Usually a good TV is a good TV, but if you plan to play a lot of games on your set, this is the model you want. The LG C1 (8/10, WIRED Recommended) has an OLED panel, which means deeper blacks and better contrast, and supports up to 120 Hz for smooth gaming. It can also use Nvidia’s G-Sync if you connect it to a gaming computer. This deal has been around for a long time, but the price is still good.

Most TVs have a smart operating system, but this model has Alexa and Google Assistant, so you can find whatever you want to watch with your voice no matter which assistant you prefer. You can also ask simple questions: “What does the weather do?” or “How tall is Jeff Goldblum?” This historic low price has been in place since early November.

Sennheiser Ambeo sound bar


Amazon, The best purchase

When you see an expensive sound bar, like our favorite luxury model here, the bigger the discount, the better. The Sennheiser Ambeo Soundar has arrived at the lowest price match we’ve ever seen. This discount has only been used a couple of other times. In our tests, the audio sounded like the speakers were scattered around the room, even though everything was in a (massive) bar.

One of the biggest attractions of a soundbar is the simplicity of improving sound quality without setting up various gadgets. Yamaha’s YAS-209 doubles that appeal with a superb sound system and Amazon Alexa on a bar and a wireless subwoofer. This means it’s a sound bar, as well as a smart speaker. No wonder it’s one of our favorites. The price often drops to $ 300, but often returns to $ 350. We haven’t seen it go lower than this yet.

Polk React is one of our favorite soundtracks, thanks in large part to its Alexa integration. You can use Amazon’s voice assistant to set timers or play music. You can upgrade the bar with a modular speaker and subwoofer, available as a standalone accessory.

Vizio’s soundbars are overweight in terms of sound quality in terms of price. 5.1.4 This Dolby Atmos sound bar is no exception. It comes with a dedicated subwoofer and surround back speakers, with minimal setup work that offers Dolby-compatible immersive sound.

Sony’s PlayStation Plus membership is required if you want to play online, but even if you don’t, it’s a great way to get free games every month. A 12-month subscription tends to lower the price around the holidays each year, so it’s time to end it by 2022.

Wired mice exchange the convenience of wireless models for greater reliability and reduced delay. In most cases, delayed entry is not an issue, but if you play it competitive, it can literally be a life saver. This Razer Viper mouse is ambidextrous so anyone can use it. He’s considerably cheaper than his wireless cousin, he’s also one of our favorite mice in our game. The $ 40 Black Friday offer price exceeds other discounts we’ve seen.

SteelSeries has a habit of moving in front of gaming hardware, but this mouse was on our list of our favorite wireless gaming mouse. It has an outstanding design, a comfortable adjustment and a wide wireless range, which in our use works perfectly even 10 feet from the receiver.


We like the Roccat Kone Pro Air Mouse for its bright, semi-transparent buttons, but what makes it feel really great are these pleasing clicks. Right now this gaming mouse is at the best price ever.

The Razer Basilisk has been included in our list of best gaming mice in the past, and although it has recently come out in cycles, it’s still a good choice. It has a comfortable ergonomic design, 11 programmable buttons and a precise optical sensor.

This is one of our favorite little gaming keyboards. The Razer Huntsman Mini is a 60 percent keyboard with sleek but subtle RGB LEDs and good-fit keys. With its low profile, it takes up minimal space on your desk, so you can save space by moving your mouse or loading it into other accessories.

This deal is going into stock and running out. We keep them coming back just in case.

Xbox Game Pass Ultimate is one of our favorite games on subscription games. It comes with a library of hundreds of games, including first-day versions of games from companies like Bethesda and Bungie (which are owned by Microsoft). It usually costs about $ 15 a month, but right now you can get it for three months for $ 25, and you can stack it for 36 months.

Few things can make your workstation more like a futuristic command platform than the Elgato Stream Deck. This customizable 15-button LCD panel allows you to launch applications, run scripts, and integrate directly with your most powerful applications, with shortcuts that are highly targeted to your specific workflow. It’s rarely discounted, either.

You don’t always have to spend a lot of money to get better audio for your streams. This inexpensive microphone (the way you cut the collar of your shirt) is an easy way to get a better sound than you can get from a camera or phone.

If you record videos anywhere (basically anywhere, except at the desk or in the studio booth), then a good shotgun microphone can be key. These isolate audio from the sources they point to. The Deity V-Mic D3 Pro is one of our favorites and is regularly used by review editor Julian Chokkattu.

Since Google’s Pixel 6 came out, it’s been hard to beat the value, and that was our main concern when we reviewed the OnePlus 8T. It has a good camera, a wonderful screen and a full day battery. We wanted to see the price go down a bit. At $ 500, which is not only $ 100 cheaper than usual, it also reduces Google’s flagship.

Amazon, The best purchase, OnePlus

The OnePlus 9 Pro (8/10, WIRED Recommendations) made our list of honorable mentions among the best Android phones after OnePlus improved the cameras that were often impressed with previous models. It has now been priced low at $ 799. You can get a free pair of OnePlus Buds Pro when you order your phone directly from OnePlus.
