    Hi, I recall that things seemed to be the cheapest during Black Friday sales last year. Usually how much cheaper than usual? I am considering to buy samsung T5 1TB ssd, perhaps Caldigit TS3+ or Thinkpad TB3 dock, perhaps eGPU and Nvidia GPU 20x0 series, mStand gold. Not sure if I should buy now and get on with life or wait for 1.5 more months.

    It usually is not much. About the same as educational discount. When I worked there I would tell people if you were going to buy something no matter what then that is a good time to buy.

    Retailers are no longer focusing on Black Friday alone, but have spread out the sales to most of November. And as a result, the deals overall aren't as good as they used to be. And often, you could've bought items throughout the year for LESS than the sales prices during the extended Black Friday season.

    All that to say, because you are interested in particular brands/models, shop around for the best price for what you want, buy it, and enjoy it.

    The Samsung T5 SSD is on sale. So it is better to get it now?

    How come there is no big discount for mStand? I have been checking for a year. The biggest discount was around Black Friday last year.
