There are many ways to start your weekend off right and, unsurprisingly, one of our favorites here on Verge Deals is with some high quality tech deals. The first turn off is the Google Nest Wifi mesh router system. Wellbots has a few different configurations of the Nest Wifi available with special discounts, including: the standalone router for only $119 ($50 off if you use code 50VERGE at checkout), the router and an extra point to extend the mesh network for $189 ($80 off with code 80VERGE), and the router plus two points for $249 ($100 off with code 100VERG†
The important thing here is to choose the right setup for your home, depending on how much space you need. The Nest Wifi router itself can accommodate up to 2,200 square feet, and adding just one point to the mix expands that to 3,800. A house with a tricky layout or thicker walls can benefit from a few points to expand the mesh network, even if it’s not a huge space. There’s another benefit to adding a point to the equation: each acts as a smart speaker for music playback, podcasts, and access to the Google Assistant. So when it comes to choosing which of these Wi-Fi 5 compatible setups is right for you, consider the factors of coverage, convenience, and cost that are right for you. Read our review.
There’s a lot going on on 1Password’s subscription services. New customers can sign up for a year of 1Password password management service and get 50 percent discount on an individual subscription or 50 percent discount on a family subscription† Both are billed annually, with the family plan especially good value if you need more than one account.
The individual subscription agreement gives you one personal account with access on unlimited devices that cost only $17.94 the first year service, as opposed to the regular $36. As for the family plan, you get five accounts for $30 for the first year instead of the usual $60. We’ve seen these 1Password deals go as low as 60 percent before, so while this one isn’t the very best, it comes pretty close. If you want to protect your personal information with an easy way to generate secure passwords (and we all are), this is a good way to go.
If you have an Xbox Series X or Series S and you like to have a lot of games installed at once, their built-in storage can feel a lot more limited than it might initially seem on paper. Many AAA titles are 60 GB or more each, some like Call of Duty Warzone takes up almost 100 GB on its own. Yes you can plug in a USB hard drive and load some games to the cold storage, but they should go back to the internal SSD when it’s time to play.
So if you really want more storage, Seagate’s 2TB Xbox Expansion Card, which usually costs $399.99, is currently discounted to $380.90 at Amazon† I know that’s still a pretty penny for 2,000 GB (or about 21 extra copies of) Call of Duty Warzone), but these little expansion cards rarely go on sale. They’re also just as fast as the internal storage of the Xbox Series X and S, and they plug into the back of the console – so there’s no unsightly USB cable and disc drive next to your Xbox.
Planning a fun getaway or excursion for the upcoming Memorial Day Weekend vacation? If you want something to help you capture memories while doing fun, outdoor activities, the GoPro Hero 10 Black with an extra battery and a dual battery charger costs $399.99 at Amazon.
This is the latest action camera from GoPro and while it looks a lot like the previous Hero 9, it is much faster thanks to the GP2 processor. The Hero 10 Black captures up to 5.3K 60fps footage and even 120fps slow-mo at 4K resolution. It also retains that screen on the front of its predecessor, so it’s much easier to frame your shot when mounting the camera on something like a bicycle. One of the few downsides to the Hero 10 is its mediocre battery life, but that’s one of the reasons this deal is so great – for around $400 you get an extra battery included, as well as a dual charger to charge both packs with ease. keep track – on and done.
