Today’s Best Tech Deals

If you’re looking for a classy way to incorporate a TV into your living room, The Frame QLED Smart TV is the way to go and right now a number of models are discounted at Walmart. These TVs show off works of art when you’re not watching TV, and is so much more affordable now than when it was first introduced.

These TVs can act as a home theater when you want, but will fade away into the background when not needed. Better still, these are much more than just an accent piece, they’re actually terrific TVs.

They’re 4K UHD (2160P) with the vibrant colors you’d expect from a QULED Samsung set. Choose from a 65" set for $1,798, 55" for $1,398, 49" model for $1,198, and a 43" model for less than $1,000.


Nebula Capsule | $250 | Nebula
Nebula Prizm | $65 | Nebula | Promo code PRIZM2210

Anker, as you probably know by now, makes a lot of products. But I don’t think any of them are as ambitious as the Nebula Capsule, a surprisingly good portable projector shrunk down to the size of a soda can.

At this size, the Capsule is obviously not as bright as a projector you’d permanently mount to your ceiling, and its standard definition resolution won’t dazzle, but it can run for hours on a charge, and has great audio built in, making it ideal for an impromptu outdoor movie night, or even as a replacement for your bedroom TV. I’ve played around with it, and you can see all of my thoughts here.

For a limited time, the first-generation Capsule is marked down to $250 on Nebula’s site, down from the usual $300. You can also get the Nebula Prizm for $65 with promo code PRIZM2210. Its picture quality should look the same as the Capsule, but it has to be plugged in at all times, and doesn’t have a built-in operating system.


This Insignia 50" 4K UHD Fire TV is worth every penny at $270. It has Fire TV smarts and Alexa voice-control built-in. And it’ll likely perform as well as any most mid-tier TVs, so its perfect if you’re on a budget.

Full disclosure, this has been $20 cheaper a few months ago. But this current price is still about $80 less than usual, so it’s as good a time as any.


Renogy 100W Solar Panel | $87 | Amazon | Clip the coupon

They say solar power is getting cheaper and cheaper, and Amazon’s hastening the trend with today’s sale. This 100W panel from Renogy is ideal for RVs, boats, golf carts, tool sheds, or any other smallish application, has great reviews, and is only $87 today after clipping the coupon, a new all-time low price.

You’ll still need a controller to get usable electricity out of the panels, but this one from Renogy, designed for boats and campers, is also down to an all-time low $40 today.


NETGEAR Orbi Whole Home Mesh WiFi System (RBK52W) | $290 | Amazon
Graphic: Tercius Bufete

If you take your home WiFi coverage seriously, Netgear’s Orbi mesh routers are some of the best you can buy, and Woot’s running one-day deal on their WiFi router and 2 satellite (or RBK52W) permutation.

The latest-version of this reader favorite is now selling for just $290 , which is $60 less than usual. The main base station plugs into your modem, and the two wall plugs automatically create a mesh network that can fill over 5,500 square feet of space with sweet, sweet, Wifi.

It’s offering a 500 square feet more area of coverage than the RBK33, which we’ve written about. Just remember that this deal is only available today so pick yours up ASAP.

Graphic: Ana Luisa Suarez

Are you looking for a water bottle to take with you on all of your summer adventures? One of the most important features of a water bottle is that it is leak-proof. The Takeya Originals Vacuum-Insulated Water Bottle is insulated, so it will keep your drinks hot or cold. The 32. oz water bottle is only $15 on Amazon.


Tacklife Circular Saw | $52 | Amazon

Tacklife is perhaps best known for simple, affordable tools like electric lighters and laser measures, but the Amazon-native brand also sells a handheld circular saw that can be yours for just $52 with promo code HWFHK7SK.

Despite the low price, you get six blades in the box, an adapter to attach your vacuum hose, and even a built-in laser that projects a straight line directly in front of your blade, so your lines don’t get crooked.

Graphic: Ana Luisa Suarez

A heatwave might be headed your way, but that doesn’t mean you should ignore your garden. Right now, you can get up to 35% off garden supplies at Home Depot. The RYOBI 18-Volt Lithium-Ion Cordless Chemical Sprayer is only $89. A ProFlex No-Dig 100 Ft. Scallop Tod Edge Kit is 15% off right now. If you think it is too hot outside to garden outdoors, you can always snag a Miracle-Gro Twelve Indoor Growing System is 35% off.


If you want to get started with <Mark Zuckerberg voice> smokin’ some meats, an electric pellet grill is one of the easiest ways to get delicious, consistent results.

Traeger is the best-known brand in the space, but many of our readers have suggested looking into other brands, which often offer similar quality at a lower price. This model from Green Mountain is marked down to an all-time low $300 today, while it’s pretty small at just 219 square inches, it can run off both a regular AC outlet and a 12V car power outlet, making it perfect for tailgating and car camping. It even has Wi-Fi built in so you can control the temperature from your phone.


