The 49-inch Samsung CRG9 is a stunning gaming monitor. Boasting an immersive 1800R curvature, it’s capable of more deeply immersing you in whatever it is you’re doing, gaming or otherwise. As you can imagine, however, its price is usually just as jaw-dropping as its size. Today, however, it’s a little less so.
Right now, you can get the best bang for your buck with a gaming monitor that does the work of three. Instead of $1,100, the 49-inch Samsung CRG9 is currently $900 at Amazon, matching the monitor’s lowest price to date. As one of the most immersive monitors on the market, it offers a curved screen with a 32:9 aspect ratio, as well as bright 1,000 nit HDR, and low input lag. The 1440p monitor also supports AMD FreeSync 2, in addition to having a high 120Hz refresh rate.
If you picked up a PlayStation 5 and are currently looking to increase your console’s storage capacity, Samsung’s 980 Pro SSD is currently sitting at its best price to date on Amazon. Normally $230, the 1TB NVMe model is now available for $180, more than 20 percent off the list price. One of the few drives that meets (and exceeds) Sony’s requirements for speed, it’s also one of our picks for the best M.2 SSDs for the PS5. Note, however, that you will have to purchase a compatible heatsink alongside it and install it yourself. Samsung plans on releasing a model with a built-in heatsink later this year.
Samsung’s 980 Pro is a fast PCIe 4.0 M.2 SSD that’s capable of sequential read speeds of up to 7,000MB/s and write speeds of up to 5,000MB/s. These specs make it a great choice for a modern PCIe 4.0-equipped PC or for a PS5.
Not a gamer? Fret not: we also found plenty of non-gaming deals you might be interested in today. Right now, for instance, you can pair up your soon-to-be-released iPad Mini with the latest Apple Pencil, which is currently available for one of its best prices to date. Through September 29th, or while supplies last, Woot is selling the second-generation stylus to Amazon Prime members for $110 instead of $125 — $10 shy of its all-time low at Amazon. Unlike its predecessor, which awkwardly charges via the Lightning port, the newest Apple Pencil can wirelessly charge while magnetically docked to the side of the latest iPad Pro, iPad Mini, or iPad Air. Note, however, it doesn’t work with the forthcoming, entry-level iPad.
The second-gen Apple Pencil improves on everything that made the original an essential addition for any iPad owner. The latest model offers a virtually identical drawing experience to the original Apple Pencil, but with a few quality-of-life improvements.
If you’re in the market for an affordable laptop that excels at the basics, the lower-specced configuration that my colleague Monica Chin highly recommends is down $200 at Best Buy. Regularly $529, the retailer is temporarily selling the Acer Chromebook Spin 713 with 4GB RAM, a 64GB SSD, and Intel 10th Gen Core i3 for $330.
Also at Best Buy, you can get a huge discount on this hefty gaming laptop from Asus. Normally $1,000, the TUF Gaming laptop is a great value for $800. It has a 17.3-inch display that’s capable of a 144Hz refresh rate, and it has Intel’s 11th Gen Core i5-11260H processor, 8GB of RAM, 512GB of storage, and most notably, Nvidia’s RTX 3050 Ti graphics chip. So long as you don’t mind the fact that this isn’t a very portable machine, you’re in for a bargain.
This gaming laptop has a 17.3-inch screen with a 144Hz refresh rate. It should run most games well at medium to high graphical settings, thanks to its Nvidia RTX 3050 Ti graphics chip, running alongside an 11th Gen Intel Core i5 processor. It also touts Thunderbolt 4, HDMI output, and Wi-Fi 6 support.
Correction 10:20AM, 09/22/2021: This article originally stated that the Samsung monitor deal was for the Odyssey G9, but it was for the CRG9. We regret the error.
