If you don’t have a problem with an older LED TV, you can currently buy the 55-inch model of the TCL 4 Series for the lowest price ever. Originally $499.99, Best Buy and Walmart discounted this particular model to $349.99. While this older LED TV may not have the slim profile of newer OLED models, it still packs many of the same features, such as 4K resolution at 60Hz and HDR10 support. The 4 Series uses the smart Roku TV platform, which integrates channels that would normally require a Roku Streaming Stick to access. While the 4 Series doesn’t have built-in voice assistants, it can still respond to voice commands when paired with a device with Siri, Amazon Alexa, or Google Assistant. You can also use voice commands to search for specific shows or control playback when you pair the TV with the Roku app on your mobile device.
If your TV’s built-in speakers just aren’t going to cut it, it might be time to invest in a dedicated soundbar. This 5.1.2 model from Vizio normally costs $499.99, but is currently on sale at Best Buy for $349.99, which is in line with the price we saw around Black Friday. This model is equipped with a pair of rear channel speakers and a dedicated subwoofer, and while it only features a single HDMI input, it features Dolby Atmos and DTS:X playback for exceptional surround sound quality. The M Series may have limited HDMI inputs, but it does have Bluetooth connectivity and support for voice assistants like Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant, so you can control volume and playback with your voice.
We also managed to find a few deals for anyone who doesn’t plan on watching the big game. For example, these UE Fits earbuds, which originally cost $249.99, are currently on sale on the Ultimate Ears website for $173.99. These true wireless earbuds feature custom earbuds that mold to the specific shape of your ear for unparalleled fit and comfort. In his review, The edge‘s Chris Welch commented on how impressed he was with this particular feature, in addition to their great battery life and overall sound quality. That said, they only have limited playback controls and they don’t automatically pause when you take them out of your ear. However, this didn’t stop them from earning a spot on our list of the best wireless earbuds.
A four-pack of the latest-generation Tile Mate trackers normally costs $69.99, but is currently on sale at select Target stores for $39.99. These relatively slim Bluetooth trackers are perfect for keeping track of anything that decides to grow legs. While Tile has since updated the design of its tracking fob with improved Bluetooth range and slightly better water resistance, the 2020 model uses the same crowd-finding network as the newer model, allowing you to locate your lost valuables that are hidden away. out of range of 200 feet from the tracker. . Best of all, unlike Apple’s AirTags, the Tile Mate is compatible with both iOS and Android.
