Toshiba 49″ 4K Ultra HDTV with Chromecast ($199 In-Store Only Deal, Limited Quantity, Regularly $449.99)
A large, 4K TV for $199 is a very hard-to-beat deal. This particular model from Toshiba has a 48.5″ screen, which is the perfect size for any mid-sized living room or mancave. All owners of the new PS4 Pro will appreciate the TV’s 2160p resolution and ability to upscale your current HD content to 4K without any noticeable loss of quality.
Thanks to the even LED backlighting and high contrast, the Toshiba 4K TV delivers brightness of up to 300 cd/m² and displays deep blacks that won’t fail to pull you into the action on the screen. Fast Wi-Fi connectivity makes unsightly Ethernet cables a thing of the past, and the built-in Chromecast support gives you the ability to cast videos, music, apps, and more directly from Android phone to the TV.
Even if you don’t own a set of home theater speakers, the two 12W main channel speakers with DTS Studio Sound do a pretty decent job that should satisfy the needs of most customers. With one USB input available for your digital camera or other USB devices, and an assortment of web-based services and content, the Toshiba 49″ 4K Ultra HDTV is guaranteed to provide you hours upon hours of entertainment. All for just $199 on Black Friday. So, hurry up and head to your local Best Buy.
Samsung Galaxy S7 or S7 Edge ($23.17 to $33 per Month Plus All the Bonuses Mentioned Below)
Without a shred of doubt, the Samsung Galaxy S7 and the S7 Edge are two hottest Android smartphones of 2016. Samsung knows how to make excellent high-end Android devices, and Best Buy, apparently, knows how to sell them. For just $23.17 to $33 paid in installments spread over 24 months or 30 months, you can get both flagship smartphones together with several free bonuses:
- $250 Best Buy gift card
- $200 Best Buy gift card with trade-in of any working smartphone (valid in store only)
- free Samsung Gear VR
- $50 Oculus Rift content pack.
What makes the Galaxy S7 devices so special? It all starts with their design and build. Samsung has put a lot of effort into meeting all expectations of demanding, professional users. Both smartphones are rated IP68 to protect them against spills, splashes, dust, and dunks. They have a microSD card slot that supports an additional 256GB with a microSD card and feature what are arguably two best Android displays currently in production.
Take a picture with the state-of-the-art rear camera with Dual Pixel technology and super-fast autofocus, and your good old point-and-shoot camera will suddenly seem obsolete. Other extra features include fast wireless charging, mobile payments, and support for Gear VR, Samsung’s mobile virtual reality headset.
LG G5 ($22.97 to $26 per Month Plus a Best Buy Gift Card)
Another attractive Android smartphone that you can pay for in installments spread over 24 months or 30 months is the LG G5. Not only can you avoid paying the entire price of the phone at once, but you also get a free $100 or $300 Best Buy gift card. You get the $100 card when you buy and activate the LG G5 with a monthly installment plan for AT&T, and you get the $300 Best Buy gift card when you buy and activate the LG G5 with a monthly installment plan for Verizon or Sprint. That’s some aggressive marketing from Verizon and Sprint.
With the recent announcement of Android 7.0 Nougat for the G5, customers have yet another reason to purchase this innovative, modular smartphone. Many other manufacturers had given the modular concept a try before LG released the G5, but they all failed to execute the concept in a user-friendly manner. LG has smartly opted for a simpler but more useful approach that relies on a removable battery compartment, allowing you to connect handy accessories such as the LG CAM Plus camera grip.
But you certainly don’t have to invest hundreds of dollars into swappable parts just to make the G5 useful. After all, this is a premium flagship device we are talking about, and it features an ultra-fast processor, uncompromising camera with wide-angle lens, and stunning 5.3” quad HD display.
Amazon Fire HD 8 ($59.99, Regularly $89.99)
The Amazon Fire HD 8 is ridiculously inexpensive even at regular price, but it’s a tablet deal-of-the-year for just $59.99. Amazon’s secret behind the tablet’s excellent ratings of 4.4 stars on Amazon and 4.6 stars on Best Buy is their ability to cut cost on things that don’t matter all that much to most regular users.
Who needs an aluminum case when the display sucks? And who needs the latest and most expensive rear camera when the processor struggles even with casual games and light multitasking? That’s why the Fire HD 8 comes with a fast 1.3 GHz quad-core processor and extra memory. It also features a vibrant high-definition IPS display with great viewing angles. To top it all off, the large Li-Ion battery inside can power the affordable family-friendly tablet for over 12 hours of mixed-use.
With Amazon, you can access seemingly unlimited amount of content, including Kindle e-books, movies and TV shows on Amazon Video, Netflix, HBO NOW, and 300,000 apps. All content is hand-curated so that you can protect your children from inappropriate content and make it easy for them to find entertaining educational apps, games, and videos.
Beats by Dr. Dre – Beats Solo 2 Wireless Headphones ($149.99, Regularly $299.99)
A fantastic sound on-the-go doesn’t have to cost an arm and leg, especially if you decide to purchase the Beats Solo 2 on Black Friday. Previous models from the company were often criticized for their bloated sound devoid of details and higher fidelity. Beats has listened to complaints of their customers and gradually improved their headphones to the point where even those who were vocal about their dislike of the company must admit that the Solo 2 are worth every single dollar.
With their wide range of dynamic sound and exceptional clarity, especially for Beats headphones, the Solo 2 are a well-rounded portable listening solution built for maximum comfort and long, uninterrupted listening. Their soft, ergonomic earpads gently rest on your ears, while the amply padded headband evenly distributes the weight of the headphones over a large surface area. You can listen either wirelessly via Bluetooth or plug in the included 3.5mm audio cable for unlimited wired listening.
