Friday is always a good day for a gaming deal, and we’ve put together a juicy combo deal today. Amazon’s got great deals on one of our favorite gaming mice, and a highly regarded mechanical keyboard that earned our Editors’ Choice award. On top of that we’ve found a great free game. Let’s get started.

First up is the Roccat Tyon multi-button gaming mouse for $50, down from $60. This is the all-time low for this mouse on Amazon, though we have seen it hit this price several times in recent weeks. This is truly a multi-button mouse. In fact, we named it  “the best gaming mouse with lots of buttons” in our roundup of the top gaming mice. It offers a ridiculous 14 programmable buttons, along with an 8,200 DPI sensor and an RGB light channel around the bottom of the mouse.

The 1TB Samsung 860 QVO, our favorite budget SSD, is cheaper than ever at just over $100

It’s a good day to get a whole lot of storage at a great price. Our favorite budget SSD is available for cheaper than it’s even been before. Amazon is selling the 1TB Samsung 860 QVO SSD for $108. That’s down from it’s MSRP of $130, and less than the 1TB Samsung 860 EVO’s current price of $148.

It’s understandable if you haven’t heard of the QVO line before. This is Samsung’s first consumer-grade quad-level cell (QLC) NAND drive. QLC NAND crams in four bits per cell versus three-bit per cell on the TLC NAND that underlies the 860 EVO. The end result is that with QLC, SSD makers can offer greater storage capacities at a lower cost.

If you need to get some reading done without lugging around a ton of books, today’s deal is for you. Amazon is selling the latest version of the 6-inch Kindle with no ads and the Kindle Paperwhite with ads at $70 and $100 respectively–a discount of $30. Sure, those are their typical sale prices, but this is about as good as it gets, as these are the all-time low prices for these devices. The sales started earlier this week, and it’s not clear when they will end.

The latest version of the 6-inch Kindle without “Special Offers” comes in either black or white, and has built-in Audible functionality. This feature lets you read a book, and then switch to listening to the audio book via Bluetooth headphones while you’re on a run. This basic device features a 6-inch, 167ppi, glare-free display and 4GB of onboard storage. The fact that it Continue reading “Pricing for the 6-inch Kindle and Kindle Paperwhite drop to all-time lows”

Mesh Wi-Fi maker Eero is officially part of Amazon today, and to celebrate it seems the online retailer is putting on a one-day sale. Right now you can pick up an Eero hub and two beacons for $299. That’s not quite the all-time low of $296.65, but it’s close, and this system usually sells for $400. The sale ends on Tuesday night just before midnight Pacific time.

Eero is a mesh Wi-Fi system, which promises to kill dead Wi-Fi spots in your house. Unlike a traditional Wi-Fi extender system, where signals are just repeated from the primary router, mesh systems act as routers working in tandem putting a “blanket” of wireless coverage around your house.

KeepSolid VPN Unlimited Review: A capable VPN and a great option for Netflix fans


This post is by Ian Paul from Macworld


Click here to view on the original site: Original Post




In late November, KeepSolid rolled out VPN Unlimited 5.0 for Mac and Windows. Where the previous version of VPN Unlimited was a mess of options and information overload, VPN Unlimited 5.0 is more streamlined to help you get online faster.

Overall, KeepSolid is a pretty good service with reliable but not blazing fast speeds. It’s also a good platform for accessing streaming services like Netflix, whether you’re overseas or just securing your connection at an airport.

Note: This review is part of our best VPNs roundup. Go there for details about competing products and how we tested them.

ESET Cyber Security Pro for Mac review: High level of protection at a good price


This post is by Ian Paul from Macworld

Forget about the cringe-worthy name; ESET Cyber Security Pro is a solid anti-virus suite for Mac. AV-Test gave ESET CSP a perfect score on its widespread and prevalent malware test in December, the most recent test available. Our own checks produced a similar result when testing ESET CSP on a MacBook running macOS Mojave (AV-Test used High Sierra).

ESET had no trouble blocking most of the threats on WICAR’s test site of prevalent web-based attacks. The only issue we noticed was that ESET didn’t detect the Adobe Flash hacking team leak; however, we tested on Safari without an active Flash plugin.

The tiny, yet big-sounding Bose SoundLink Micro portable speaker is $30 off

If you’re in need of a diminutive Bluetooth speaker that still packs an auditory punch, Amazon’s got a deal for you right now. The Bose SoundLink Micro Bluetooth speaker is on sale for $80. That’s about $20 off the usual price, and $30 under the speaker’s MSRP. We saw it for $10 less around the holidays but for this time of year it’s a great price for a stellar wireless speaker.

We reviewed the SoundLink Micro in late 2017 and loved it, awarding the speaker a 4 out of 5 star rating. At the time we weren’t big fans of the $110 price tag, but at $80, it’s a very good deal. The Bose SoundLink Micro sounds pretty good for its diminutive size, offering good audio channel separation, but not good enough to create a true stereo sound. For that, you’ll need two of these speakers and put them in Continue reading “The tiny, yet big-sounding Bose SoundLink Micro portable speaker is $30 off”
