It has LG’s cinema screen design that is capable of showing four desktops at a time for “maximum productivity.” Rated 4.4/5 stars.

expiredMake the leap to 4K w/ Dell’s 27-inch LED Ultra HD Monitor for $450 shipped (Reg. $500+)

Update (5/19 3:30pm): Best Buy’s official eBay Store has the LG 27-inch FreeSync 4K Ultra HD Monitor w/ HDMI input (model 27UD68) for $399.99 shipped (Reg. $500). Also available direct

It’s time to upgrade your setup to a 4K display. You’ve been holding out for one reason or another, but today’s the day. Adorama’s eBay Storefront has the Dell 27-inch 4K LED Monitor (model P2715Q) on sale for $449.99 shipped. That’s good for 36% off the original price and $40-$100 less than most online retailers including Amazon.

Why am I so hyped about this monitor? It’s the one that I use every day. The 27-inch display gives plenty of room to work with a 3840 x 2160 resolution. I personally have it in portrait orientation to save a little desk space, which is particularly handy for stacking windows together. It’s loaded with features as well, including DisplayPort 1.2 and multiple USB 3.0 ports (including one powered). Rated 4.1/5 stars by over 550 Amazon customers.

Step up to an “immersive” viewing experience with this curved Dell monitor. It is capable of displaying full 1080p resolutions at 60Hz with two HDMI inputs plus VGA. Additional features include two built-in 9W speakers and an “ultra-slim” design. Rated 4.6/5 stars.

Apple users should grab a Thunderbolt to HDMI cable to round out your setup.

expiredDaily Deals: GreenWorks 80V 21-inch Pro Electric Cordless Lawn Mower $233, Samsung 27-inch LED 1080p Monitor $190, more

In today’s Daily Deals, we have Amazon Gold Box up to 61% off Greenworks 80V Tools and batteries. If you’ve considered turning your lawn equipment to electric, today’s the day. Electric vs. gas is quieter, has little vibration, doesn’t stink, has no fire risk or poisoning risk, is much lighter, charges cleanly and obviously requires no Oil/Gas mixing/pouring…oh and you aren’t being a douchebag to the environment.

80V is about double or quadruple the standard 20V or 40V power of normal electric lawn equipment and is usually extremely expensive (think of this as the Tesla of garden tooling). Our standout pick here is the GreenWorks 80V 21-Inch Cordless Lawn Mower (Charger not Included) for $232.60 shipped. This is a beast of an electric motor that will keep up with a gas motor and clearly beat it in many situations.  You have a choice between 2Ah ($85) and 4Ah batteries ($194) and charger ($45) sold separately, also on sale. 

It features:

  • Up to 60 minutes of run time with fully charged 4AH battery – battery not included
  • DigiPro brushless motors are more reliable and delivers gas equivalent performance
  • Smart-Cut Technology improves performance and extends run-time
  • 21-inch steel deck with 3-in-1 design for mulch, side discharge or rear bag capability
  • Battery and charger sold separately, compatible battery and charger models GBA80200, GBA80400 and GCH8040

The mower is rated 4.4/5 stars from over 50 Amazon shoppers.

There are other Pro level 80V electric lawn equipment on sale at Amazon including a ChainSaw ($137), HedgeTrimmer ($115), String Trimmer ($119) and Leaf Blower ($68). Each of these requires at least one of the 2Ah ($85) and 4Ah batteries ($194) and charger ($45). For those thinking ahead an 80V Snowblower is $130.

Again, our recommendation for those transitioning to electric yard products is buy one of each battery and whatever lawn equipment you need so that you can switch batteries between the tools. Each battery lasts an hour and can be charged within an hour so you can use it constantly. I personally have a Greenworks lawnmower, chainsaw and corded snowblower which all work well. Batteries switch between products easily – you are buying into the ecosystem.

Apple today started offering a couple new models of its latest generation iMac through its refurbished online store. Previously Apple was offering refurbished units of the new 21.5-inch iMac only, but we hadn’t seen any 27-inch models hit yet, which we assumed was likely due to yield issues and significant delays experienced in the iMac’s first few months of launch. Today Apple has finally started offering both the entry level 27-inch iMac and the higher end iMac, in addition to a couple of BTO models. However, taking tax into account, you might be about to score a new one for around the same price… expand full story
