(Updated in real-time on 12th October 2022) It’s finally here, Prime Day Early Access 2022. This is the perfect opportunity to pick up some pieces for your desk setup. It has been a tough year for us all, and whether working from home or getting back into the office, we here at Minimal Desk Setup have curated the best gifts for your home or office setup! These popular gifts can help make any home or office more comfortable and productive.
The categories of items we’ll be taking a look at this year will be
- Light Bars / Monitor Lamps
- Monitor Stands
- Monitor Arms / Monitor Mounts
- Computer docks
Without further ado, let’s get started
This item is at the very top of our list because of its importance. A keyboard that can improve your day-to-day productivity with its macro keys, easier key presses and ergonomic design to prevent fatigue. So let’s look at some of the top options available on Amazon prime day.
To start us off, heavy-weight keyboard makers, Keychron have discounted all their keyboards across the line, with their K2 and K7 options looking extremely appealing.
A keyboard cannot be mentioned without hearing the name Logitech.
The RK Brand has come out with some of the best compact mechanical keyboards of late, with The RK61 and RK84, 67 and 61 being the 3 top models recommended by us for compact form factor mechanical keyboards that are prebuilt.
There are few options when it comes to mice but they are separated into either the gaming category or the productivity category. Let’s take a look.
Gaming mouses require high polling rates and tend to have fewer keys on them as they focus on prioritising the function of the clicks and tracking speed. Wireless is the way to go in 2022.
This year, the Logitech MX Master 3s is not available for early access deals through Amazon Prime Day, however, the fast-growing Rapoo 4 has been discounted. This mouse is worth a look as it provides features that are on par with the Logitech MX Master 3S, but at an incredibly budget-friendly cost.
Moving into 2023, I think standing desks will become the main office desk for many people building their home offices. The prices of standing desks continue to evolve to become ever more affordable, so let’s see what deals are available for 2022.
The Flexispot EC1 is a top-budget standing desk with all-around features. If you want a better understanding of standing desks, read our guide.
Light bars or Monitor Lamps
Man, we’ve talked so much about light bars in the last year, as it became a must-have in 2022 for your desk setup. If you want to learn a bit more about monitor lamps, read our monitor lamp guide.
Xiaomi, BenQ and Yeelight do not have early access deals – so we’ll go with Baseus and Quntis!
These two light bars are not the top options, but if you need a light bar and are on a budget, they are definitely worth trying.
There are heaps of speakers out there, but looking at the deals only a handful of them are available. In addition, we want aesthetic ones as well so let’s take a look.
This might be a perfect time if you’re looking for a monitor upgrade. For monitors, we’re only looking at 27 and 34-inch options – with 34-inch monitors being only in 1440P.
Samsung is dishing out the deals this year, with their prime gaming monitor at 34 inches on sale for extreme value. The following monitor is for gaming at 165 Hz at 1440p.
LG this year has all of their productivity and work monitors for creators on sale. Let’s take a look at the top options
Monitor stands or desk shelves have been popularised in 2021 through Grovemades handcrafted desk shelves which can be seen in many desk setups from last year. Amazon has also provided a marketplace for competitors to sell it at a much lower price.
Monitor Arms and Mounts
In our famous desk setup guide in 2022, we discuss the importance of having a monitor arm. It gives your desk setup more real estate by using vertical spaces on your desk. Let’s examine which arms are available for Amazon prime day early access.
If you have a heavier monitor like a 34-inch monitor, it may be worthwhile to snag one of these off the amazon prime day early access deals.
We haven’t talked much about computer docks, but these are absolutely necessary if you run a laptop setup.
Can you add webcams on top of your light bars? – yes, you absolutely can; you just need a double-sided table. Webcams are essential these days as everyone is working from home. So let’s look at what webcams are an absolute steal on Amazon’s prime day early access.
And that’s a wrap
