With Samsung’s new Frame TVs now available for pre-order, the 2021 model will sell until April 5 (or while supplies last) at a new low in multiple configurations. Typically $1,499.99, Woot sells the HDR-capable 55-inch QLED TV for $899.99, which is $100 off the previous low we saw during Black Friday and in the run-up to the Super Bowl. The 65-inch model also retails for $1,399.99 instead of $1,999, and both TVs come with a one-year warranty from Samsung.
While the 2021 model won’t have the matte, anti-reflective screen found on this year’s model, they’re both designed to display artwork when not in use, making it easier to blend in with your home decor. When turned on, they function as Alexa-equipped 4K TVs, supporting a 120Hz refresh rate and a healthy selection of streaming apps.
If smart lighting is more your thing, Philips Hue is currently taking 15 percent off a range of popular smart bulbs, mood light strips, bulbs and other items listed on this landing page as part of the mix and match sale. To get the discount, you have to buy at least one product from three categories: lamps, atmosphere and accessories. The 15 percent discount will then be applied automatically, as long as you make your purchase before April 5.
For example, right now you could bundle two 75W white and colored E26 smart bulbs (normally $89.99) with a Hue Bridge (normally $59.99), an optional accessory that lets you set up lighting routines, control varied scenes, and create up to 50 can connect lights. You can then throw in an 80-inch Gradient Lightstrip and get all four items for about $280, which is roughly a $50 discount.
Combined, this means that for slightly less cool, you can add smart lighting throughout your home. You can use the smart bulbs to set different shades of white light, from warmer to cooler, and further customize them with adjustable smart timers. The Gradient Lightstrips can display a range of colors simultaneously, allowing you to add a pop of color behind your monitor if you were mounting one behind your desk. You can also link the bulbs and Lightstrip to your existing setup via the Hue Bridge, which uses the Zigbee protocol, allowing you to control everything from the most popular smart home ecosystems, including Apple HomeKit, Google Assistant and Amazon’s Alexa.
We consider the powerful LG Gram 17 the best laptop for fans of large screens, because it offers a large 17-inch screen and is still surprisingly lightweight. Despite the huge screen, we found it even slightly heavier than the 13-inch MacBook Air. We also liked that the laptop has quiet operation, a battery life of 12 hours and a great keyboard, a keyboard that is a joy to type on and offers a surprising amount of travel.
Normally $1,949.99, Best Buy currently sells the configuration with 16GB of RAM, a 2TB SSD, Intel Iris Xe Graphics, and an 11th Gen Intel Core i7 Evo processor for $1,499.99 — the best price we’ve seen for this particular configuration – as part of the store’s one-day sale on several LG products. That makes the Windows 11 machine more affordable than the model we tested last year, which offered a 1TB SSD and initially sold for $1,799.99. Read our review.
Apple’s most affordable iPad just got, well, more affordable for a limited time. That’s because Walmart and Amazon are currently offering the 64GB, Wi-Fi-equipped model for $309 instead of $329, which is the best entry-level tablet price yet.
Despite a similar design to its eighth-generation predecessor, the latest iPad sports a faster A13 Bionic CPU, replacing Apple’s 2018 A12 Bionic. It also comes with a 12MP ultra-wide front camera with support for Apple’s Center Stage. feature – which is designed to keep you centered during video calls, as well as a 10.2-inch True Tone display that adjusts the color temperature based on your environment. It lacks some of the more premium features reserved for the 2022 iPad Air and more recent iPad Pro models, but it remains one of the better tablets for most people, especially at a discount.
