Best Black Friday 2017 deals at Staples

Staples' Black Friday sale separates itself from the pack with a focus on business technology. Printers, laptops, printers, monitors and more printers make up the lion's share of deals. And there are some good ones to be had. 

If you're looking to buy a computer for the less tech-savvy folks in your life, this may be the place to do it. Staples is offering "free tech support" for 30 days with the purchase of any laptop or PC through January 31, 2018.

Staples stores will open at 7 a.m. local time on Nov. 24 but you may be better off staying home, given that all of these promotions are also available online starting on Thanksgiving Day. And for those who will be shopping from the couch, Staples is offering free next-day delivery on orders of $50 or more.

Google Chromecast
2 of 25 CNET

Google Chromecast for $25 ($10 off)

One of the least expensive streamers gets even less expensive on Black Friday. Staples and Target are offering Google's wireless video dongle for $25. It's a good price, but note that Walmart's got them for $20.

Amazon Fire TV Stick
3 of 25 Sarah Tew/CNET

Amazon Fire TV Stick with Alexa voice remote for $25 ($15 off)

This small and cheap streamer is a no-brainer for Prime members. Use Alexa for voice access to all of Amazon's movies and TV shows. (This deal is available at many other retailers, too.)

Google Home Mini
4 of 25 Chris Monroe/CNET

Google Home Mini for $30 ($20 off)

Staples' sweetens its deal on the great Google Home Mini with a $10 Visa Gift Card, which brings the net price down to $20. Of course, that's the same price you'll find on Black Friday at Walmart and Best Buy.

Amazon Echo Dot (2nd Generation)
5 of 25 Taylor Martin/CNET

Amazon Echo Dot for $30 ($20 off)

The puckish Dot delivers all of Alexa's smarts in a tiny container. Nearly every other retailer will be selling it on Black Friday at this price.

Amazon Echo Show
6 of 25 Chris Monroe/CNET

Amazon Echo Show for $180 ($50 off)

The Echo Show offers everything you love about Alexa plus a display and touchscreen controls. This is the lowest price we've seen for Amazon's hands-free video calling command center.

Amazon Echo (2nd Generation)
7 of 25 Tyler Lizenby/CNET

Amazon Echo (2nd Gen) for $80 ($20 off)

The 2017 edition Echo offers better sound than the Dot and delivers all of the wonderful abilities of Alexa. Staples and most of the other big box retailers will let it go for less than $100 during Black Friday this year.

Amazon Fire 7
8 of 25 Amazon

Amazon Fire 7 for $30 ($20 off)

We didn't think you could find a better value when the Fire 7 tablet was selling for $50. At $30, it's a lock for best tablet value in its price range. (It will be available at Amazon and elsewhere at this price, too.)

Amazon Fire HD 10
9 of 25 David Carnoy/CNET

Amazon Fire HD 10 for $100 ($50 off)

Like the Fire 7, the Fire HD 10 delivers more value per dollar than any other tablet in its price range. It doesn't have everything you'd get from an iPad, but it comes equipped with a high-res display, all of Alexa's skills and costs less than half as much.

Amazon Kindle Paperwhite
10 of 25 Sarah Tew/CNET

Amazon Kindle Paperwhite for $90 ($30 off)

An HD screen made this already excellent product even better. Staples' Black Friday price is a good one for this great e-reader.

Samsung Galaxy Tab A
11 of 25 Josh Miller/CNET

Samsung Galaxy Tab A for $180 ($50 off)

This decent tablet from Samsung is overpriced at $230, especially with less expensive standouts available from Amazon. At $180, however, it's a competent alternative for those who prefer the Android ecosystem.

Lenovo IdeaPad 110
12 of 25 Lenovo

Lenovo IdeaPad 110 for $220 ($130 off)

We reviewed the 11.6-inch IdeaPad 110s Windows 10 laptop back in April, which benefitted from a great keyboard and solid specs for the money. Staples is selling the larger 15.6-inch version, with otherwise similar specs, for $220.

HP Pavilion x360
13 of 25 Sarah Tew/CNET

HP Pavilion x360 for $600 ($120 off)

Staples is discounting the 15.6-inch version of the x360, which has some supersized specs including a 7th gen Intel Core i5 and 1TB SATA hard drive. It's a good deal for the price.

Lenovo Flex 5
14 of 25 Sarah Tew/CNET

Lenovo Flex 5 for $580 ($200 off)

The Flex 5's 15.6-inch display and solid speakers make it a good choice for video, music and games. And Staples' price makes it a good choice for Black Friday.

Dell SE2717HR
15 of 25 Dell

Dell 27-inch LCD monitor for $100 ($150 off)

We don't know a whole lot about Dell's SE2717HR LCD. Still, a 27-inch LCD with full HD (1,920x1,080) resolution is a pretty decent deal.

Dell UltraSharp U2412M
16 of 25 Josh MIller/CNET

Dell UltraSharp U2412M for $170 ($30 off)

This 24-inch LCD monitor was a CNET Editors' Choice back in 2012 when it retailed for closer to $350. But you can snag it for less than half that price during Staples' Black Friday sale.

Dell 28-inch Ultra HD 4K LED Monitor
17 of 25 Sarah Tew/CNET

Dell 28-inch Ultra HD 4K LED Monitor for $250 ($250 off)

Dell's original sticker price was too high for a decent but non-distinct gaming monitor. Staples' Black Friday price makes it worth a second look.

Netgear Nighthawk AC2600
18 of 25 Josh Miller/CNET

Netgear Nighthawk AC2600 for $130 ($100 off)

The Nighthawk delivers fast connectivity and superb range that can reach any corner of a large home. A steal at $130.

HP OfficeJet 4650
19 of 25 HP

HP OfficeJet 4650 for $50 ($50 off)

We haven't tested the OfficeJet 4650 -- but we reviewed the OfficeJet 4630, which delivered professional-quality prints and cloud connectivity. For $50, we're giving this one the thumbs up.

Brother HL-L2320D
20 of 25 Staples

Brother HL-L2320D for $50 ($50 off)

We reviewed this model's predecessor and found it to be a strong choice for folks looking to print black-and-white documents on the cheap. Staple's price is the best we've seen for this laser printer.

HP LaserJet M130fw
21 of 25 HP

HP LaserJet M130fw for $130 ($130 off)

We don't know much about the LaserJet M130fw apart from the fact that it's a wireless-ready laser printer that also copies, scans and faxes. And that's a lot for $130.

HP LaserJet Pro M227fdw
22 of 25 HP

HP LaserJet Pro M227fdw for $165 ($165 off)

Like the slightly less expensive M130fw, this multifunction device prints, scans, copies and faxes. But for $35 more, you get faster printing and automatic duplexing.

HP OfficeJet Pro 8720
23 of 25 HP

HP OfficeJet Pro 8720 for $200 ($100 off)

We haven't reviewed this wireless printer that also scans and copies documents. But we do know that Staples will throw in a $50 Visa Gift Card when you buy it, bringing the net price down to $150. 

Epson Expression Home XP-440
24 of 25 HP

Epson Expression Home XP-440 for $50 ($10 off)

We reviewed the XP-440's predecessor and found it to be super compact and ultra-reliable. At $50, it's a no-brainer for families and students who need color printing and scanning that fits in relatively tight spaces.
