Here at Android Central, we may be busy writing down great Prime Day deals that we discover for our readers to benefit from, but that doesn’t mean we’re not looking for great deals to get our hands on. Some of us have even managed to disable some items ourselves. Here are some of the items our employees purchased during Prime Day, although not everything related to the type of content we usually cover.
Jeramy Johnson, Editor in Chief
These may sound like headphones, but Jerami chose a portable neck fan so he could withstand the sweltering heat of Texas.
“I live in Austin and have been temps over 100 for several months now, which has hampered my desire for long walks or jogging. Luckily my wife spotted this portable neck fan. I mean, I thought I was really cool, but this It will definitely help!
Michael Hicks, Senior Editor
Michael Hicks has stayed on the brand and bought a discounted Sony DualSense Controller for the PS5 in a cosmic red colored route, allowing him to swap things out from the regular white controller, which can easily get dirty.
“The battery of a PS5 DualSense controller can die on you after a long session of gaming, so I’ll pick up a second Cosmic Red controller to make sure the fun never stops! Any color option is better than white, which tends to show dirt quite easily. Plus, I was eager to play some couch co-op games like Overcooked and Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands with my partner.”
Derek Lee, News Editor
Derek bought a massage gun because when he’s not writing and working, he lifts it and exercises it.
“I work out a lot, but I’m not very good at remembering to do anything about recovery. I guess with a massage gun, I can do a better job at it, especially since it’s something I can do while I’m working. Plus, a friend of mine has one, and it was the best thing.” ever when I took him on tour.”
Andrew Merrick, Senior Editor
Andrew got a new keyboard to upgrade his setup. He’s a fan of RGB lighting, so we’re not surprised to see it here.
“If there’s one thing to know about me, it’s that I have an affinity with mechanical keyboards. In trying to get a new keyboard without irritating my wife, the Keychron K6 is perfect for switching with different switches and fiddling with a growing range of keycaps.”
Robert Doolin, copy editor
Robert is a computer gamer and has spent some big bucks to get an LG monitor that could be perfect for any gaming setup. After all, LG makes many of the best gaming monitors out there.
“For those PC gamers who still live a 1080p lifestyle (like me), I ended up stumbling upon a new mid-sized monitor. I upgraded from an old 24-inch Scepter to LG’s 27-inch gaming monitor, which features all the The bells and whistles you’ve been wanting for a decent gaming monitor: 240Hz refresh rate, 1ms response time, IPS, and G-SYNC/FreeSync compatible. Along with amenities like a thin bezel and adjustable viewing angle, this was a solid deal to upgrade light.”
Chris Weddell, Senior Editor
Chris is living his best life after buying an ice cream machine for the family. And really, can’t we all use an ice cream maker?
“After several failed attempts at making homemade ice cream at over 100 degrees in my old-fashioned machines that required constant refilling of ice and rock salt, I caved on Prime Day and bought a new ice cream maker. No, it’s not. t techie Absolutely. There’s no display, app, or communication, but the tabletop Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker will bring smiles to my family and take the stress out of me.”
Nicholas Sutrich, Senior Editor
Nick took the lead and bought a second Meta Quest 2 VR headset, which will allow him to enjoy virtual reality games with his family, especially his son.
“I only had to get my second Oculus Quest 2 on prime day so I could finally play VR games with my son again. Over the years I’ve had a lot of VR headsets and while some are still lying around, there aren’t any It’s an effort to use it like Quest 2. Now, I’ll finally be able to jump back into the Rec Room with him while we blast aliens in our living room and fight through skeletons as a cocky pirate. It’s also a good idea to save $50 in the process.”
Jerry Hildenbrand, Senior Editor
Jerry has been trying to get his hands on a graphics card for quite some time, and Prime Day seemed like the perfect time to grab one.
“I got the 3080 Ti card not because it was on sale, but because the seller (and Amazon, I think) was storing it until Prime Day, and finally it was available at retail. I didn’t really have the money for it and had to use my credit card, but not I have no idea when I’ll get another chance to buy one, and I really wanted to. It’s great that I saved 23%. And it’s nicer to be able to buy one ever, anyway.”
There are still plenty of deals going on as Prime Day comes to a close. Check out our Prime Day live blog to check out some must-have deals before they run out!
