    Each year I pound the plastic and buy stuff.

    The best has been a

    2x 512gb MX100 Crucial SSD for £240 (£120 each)

    I figure we could post any good deals we find, the above sold out in about 12 minutes, others have sold out even quicker.

    So people reading should know the goods sell out quickly.

    Amazons is here http://www.amazon.co.uk/Black-Friday-Deals/b/
    Asda: http://www.asda.com/blackfriday/index.html
    Tesco: http://www.tesco.com/direct/black-friday-cyber-monday-deals/
    Very: http://www.very.co.uk/black-friday
    Currys PC World: http://www.currys.co.uk/gbuk/black-friday-785-commercial.html
    Argos: https://www.argos.co.uk/static/ArgosPromo3/includeName/black-friday.htm?tag=ar:gnav:BlackFriday

    If you want to buy more than 1 from amazon, you need separate accounts, so prepare well :)

    I bought a Roku 3 on Monday's Amazon Lightning Deals for £59.99, normally around £90-£100. Sold out in seconds. No idea if any good, just interested from a business point of view, but my net is slow!

    Thanks for the update, most useful. Sadly, I don't think there's much chance of a Surface Pro 3 being in a Black Friday deal, which is what I'm looking to buy.

    It's interesting to see which retailers are adopting Black Friday and which are not. I have been doing a little Black Friday promotion via LowPrices Twitter, there look to be some good deals about.

    Very little I want, if anything, these days and most Black Friday deals are things I've already purchased sadly. There are some great offers on Crucial SSDs (MX100 and the older M500) at the moment however I just don't need them as already went that way a good while back. My most recent laptop was my first MacBook purchase and came with on board PCIe flash storage which removes the limitations of the SATA interface. The laptop works great and I can run Windows on it using Parallels Desktop.

    There are PCIe expansion cards with on board flash storage chips available for self built desktops these days and prices have dropped considerably. Windows 8.1 supports these natively. For those wanting fast desktop storage it might be worth looking at these because the performance is above that of SATA/SAS connected SSD.

    The Lenovo offering to match the surface (forgottten the name) is on offer now on Amazon or later in. So the surface maybe, my mat at. JL says lots of new stuff there getting deals on. Apple are doing something on everything.

    Edit:.I had a revodrive pcie sad in my old editing station, 3 way raid (striped) ssd was considerably faster for video editing.

    00:28 and they have a queueing system on the Currys website due to high demand.

    They've had it most of the day, first time i entered the queue i only had to wait 3 mins, around 10pm there were 400,000 people in front of me , just over an hour in the queue. Been up and down since then about an hour ago i was in the queue for around 20 mins, currently sitting in about 30 mins.

    Much prefer that over the server crashing like game.co.uk

    Richer Sounds or John Lewis seem best bet for TVs.

    My mum wants a 40 ish inch Smart TV. Out of all the smart TV's I've tried, Samsung seem to the smoothest apps, as well as having iplayer, itv player, 4od and 5 On Demand, so looking at a decent samsung for her.

    Who's promoting Black Friday on their affiliate sites then? I am. I think I might be getting into the spirit of it after visiting Amazon.
