TV and soundbar offers
The Samsung S95C (8/10, WIRED Recommends) is one of our favorite TVs, thanks to its quantum dot OLED panel, which gives it perfect black levels and an incredibly bright picture. It even comes with an excellent centered base mount for easy placement in your living room.
For gamers, the LG C3 is our top TV choice. In addition to the usual benefits of LG’s OLED panels, like perfect black levels, it has features that are attractive for gaming, including a 120Hz refresh rate for super-smooth gameplay and a 9.2-millisecond response time to eliminate any input lag during fast-paced games to reduce.
One of the best upgrades you can make to your TV is adding a soundbar to replace the mediocre speakers in the TV itself. This soundbar from Polk is one of our favorites. It’s equipped with a subwoofer that amplifies all of the deep, booming tones that Christopher Nolan loves so much, and it has several audio presets that let you tailor the sound to the type of media you’re watching.
If you’re interested in mechanical keyboards but aren’t sure where to start, the NZXT feature (8/10, WIRED recommends) is a good place to start. It has a stylish design and you can configure things like switches and keycaps at the time of purchase. It also comes with tools that allow you to change the keyboard later if necessary.
If you like mechanical keyboards that are loud enough to be registered by distant seismic detectors, the Roccat Vulcan 121 is our pick for you. The switches on this board are bottom-lit and semi-transparent, giving it an eye-catching look that suits it stunningly loud clicking switches (in a positive sense).
The Logitech G915 is one of my personal favorite keyboards, thanks in large part to Logitech’s powerful G Hub software, which makes it easy to automate tasks to increase productivity. It’s designed for gamers, but it’s also useful if you spend a lot of time using creative tools like DaVinci Resolve, Premiere, Blender, Cinema 4D, and other high-end media production tools.
This is one of our favorite keyboards with twice as many LEDs as usual. Notably, it features two LEDs per switch, giving it cosmetic benefits like smoother color animations and occasional functional benefits like the ability to indicate when mute is on.
Click the “Voucher” button to see the discount at checkout. This keyboard is particularly suitable for fans of the NumPad. It is made of high quality plastic and features hot-swappable switches and satisfying tactile switches. This offering is quite modest, but this keyboard rarely comes up for sale, so it’s worth taking a look.
Gaming mouse deals
Overall, this mouse is our top choice among gaming mice. It’s lightweight, comfortable for a variety of hand sizes and shapes, and has a few extra buttons without becoming clutter-free. It’s designed specifically for esports professionals, meaning it has beautiful, clicky buttons, extremely fast response time, and solid wireless connectivity, even at around 3 meters from the receiver.
This gaming mouse features a comfortable body; additional thumb buttons; and, perhaps most importantly, a modest price. Even though it’s not on sale, it’s one of our cheaper offerings, and this offer only makes it more accessible.
Other tech offerings
Anker is starting its Black Friday sale early with discounts And a promotion where you get a 50 percent discount if you buy one. Make sure you use the code listed to lock in the discounted price for each product. In general, we like most Anker devices, but the one that stands out is the one that stands out Anker Prime power bank and that Anker Nano Power Bank. anchor tiny 511 30 watt charger is also excellent.
The Google Pixel Buds A-Series (8/10, WIRED Recommends) are our top pick for earbuds overall. For almost everyone – even some iPhone users – these check all the boxes. They feature up to five hours of battery life (plus an additional 19 hours by charging in the carrying case), IPX4 water resistance for training, and near-instant pairing with Android devices. That’s a solid deal, but prices drop to $59 during major sales events, so it might be worth waiting for Black Friday.
For Samsung owners, the Galaxy Buds2 Pro (9/10, WIRED Recommends) are one of our top earbud recommendations. They produce excellent sound quality with a super comfortable fit and IPX7 water resistance. They don’t have the multi-device connectivity that we like about the Pixel Buds A-Series, but if you primarily use your earbuds with a Samsung phone, these are a good solution for you.
A slightly cheaper version of the above, the Galaxy Buds2 (9/10, WIRED recommends) are another one of our favorites for Android users. They’re priced similarly to the standard AirPods and have a battery life of five hours with active noise cancellation turned on and an impressive 7.5 hours with the feature turned off. They come with a charging case and deliver rich bass via their dual driver array. This listing is for the Olive Green color model only.
