UK Black Friday deals

LG B8 OLED 55" for £1299 - was £1799, save £500

b8_fix

The LG B8 has the same gorgeous OLED screen as our top 4K HDR TV pick, the LG C8 OLED, but comes with a worse stand and last year's processor instead of this year's. That doesn't make a big difference in daily use, but it makes a massive difference to the price - you're looking at a TV that's £400 cheaper than the flagship model of the same size! You can also find the LG B8 on Amazon at the same discounted price, but we recommend getting this one from John Lewis to take advantage of their five year warranty.

Samsung 34" 3440x1440 100Hz curved ultra-wide gaming monitor for £530 (was £700)

lc34

This Samsung gaming monitor is one of the best ultrawides on the market, thanks to its 34-inch span, 3440 x 1440 resolution and QLED tech. It's currently available for £170 off from Amazon, bringing the usual £700 price down to £529. This is a 100Hz panel as well, which provides a noticeable improvement in fluidity and responsiveness compared to the standard 60Hz, if not quite as amazing as the 144Hz and higher panels you sometimes see in some (lower resolution) gaming monitors. Overall though, the Samsung LC34F791WQUXEN hits a good balance and definitely gets a warm Digital Foundry recommendation - especially at this best ever price!

Acer Predator XB241H 180Hz 1080p gaming monitor for £300 (was £400)

xb241h

Amazon have taken a healthy £100 off the price of this high refresh rate gaming monitor, which can overclock from 144Hz to a mighty 180Hz thanks to its G-Sync support. It comes in a compact 24-inch size at 1080p and boasts a response time of 1ms, so action on-screen should be delivered to your eyeballs with minimum delay.

Zotac GeForce GTX 1070 Mini 8GB for £300 (was £400)

1070mini

This is the best price we've seen on the Nvidia GTX 1070: £300. This card is excellent at 1080p gaming and a good performer at 1440p. You could even stretch to 4K if you're really committed to settings tweakery, although of course the GTX 1080 and its descendents are better equipped for that sort of thing. This Zotac Mini card measures just over eight inches, making it ideal for builds in small PC cases, but it still performs well enough to justify including in a mid-tower or full-tower as well.

MSI GeForce RTX 2080 Gaming X Trio + Battlefield V + £20 Steam credit + MSI GH70 headset for £750 (was £830)

2080megabundle

Holy bundle deals, Batman! This version of the RTX 2080 comes with Battlefield V, a £20 code for Steam and a blooming MSI GH70 surround sound headset worth £100. Of course, you also get a graphics card as well, in MSI's triple-fan Gaming X Trio configuration. That should provide excellent cooling, allowing overclocking to wring even higher frame-rates out of this high-end card. If you could use the headset or the Steam code, we reckon this is the best deal going for the RTX 2080.

Crucial MX500 1TB SSD for £117 (was £136)

mx500

This is the best deal we've seen for a 1TB SSD on Black Friday, with Crucial's highly-rated MX500 coming down to just £117 on Amazon. This 2.5-inch SATA drive offers strong performance and has a good reputation for reliability, making it a good choice for anyone that's looking to massively upgrade their storage. The 860 Evo, below, does offer better performance but the difference in practical terms may be hard to notice.

Samsung 860 Evo 1TB + Assassin's Creed Odyssey for £160 (was £237)

860evo

The Samsung 860 Evo is one of our favourite SATA SSDs, and right now you can get a good deal on the 1TB model over on Ebuyer. They're offering the drive for £160, which is quite reasonable, but the big draw here is that you also get a code for Assassin's Creed Odyssey, which is quite a good game and is worth at least £30. The drive is rated for sequential reads of 550MB/s and sequential writes of 520MB/s, but its real advantage is its excellent random and mixed workload performance which rivals any other SATA SSD on the market. Altogether, a solid Black Friday deal on a great SSD.

Logitech C920 HD Pro Webcam for £25 (was £90)

c920

Logitech's 920-series webcams have been the reliable standard for years, and right now you can pick up the C920 that debuted in 2012 for a measly £25, down from its launch price of £90. That's the cheapest it's ever been, although of course the C920 has been available at nearly as low several times before over the years. Still, if you're after a cheap but serviceable webcam, this will certainly do the trick.

