Black Friday Daily Deals: Samsung Odyssey G9 49″ Gaming Monitor, Razer Blade 4K OLED Gaming Laptop, 33% Off PS Plus, and More – IGN
More good deals are coming in on the last Friday before Black Friday proper. These include an outstanding deal on one of the nicest gaming monitors on the market, 33% off a 1 year PS Plus membership, an RTX 3060 gaming PC for only $999, a sweet Razer Blade gaming laptop with a 4K OLED display and RTX 2070 graphics for $1399, and some new Black Friday deals on AAA PS5 and Xbox video games like Deathloop, Tales of Arise, and Ratchet & Clank.
Samsung Odyssey G9 49″ Gaming Monitor
The Samsung Odyssey G9 is one of the largest, most immersive gaming monitors on the market. It was a huge hit last Black Friday, and this time around it’s even less expensive than ever. Today Amazon is offering the monitor for $999.99, this first time it’s ever hit the $1K price point. The Odyssey G9 boasts a massive 49″ 5120×1440 curved display with a fast 1ms response time, 240Hz refresh rate, and G-SYNC compatibility. It also boasts a high contrast ratio, good color rendition, and wide viewing angles thanks to its QLED VA panel.
1 Year of PS Plus for $39.99
Everyone who owns a PS4 or PS5 console should take advantage of this Black Friday deal. You’ll need to subscribe to a PS Plus membership just to play online, but fortunately the membership offers way more than that. You get free games every month, exclusive discounts at the PlayStation Store, and access to the very impressive PS Plus Collection for PS5 owners. The PS Plus Collection includes highly-rated AAA games like God of War, Persona 5, The Last of Us Remastered, Days Gone, Final Fantasy XV, Mortal Kombat, Ratchet & Clank, and more, with most of them optimized for 60fps gameplay on the PS5 console.
Dell XPS Intel Core i5 RTX 3060 PC for $999.99
This is the lowest price we’ve found anywhere right now for an RTX 3060 equipped gaming PC. The RTX 3060 is no slouch; its performance is superior to the RTX 2060 SUPER and almost matches the RTX 2070 SUPER in some games. You couldn’t even find an RTX 2060 SUPER PC for under $1,000 at the moment. It’s paired with the latest 11th generation Intel Core i5 processor. The 8GB of RAM and 1TB hard drive is pretty basic, but since this is a desktop PC, it’s very easy to swap out those components yourself with better ones.
Alienware Aurora R12 RTX 3060 Ti Gaming PC
Not only is this the best Alienware gaming PC deal right now, it’s probably the least expensive prebuilt gaming PC equipped with an RTX 3060 Ti video card anywhere. With the RTX 3060 Ti video card selling for over $800 on eBay, getting a fully built Alienware system with an 11th generation Intel Core i7 processor, 16GB of memory, and 512GB of SDD storage for $1399 seems like an absolute steal. The RTX 3060 Ti is much more powerful than the standard RTX 3060; in fact, it’s as powerful as the RTX 2080 SUPER.
Razer Blade 15″ 4K OLED RTX 2070 Gaming Laptop
This is the one and only Razer gaming laptop deal we’ve seen so far for Black Friday, but boy is it a good one. For only $1399 you get a Razer Blade laptop with a gorgeous 4K OLED display, Intel Core i7 processor, and a very capable RTX 2070 video card, all in a slim and handsome all-metal package. It’s unlikely Best Buy has much of these going around.
Sony WH1000XM4 Noise Cancelling Wireless Headphones (As Good As Bose)
The ever popular and highly rated Sony WH1000XM4 headphones are back down to $248. This is the lowest price of the year by $30. The WH1000XM4 is often considered to be one of the best noise cancelling headsets under $400; it’s comparable to if not better than the legendary Bose QuietComfort headphones, both in terms of audio and noise cancelling performance as well as build quality.
$100 Apple Gift Card + Bonus $15 Best Buy Gift Card
Best Buy is offering a free $15 Best Buy gift card when you purchase a $100 Apple gift card. The Apple gift card can be used to redeem pretty much anything on Apple’s site, including products, accessories, apps, games, music, movies, TV shows, and more. Spend it on in-app content, books, subscriptions and even iCloud storage to secure files from all your Apple devices. If not for yourselft, the gift card makes a great gift for the coming holiday (heck, so does the Best Buy gift card as well).
NVIDIA SHIELD Android TV 4K HDR Media Player
The NVIDIA Shield is one of the most powerful streaming media players on the market. Powered by the NVIDIA Tegra X1+ processor (very similar to the Tegra X1 processor found in the Nintendo Switch), this streamer can handle 4K with Dolby Vision HDR video streaming alongside Dolba Atmos surround sound audio. It features both gigabit and 802.11AC WiFi connections, a MicroSD card slot for expandable storage, and an excellent remote. It also supports all of the major streaming apps including Amazon Video, Netflix, HBO Max, Hulu, and Apple TV. To get a more powerful media player that this, you’d have to fork over $70 more for the NVIDIA Shield Pro, which gives you 3GB of RAM (vs 2GB) and Plex server capability.
Vizio 2.1ch Soundbar with Sub
Your TV is only a part of your entire home theater experience. Most TVs come with internal speakers, but they are a far cry from what your brand new 4K picture really deserves. Even a simple soundbar speaker improves your experience significantly.
