Four Samsung gaming monitors are 20% off at Amazon UK today

Amazon have kicked off some of their early Black Friday deals this week, and among them are a bunch of Samsung gaming monitors for 20% off. Two stand out in particular - their brand-new Odyssey G5, and their older CJG5 displays. Both come with 2560x1440 resolutions and 144Hz refresh rates, while the G5 adds in HDR and Freesync Premium to the mix. What's more, they're…

Best Buy’s Samsung SSD deals fill some important Prime Day gaps

If you're looking for a great SSD deal this Amazon Prime Day, you may be slightly disappointed with the selection available on Amazon US today. While there are a couple of stand-out hits, including a 2TB WD Blue 3D NAND for $176 (down from $230), it's not exactly as wide-ranging as the UK deals. Happily, other retailers are filling the gaps. I've already highlighted a…

Samsung’s 240Hz Odyssey G7 is probably the best gaming monitor deal of Amazon Prime Day

If there's one gaming monitor deal you should consider this Amazon Prime Day, it's the Samsung Odyssey G7. Down to £430 from its usual price of £550, this monitor has pretty much everything you could ask for. A 2560x1440 resolution, a 240Hz refresh rate, HDR support and it's fully certified as one of Nvidia's official G-Sync Compatible monitors, too.

Feature: A PCIe 4.0 SSD speed demon

Samsung 980 Pro review

Samsung's 980 Pro NVMe SSD is the company's first foray into the world of PCIe Gen 4, the new super fast storage standard that's set to become the baseline for all modern gaming PCs going forward. It's still relatively early days for PCIe 4.0 at the moment, though, and you do need a compatible motherboard to get the most from it. As a result, the…

Samsung’s 980 Pro SSD brings PCIe 4.0 speeds next month

The Samsung 980 Pro is official. Arriving in early October in 250GB, 500GB and 1TB size capacities (with a larger 2TB model due before the end of the year), Samsung's new NVMe SSD will be their first drive to support the new, super fast PCIe 4.0 standard, offering sequential read and write speeds up to a massive 7000MB/s and 5000MB/s respectively - provided you've got…

These 1440p Samsung monitors are back down to their Black Friday prices

It seems to be all go on Samsung deals this week, as Amazon have slashed the prices on two Samsung gaming monitors today as part of their wider Samsung sale event. Technically, they're different models of the same display, Samsung's CJG5. One is a curved 32in model, while the other is a curved 27in job, but the important thing is that both of these 144Hz,…

Feature: The best 1TB SSD just got even better

Samsung 870 Qvo review: the best that SATA SSDs have to offer

When Samsung launched their 860 Qvo SSD back at the end of 2018, it finally brought high capacity SSDs down to a more affordable price. Why was the 860 Qvo suddenly so much cheaper than the 860 Evo? Well, it was mostly down to the type of storage tech Samsung used inside the Qvo - what's known as 4-bit MLC (multi-level cell) V-NAND technology, as…

Samsung’s best SSDs are finally going cheap this week, with some returning to Black Friday prices

After last week's big sale on WD Black SSDs, this week's big SSD deals are all about Samsung. After weeks of prices inching higher and higher or just plain refusing to budge whatsoever, prices for Samsung's best SSDs have finally started to fall in the US. There are big discounts to be had on our current favourite, the 860 Evo, and their top-end 970 Evo…

Feature: That, and the fact it costs an absolute fortune

Samsung’s T7 Touch is great-looking external SSD let down by its fussy fingerprint reader

The Samsung T7 Touch is the latest member of Samsung's portable SSD family. Like the Samsung T5 before it, this titchy drive has a lovely, sleek aluminium chassis that's roughly the same size as a couple of stacked credit cards. Only now it has a fancy fingerprint reader for extra security and supports the nippier USB 3.2 Gen 2 standard, leading to sequential read and…

Feature: Taking a stand against desk-hogging monitors

Samsung’s Space monitor is a revelation

Why aren't more gaming monitors like the Samsung Space monitor? If there's one thing I've come to loathe about some of our jumbo best gaming monitor picks, it's their desk-hogging stands. Some monitors I tested last year practically demanded their own table, their stands were so enormous, while others barely left enough room for my keyboard and mouse mat. Not so with the Samsung Space.…

