Another day another SSD deal. Don't get me wrong though, I'm certainly not complaining as deals are my favorite pastime. But it's as if SSDs in particular seem to lower their prices almost every day recently, in a bid to outdo the competition, which is fantastic news for us PC hardware consumers.

I can always take more storage (M.2 slots allowing), as I'm constantly finding myself uninstalling and reinstalling games on my gaming PC, and even though in the past I could have had a huge HDD, they just don't cut it for gaming. So when I see a deal like this Nextorage Japan 4TB SSD with heatsink for $289 my wallet starts to twitch a little. Not only has the price of this large 4TB SSD dropped in price significantly, but it's also one of the fastest Gen 4 SSDs on the market and will go nicely in a gaming PC or a PlayStation 5 console too as one of the best SSDs for the PS5.

One of Lenovo's flagship gaming laptops has a slight price reduction thanks to a promotional offer when you use coupon code GAMINGDEALS at checkout. This absolute beast packs an RTX 4090 laptop GPU, Intel Core i9-13900HX CPU, 32GB of 5600MHz DDR5 RAM, and a 2TB SSD in the Legion Pro 7i Gen 8 for $3,239. With these specs, this laptop might be a contender for the best gaming laptop

Another gaming laptop deal that won't wipe out your bank account is this 14-inch Acer Predator Triton 300 SE for $999 which packs an Intel Core i7-12700H CPU and an RTX 3060 GPU. Still capable of playing the latest games on medium to high settings, this 14-inch model is a more portable gaming machine.

    Uffda, man... do I really need all that speed for gaming, though? I'm sitting on a Gen 3 PCIe SSD and I think that's perfectly fine for the likes of The Witcher 3, or CoD: MWII. I think $289 is too rich for my blood, especially when you consider options from Silicon Power, which can give you 2 TB of Gen 3 speeds for just $80.

    i've been waiting for the 4 TB drives to drop like the 1 and 2 TB models have. this is a good start.

    i'm not looking at speed, but just reliability and the extra space. it's crazy how easily i am filling up a 2 TB drive. and it's not movies and music. it's ...well... i'm not sure what it all is but dang i must have installed everything i ever had ever on that drive to fill it up.

    *lights the candle* hi i'm math geek and i'm addicted to storage space :)

    For those willing to run a U.2 drive, you can get an even better PCIe 4.0 drive for a little more money. I just found Provantage is selling the 3.84 TB Solidigm D7-P5520 for $311!
    https://www.provantage.com/solidigm-ssdpf2kx038t1n1~7SLDG02U.htm
    Here, you can see what makes this drive so special:
    https://www.storagereview.com/review/solidigm-p5520-maintains-lead-in-enterprise-workloads
    Endurance is rated at 7 PBW.

    I was about to buy one of these on ebay, for $355! Not only is Provantage's price cheaper, but since they're an authorized reseller, you get the full manufacturer's 5 year warranty!

    Windows can sometimes fill up a drive with random logfiles. I saw this happen on a Windows 7 machine, years ago. I used a tool called SpaceMonger to find out what was using up all my free space.

    i've been using this for a while now to explore what is where.

    just need to stop and take a few minutes to figure out what folders are taking up the space. mostly it's just a ton of programs. but i'm sure some log files and other similar files are part of it.

    i install stuff all the time and don't often delete it if i don't use it. i'm sure there's more than a few GB worth of stuff i don't use i can delete. but then i won't has as much of an excuse to buy some 4 tb drives as the prices drop :)

    Single file abberations are easy to spot.

    While 4TB in a new Mac Studio or Pro is a $1000 build-to-order upgrade.
    Sorry Tim, but the days of milking this cash cow are over.

    SpaceMonger is the only tool I've seen which offers a 2D hierarchical view of your disk space:

    I actually paid the $15 license fee, when I needed to use it to find those logfiles hogging my disk space. While I was trying to verify its proper owner, to make sure my copy was fully legit (it turns out StarDock indeed bought the rights to it), I ran across a blog entry by its author, describing the algorithm he devised for the 2D tree view:
