Best TV deals
This Vizio M-Series Quantum 55-inch 4K HDR Smart TV is our bang-for-your-buck pick for the summer.
It has an impressive 55-inch display with Ultra HD 4k resolution at 2160p, built-in video streaming and smart home features via Alexa, Google Assistant and Apple Siri. Its Dolby Vision HDR (High Dynamic Range) settings produce vivid colors and deep black levels—the exact picture and audio quality of any Dolby Vision movie theater, like the Dolby Cinema at AMC.
If you’re an Apple user, take note: The Vizio 4K TV is compatible with your MacBook, iPhone and iPad via Apple AirPlay 2—a rarity on most 4K TVs.
“If you want to experience a good HDR TV that is indeed 4K, for a good price with a lot of content, I would absolutely recommend this,” writes a five-star Amazon reviewer. “It has all the basics covered and is a very, very good value.”
And it’s a sweet $250 off at Amazon. Get it before this deal ends.

Best laptop deals
This laptop proves that working from home can be fun!
Equipped with a brilliant 14-inch HD display, 8GB of memory, 256GB of storage and a zippy fourth generation AMD Ryzen 5 processor, this Asus ZenBook is the company’s latest ultrabook that runs Windows 10. It weighs just under three pounds, so it’s light enough to throw in your backpack. This laptop is the complete package, with up to 10 hours of battery life per charge.
“The Asus ZenBook is very sleek, nice looking and light as a feather,” explains a five-star Best Buy reviewer. “It’s extremely powerful. Incredible speed. I’ve loaded the ZenBook up, ran numerous large programs, consecutively, and nothing appears to slow it down. Very impressive. This ZenBook will take over from our laptop, tablets and Chromebook.”
This Asus ZenBook laptop is on sale for $550, or $150 off its list price at Best Buy. And it expires soon.

Best headphone deals
True wireless earbuds are all the rage these days, but you don’t have to break the bank on a premium pair. Enter the Edyell Wireless Earbuds, a wallet-friendly and waterproof pair with world-class audio quality. You can snag these buds on sale for just $30, or a whopping $110 off at Amazon. That’s almost 80 percent off until of the 4th of July weekend.
The Edyell Wireless Earbuds offer robust audio with crystal clear tones and heart-thumping bass at an affordable price. These buds can go the distance too with up to 120 hours of playtime with their included charging case. That’s five full days of charge time before you have to go back to a wall outlet for juice. In fact, their included charging case can even be used as a power bank to power up your phone or tablet via USB. Now that’s something Apple AirPods or Samsung Galaxy Buds just can’t do.
“These earbuds fit into my ear more securely than AirPods do,” a delighted Amazon shopper shares. “The squishy tip helps the earbud from falling out of your ear and feels overall more comfortable than AirPods. The sound quality is great, and the earbuds connect as soon as you take them out of the case.”

Best tablet deals
While Apple’s entry-level iPad is great for casual use, the Apple iPad Air is for when you need a little bit more oomph. And it’s on sale for $469, or $30 off at Amazon for a limited time. This Wi-Fi model features a slightly larger 10.5 Retina Display compared to the standard version’s 10.2-inch display, and it’s zippier with Apple’s A12 chip built-in versus the older model’s A10 processor. It even has 64GB of on-board storage instead of 32GB.
The iPad Air is compatible with styluses like the Apple Pencil and keyboard covers like the Apple Smart Keyboad.
“I am loving my iPad Air 3,” exclaims a satisfied five-star reviewer. “The screen is massive, and the display is really clear. You can multitask just like you would on a MacBook, so that is another plus. The iPad has the same chip as the iPhone XS and XS Max phones, so the iPad runs much faster than other iPads. The bezels are also really small, and the iPad is extremely lightweight for how big it is.”

Best video game deals
Retro gamers rejoice! The Sega Genesis Mini (on sale for $40, was $80) is an exact replica of Sega’s original video game console from 1989, only smaller. From the volume slider to the side air vents, it really looks like Sega used the shrink ray from Honey, I Shrunk The Kids to create this console.
It includes 42 built-in games from Sega’s past (this breaks down to just 95 cents per game), including Altered Beast, Golden Axe, Ecco the Dolphin and Sonic the Hedgehog 2. It also comes with the ultra rare Mega Man: The Wily Wars and Sega’s never-before-released version of Tetris.
“At long last, Sega is rediscovering its groove and reigniting the ’90s, which was arguably their decade more than anyone else's, including Nintendo,” write an excited retro gamer. “The Genesis Mini rocks.”
The Sega Genesis Mini comes with two full-sized three-button controllers that attach via USB (however, a six-button controller is also available for $20), a power cable, a microUSB power adaptor and an HDMI cable.
It’s back in stock on July 7, but you can pre-order now to lock in this deal before it expires.

Best smart home and wearable deals
The Ring Peephole Cam is a great security camera for apartment dwellers, and it’s on sale for just $80, or $100 off at Amazon. The retailer is even throwing in a free Echo Dot (a $50 value). And this sale ends soon.
Like many of its smart siblings, this new home security cam delivers high-definition video, top-of-the-line motion detection and seamless syncing with your phone, but for residents of smaller homes. It’s also powered with a rechargeable battery (a carge lasts for about six months), the Ring Peephole Cam can give you 24/7 HD video stream of everything going on outside your door. It has two-way talk, so you can speak to whoever’s at the door without physically answering it.
“Video quality is great during the day or night, and we can view from our phones or on our TV with our Fire TV stick,” writes a delighted five-star Amazon reviewer. “It also sounds a chime on our Echo Dot when anyone rings the door bell or knocks on our door.”
