Amazon’s Prime Day — which is, yes, two days (June 21-22) — is here, and for Prime members, it allows access to thousands of deals.

Some of these deals are OK. Some you can probably find again, or with a better discount, on any other random week. But tech — particularly gadgets from Amazon itself — is a solid investment for the next two days.

We decided to narrow this down by tech category and pick the best deal that’s not going to expire in 20 minutes (some of the deals are timed, some will last one or both days or until stock runs out).
