Amazon Black Friday deals: The best tech at killer prices

Fri, 24 Nov 2017 00:16:00 -0800

Amazon is ground zero for Black Friday shopping, but not all of its deals are worth your attention. That's where we come in: We've sifted through Amazon's staggering amount of Black Friday deals, and cherry-picked the very best deals in the tech categories you care about most.

A note about Amazon Prime deals: You can sign up for a 30-day Prime membership if you're not already a member. This also gives you earlier access to some of Amazon's limited-time Lightning deals—which we won't be covering in this article. We'll be eating turkey instead.

Black Friday 2017: The best graphics card deals

Thu, 23 Nov 2017 21:14:00 -0800

With cryptocurrency miners driving graphics card demand through the roof, you won’t find any jaw-droppingly good graphics card deals this Black Friday. But if you’ve been resenting the idea of overpaying for a GPU, this is the time to buy. During Black Friday 2017 you’ll finally be able to purchase video cards without paying through the nose. If you’re lucky, you might even snag a free game with it.

Look to Radeon for most of the best Black Friday graphics card deals. GeForce discounts are much more rare. Don’t get me wrong, even Radeon prices are still inflated with these “deals”—you won’t find a Radeon RX 570 selling for anywhere near its $170 suggested retail price. But you can find capable 1080p options with 4GB of onboard memory at around $200 for the first time in a very long time, among a few other gems.

Black Friday 2017: The best early deals

Thu, 23 Nov 2017 21:10:00 -0800

Black Friday is no longer just the day after Thanksgiving. Now deals spill out willy-nilly from retailers at almost any given time in November.

Just a year or two ago, most discounts weren’t any good. But that’s changed.

While the deals that command headlines (those so-called “doorbusters”) are typically still available on only Thanksgiving or Black Friday, some worthwhile sales are already trickling out now. 

We’ve begun rounding those up here, so keep an eye peeled for further updates as the days tick by and we add new deals as we spot them. And don’t forget: Holiday return windows have just expanded (most will run into early January), so you can buy now and repent at leisure—assuming you can float the cash.

Black Friday deals: The cheapest gaming PC you can build

Thu, 23 Nov 2017 21:05:00 -0800

The one thing we like more than building our own PCs is doing so for very little cash. Now’s the best time for that: Black Friday deals often include amazingly low prices on components, fantastic combo and bundle deals, and extras like a copy of a video game.

Last year, I decided to see just how low you could go using Black Friday deals. I came up with three budget gaming builds, all based around a Micro Center combo deal on AMD’s FX-8350 and a compatible AM3+ motherboard. The cheapest of them was $350, inclusive of the Windows license.

Black Friday laptop buyer's guide

Thu, 23 Nov 2017 10:00:00 -0800

It’s easy to feel overwhelmed by the deluge of Black Friday laptop deals seemingly falling from the sky. The prices can be very tempting, but with an abundance of configuration options, it can be hard to know which deal offers the most value. 

That's especially so if you're not a tech expert and the recommendations you've gotten don't fit your needs. So in this guide, we walk you through the different specs to consider in a Windows laptop, and how those decisions change depending on the price range, whether it’s a sub-$500 model or sub-$750. We also examine the specs of some current laptops and provide examples of how to separate the wheat from the chaff.

Black Friday Amazon deals: Price drops for Echos, Kindles and Fire tablets

Wed, 22 Nov 2017 21:05:00 -0800

When the cheapest Kindle e-reader drops to $50, it’s difficult to resist snagging one on an impulse buy. Appealing to our most reptilian consumer instincts is just how Amazon rolls, and—right on schedule—the retail behemoth-cum-hardware manufacturer is dropping prices across its product lines.

Here are all the Black Friday deals for the Amazon Echo, Kindle, and Fire tablet lines. We’re also including links to our own coverage of the price-dropped devices (many of which are best in their categories, the Amazon pedigree notwithstanding). Amazon says these deals will end at the stroke of midnight on Monday, Nov. 27.

Black Friday deals: PC and PC component steals

You can snag great deals on PCs, PC components, and PC accessories during Black Friday—if you know where to look. Not all cheap laptops are the same, for example. One retailer might offer a newer processor, more storage, or more RAM in a system for the same price as its competition.

AMD Ryzen and Threadripper CPUs get massive price drops for Black Friday deals

Wed, 22 Nov 2017 15:34:00 -0800

Black Friday might be a few days away, but you can already find some smoking hot deals on AMD processors. AMD’s mainstream Ryzen and monstrous Threadripper chips dropped to borderline fire sale prices over the weekend. In the case of some of the higher-end chips, the discounts shave hundreds of dollars off suggested retail pricing.

Let’s split this up into separate Ryzen and Threadripper sections. We’re mostly linking to Amazon but similar pricing for AMD’s hardware can be found at many online retailers. Micro Center is offering even better deals on many of AMD’s high-end Ryzen CPUs, but they’re available for in-store pickup only. Bummer. And Micro Center’s deals on Threadripper are downright wild.

VyprVPN review: A good non-American, American VPN

Wed, 22 Nov 2017 08:05:00 -0800

VyprVPN in brief:

P2P allowed: Yes

Business location: Switzerland

Number of servers: 700+

Number of country locations: 64

Monthly cost: $5 billed annually

Golden Frog’s VyprVPN is a well-known and popular name among VPN aficionados. The price is affordable enough with two payment tiers, the speeds are good, and the company says it owns and manages 100 percent of its infrastructure. It’s also got something of a storied history—as far as Internet companies go—as it was founded by two co-founders of Giganews, a popular Usenet provider.