That's all the UK deals for the moment! Check back tomorrow to see the latest and greatest in discounted gadgetry, or take a look at our dedicated pages for all of the best Black Friday deals we've found thus far that are still live.

US Black Friday deals

LG B8 OLED 55" Certified Refurbished for $1499 (was $2299)

lg_b8

This certified refurbished version of the LG B8 is offered by Walmart and lets you net a great price on a high-end 2018 OLED. The B8 model has the same amazing OLED screen as the LG C8. The B8 comes with last year's alpha 7 processor instead of this year's alpha 9 processor, but unless you've got the two TVs next to each other you're unlikely to notice the difference this makes to responsiveness. All in all, a great deal for anyone working to a budget that still wants the best OLED screen on the market!

Samsung QN65Q6F 65" QLED 4K TV for $1297 (was $2199)

samsungtv

This is Samsung's entry-level QLED TV, offering the richer colours and better contrast of the higher-end TVs at a more affordable price - and it just got way cheaper, with Amazon slashing the 2018 65-inch model by $900. The Q6F is great for gaming thanks to its extremely low input lag, excellent contrast and high peak brightness. Variable refresh rates are also supported, i.e. FreeSync, which is great news for anyone with an Xbox or a gaming PC that uses an AMD graphics card. All in all, a great gaming TV for a very attractive reduced price.

Dell Alienware AW3418DW 34" 3440x1440 120Hz ultrawide G-Sync monitor for $719 (was $1499)

AW3418DW

$719 for a brand new Dell Alienware AW3418DW on Ebay. This is an insanely good price on the best ultrawide monitor on the market. If you're not familiar with it, this monitor has a curved 34-inch IPS panel at 3440 x 1440 resolution, a 120Hz refresh rate (20Hz higher than other monitors with the same screen) and G-Sync support. That's an insane spec sheet, and this is an insane price - grab one before it goes.

Samsung CHG70 Series 32-inch 1440p 144Hz FreeSync for $512 (was $599)

chg70

This Samsung monitor combines a lot of very nice tech in one curved package. It's a 2560 x 1440 panel that runs at 144Hz and supports AMD FreeSync, perfect for PCs with AMD GPUs and Xbox Ones. It uses a VA panel with QLED tech, so you can expect colour reproduction to be better than the average VA monitor. It's also well adjustable, with tilt, swivel and height adjustment on tap. Right now, it's $80 from Newegg, so get it while you can.

AOC 27B1H 27" 1080p IPS monitor for $110 (was $200)

27b1h

This is a good deal on a stylish 27-inch monitor. It's not the best for fast-paced games, thanks to 6ms response times and a standard 60Hz refresh rate, but the IPS panel will ensure games do look nice with accurate colours and wide viewing angles. The AOC monitor also has very slim bezels, so it could be a nice choice for multi-monitor setups too. At $110 with code 119ZFCF150, it's a pretty agreeable monitor for the money.

ADATA Ultimate SU800 2.5-inch SSD 1TB for $96 (was $125)

su800

This is the best price so far for a 1TB SSD: just $96 when you use the code BF20 on the link above. This is a decent little drive too, with a three year warranty, up to 560 MB/s reads and up to 520 MB/s writes. It's not the absolute best SSD on the market, but for the price it's hard to argue too much!

Samsung 970 Evo 500GB for $117 (was $150)

970evo

The Samsung 970 Evo is the NVMe that we recommend to most people, thanks to its excellent reputation for reliability and demonstrably strong performance in all metrics. The 970 Evo has seen some nice reductions from Ebuyer, with the 250GB model at $87 (from $100) and the 500GB model reduced to $117 (from $150). These are some of the best prices that we've seen on one of our favourite SSDs, so go for it if you've been waiting for a good price!

Samsung T5 portable SSD 250GB for $80 (was $130)

t5

Samsung's incredibly fast portable SSD, the T5, has been reduced for Black Friday. The 250GB model is now just $80, a mighty $50 off. The 500GB model is also on sale over at Newegg for $98, down from $130. Both of these are among the best prices we've seen, so it's worth jumping on this while you can if you're after a super-fast portable SSD that you can use for game storage, extra editing storage or whatever else you'd like.

That's all the deals for now! Check back tomorrow to see the latest and greatest in discounted gadgetry, or read on for direct links to all of our dedicated subpages.
