Black Friday is exactly one week away, but the deals from the traditional holiday event have begun well before then. Here are some pre-Black Friday deals to watch:

37% off Western Digital hard drive

Western Digital is selling their My Passport Ultra 1TB hard drive for $49.99 today  on eBay.

The Passport Ultra supports USB 3.0, so when it’s connected to a USB 3.0 (usually blue) port on your device, it’ll access and save files “up to three times” faster than your traditional USB 2.0 port. The hard drive also comes with WD SmartWare Pro, an application that allows you to choose when and where to back files up. These backups can be scheduled to times that work best for you, and can use your Dropbox to backup files to the cloud.

The My Passport Ultra is also shock tolerant, and comes with a three-year warranty if anything should happen with it.

50% off Logitech UE BOOM Bluetooth speaker

Logitech is selling its UE BOOM Bluetooth speaker for $99.99 today on Amazon.

The UE BOOM’s cylindrical shape is wrapped in nine colors, and its Bluetooth functionality allows for songs to switched, volume to be adjusted, and phone calls to be taken from up to 50 feet away for up to 15 hours on a charge.

Perhaps the most unique feature is the ability to use Logitech’s UE BOOM app to wirelessly connect two of these Bluetooth speakers together to provide a stereo Sonos-esque experience.

43% off Razer DeathAdder gaming mouse

Razer is selling its DeathAdder gaming mouse at its lowest price ever ($40) today on Amazon.

The mouse has an ergonomic design with curves designed to fit under your palm in a matte black finish to prevent sweat build-up and promote better grip.

The DeathAdder experience can be improved with Razer Synapse, which is the company’s hardware configurator. This configurator allows every detail to be tweaked to give you a better experience, and it saves to the cloud for instant access anywhere.

That’s it for now. I’ll have more deals throughout the holiday weekend, but until then, feel free to follow me on Twitter, Google+, Instagram, and more around the interwebs for more of my commentary between posts. Enjoy your Thanksgiving, and I’ll be back at it next week.
