    Gigabte GTX 1050 Ti OC 4GB Low Profile for $130 at the moment, but I know this one will drop below $100:
    https://www.cdw.com/product/gigabyte-gtx-1050-ti-oc-low-profile/5477140?pfm=srh

    PNY GTX 1060 3GB for $135 that I can't seem to find non-refurbed for under $200:
    https://www.cdw.com/product/pny-geforce-gtx-1060-3gb-bstk/5462652?pfm=srh

    And I learned something new the other day--outlet items can potentially have more than one in stock for a particular cdw part number depending on how many were removed from stock/rma'd/etc at the same time. And the only way to find out how many they have in stock is to call and have them check. I always do this when I place an order and recently they responded with 3 instead of just one to this sweet moca 2.0 kit for $78 that's usually twice this price any place you look:

    I did too before I posted it. :D We have no ethernet port in the living room of our new apartment and the wife was complaining that the tv isn't getting all 400Mbps of Internet speed. Guess what I'm going to install. :D

    I've suspected that, but how does it work? Are you able to have them add to your order, or are you on the hook for another shipping charge for a separate order?
    Nevermind! Chatted with them and they sent me a quote. Easily breezily

    I've done one where I took a picture of the I/O end of the motherboard and then opened an image editor and traced the outline of the I/O ports. Then print it on some black construction paper. Cut that out and tape it to the inside of the case. Looks better than no I/O panel at all.

    True if you're looking for most bang for the buck as both are around the same. But if you're looking for this particular 2060 in a new condition (full warranty, etc), this price will be tough to beat. And it will probably drop a few times as well, possibly dropping below the $200 mark.

    i'd consider it under $200, but I think it will be bought up prior to hitting that price...

    Either that or liquidated prior to hitting that price. It's usually at 70% and below of 'normal' prices that I see them head off to the liquidation pallet and get taken out of the outlet.

    WX2100 for $73 when I can't find it anywhere else for under $100. It might have one more drop in it, but I've noticed a lot of gpus are getting cleared out before hitting rock bottom:
    https://www.cdw.com/product/amd-radeon-pro-graphics-wx2100-bstk/5522492?pfm=srh

    If you need a small cheap low profile card with display ports, this Lenovo GT730 is at about half the price of what it is anywhere else at $47. It's almost as low as ebay prices for used ones. :eek: This will definitely be the final drop on this one:
    https://www.cdw.com/product/lvo-geforce-gt730-2gb-dual-dp-fh-bs/5515084?pfm=srh

    Asus GTX 1050 2GB for $76 that I can't find anywhere for under $140. This will probably be the last drop on this one:
    https://www.cdw.com/product/asus-geforce-gtx-1050-2gb-phoenix-b/5510633?pfm=srh

    If you need a top-end workstation card on a budget, this Firepro is almost $1000 less than I find it elsewhere:
    https://www.cdw.com/product/amd-firepro-s7150x2-16gb-ddr5-bstk/5532319?pfm=srh

    And this Quadro GP100 is almost half off of even what it goes on ebay and thousands less than what it is anywhere else:
    https://www.cdw.com/product/pny-nvidia-quadro-gp100-16gb-pcie3.0/5516739?pfm=srh

    If I could remove the bezels, run them 3 tall and 5 wide, maybe. I'd call it...cerebro.

    Sometimes they actually have more than one in stock of a particular cdw part number, but you have to call them and ask them to find out. And if they have 15 of them, cerebro would only cost you $600+shipping. :eek:

    A solid Brother black and white network laser printer (I have the older version deployed at a business for a couple of years now) for only $64. It normally goes for almost double that, although ebay is a bit cheaper for now:
    https://www.cdw.com/product/brother-hll2350dw-mono-laser-printer/5534435?pfm=srh

    And if color laser multi-function is more your thing, this Brother color laser multi-function is $163 versus $300+ anywhere else you look:

    Out of curiosity how are you guys finding these deals? I tried searching for bstk but only one item comes up. The cdw outlet main page often doesn't lead me to these deals either.

