Get the larger 12.9-inch iPad Pro with Apple M1 processor for $899
There’s no better display in the tablet world (yet) than the Mini LED panel on the 12.9-inch iPad Pro of 2021. While Mini LED’s aren’t very popular just yet — though we saw more of them announced at CES 2022 — It is attractive because it achieves deeper black levels, high contrast ratio, and high brightness. It’s also more expensive than a traditional LCD panel, so any dollar saved could come in handy.
If you want an iPad Pro with a compact LED light, we’ve got a big discount to share. Apple’s Wi-Fi-equipped 128GB base storage costs $100. This model usually runs for $1,099, but Amazon sells it in silver for $999. The 2021 iPad Pro also packs Apple’s stellar M1 processor, ensuring its performance can not only push all those pixels, but do so quickly and with enough performance promise to likely stay that way for years to come. If you prefer more storage, you can get the 256GB configuration for $1,099 at Walmart (also $100 off). Read our review.
The Switch’s PowerA Fusion Pro Wireless Controller is an interesting alternative to the Nintendo Switch Pro console. Amazon has the Fusion Pro in black and white for $65.99, saving $34 off its regular price.
It might be worth considering the PowerA Fusion Pro if you want to try something as close as possible to the Switch-equivalent of an Xbox Elite controller. It has customizable analog sticks and optional rear paddle buttons. When connected to your Switch, the 3.5mm headphone jack can deliver game audio to your headphones. It also lacks a few things found on the Switch Pro controller, like Rumble and Amiibo support. Read our review.
From a cute white console to a nice white camcorder, the Wyze Cam v3 is an inexpensive home camera that supports 1080p recording with weatherproofing for outdoor use. Amazon outfitted it with an LED headlight for just $36.60, which saves about $16 and makes it an excellent option for a front door monitor, like a small spotlight for a much cheaper price.
The Wyze Cam v3 also supports both color and black and white night vision, so its ability to see in the dark is very good even when lights are not used. These compact cameras are among the most affordable available, offering powerful video quality with motion detection, two-way audio, and support for both Alexa and Google Assistant.
While recent CES 2022 announcements featured new innovations coming to OLED TVs, the promise of better technology will eventually bring us more and more expensive OLEDs. For now, the 48-inch LG A1 OLED is priced at $846.99 on Amazon, saving $353 in MSRP. The A1 may not be the top tier in LG’s lineup, but if you don’t need a giant TV, you can’t go wrong with saving money on this affordable panel.
OLEDs are generally a great choice for deeper black levels and excellent contrast, but you don’t have to break the budget. We’ve featured the popular LG C1 OLED TVs a few times, though today’s deal on its entry-level A1 counterpart fetches less than $1,000 — not something you see every day for OLED. Unlike the C1, which has a 120Hz refresh rate and HDMI 2.1 ports, the A1 beats at 60Hz and doesn’t support 4K at 120Hz. Still, it looks like a solid TV.
