The Wirecutter's Best Deals: A Roomba, Studio Monitors And More


The Wirecutter

This post was created in partnership with The Wirecutter, a list of the best technology to buy. Read their continuously updated list of deals at TheWirecutter.com.

You may have already seen Engadget posting reviews from our friends at The Wirecutter. Now, from time to time, we'll also be publishing their recommended deals on some of their top picks. Read on, and strike while the iron is hot -- some of these sales could expire mighty soon.

VIZIO M43-C1 43-Inch 4K Ultra HD TV

Street Price: $600 MSRP: $600 Deal Price: $550 + $20 Prime discount

This is the first time we've seen this model go on sale, and if you have Amazon Prime you'll save an extra $20 at checkout. Even without the added discount, it's still a great deal. If you don't have Prime, but do have a membership with Costco, you can get the same price there.

The Vizio M43-C1 is our 4K pick in our guide on the best $500 TV. Chris Heinonen said, "We don't think 4K is worth the investment on a TV in this price range, but if you must have it, this set is the best choice."

Bose Soundtrue On-Ear Headphones Black

Street Price: $100 MSRP: $150 Deal Price: $80 with code EMCAWNV67

This is a great deal on an awesome pair of on-ear headphones from Bose. With promo code EMCAWNV67 this deal matches the price these fell to for Amazon Prime Day back in July. The deal is only available on the black model of the headphones.

The Bose SoundTrues are our pick for the best on-ear headphones at any price. Lauren Dragan writes, "The Bose SoundTrues are our top pick because they strike the perfect balance of being extremely comfortable, lightweight, and compact—plus they sound really good. This isn't something many other headphones could claim."

M-Audio Studiophile AV 40 Active Studio Monitor Speakers

Street Price: $125 MSRP: $200 Deal Price: $99

The best price we've seen on these was $80, but that was a brief B&H sale that expired a few hours after we posted it. This is the best regular non-lightning deal we've seen on these at Amazon in a couple of years.

These speakers are our pick for the best computer speakers. Brent Butterworth wrote, "In our tests, no other computer speaker came close to offering the combination of sound quality and value we found in the M-Audio Studiophile AV 40. With one possible exception, it equaled or bested the sound quality of any other speaker we tried. Yet at $119, it was one of the least expensive models."

iRobot Roomba 650 Cleaning Robot (Refurbished)

Street Price: $400 MSRP: $400 Deal Price: $280

If you don't have anything against refurbished products, this is a great opportunity to save $120 off the street price of this robot vacuum. Unlike most refurbs, this one comes with the same 1-year warranty that new models get. We've seen the 650 drop down to $320 new a few times, but $40 off of that for a unit with a full warranty is a good deal.

The iRobot Roomba 650 is our pick for the best robot vacuum. Liam McCabe said, "It gets floors cleaner more quietly than the competition, and it's generally more pleasant to live with. Also, its modular design makes maintenance and repairs easy."

Deals change all the time, and some of these may have expired. To see an updated list of current deals, please go to The Wirecutter.com.
