This is not a drill: Sony's five-star earbuds just dropped to their cheapest price ever

We've already seen some fantastic deals on Sony headphones in the early Black Friday sales at Amazon – and that only continues with the launch of the retailer's main sale today.

Regular readers and audio lovers will need no further fanfare from us regarding the excellent Sony WF-1000XM4 true wireless earbuds. Now, you can get the excellent Sony WF-1000XM4 true wireless earbuds for the lowest price we've ever seen.

We awarded these top-tier, class-A Sony buds the full five stars in our review. They deliver stunning sound quality, strong active noise cancellation and a solid eight hours of battery life. 

If you’re looking for a deal on some of the best noise-cancelling earbuds this Black Friday then you've just found them. 

Sony WF-1000XM4 earbuds: was £250 now £159, Amazon
Black Friday offers like this don’t come along very often. We briefly saw them dip to £169, but this is a whole £10 cheaper than we’ve ever seen them, and if you don’t want to be left feeling sad then strike now, friend! Sony’s immersive LDAC, excellent ANC, eight hours of battery life from just the earbuds and stunning five-star sound quality all for £91 off the RRP? Click on through. View Deal

Sony WF-1000XM4 earbuds: was $279.99 now $178 at Best Buy
And there’s just as good a deal in the US today, with a $101 saving at Best Buy. Although we have seen them briefly at this price before, (a few weeks ago at Amazon, if you must know) the deal was over in a flash, leaving some of the TechRadar team disappointed. Thankfully, it’s here again. Sony’s immersive LDAC, excellent ANC, eight hours on battery life from just the earbuds and stunning sound quality? Yes please. View Deal

A must-buy TV for football fans ahead of the World Cup

The 2022 FIFA World Cup is right around the corner – and, if you're like us, you'll be inviting your friends around to enjoy as many matches as possible. But what if your TV isn't up to scratch?

Right now, one of the best offers on an large screen yet affordable display is this TCL 65-inch QLED TV. Pre-Black Friday, this 65-inch screen clocked in at at £699, but it's received a hefty reduction and you can now get £150 off at Amazon.

TCL C635K 65-inch QLED 4K TV: was £699 now £549 at Amazon
If you’re looking for a big-screen 4K TV that won’t break the bank, this deal is the one for you. It’s also rare to see a 65-inch TV at this price with these specs. With support for 4K resolution, Dolby Vision HDR, a QLED display and Android TV containing all of your favourite streaming services, it’s a huge amount of TV for the price.View Deal

Powerful budget smartphone gets a price cut

The excellent Google Pixel 6a has dropped to just £299 at Amazon. That's £100 off the usual price and brings this excellent mid-range device down to its lowest price yet. 

The Google Pixel 6a is essentially a stripped-down version of the excellent Google Pixel 6 flagship device from 2021. It's got the same speedy Tensor chip inside and overall design, but with a few tweaks here and there.

The combination of a powerful chip, a unique design, and an excellent camera makes it easily one of the most fully featured phones at this price point. In particular, the potential for camera wizardry provided by the Tensor chip – such as Magic Eraser – is something you'll struggle to find on rival mid-range devices.

It's also on sale at the Google Store for the same price.

Google Pixel 6a: was £399 now £299 at Amazon
The Google Pixel 6a is now at its lowest-ever price in the UK right now thanks to a hefty £100 price cut at Amazon. With a speedy Tensor chip, excellent camera, and eye-catching design, the Google Pixel 6a is an absolute steal at this price point for those after a more affordable and capable smart phone.View Deal

6 of the best deals at Amazon this morning

There's loads going on in the Amazon sale this morning – you name it, there's a discount. Here are six of our faves so far… 

1. Champagne, wine and whiskey: from £6.99 at Amazon
With party season almost upon us, now is a good time to stock up the drinks cabinet. Amazon is here to help you do that for less, with savings of up to 28% on a selection of wines, champagnes, vodkas and whiskies. Single bottles or larger cases are available, including well-known brands such as Jameson and Absoslut.View Deal

