The Samsung SSD is a steal...
Saving $30 is a steal lol? Not to me IMHO. These SSD sales are so so. I've seen better. Not a good Boxing Day sale as well. Oh well, at least I know I won't be lining up here.

This is not much of a sale, for example, the $124.99 Samsung 23" monitor S24B30BL, they are claiming a $95 saving, but
they are currently selling it for $139.99 and NCIX has it on sale right now for $129.99 with free express shipping.

I almost said the i7 was a sick deal until I realized it was just the 3770 and not the 3770k.

Anybody else think that there is a flyer missing? Usually they have that poster sized flyer that posts the super good deals [limited like 10/store] and the free stuff you get for being there early.

I really hope that a flyer is missing cause this is the worst CanadaComputers boxing day sale.

FYI - The 250GB samsung 840 SSD is $60 off, not $30. So yes, it is somewhat of a steal.

The problem with the Samsung 840 SSD is that it uses new TLC technology, which further reduces the number of overwrites per cell. It's also slightly slower than the 830 before it.

Uh FYI - I was referring to the 128GB that is $139.99 after $30 off. Regular price is $169.99. So yes, it is not a steal IMHO.

On black friday I got a 256GB SSD for $87 tax included. Yes, really. TigerDirect.ca had one for $100 and Memory Express beat it (and ME's price was over $200, so they had to beat it by $25). So you might want to hold out for a better price on an SSD.

Is it? You can get the Samsung 840 250GB at BestDirect today for $169.99. The price difference shrinks even further when you consider travel or shipping costs. Even worse, the Pro 128GB is available for less than Canada Computer's boxing day price ($137.85 at DirectCanada, also with free shipping).

Unless you meant that ironically?

The trend is Black Friday computer deal is better than Boxing Day (same as last year)...so try to remember this and get all your computer parts on next year Black Friday!

I seriously don't get it... Majority of prices are horribly, but what's with the UN46EH5000FXZC TV at $799? That's the current selling price at any store. Not to mention it was $589 on Black Friday... :(
