Amazon is currently selling the Toshiba 43" 1080p Fire TV for $230. This television launched at $300 and the lowest it went during Black Friday was $240, making this an even better deal (if only by $10). If you prefer talking to Alexa to fumbling with a remote, this may be a good bedroom television to consider. The retailer also has the smaller 32" 720p edition at $150, if staring at pixels is your thing. Read More
The 5.5-inch Huawei Honor 5X Marshmallow update is finally rolling out, solving one of the major issues we had with this device in our original review. With only 16GB of on-board storage (which we figured closer to 8GB after counting the OS and bloatware), Android 6.0 Marshmallow's SD card capabilities make this a much more attractive offering, especially considering the price! We saw the 5X on eBay for $159.99 back in March, but this is by far the best deal yet: $119.99 on Amazon for an unlocked device that will work on AT&T and T-Mobile in the US.
Just to recap our initial thoughts:
A $200 smartphone with a fingerprint scanner, a decent camera, solid battery life, and LTE...
Those of you with pro—or maybe just moderately complicated—home entertainment systems know how much of a pain it can be to manage the various remotes involved. Even worse is if anyone other than you wants to operate them; I had somebody watch my pets while on vacation and I came home to see the TV on and static buzzing because my poor friend just couldn't figure it out. A universal remote like one in the Logitech Harmony series can make things much easier, so why not jump on board today when they are on Amazon's Gold Box daily deal?
There are two models, each refurbished, available:
The first model, seen on the left for $54, has never been lower than $65 before (was also a one-day deal) and has otherwise ranged between $78 and $100, according to CamelCamelCamel. Read More
There are fewer accessory purchases I have appreciated more than my portable USB charger. This one, with a truly massive capacity, is a mere $13.99 after applying its coupon on Amazon. It checks all the boxes you'd look for in an external battery of its kind, with support for speedy 2A charging output in one port and another available for simultaneous charging at conventional speeds. There is an indicator to let you know how much charge it has left, which is handier than you would think.
Oh yeah, it also boasts a 15,000 mAh capacity, which is just about as big as it gets in this category. Read More