2. Yankee Candle sale: from £1.33 at Amazon
Set the right mood with this selection of Yankee Candle wax melts and candles from just £1.89. Given the time of year, there’s a wide selection of Christmas-themed scents, but you can also pick up some more universal options if you’d rather not have a home smelling of cinnamon and cedar wood just yet.View Deal

3. Nespresso Vertuo Plus Coffee and Espresso Maker by Krups: was £199.99 £70.39 at Amazon
This Nespresso coffee maker had a £100 discount last week, and the price has dropped again in the Amazon Black Friday sale to £70 – that’s the cheapest it’s been this year. Similar to the Nespresso Vertuo Next, the Vertuo Plus can make 5, 8, 14 or 18 oz coffees and espressos, but the difference here is that the Plus has an automatic open for pods and a rotating water tank. You’ll lose out on the Next’s Wi-Fi connectivity, mind, but your water (and therefore your coffee) will stay fresher. £70 is a great price for this particular model.View Deal

4. Shark IZ202UKTDB Anti Hair Wrap Cordless Stick Vacuum Cleaner with Flexology: £379.99 £189.99 at Amazon
You can save £189 on this limited edition deluxe Shark cordless vacuum at Amazon, which is now £10 cheaper than it was last week. There’s a lot going for this stick vac, which has a runtime of up to 40 minutes, an anti-allergen complete seal and comes with 4 attachments: a crevice tool, an upholstery tool and an anti-hair wrap pet tool. It’s a good choice of cordless vacuum for pet owners, and it’ll be a good idea to buy this deal now while stock lasts.View Deal

5. Sony WH-1000XM5 Noise-Cancelling Wireless Headphones: was £380 now £298 at Amazon
There’s currently £83 off what are quite simply the newest and best in Sony’s class-leading wireless over-ear lineup. The older XM4 were outstanding and the XM3 before it were excellent, so it’ll come as little surprise to know that Sony’s latest XM5 proposition are also incredibly hard to beat – especially with a whopping 21% off. They’ve only been as cheap as this once before – and these cans only launched in May 2022. Our advice? This is a top deal on a winning pair of new noise-cancelling headphones. View Deal

6. LG C2 48-inch OLED 4K TV: was £1,399 now £949 at Amazon
If you’re looking for an excellent deal on our favourite all rounder LG OLED, this £400 discount at Amazon is it. We didn’t rate the LG C2 five stars for nothing – the picture quality is exceptional. The C2 has a sleek minimal design, great connectivity, and brilliant gaming credentials with four HDMI 2.1 ports to take advantage of the new gen consoles. And the 48-inch model means it won’t even take up too much room.View Deal

Electric blankets from £29.99

It's definitely getting colder… If, like us, you're reluctant to turn the heating on yet, an electric blanket might be a worthwhile investment. 

Amazon has a whole load of discounts in its electric blanket selection, with prices starting from just under £30 for a budget double electric blanket from Bedsure, all the way up to, er, over £2,000 for 'intelligent' blankets with all kinds of smart functionality.

Personally, we'd stick to the £40-£60 mark – you can get something that does the job well in this range. But it depends on the size of your bed and how much luxury you're looking for, of course. Here are some highlights.

 

Bedsure Under Electric Blanket: was £39.99 now £29 at Amazon
Best budget – There’s a 25% discount on this budget electric blanket at Amazon. It comes in double and king sizes, and has an automatic switch-off function after 10 hours, plus four temperature settings. Amazon says it’s a best-seller, and it has an average score of 4/5 stars from 500-odd user reviews. Which is good, but not as good as the SilentNight option above (which boasts a score of 4.5/5 from almost 30,000 user reviews). Still, it doesn’t come with the more luxe extra versions that the Silentnight one has, which are likely propping up that score.

Slumberdown Wonderfully Warm Electric Blanket (double): was £99.99 now £90 at Amazon
Luxury choice – The Slumberdown Wonderfully Warm Multi Zone Single Electric Blanket has nine heat settings, a timer and automatic shut off, and a deep-filled quilted fleece comfort layer. It starts at £70 for a single and goes up to super king sizes (£100, down from £105). There’s also a cheaper version with three settings that starts from £42.50 for a single.

