It’s not every day that you get big discounts on products that just came out, but today is an exception. The new Eero Pro 6E mesh Wi-Fi router, which Jennifer Pattison Tuohy of Custom Hour just reviewed, is already on sale at Amazon with a 15 percent discount. It’s Eero’s new flagship model, with a 6GHz band that outperforms gigabit speeds over Wi-Fi — at least on devices that support it. It also has Thread support for easier smart home integration with compatible products, and the single-unit signal can cover up to 2,000 square feet. These mesh routers also come in a two-pack for 4,000 square feet or a three-pack for large, multi-story homes.
that lonely one Eero Pro 6E router normally costs $299, but Amazon has discounted it to $254† The next step up, a two-pack, dropped to $424 from the usual $499and the three-pack is $594 instead of $699† These prices may not be cheap (seldom are at the cutting edge of technology), but Eero’s last-gen models from 2020 are still available with a 30 percent discount at Amazon. /strong>†
A four-pack of Apple AirTags are currently on sale for their lowest price of $84.55 as part of Best Buy’s deal of the day† These little devices help track your personal belongings like keys or a wallet in the iPhone’s Find My app, and today’s discount is a savings of $14.45, costing each AirTag about $21. (They are normally $29 each when purchased separately.)
Despite their simple use, AirTags have been controversial since their launch because stalkers use them to track the location of unsuspecting people. Apple has made an effort to address this type of harassment, including an update to make your iPhone alert faster when an AirTag is nearby (and unknown), but we hope Apple makes a lot of progress in this area.
In the meantime, for those of us who tend to lose our keys or want to keep an eye on luggage or a camera bag, today’s sale on AirTags is the most affordable way to stock up. /strong>†
Do you hate pouring a hot cup of coffee or tea only to wrap yourself in something that keeps you from taking even one sip before it gets cold? That’s a rhetorical question, even though a sick person like me might just slurp it when it’s cold. For everyone else, the technology exists to avoid this conundrum completely. The Ember Mug is a smart mug that will keep your drink warm as long as it’s on the included charging coaster or up to 80 minutes on battery power. (Yes, this mug has a built-in battery.) You can even set the exact temperature in the companion app.
Several Verge writers and editors are coffee fans (of both the craft and the buttons), and a handful of them swear by the convenience of these mugs. If you want to join the club, Best Buy has the 14-ounce blue Ember Mug for $129.95 as opposed to the usual $149.95. This is the larger version of Ember’s coffee mug line, and the discount drops it down to the same price as the 10-ounce cup. If you don’t need that much volume, the 10-ounce Ember comes with a $15 . Target gift card when you buy it there for the regular price of $129.95.
OLED panels are all the rage whether we’re talking TVs or gaming monitors. While these panels usually have quite high asking prices for the excellent color contrast and deep blacks they deliver, you can now get a Vizio 55-inch OLED 4K TV with Dolby Vision and HDMI 2.1 (model OLED55-H1) for $806.54 at Amazon. This set usually costs $1,199.99, but has just hit this new low price.
Now sacrifices are expected when opting for a more value-oriented TV, and this Vizio is no exception. It may not go well with a comparable LG or Sony OLED – and Vizio has had some issues with its first crack on an OLED TV, such as mediocre variable refresh rate (VRR) performance and mediocre software – but the picture quality is still great. It has HDMI 2.1 ports and a refresh rate of 120 Hz for better gaming performance with the latest consoles. And with AirPlay 2 and Chromecast built-in, life just got a little easier when it comes to streaming. A bulky OLED for just north of $800? It’s hard to deny the value, warts and all.