    Make sure you're actually searching the outlet portion of the site. I put in bstk and I got 1445 hits. CDW.com > click deals > Outlet then search

    50" Samsung 4k "Hospitality" TV

    $202. This is about 1/3rd of what it normally is. I didn't check to see if shipping would kill it. It's got HDMI plus a whole slew of other features.

    There is also a dropdown selector on the search box that allows you to choose the outlet. I typically will search for a brand or a single keyword I know will be in the item description like 'ssd'. (y)

    That is an absolute steal on a hospitality set since I've been in that industry and know the TVs are made to higher quality standards than the normal '1yr and then break' models.

    I researched that model and from samsung's infographic on 'consumer vs commercial TVs for the hotel room':
    "Commercial TVs typically com with standard two year warranties with option to purchase extended coverage. Post-sale services also include exchange for any damaged TVs upon arrival or on-site repairs by certifi ed technicians"

    That warranty alone is a winner in my book.(y)

    So here's my secret...actually isn't not even a secret, lol. Go looking for something you know you might need like a power supply. Then think who makes power supplies--and then search the different manufacturers--evga, corsair, etc. If you get nada, then that's okay. But a lot of times you can strike gold.

    Like these deals I found when inspired to search for 'Samsung' from the TV found above: :D

    Galaxy Tablet 8.0 32gb black for $106 when used ones go for almost $150:
    https://www.cdw.com/product/samsung-galaxy-tab-a-8.0-32gb-black/5492840?pfm=srh

    Or this tablet for $116 that's usually around the $180 mark. This one will drop a bit more if you want to wait on it:
    https://www.cdw.com/product/samsung-tab-a-2017-7.1-16gb-8-slvr/5516868?pfm=srh

    Or this serious deal on a tablet for $300 when the usual price is $500+:
    https://www.cdw.com/product/sam-galaxy-tab-s3-device-w-s-pen-blk/5504333?pfm=srh

    Mouthwatering 34in curved 3440x1440 monitor for a shocking $472 when the usual price is $800+. (I will be truly shocked if someone does not buy this thing.)
    https://www.cdw.com/product/samsung-34in-3440x1440-curved-va-pnl/5552855?pfm=srh

    75in 4k Smart TV for $1274 when B&H just dropped their price on the same model from $3k to $2k:
    https://www.cdw.com/product/samsung-75in-8000-flat-4k-uhd-smart/5540392?pfm=srh

    75in 4k commercial display with a 3 year warranty for $1344 when the usual price is $2000+:
    https://www.cdw.com/product/samsung-qb-n-75in-4k-uhd-led-disp-b/5540235?pfm=srh

    65in 4k commercial display for $1656 that usually goes for around $2k:
    https://www.cdw.com/product/samsung-65in-commercial-qled-lcd-bs/5546543?pfm=srh

    And never be afraid to look at the high dollar stuff either. Like this 55in outdoor tv for $5426 that usually costs a whopping $7000+ normally:
    https://www.cdw.com/product/samsung-55in-outdoor-display-bstk/5546375?pfm=srh

    75in 4k commercial display for $3455 that's usually $4000+:
    https://www.cdw.com/product/samsung-qm-n-75in-4k-uhd-led-disp-b/5556450?pfm=srh

    For what its worth. I've had this printer for 5 years and never had a problem. I love the fact it has is also a duplex scanner so I can scan both sides of documents through the document feeder. At this price its a steal.

    I absolutely LOVE the Brother MFC series. Even though I have older ones (oldest is from 2007), the scan to ftp feature is killer for creating computer-less document scanning solutions on a budget that are so simple that my 70yr+ old dad can use it. I have one at his house and he scans his mail to I can take care of it for him. We also used these at businesses for employees to scan their shift paperwork so we got to see in real-time what type of cash was sitting in the safe. Great machines. (y)
