The CES gives an insight into the technology, but the futuristic Showcase in Las Vegas also has the positive side effect of lowering the prices of some currently available products. And with the Super Bowl on the horizon, you'll soon be seeing more home entertainment offerings. We looked for a few that are worth checking out.
The Polk Command soundbar with wireless subwoofer (built-in Alexa) costs $ 249 13 (usually $ 299) from January. In our review, Dieter Bohn was more impressed with the Alexa integration than with the sound performance, although for most it works well and costs less than the Sonos Beam (a better soundbar, though no subwoofer is included)
Google's Smart Kit, The exclusive Walmart bundle, which includes both the third-generation Chromecast and a Google Home Mini, costs $ 49 at Walmart (typically $ 79, which is $ 5 more than the lowest price we've seen around Black Friday). , You can send commands to Google Assistant to begin programming on Chromecast through Hulu, Netflix, YouTube, and so on. If so, this is the cheapest way.
Google's Chromecast Audio is being discontinued, so your chance to pick one up is nearing the end. If you're interested in a device that will allow virtually any speaker to easily integrate with your Google Home family, you should contact your local reseller to check inventory. Virtually every online store is sold out, although you can find a cheap price of $ 15 (usually $ 35) at Best Buy, Target or Staples.
This month, Humble Monthly subscribers will receive instant access to Yakuza 0 and Tom Clancy's The Division at PC. For $ 12 a month, Humble puts together a bunch of new games for you and there are three really cool things to become a member of: The games you should keep (and they are DRM-free), you get 10 percent from the Humble games Store, and part of the proceeds supports another charity every month. Check out this link to see previous game rewards.
AOC's G2590FX game monitor (the company, not the congressman) costs $ 189.99 at Newegg ($ 219.99). This monitor is one of the few FreeSync-compatible models that will gain G-Sync capabilities throughout the year, enabling active synchronization for Nvidia GTX 10 and RTX 20 series GPUs.
With "Best Buy," some iPad Pro (2018) models are beaten at $ 150, though savings now target the 512GB (and above) models of each size are limited. With the discount, you get the 512 GB 11-inch iPad Pro for just over the 256 GB version, which normally costs. This year's iPad Pro came out only a few months ago and despite the short-lived tendencies of the 12.9-inch model (which according to Apple is completely normal), any discount is welcome on these high-performance tablets.
The reasonably priced notebook from Samsung Flash should be available for 349 USD next week. However, pre-ordering the laptop will give you a 128GB microSD card. This Windows 10 laptop has the full operating system and a fingerprint sensor. With only 64GB of memory built in, the extra capacity afforded by this pre-order benefit will be very useful. This offer is valid until Monday, January 14th.
Status Audio will release the BT One headphone on February 15th, but if you buy it in advance, you save $ 20 and get a free set of IEM-2X earbuds. The wireless BT One headphones are equipped with Bluetooth 5.0 and USB-C chargers and come with a hard shell.
