    Logitech Z313 2.1 speakers $15

    How do you guys like the ultrawides for gaming?

    I bought it for $840 and 3 weeks later it dropped to $750 on amazon. This was August. It seems to have went back up in price. Gaming wise, I love it, but I honestly only play one game (Diablo 3). The big thing that I miss is being able to split the screen into 2 monitors. I still have this...

    Post Your Workstations 2015

    The main reason I got it is because I have he same one at work, and didn't like jumping between split and not split. I absolutely love the mouse. I wouldn't say the keyboard is anything special though.

    Udemy - $20 courses

    You can buy as many of the $19 courses that you want during the special. You get access to them for life, so you can do them when ever you want, or redo them as a refresher later. I bit on one, and they immediately sent me a 75% off next purchase coupon.

    $230 used xbox one

    This is tempting, but why did they take away media extender from the Xbox one? That is the majority of what I use my 360 for nowadays.

    "Half Owner" OF Facebook Has Five More Lawyers

    To be fair he, at age 26, agreed to the "Giving Pledge" with Gates and Buffett. Which agrees to give atleast 50% of his worth away to charities.

    Sony PS3 - 320GB Refurb - $219

    Good deal if you didn't get the black friday bundle, or if you had no use for the 2 free games.

    What do you use your tablet for?

    I have been tempted, but like you I no longer have netflix. I was leaching off my parents since they only used it for the disk in mail. Since netflix changed their subscriptions, I canceled their streaming capabilities to save them money. From what I have read though, it still has some bugs...
