The Pentax K-r digital SLR camera did well in PCWorld tests when it was released last year. We thought it was a great deal at $850 for the camera body plus one lens-but now it's an even better bargain. Use coupon code BGTaxRefund15 at BuyDig.com and pay only $634--with free shipping to many locations.
The HTC Evo Design 4G earned 3.5 out of 5 stars in our review a few months back. It's the smallest phone in the HTC Evo line, and there's a lot to recommend it. There's even more to recommend it now that Wirefly has an amazing $10 deal on the phone. To get that price you'll need to activate a new Sprint account, though the activation fee is waived with this offer.
When we reviewed the HP Pavilion dv6 upon its launch almost a year ago, our reviewer pronounced it "a modestly priced laptop that doesn't disappoint" and gave it 4 of 5 stars. The Intel Core i5 model that we tested did well in our benchmarking tests, had an excellent keyboard, and a good display. That Pavilion dv6 went for $800 back in June 2011, but now you can find it for only $650 at Amazon.com (and shipping is free).
RIM's 7-inch BlackBerry PlayBook initially lacked a dedicated email client or support for Android apps, so it rated only 3 out of 5 stars in our review. Since then, however, RIM has announced an upgrade to the PlayBook OS that adds email, contacts, and calendar applications; an updated home screen; and support for Android apps. When the PlayBook launched, a 16GB version sold for $500. Prices have dropped since then, and now you can find the 7-inch tablet for only $199 at TigerDirect.com (with $4 shipping).
Netgear's N600 dual-bank wireless router earned 4 of 5 stars in our review when it launched last year. Although setup was a bit of a challenge, our reviewer found its performance "stable and glitch-free, with easy media serving." The router usually sells for about $120 online, but Buy.com has the Netgear N600 for only $78, with free shipping.
Dell's XPS 8300 desktop PC won high praise from our reviewer for its huge hard drive, multiple connectivity options, and low price. (Read the review for details.) That price is even lower now, as Dell is selling the Intel Core i7 model for $800, with free shipping. Enter coupon code LM?BF7P$FR9KCK at checkout and the price falls to $750. This is the lowest price for the Core i7 configuration we've seen recently.
The HP Folio 13 is the company's first Ultrabook, a slim laptop with a long 9-hour battery life. It scored 4 of 5 stars in recent testing, and our reviewer summed it up like so: "excellent performance and battery life, a fetchingly minimalist design, and a typing experience that thinner units can't match." Our review unit sells for $899, but BuyDig.com is selling a similar model for only $849 (with free shipping)--the lowest price online at the moment. Even better: Send in a rebate form and get $50 back.
