How did I choose?

How did I choose these products for this curated list for the perfect home office? A mixture of serendipity, personal preferences but also looking at the best selling products on Amazon, as well as the ones offering the best value for money. 

There's just a few hours left before Amazon Prime Day 2023 ends so to help you maximize that time, I've put together a list of the best deals for those looking to invest in - or enhance - their home office setup.

With all of us working from home at least some of the week, it's important we have a comfortable and professional environment. So it's crucial we make the right buying decisions. 

That said, be sure you don't waste too much  time thinking though, as some of these fantastic deals won't be around for long because (a) Prime Day is coming to a close soon (b) stocks are rapidly dwindling (c) some vendors are already putting their prices up (something that's unfortunately quite common).

There's no hard and fast rule, nothing fancy, just a bit of personal and human touch from someone who works from home full time. Think of it as like the advice that you'd get from a good friend. As always, we hope you find this article useful and welcome your feedback.

The Swift X from Acer is the only laptop in its category and price range to come with a super fast processor (an 8-chip wonder) with 16GB of RAM and a dedicated Nvidia RTX 3050 Ti laptop GPU. Aimed at creatives and businesses, this ultra portable is to paraphrase our colleagues from Laptopmag, <a href="https://www.laptopmag.com/reviews/acer-swift-x-review-peak-performance" data-link-merchant="laptopmag.com"" data-link-merchant="Amazon US"">in a class of its own.

Aha! This is one I recognized as I have <a href="https://www.techradar.com/reviews/samsung-t7-shield-1tb-external-ssd" data-link-merchant="techradar.com"" data-link-merchant="Amazon US"">reviewed it last year. It is fast, rugged, stylish and, for Prime Day at least, reasonably affordable especially with 4TB in tow. Back then, I was underwhelmed by it but a 53% price cut (and the fact that there's almost no rival in the 4TB storage category) changes everything.

As OLED panels go, the Innocn 15A1F is very affordable and delivers a very impressive colour gamut. However, its only 1080p resolution, limited size and 400 nits aren’t enough for true HDR output.

Furmax electric standing desk - $149.99
Great surface

This is Amazon's best selling workstation furniture right now. It has a massive 55" surface space, memory presets, wooden finish options and a durable motor with sturdy, t-shaped feet. Other standing desks look a little more stylish, but that's a compromise with accepting when the Furmax unit is so affordable.

I chose this Plugable laptop docking station because it is one of the very few known brands that combine a Thunderbolt 4 port with the ability to drive four 4K monitors (you never have enough of those) as well as delivering 100W power to your laptop and 2.5G Ethernet. We haven't reviewed them for a while so may be worth checking up with them.


Amazon Prime Day deals: FAQs

When does Amazon Prime Day 2023 end?

You only have until midnight, so don't wait too late to take advantage of a number of great deals on external HDDs.  Amazon Prime Day 2023 ends at midnight on July 12th, so you only have a few hours left to expand your storage capacity and find that deal you’ve been looking for.

Will I need an Amazon Prime Day subscription to get Prime Day portable hard drive deals?

Always! And it’s never been so easy to get your hands on a subscription, either, because you don’t have to spend money – if you haven’t been a member for a year, just sign up for a free thirty-day trial to take advantage of the price drops. And if you’re already a member, you’re golden.

How do I become an Amazon Prime member?

You need to be an Amazon Prime member in order to get access to Prime Day deals, which costs $14.99 per month or $139 for a year. It used to be $12.99 per month or $119 per year but there was a price hike last year.

However, new subscribers can take advantage of the 30-day Amazon Prime free trial to buy the deals. You can only use this if you've never been a member before, so it won't be available if you've used it already or if you've signed up for Amazon Prime in the past.

While on the free trial, you get all the other membership benefits including free shipping, access to Prime Video and much more. Do read our Amazon Prime review for full coverage of what you get as part of a membership. That can help you decide if you want to cancel Amazon Prime once your free trial has ended to avoid being charged the monthly fee.
