On the Samsung side, the 1TB T7 Shield SSD is back on sale for just $100, and you can still get up to $200 off the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4.

2021 Apple TV 4K
The Apple TV 4K is currently down to a record low of $120. It’s our favorite high-end streaming device, thanks to its support for 4K HDR content with Dolby Vision and its superb, redesigned Siri remote.

12.9 inch iPad Pro
The latest 12.9-inch iPad Pro remains on sale for $200, so you can pick one up for as little as $900. We gave the tablet a score of 87 for its M1 chipset which offers incredible performance, its great screen and the new center stage cameras.

Macbook Air M1
If you’re willing to splurge on an older model, the MacBook Air M1 is currently on sale for $850, which is almost its all-time low. One of Apple’s first devices to feature the M1 chipset, it impressed us when it first came out with its blazing-fast performance, excellent keyboard and trackpad, and lack of fan noise.

Apple’s AirPods Max are $120, down to $429, which is the cheapest price we’ve seen on Amazon. We gave the headphones 84 points for their excellent sound quality, comfortable fit and powerful ANC.

Amazon Echo Show 5
The Echo Show 5 is more than half the price right now, down to just $40. This is one of our favorite small smart displays, partly because its size makes it a great alarm clock. We like the simple design, the good sound quality and the tap-to-snooze function.

Samsung T7 shield
The 1TB model of the Samsung T7 Shield SSD is back on sale for $100, which is pretty much the best we’ve seen. This rugged drive has a rugged exterior that can survive drops from nearly 3 feet, as well as an IP65 rating for dust and water resistance. It also has the same read/write speeds as the other T7 models and works with a range of devices including PC, Mac, Android and even some gaming consoles.