Still using a manual toothbrush? Here's what you need

Upgrading to an electric toothbrush is one of the best ways to improve your mouth health and get a superior clean. However, a lot of electric toothbrushes are packed with unnecessary over-the-top features and eye-watering prices.

That's where the Oral-B Pro 1 comes in. It's now just £25 at Amazon and does exactly what you need an electric toothbrush to do, without all the faff of Bluetooth connectivity to an app and built-in LED displays. It's simple, it's straightforward and it includes a handy pressure sensor to ensure you're brushing correctly. Bargain. 

Oral-B Pro 1 Electric Toothbrush: was £59.99 now £24.99 at Amazon
Oral-B’s pro oscillating electric toothbrush, complete with a bottle of 24-hour protection toothpaste, is at its best-ever price. This makes for a good Christmas gift or a way to get a cheap upgrade from a manual brush. View Deal

Don't miss: the best gaming laptop deal so far

Amazon is selling the Asus TUF F15 gaming laptop for just £549.99 – a £250 saving on the regular price of £799.99.

It's easily one of the best Black Friday gaming laptop deals we've seen so far, and this model is particularly good for kids and teenagers. So, if you're a parent thinking about buying your gamer offspring their first laptop, this deal is not to be missed.

With a large 15.6-inch screen with a high 144Hz refresh rate, plus an RTX 3050 graphics card, this is a great choice for anyone who wants to play fast-action games such as Fortnite or Overwatch.

ASUS TUF F15 Gaming Laptop: was £799.99 now £549.99 from Amazon
This Asus TUF gaming laptop has never before received quite this deep of a discount. For £250 off the asking price, you can get an 11th-gen Intel Core i5 processor, Nvidia GeForce RTX 3050 GPU, 8GB of RAM and a solid 512GB of SSD storage. It’s the perfect blend of lightweight design, affordability and power, something that impressed us when we reviewed its slightly more powerful configurations.View Deal

The best TV to pair with your games console

Looking for a TV that will pair perfectly with your PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series X or Series S console? You’ve come to the right place, as we’ve dug up plenty of great sales on TVs with a range of extras perfect for next-gen console gaming.

One that stands out above everything, though, is the LG C2 OLED. It's the display that currently sits atop our list of the best TVs available right now – and you can get it for its lowest price yet at Amazon.

LG C2 48-inch OLED 4K TV: was £1,399 now £998 at Amazon
If you’re looking for an excellent deal on our favourite all-rounder LG OLED before Black Friday truly begins, you’ve found it. We didn’t rate the LG C2 five stars for nothing – the picture quality is exceptional. The C2 has a sleek minimal design, great connectivity, and brilliant gaming credentials with four HDMI 2.1 ports to take advantage of the new-gen consoles. The fact it comes in a 48-inch model means it won’t even take up too much room.View Deal

This full-frame bargain is the best Black Friday camera deal so far

Cameras now. One of our favourite full-frame cameras has just fallen to its lowest-ever price in the Black Friday sales. This Panasonic Lumix S5 price cut will likely be one of the bargains of this year's pre-Christmas sales for video creators.

We rate the Panasonic Lumix S5 as one of the best YouTube cameras you can buy, thanks to its blend of a compact form factor, 4K/60p 10-bit video skills, five-axis image stabilisation and an articulating screen. Its 24.2MP full-frame sensor also makes it a dab hand at stills, and its body is fully weather-proof, too.

Panasonic Lumix S5 with 50mm f/1.8 lens: was £2,099 now £1,299 at Amazon
This is the lowest price we’ve seen for the Lumix S5 with the excellent 50mm f/1.8 prime lens, which makes it a serious full-frame bargain. We rate the S5 as one of the best hybrid cameras around, particularly if you lean towards shooting video. It shoots 4K/60p 10-bit video and has 5-axis image stabilization to keep things steady. The 50mm f/1.8, meanwhile, is one of the best lenses of its kind.View Deal

£60 off a 5-star coffee machine!

