The Best Cyber Monday Deals from Amazon, Best Buy, Walmart, Dell, and More

By tracy

For many vendors, Cyber Monday actually starts on Sunday. Many of the deals you’ll find on Cyber Monday are the same deals you saw on Black Friday. That’s not a bad thing; the best Black Friday deals went out of stock quickly on Black Friday, and you might get a second chance to score on those deals on Cyber Monday. In addition to the returning deals, though, there are several deals that were not available at all on Black Friday. Typically these deals are reserved for online shoppers only and they are often even better than the prices you saw on Black Friday. We’ll keep this page updated with all the latest Cyber Monday content today and tomorrow.

Newest Updated Cyber Monday Deals:

  • Nintendo Switch Fortnite Wildcat Bundle (here)
  • 85″ Hisense 4K Android TV for $999.99 (here)
  • Luigi’s Mansion 3 for Switch for $30 (here)
  • 60″onn  4K Roku TV for $288 (here)
  • Proform SR 10.9 Power Tower for $99 (here)
  • Lenovo Legion i7 RTX 2060 Laptop for $949 (here)
  • Gateway i5 RTX 2060 Laptop for $699 (here)

Cyber Monday gaming monitor deals: pixel perfect panel prices

By tracy

Cyber Monday is here! Though we’ve been seeing Cyber Monday gaming monitor deals as early as Saturday, retailers are still flooding the internet with a ton of discounts on monitors and even some 4K TVs for gaming. 

We’ve already seen some wild discounts on great displays that have already sold out, which goes to show that people are rushing to upgrade just in time for games like Cyberpunk 2077, or maybe they managed to track down one of those fancy RTX 30-series GPUs. In any case, we will be adding all the best deals that pop up throughout the day and the rest of the week. 

If you’re paralyzed by indecision, don’t worry. It happens. Use our best gaming monitors to figure out what ‘must-have’ features you actually should consider. The fact that you’ll probably spend the next few years looking at whatever gaming monitor you’re going to buy, it’s key to make sure you’ve allocated a decent budget to get the perfect monitor to complement your gaming rig. 

And a good gaming display will outlast your current PC, and potentially another upgrade or two after that. We’ve had fantastic screens last up to a decade of top quality

Asus ROG Strix XG27UQ Review

By tracy
4K gaming monitors with a 144Hz refresh rate are finally becoming more affordable, and with new graphics cards on the market (though stock is still scarce), the timing couldn’t be better. The Asus ROG Strix XG27UQ brings a lot to the table: high resolution, high frame rate, VESA DisplayHDR 400 certification, and excellent color coverage, but for $799, does it have enough to vanquish the competition?

Asus ROG Strix XG27UQ – Design and Features

The Strix XG27UQ checks just about every box a PC gamer could ask for. It’s 4K and can play games up to 144Hz. It’s built around an IPS panel for improved color accuracy, but also features a 1ms response time for high intensity games, fast enough for competitive esports. It supports HDR, has extra USB ports for connecting your gaming mouse and gaming keyboard, comes with a versatile and unique-looking stand that’s “gamer chic” in all the right ways, and has one of the coolest RGB logos to be found in a gaming monitor. At 27 inches, it’s also in the sweet spot for gaming monitors, allowing you to take in the whole scene without needing to turn your head,

How to Decrypt the Floppy Disk for Operation Chaos – Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War Wiki Guide

By tracy

Last Edited:

Unfortunately, the specific answers for these puzzles can vary wildly and will be unique to you, so we can’t just give you the passcodes and passphrases for the floppy disk. We can, however, tell you how the puzzles work, so you’ll easily be able to solve it for yourself.

Front Page of the Observer

Bell has special training, allowing them to quickly surmise hidden codes. Take a look at the Evidence: Front Page of the Observer, then take note of all the red letters. You’ll need to unscramble them to find the name of a city.

Match the city to one of those listed in the Numbers Station Broadcast to get a four-digit number, which you’ll need to unlock the first prompt of the floppy disk.

OUR EXAMPLE

Looking at the page, the following letters stand out to Bell:

N, M, D, I, A, S, O. Rearranging these letters against the list of names on the Numbers Station Broadcast will give us “Madison,” which has a corresponding code number of 0629. The first solution, for us, is 0629.

The Continuingly Confusing Case of the UK’s Missing PS5s

By tracy

There’s nothing more exciting than opening a brand new console on launch day.

Unless of course, yours turns out to be a bag of cat litter. Or a George Foreman grill, or tins of dog food, or bed sheets, or fitness equipment, or a Himalayan Salt Lamp.

For me, it was an air fryer that sat in my Amazon package, in place of the PS5 I’d ordered from Amazon months previously.

On launch day, excited my PS5 package had finally arrived after an unexpected delay, I hit record on my phone to capture its unboxing. But, after giving the driver the special password from Amazon to ensure a secure delivery, I discovered I had been sent a kitchen appliance instead. The anticlimax was captured on film.

I called Amazon immediately to tell customer service about my mysteriously replaced PS5. They said they would investigate, and that I would hear back in 24-48 hours. Baffled, I tweeted the recording I’d made – and it turned out I was very much not alone.
