- Ecotones Duet Sleep Sound Machine for $71
Place it next to your bed, plug it in, turn it on, and it listens for ambient sounds such as street noise, construction, trains, car horns, noisy roommate, etc.
It does not spit out white noise, instead it plays your choice of rain, wind, waves, fireplace, etc., and adjusts the audio pitch to drown out noises it hears, effectively drowning out sounds.
It's a device we tried, and vouch that it works great and we recommend it for city apartments where noises can disrupt sleep.
Most stores sell it for around $80 to $100.
It is currently on sale for $72.

If you are looking for a tablet for doing basic Internet browsing, shopping, reading, watching movies, and playing games, the Kindle Fire is a good alternative to the more expensive iPad.
If you are looking to read books (no movie watching, no playing games, no Internet browsing), the regular Amazon Kindle for $59 is a hot deal.
We have one, and it is fantastic.
It is very lightweight, and uses a true LED display (they call it E-ink Display) so it produces no glare and uses almost no power.
The problem with many tablets is their glass display (including the Kindle Fire and iPad).
Not only are regular tablets very difficult to use outside during the day, it is not healthy for your eyes to stare at a bright screen for long periods of time (computer screens, tablets, and mobile phones) especially in dark rooms which can lead to serious eye damage.
The regular Kindle has a plastic display which produces no glare and therefore does not produce eyestrain like most tablets can.
So if you like to read, we highly recommend the regular Kindle.

The reviews are decent, not great, but could be useful for someone who wants their tablet to access photos and videos that are stored on a memory card.

- Bosch Digital Distance Measurer for $63 (expired)
Bosch (DLR130K) Digital Distance Measurer Kit for $63 today only.
Usually sells for around $79.
The device is small (4 inches tall and 5 ounces in weight), and designed to measure length, area, and volume in a range of 2-inch to 130-feet, with an accuracy within 1/16th of an inch.
It uses four AAA batteries (included), and covered by a 3-year Bosch warranty.
As one reviewer writes, it does not completely replace a tape measure, for example there is no quick, convenient way to hook to the edge of a board, but it can quickly take measurements in places where a tape measure cannot.
Overall, we feel this is a good value for someone interested in doing some home projects such as measuring where furniture and picture frames would go.
- PNY 128GB USB Flash Drive $41 after rebate (expired)
PNY 128GB Classic Attache USB Flash Drive (model P-FD128CLCAP-GES3) for $56 after shipping fee, and a $15 mail-in rebate is available.
This deal expires today.
According to a review, it reads and writes around 23 and 14 MBytes/sec, meaning it can take about 3.5 hours to copy 128GB of data onto this drive, and about 2.25 hours to copy all the data from this drive.
Considering the large 128GB capacity, it seems acceptable to take so long to copy.
Assuming you take the time to carefully submit the rebate, and assuming the rebate check comes, this is a great deal at about 32¢/GB.
Logitech K310 Washable Keyboard for $24 (normally $35).
You can wash the keyboard in your sink, and could be very useful on a shared PC that collects dirt and germs from a lot of different hands.
Just a thought, but if you bought 2, one could be in use while the other could be soaking, washing, and drying.

Gigabyte BRIX, Mini Desktop PC:
Gigabyte makes some very tiny PCs (smaller than the size of a brick) that are so small, they can be mounted to on the back of a HDTV.
They are real PCs that consume very little electricity, have built-in Wifi, built-in HD graphics card, capable of 16GB of memory and a mSATA drive, and include a VESA Mounting Bracket for mounting on the back of a standard flat-panel HDTV.
They would be perfect as a home theater PC, or as a simple desktop attached to the back of a monitor or HDTV that would take up almost no space.
Basically, this can turn an old HDTV into a fully functional PC as low-profile as an iMac.
They have HDMI output, two USB3.0 ports, and Gigabit Ethernet ports.
They are barebones PC, meaning you must add your own DDR3 memory (up to 2 DDR3 modules), and include no keyboard, no mouse, no drive, and no operating system.
You can either buy and install a mSATA drive, or install an operating system on bootable a USB flash drive.
You can buy a pair of G.Skill 4GB DDR3 memory modules (8GB total) for $58 with code 0910BTS61 or for $61 with code EMCXLWV44 .
mSATA drives cost $75 for 64GB (85¢/GB) and $96 for 128GB (75¢/GB), or use a USB flash drive.
The Brix has two USB3.0 ports, so you could use one for a USB flash drive and the other for a wireless keyboard & mouse adapter or a Bluetooth adapter.
A Kinivo Bluetooth 4.0 Adapter would go for about $15 (specs), and would let you control the PC with a Bluetooth keyboard, Bluetooth mouse, a Bluetooth remote control, or possibly even a Bluetooth control app on your phone or tablet (when one comes out).
Here are some positive reviews of an older Gigabyte Brix model, and an in-depth review by TechSpot, and another review.
If you buy the BRIX i5 model for $340, a 128GB mSATA SSD for $96, 8GB of memory for $58, and a Bluetooth adapter for $15, you're looking at a total cost of about $509 for a tiny PC with 128GB SSD that attaches to the back of one of your TVs or monitors.
Note that Gigabyte will soon release a new BRIX with 4th Generation Intel CPU and Iris Pro Graphics, designed to be used as both a home theater PC and a gaming PC.
The new Brix should come out in November or December, and start at about $500.
Onkyo makes some of the best quality consumer A/V Receivers (in our opinion) and this Receiver usually sells for at least $800.
This deal is being offered by Huppins, the same company that owns OneCall.com, and is one of the oldest audio/video/photo retailers in the US.
Wifi and Bluetooth adapters are sold separately.
Bluetooth lets you play music from your phone or tablet wirelessly through the receiver.
