Vizio M-Series Quantum 58-inch TV for $479 ($100 off)

The Vizio M-Series lineup (8/10, WIRED Recommends) is among our favorites if you don't want to spend much, thanks to its excellent local dimming, which gives it solid contrast, as well as its Smartcast interface. The latter makes it simple to share your screen from your laptop or phone to the TV.

Hisense U8G ULED 55-Inch 4K TV for $698 ($52 off)

This Hisense U8G (8/10, WIRED Recommends) is a great choice if you're looking to play games on your TV. Its 120-Hz refresh rate allows for incredibly smooth and responsive gameplay, and also makes it excellent for sports. Plus it has a nice-looking stand if that's the sort of thing that matters to you.

TCL 55-inch 6-Series 4K TV for $675 ($75 off)

TCL excels at making great TVs at much lower prices than its competitors, and this 55-inch 6-Series set (9/10, WIRED Recommends) is no exception. Its mini-LED backlighting enables some staggering contrast levels, plus it comes with both a Roku interface and Chromecast support built right in.

Nakamichi Shockwafe Pro 7.2 Dolby Atmos Soundbar for $750 ($50 off)

This soundbar system from Nakamichi isn't cheap, but it is the bassiest we've tested. Two mega subwoofers provide enough bass to shake the foundations of the Earth. Or at least feel like it. It also comes with a pair of rear surround speakers, to give you better surround sound than most soundbars provide on their own.

Video Game DealsDeathloop (PS4/5) for $27 ($8 off)

From the developer behind Dishonored and Prey, Arkane's latest is a time-loop-based stealth shooter. Rather than working your way through a linear story, this one finds you on an island where every time you die, time starts again. It's a complex shooter that challenges the player to fight smarter, rather than go in with guns blazing. The PC version is also on sale for $28 ($10 off).

Jackbox Party Pack Games up to 50 Percent off

The Jackbox Party Pack typically has a few good games each—except for Party Pack 7, the only truly perfect party pack—so you'll often find yourself buying two or three to get all the games you like. Fortunately, all of the games are on sale right now, with some packs as much as 50 percent off. Grab a couple and make your next game night a blast.

The Last of Us Part II (PS4/5) for $24 ($16 off)

The Last of Us II had big shoes to fill. And whether or not you feel like it broke free from its predecessor, it's hard to deny that the latest installment from Naughty Dog's award-winning series is one worth playing.

SteelSeries Arctis 9X Wireless Gaming Headset for $169 ($31 off)

The SteelSeries Arctis 9X is one of our favorite wireless gaming headsets for the Xbox Series X/S. It pairs directly to your console using the same method that your controllers use to pair, so you don't need any clunky dongles. The retractable mic also provides excellent monitoring so you can hear what you sound like when you talk.

Just Dance 2022 (PS4/5) for $20 ($10 off)

The Just Dance series is a classic rhythm game for doing exactly what it says in the name: You dance. No bulky instruments, no finicky dance pads. In the past, it required a special camera, but if you don't have one, in Just Dance 2022 you can use your smartphone as a controller. It's also on sale for Xbox Series X/S.

Camera Gear DealsPanasonic Lumix S5 Full-Frame Mirrorless Camera for $1,610 ($100 off)

This full-frame mirrorless from Panasonic is one of our favorite cameras if you want to shoot professional-grade videos. Normally, we've seen its best price around $1,700 (though it's often listed higher than that), but now it's an extra $90 off, which is the lowest we've seen it.

Godox SL-60 LED Video Light for $120 ($19 off)

It doesn't matter how good your camera is if you don't have enough light on your subject. This LED video light from Godox comes with a dial on the back to adjust its brightness, as well as a remote you can use to change the color temperature. It's a handy workhorse for most projects. 

Rode Lavalier Go Omnidirectional Mic for $60 ($19 off)

Lav mics are an incredibly cheap way to get better audio from your video shoots or vlogs without having to go through a ton of effort to set up complicated equipment. This mic from Rode plugs into any 3.5-mm port, or you can pair it with Røde's wireless transmitter system.
