Cyber Monday is one of the best times of year to score killer tech gear for way less. Dare we say the deals are even better than they were on Black Friday?! The sales on TVs are particularly great — cue this 50-inch set for $300. But Julie Ramhold, consumer analyst with DealNews.com, says to move fast. “Stock sells out quickly on the best-priced sets, and there are always a few headline-making deals that get a ton of hype and sell out in minutes,” she says. “Zero in on the 4K TV you want, have some backups and get ready to shop..."

With new products hitting the market all the time, a lot of the older stock is just sitting around waiting to be snatched up.

You can also pick up a 2nd-gen pair of Sony headphones for over 50% off right now. These deals are for a limited time and in short supply, though — which means if you see something that appeals to you, act fast!
Top TV deals
Many of the best TV deals this year are coming from Amazon, especially on Fire TVs. You can expect savings of $200 or more on many devices, with larger, high-end sets like the Sony Bravia seeing discounts of over $500.
"Fantastic TV! Picture quality is just amazing. I didn’t know I needed the upgrade until I had this. I do agree with other reviewers that the sound is a bit lacking, I would definitely invest in a soundbar. Other than that, for the price, I would absolutely recommend," one reviewer said.

"I bought a 5" and an 8" when they were on sale. I love both of them, but the 8" is exceptionally great! I love everything it can do. Two of my favorite things is it links to my Ring doorbell so it will announce people at my door and automatically display them. I also love that when in idle mode it doubles as a photo display of my grandkids and vacation photos. I love the 8" so much that each of my grown kids are getting one for Xmas this year," one customer said.

Top Laptop deals
According to many analysts, this Black Friday is going to heavily favor laptops. We've already seen deals like $150 off a Chromebook, $300 off a gaming laptop, and $100 off an IdeaPad.
"I love this little laptop. It was inexpensive and does everything I need it to. I take it everywhere with me in my backpack and, to be honest, I throw my backpack everywhere. I don't have it in any kind of protection sleeve or anything, and it is a trouper. I imagine it won't be great for gaming and whatnot, but I use it for emails and spreadsheets and it gets the job done," one customer said.

Top headphone and earbud deals
There are loads of deals on earbuds and headphones right now, so make sure you know what you're looking for! “The most important thing is to know exactly what you want. What specs you want in a TV or laptop and which headphones you want,” says Kristin McGrath, shopping expert with RetailMeNot. Keep an eye out for clickable coupons at Amazon, too!
"I bought these to wear at work when I need to focus. I'm in a cube, and it's hard to concentrate when I can hear everything going on around me. When I turn the noise-cancelling feature on, I can't hear any of it, the difference is really amazing," one customer said. "The ambient sound setting is nice, too, if I want to be able to hear anyone but not have to take the headphones off."

Top gaming deals
Black Friday is always a great time for games, with discounts of up to 75% off popular titles like Guardians of the Galaxy, and even 50% off mainline Nintendo Switch games that rarely ever see sales.
One customer said, "This thing is great! I bought two of the 2TB version for PS5s, and it might've been the easiest install I've done of anything. No fuss installing, no fuss setting it up, it was basically plug-and-play. Haven't had any complaints from the PlayStation about it, either. Would definitely recommend."
"After playing on my Xbox Series S for a month now, I can say I am happy with this little beast console! This console can play new Xbox One and old Xbox 360 games if it's backwards compatible. The fast load times are amazing on current Xbox games and the increase frame rates are also very much welcomed," one customer said. "I downloaded a lot of past games just to try out how it stacks against my old Xbox One X — there just no comparison to how stable it is. Plus, most games are getting a X/S upgrade to take advantage of the new hardware."
"I absolutely love this bundle!! It gave me everything I needed to start out! Plus with the online package, I was able to download all the older Nintendo games and consoles!! I've been in bliss ever since!" said one happy shopper.
