The best TV deals
Sarah Tew / CNET
The first TV was the Fire TV Edition of Insignia, model NS-32DF310NA19. We don’t like Amazon’s Fire TV as much as the Roku because the Fire TV menu pushes Amazon’s content up too much and is generally more confusing than the simplicity of the Roku TV. But this model has an Alexa built in, which pairs well with the Echo Dot (pictured), and its price is still $ 20 cheaper than a comparable Roku at Amazon.

This deal is also available at Amazon and elsewhere but is good enough to include here as well. The LG CX OLED TV is our favorite premium TV of 2020, and this price point is a new low, $ 200 lower than the previous low – making it $ 100 MORE than the 48-inch size. .
And if you’re looking for something bigger, the 65-inch size is on the new low too: $ 1,850. Read our LG OLED CX series review.
The best smart home deals

Echo Show “middle child” is also available for Prime Day. If you’re looking for something to sit on a kitchen counter or similar, this is almost certainly a better option than the 5.5-inch Show 5 – and for just $ 20 more.
Or more than $ 25, if you choose to buy a Blink Mini indoor camera at the same time. That gets you $ 70, a substantial savings compared to the usual price of buying these separately.
Best laptop deals
Lenovo’s premium two-in-one camera, the Yoga C940, boasts a sleek and sturdy all-metal design and a touchscreen display that can rotate 360 degrees into tablet mode. It includes an active pen that can also immediately wake up from sleep, one of the phone-like features it gets thanks to the support of Intel’s Project Athena.
This configuration features a 14-inch display with 4K resolution equipped with a 10th-generation Core i7 CPU, 16GB of RAM, and a 512GB SSD with 32GB of Super-fast Optane memory. A similarly configured Yoga C40 on Lenovo’s website costs $ 1,650, so the deal is even better than it looks. And it looked good. Read our Lenovo Yoga C940 review.
Best sound deals
This entry-level Samsung soundbar is turned off in half. It delivers 2.1 sound through a soundbar with four 40-watt stereo speakers and a 130-watt subwoofer for a total output of 290 watts. That’s a good amount of electricity for the price.
The Beats Powerbeats Pro regularly hit $ 200 and sometimes get a slightly bigger discount but $ 160 for the lava red version is close to the lowest price we’ve ever seen. Read CNET’s review.

Beats Solo Pro are a great set of noise-canceling in-ear headphones. The only problem is that they are overvalued at $ 300. At $ 180, they’re very attractive. This is $ 200 below the previous sale price we saw a few weeks ago. Read CNET’s review.
The best rest

When I found out about this deal, I immediately walked around my home looking for a place for this beauty. I spent a number of years on the Golden Tee golf tour – back to the days when people could go out to bars.
There are a few arcade games that cannot be duplicated on consoles, and Golden Tee is one of them. But this machine includes an important rotating ball controller, which is why I was determined to find a place for it under my roof. Given the amount of quarters I used to put in real trading, this should probably pay off on its own within a few weeks.
In typical Dyson fashion, the Cyclone V10 is great but expensive. However, the $ 150 discount and this powerful, wireless vacuum cleaner turn into a more attractive proposition. Read our Dyson Cyclone V10 preview.

TCL and Hisense aren’t the only brands to get a deep discount in this sale. Again, we don’t expect a Samsung appearance to match the picture quality of our favorite TVs in this size segment, but if you prefer to combine the large screen and the brand is more reputable than anything else, it’s a great appeal. We’d expect to see other 70-inch sets on sale for around $ 500 as we inch closer to Black Friday, but this is still an insanely low price for now.
This basic laptop is a good choice for students looking for an affordable machine for distance learning. Now offered with a $ 150 discount, it costs less than most Chromebooks. It runs Windows 10 and has a 10th Gen Intel Core i3 CPU, 8GB of RAM, and a 256GB SSD. The 15.6-inch display has a full HD (1,920×1,080 pixels) resolution, which offers better images than the 1,366×768-pixel resolution you get with most low-end laptops.

The 13-inch Specter x360 is one of CNET Reviews’s favorite two-in-one convertibles for its premium styling, light weight, and long battery life. And this is not the case with a retailer using deep discounts to switch to an older product. This 13.3-inch two-in-one is priced at $ 250 and features Intel’s latest silicon with 11 Gen Intel Core i7 CPU. Getting a 512GB SSD instead of 256GB of storage is also a boon. useful compared to this price. Read our HP Specter x360 review.

Sony’s latest noise-canceling headphones – and arguably the top noise-canceling headphones available – recently went on sale for $ 300 as part of Amazon’s Prime Festival. It’s currently available for $ 278, its lowest price tag. Read CNET’s review.

Jabra’s Elite Active 75t is a slightly firmer version of the Elite 75t, also on sale ($ 140 or $ 40 off). Both models are among the best true wireless headphones out there and can now be upgraded with active noise cancellation via a software upgrade (recently shipped in-store models. may have been fitted with an upgrade).
The Elite Active 75t looks almost identical to the Elite 75t, but on closer inspection you will notice that the finish on the case and earpiece is slightly different. Instead of the rough finish of the Elite Active 75t, the Active 75t has a finish that is soft to the touch with a grip feeling. Or, as Jabra says, it’s “built with a durable coating to resist dust and sweat, and has an IP water resistance rating that goes from IP56 (of the Elite Active 75t) to IP57, making them waterproof.” Read CNET’s review.
UE’s Megaboom 3 has been discounted to $ 120, but we’ve yet to see it lower than that, so this is a solid deal for a very solid portable Bluetooth speaker. Granted, it was released in 2018. Only in black is on sale for $ 100.

The Jabra Elite 85h for $ 150 is a worthwhile replacement for the more expensive high-end noise canceling headphones from Bose and Sony. It has good sound, a comfortable fit and excellent voice calling performance, making it a good choice for working from home. Amazon also has it for this price point. Read CNET’s review.
We haven’t reviewed this Hisense (which is a Best Buy exclusive) but we didn’t expect it to perform as well as some of the best 65-inch TVs out there. And like TCL above, Roku> Android. But forget all of that for a minute: this is a 65-inch 4K TV for $ 250. It’s the door level, people and we don’t expect this model to last long.
TCL is famous for Roku TVs and we prefer the Roku smart TV system to the Android TV version in this TV, but for this price, you can only buy the Roku Streaming Stick Plus, attach it to this TV and still out the front . Aside from the smart feature, we expect this 4-Series TV to perform “well enough,” like the equivalent Roku.
This widely loved, highest rated, mixer features a 5 liter stainless steel mixing bowl, batter hook, flat beat machine and egg beater. There’s also an accessories center for adding things like peelers and meat grinders. It is available in four colors of your choice.
