If you want to stream high-end video and audio content on your TV then you had better purchase the Amazon Fire TV 4K Stick. Who doesn’t want to watch in glorious 4K Ultra HD resolution or be immersed in stunning Dolby Atmos sound? Naturally, you need to have a 4K TV and your soundbar has to be Dolby Atmos compatible, otherwise there’s no point in getting this. The most popular streaming services are readily available, including Prime Video (that’s a given), Netflix, Disney+, HBO, ESPN, CBS All Access, plus a ton of free options, too, like YouTube, PlutoTV, Tubi, and more. Alexa is onboard on the remote, as well, and it’s always fun to search for content or just change the channel by using your voice. By the way, it’s worth noting that this is the only streaming stick right now that supports HDR10, HLG, HDR10+, and Dolby Vision. Best of all, the Amazon Fire TV 4K Stick costs an incredibly low $40 (down from $50) at Amazon with a one-year complimentary subscription to Food Network Kitchen.

For a solid robot vacuum for less, the Bissell EV675 is a wonderful option. It may lack the bells and whistles of higher-end models, but when it comes to cleaning prowess, the EV675 is worth every penny. This robot vacuum is as basic as it gets. It doesn’t boast Wi-Fi support and its navigation is a bit random and aimless, but we have to say its simplicity is part of its charm. There are no complicated setups. What you get is a remote enabling foolproof operation, and the ability to return to its charging dock by itself once it’s about to lose power. We all know that Bissell is synonymous with vacuum cleaning, and the EV675 certainly doesn’t disappoint in that department. Featuring a “Triple Action Cleaning System” consisting of a brush roller on the bottom, two side brushes, and auto-adjusting suction, this robot vacuum does a commendable job of leaving all types of floors, whether hardwood or carpet, virtually spotless. You’ll be hard-pressed to find a better option than the Bissell EV675 at its price range. Get it for just $170 instead of $299 at Amazon.

Keeping all the best features in the original AirPods, including the foolproof operation and setup, the souped-up AirPods Pro proves an even better investment for iOS users thanks to a customizable fit, better sound, active noise cancellation, and sweat resistance. With three sets of soft silicone eartips, you’re bound to find the best pair for the most secure yet comfortable fit. Apple’s new H1 chip has generated a tremendous improvement in sound quality, and these earbuds’ active noise-canceling is the best we’ve ever heard (or not heard). Touch controls remain as intuitive as ever, and with an IPX4 water-resistance rating, you’ll be able to listen to all your favorite tunes while you work out at the gym. Battery life, unfortunately, remains unchanged, a paltry 5 hours for each AirPod, but at least the charging case can carry up to 24 hours’ worth of reserve juice. Get the AirPods Pro today for $220 instead of the usual $250 today at Amazon.

The iPad Mini is hands down the best tiny tablet that you can buy, the perfect blend of power and portability. Armed with Apple’s new A12 Bionic processor, the same one found in the pricier iPad Air, the iPad Mini won’t ever let you down when playing a game, editing a photo, or drawing (you’d have to buy the Apple Pencil separately, though). Its 7.9-inch Retina display may be small, but it’s sharp, vibrant, and is a pleasure to read on. Battery life is solid, offering a good 10 hours between charges. Portability will never be an issue either since this tablet only weighs 0.66 pounds. And while it lacks Apple smart keyboard support, you do have the option to purchase any third-party Bluetooth keyboard, and they tend to be a lot cheaper. Get the iPad Mini today for just $350 instead of $399 at Amazon.

Those who seek serious power in a portable gaming rig need to look no further than the Razer Blade 15. This is undeniably the best laptop for gaming right now, offering a sleek understated design, exceptional gaming experience, and an insanely fast 300Hz refresh rate. The Razer Blade 15 packs in a powerful Intel Core i7 processor and Nvidia RTX 2060 graphics card, delivering a gaming performance unlike any other. You can even perform GPU-intensive tasks on it like video rendering, and running multiple heavy applications at once will never be an issue. Its 300Hz refresh rate screen might seem like overkill, but we all know that even the tiniest bit of lag can ruin your chances of winning a pivotal game. This laptop’s 15.6-inch FHD 1080p display is stunning, with mindblowing colors and incredible contrast, perfect not just for gaming but also for multimedia consumption. Get the Razer Blade 15 at Amazon today for $1,400 instead of $1,800 – a whopping $400 off.
