New Release: LG UltraGear 48GP900-B 48-inch 4K HDR OLED Gaming Monitor for $1298.87
For those of you who love LG OLED TVs (for good reason) but don’t like the idea of using a TV for a computer monitor, now there’s an answer. LG has released its first UltraGear OLED gaming monitor. At first glance, the 48GP900 with its 48-inch LG WOLED 10-bit color HDR display looks very similar to the 48-inch LG C1 OLED TV. The panel is very similar, but there are a few key differences. Instead of the semi-gloss coating found on the OLED TV, the 48GP900 features a low-reflection anti-reflective coating that is arguably better suited for close monitor use. It also has DisplayPort connectivity and lacks the built-in Smart TV interface. It picks up HDMI 2.1 ports with 4K @ 120Hz compatibility for PS5 and Xbox Series X owners, as well as VRR and G-SYNC support, but the 120Hz refresh rate can be overclocked to 138Hz when is used as a PC monitor. Last and certainly least important of all, there’s a subtle RGB backlight on the back of the monitor which isn’t present on OLED TVs. It’s one of the best gaming monitors you’ll find on the market right now.

It features an A12 Bionic processor that improves graphics performance, video decoding and audio processing and delivers high frame rate HDR with Dolby Vision. It also includes a new Apple TV remote. The overall build quality is better than before, but the biggest improvements are a 5-way touchpad, mute button, and dedicated power button that works for your TV, receiver, and Apple TV.

In real-world benchmarks, the Legion 5 Pro is one of the best performing gaming laptops on the market. It also looks more like a standard laptop, you might want to choose that over the Crosshair if you’re not into the gamer aesthetic.
XPG S70 1TB M.2 SSD with heatsink for $109.99
The XPG Gammix S70 Blade is the cheapest 1TB PS5 compatible SSD available today. Just because it’s the cheapest doesn’t mean it’s the slowest. In fact, the S70 is actually one of the fastest SSDs available with transfer rates of up to 7,400MB/s. It’s on par with the likes of the WD Black SN850, Samsung 980 Pro, or the Seagate Firecude 530.

New Apple AirPods Pro for $179.99
The current-generation Apple AirPods Pro are one of the best “truly wireless” headphones you’ll find, especially at this price. “Truly wireless” headphones have no wires; even the headphones aren’t wired to each other. In addition to excellent sound quality, AirPods Pro are the only AirPods with active noise cancellation technology. That, combined with the inherent nature of in-ear headphones, means the AirPods Pro will offer better noise isolation than over-ear headphones like the Bose QuietComfort or Sony WH1000XM5. If you’re thinking of getting a pair of new AirPods, we highly recommend jumping on this particular model.