The Moccamaster KBG Select Coffee Machine is that rarest of things in the TechRadar world – a product that received the full 5 stars in our review

Why? Well, it has a striking design, is easy to use and (most importantly) makes a great cup of coffee. Pretty much everything you want from a coffee machine, then – and right now it's £60 off at Amazon.

Moccamaster KBG Select Coffee Machine: was £249 now £190 at Amazon
We recently awarded this hand-built European coffee maker a perfect review score, and Amazon has seen fit to discount it to a record-low price just in time for Black Friday. You’ll have to go for the orange model to get the saving, but we think the Moccamaster KBG actually looks better in a slightly more vibrant colour.View Deal

One of the best phone deals you'll see this week

The OnePlus Nord 2 is an excellent mid-range phone, with a 1080 x 2400 AMOLED screen, a triple-lens camera, 65W charging, 128GB of storage, 5G… the list goes on. You'd be getting a lot for your money at the usual £399, but this Amazon Black Friday deal pushes it down to just £262. Wow!

OnePlus Nord 2 5G (8GB/128GB, Grey Sierra): was £399 now £262 at Amazon
This early Black Friday OnePlus Nord 2 5G deal offers a huge £137 saving on the mid-range handset, bringing it down to a rather cheap price. For the money you’re getting a phone with fast 65W charging, along with performance and cameras which impressed us in our review. So while this isn’t one of the company’s top phones, it gives you a fairly high-end experience in a lot of ways.View Deal

Big Sonos savings are go!

This isn't an Amazon deal, but we're sharing it anyway because it's GREAT. 

Although actually, it's not a deal – it's multiple deals on Sonos products from the official store. For instance, you could save £200 on the Sonos Arc soundbar, or save £150 on the Sonos Sub (Gen 3).

Want to go smaller? How about the Sonos One smart speaker for £159, saving you £40 or the Sonos Roam portable speaker with Bluetooth for £139, again saving you £40. Scroll down and choose your favourite.

Sonos Arc soundbar: was £899 now £699 at Sonos
This is a top deal chaps. Why? Because it’s a stonking £100 cheaper than we’ve ever seen it to date and it’s a sensational five-star soundbar with Dolby Atmos, TrueHD and Dolby Digital Plus. Setup is incredibly simple too. This is Sonos, remember, the firm that wrote the book on multi-room audio for your home. Our advice? If you’ve been considering the Arc for a little while now, this is the moment… View Deal

Sonos Sub (Gen 3): was £749 now £599 at Sonos
Something about this design with the hole in the middle and those push-push drivers either side though, isn’t there? Also of serious note is the £150 saving, which is almost £100 cheaper than we’ve ever seen it across the big online retailers. Yes, there’s now a newer Sub Mini in Sonos land, but come on, where subwoofers are concerned we know which we’d rather invite into our lounge… 
View Deal

Sonos Beam (Gen 2) soundbar: was £449 now £349 at Sonos
The second-generation Sonos Beam soundbar launched in October 2021 and while we have seen a few discounts to date, this is £50 cheaper than we’ve ever seen it. For your money you’re getting a compact, stylish soundbar with excellent integration with the wider Sonos ecosystem, and immersive virtual Atmos support. View Deal

Sonos One smart speaker: was £199 now £159 at Sonos
This is a good deal on a Sonos staple. Looking to get into Sonos’ wonderful world of multi-room audio? This is your gateway product, although it’s a veritable sonic delight in its own right and with no other speakers to work with too. We’ve briefly seen it dip to a few pounds cheaper in the past (£147 at Amazon, in January 2020 to be precise) but we can’t promise that’ll happen this Black Friday… or ever, given this talented speaker’s indomitable popularity…
View Deal

