What is everyone buying?


If you're having trouble passing the time in quarantine, maybe it'll help to know what other people are buying on Amazon to help with their productivity, or lack thereof. It should come as no surprise that tablets are in high demand, as is portable gaming. The Nintendo Switch for one is hard to find anywhere, partly because China had to stop manufacturing earlier this year due to their pioneering CoVid19 crisis. So without further ado, let's get into the hottest items during quarantine (my own mini review included in the box)!

Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K w/Alexa
This is my favorite streaming device. I have one on each TV around the house. it's fast, it supports just about everything (no iTunes of course) and best of all, it's super cheap! You can find these much cheaper at times, but Amazon is having logistical issues of their own, so don't expect discounts on them until we're post-covid.
Get it at Amazon: $49.99

New Apple iPad 10"
The king of the tablets. Easy to use. Great size. Light. Fast. What else can you ask for? A good price? Ok, you got me. It ain't cheap, but it is the best.
Get it at Amazon: $279.99

Amazon Echo Show 8
Alexa and I have been friends since they were beta testing the original Echo. Since then, there's been multiple Echoes, Echo Shows and Echo Dots around the house. This is their best-bang-for-the-buck version. Not the biggest, but also not the most expensive. How you treat Alexa will also define how well we survive the robot rebellion!
Get it on Amazon: $129.99

Nintendo Switch Pro Controller
This is the best controller you can get for the switch (other than using an Xbox One controller here, but that's another story). All those sold-out-everywhere switches need proper controllers, so here's how you get one.
Get it on Amazon: $59.99

Amazon Fire HD 8
If you're looking for an entry level tablet, Amazon gives you great bargains that are hard to pass. You get quite a bit of bang for the buck. They're sturdy and decently spec'ed.
Get it on Amazon: $79.99

Carnival Games for Nintendo Switch
I don't even have this game, but I'm ordering it now simply because it is the only video game in the entire Top 50 in Electronics at Amazon. All those switches need games I guess, but why this one?? Intriguing!
Get it at Amazon: $19.93

JoseQ's Look at this Thing

Some good toys to consider in the electronics department at Amazon. Obviously, Amazon has prioritized essentials for their deliveries due to the crisis, and electronics don't usually fall in that category. You'll need a bit of patience when ordering these, but with the just announced shelter-at-home for the next month... time is something we all have.
