Another day, another sweet deal on the Apple AirPods Max. This time you can get them in select colorways at Amazon and Walmart for $450. We haven’t seen these headphones drop below this price yet, so this is a perfect time to get your hands on some if you missed out on any of our previous deals. Our reviewer Chris Welch was impressed by the “tremendous build quality and sound” but was a little put off by the price. This sale helps soften the blow of the initial sticker shock and brings them a little closer to competitors from Sony and Bose. These robust cans offer a luxurious fit and finish, pairing them with amazing spatial audio and noise cancellation.
If you bought that shiny new OLED Switch, but you’ve already run out of storage space, check out this deal on a Samsung Evo Plus microSD card, available at Newegg for just $16. This 128GB card effectively triples the storage space of a Switch console (or any other compatible device) and couldn't be easier to use. Just flip open the SD card port and slot it in. Prices on SD cards tend to fluctuate a lot, so if you’re in the market for some extra storage or will be soon, now might be the time to jump.
One of the best gaming keyboards available, the Corsair K100, is currently enjoying a sizable discount at Amazon, making it just $190. This gaming keyboard pulls out all the stops in terms of features, bringing together macro keys, RGB lighting, and dedicated media playback controls. The standout feature of the K100, however, is the control knob in the upper left corner. This dial can be used to control a variety of options, including brightness control, track jogging, window zoom, or switching between focused applications. The keyboard can be equipped with either Cherry Silver switches or Corsair’s proprietary OPX optical switches, depending on your preference.
No matter how you slice it, 5TB is an awful lot of space. The spacious P10 5TB external drive from Western Digital is available at Newegg and Amazon for $125. This drive is compact enough to easily fit in a bag or backpack but probably has more than enough storage space for all your games, save files, and other assorted media. Whether you’re planning to tether it to your home console or tote it around to hold your entire library of pending Photoshop projects, this handy peripheral might be worth picking up today.

This curvy monitor 27-inch from Gigabyte, the G27FC, is currently enjoying a modest discount at Newegg, bringing it down to $210.

Some additional “under-the-hood” perks include AMD FreeSync compatibility, a pair of built-in 2W speakers, and two USB ports for charging peripherals.