Sonos One SL smart speaker: was £179 now £139 at Sonos
The same excellent little smart speaker, but why pay for voice assistant smarts if you don’t want them – or you’ve already got a Sonos One and this one can be the ‘slave’ to the master, as it were? We’ve seen it £2 cheaper than this but no more – and considering how ubiquitous this excellent-sounding has become since then, this is a top price. View Deal

Sonos Roam portable speaker: was £179 now £139 at Sonos
When Sonos makes a truly portable speaker that not only plays nice with your multi-room audio setup but also brings Bluetooth the party, you know you’re onto a winner. And although it might have seemed a little steep at its regular RRP, this money is far more palatable – and it’s never been as cheap as this to date. View Deal

Sonos Roam SL portable speaker: was £159 now £119 at Sonos
As the One SL is to the One, Roam SL is to the Roam: the same solution (ie a portable Bluetooth and wi-fi enabled speaker) but no mics and thus no built-in voice assistant support, although it’ll tag along if you’ve got voice control elsewhere in your Sonos setup. And this £40 saving is a huge discount; we’ve never seen it quite so affordable before. View Deal

Wait… is it Black Friday today?

With so many retailers launching their official Black Friday sales today you could be forgiven in thinking we're at the big day itself today.

Just to clear things up – Black Friday officially takes place next Friday on November 25th. It's always the day after Thanksgiving in the US, for the record.

Amazon has simply launched the first wave of its sale today and it'll be adding to these listings throughout the next week or so. 

Basically, a lot of retailers tend to offer up their sales early these days for various reasons, although it's mostly because they want to give more time for both shoppers and delivery windows. Every year it seems to kick off earlier (much like Christmas preperations….)

One very, very cheap premium laptop

I know a 'cheap' premium laptop sounds like an oxymoron but here's an amazing price cut on the Razer Book 13 in today's Amazon Black Friday deals that's well worth checking out:

Razer Book 13: £1,599.99 £669 at Amazon
An almost unbelievable deal on Razer’s compact productivity laptop, with the bright ‘Quartz’ colour scheme making it perfect for any pink-lovers in your life. The Razer Book 13 isn’t a gaming machine like Razer’s Blade series – it’s a lightweight but super-speedy laptop with Windows 11, perfect for school or office work. At almost £1000 off the retail price, this is by far the best deal the Book 13 has ever seen.View Deal

Firstly – let's address the elephant in the room. Yes, it's pink. This may not appeal to some, but this is a fantastic deal on the 512GB model. If you'd prefer grey, then you can also get the 256GB model for £629 (was £816), just know that it's not as good of a deal as the above Pink version.

Deals on Razer laptops aren't that rare at this time of the year, but it's very unusual to see one in the sub-£1,000 range and even rarer on the productivity-focused models. Specs-wise, the Razer Book 13 is going to outperform most Dell XPS or HP Spectre 13 rivals at this price point – and depending on your tastes – look much better doing it, too. 

In our original review, we marveled at the Razer Book 13's speedy performance, near-flawless physical design, and impressive speakers. Its aluminum-carved chassis is immediately reminiscent of the Apple MacBook Air. In short, it's a real bargain at this price and well worth the cash if you have a bit to spend.

PlayStation Plus Black Friday deals

PS5 gamers! It's time to stock up on your subscriptions

Discounts on actual consoles may be thin on the ground but Black Friday is a great time to top up your PlayStation Plus subscription. Right now, there are savings across the board that could save you some serious cash in the long run:

PlayStation Plus Essential: was £50 now £38 at Amazon
Here’s a 25% saving on the basic PlayStation Plus Essential membership. This comes with exactly the same benefits as the old version, including access to online multiplayer, free games each month, cloud saves, and more.View Deal

The same 25% saving has been applied to the new middle-tier membership for Sony’s gaming subscription service on PS5 and PS4. Added benefits on this level include access to a revolving games catalogue which includes up to 400 PS4 and PS5 games, featuring many big first-party releases such as Demon’s Souls and Death Stranding.View Deal

PlayStation Plus Premium: was £100 now £75 at Amazon
And there’s also 25% off the top PlayStation Plus Premium membership. This pricey plan includes everything from the previous two tiers (online multiplayer, free games each month, cloud saves, PS4/PS5 games catalogue) but also adds access to a selection of PlayStation Classics from PS1, PS2, PS3 and PSP consoles. Good if you want to relive some iconic titles from gaming’s past like Syphon Filter and Ape Escape.View Deal

Watching the world cup?

