Ars Technica

Cyber Monday has arrived. To help you shop smarter this holiday season, the Dealmaster has sifted through hundreds of junky offers, researched countless products, and ignored the retailer hype to pick out the best Cyber Monday 2020 deals on gadgets, games, and tech gear we like.

As expected, many of Cyber Monday’s most notable deals are repeats of what we saw on Black Friday. But there are a few new discounts worth noting, and if you’ve still got holiday shopping to do, most of the deals in our hand-picked roundup below continue to bring excellent value.

We’ve given special shout-outs to a few of our favorite offers below, and we’ll be sure to update our list over the course of the day, adding new worthwhile discounts as we see them.

Top 10 deals of Cyber Monday 2020

Sony's WH-1000XM4 is one the best pairs of wireless headphones you can buy.

Sonos One SL for $129 at Sonos, Amazon, and Adorama (normally $179): Sonos has discounted a number of its devices for Cyber Monday, but one highlight is this $50 drop for the Sonos One SL. The home speaker offers the same excellent sound quality and easy-to-manage wireless streaming support of the normal Sonos One, but it saves a few bucks by ditching the built-in microphones for those who don’t need voice assistants like Amazon’s Alexa. Discounts on any Sonos speaker are rare, and this deal comes within $10 of the all-time low. If you’d prefer to buy a pair, Amazon has a bundle that includes a $10 store gift card.

Ghost of Tsushima (PS4) for $40 at Amazon, GameStop, and Best Buy (normally $60): There are tons of deals on quality video games this Cyber Monday, but one highlight is this $20 discount on the PlayStation exclusive Ghost of Tsushima. You can check out our review for a full picture, but in short, the open-world samurai drama is still one of our favorite games of 2020. This deal matches the best price we’ve seen.

Amazon Fire HD 8 (32GB, ads) for $55 at Amazon (normally $85): Amazon’s Fire HD 8 certainly isn’t as fast or well-made as an iPad, its display is less sharp, and like all Amazon tablets, it lacks native access to the Google Play Store. (Though there are workarounds for the latter.) Still, if you just want a competent tablet for simple Web browsing and e-book reading on the (very) cheap, it does everything well enough to be good value. This deal ties the lowest price we’ve seen. If you’d prefer a bigger display, the 10-inch Fire HD 10 is on sale for $80.

SanDisk microSDXC Card for Nintendo Switch (128GB) for $20 at Amazon and Best Buy (normally $27): A recommendation from our guide to the best Nintendo Switch accessories, this SanDisk microSD card is reliable and high-performing with any device that supports expandable microSD storage, not just the Switch. This deal marks another all-time low. Another microSD card we like, the Samsung EVO Select, is also on sale for $16; just note that it has slower write speeds.

Sony WH-1000XM4 for $278 at Amazon, B&H, and Adorama (normally $350): While its name doesn’t roll off the tongue, Sony’s WH-1000XM4 is a highly recommended pair of wireless noise-cancelling headphones. Aside from being comfortable to wear for hours at a time, the XM4 have a fun yet customizable sound, the ability to connect to multiple devices simultaneously, and active noise cancellation that ranks among the strongest on the market. This ongoing deal from Black Friday matches the largest price drop we’ve seen.

Logitech M720 Triathlon for $30 at Amazon (normally $40): The top budget option from our guide to the best wireless mice, the Logitech M720 Triathlon is a clear step down in build quality from our pricier picks, but it’s still comfortable for a variety of hand sizes and grip types. It’s easily usable across multiple devices, too, and it lasts for roughly two years off a single AA battery. While this isn’t the biggest discount we’ve seen, it’s a nice price drop all the same.

UE Wonderboom 2 for $50 at Amazon and Best Buy (normally $90): Here’s the joint-lowest price we’ve seen on the UE Wonderboom 2, a Bluetooth speaker we’ve recommended in the past. This is a highly portable device, so it doesn’t have the most dynamic audio profile, but for its size it still produces a clean and satisfying sound. We wish it charged over USB-C instead of microUSB, and its nine-hour battery life is just okay, but its diminutive frame, simple controls, built-in elastic loop, and IP67 waterproof rating make it convenient to play anywhere.

55-inch LG BX OLED TV (2020 model) for $1,197 at Amazon and B&H (normally $1,450): The entry-level model in the LG’s latest crop of OLED TVs, the BX can’t get quite as bright as more expensive models, so it’s best kept away from glare. That said, it’s still a sizable upgrade over most traditional LED LCD sets, with spectacular contrast, smooth motion, and wide viewing angles. If you’re willing to pay a bit more, the step-up LG CX is still a better TV on the whole, but if you’d prefer to pay as little as possible for a premium OLED set, this deal matches the lowest price we’ve tracked.

Microsoft Xbox Wireless Controller for Xbox Series X|S for $40 at Microsoft and Amazon (normally $60): While it’s still extremely difficult to buy a Xbox Series X|S, Microsoft has taken $20 off the controller that comes bundled with the new consoles. As we noted in our review, the new Xbox controller isn’t a huge shift from the old one—and it lacks the flair of Sony’s DualSense—but it is a better version of an already great pad, with a grippier texture on the back, an improved d-pad, and a slightly more comfortable shape. If you need a spare controller for your Xbox, PC, or Android phone, this is the first major discount we’ve seen. Just note that it still requires AA batteries by default.

Instant Pot Duo Evo Plus (8qt) for $90 at Amazon and Williams-Sonoma (normally $140): While we don’t review tons of kitchen gadgets here at Ars, we’re not ignorant to the Instant Pot craze. This particular multi-cooker is well-reviewed for offering a large LCD display, automatic sealing, a sous vide function, and nifty handles that make its inner pot easy to lift. This deal price is a new all-time low. The device itself is an eight-quart model, so it’s best for larger families and servings, but we have deals on smaller options below.