Samsung’s T5 SSD is already cheaper than it was over Black Friday

Oh lawd, I thought the deals were finally over, but those sneaky folks at Samsung have just gone and started another better-than-Black-Friday deal on their external Samsung T5 SSD. From now until December 25th in the UK, you can claim £90 cashback on the 2TB model of the T5, taking its usual price of £270 down to just £180 - which is a heck of…

Samsung SSD prices just keep on falling in Amazon’s Black Friday SSD deals

Happy Black Friday week fellow deals hunters, and boy do I have some fresh SSD deals for you this morning. Hot off the back of Amazon's pre-Black Friday sale at the beginning of last week, the Samsung 970 Evo Plus and the portable Samsung T5 SSD are now even cheaper than they were a couple of days ago. Plus, there are some very nice deals…

Samsung’s titanic CRG9 is an absolute unit, but there’s still, somehow, room in my heart for it

The Samsung CRG9 is easily the most preposterous gaming monitor I've ever laid eyes on. It's not the sheer size of it that boggles the mind. Oh no. A diagonal of 49in and an aspect ratio of 32:9 is nothing after last year's equally large and equally wide CHG90 monitor. It's the resolution of the damn thing, which stands at a mad 5120x1440. That's the…

Samsung’s 970 Evo Plus and portable T5 SSDs are real cheap right now

Update: Amazon US have just extended their Samsung SSD deals to include $100 off the 2TB Samsung 970 Evo Plus, taking it to an all-time low of $400, and $20 off the 1TB model, taking to another all-time low price of $150. Plus, there's currently $80 off the 2TB Samsung 860 Evo as well, bringing it once again to its lowest ever price of $230.Original…

I now refuse to play Red Dead Redemption 2 at anything less than 5120×1440

We all know Red Dead Redemption 2 is a gorgeous looking game (at least when it's not crashing and freezing), but holy moly does it look stupidly good in ultrawide. Specifically, the kind of ultrawide made possible by Samsung's new CRG9 monitor, which is an even higher specced version of last year's ludicrous 49in, 32:9 CHG90. Whereas the CHG90 had a resolution of 3840x1080 (making…

Get Ghost Recon Breakpoint for free when you buy a Samsung SSD

If you were thinking about upgrading your PC's storage banks any time soon, then you may want to consider getting a new Samsung SSD. Aside from the fact that they're some of the SSDs around, UK buyers can now get a free copy of Ghost Recon Breakpoint with it until November 13th 2019 when you buy selected models. Ironic, really, considering you spend so much…

Samsung 970 Evo Plus review: Better in every way?

The Samsung 970 Evo has been my under £200 SSD recommendation for quite some time now. By far the fastest and best value for money NVMe SSD you can buy right now, it's comfortably seen off competition from the new WD Black SN750, the old WD Black and Adata's XPG SX6000 Pro. But what happens when you take all that 970 Evo goodness and make…

Samsung 860 Qvo review: A fast, high-capacity SSD that’s excellent value

Black Friday and sales madness aside, high capacity SSDs still cost an absolute fortune. It's the main reason why so many of us still opt for small 250-500GB SSDs as our primary drive, and make do with larger, slower HDDs for storing big things like games and photos. Samsung's brand-new 860 Qvo, however, hopes to change all that by offering jumbo storage pockets at a…

Build a Black Friday PC: The best 1080p gaming PC for under $590

Black Friday is a brilliant time for upgrading your PC on the cheap, but arguably it's an even better time for first-time PC builders looking to assemble all the necessary parts for the lowest price possible. Now I've already cribbed together a PC for UK builders that can play Plunkbat and Battlefield V on max settings at 1080p for under £600, but for US builders…

Build a PC that runs Plunkbat and Battlefield V for £599 from these Black Friday deals

On this hallowed day o'deals that is Black Friday, I thought I'd take a small break from my epic deals hunting (all of which can be found in our jumbo Black Friday hub, by the way) to do something a bit more practical: tell you how to build a PC from the best Black Friday PC gaming deals that will run Plunkbat and Battlefield V…
