Today at Amazon, you can find several gaming accessories for less than they usually cost. There are a few devices that are worth calling out, one of which is Asus’ 24-inch G-Sync-compatible monitor. This 1080p monitor (TN panel, model VG248QG) has a 0.5-second response time, and supports up to a 165Hz refresh rate. Normally around $270, it’s $190 right now.

So long as you’re alright with a 1080p image and the TN panel, this monitor seems to be a good value. It has slim bezels, and unlike most other affordable gaming monitors, this design doesn’t feature an excessive amount of harsh red detailing. What’s more, Nvidia has certified it as G-Sync-compatible, which means this monitor meets its standards for handling variable refresh rate for smooth gameplay at high frame rates, and for doing so without any screen tearing.

HP’s Omen gaming laptop is another excellent deal from Amazon’s one-day sale. It’s on the 15-inch model that comes built with an Intel Core i7-9750H CPU, Nvidia’s RTX 2070 graphics chip, 32GB of RAM, and a 512GB SSD. Its IPS display is 1080p resolution and has a 144Hz refresh rate. It usually costs $1,500, but you can save $300 today. And for $1,200, you’re getting a some pretty good specs.

While it’s technically not included in today’s big Amazon sale on PC components, the excellent Logitech G502 Lightspeed wireless gaming mouse is $20 off today. It’s usually $150, which is certainly not cheap for a mouse. But if you’re looking for one that is more customizable and comfortable than most, consider this one.

Best Buy is hosting a few good deals on Ring home security products. Ring’s Video Doorbell Pro usually costs $250 alone, but you can get it bundled with the Chime Pro device (that doubles as an extender to give your doorbell better Wi-Fi signal) for $190. Two things to note with this deal: this doorbell works only with a wired connection, so it’s a good replacement for an existing doorbell with wiring already set up. Secondly, you’ll need to sign in with your Best Buy account (it’s free to sign up) to get the deal.
