Today’s Best Tech Deals

SanDisk 1TB SSD | $100 | Amazon

Nope, it’s not a mistake: This is a 1TB SSD for $100, which is about $5 off the absolute lowest price we’ve ever seen. And if you didn’t already know, replacing a hard drive with an SSD is one of the most worthwhile upgrades you perform on a computer.

Vizio 5.1.4 Dolby Atmos Sound Bar | $900 | Amazon

While 5.1 or 7.1 surround sound involves placing speakers around your room on a single plane, the concept behind Dolby Atmos is to give audio an element of height. If you don’t want to install speakers in your ceiling though, this Vizio system is one of the easiest and cheapest ways to pull off the effect.

At first glance, this looks like a 5.1 system similar to Vizio’s excellent sound bars. The main bar at the front of the room carries three channels, the two satellite speakers (truly wireless, in this case) provide your rear channels, and the wireless subwoofer handles the bass. But this being an Atmos-certified 5.1.4 system, it also includes four speakers (two built into the sound bar, and one in each of the satellites) that face upwards to bounce the Atmos channels off your ceiling, and back into your ears.

The effect won’t be quite as convincing as true ceiling-mounted speakers, but you won’t do better for this price. Gizmodo covered a similar Vizio system (a 5.1.2 version), and came away impressed. This model normally sells for $1000, but today on Amazon, it’s $100 off.

Apple Watch Series 3 38mm GPS | $199 | Amazon
Apple Watch Series 3 42mm GPS | $229 | Amazon
Apple Watch Series 4 40mm Cellular | $450 | Amazon | Clip the $34 coupon
Apple Watch Series 4 44mm Cellular | $505 | Amazon

The release of the new Apple Watch Series 4 coincided with a price drop for the still-excellent Series 3. And today at Amazon, you can save even more.

This deal is valid for both the 38mm ($199) and 42mm ($229) GPS models. Sadly, the cellular version isn’t on sale this time, but these deals are a match for Black Friday.

Can’t live without the larger screen, faster processor, and EKG features of the Series 4? The GPS + Cellular models are also on sale, particularly the 40mm version, which has an extra $34 coupon on top of a sale price. (40mm Cellular | 44mm Cellular)

Anker PowerLIne II USB-C to Lightning Cable | $14 | Amazon | Promo code ANKERCTL

Praise the charging gods, you can actually buy certified third party USB-C to Lightning cables now, which allow you to use USB-C PD chargers to fast-charge modern iPhones from 0% to 50% in under 30 minutes.

Anker was (naturally) one of the first out of the gate with the new cables, and now, they’re on sale for the first time ever. Use promo code ANKERCTL to get a 3′ PowerLine II cable for just $14. That’s $5 less than Apple charges for the equivalent cable, and Anker’s are more durable, and include a lifetime warranty if it does ever wear out.

1st Generation Echo Show | $90 | Woot

Its 7″ screen isn’t as big as the new model, and it’s not the most attractive gadget ever designed, but the original Echo Show is still a great smart home hub, and it’s particularly tempting at just $90.

This deal is only available today from Woot, and even though it’s brand new, it’s actually $30 less than the last price Amazon’s offered on refurbs of this model.

Eve Smart Power Strip with HomeKit | $90 | Amazon | Clip the $10 coupon

When is a three-outlet power strip worth $90? Maybe when each outlet can be controlled individually with your phone, and when it can track your energy consumption.

It’s not the only smart power strip we’ve seen, and it’s not the cheapest, but it does have one big advantage that almost every smart outlet and power strip lacks: Apple HomeKit support. That means you can control it with Siri, or build it into scenes with Apple’s home app, mixing and matching it with Philips Hue lights, smart locks, and anything else that your iPhone can talk to directly. Just clip the $10 coupon to get the deal.

Three Years Private Internet Access | $99 | This Week Only

Update: This offer was supposed to expire Friday, but as of now, it’s still available.

Our readers’ favorite VPN recently raised prices for the first time ever, and the company’s best-value (and Kinja Deals-exclusive) three-year plan is going away at the end of the week, so this is your last chance to subscribe at the best per-month price available.

Three year plans aren’t available to the general public at all, but if you click this link, you can get three years for $99, which works out to just $2.75 per month. That’s only $9 more than it was cost to the price hike, and while shorter plan lengths are available, none come close to the per-month pricing of this three-year membership. For example, the publicly available two-year plan costs about $84, and a month-to-month plan will set you back $10 per month.

If you subscribe to the three-year plan today, you’ll be able to continue to renew it at the same price for the life of your subscription, so this is a great chance to lock in a a terrific deal.
