If you are planning to build your own PC from parts or buy peripherals/networking devices, this is a great deal to have.
The free 3-day shipping and free returns are nice.

- Brother Laser Printer and Toner for $95
Brother HL-L2340DW Monochrome Laser Printer with duplex (2-sided printing) and wifi.
It normally sells for about $100.
Newegg is selling this printer with an additional toner cartridge for $95 for both.
The printer includes a "starter" cartridge capable of printing about 500 pages.
The bundle also includes a "standard" cartridge capable of printing about 1,200 pages.
This printer has built-in Wifi for printing from any computer or device on your network.
It does not have an ethernet (wired) network port.
- Portable 2TB USB Drive $70
Seagate Backup Plus Slim 2TB Portable USB3.0 Drive for $80, and code ESCENFJ39 applies $10 off.
Normally sells for $80.
Powers itself through the included USB data cable, so no need to carry a separate power cable.
Most reviews are positive, though some people reported bad drives.
Newegg offers a 30-day refund/replacement warranty, and Seagate offers a 2 year replacement warranty.
Data losses caused by faulty drives are extremely frustrating experiences, so we suggest doing backups (data copied to 2 or more places) rather than relying on a single drive to store your important data.
- Cyberpower 1350VA Pure Sine Wave UPS $128 (expired)
Cyberpower 1350VA Pure Sine Wave UPS for $128 today.
This and other similar model UPSs normally sell for around $155.
We have two of the Cyberpower Pure Sine Wave UPSs, and believe they are some of the best UPSs for office use.
Computers, especially hard drives, rely on constant, clean power to function safely, and can be harmed when power spikes, brown-outs, or power failures occur.
This is a good device to protect a computer and monitor from such power damage, and can also give battery time to your network gear and wifi router.
This pure sine wave model should help protect better than a regular UPS, as shown in this video.
Newegg is selling a SanDisk X400 512GB Solid State Drive for $120 through their Ebay store.
Normally $135 to $145.

- Seagate 8TB Hard Drive $280 (expired)
$340 with free shipping, and code EMCENEL22 applies $60 off.
Unlike the "Archive" model which is designed for backups and performs slow, this drive has good read/write speeds.

- Refurbished Seagate 4TB External Hard Drive for $69 (expired: sold out)
Newegg is selling a refurbished (not new) Seagate Backup Plus 4TB External/Desktop USB Hard Drive for $69 with free shipping.
Normally $100 refurbished and $110 new.
Inside is a refurbished 4TB hard drive which would normally sell by itself for at least $90.
If you want an internal 4TB hard drive, you could use a screwdriver to remove the drive from its case.
Hard drives make relatively cheap backup devices when plugged in to a computer via a hard drive docking station.
- Cyberpower 8-Outlet Surge Protector $13
At 11.5x7.3 inches, it's fairly big.
It has positive reviews and Cyberpower does make high quality products.
- Portable 4TB USB3.0 Hard Drive for $100
Newegg is selling a Seagate 4TB Expansion Portable USB3.0 Drive for $100 through its Ebay store.
This is a small drive, and powers itself with the included USB data cable.

- BioShock 1, 2, and Infinite for $9
Bioshock Triple Pack (BioShock 1, BioShock 2, and BioShock Infinite) for $10.52, and coupon code LABORPCDD16 applies $1.50 off in the cart.
BioShock Infinite alone normally sells for $30.
Seagate Surveillance 6TB Hard Drive for $220 with code ESCEMHE25 .
We have the 4TB model of this Surveillance series, and it performs well as a storage drive, as designed.
Its performance is a little slow with regular files like photos and backups, but very good with large files (videos).
- 1025VA UPS for $77
Rocketfish 1025VA UPS (Battery Backup and Surge Protector) for $77 with free shipping.
Cheaper than the 825VA version which has less battery capacity.
Normally, a UPS with a 1000VA (or more) capacity would sell for at least $100.
Rocketfish is a brand sold exclusively through Best Buy, however it appears they sold off their UPSs to Cyberpower, a reputable power product company.
This is why Newegg says the 3-year warranty is covered by Cyberpower, and Best Buy has not sold this item since 2010.
This deal is a little risky since few reviews exist for Rocketfish power products, however there is a 6 year old Youtube video from someone who liked it.
- Samsung 500GB SSD for $128
Newegg is selling a Samsung 750-EVO Series 500GB Solid State Drive for $128 through their Ebay store.
Normally sells for $139, and a good value at 26¢ per GB.
In our opinion, Samsung makes some of the best quality SSDs on the market, and this model has a good 3-year warranty.

Newegg Premier waives most of Newegg's shipping fees, and upgrades the shipping method to 3-day.

TrendNet TEG-S5G 5-Port Gigabit Switch for $10 with free shipping.
The reviews are very good for the price.
- 4TB Hard Drive for $120, 6TB for $180
- Mushkin 240GB SSD for $54
Newegg is selling a Mushkin ECO3 240GB SSD for $54 through their Ebay store.
Includes a 3 year warranty.
Normally sells for $65.
This newer model uses TLC memory technology which is cheaper to make, but TLC drives can degrade quicker than older MLC technology.
Mushkin has always been known to sell quality products backed by good customer service based out of their headquarters in Colorado.

