Greetings, Arsians! Courtesy of our friends at TechBargains, we have another round of deals to share. Today’s list is headlined by a deal on Google’s latest Daydream View virtual reality headset, the charcoal model of which is down to $30 at Verizon. That’s a new low.

Ars went over the pros and cons of the Daydream View the last time the device received a big price cut, but here’s the short version: Google’s headset doesn’t have the same level of app and game support as its closest rival, Samsung’s Oculus-powered Gear VR. However, it’s generally more comfortable to wear and works with more Android phones, including Samsung’s own Galaxy S9.

In any case, this is still a mobile VR headset, which means you get neither the fuller motion tracking nor the more fleshed-out experiences of pricier headsets. And since the whole thing is still powered by your smartphone, the screen quality will be serviceable more than spectacular, and you won’t get the total untethering of a device like the Oculus Go. Still, while there’s always a chance Google will introduce a new Daydream headset later this year, for $30 this is a solid entry point for those looking to dip their toes into VR for the first time.

If VR just isn’t your thing, though, we also have deals on Apple’s AirPods and Apple Watch Series 3, Dell laptops and monitors, Roku’s Streaming Stick+, and more. Have a look for yourself below.
