Some Amazon Prime Day deals for video editors

I was looking for a couple of specific things on Amazon early this morning and kept seeing some other things here and there that could be useful for the editor. I am in no way responsible for how much money you may spend. A caveat … not all Prime Day deals are the best in the world. And you have to be careful as Amazon seems to put just some “regular deals” in the list. For example, it may seem amazing to save $459.96 on this 2 TB G-Technology SSD but the same $289 price can be found at other places like New Egg. and the 2 TB isn’t listed as a “Deal of the Day” anyway. But the 1TB G-DRIVE mobile SSD is listed as a “Deal of the Day” for $156.23 but you can get that price at New Egg as well after going through some shenanigans to get the price.

So buyer beware as companies are always trying to take your money first and give good deals second. Some deals are listed to remain through Tuesday while some have limited times. You must be a Prime member to get them. Regardless here are a few things that might be right up the video editor’s alley. There are tons of TVs, iPads and other devices that any editor would use but I tried to make these products below a bit more niche. I may or may not have purchased a few of these items.

If you find anything good please post a comment below.

SanDisk 1TB Extreme Portable External SSD – USB-C, USB 3.1