How to buy the perfect PC case

Wed, 22 Nov 2017 06:37:00 -0800

No matter whether you treat your computer as the centerpiece of your home office or just stuff it under your desk, buying the right PC case matters.

At a minimum, you want to pick a PC case that’s the right size for your needs and has room for all your hardware and USB devices. But some PC cases offer much, much more. Spacious innards, lower temperatures, muffled sound, extensive water-cooling support, and fancy-schmancy tempered glass panels or RGB lighting are just the tip of the iceberg.

Here’s a guide to buying a PC case that’s perfect for you. This is just the first step in your DIY journey; be sure to check out PCWorld’s guide to building a PC, too.

Android 8 Oreo is here: What's new, what's changed, and what's awesome

Wed, 22 Nov 2017 06:03:00 -0800

Get your phones ready because Android Oreo is finally here. (That’s right, it’s called Oreo, not Orangina.) After months of betas, an eclipse-themed countdown, and the usual rampant naming speculation, Google has lifted the veil of secrecy from Android O’s full name, and we can start looking ahead to what confectionery Android P will adopt. (My money’s on Petit Four.)

But its name isn’t the only thing that’s sweet about Android 8. While it might not be as jam-packed with features as other Android releases, Android Oreo has plenty of features that make it a must-download, from picture-in-picture to notification changes that will help you keep annoying alerts at bay. So bring your sweet tooth because there’s a lot to chew on.

Asus VivoBook S510 review: Weak battery life hobbles this capable ultralight

Wed, 22 Nov 2017 03:00:00 -0800

With its thin-and-light shell, jumbo display, Intel Core i7 processor and mid-range price tag, the Asus VivoBook S510 aims to be a sleek-yet-roomy ultrabook for folks who like to get things done. But while we're impressed by its looks, feel, and agility with day-to-day office tasks, the S510 falls painfully short in a key area: battery life.

Price and specifications

We tested the $799 version (SKU S510UA-DB71) of the VivoBook S510, which measures 14.2 x 9.6 x 0.7 inches and weighs just 3.7 pounds (or 4.1 pounds with the compact power brick). That's surprisingly light for an ultrabook with a 15.6-inch display—typically, we’d expect an ultrabook of this size to exceed four pounds.

Black Friday deals: Best sales on TVs, speakers, and streaming video devices

Tue, 21 Nov 2017 14:17:00 -0800

It's a jungle out there
(image)

Yep, it’s that time of year again. And true to tradition, Black Friday presents its usual challenges for the consumer looking to score a great deal.

To be sure, there are many great deals to be found, but they can often be obscured by loads of “deals” to be leery of.

That seems particularly true of home-theater deals, which can present a minefield of sub-par models from the big brands, outdated tech, and trumped-up “bargains” that aren’t actually that at all.

Neverwinter Nights is getting an Enhanced Edition compatible with 15 years of mods

Tue, 21 Nov 2017 12:00:00 -0800

Beamdog’s going to run out of classic RPGs to remaster here soon. Baldur’s Gate, Baldur’s Gate II, Planescape: Torment, and Icewind Dale have all received overhauled Enhanced Editions so far, and today Beamdog announced yet another—Neverwinter Nights: Enhanced Edition.

Neverwinter Nights was an ambitious project for its time. It ditched the Infinity Engine for the Aurora Engine, which in many ways made it age poorer than its predecessors. 2002-era 3D looks quite a bit worse than late-’90s 2.5D.

src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/_exxVIpfA3s?ecver=1" width="560" height="315" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen="allowfullscreen" data-mce-fragment="1">

The official Neverwinter Nights campaign was also just one tiny part of the package (and, most people would probably say, the worst part). Unlike Baldur’s Gate and its ilk, Neverwinter Nights was designed with a pseudo-MMO layer where dozens of players could log into a persistent server to play custom campaigns. Those campaigns aren’t anything to scoff at, either—BioWare released the Aurora toolkit alongside Neverwinter Nights, and there are literally thousands of user-generated campaigns (or “modules”) on the internet, some of them considered true classics.

The best graphics cards for PC gaming

Tue, 21 Nov 2017 08:07:00 -0800

“What graphics card within my budget gives me the best bang for my buck?”

That simple question cuts to the core of what people hunting for a new graphics card look for: the most oomph they can afford. Sure, the technological leaps behind each new GPU can be interesting on their own, but most everyone just wants to crank up the detail settings on Far Cry and get right to playing.

Last updated 11/21/2017 to include a video on the best graphics cards right now and address current graphics card prices throughout. 

Answering the question can be a bit trickier than it seems. Raw performance is a big part of it, but factors like noise, the driver experience, and supplemental software all play a role in determining which graphics card to buy, too.

Sonos One smart speaker review: Sonos and Alexa, a match made in heaven

Tue, 21 Nov 2017 07:54:00 -0800

Sonos has multi-room audio down to a science, but it desperately needed a speaker capable of voice recognition if it was to fend off the veritable flood of smart speakers coming to market. The Sonos One is that speaker.

Update: Effective November 21, you can ask Alexa to play music on Sonos speakers directly from your Spotify account—by default if you set Spotify as your default library in the Alexa app. 

It sounds better than the last entry-level Sonos speaker, it’s compatible with Amazon’s Alexa digital assistant, and it will be compatible with Google Assistant soon. It’s a great speaker for the price, and it’s a must-have component for music lovers living in modern smart homes.
