TVs

This TV, in a series that’s a step up from Samsung’s entry-level QLED sets for 2021, delivers great overall picture quality but limited HDR performance. It’s a good deal because the entry-level Q60 model, which lacks some features found on this set, is selling for the same price.

Laptops and Tablets

If you simply want to watch Netflix and read e-books, this high-powered tablet might be overkill, but it’s a good choice if you enjoy playing demanding games and editing video. The display is big and bright, and the color is accurate. The device weighs 1 pound on the dot. The battery lasted just 7.7 hours in our web-browsing test, though. That’s not impressive for a tablet, but it’s just about the only knock here.

Headphones

Unlike the AirPods Pro, these second-generation AirPods don’t get high marks for sound in Consumer Reports’ testing. But there’s no denying the appeal of true wireless earphones for many Apple fans. If you buy the earbuds with the standard charging case directly from Apple, you’ll pay $160, but a number of retailers are selling them for much less.

The Apple AirPods Max usually sell with a sticker price north of $500. Are they worth that money? Probably not. These headphones do great in our ratings, but you can spend hundreds less on several models that get better scores, including the Sennheiser PXC 550-II and Bose QuietComfort 35 Series II.

Still, they deliver high-quality sound, their noise cancellation is as good as it gets, and they come with a variety of appealing features. They’re available at a discount in certain colors during Cyber Monday sales, but they’re still far more expensive than their competitors. If you’re dying to show off Apple’s latest tech, though, this is a great time to snag a pair.

CR’s test results: Apple AirPods Max over-ear headphones

You could spend top dollar on the latest noise-canceling headphones from Bose or you could pick up an older model that gets the exact same score in our ratings. The Bose QuietComfort 35 Series II are still one of the top picks in our noise-canceling headphone ratings, with outstanding scores in our tests. They have a long battery life and other sophisticated features, such as adjustable levels of sound blocking and an ambient sound mode that lets outside noise in when you want to hear it.

CR’s test results: Bose QuietComfort 35 Series II over-ear headphones

These true wireless noise-canceling headphones from Bose excel in our audio-quality and sound-blocking tests. Their "hybrid" eartips seal the ear without sticking too far in, which is a design that some people find more comfortable than conventional earphones. You get advanced features such as adjustable noise-cancellation, and a 6-hour battery life bolstered by a charging case that will power the headphones two extra times.

CR’s Test Results: Bose QuietComfort Earbuds

Even at full price, these earphones deliver great value. They have impressive sound quality, beating competitors that cost more than three times as much and earning a spot in CR’s picks for the best true wireless headphones of 2021. When you find them on sale at more than 20 percent off, they’re even more compelling.

The JBuds Air have an advertised 3.5-hour battery life and come with a carrying case that will recharge the earphones for an additional two cycles. Other features include support for various digital assistants, three switchable EQ modes to change the tonal balance of the sound, and according to JLab, water resistance. (We don’t test that feature or battery life.)

Sony makes some of the best true wireless noise-canceling earbuds on the market, and the WF-1000XM4 is the company’s best model yet. You can expect exceptional audio quality and sound-blocking performance, our testing shows, as well as advanced features such as variable noise cancellation, which you can adjust to let in more or less sound, a monitor mode to actively pipe in audio from your surroundings, and the Speak-to-Chat function, which can automatically pause the music when you start talking.

According to Sony, the XM4 has a 5.5-hour battery life and comes with a portable charging case that holds 16 hours’ worth of power before it needs to be plugged in again. We’re not seeing jaw-dropping bargains on this model so far, but we have spotted a couple of worthwhile discounts.

Cookware and Small Appliances

The Dreo Air Fryer earns high scores in CR’s tests for the ease and legibility of its controls, ease of cleaning, and relatively quiet operating noise. The basket’s claimed capacity is 4 quarts, but CR’s test engineers measured it at 2.5 quarts. The one-year warranty is on a par with most of the models we test. You’ll need to click the on-page coupon before adding it to your cart to get the savings.

Overall, this Black+Decker does a good job at the basics: baking, reheating, and toasting. But it also comes with a few additional functions, including convection bake and broil, as well as settings for cookies, pizza, frozen snacks, potatoes, and bagels. If you’re looking for a countertop oven, here’s an opportunity to get one for about 20 percent off.

This programmable drip coffee maker, a great value, gets top marks in CR’s test for convenience and earns a solid score for brew performance. It also features brew-strength controls, allowing you to adjust for different tastes. One minor downside: The reservoir markings are a bit difficult to see, a potential problem if you tend to brew your first pot when you’re only half-awake.

CR’s test results: Black+Decker CM4000S coffee maker

This nicely priced 10-piece set should satisfy most of your cooking needs. The lids are glass, so you can watch what you’re cooking without letting any heat escape. Cooking evenness is top-notch, and this set earns high ratings for both speed of heating and gently releasing eggs from the pan. The handles stay cool to the touch but could be sturdier.

SodaStream Fizzi Soda Maker

The best budget soda maker in our ratings, the SodaStream Fizzi soda maker is also among the easiest to use. Simply insert your bottle top in a clamp, push the clamp into place, and press start. The Fizzi creates a consistent level of fizz when you press for the same amount of time. You can vary the carbonation by pressing for longer or shorter times. A plus: It doesn’t have to be plugged in, so it’s highly portable.

