Greetings, Arsians! Courtesy of our friends at TechBargains, we have another round of deals to share. Today's list is led by a deal on Samsung's Gear VR headset, which is down to $30 at Verizon. That's a big drop from its usual $100-130 price range.
This particular model won't fit the Galaxy Note 8—though the model that does is down to $50 itself—but it will work with most other flagship Galaxy phones from the past few years, this year's Galaxy S9 included. It doesn't support any non-Samsung phones, sadly, but for a mobile VR headset, the Oculus-powered Gear VR tends to have a stronger selection of apps than Google's competing Daydream View headset, and it comes with a motion controller for a little extra precision. Just don't expect it to be on the Oculus Go's level in terms of horsepower.
If you're not interested in VR, though, we also have deals on several gaming PCs, portable batteries, Sonos speakers, 4K TVs, monitors, and much more. Take a look for yourself below.

After announcing a $78,000 performance version of the Tesla Model 3 on Saturday night, Tesla CEO Elon Musk again took to Twitter over the weekend to say that it may be months more before customers will be able to buy a base-price Model 3. Thus far, all Model 3s delivered have been $49,000 models, according to The New York Times. On top of that, Consumer Reports released a review of the Model 3 that pointed out issues with its braking. Musk admitted the issues on Monday and said he believes they could be fixed with a firmware update.
On Sunday, the CEO tried to explain why people who want base-price Model 3s are still waiting. "With production, 1st you need to achieve target rate & then smooth out flow to achieve target cost. Shipping min cost Model 3 right away wd cause Tesla to lose money & die. Need 3 to 6 months after 5k/wk to ship $35k Tesla & live," Musk tweeted.
The $35,000 Model 3 has long been billed as a more affordable take on a luxury brand. The lower price would popularize electric vehicles (EVs) among more middle-class consumers, and promises of high-volume purchases have kept investors optimistic. Still, Tesla has struggled to push out significant numbers of Model 3s due to bottlenecks in the manufacturing process.
