Oculus Quest 2 VR Headset (Renewed Premium)
Same 1 year Oculus warranty as buying new
Amazon is offering a brand new listing for a “renewed premium” Oculus Quest 2 VR headset. You get $50 off compared to a brand new Oculus Quest and the same 1 year warranty as buying new. The listing also indicates that the Quest 2 will ship starting February 15. The Oculus Quest 2 has so far been the best value when it comes to VR gaming. It’s hundreds of dollars cheaper than its competition, it has phenomenal tracking, it doesn’t need to be tethered to a PC, and it boasts a huge library of games.
PowerBlock 50lb Adjustable Dumbbells (Pair)
Currently Woot (owned by Amazon) is offering a hefty 44% discount on a pair of adjustable dumbbells from PowerBlock. They are as well built as the Bowflex and the specs are similar. Each dumbbell ranges from 10lbs to 50lbs in increments of 5lbs. These sell out very quickly at Woot so if you’ve been eyeing a pair, you better not hesitate. Woot is owned by Amazon, so you can sign in with your Amazon Prime account to get free shipping.
Alienware Aurora R12 RTX 3080 PC for $2199.99
The RTX 3080 is way more powerful than the previous generation’s best video card, the RTX 2080 Ti, and is the best recommended video card for 4K gaming. The RTX 3080 Ti and RTX 3090 are the only cards that are (very slightly) more powerful, but they cost hundreds of dollars more. The RTX 3080 is paired with an AMD Ryzen 9 5900 CPU, which is one of the best processors you can get at the moment, whether it be for gaming or for workstation purposes. It’s been upgraded with liquid cooling as well. The rig is ready to go out of the box with 16GB of DD4-3200MHz RAM and a generously sized 1TB M.2 PCIe NVME SSD. Don’t worry, even the power supply is up to snuff with an ample 1000W rating.
Alienware m15 R5 RTX 3070 Gaming Laptop
Dell is offering an Alienware m15 gaming laptop equipped with an RTX 3070 video card for only $1499.99 after a $50 off coupon code. The RTX 3070 found in this laptop has a TGP rating of 125W, which is one of the fastest RTX 3070 video cards you’ll find in any gaming laptop. Most other RTX 3070 gaming laptops have a TGP rating of under 100W, which translates to lower performance. This is done deliberately to conserve power and reduce heat. Alienware counters this by improving the cooling of the laptop.
Bose QuietComfort 35 II Active Noise Cancelling Wireless Bluetooth Headphones
The Bose QC35 is one of the best noise cancelling headphones ever made. Nowadays, there are plenty of contenders out there, but at this price the QC 35 II can’t be beat. It’s a full $170 cheaper than the current price of the Bose QC45 or the Sony WH1000XM4.
New Apple AirPods Pro Noise-Cancelling Earbuds
If you regret not picking the Airpods Pro up on Black Friday, here’s your chance to get it today at the same price. This is the newest generation model with the MagSafe compatible wireless charger. The AirPods Pro is considered one of the best noise-cancelling in-ear headphones you can get, especially for under $200. The noise cancellation is considered to be even better than the Bose Quietcomfort because of the natural noise isolating design of the in-ear earbuds. If isolation and sound quality are of utmost important to you, then it’s easily worth the upgrade over the AirPods 3.
Apple AirPods 2
Pick up a pair of Apple AirPods 2 wireless earbuds for the lowest price we’ve ever seen. These AirPods include a charging case that you plug in via USB Type-C, not the “wireless” charger that supports Qi charging. You can get it with wireless charging case for $50 more but it’s definitely not worth it; few people actually use the wireless charging feature and inductive charging is inherently much slower.
$39.99 or Less Nintendo Switch Games
Amazon has discounted several Nintendo Switch games by about 33%-40% off. Several of these games are rarely discounted, like Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening, Skyward Sword HD, Pikmin 3 Deluxe, and Bravely Default 2. Some of them are available as a digital copy, others physical. It’s a great time to build out your Switch library, especially if you’re one of the many who picked up a brand new Switch console over Black Friday or the holiday season.
New Release: XPG ATOM 1TB M.2 SSD with Heatsink
XPG has released another PS5-compatible SSD that’s even cheaper than the XPG S70 Blade, which was already the least expensive PS5-compatible SSD you could buy. Whereas the S70 Blade has read speeds of 7400MB/s, the ATOM has read speeds of 5000MB/s. That’s still good enough to meet PS5’s requirements, and if your sole intent is to use this in a PS5 console, you’ll hardly notice the difference between the two. Like the S70 Blade, this SSD includes a thin aluminum heat spreader.
