The Bose SoundTrue Around-ear II is a very comfortable over-ear wired headphone (no noise-cancelling). List price is $179.95, but Bose has them for $99.95 on Black Friday and on Saturday. They come in black or blue and iOS and Android versions.
This 32-inch TV with built-in Roku smarts is available online now for $125 (list price is $228), although you'll have to pick it up in-store.
The new Beats Ep, a wired model, is the company's most affordable on-ear headphone. It's reinforced with stainless steel and comes in black, white, red and blue, and sounds pretty close to the wired Solo2, which costs around $150. The Beats Ep is available for $30 off or $99.95 at Best Buy's website and at a number of stores on Black Friday.
The cheapest 4K TV we've seen this season is one of the cheapest, period. And it actually has "Chromecast built in" (a $35 value), but it's in-store only. You'll have to be quick to grab this deal. It's a doorbuster at Best Buy.
Several retailers, including Best Buy and GameStop, are offering $50 off any Xbox One console/bundle, but the best post-Black Friday deal we've seen is from Walmart: $250 for a Xbox One S 500GB bundle with your choice of Battlefield 1 or Minecraft, your choice of a 4K Blu-ray (one of four) and a $20 gift card.
Some of the best PlayStation 4 bundles were Black Friday-only deals. But you can still get the new, slimmed-down PS4 bundled with Uncharted 4 -- a truly awesome game -- for just $250 at many retailers, including GameStop. That's $50 off the list price, and still a great deal.
Bargain-basement tablet ahoy: The 7-inch Amazon Fire is just $33.33 at Amazon, Target, Best Buy and Staples this Black Friday weekend. It's the definition of entry-level, and comes with only 8GB of memory, but there's an expansion slot for additional memory. Not a bad pick for a kid with a parent who's an Amazon Prime member and gets access to a lot of free movies, TV, music and games.
The Microsoft Store has a pretty decent deal on last year's Surface Book: $1,500 ($400 savings) for a model with a Core i5 processor, 8GB of memory, 256GB of solid-state storage and a discrete GPU -- though not the more powerful one that Microsoft just introduced. Best Buy is also offering discounts on certain configurations, and Costco is selling a version with a Core i5 processor and the Surface Dock for "$250 off."
Quick review: Huawei's Honor 8 is a slick phone that takes good photos from its dual-lens camera. It has a fingerprint reader, OK battery life and is easy to use one-handed.
The Bebop is one of the safer camera drones available thanks to its foam body and propellers that stop the instant they come in contact with anything. Parrot has improved the quality of the camera through firmware updates and also added features such as subject tracking and autofollow. Microsoft has it on sale for $400.