We've already featured today's awesome Amazon Black Friday deal on the LG C2 but obviously not everyone can afford to dish out a grand on a TV – not least with today's economic climate. Here's a great option if you're looking for something to make those games really shine but don't want to break the bank:

TCL 55-inch C635K series 4K QLED TV: was £499 now £379.00 at Amazon
With Amazon taking £120 off this already inexpensive 55-inch QLED TV, it’s now a better deal than ever.  For the money, you get not just quantum dots for enhanced color, but Dolby Vision and HDR10+ high dynamic range support. An Onkyo audio system delivers Dolby Atmos sound, and everything is run on the Android TV smart interface for streaming.View Deal

Now, it's still a little on the pricey end, but hear us out. It's extremely rare to find a decently sized QLED display in the sub-£400 range and this TCL is absolutely packed to the brim with useful features. For the price, you're going to get an incredibly bright and vivid picture with this one, definitely more so than the LED displays you'll find in the cheaper price brackets.

Stocking filler gift ideas #1

A lot of people tend to use Black Friday as chance to bag a discount on that big piece of tech they've had their eye on all year. I would, however, say it's just as useful, if not even more useful if you're just looking for a few small gifts for friends and family over Christmas. 

Amazon in particular really nails this type of thing so I'm going to post a few ideas if you're thinking about adding some cheap tech-related gifts to your checkout. First up:

Echo Dot (4th Gen): was £49.99 now £19.99 at Amazon
Amazon’s latest generation Echo Dot smart speaker is back on sale with a £30 saving – that makes it the cheapest we’ve seen it. In our Echo Dot review, we found it to be reasonably loud and a cheap way to get some smart home tech. You can use it to control your smart home setup, as well as play music, check the weather, set timers, and more, all with simple voice commands.View Deal

So, this one's a real Black Friday and Amazon Prime Day classic – the diminutive but mighty Echo Dot. This particular listing is for the latest fourth-generation device, which is matching its lowest-ever price at the retailer right now.

The Echo Dot might not exactly be the most exciting or fancy device in Amazon's own range of smart home tech, but it's arguably the most useful. It's small, cheap, and can basically sit in any room of your house and provide access to handy commands or functions. It's basically designed to cheap enough to buy in multiples but one is more than enough if you want to kick-start your smart home setup.

For example, just one Echo Dot in your kitchen is enough to control a whole household's worth of smart home devices. Let's say you're cooking the turkey in the kitchen, you can set alarms, control any smart bulbs, or even change the channel on the TV in the living room, all from one device. This is obviously just one example and there are many applications for these useful little devices.

Stocking filler gift ideas #2

Here's another tech-related stocking filler that's going to be a real safe bet. If your friends or relatives don't have an electric toothbrush already, Amazon's Black Friday sale has some fantastic cheaper options currently:

Oral-B Pro 1 Electric Toothbrush: was £59.99 now £24.99 at Amazon
Oral-B’s pro oscillating electric toothbrush, complete with a bottle of 24-hour protection toothpaste, at its best-ever price. This makes for a good Christmas gift or a way to get a cheap upgrade from a manual brush. View Deal

Electric toothbrushes are one of those things where you can spend a bundle to get a few bells and whistles, but usually the cheaper models suffice.

One thing we always keep an eye out for is a pressure sensor – which is exactly what this Oral-B Pro 1 comes with. It's not going to have the longest charge, or give you prompts or anything fancy like that but it is going to tell you if you're brushing too hard, which is the main issue most people have with their teeth.