Babysitting the grill or oven while dinner cooks is nobody’s idea of a good time, but this wireless temperature probe will alert you the moment your food has reached the desired temperature.

That means no more dried out, overcooked meat, and more importantly, no awkwardly taking back your guests’ plates to finish cooking that pink chicken. Today on Amazon, you can get a single probe wireless monitor set for $25, or a dual probe set for $42, both all-time lows.


You might not need to use a Dremel all that often, but it’s one of those things everyone should keep in their tool box, if only for sanding wood and carving jack-o-lanterns. Today on Amazon, you can get a Dremel 4000 with 50 handy accessories for $119, the best price we’ve seen in years.

The Dremel 4000 features a variable speed motor that can spin anywhere from 5,000 to 35,000 RPM, and includes 50 accessories and six attachments to get you started with projects all around the house.


Thermos Gold Box | Amazon
Graphic: Tercius Bufete

This Amazon Gold Box is ostensibly meant as a back-to-school Thermos sale, but several items in there could appeal to adults who want to pack lunch for work.

Inside, you’ll also find water bottles, food jars, and even a lunch box shaped like a firetruck. Just note that like all Gold Box deals, these prices are only available today, or until sold out.


Cascade Complete ActionPacs | $10 | Amazon | Clip the coupon and use Subscribe & Save
Graphic: Shep McAllister

You need dishwasher detergent anyway, so you might as well buy it on sale. While supplies last, Amazon’s offering a coupon on this 78-pack container of Cascade Complete ActionPacs, which was already marked down to about $12. If you stack with Subscribe & Save, you’ll be spending less than $.13 per dishwasher load.


Wigbold Chef’s Knife | Kickstarter
GIF: Kickstarter

The team that brought us one of the most innovative nonstick pans we’ve ever seen is back with their latest project, a German steel chef’s knife that can last you a lifetime.

That’s not to stay that the Wigbold will stay sharp on its own for a lifetime, but the blade is larger and thicker on the heel than most premium chef’s knives, giving you more steel to work with over the course of years as you sharpen it. And if you don’t know how or don’t want to sharpen it yourself, you can send it into Crowd Cookware for free at any time to get it professionally honed.

Advertisement

The handle of the knife flows from the blade as a single, uninterrupted piece of steel, and utilizes the same hexagonal pattern that we saw from Crowd Cookware’s nonstick pans. While that pattern served an actual purpose in the cookware, here it’s primarily decorative. That said, it does look fantastic, and the ridges provide a bit of extra grip if your hands get sweaty.

Today is the Wigbold’s last day on Kickstarter, where it’s already raised over a quarter million dollars, and you can preorder to get one for about $66.


Breville Barista Express Espresso Machine | $450 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

Spending $450 on a espresso machine might sound indulgent, but when you add up all the money you spend at coffee shops, buying this Breville Barista Express could save you money over time.

The Barista Express includes a built-in grinder, and dispenses the perfect amount for each shot, making it pretty much idiot proof. The $450 price tag is the best price Amazon has ever listed, so if you’ve been eyeing an espresso machine for a while, this is a deal worth perking up for.

Graphic: Shep McAllister

I’m not a consistent flosser, and more often than not, I only brush my teeth once per day. It’s gross, I know. But you know what? My dentist always compliments me on my clean teeth, and I’ve never had a cavity, and I’m pretty sure my secret has been using a Sonicare toothbrush.

Advertisement

The ProtectiveClean 4100 model is down to just $35 on Amazon today after you clip the $5 coupon, and while it doesn’t have Bluetooth like some of the company’s more expensive brushes, it does have a pressure sensor, a quadpacer, and can work with any of Sonicare’s standard brush heads.

Today’s Best Gaming Deals

SteelSeries Nimbus Gaming Controller | $34 | Amazon
Graphic: Tercius Bufete

If you want to take your mobile gaming to another level, maybe you should invest in this $34 SteelSeries Nimbus Gaming Controller 

No touchscreen can ever match the comfort and precision of playing with a dedicated controller. And keeping your fingers from blocking a quarter of your iPhone’s screen is a big plus too. Better still, it’s also compatible with all of your Apple gear, including the Apple TV, iPads and your Mac.

While the Xbox and a PS4 controllers will soon be compatible on your Apple products after this summer’s update but those rarely drop lower than $40. And this $34 price on the SteelSeries Nimbus Gaming Controller is the best price we’ve ever seen on this model. Now, go forth and click some heads for me.


Razer Orbweaver | $94 | Amazon
Graphic: Shep McAllister

The problem with keyboards is that the keys are all already assigned to something. Letters? Numbers? Lame. Razer’s Orbweaver, on the other hand, includes 30 mechanical, RGB-backlit keys that can be whatever you want them to be. Ostensibly, it’s designed for gamers who want to create complicated in-game macros to get a leg up on the competition, but it’s also great for office workers, video editors, and photography professionals, who do a lot of highly specific, oft-repeated tasks in software.

The Orbweaver normally costs $110-$120, but today on Amazon, it’s down to $94.
