    Why are you still complaining? Please stop. I don't think you know better than Amazon. You can shop somewhere else if you're unhappy with Amazon.

    Just got 20% off of a 7600K for a final price of $145.57. The first rep I spoke to said that the deal didn't apply because it was fulfilled by Amazon, but I talked to a second rep who had me order at full price then refunded the 20% ($36.xx) to another order.

    Well, my Asus ROG pg348q came in today. It as in great shape even though it was "used". $809 was my total cost. That is a good chunk of savings.

    Did anyone bite on the 960 Pro and not get screwed?

    I was refunded 20% on my 1050ti I bought, thankfully at the last minute I decided to go for a Warehouse version with 2 fans on it, instead of the 1-fan Zotac. I then emailed Amazon and asked for the 20% when i found about it and the gave it to me!

    I ended up buying this display, received it on Saturday. It's pretty decent. I made the mistake of running it on my HTPC for a bit with duplicate picture next to my Plasma. This display by itself is nice, but the picture quality is nowhere near what my plasma TV can do, the black levels alone aren't even in the same league.

    But it'll make for a nice monitor up in my office to browse and play games on. I'm not as critical of black levels when gaming as I am when watching movies/tv shows.

    So, this sweet monitor isn't perfect. I have some back light bleed in the corners. About 1 inch x 3 inch long sections in each corner. Should I be concerned? It doesn't bother me one bit, just wondering if it can get worse...

    The ASUS PG348Q and equivalent Acer X34 are known for backlight bleed. Don't think it gets worse over time. People have done all sorts of massaging or clamping down of stuff to try to correct backlight bleed.

    Most people assume that anything Open Box might have some dead pixels, backlight bleed, or some other minor issue prompting the return.

    Pretty much the consensus is that people play the panel lottery (exchanges a bunch of times hoping for a panel that's "good enough") when it comes to the two monitors in question.

    I hear it is common in IPS. I don't want to return it. It would be a waste of such a good monitor. 99% of my use will have no impact on back bleed.

    I actually bit on the 960 pro 1tb. Came to me today with the manual but no original box. Looks mint though. Powered it on to reveal that it has 0 reads and writes and 0 hours. Basically brand new.

    Lucky me I guess

    And it's actually a Pro, not an EVO with a sticker swap or something? What a strange deal... no box and no use.

    Yep the Samsung Magician software verifies it as "Samsung SSD 960 PRO 1TB" showing 0.0 TB written. Got lucky.

    Lol funny you mention that. The magician software said firmware needed to be updated and I updated firmware and it updated with no issues.

    I’m still skeptical.. but last night I installed my clone with 700 gb of data and there were no issues...

    So eh, paid 382$ for the nvme which is sweet and got lucky i got what I paid for I suppose.

    Crazy cheap. When I was looking it was going to be like $440 with tax. I had just picked up a pair of 960 EVOs for $340 ea so had to pass.

    Doesn't look like there are any good graphics card deals, huh? Guess I'm stuck with my 980 Ti for a while. Then again, it's been driving my RoG Swift with absolutely no issues on even the newest Dishonored games. I'm not exactly hurting. Haven't upgraded this PC in a long time.

    Yeah I missed those Micro Center deals... Good thing I did though!!

    This discount doesn't apply to any GPU, although some users on here were able to get customer support to apply the discount after the purchase and others were unsuccessful.

    Good to hear, I hear they aren't performance monsters, but I imagine it'll do nicely as an operating system drive.

    I was lucky enough to get them to apply it after the fact. You basically have to take the risk of buying it and then show the deal to CS and hope they'll match it. I think part of the reason they helped me out is that I spend a LOT of money on Amazon.

    I only saw it on the 2 1060's I bought the day this deal appeared. Checked often
