Our inaugural deals posted this week are full of amazing deals, many of which are currently matching their best prices to date. Both 65-inch and 77-inch models of LG’s C1 OLED are on sale at the lowest prices ever on Amazon, for example, with a 65-inch panel priced at $1,596.99 instead of $2499.99. Other discount sizes are also available, but you’ll want to turn your attention to the 65- or 77-inch models for the best value.
While we’ve never reviewed C1And Several employees own the 2021 model and they can’t seem to be silent about it – not only because it offers excellent visual fidelity but also because of its excellent player-focused list of features. In addition to 4K resolution and Dolby Vision support – which allows for incredible depth of color – the C1 has a “Game Optimizer” feature that lets you switch between Nvidia G-Sync and AMD FreeSync, a technology that delivers an ultra-smooth picture experience at a refresh rate of 120Hz. Pair that with the panel’s 1ms response time, and you’ve got one of the best gaming TVs available today.
The C1 also has a number of excellent quality of life features, including support for Google Assistant, Amazon Alexa Voice Assistant, HDMI 2.1, and Apple’s AirPlay 2. In total, the LG C1 features four HDMI ports, with one eARC port, three USB ports, and one audio-visual connection.
Right now, you can get a free Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 when you buy a 128GB Samsung S22 Ultra for $949.51 on Amazon. The Galaxy Watch 4 usually starts at $230, and the 128GB version of the S22 Ultra is usually $1199.99. The S22 has had some fairly big discounts since its debut, but the addition of the Galaxy Watch 4 makes this the best value we’ve seen on this phone so far.
The S22 Ultra is Samsung’s biggest phone since the Note (RIP) series. The phone’s massive 6.8-inch screen has a resolution of 1440 x 3088 and is powered by a fast Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor, which provides excellent response and performance. The wide screen also comes with Samsung’s S Pen, which is a stylus that easily docks inside the body of the phone, and an impressive camera array consisting of a standard 108MP shooter, a 10MP telephoto camera, and a 12MP ultra-wide camera. There is also a 40MP front camera for taking selfies.
The biggest gripe – aside from the dull night mode for selfies – is the battery, which struggled to last all day without having to discharge it. However, despite its flaws, we still consider the S22 Ultra an excellent phone and definitely worth a look when a free smartwatch is thrown into the mix.
Note that the Galaxy Watch 4 model shown here features a 44mm dial which is the Bluetooth-only configuration of this watch as opposed to the LTE-enabled version. Our consensus on this wearable was a bit mixed, due to its reliance on Samsung’s platform of apps, but it remains one of the best smartwatches available thanks to its fast performance and powerful health tracking capabilities.

The 256GB M1 MacBook Air configuration is currently on sale at Best Buy for just $899.99 ($100 off). This is one of the lowest prices we’ve seen for this $999.99 laptop since January, making it an ideal pick for anyone already thinking about the new school year. While there are certainly newer and more powerful Apple laptops out there, the current opponent makes the aging Air worth considering.
This 13-inch laptop has a 2560 x 1600 Retina display, and while it may lack a touchscreen, it still comes with Apple’s True Tone technology, which adjusts the screen’s color temperature based on your current lighting environment. In addition to the fast M1 CPU, which allows the Air to run Intel-based apps in addition to those native to macOS, the Air also includes 8GB of RAM and 256GB of SSD storage. The M1’s CPU helps extend the Air’s battery life as well, allowing it to run for up to 18 hours on a single charge.
The MacBook Air’s slim profile allows only a pair of USB-C ports, but both are Thunderbolt 4 compatible, allowing the laptop to pair with a dock for added connectivity. Sure, the 720p webcam leaves little to be desired, but other than that, the M1 MacBook Air remains a solid laptop, especially for college graduates. Read our review.
The Logitech MX Master 3 Wireless Mouse is usually on sale for $99.99 in either black or gray at Office Depot for $74.99, which is the lowest price we’ve seen for early-production peripherals. In addition to the typical button layout, the Master 3 has a pair of buttons under the thumb that can be used to navigate your browser history, a side scroll wheel, and a hidden hidden button in the thumb rest that can be assigned to any operation using Logitech software. The chassis has an ergonomic, ergonomic design and scroll wheel that is, frankly, worth the cost of entry alone. You can also toggle the wheel to move in steps or spin freely, allowing you to quickly scroll through large walls of text.
The sensor used in the Master 3 has a maximum 4K dpi, and while it won’t be anyone’s first choice for gaming, it still provides accurate tracking and allows the battery to extend for up to 70 days on a single charge. The mouse is also compatible with Windows or macOS and can pair with devices through either 2.4GHz wireless or Bluetooth. The only real drawback here is that the mouse is precisely designed for right-handed users (sorry, southern guns).
