After a year Cyber Monday has officially started. If you’re shocked, don’t worry. It is partly surprising because November is nearly over, but even more so because we’ve been experiencing weeks of on-and-off tech deals. The unique nature of 2020 has prompted many retailers to start the holiday shopping season at the beginning of this month, so there have been plenty of deals to grab for quite some time. However, today we see some new deals (and stellar sales) that value your time and money if you have yet to pick it all up — or just want yourself something nice. Here are some of the best tech deals we could find for Black Friday.
AirPods Pro ($169)
The AirPods Pro, the best sounding Apple earbuds, is down to 169 dollars. You can still place your order temporarily out of stock on Amazon and are notified when the delivery date is estimated.
Lenovo Smart Clocks ($35)
The original Lenovo Smart Clock comes for $35, the lowest we saw. It’s a compact, intelligent Google Assistant display that works as well as an intelligent alarm clock. For its charming design, sunrise alarm feature, and lack of a camera, we gave it a score of 87. The Lenovo Smart Clock Essential is down to $25 if you want something a bit more basic, which is another record low.
Sony WH-1000XM4 headphones ($278)
The Sony WH-1000XM4 headphone is on sale at Amazon for $278, an all-time low since they debuted a couple of months ago. Due to their excellent active noise-cancellation technology, immersive sound quality, and multi-device connectivity, Amazon valued it with 4.6 stars out of 5.
Dell XPS 13 Touch ($700)
For Black Friday, the stellar XPS 13 Touch laptop is on sale for just $700. Stellar XPS 13 Touch laptop comes with a 10th-gen Core i5 processor, 8GB of RAM, a 256GB SSD, and a 13.3-inch FHD touchscreen in this particular model.
ASUS Zenbook 14 ($700)
For Black Friday, the sleek ASUS Zenbook 14 is down to $700, which is $100 off its normal price. These models were only released a few months ago, and this one runs on the 10th-gen Core i5 processor, 8GB of RAM, and 512GB of SSD. A 1080p 14″ display and a trackpad, which doubles as a calculator, are also available.
Echo Dot ($29)
This fall we’re seeing Amazon’s first big discount update of the echo dot. The new Echo Dot is $29, down 42 percent from its standard price. It has a new sphere design that is refreshing to see in the last generation, following years of hockey-puck design. Its sound quality, 3,5mm audio jack, and snooze functionality have been improved too.
Sony WH-CH710N headphones ($88)
For their affordability, Sony’s WHCH710N headphones earned a spot on our list of favorite wireless headphones, but they’re a steal at the $88 Black Friday price. Usually $198, they’ve dropped to $88 before, but they’ve never been that low.
Razer BlackWidow Elite keyboard ($85)
Razer BlackWidow Elite is a record low $85 for Black Friday, one of our favorite gaming keyboards. We like the full QWERTY layout, media controls, and personalized dials. It may not be a wireless keyboard, but paying for a stellar peripheral is a small price. The options for green, yellow, and orange are available, so you can choose how clicky you want to experience and still save money.
Kindle Paperwhite ($85)
One of our favorite e-readers is Kindle Paperwhite and it’s now cheaper than ever at 85$. It’s usually $129, and that’s the same price it was on Amazon Prime Day in October.
Fire HD 10 tablet ($80)
The largest and most capable Fire HD 10 Tablet from Amazon is down to $80, which is a new all-time-low cost. Usually priced at $149, we scored 88 in its 1080p display, solid performance, and convenient Alexa hands-free support with the Fire HD 10. The Fire HD 10 not only makes good medium consumption devices, but it can also double like an Echo Show device with Show Mode, which is a response to every Alexa command.
Roku Streambar ($100)
The new Roku stream bar has come on sale for $100 last month, $30 off its normal price, which is already on sale. The Roku smart soundbar is a smaller version that increases the audio content of your TV whilst incorporating the 4K HDR streaming technology. We earned 86 points due to their compact design, great audio quality for films and TV, support for Dolby Audio and Bluetooth speakers.
Echo Show 5 ($45)
The Echo Show 5 has fallen again to $45, 50 percent below its usual price. Thanks to its compact size with a 5-inch touchscreen this is one of the most versatile Alexa Smart displays. For its sunrise alarm (which helps it works as an intelligent alarm timepiece), its excellent sound quality, and its physical camera shutter.
GoPro Hero8 Black bundle ($299)
A special $299 GoPro Hero8 Black bundle is on sale for Black Friday, down from $357. It includes the action cam, Shorty, and a head strap, a 32GB SD card, and two reloadable batteries, so if you want all you need to take one go for the killer videos, it will be a good option. For its practical new design, improved stability, and ease of use, we gave the Hero8 Black a rating of 90.
55-inch LG OLED CX 4K Smart TV ($1,399)
LG’s smart TV with 55″ CX OLED is $1,399, which is the lowest we have ever had. The 65-inch model is likewise at an all-time low. LG launched these two televisions earlier this year and besides providing you with all of OLED’s great features, they also provide 120Hz refresh rates and support for NVIDIA G-SYNC and AMD FreeSync.
65-inch Vizio P-Series Quantum 4K Smart TV ($999)
This $999 selling price is a low all-time price for Vizio P-Seres K smart TV 65-inch. It can reach up to 1100 nits of luminosity and supports Full Array with local dimming, Dolby Vision HDR, and Quantum Color technology from the company.
Sonos Beam ($299)
The Sonos Beam is currently $100 off, which is a low all time. This leads to a record low price of $299. The next best thing to get is if you don’t have space to replace the full-size Sonos Arc. For its outstanding sound quality and AirPlay 2 plus Alexa support.
Roku Streaming Stick ($30)
The Roku Streaming Stick+ is a long-time favorite and is down to 30 dollars. Once you’re looking for a compact yet strong streaming device, this is only 1$ more than the previous all-time-low price and a lot. It earned a place in our holiday gift guide for its pocket-friendly design, 4K HDR streaming, and solid performance.
Fire TV Stick ($28)
The all-new Fire TV stick is reduced to $28, 30 percent off its normal price. A few months ago, it was released and features a faster processor, audio support for Dolby Atmos, and a remote Alexa voice.
Fitbit Charge 4 ($100)
Fitbit Charge 4 available today for just $100, $50 off its normal price. Fitbit released this wearable in the spring and it’s the best fitness tracker (not a smartwatch). Fitbit Charge 4 comes with a built-in GPS, standard Fitbit Pay, and multi-day battery life.
