Great deal. Spent ~$50 more on it like a month or 2 ago

Have you used it? Works well I hope?

The lightning deal was $158. Now the link goes to a used one...

Got it for family member for bday. I'll have to ask them how it's going. I think the reviews for it are pretty good overall.

Here it is. All Fire TV devices are eligible for Sling credit. 

Amazon smart plugs were gone by the time I made it home to Alexa. :kicksrock:Alexa, I hear you calling, but I can't come home right now......

No surprise to see Amazon pimping ancestry DNA testing in their bid to take over the world.

  • Dog bully sticks
  • A 4-pack laser tag gun-only set for $37
  • Some cleaner Wirecutter recommended
  • Nat Geo watching guide - we have some bird feeders outside our kitchen window and we all enjoy the birds
  • Amazon basics T-shirt for the wife - to see if they're any good

Got a ring pro / echo on a presale.  Setup was a bit tricky as i have a brick house and my builder used an electric box for the door bell.  Had to get s cover from Lowe's which was no big deal.  What is a big deal is that it is horizontal and not vertical.  What's worse is that it's at a 90 degree angle to my door so you can't see very much.  I guess that is my fault for not thinking ahead.  

But the app, wow... that thing sucks.  I've been testing it and several times when i try to watch the front door, either thru alerts or to try, and it doesn't load.

Basically, I'm thinking about selling mine.

Amazon's site UI is terrible every day but it's even worse on Prime Day.  Sale pages are cluttered with tons of junk to scroll through before a random matrix of items relevant in only the broadest sense.  Back navigation is problematic.

If you're searching for an item by description, search results mix Prime Day sale items with the usual odd Amazon brands.

Mine works great when I check the motion and ring alerts.  Check your wifi signal strength.  It could be causing your problem.

I have the same problem. Doesn’t work at the front door. Pool area one works. My WiFi is super fast too.

My son wants a gaming chair (his current chair is pretty bad, so he needs something new)

Been looking at a few deals but I have no idea what I am looking for.  Any recommendations?  Thanks

I don't know much about gaming chairs, but did see this.

Not the most earth-shattering purchase, but This was recommended by someone over in the Grilling & Smoking thread. I bought a can a month or so ago for $10 and was amazed at how well it cleaned up grill parts. Stuff that wouldn't scrape off with steel wool or a scraper rubbed off on my fingers when I picked them up after being sprayed and letting it sit for a couple hours.  6 cans for $25 on the Prime deal.

i have some ring cameras that run fine on my front door and garage door.  i wanted to get a ring doorbell but i dont think it will fit on the narrow piece of wood where my doorbell is located.  starting to think its probably not worth it and will also look terrible.

Anybody know of good wireless, Bluetooth headphones suitable for running, etc.? Any I have tried don't stay connected to my Samsung Galaxy when I'm using Spotify.

I bought these after 2 sets of $100 headphones crapped out, one of them being Beats by Dre. Been much better sound and battery life, no issues with disconnecting.

I thought this year's Prime Day was better than past.  It seemed past years were Kindle and Alexa devices plus all the USB batteries you could eat.   Of course not everything on the site is going to be discounted, but I picked up a bunch of things that I would normally buy every 3 to 6 months with almost all of it discounted and getting 6% off with the Prime card was the cherry on top.

I thought about it, more because I hate my doorbell because my dog goes nuts. My wife and I both work from home so honestly, we don’t really need it. That garage door closer would be better, but again, I don’t really need it. Kid going to college in 1 month, think I need to err on the don’t get things you don’t need. $5 smart plugs, need and nice that my wife has another Amazon account so I got two for $10. My Christmas lights one are a great thing but the Echo Show doesn’t like them during non-Christmas. It’s probably because of the two accounts but the setup with another app then Alexa sucked. These should be right in Alexa app.

I did get Quaker Oatmeal packs for cheaper than Costco and the Costco one includes the Cinnamon and Apple, which aren’t as good. I think my wife was looking at dorm stuff for my oldest too. Not sure what she got.

Well damn, so much for not buying much. I got the Meshforce Mesh Router. With 6% on Amazon Visa, it’s about $150 instead of $199. I like my router but the extension nodes are crap and just don’t work that well. It’s not truly built as a mesh network and I have a third floor. I’m just tired of the kids telling me the WiFi is not great. The router is in my office, so it’s great for me.

That is really appealing.  Was having wifi issues in my new house for a bit, but it got better once I was using a firestick on the TV further away.

The Firesticks are actually pretty solid. I had no issues with that, seems more to be phones and laptops that have issues.

Is there a reason you went with the Meshforce and not the Eero?  Was just looking at these.

Looking at wireless printers, too.  Anybody have one they actually like?  Reading printer reviews is brutal.

I bought a brother laser printer a few months ago.  I think it is this one.  I am not at home to see the actual model, but it looks just like this.  It has been great so far.

I personally would avoid Epson, many of their printers do not print in black and white when you run out of color ink.  I am not very impressed with the print quality of ours either, we have an Epson XP-830.

I've had great luck with Brother printers. Never been an inkjet person and have always went with toner. (Last longer and you can buy secondhand toner replacements for like $10-15).

Bought this one a couple years ago. https://www.amazon.com/Brother-MFC-L2685DW-Monochrome-Wireless-Networking/dp/B07CYXHSYV

I bought Asus' for my daughters in middle school. Five plus years of consistant teenage use(UTube, Netflix, google docs etc.) and they have been great. My oldest just graduated and her charging port is getting to be a pain, cord has to be just so for it to work, so I bought her this one yesterday for $180 to take to college. My Younger daughters old one is still fine for her, no problems. Offered to get my Oldest a MacBook Air but she prefers the chromebook, yay practicality :thumbup:

Without looking, it could be that none of them are "great."  Chromebooks are built to internet.  That's it.  If it has speakers and a web cam and two usb ports, you're golden. 

I bought an Acer refurb that my daughter has been very happy with.  Here's the exact one that's a couple years old now.  Can't beat the price, imo.

Prime got me for two more pairs of Haggar Cool 18 dress pants.  My favorite pants for work.  Just bought some for $35 in March, but they are $22 today.  

Not seeing much else, but don't really need anything right now either.

Anybody with Bluetooth earbud experience...specifically Altec Lansing MZX635?  I've been thinking about getting a pair.  These have some mixed reviews, but at only $20, I may take a chance...   

ETA...lol...in the time it took me to post this, the deal filled up and the price jumped to $32.70.

I got a pair of these, which are good for walking. Can't testify for running as my knees are trash . But no problems otherwise. Battery lasts a couple hours and sound is as you would expect from the price.bluetooth

Come to find out, it does not have to be a Chromebook. It can be a Windows laptop as well. Ugh.

Bought a lot more this year than previous years. They were basically giving away many of their products and lots of credits were available this year. Was hoping they'd have some Warehouse deals but doesn't look like it. Wound up getting:

3 FIresticks

75' TCL

Ring Pro doorbell + Echo Dot

Smart Plug + Echo Dot

Portable device/phone charger

Echo Show 5 

Bunch of cat treats

Gonna bet Sling subscription #s go skyrocketing up soon :lol:
