New Edition: 48-inch LG UltraGear 48GP900-B 4K HDR OLED Gaming Monitor for $1,298.87
LG UltraGear 48GP900 48″ 4K (3840 x 2160) OLED for Gaming observer
For those who love LG OLED TVs (for good reason) but don’t like the idea of a TV using a computer screen, there’s now an answer. LG released the first UltraGear OLED gaming monitor. At first glance, the 48-inch LG WOLED 10-bit color HDR display 48GP900 looks very similar to the 48-inch LG C1 OLED TV. The board is very similar, but there are some key differences. Instead of the semi-gloss coating found on an OLED TV, the 48GP900 features a low-reflective anti-glare coating which is undoubtedly better suited for up-close screen use. It also has DisplayPort connectivity and lacks a built-in Smart TV interface. It carries HDMI 2.1 ports with 4K @ 120Hz compatibility for PS5 and Xbox Series X owners, as well as support for VRR and G-SYNC, but the 120Hz refresh rate can be overclocked to 138Hz when used as a computer monitor. Finally and certainly least important of all, there’s a subtle RGB backlight on the back of the screen that is not found in OLED TVs. This is one of the best gaming monitors you will find on the market right now.
The latest Apple TV 4K at $129.99
This isn’t quite as cheap as Amazon Prime Day’s $109, but it’s still $50 cheaper than the MSRP and the best price you’ll probably see for a while. The latest Apple TV features two major upgrades. It features an A12 Bionic processor that enhances graphics performance, video decoding, audio processing and delivers high frame rate HDR with Dolby Vision. Also includes a new Apple TV remote. The overall build quality is better than before, but the biggest improvements are the five-way clickpad, the mute button, and a dedicated power button that works with your TV, receiver, and Apple TV.
Lenovo Legion 5 Pro 16″ Intel Core i7-12700H Alder Lake RTX 3070 Gaming Laptop for $1,599

Walmart is offering a great deal on the new Lenovo Legion 5 Pro laptop that is also equipped with a 12th generation Intel Core i7 Alder Lake CPU and RTX 3070 GPU. The RTX 3070 GPU in this gaming laptop also has a TGP rating of 140W, and it works as well as MSI Crosshair on paper. In real world standards, the Legion 5 Pro is one of the best performing laptops on the market. It also looks like a standard laptop, so you might want to choose this over a Crosshair if you’re not a fan of the gaming aesthetic.
XPG S70 1TB M.2 SSD with Heatsink for $109.99
Adata XPG GAMMIX S70 Blade 1TB PCIe Gen4 x4 M.2 SSD (Up to 7400 megabytes per second)
The XPG Gammix S70 Blade is the lowest 1TB PS5 compatible hard drive available at the moment. Just because it’s the cheapest doesn’t mean it’s the slowest. In fact, the S70 is actually one of the fastest SSDs available with transfer rates up to 7400MB/s. It’s on par with the likes of the WD Black SN850, Samsung 980 Pro, or Seagate Firecude 530. This is a PCIe Gen4 SSD largely released for PS5 gamers in order to double or triple their PS5 storage capacity without limiting speed. To make this deal even sweeter, it already comes with a low-profile heatsink.

New Apple AirPods Pro for $179.99
The new MagSafe model
Noise canceling Apple AirPods Pro Headphones
The current generation Apple AirPods Pro are one of the best “truly wireless” earbuds you’ll find, especially at this price point. “Truly wireless” earbuds have no wires at all; Even the earbuds are not connected to each other. In addition to the excellent sound quality, AirPods Pro are the only AirPods with active noise cancellation technology. This, combined with the inherent nature of the earbuds, means that AirPods Pro will provide better noise isolation than over-ear headphones like the Bose QuietComfort or Sony WH1000XM5. If you are thinking of getting a new pair of AirPods, we highly recommend jumping on this particular model.
