Amazon has taken care of lots of oxygen in the room offers last week from Prime Day. However, there are some goodies and gadgets that are even cheaper this week than they were back then. If you are looking for a new robot vacuum cleaner, keyboard or even a big TV, we have some goodies for you.

Check out our guide to the best TVs for more recommendations.
The TCL 6 series (9/10, WIRED recommendations) is our top choice among all the televisions we’ve tested. It uses quantum dot technology to provide bright, vivid colors as well as local dimming to make dark colors as dark as possible. It also includes the Roku interface, one of our favorite streaming interfaces. This is one of the lowest prices we have tracked.
Another TCL series, the 4 series, is at the lower end of the TCL lineup, but over the years, the technology we liked about the high-end models has declined. This super-affordable TV still includes a 4K HDR panel, a Roku interface, and a simple voice-control remote. If you’re on a tight budget it’s good value for money.
This is our pick for the nicest TV we’ve tried. It comes with premium Sony processing in a beautiful OLED panel for absolutely stunning visuals. It also comes with built-in Android TV which, like Smart TV operating systems, is one of the easier to use.
Take care of RGB LEDs and competitive keyboard performance? Apex 7 TKL will adapt to your needs. It has very satisfying, clickable switches, a sturdy aluminum frame, and an OLED display that can show system alerts or in-game information. It is also paired with SteelSeries’s powerful customization software, which allows you to modify individual keys, record macros, and even program LEDs to respond to the games you play.
The power and customization of gaming peripherals make them great for office work – if they don’t have such exaggerated designs. Fortunately, the Logitech G513 Carbon, which is our pick for the best mechanical keyboard for home offices, has a more discreet design but retains handy features like customizable keys, tasteful LED lights, and a choice of several types of switches.
If you’d rather your keyboard be as loud and ostentatious as possible, this Roccat Vulcan 121 is one of our favorite keyboards because it knows exactly what is this. And it’s loud. WIRED reviewer Jaina Gray says writing with WIRED is like “writing a thunderstorm.”
For years, I have recommended using gaming peripherals for regular work, and the Logitech G915 keyboard is one of my favorites for that very reason. It has a low-profile aluminum frame and a stylish design that will fit in any studio, but its additional programmable keys and macro tools make it easy to automate tasks, especially in creative programs like Adobe Photoshop, Premiere or Blender.

The Pixel 6A will officially launch on July 28, and WIRED review editor Julian Chokkattu says it’s the best phone for the money (8/10, recommends WIRED). It comes with a bright AMOLED screen, all-day battery life, a great camera and a stylish design. Google has a pre-sale promotion where you can get your own Pixel Buds A-Series (8/10, WIRED Recommends) for free with your Pixel 6A order. These buds instantly connect to many Android phones, have IP4X water resistance and Google Assistant integration. They usually cost $ 100, so it’s a great deal if you’re looking for a new phone and new wireless earbuds.
This Roborock robot vacuum cleaner is our overall favorite. It comes with a self-emptying container so you don’t have to empty your robot as often, and an impressive battery life. It can even map large areas of your home so it will learn exactly how to best clean the space. It stores up to four separate maps so you can move it from one floor to another, and you can even control it with Siri, Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa.
Your pets leave a huge mess in the house, but don’t worry! This RoboVac by Eufy features twin turbines that combine to provide tremendous suction power, so no matter how much dog hair or other debris is in your home, this robot can pick it up.
