It’s that time of year again. Black Friday deals have been rolling out since the start of the month, and they’re still going strong even days after the sun set on Friday itself. As we’ve all heard, this year isn’t your typical shopping season, with supply chain backups making the availability of goods unpredictable.
We’re here to lend a helping hand, with our expert editors scouring the sales for the best of the bunch and updating our lists with each new crop of worthwhile Black Friday bargains. Below is a curated list of the top deals in various major categories. And at the bottom of the page we provide links to even more hand-picked Black Friday deals. Check back regularly for updates!
Best Black Friday tech deals
Here’s a selection of deals that we like and are already available.
Now: $100 ($50 off)
Interested in the Inspire 2 but bummed out by its lack of pizzaz? Have a look at the Fitbit Luxe, which sports a sleek profile, color screen, and stainless steel housing, and can be worn with far more posh bands. It also expands on the Inspire 2’s health and wellness tracking with the inclusion of an oxygen saturation sensor. You won’t find many alternatives that perform as well or look as fashionable, much less at this price (which includes a six-month trial to Fitbit Premium).

Amazon Echo (4th gen)
Now: $59.99 ($40 off)
A cool new design is just one of the new features in the fourth-generation Echo. It also adds Dolby audio (including lossless support for Amazon Music), a built-in Zigbee smart hub, the ability to sense when people are in the room (to trigger Alexa routines), and support for Sidekick, Amazon’s new low-power neighborhood network for smart devices. No wonder this smart speaker is a favorite of our sister site TechHive.

Google Nest Hub (2nd gen)
From: Best Buy
Now: $49.99 ($50 off)
The second-gen Nest Hub is a perfect bedside companion, now featuring a sleep-tracking, radar-like Soli chip in addition to its nice 7-inch screen, slim design, solid audio quality, and intuitive touch interface. It’s one of the best smart displays around, and all the more attractive at this half-off Black Friday price.

Samsung 3.1.2-channel HW-Q700A
Now: $397.99 ($302 off)
While it doesn’t have the massive driver array of the HW-Q950A, this 3.1.2-channel soundbar can still crank out immersive Dolby Atmos and DTS:X sound, and you can always upgrade it with wireless surround speakers. As with the HW-Q950A, the HW-Q700A packs room correction and AirPlay 2 support, and it can also be paired with the built-in speakers of a Q-series Samsung TV.

Now: $79.98 ($50.01 off)
If you’d rather not spend more than $100 on a soundbar, we’ve got a Black Friday deal for you. At its regular price, the all-in-one Roku Streambar is one of the best budget soundbars around, with impressive 2.0-channel audio, AirPlay 2 support, and a built-in Roku streaming player with 4K HDR compatibility. At a hair less than $80, however, the Streambar is an absolute steal.

Samsung Chromebook Plus V2 [Currently unavailable]
Now: $279 ($220 off)
This 12.2-inch Chromebook is a bit heavy for its size at 3 pounds, but it’s also got a lot of selling points, including a 12-megapixel rear (world-facing) camera, a 1080p display, and it folds back to create a tablet mode, which is great for Android games. And it includes a stylus! This is an all-time low price (discounted an extra $7 from Tuesday!). Support lasts through June 2024.

Microsoft Surface Pro 7 + Signature Type Cover + Surface Pen bundle
Now: $849.99 ($279 off)
When Microsoft’s Surface Pro 7 debuted in February 2020 it absolutely dominated the laptop market. Sure, it has since been supplanted by the Surface Pro 8 (with Thunderbolt), but this SP7 configuration is still very good, especially at this very good price.

1TB Samsung T7 Portable SSD
Now: $110 ($60 off)
This is the lowest price yet for this zippy USB 3.2 portable SSD drive. We’ve liked this drive in previous incarnations, and this upscale variant goes further with a fingerprint reader.

1TB SK Hynix Gold S31 SATA 2.5-inch Internal SSD
Now: $95 ($40 off); $75 ($60 off) for Amazon Prime Subscribers
(Clip coupon before adding to cart)
One of our favorite internal SSDs is also at its lowest price ever for Black Friday, and not just at the 1TB capacity. The 500GB model is also at an all-time low. Seriously, the S31 is one of the fastest SSDs we’ve tested, coming very close to the performance of a best-in-class Samsung 870 Evo.

LG 27UK500-B 27-inch
Now: $247 ($103 off)
You don’t have to break the bank to break into 4K resolution anymore. Case in point: LG’s 27UK500-B. This 27-inch display is the perfect size for work and play alike, and its 4K IPS panel will ensure that every game or spreadsheet appears in the highest possible fidelity, complete with vibrant color. Speaking of, LG’s monitor supports 98% of the sRGB color gamut, HDR 10 compatibility (though this is not an ultra-bright HDR monitor—those cost much more), and AMD’s gameplay-smoothing FreeSync technology, which works on both Radeon and GeForce graphics cards. That’s a whole lot of bang for comparatively few bucks.

Razer Power Up Bundle (Keyboard, Mouse, Headset, Mousepad)
Now: $79 ($81 off)
This Razer bundle with a non-mechanical (but very “clicky”) keyboard, wired mouse, wired communication headset, and massive mousepad was already a pretty decent deal. At just $79, it’s an absolute steal for anyone setting up a new gaming PC.
