expiredAmazon Gold Box–Everything for your home computer network: SSDs from $40, NAS from $159, Wifi Range Extenders from $33

Click to enlarge

If you been looking to upgrade your home computers or network, today’s Amazon Gold Box is bound to have some deals for you. You can find nearly 5 star rated SATA 3 SSDs from Transcend and PNY in 128GB-480GB sizes range from $39.99-$124.99. Some match for all time lows.

If you are want to up your NAS game, you can pick up a highly-rated 6TB Internal Seagate Hard Drives for $214.99/ea. Where to put them? I love this QNAP TAS idea of adding a Streamer with Remote Keyboard to their NASes allowing you an end to end solution for putting large amounts of videos on your TVs. At $159/$259 for 1/2 drive bays and 4/5 star ratings you really can’t go wrong here.

If you want a monster NAS, Western Digital NAS  are $362.99 for 8TB or $438.99 for 12TB. These are no brainer prices and frankly cost less than the bare drives inside them. If you have a superior Synology NAS, you could buy this 12TB WD NAS, rip out the drives and still be ahead.

For those looking to up their networking game, Amazon offers the DD-WRT compatible Linksys WRT1900ACS Dual Band router in their classic Blue enclosure. This is basically one of the best  routers out there at its lowest price ever. Does your current router need to reach further out? Want to steam music while you garden or mow your yard? Pick up one of two TP-Link AC Range extenders from $32.99-$79.99. Or, if you want to extend your Ethernet network over your powerlines, nab this D-Link AV2 2000 Gigabit extender for $59.99. Speaking of D-Link Gigabit, I don’t recall a good 24-port Gigabit hub being less than $65. Today’s the day.

There are some other knick knacks inside today’s Goldbox as well starting at just $4. Check out everything.

We can’t have it all. Apple’s ultra-thin MacBooks are off-the-charts beautiful (ya, I’m a fanboy), but that thinness comes with sacrifices in connectivity options. None of Apple’s current laptops (aside from the ancient 13-inch regular MacBook Pro) have an Ethernet port, while every model only gets 2 USB ports.

aukey-ethernet-usb-hub-sizeThis Aukey 3-Port USB 3 Hub with 10/100/1000 Gigabit Ethernet usually sells for at least $19.99 on Amazon. Use coupon code CBH15PRO to drop your final price down to $15.99 Prime shipped.

Slip it into your travel bag or keep it on your office shelf and you’ll be able to get a hardwired internet connection or connect more USB devices to your Mac within seconds. Since it needs a USB port on your MacBook to connect, it’ll only add an extra 2 USB 3.0 ports to your workflow even though it has 3 ports. It’s rated 4.8 out of 5 stars and includes an 18-month warranty.

If you’re lucky enough to have a new 12-inch MacBook you’ll need a USB-C adapter to use this hub.
