The Nextbit Robin, a crowdfunding idea that actually came to fruition, can be had at a massive discount through Amazon's daily Gold Box deal. Originally $399, for today only you can get it at a paltry $199. If you're on a GSM carrier, there's a lot to like here, especially at the price. Read More
In the market for some high-end Bluetooth headphones? Amazon has you covered, at least for the next few hours. US shoppers can buy the Parrot Zik noise-cancelling Bluetooth headphones for $99.99, which is half off of the current price. There are a couple of caveats, though: at the time of writing only the somewhat gaudy gold-on-white version is on sale, and these are the first-gen design, not the more recent (and much more expensive) second or third generation. David reviewed this version three years ago. Read More
Those of you with pro—or maybe just moderately complicated—home entertainment systems know how much of a pain it can be to manage the various remotes involved. Even worse is if anyone other than you wants to operate them; I had somebody watch my pets while on vacation and I came home to see the TV on and static buzzing because my poor friend just couldn't figure it out. A universal remote like one in the Logitech Harmony series can make things much easier, so why not jump on board today when they are on Amazon's Gold Box daily deal?
There are two models, each refurbished, available:
The first model, seen on the left for $54, has never been lower than $65 before (was also a one-day deal) and has otherwise ranged between $78 and $100, according to CamelCamelCamel. Read More
Let's not beat around the bush. You know what a MicroSD card is, you know which devices can use it and which ones can't, you know some new flagships support it but don't have adoptable storage, et cetera. What you came here to see is what this card is all about and the link to get it before stock runs out as fast as Scooby-Doo from a haunted house.
SanDisk makes great MicroSD cards. This model in particular has 200GB of storage which is the most you can get from the company now. It's more than six times the size of a modern flagship's 32GB internal memory. Read More
Are MicroSD cards cheap nowadays or what? I remember buying my first 128MB (that's MEGAbytes) card sometime in 2005 and here we are talking about affordable 128GB cards in 2016! If you're good at math, you'd know that we multiplied the storage by a thousand and something and we're still somewhere in the same price ballpark. Crazy.
This Lexar 128GB is a Class 10 card that can read files at up to 95MB/s and write at up to 20MB/s. It comes with a USB 3.0 reader too so you can transfer your files quickly to a computer. It's using the old packaging though, which apparently makes it ripe for discounts. Read More
While the Dell Venue 8 is a tablet we considered quite solid (and now it even has Lollipop), there's no denying it was always really, really pricey. $450 isn't exactly the going rate for many Android tablets these days as the premium segment of the market never really materialized in a big way. To help ease the sticker shock of the unabashedly good-looking Venue 8, Amazon is chopping 20% off the top of that MSRP today in a Gold Box deal.
That means you can get the 32GB Venue 8 for just $359 (OK, $358.99, you got me), which is $10 less than the lowest price we've seen the 16GB version at. Read More
Do you need a microSD card for your phone or tablet? Amazon's got them. Today you can get SanDisk memory cards ranging from 32GB to 128GB. The small side starts at just $11. The maximum offering will cost you $60. Either way, you're looking at saving 35 - 40%.
The SanDisk Ultra cards offer read speeds of up to 48MB/s. The Extreme cards cost a little more, as they go up to 60MB/s. There are also a couple full size Extreme SD cards available on the off chance you have an Android device that accepts the format.
Most of the discounted flash drives won't do your phone any good, but there are a few OTG sticks on sale as well. Read More
Do you want a little extra storage for your MicroSD-equipped smartphone? Alternately, do you want a hell of a lot of extra storage? Then checking out Amazon's daily Gold Box deal this morning would be a good place to start. The retailer is offering massive discounts on Kingston-branded cards in 16GB, 32GB, 64GB, and 128GB capacities. As usual with Gold Box, the discounts are valid for today only, and all come with free two-day shipping for Amazon Prime users.
16GB: $5.49 ($20 off)
32GB: $11.99 ($28 off)
64GB: $24.99 ($40 off)
128GB: $70.99 ($124 off)
All of them are certified for Class 10 speeds of 10MB per second, making them acceptable for photography both on your phone and in a standard camera via the included adaptor sleeves. Read More
Today's Amazon Gold Box daily deal is all about Lexar memory, and in not-so-modest sizes and speeds. Nope, these are not your bottom of the barrel memory cards and flash drives on offer. Those most relevant to your phone needs, the microSD cards, boast UHS-I/U3 speeds, meaning they meet the second-most rigorous speed specification in the industry. The deals are good too, matching the lowest price Amazon has ever offered for them.
You'll see 32, 64, and 128 gigabyte variants of the microSD and the larger two sizes for the SD card. The microSD cards are, as previously mentioned, rated for 95MB/s read speeds in accordance with the UHS-I specification. Read More
The state of MicroSD card support for Android is kind of odd right now. Long-time expandable storage champion Samsung has decided to forego it for the latest flagships, the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge, while its competitors at HTC and LG are including MicroSD card slots in their high-end phones. If you're still in the market for a card, Amazon is selling them in 32GB and 64GB capacities at two speeds for a significant discount through the Gold Box daily deal portal.
If you just need a little bit of extra storage, the SanDisk Ultra 32GB card with speeds of up to 48MBps is going for $12.99, a modest discount of $4 (and still much lower than you're likely to find at most brick-and-mortar retailers). Read More
