Today’s Best Tech Deals

Sonos One | $180 | Amazon/Sonos.com
Photo: Sonos

Sonos came out with a slightly tweaked Sonos One smart speaker this week, and while “an updated processor, Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) and increased memory” are nice upgrades, the thing that really matters, sound quality, remains the same.

Advertisement

That’s why our recommendation is to buy the Gen. 1 model on clearance for $180 (Amazon | Sonos.com) while you still can. The Sonos One hardly ever goes on sale outside of major events like Black Friday, so whether you’re buying your first Sonos, or finally adding a speaker to your guest bedroom closet because you already have them everywhere else, this is a great chance to save. I’ve bought a couple of these for my mother in law’s house, and they sound astonishingly good, especially for their size.

Instant film cameras are making a comeback, for some reason, and you can get the Fujifilm Instax Mini 9 for just $45 on Amazon today, in either Ice Blue or Flamingo Pink. Just don’t forget to buy film (you can also save $5 by choosing the bundle on the camera page). Have fun, you weirdos.

If you want to build a home theater PC or server, you won’t find a better starting point than Intel’s teensy Next Unit of Computing (NUC) kits. This tiny box contains an Intel Core i3 chip, Radeon 540 graphics, 8GB of RAM, various display outputs, and integrated Wi-Fi and Bluetooth antennas, all for a low $440.

Advertisement

Full disclosure, this deal isn’t for everyone.

It’s more for hobbyists than it is a mainstream computer. For those who have a project in need of a “brain” with a small footprint, such a desk with a computer built-in, this NUC is $100 off its average price and only about $20 off its lowest price.

At first glance, Anker’s SoundCore Spirits look a lot like the reader-favorite SoundBuds Slims, but they do have a few key upgrades. The big one is IPX7 water resistance, plus added sweat-countering measures from Anker that make them ideal for working out, especially compared to the IPX5-rated Slims. They also last a bit longer with an eight hour battery (vs. seven), include a built-in cord shortener, and should have a bit more bass as well.

The SoundCore Spirits have sold for $30-$40 since they launched last year, but today, they’re just $25, no promo code required.

Hue Play Bundle (Hue Play 2-Pack and Hue Bridge) | $130 | Hue
Graphic: Tercius Bufete

The Hue Play is the best backlight around and this bundle essentially saves you $45 if you want to go all-in on Philip’s smart lighting system.

I’ve been using a pair with my gaming desktop for the past month and it’s easily my favorite RGB accessory. Not only does it look great when you first boot it up, but unlike the rest of my setup, I see the lights working in game.

Advertisement

I’ve used it with both Razer Synapse, which displays game-specific lighting effects (e.g., flashing green when a Set item drops in Diablo III or glows blue when my shield is up as Reinhardt in Overwatch) and the Hue Sync app, which samples and reflects whatever is on your screen. Of course, how much you’ll get from the former depends on developer adoption.

Advertisement

Not much of a gamer? You can also just mount Hue Play behind your TV and use it as a backlight. It functions a lot like the Hue LightStrip, but easier to set up. Of course, it works with all of the Hue accessories you already own.

This particular deal bundles the $45 Hue bridge, and is geared more toward people who are just starting out with their smart lighting set up. This offer expires next month, but the black unit is already selling out. So, I’d act fast.

When compared to traditional blenders, stick blenders are 1,000x easier to clean up after. You can skip the single-use blender pitcher, and just place this stick blender in whatever container you were already using to make your sauce, smoothie, or whatever else needs to be pureed. That means fewer dirty dishes, and more time to do all your other chores (or enjoy whatever meal you just mixed up).

This blender from Chefman is just $19 today, the best price Amazon’s ever listed. Not sure what to use it for first? My suggestion: Make some refreshing watermelon juice using Alton Brown’s method.

Outdoor barbecues will be back before you know it, and you can be ready for that (and all of your other cooking needs) with a 15% discount on the best kitchen thermometer money can buy: the Thermapen Mk4.

You guys love the Thermapen because it displays the temperature in 2 - 3 seconds, has a 3,000 hour battery life, is waterproof, and is accurate within 0.7°F. Step back into the kitchen in just about any nice restaurant, and you’ll probably see some ThermoWorks gear in use.

Here are just a few readers gushing over it:

Thermapen Classic (or really any of the Thermapens). Bar none the best thermometer for cooking I have ever bought — accept no substitutes.

Somewhat expensive at ~$70-$120 range, but I’ve been using mine for years and years, and it still gives me an accurate reading in less than three seconds. Well, well worth the price. Especially excellent for the grill. - theburners

Without a doubt. No other thermometer comes close. I’ve said it before on Kinja that the Thermapen is the best piece of kitchen equipment I’ve ever bought. - the-return-of-samba00

This model doesn’t see significant discounts very often, and today’s is actually only available on the new, limited edition Marine Blue colorway. Very tasteful!
