NewEgg Canada: Save $60 on Kingston HyperX 240GB SSD (Just $180)

Get yo’ speed on. HyperX. $179.99. NewEgg Canada.

An SSD means speed. You get it so stuff runs faster and it certainly works. Pop it in your computer and load your OS on it and you cut boot times down by a huge margin. Been playing a certain game a lot lately? Load it on the SSD and your load times are cut down. It’s also great if you manipulate big files like video or images.

And if you’re going to go with a flash memory based method of storage, you can’t do much better than Kingston. Kingston has been one of the leading names in RAM and other forms of flash memory for a long time and they’re continuing that reputation with their SSDs.

I work with a guy who has had some big problems with another brand SSD and when he saw this he decided to pick it up (assuming out bonus comes in) and finally put an end to the ridiculous issues he has been having with the other brand.

It was $239.99 but you’re saving $60 so you get it for $179.99. You can also choose 120GB and 480GB which are on sale as well. Shipping is $6.99.

MemoryExpress Canada: Save on Kingston USB Drives & SD Cards

MemoryExpress Canada: Save on Kingston USB Drives & SD Cards

It’s always best to have a few of these hanging around but they can get pricey. MemoryExpress Canada and Kingston Canada are making it easier to get the memory you need.

There are fifteen items on sale and they range from $6 cheapo thumb drives to $500 USB 3.0 thumb drives. Here are a few of the items:

Out of the USB drives available, I think the 32GB USB 3.0 drive is the best deal. Even if you don’t have USB 3.0, it’s worth it to get a USB 3.0 drive. It’s futureproofing. Look at it this way. You could buy a USB 2.0 drive for $20 and save $10 now. But let’s say in a year you get a new computer and it has USB 3.0. To take advantage of the improvements that USB 3.0 offers, you need a USB 3.0 device. Buying a new 32GB USB 3.0 drive will cost you another $30. So even though you saved $10 now, you end up having to spend another $30 later.

If you aren’t sure if you have USB 3.0, you can figure it out very simply. Just look in your USB port. Is it blue? Yes? Then it’s likely USB 3.0.

The other thing here is the Micro SD cards. They have an 8GB and a 64GB version.I put the 8GB up there because I think most people only need an 8GB card. The 64GB, however, is a really good price at only $55, a savings of $10.

Shipping is about $5 or you can pick it up for free at a store.
