Opening up this thread for posting 2018 Black Friday deals from overseas stores as it seems common to have one and I wanted to post a deal but there's none yet. Thought it might be better to separate the foreign store deals from NZ ones if mods agree

This is from NewEgg's catalogue which was released a few days ago https://www.newegg.com/promotions/nepro/18-3230/index.html#p=12 :

 

Intel 660p Series M.2 2280 2TB PCI-Express 3.0 x4 3D NAND Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) SSDPEKNW020T8X1 - US$249.99 (~NZ$375)

 

Intel 660p Series M.2 2280 512GB PCI-Express 3.0 x4 3D NAND Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) SSDPEKNW512G8XT - US$74.99 (~NZ$112.50)

 

No 1TB as the price isn't listed in their catalogue but it could also be discounted.

 

Shipping will probably be about NZ$17.50 for one based on current charges.

 

I'm not certain they will ship to NZ or they will offer it as the same price, although they currently do. (And I believe NewEgg can be difficult with YouShop if they don't.) The exchange rates are based on current NewEgg rates. The 2TB is quite borderline to the NZ$60 tax due threshold (NZ$400 for items without duty) so depending on the precise exchange rate, it could be hit.

 

I'm not certain of the starting time, the ad simply says 11/22 for this specific deal. The general sale starts at 9am 19th but since the 22nd is Thanksgiving it may be late in the evening that it will start. I suggest you keep an eye out from 9pm on the 22nd as that's probably the earliest it could start being midnight PT. Comments on SlickDeals seem to agree the 2TB is a good deal and could sell out fast.

I forgot to mention but one thing which isn't in the description copied from NewEgg is that these use QLC NAND with all the performance and longevity implications there of. So they will perform worse than a hard disk in some situations, although in many areas will be at least one order of magnitude better & also significantly better than any SATA SSD.

3 months of Kindle unlimited for $1.99, only on Amazon Australia but it is easy to swap your digital account between countries.





Common sense is not as common as you think.

So not international, and more Cyber Monday, but something tells me @michaelmurfy's bank account might be about to take a hit:

I got thisa few years ago. It's very slow. For desktop only. But yeah ...

Any lifetime mobile device storage? I keep looking at gcloud but they never give out lifetime purchases.




Swype on iOS is detrimental to accurate typing. Apologies in advance.

You'll pay 15% + IETF + biosecurity + customs broker fees if it's over the threshold. The extra fees really sting if you're around the threshold point.

Seagate 8tb harddrive for $129USD, comes to $217NZD inc shipping. 

 

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01HAPGEIE/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER&psc=1

 

 

 

This might be the cheapest price ever for this drive? Buying locally is around $400NZD, so a big saving. 

 

 

 

You can remove the internal drive too, standard sata connector.    But, I've found sustained write speeds start at around 150MB/s, but that drops significantly after a while to around 40MB/s. Read speeds are always fast.
