails of justice, compassion, the welfare state, politics, democratic values and the institutions that nourish them are under threat of disappearing. Apocalyptic terrors have moved from the realm of fiction into the social fabric of everyday life. - Henry Giroux 2023-03-05