Mattresses

Casper’s flagship The Casper foam mattress is a great option for back sleepers. It earns high scores in our back sleeper support tests for every body size. For side sleepers, this mattress is still a solid choice, with nearly as high scores for each body size. The Casper is slightly firmer than average, earning a 6 on our firmness scale. Casper foam mattresses also get top marks for comfort and owner satisfaction, according to data from our member survey.

CR’s test results: Casper Original (2020)

The Casper Hybrid innerspring mattress earns top marks in all of our side sleeper support tests, making it a better choice for side sleepers than the Original listed above. Large/tall back sleeper support earns scores nearly as high, while petite and average back sleeper support ratings are middle-of-the-road. Overall, CR members thought their Casper innersprings were a nice choice for comfort and owner satisfaction in our member survey.

Streaming Devices

This updated version of Google’s disc-shaped Chromecast, an HD (1080p) model, no longer comes in a choice of colors; you’re now limited to black or white. And unlike the new 4K Chromecast With Google TV, there’s no remote. Instead, you use your smartphone or tablet to select the programs you want to watch, and then send—or “cast” in Google’s parlance—content to the TV.

CR’s test results: Google Chromecast (third-generation)

Roku LE

The Roku LE streaming player, a Walmart exclusive, will be available at this price online at Walmart.com on Nov. 24 and in-store on Nov. 26, as long as supplies last. (Walmart+ members can get the deal starting Nov 22.) It’s a small, basic set-top box that offers access to all of Roku’s streaming services, but not more advanced features such as a voice remote. It does come with an HDMI cable, though.

This three-unit mesh router system performed well in our tests but doesn’t rate quite as high for speed at midrange and far distances. It’s also not compatible with the latest WiFi 6 standard, which might not be ideal for early adopters who routinely buy the latest smartphone and gadgets, because those are increasingly designed to reap the benefits of WiFi 6.

Given the relatively low price, however, there’s a lot to like here, including an easy app-based setup, a built-in Ethernet port, and automatic firmware updates, which protect you from hackers, malware, and other security vulnerabilities.

Vankyo Leisure 430 Portable Projector

This mini projector strikes a nice balance between price and performance, especially when it’s on sale. It ranks a bit lower than other models CR has tested because it doesn’t have the best picture quality, but it can produce a fairly large image with decent brightness. You need to keep it about 4 feet from the surface you’re projecting onto (other models can sit up to 12 feet back), and there’s no volume control. But for this price, it’s a great option for a backyard movie night or kids’ sleepover.

Think of the Charge 4 as the smaller sibling of JBL’s Xtreme 2; its light weight and more modest dimensions make it a great choice if you’re looking for a speaker that travels with you. It’s easy to use, has admirable sound quality, and delivers enough volume for a medium-sized room. It also features an internal power bank to charge other devices, and JBL says it’s water-resistant to 1 meter, a claim that CR didn’t test. Note that the deal price varies by color.

Onn 32-Inch Basic Sound Bar

We don’t know very much about this smaller sound bar from Onn, Walmart’s house brand, but can’t imagine a sound bar at a lower price. We haven’t tested this model, so we can’t say it offers any improvement over a TV’s built-in sound, but hey, it costs less than most replacement remote controls.

Fitness Trackers and Smartwatches

Yes, the Apple Watch Series 6 has been replaced by the newer Series 7, but it’s still a great option, especially at a nice price. With the Series 6, you get most of the Series 7’s top features, including a blood oxygen sensor that lets you see how effectively your body circulates oxygen during workouts and slumber, and an EKG function designed to detect unusual heart rhythms. The Series 6’s display is smaller, however.

CR’s test results: Apple Watch Series 6

If you want to brag to friends that you got a deal on the latest Apple Watch, Amazon, Sam’s Club, and Walmart are offering token discounts of $15 to $20 on the Series 7. The model has a slightly larger display and faster battery charging than its predecessor, but there’s no big reason to upgrade beyond that

CR’s test results: Apple Watch Series 7

Sleeker than its predecessor, the inexpensive Versa 2 smartwatch features a bright AMOLED display and a microphone that lets you use voice commands to access the built-in Amazon Alexa digital assistant. The model receives praise from our testers for being easy to use and read in both bright and low light. It’s also great at tracking steps and heart rate.

CR’s test results: Fitbit Versa 2

Loaded with features and style, the Luxe is a fitness tracker that drifts into smartwatch territory. In addition to Fitbit’s robust array of fitness functions, the model adds an EKG function usually found on smartwatches and some stress-monitoring features. The slim, sleek, and shiny case works as well in the office as the gym.

CR’s test results: Fitbit Luxe

Before the Charge 5 was released, the Charge 4 was Fitbit’s top-of-the line fitness tracker, and it still delivers on the manufacturer’s core fitness tracking functions. It doesn’t have a color display or functions for EKG and stress monitoring, but it’s quite easy to use and provides reasonably accurate heart rate and step counts, as well as a battery that can last as long as a week.

CR’s test results: Fitbit Charge 4

Fitbit’s top-of-the-line tracker adds smartwatch-like functions for stress management and EKG monitoring to the manufacturer’s usual array of fitness features. The model has a color display and a stainless steel case, both upgrades from the Charge 4. The Charge 5 is very easy to use, solid at counting steps, and okay at heart rate accuracy. The $180 price is just a bit steep, and this $50 discount helps with that.
