One of the best video doorbells money can buy costs a whole lot less right now. Google’s latest wired Nest Doorbell is on sale for $129.99 in all four of its colors at Best Buy, Amazon, and direct from Google. That’s a savings of $50 on Google’s small and svelte doorbell, which quickly rose to our top-recommended model shortly after it came out in late 2022. The wired Nest Doorbell is a much-improved follow-up to Google’s slightly disappointing battery-powered model of 2021 because the wired model has speedy performance and response, better video quality, and a smaller size. To take full advantage of its features, like 24/7 recording and recognizing familiar faces, you have to pay a subscription of $3.99 per month, but the Nest Doorbell also offers package detection and three hours of event-based recording for free.

Nest Doorbell (wired)
With 24/7 recording, facial recognition, reliable smart alerts, and some free video recording. Google’s newest wired doorbell is the best option for most people.
Adata’s S70 Blade M.2 SSDs are on a one-day deal at Best Buy, and you can save up to $200 on one for your PC or PlayStation 5. Here’s a quick breakdown of how much storage you can get on these deals:
- The 1TB S70 Blade is $69.99 ($40 off).
- The larger 2TB S70 Blade is $129.99 ($80 off).
- The top-end 4TB S70 Blade is $329.99 ($200 off).
Each of these meets the speed requirements for expanding a PS5’s storage, and at this price, even just getting a 1TB is a no-brainer since you’re more than doubling the usable storage built into the PS5. If you want to store a massive amount of games, the 2TB and 4TB options offer a lot of value, albeit at higher prices. All of these deals are set to end late tonight at 1AM ET.
Adata’s Gammix S70 Blade offers up to 7,400MB/s and 6,800MB/s of sequential read and write speeds in PCIe 4.0 machines or up to 3,400MB/s read and 3,000MB/s write in PCIe 3.0 rigs. It’s compatible with the PS5.
Smart lighting is almost a commodity item now with light bulbs from Philips, Wyze, and others, but some of the most unusual accent lights you can get are the Nanoleaf Elements. The Elements are wood-like hexagon panels that mount on your wall and illuminate with a clean white light. When they’re off, it’s like having a subtle small wood sculpture on your wall to accentuate your room. They’re a lot more subtle and elevated than your normal gamer-y Nanoleaf panels, and they feature a lot of smarts for illumination patterns or syncing with other systems. You can currently get a starter kit of Nanoleaf Elements with seven panels (which you set up and arrange on your wall to your liking) for $189.99 ($60 off) on a one-day deal at Best Buy and Amazon. That’s as low as these distinctive lights sell for.
The Nanoleaf Elements represent a unique spin on smart lighting, with a wooden look that’s designed to be an attractive accent in your home even when they’re not illuminated. The LED panels can be arranged in a layout of your choosing, too.
A few more quick doses of deals:
- Dell is selling the 2021 models of its XPS laptops for $650 off. You can get the 15.6-inch Dell XPS 15 laptop with 12th Gen Intel Core i7-12700H CPU, 16GB of RAM, 512GB SSD, and RTX 3050 GPU for $1,249. Or, if you prefer going bigger, the Dell XPS 17 with the same core specs and a larger 17-inch display is $1,649. The 12th Gen Intel chips are not known for their tremendous battery life, but if you’re looking for well-built 15- or 17-inch thin and light Windows laptops, you won’t find much better.

- Dell is also selling refurbished Xbox Series S consoles for just $199.99 ($100 off). The tiny Xbox forgoes a disc drive but plays all the same games as its more powerful Xbox Series X counterpart, though it can only handle digital titles off its built-in 512GB storage. Dell’s refurb comes with a more limited 90-day warranty, but 200 bucks for a recent console is a nice price. Read our review.
