Today’s deals start with some great prices on Logitech gaming and streaming equipment from Amazon’s deal of the dayand like Monkey See, Monkey Do, Best Buy follows suit and fits many of those prices.
The selection of discounted Logitech products ranges from: mice and headphones until steering wheels and a webcam† There is even a Blue Yeti USB Microphone Kit with a Compass Desk Mount for $143.99 (about $46 off compared to buying separately) which is ideal for podcasting and streaming – and because Logitech actually owns Blue. Many of these deals are great, but let’s dig deeper into some of our favorites.
One of our overall top picks for gaming headsets is the Logitech G435 Lightspeed wireless. It’s currently number one in our ranks for the best wireless multi-platform gaming headset in our buying guide, and for good reason: it’s light and comfortable, it supports PlayStation consoles as well as the Nintendo Switch and PCs, it includes Bluetooth connectivity for use with phones, and it’s quite stylish. Logitech knocked it out of the park with some fun color options, and they’re all discounted today for just $49.99 at Amazon and Best Buy, corresponding to their lowest price to date. This headset is a great value at the full price of $79.99, so it’s even better to get them for $30 off.
The Logitech G Pro X Superlight is an exceptional wireless mouse with an esports pedigree, and you can get it today at Amazon or Best Buy for $139.99 in all three colors: black, white and bold magenta. We saw this mouse drop to a lower price about a week ago, but it was only available in black and sold out quickly.
The G Pro X is a very lightweight mouse, weighing about 63 grams. It also has Logitech’s popular Hero sensor for precise control or quick movements, and five programmable buttons. While there are cheaper mice out there, this one is a great choice if you want one that’s light without being punched with some holes and glows brightly with LEDs. For a gaming mouse I dare say that it is even a bit advanced.
Our next favorite piece of discounted kit for today is Logitech’s StreamCam webcam, which is discounted to an all-time low of $119.99 ($50 off) in black at Amazon. This model is one of our favorite step-up options for those looking for better webcam image quality. Logitech’s software offers plenty of manual controls and settings for the StreamCam, allowing you to customize the look of the 1080p feed to your liking. It supports up to 60 frames per second for a smoother and less choppy stream and does quite well in difficult lighting. Finally, one of the tricks up its sleeve is how easy it is to mount it horizontally or vertically to easily adapt to whatever you need on your live stream or video recordings.
Sticking to some established products that we like that are on sale for significant discounts, the iRobot Roomba i7 vacuum has a huge discount in refurbished condition from Woot† You can get the standard Roomba i7 for just $249.99, which is about $315 cheaper than a new one currently available on Amazon† Woot also offers the refurbished Roomba i7 Plus, the same model with an included auto-emptying station, for $399.99 (half the price of a new one on Amazon† Both come with a 90-day Woot warranty.
The Roomba i7 has been around for a few years, but while there are many newer models available, this deal offers a more expensive model at much lower prices. They may have been refurbished and are missing some minor features that newer models have, such as being able to work in darkrooms, but they still get software updates and work well. Read our review†
Now for something fresh and new. Samsung’s colorful 32-inch M8 smart 4K monitor was announced for CES in January, and the white model is already $100 off Amazon† Best Buyand direct from Samsung† This lowers the price of this new panel to $599.99 from its suggested retail price of $699.99. We haven’t tested this monitor yet – although you can bet there will be a review – but it’s an interesting one from Samsung. It has a design not too alien to Apple’s style with the M1 iMac refresh, albeit with a much smaller chin. In addition to 4K resolution and HDR 10+, the M8 has a built-in webcam and speakers. It also supports many streaming services such as Netflix, Apple TV Plus and Disney Plus. It’s even controllable via voice assistants – and thankfully not just Bixby.
While we’re looking forward to putting the Samsung M8 through its paces and seeing how it compares to the much more expensive Apple Studio Display, if you’re an early adopter you can at least get it for $100 less.
