There’s no better time to find great deals on the latest technology than Black Friday. But with thousands of offers and promotions thrown away, it can be hard to figure out which ones are really worth it. We’ve scoured all the computers, TVs, and Internet gear currently for sale on Amazon to find the best of the best.
LG C1 Series 4K OLED Smart TVs
It wouldn’t be Black Friday without a new TV, and it’s no exaggeration to say that the LG C1 series is one of the best money can buy. The TV test site RTings called it the best OLED TV they’ve ever used, garnering high marks for its stunning picture quality, attractive stand, and friendly user interface.
OLED TVs cost a little more than most 4K TVs, but they’re worth it if you’re looking for the very best picture quality. While other TVs use a backlight to illuminate the screen, each pixel emits its own light on an OLED. Basically, the bright colors are brighter, the dark ones are darker, and the contrast between the two is sharper.
TP-Link AC4000 Tri-Band WiFi Router
One of the easiest ways to speed up your Internet connection is to invest in a new wireless router. As a rule of thumb, experts recommend replacing your router every five years. And if you rent your router from your ISP, buying your own router usually pays for itself within the first year.
TP-Link has a reputation for making great internet gear and the AC4000 is one of the best routers it makes. It’s a tri-band router, which means it uses three WiFi frequency bands and automatically connects to the fastest network available. In addition to the fast speeds and long range, you also get a free lifetime subscription to TP-Link HomeCare, which adds antivirus protection and parental controls to your router and allows you to prioritize specific devices.
TECLAST TBolt 20 Pro Gaming Laptop
There’s a lot to love about this gaming laptop from TECLAST. It has an Intel Core i5-8259U processor – usually found on computers with a higher price tag – plus some nice features like a backlit keyboard, four separate speakers and a quiet cooling fan. It’s all housed in a sleek, all-metal design with a 15.6-inch HD matte display.
TCL 40-inch 1080p Smart LED Roku TV
If you’re looking for a new TV on Black Friday but don’t want to spend a lot of money, the TCL 3 series is one of the best out there. It comes with Roku built-in, so you can access thousands of streaming apps without having to switch inputs to a separate streaming device, and it can even pair with an Alexa or Google Assistant-compatible smart speaker.
It’s also an attractive TV for gamers, with a “Game” mode that gives you incredibly low input lag. Picture quality won’t be as stunning as more advanced OLED TVs, but you’ll also be paying a fraction of the price.
TP-Link AV1000 Powerline Ethernet Adapter
If your Internet connection doesn’t reach every corner of your home, a powerline Ethernet adapter is one of the best ways to extend your connection. These devices have two components: one that plugs into your router and an adapter that plugs into an outlet where you want your connection. Then connect your device to that adapter with an Ethernet cable. TP-Link’s AV1000 supports speeds of up to 1,000 Mbps and installation takes just a few minutes.
NETGEAR Wireless Access Point
If you have an office, business, or just a large area that you want to connect to the Internet, a wireless access point allows you to spread your Internet over a wider range than a typical Wi-Fi router. NETGEAR’s WAX218PA has two Wi-Fi bands, can connect up to 256 devices simultaneously, and supports WPA, WPA2, and WPA3 security standards.
