So guys sales week is ending in 2 days and I wonder if u managed to find and purchase anything for a great deal ?

Here in UK the sales is complete poo and the only tech thing worthy buying I saw on Black Friday was Samsung Evo 860 SSD 500GB for £62 on lighting deal on amazon and I didnt buy it then so I am waiting for it to come back on last day of the sales. 

Scan, Aria, Overclockers dont have any good deal, its very sad year :(

Let me know what u got ! :P

Trying to get a mx500 250 gb for 40 euros here is pretty cheap too. Now I feel kinda bad for paying 120 euros for a 860 evo 500 gb and the crew 2

Don't feel bad, I paid 149,97$ CAD per 64GB SSD when I first built my PC... bought two of them, they were garbage.

 

Prices drops over time, it's normal.

There was no sale, just normal retail prices or higher put on display as sale ? lots of videos of people lifting the sale price lables to find the same or lower price under it

I spent $2500 on building my PC and all i do with it is play no games atm & watch anime at 1080p(finally) watch YT and write essays...

Builds:

The Toaster Project! Northern Bee!

 

The original LAN PC build log! (Old, dead and replaced by The Toaster Project & 5.0)

Yeah, the sales have sucked here in the UK. Amazon basically just seems to have a sale on their own stuff. 

 

I was hoping sales would come up for networking equipment as I have about £400 worth of upgrades I'm planning, but nothing that I want has been discounted. Oh well, lets hope they go down during the January sales.

It has .com so wasnt sure its purely UK, ofcourse I dont expect anyone outside UK to buy items here.

Yeah, I know. Tech always gets cheaper. The only part in my build that got more expensive is the 8600k, but that's about it

I got a Crucial MX500 250GB SSD for £37 on amazon. 

I selected standard free delivery and even though amazon said it'd be here on Friday 29th, it was here yesterday. I ordered it on Saturday 24th!

Only problem is I've fried my motherboard so I can't even use it :(

Prices in Sweden there if you're interested. Damn VPNs. 

 

I was looking for a couple of Ubiquiti devices, some are upgrades and some are replacements but everything is the same price. I think it's pretty much only consumer networking stuff that's discounted, like the M5 mesh type systems

My amazon deliveries were early too like wtf, I even got email saying item will arrive monday but delivery guy came same day I ordered the item so ofcourse i wasnt home, he even tried twice same day haha
Ebuyer has that SSd for £37 right now too with free delivery but I want samsung as my MX100 has some failed regions and BF4 game caused it to completely crash. So I am done with Crucial for now, had my Evo 840 since I built my PC in 2014 no problems.

Yeah, although ubiquiti is more prosumer, they don't get on sale that much. But the m5 is actually not bad. I use them in my partly concrete house and I still get around 350-400 mps with only 1 backboned

An amazon guy trying twice the same day is rare here. I've never had it happen to me.

Anyway you'll always pay a premium for Samsung SSDs as they are some of the best on the market.

You might have been unlucky. Crucial was and is a great company to buy from, but samsung is together with crucial and intel about the best you can get

I got prime for one week for £0.99 so maybe thats why the extra effort or he had same route back to the warehouse who knows. I wasnt home and couldnt leave a note so that sux. I personally cant say a single bad word about amazon, their deliveries are either on point or early for me (London).

I know thats why I only buy them on sale :D

Yep. I went to London in November 2017 and March 2018. I went to both South East London and Central London and I found that everything seemed better than the rest of the UK.

Totally unlucky but SSD still works, its only if I install BF4 it will always crash within a month. So game must be accessing same faulty data points on SSD or something about the SSD dislikingBF4. It hasnt crashed in like 4 months now still works fine with no other issues. Got BF5 on it now.
