Router on a colorful background.

Now that social distancing has become the new normal, we're spending far more time at home working beside children and spouses, which definitely presents challenges. If you're looking for a pair of noise-canceling headphones, fresh entertainment options, or helpful home office upgrades, you're in luck.

With Memorial Day coming up, we're seeing worthwhile discounts on a variety of tech devices, including laptops, TVs, cameras, and routers. Below, we've identified the week's best electronics deals on products tested by CR's experts.

Keep in mind that many online retailers are experiencing higher than usual demand, so shipping may take longer than expected.

For more info on all sorts of electronics products, check out the ratings for the items we test at Consumer Reports.


Apple AirPods Pro Earphones

    The AirPods Pro are $15 off at various retailers, but AT&T is now selling them for $25 off. And yes, you can buy them as a guest if you don't have an account with the carrier. The model muffles unwanted distractions with active noise-cancellation and provides interchangeable ear insert tips, abandoning the one-size-fits-all earbud design of its predecessors. The sound quality is more than sufficient for critical listeners of music and movie soundtracks.

    Jabra Elite 65t true wireless headphones

      Like the AirPods above, this sports-oriented model has a "true wireless" design, which means the earpieces are totally untethered. The headphones deliver high-quality audio and come with a few convenient features, such as the ability to use the earphones with just the right-hand earpiece, and a quick-charge function that will boost your battery for an extra 1.5 hours after only 15 minutes, according to Jabra. The advertised battery life of up to 5 hours falls in the midrange for true wireless models.

      Lenovo Thinkpad X1 Yoga

        Lenovo recently put a swath of ThinkPad laptops on sale, including this X1 Yoga model, a 2-in-1 convertible that's available at more than $500 off the usual price (typically it's available starting around $1,500). It's largely similar to another Yoga in our ratings, which means you can look forward to solid performance. There's an Intel Core i5 processor, 8GB of memory, and 512GB of solid-state storage, all in a portable package. Lenovo's keyboards are highly regarded, too, which reduces the need to buy a separate keyboard for your work-from-home setup.

        Fitness Trackers

        Garmin Forerunner 35 Fitness Tracker

          While technically a fitness tracker, this model offers more of a watch-like feel—and it just dipped below $100 for the first time in months. It has a 1.3-inch monochrome display that shows you your step count and real-time heart rate, a built-in GPS, and a claimed battery life of nine days. Bonus tip: If you're interested in the white band, shop Best Buy, as Amazon did not discount that color.

          Home Theater

          Polk Sound Bar

            A sound bar is a quick-and-easy way to enhance your TV-watching experience and this model is good for both music and movie soundtrack playback. It has built-in Bluetooth, supports Amazon's Alexa, and is now available at $100 off its original price.

            TCL 65-Inch 4K Smart TV

              This massive TV—the TCL 65Q825—performed well in our labs. It supports voice commands for Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant. And, thanks to the built-in Roku streaming platform, it grants you easy access to your favorite shows without installing a streaming media device

              Linksys Mesh Wireless Router

                Ideal for large houses, Linksys' Velop AC6600 three-unit mesh router system is selling for $40 less than usual at these two retailers. It offers automatic firmware updates (good for digital security) and easy setup via smartphone app, plus admirable WiFi signal relay at a full range of distances, according to our testers.

                Netgear Nighthawk Wireless Router

                  This a nice price for a router well suited to midsized homes. In addition to solid performance, the Nighthawk delivers the protection of automatic firmware updates and easy setup via smartphone app.

                  GoPro Hero7 Action Camera

                    The price on this rugged GoPro action cam has now dipped by as much as $100. The device boasts a great image stabilizer, a 2-inch touch-screen display, and a design sturdy enough to survive our rigorous drop tests.

                    Sony Alpha a6500 Camera Bundle

                      The body of the Alpha a6500 alone typically sells for $1,000 to $1,500. We tested this 24MP camera with a fixed 50mm lens, but the 16–50mm lens that comes bundled with the body in this deal offers a bit more versatility, including the ability to capture wide-angle and portrait shots. And if you hate waiting to recharge, you'll love the longer-than-average battery life.
