Best Deals on Tech and PC Hardware

Nothing makes you feel better than finding a great deal in the sea of offers during this time. That is why we are always on the hunt for sales across the internet.

Whether you're building a PC, craving an upgrade, looking for one of the best gaming PCs, or just hoping to find one of the best gaming monitors on a big sale, we're here to help you sift through the discounts up for grabs across these two big days.

To make saving simpler, we're rounding up the very best deals on tech and hardware below, from components like CPUs and SSDs to peripherals to prebuilt desktops and even gadgets.

Be sure to check back often, as we're constantly updating this page. If your deal targets are more narrow, see our dedicated pages on the best monitor deals, best SSD deals or best gaming PC and laptop deals.

How to Tell a Deal from a Dud

We've checked all the best tech deals below to ensure they provide valuable savings and notable discounts. But what if you see a product on sale and are wondering if it's really worth pulling the trigger?

The best advice we can give is this: don't fall for the urgency message Amazon uses to drive these deals. Of course, any sale is a good thing, but Prime Day isn't just about one retailer — other brands will get involved and cut their own prices too. Shop around before settling.

We always recommend using third-party tools to both check previous prices and compare them with different sellers. Google Shopping and PCPartPicker are two of our favorite applications to check prices between vendors.

Amazon shoppers can use the website CamelCamelCamel and its Camelizer Chrome extension to see a product's price history. This will give you an idea of the average price and whether or not the current offer is an actual deal.

    Those are terrible "deals". $10 off or so is not a bargain. I mean, it beats a sharp stick in the eye, but for a special sale day, not too impressed.

    The only good deals I've seen are:

    Samsung 970 Evo Plus 2TB for $300, though B&H Photo has the better deal as they give tax back on their store card, which can be higher than the 5% Amazon gives on theirs.

    Samsung 870 QVO 4TB at Amazon has a 25% cash back total offer, bringing it down to $337.50, or $84/TB.

    WD Red Plus 10TB NAS HDD for $189 at Newegg.

    Nintendo, XBOX, and Playstation cash cards 25% cash back total at Amazon today.

    Otherwise it's all pretty mediocre so far.

    Yeah, I don't see many good deals at all. Not great deals on Newegg, either.

    What a waste of time this has been.

    I don't know why you guys are so down on this stuff. These are some pretty decent deals for people who would enjoy several-dollar discounts on obsolete clearance items, paying half off an "original price" that is double msrp, paying a subscription fee to use physical spyware built by a company that explicitly pays people to review private recordings taken from always-on microphones and cameras... And don't even get me started on that awesome Razer stereo headset that is physically incapable of playing 7.1 sound.

    My point is the $120 SSD I was going to buy regardless is $4 cheaper today than it was 2 weeks ago, and $7 cheaper than it was 2 months ago. So this is the first time ever I've bought anything on Prime day. I'm very thrilled to be getting a "64% off original price" prime day exclusive deal ™

    A couple of good deals like the Logitech keyboard and the Samsung 970 evo plus but other than that it looks like regular discounts. Black Friday scam strikes again.