- 4-AA Battery Charger Kit for $13
Fujitsu 4-unit battery charger with 4 rechargeable AA batteries for $13 with free shipping.
The charger works with either 2 or 4 AA or AAA batteries, and claims to recharge them up to 2,100 times.
The reviews are mostly positive, but not positive as a Panasonic model that costs 30% more.
- Cooler Master HAF-912 Mid-Tower PC Case & $20 Rebate for $64
Cooler Master HAF-912 Mid-Tower PC Case for $60 plus $4 shipping ($64).
It does normally sell for around $60, but there is also a $20 Prepaid Card mail-in rebate being offered through Newegg.
We have this and the full-tower HAF-932 version, and love them.
Our HAF-932 has 9 drives, and the HAF-912 has 5 drives.
This Cooler Master case is designed to keep your components cool with fans that run nearly silent.
The HAF-912 comes with front and rear fans, and you can increase its cooling efficiency by adding a 200mm fan on the top of the case like this Red-LED silent fan whose color matches the HAF-912 nicely.
I recommend the HAF-912, as do over a thousand people who reviewed it on Newegg.
- Refurbished 2TB Hard Drive for $30
Refurbished (not new) HGST/Hitachi Ultrastar 2TB 7200rpm 3.5" Hard Drive for $30.
It is a 7200rpm drive which performs better than a regular 2TB drive, but can be more susceptible to failure due to heat.
Only recommended in a fileserver with RAID.
Old hardware RAID controllers are very cheap on Ebay (such as the 9650SE cards which support up to 2TB drives).
We built one fileserver with 5 refurbished 2TB drives from Newegg, and 2 of them failed within 2 months.
Both were replaced by their 90-day warranty.
This can be a hassle, but you can get a lot of storage for cheap from Newegg's refurbished drives.
Newegg $25 Gift Card with $5 Promo Gift Card Free.
They charge $2 shipping, or free shipping for Newegg Premier members.
If you are a Newegg Premier member, sending yourself the $25 gift card gives you a total of $30 Newegg credit for $25.
The "promotional" $5 credit expires in 1 year, and the $25 gift card never expires until fully used.
If you are not a Newegg Premier member, the $2 shipping makes it less of a deal.
Orico Hard Drive & SSD Docking Station for $15.
Easy way to copy things onto or off a hard drive or SSD through a USB connection.
Comes with an 18 month warranty.
Works with Windows and Mac.
Should work with Linux with drivers, but a more expensive eSATA docking station would work more natively on Linux.
- $25 off $200 with Paypal, code: PP2016BTS
Get $25 off of a $200+ purchase at Newegg when you checkout with code PP2016BTS and use PayPal as the payment method.
You can use any major credit card through PayPal, while just being a different interface than Newegg's regular checkout.
$25 off is an opportunity to save on Newegg's thousands of consumer electronics and computer stuff.

- 8GB Desktop PC Memory for $30 (expired)
A pair of 4GB memory (8GB in the pack) for desktop computers for $30.
Two of these packs would total 16GB of memory, plenty for most desktop PCs.
This G.Skill Ripjaws DDR3 4GB memory is some of the best quality memory for desktop PCs, and normally sells for at least $36 for the pack.
If you are building or upgrading a PC and need DDR3 memory, G.Skill Ripjaws are some of the best.
- Yamaha RX-V779 A/V Receiver for $410
Newegg is selling a Yamaha RX-V779 A/V Receiver for $410 through their Ebay store.
Normally sells for $450.
If you have speakers in two rooms, we recommend the Yamaha receivers.
Most receivers have a "Zone 2" feature which can run a separate audio source to a second room, but Yamaha's "Zone B" will copy the SAME audio into the second room.
For example, if you have surroundsound speakers in your living room and stereo speakers on your patio, the Yamaha can power all speakers from a single source.
Many regular "Zone 2" receivers can, but not with a digital source (not with a cable box, Blu-Ray Player, etc).
We have used an older model Yamaha RX-V575 for 2.5 years, and works great.
It is easy to control from the Yamaha app.
- Seagate 2TB Hybrid Hard Drive $85
Seagate (ST2000DX001) 2TB Hard Drive with built-in caching 8GB SSD for $85 today.
Normally about $95.
We have not used this drive, but reviews say it is one of the best-performing hard drives in the consumer market, and good value at 4.25¢ per GB.
Its SSD caching helps improve performance, while still giving 2TB of storage space.
It has mostly positive reviews, but some people say their drives failed soon after receiving it.
If you need a hard drive with better reliability, check out a Western Digital Blue (slower, but priced better at 3¢ per GB), or a Western Digital Black 2TB for $110 with code ESCELFF22 (expensive, reliable, 5-year warranty).
Buy a $25 Newegg Gift Card, get a free $5 Promo Gift Card.
Newegg Premier members get free shipping, otherwise they charge $2 to ship this gift card.
So, if you are a Newegg Premier member, this is like getting $5 off of your future $30+ purchases at Newegg.
Asus RT-N12 Wireless-N300 Router for $20 with code EMCELEG29 .
Also, a $10 Prepaid Card is available by
However, statistically about two-thirds of people who buy an item with a $10 rebate will not get their rebate.
Some people forget about it, some submit it improperly or without the UPC, and others feel the hassle is not worth $10.
Also, we bought a cheap Asus router a few months ago that died within 3 weeks.
All this being said, it does have some positive reviews and could be a great value for someone needing a cheap router.
