Multi-deal Monday: Hard drive, monitor, and Bluetooth bracelet

Get a 1.5TB external drive for cheap, a 22-inch LCD for even cheaper, and a sanity-saving wristband that vibrates when you get a phone call.

The AOC F22
The AOC F22 TigerDirect

Yep, it's one of those days: too many good deals to focus on just one. Hope you've got some room on your credit card, because all three of these are, IMHO, too sweet to pass up.

First up, TigerDirect has the AOC F22 22-inch LCD monitor for $99.99, plus $10 for shipping. That's after applying coupon code GQP35095 at checkout.

This 1080p monitor is new, not refurbished. It sports DVI and VGA inputs and one of the cooler-looking bezels I've seen. More importantly, it has an average user rating of 4.6 stars out of 5--and that's from nearly 175 buyers. This is without a doubt one of the best deals I've seen on a 22-inch monitor.

Second, Buy.com has the Fantom GreenDrive 1.5TB external hard drive for $69.99 shipped. (Thanks to reader leonmadelyn for sharing the deal!) It features USB and eSATA connectivity, a two-year warranty (woot!), and support for Windows and Mac systems.

You also get 2GB of cloud backup for six months--though that's hardly what I would call icing on the cake. For example, you can get a free 5GB SugarSync account for life or 25GB of free storage from Windows Live SkyDrive. Just saying.

The LED Bluetooth Vibrating Bracelet
The LED Bluetooth Vibrating Bracelet Mostbuying

Finally, an outfit called Mostbuying (nope, I never heard of it, either) has an LED Bluetooth Vibrating Bracelet for $24.28 shipped when you use coupon code deals2buy15 at checkout.

This ubercool gadget solves the problem of not being able to hear (or feel) your cell phone when it rings. Instead, you'll feel the wristband vibrate (or see its LEDs light up).

I haven't used one of these myself, but it sounds like a killer solution to a common problem. If you own one, hit the comments and let me know if it's as cool as I think it is.

There. Hope all that made your Monday a little big brighter. And cheaper.
