It doesn’t seem that long ago that I was wishing everyone, ‘Happy 2017’, yet here we are now, wondering what the best selling components in June are.
We have reached the midpoint of the year and for most of you, you are probably enjoying the warm weather, BBQs, music festivals and also some extra time to chill, play games and of course, build your dream PC.
There has never been a better time than now to build a PC, or even, to learn about computing. With components becoming increasingly faster and more affordable, you’d be a fool to not to attempt at building your own ‘dream machine’. If you are someone that is scratching their head over what to buy next, why not take a look at the best selling components in June…
What’s great about the list of the top 5 Best Selling Components in June is that they are all affordable and are of top-quality. The most expensive best selling item is £76.
In my opinion, these components are essential for anyone that needs to re-build their PC. So, without further ado, let’s see what other computer fanatics have been buying…
Top 5 Best Selling Components in June
Your Computer Zone is no stranger to the Raspberry Pi, with the Raspberry Pi B and Raspberry Pi Zero both being reviewed within the past year. I am a big fan of the microcomputer and I own one, although my dreams of turning it into a home security hub and learning Python have not happened. Instead, my Raspberry Pi is used as a media player. There are many things you can do with a Raspberry Pi, and it is great for people of all ages, but ideally, children as it introduces them to building a computer, programming and installing an operating system. Originally, Linux was the only operating system available, however, Windows have launched an open-source OS for the Raspberry Pi.
Why you should buy a Raspberry Pi Model B
- 1.2GHz 64-bit Quad-Core ARMv8 CPU
- 802.11n Wireless LAN, 10/100Mbps Lan Speed
- Bluetooth 4.1
- 4 USB ports
- 40 GPIO pins
- Full HDMI port
- Combined 3.5mm audio jack and composite video
- Camera interface
- Micro SD card slot (now push-pull rather than push-push)
- VideoCore IV 3D graphics core
- 5 volts power input
Not all motherboards come with a wireless card, however, all modern ones do come with an Ethernet port. But, what happens when your computer is situated far away from your router? You could purchase a wireless card, but what if your computer is situated on the highest floor of an old Victorian house with thick walls? The chances of you getting a good signal
You could purchase a wireless card, but what if your computer is situated on the highest floor of an old Victorian house with thick walls? The chances of you getting a good signal are unfortunately not very likely; and in this day-in-age with video/music streaming and online gaming, you NEED a fast and reliable data connection.
That is why the TP-Link 600 Mbps Nano Powerline Adapters are a fantastic buy for anyone that wishes to have a fast internet connection to their computer.
How it works
In one pack, you will receive two adapters. One that plugs into the wall with your router connected to it via the power supply and ethernet cable and the other adapter is connected to a power supply socket upstairs with your computer connected to it using the computer’s power supply and ethernet cable. And thus, by connecting your adapters to both your router and computer, you can receive a 600 Mbps internet connection via your home’s powerline…Neat, huh!
The adapters also come with security encryption buttons too, allowing you to have a secure connection within your house.
What people are saying about this
A lot has been said about Solid State Drives (SSD) on Your Computer Zone. If you have never heard of an SSD before, or you are unaware of why they are an essential component for those wanting to seriously increase their computer or laptops speed and performance, then check out this guide, here on SSDs v HDD – and why you need an SSD.
For £50/$60 you can get:
- Performance that is 20x faster than a standard HDD
- 240 GB read/write speeds of up to 530 MB/s/430 MBs
- Shock resistant for proven durability
- 3-year manufacturer warranty
Despite the fact that I have just been advertising how good SSDs are, I also have to recommend a hard drive too. But, it’s no surprise that the Western Digital 1 TB Desktop Hard Drive is a top seller. 1 Terrabyte of data for $50/£50 with an RPM of 7200 is not too shabby.
Although SSDs offer a greater amount of speed and performance than HDDs, they are more expensive, which is why Hard Drives aren’t going anyplace soon. This HDD includes:
- 2-year manufacturer limited warranty
- 64 Mb Cache memory installed
So, another Solid State Drive enters the list. However, this time you are getting more data for your buck.
It might be the most expensive component in the list of the Best Selling Components in June, but sometimes paying that little bit extra for extra quality is worth it.
This Solid State Drive is manufactured from a name you can trust, Samsung, and not only that, but it has everything in order to be a super-fast and super-reliable component. This SSD comes with 3D N-AND technology, incredible read and write speeds, unbelievable endurance, data protection and improved energy efficiency.

Best Selling Components in June Conclusion
So, that’s a round-up of the Best Selling Components in June. As you can tell, speed and performance is a huge selling factor with the sale of SSDs, PowerLine Adapters and Raspberry Pi’s all making the list.
As you may have also noticed, everything in the list is under £100/$100…meaning you don’t have to break the bank to get top quality.
I am sure that all of these components will help you build your own computer, or if you are buying a Raspberry Pi B, that your interest in computing is improved and you start to build new and exciting projects.
