expiredAmazon Gold Box – up to 50% off Logitech iPad gear: Multi-Device Bluetooth Keyboard $37 (Reg. $50), more

Today only, as its Gold Box Deal of the Day, Amazon offers up to 50% off select Logitech iPad accessories.

The majority of today’s offerings are Bluetooth keyboard solutions, but there are a couple regular cases thrown in as well. Prime members (free trial) will receive free 2-day shipping on all items. All other buyers will need to spend $35 or more to dodge shipping costs.

The top deal from this promo is the Logitech K480 Bluetooth Multi-Device Keyboard (shown above) in white for $39.99 shipped or black for $36.79 shipped. That’s upwards of 26% off its list price of $50 and the best deal we’ve seen on Amazon. Back in January it was a bit cheaper, but that deal required in-store pickup at Office Depot, sold out in less than an hour and was only for the black version. It features a built-in stand for your iPhone or iPad and supports fast-switching between 3 different devices. 360 Amazon reviewers rate it 4.3 out of 5 stars.

Most of the time, headphones serve as a necessary inconvenience. You need them to listen to your music, favorite podcasts, and to keep whatever it is you choose to listen to in your ears instead of broadcast out loud. But there’s always a knot to be undone and a kink to be worked out. There’s no need to deal with that when you have the Wireless Bluetooth Cloud Buds.

The only cord on these headphones is the one that keeps the buds connected. Everything else done without wires. There’s nothing to plug in, and you can have 30 feet of untethered movement between you and your device while still getting crystal clear music.

For just $29.99—72% off the retail price—you’ll want to grab these great buds while you can.

Position your iPad as a secondary monitor or anywhere else w/ Twelve South HoverBar 3: $75 shipped (Reg. $100)

Amazon offers the Twelve South HoverBar 3 for $74.99 with free shipping, which is 25% below its regular price and the best deal we’ve ever seen.

Features include:

  • HoverBar clamps almost anywhere for adjustable hands-free use of your iPad
  • Heavy duty yet delicate clamp secures to any surface up to 1-inch thick 
  • Creates a hands-free kitchen mount or desktop workstation with no install required
  • Includes extra kickstand that creates a handy tabletop display
  • Includes Fit Clips for iPad Air, iPad mini and iPad (2nd – 4th generation)

Combo it with Duet for iOS and you’ll have a killer dual monitor setup.

Our conclusion after reviewing the Hoverbar 3:

For most people, it’s kind of a luxury item. It’s not that difficult to use an existing or cheaper stand to position the iPad roughly where you want it on a desk or kitchen worktop, and not too great a hardship to hold it while watching movies or reading books in bed.

But I have to say that within a very short time, I came to rely on it. The ability to place the iPad exactly where you want it, and to indulge in the sheer laziness of having it hover above the pillow in bed, is very appealing.

My only minor gripe is that the hex-nut system for applying the clamp means it’s not an instant job to move it from one place to the other. It’s not difficult, but some kind of flip-handle clamp would be great. But if you mostly expect to use it on one place, and just need to push it out of the way the rest of the time, leaving the clamp in place, it’s highly recommended.

Twelve South makes really great accessories for Apple products, but if you’re looking to save even more money then you could go with this similar iPad mount from Taotronics for $35.99.

Most iPad accessory makers work tirelessly to design a product that echoes Apple’s signature design. Griffin and Rail Yard Studios’ Rail Artifact Stand does the opposite. Instead of melting away during use, its one of a kind design not only stands out, but in my opinion, steals the spotlight. Just as its name indicates, the Rail Artifact Stand is made from authentic early 1900’s railroad pieces. From pitted steel to worn edges, every stand shows its history in a unique way… expand full story
