While it’s not as hard to nab an Xbox Series S as it is to get your hands on a PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series X these days, Microsoft’s pearly white console is still in high demand. Currently, Woot is arranging an Xbox Series S deal, reducing its regular price from $299.99 to $279.99. It’s not a massive discount by any means, but it’s the best price we’ve ever seen for this console. The Series S isn’t as powerful as the Series X, with some of the main distinctions being the lack of a physical disk drive, less storage space, and a less powerful processor. However, the console is still home to some fantastic first-party titles such as Forza Horizon 5 and Infinite Haloand is compatible with an extensive library of next-gen titles, many of which are currently on sale.
If you’re a PC gamer, one of MSI’s best gaming monitors is now on sale at Walmart. The MSI Optix MAG321CQR normally sells for $449.99 but is currently available for $289.99 at Walmart. This 32-inch curved gaming panel is equipped with all the bells and whistles you need to elevate your gaming setup. The Optix lands in a sweet spot by combining a 144Hz refresh rate with 1440p resolution, striking a solid balance between performance and visual fidelity. Along with the expected HDMI and DisplayPort inputs, the monitor also has a pair of USB-A ports for power and a single port for data. The included stand is also height and tilt adjustable, and the monitor is VESA mount compatible.
Amazon and best buy are currently offering a deep discount on Razer’s original tournament-style keyboard. The Razer Huntsman Tournament Edition is on sale now for $79.99, which is $50 off the regular price. It’s not the lowest price we’ve seen, but it’s a decent value for anyone in the market for a TKL model. Just like other TKL keyboards, the Tournament Edition ditches the number pad and dedicated media playback buttons for a slimmer design that presents you with the essentials you need for gaming, in addition to the handy feature line and navigation keys. It also uses Razer’s exclusive Linear Optical Switches for smooth and fast key presses, as well as a standardized key layout that lets you swap custom keys for a more personal touch.
Whether you need something to keep your floors tidy or just a robotic dolly for your resident feline, the iRobot Roomba j7 is a solid option. Normally $649.99, Amazon recently discounted this model to $399.99. One of the smartest automated cleaning solutions for your home, the j7 can clean on a schedule or handle messes immediately using the Roomba app or Alexa and Google voice assistants. This model also has built-in obstacle avoidance, which allows it to easily navigate furniture and other large objects, but also ensures that it won’t accidentally choke on an errant iPhone charger.
Perhaps most importantly, however, the j7 has good battery life and is able to dodge poop and other pet messes that it can’t handle effectively. A small caveat to this otherwise well-rounded robovac is that, unlike the more expensive iRobot Roomba j7 Plus, it lacks a self-emptying base, which means you’ll have to empty the bin manually.
The Roccat Vulcan Pro keyboard represents one of the most unconventional designs in the gaming keyboard space. Currently, you can grab this one-of-a-kind keyboard for $129.99 at Amazon, a substantial drop from its usual price of $199.99 and the lowest price we’ve seen for this keyboard yet. The Vulcan Pro features a full-size layout with dedicated media playback buttons and a remarkably slim chassis. The slim styling extends to the key design, which rests on the switches rather than around them, giving the keyboard the aesthetic of a sci-fi typewriter and providing a more prominent display for the backlight RGB. One last feature that makes this keyboard unique is the software. Roccat Neon (formerly swarm) software lets you add custom keystroke sounds to your keyboard if you’re feeling nostalgic for that classic clicky sound.