Now, if you want to get really serious about your oral health this Black Friday, we'd also recommend checking out today's discount on the excellent Waterpik:

Waterpik Nano Water Flosser: was £82.00 Now £39.99 at Amazon
Save more than half price on this small, convenient Waterpik jet flosser. Waterpik is the leading brand when it comes to dislodging food between your teeth with a tiny hose, and this portable version with a smaller reservoir can be stashed away in any old cupboard rather than remaining a permanent sinkside fixture. View Deal

The saving's not as good here, but the WaterPik is a super popular device that's really handy to have alongside your toothbrush. It's an effective and easy way to efficiently floss your teeth – much more so than the usual manual method.

Stocking filler gift ideas #3

I feel like cheap wireless earbuds are something that's always handy to have, either as a backup or an everyday pair that you don't mind losing. Here's a listing we've found in the Amazon Black Friday deals on one of our favourite budget models:

JLab Go Air Pop: was £24 now £17.99 at Amazon
These fantastic little true wireless earbuds were a stone-cold steal when we first reviewed them. Now, thanks to the early Black Friday deals at Amazon, you can save an extra 10% on these excellent affordable and comfortable buds. They boast Bluetooth 5.1, wearer-detection, three effective EQ profiles, on-ear volume control, and a whopping 32-hour battery life. Bargain.View Deal

For sheer bang for the buck, you're not going to get a better pair of wireless earbuds than the JLab Go Air Pop at this price point. Sure, they won't challenge the AirPods Pro for sound quality and they lack any noise cancellation, but they're comfortable, reliable, and have plenty of battery life. 

At this price, they're basically a steal and a great buy as either a backup or a thoughtful gift for your relative who's still walking around with those old-school wired headphones still.

The best console deal on Amazon US

Yeah, we know – you really want that PS5, but you know what? You just ain't gonna find a discount on one this Black Friday buddy. Sorry to be the bringer of bad news.

On the plus side, the retailer is offering a really, really great discount right now on the Xbox Series S, check it out:

Xbox Series S: was $299.99 now $249.99 at Amazon
Here’s a saving of $50 on the Xbox Series S for Black Friday, which brings it down to the cheapest price ever. Microsoft’s cheaper current generation console is not as powerful as the Xbox Series X, but with this deal, it’s $250 less and still capable of playing all the same games in 1440p at 120fps. A good option if you want to game on a budget.View Deal

Sure, it's not the highest-end device but it's an absolute bargain at this price. Pair this one up with a decently sized TV capable of 120Hz and you'll be off to a great start for next-gen gaming. We'll likely be posting some games recommendations later, so stay tuned for those.

Get a Sony Dolby Atmos soundbar

We've already mentioned that the Sonos Arc is a great deal today in the UK, but if you want a cheaper alternative that's still an all-in-one soundbar and includes Dolby Atmos support, the Sony HT-A3000 is ideal – and it's got deals in both the US and UK right now!

Today's best UK deal

Sony HT-A3000 Dolby Atmos soundbar: was £599 now £499 at Amazon
Looking for a compact single-box soundbar without a separate subwoofer? This Dolby Atmos bar is suitable for TVs between 58 inches and 65 inches, and features 3.1 channels of sound. That means it doesn’t have ‘true’ Dolby Atmos, but Sony’s audio processing is the best in the world for adding ‘virtual’ height and width, and it’s stunningly effective. This soundbar was only released a couple of months ago, so any discount is impressive. You get a lot of power and precision for a mid-range price.View Deal

Today's best US deal

Sony HT-A3000 Dolby Atmos soundbar: was $699 now $498 at Amazon
Perfect for mid-size TVs between 58 inches and 65 inches, this delivers 3.1 channels of sound with virtual Dolby Atmos to add height and width. Sony is the best as this kind of thing, and the end result sounds much better than most competitors. This is a great-sounding soundbar for the price – especially if you don’t want a big separate subwoofer taking up space.View Deal

If you want something bigger and beefier, or perhaps even smaller and cheaper, be sure to check out our full guide to the best Black Friday soundbar deals – with great offers on Sonos, Sony, Samsung, LG and more.
