The picture (nice contrast) and sound quality are really good for this price. It has one of the better ratings for a budget-class television. I currently use it in my main bedroom, but I can see it being used in the living room or den if you are looking for a good television in this price range,” .

“I bought a 5″ and an 8″ when they were on sale. I love both of them, but the 8″ is exceptionally great! I love everything it can do. Two of my favorite things is it links to my Ring doorbell so it will announce people at my door and automatically display them.

I love that when it’s full it goes back to the dock to empty, then picks up where it left off. I mapped the main floor of my house but can also use it on other floors. When it’s done on the other floors I get a notification that it can’t find its way back to the dock. When I go to get it, it’s waiting for me right where I left it,”

The keyboard fits my typing style well and the keys feel great. The keys are not squishy nor clicky. They lean more stiff but not clicky at all,” . “Comfortable come to mind. The backlit keyboard – white LEDs – really allows this keyboard to be used in low light conditions. I didn’t expect a backlit keyboard at this sub-$300 price point. I’m very pleased with this device. The screen is very easy to read and brightness isn’t an issue. I’ve not experienced glare with this screen, either.”

“I bought these to wear at work when I need to focus. I’m in a cube, and it’s hard to concentrate when I can hear everything going on around me. When I turn the noise-cancelling feature on, I can’t hear any of it, the difference is really amazing,” . “The ambient sound setting is nice, too, if I want to be able to hear anyone but not have to take the headphones off.”

$123$250Save $127

That said, you will be amazed at how simple these buds are to operate. Long hold to activate the noise cancellation; just that simple. The color selection and the features you think would price these much higher; however, not the case. My first purchase was the blue, then the second pair was gray,” . “The rich bass comes right in the ear. You can hear the bass thumping, which I need when working out. I like the feel and the ability to place the buds in my ear using the handles. The noise cancellation worked just as good as other headphones I’ve had…. Great product!!”

$15$60Save $45

Fans of the MCU should get excited about one of the best superhero games to date. Take control of Star Lord and t he rest of the Guardians and fight your way across the galaxy in this action-adventure title.

“A great game and fully enjoyable even without knowing anything about the Marvel universe — which would be incredible at this point, but that’s a different point. The game is very linear but has lots of collectibles and optional dialog, so it doesn’t lack depth or anything. Overall on the shorter side at somewhere between 15–20 hours (depending on how thorough you are), but every hour is enjoyable. If you like adventures and puzzles, I highly recommend it!” .

No fuss installing, no fuss setting it up, it was basically plug-and-play. Haven’t had any complaints from the PlayStation about it, either. Would definitely recommend.”

The Xbox Series X is a 4K-capable, digital-only console that makes swapping from one game to another a breeze. With its Dolby Vision HDR compatibility, you’ll experience the beauty of video games in a way you never have before.

“After playing on my Xbox Series S for a month now, I can say I am happy with this little beast console! This console can play new Xbox One and old Xbox 360 games if it’s backwards compatible. The fast load times are amazing on current Xbox games and the increase frame rates are also very much welcomed,” one customer said. “I downloaded a lot of past games just to try out how it stacks against my old Xbox One X — there just no comparison to how stable it is.

When is Black Friday?

Black Friday is on Friday, November 25. It’s the day after Thanksgiving and is historically a great time to get next-level deals on a range of must-have items.

Does Black Friday have deals on everything?

Not everything is on sale for Black Friday, but a lot is. You’ll see impressive discounts on items such as air fryers, TVs, vacuums, furniture, sneakers, clothes, electric toothbrushes, makeup and so much more. If there’s an item you’ve been waiting to go on sale, it’s most likely to be marked down during Black Friday season.

Does every store have sales?

Not every store has sales for Black Friday, but many do. That includes major retailers like , , , , , , and more.

Will inflation impact Black Friday this year?

consumers spent nearly $9 billion on Black Friday, just slightly less than the year prior — proving that the economic volatility triggered by the pandemic most likely impacted spending habits. Experts say it’s unclear how inflation will affect Black Friday behavior this year, but they have their theories.

“According to our survey, 70% of shoppers are taking inflation into consideration this year,” confirms McGrath. That means people are not necessarily waiting for Black Friday itself to maximize savings, and instead “beginning their holiday shopping earlier than ever in an effort to spread out cash flow,” adds Gall.

To meet this demand, major retailers are already launching big ‘pre-sale’ events leading up to Black Friday. “Spreading out their shopping will help to prevent [consumers’] budgets from taking a hit all at once,” notes Ramhold. One possible caveat? “If starting prices are higher, then that means [potentially] higher deal prices when all is said and done.”

Are supply chain delays and excess inventory still a thing this year?

“Any supply chain issues we’re seeing this year aren’t at the same level as those in 2021, but that doesn’t mean they’re totally gone,” says Ramhold of the pandemic-related shortages and delivery delays we experienced last year. So, barring any worst-case scenarios, we should be fine in that regard,

“Retailers have had a year to plan to avoid the massive delivery delays we saw last year, so shopping Black Friday should leave plenty of time for stuff to arrive before the holidays,” notes McGrath. “But that’s assuming no big surprises or snags. Retailers are still overstocked with pandemic-popular items, like small home goods, countertop appliances and casual clothing. So expect good deals in those categories.”
