Now that the PS5 has officially released an update that allows for internal M.2 SSD expansion, it might be worthwhile for you to upgrade your storage. The WD Black SN850 has always been the most recommended SSD for this upgrade. A heatsink is strongly recommended, but there’s no need to waste money buying an expensive SSD with a pre-installed heatsink. You can easily buy a heatspreader off Amazon for much less and install it yourself. The install takes no more than a few minutes and you’ll come out at least $50 richer.
The WD Black SN850 M.2 1TB SSD Without Heatsink Is $70 Cheaper Than the Same Model With Heatsink
The WD SN850 is currently the most popular (and probably the best) SSD to get for your PS5 storage upgrade. It’s blazing fast drive with transfer speeds rated at up to 7,000 MB/s and a PCIe Gen4 interface. It’s also confirmed by Western Digital themselves to be compatible with the PS5. Save $70 and get the model without heatsink, then buy a cheap PS5 compatible heatsink on Amazon and put it on yourself (it’s super easy). If, on the other hand, you’re looking for the 500GB or 2TB model, WD Store does have discounts on those.
Apple AirPods Pro Noise-Cancelling Earbuds
If you regret not picking the Airpods Pro up on Amazon Prime Day, here’s your chance to get it today for an even lower price. Today the price of the AirPods Pro has dropped $70, or 28% off. This is the lowest price we’ve seen for a brand new pair of these highly rated earbuds. The AirPods Pro is considered by many to be the best truly wireless noise-cancelling in-ear headphones you can get, and a very big step up in quality from the standard AirPods.
New Oculus Quest 2 VR Headset with More Storage, Same Price, and Bonus Newegg Gift Card
The Oculus Quest 2 has so far been the best value when it comes to VR gaming. It’s hundreds of dollars cheaper than its competitors, it has phenomenal tracking, it doesn’t need to be tethered to a PC, and it boasts a huge library of games (even Half Life: Alyx is easily playable on the Quest 2). Now, Oculus has re-released its Oculus Quest 2 VR headset with double the storage (128GB vs 64GB) for the exact same price. There’s even less of a reason now to pick something else. I purchased an Oculus Rift when it first launched, played the heck out of it, and now own a Quest 2. In my opinion, and with price factored in, it’s far and away the best VR headset to get into Beat Saber.
Buy Quest 2 Accessories, Get a Newegg Gift Card

$2,600 Off Lenovo ThinkPad 15″ 4K RTX 3080 Laptop
Update: The ship date listed on Lenovo’s site shows 4+ months, and that seems to be exaggerated. Some buyers have reported receiving their laptops in about 2-3 weeks.
Lenovo ThinkPad laptops are known for their best-in-class ruggedness and reliability, and even if it ever breaks down, Lenovo offers the best customer service in the business. Usually there’s a steep price premium for this. Today, however, this $5000 MSRP laptop is discounted by $2600 thanks to a combination of an instant discount and a new coupon code that popped up today. If you’re looking to purchase a ThinkPad that’s got the power to do some serious gaming, you won’t find a price like this anytime soon.
Dell XPS Intel Core i7 RTX 3060 Ti PC for $1369
Enjoy high end PC gaming on a budget. There is one of the best deals we’ve seen for an RTX 3060 Ti equipped PC and handily beats out a similar deal we saw on Labor Day by over $100. The RTX 3060 Ti is a very powerful video card; it’s better than the previous generation’s RTX 2080! It’s a big upgrade from the 3060 non-Ti model and the one to get if you’re going to play games at resolutions of 1440p or higher. This particular deal is found on the Dell Small Business site, but anyone can purchase there just like on Dell’s regular site; you can treat Dell Small Business as exactly the same as Dell Home.

Cooler Master is a reputable brand that’s known to make quality products, and this chair is no exception. It has all the bells and whistles you’d except for a high-end gaming chair, like molded foam and PU leather upholstery, up to 180-degree recline, 2D armrests, included headrest and lumbar pillows, full adjustability, and more.
