This TV from Samsung (8/10, WIRED Recommends) is our favorite for bright rooms. It puts out an extraordinary amount of light, so it’s easy to see, even in rooms that are full of windows and lamps. Its QLED panel provides excellent contrast, and it supports up to 120 frames per second, making it a great pick for gamers.

OLED TVs have incredible contrast ratios since pixels only light up when they’re needed. That means black levels look really black. Trouble is, they’re pretty expensive. This set from Vizio (9/10, WIRED Recommends) is already one of the cheapest OLED TVs around, and this deal makes it even more affordable. The price fluctuates a lot, but it’s not uncommon to find it going for $1,000. This deal is also available at Best Buy.

TCL makes some of our favorite budget TVs, and over the years, the tech we love in the higher-end 5- and 6-Series has filtered down to the 4-Series. This model packs a 4K panel, with HDR support, and Roku software built in, all for a modest price.

Click the coupon button to see the full discount at checkout. This headset earned our extremely rare perfect score (10/10, WIRED Recommends) for somehow achieving 300 hours of battery life, whereas most headsets only promise up to 30. Not only that, it’s comfortable for long gaming sessions, is stylish, and has rich, vibrant sound.

For a beefier headset that’s still easy to charge, the Astro A50 is one of our top picks. It comes with a base station that automatically charges the headset when you set it down. The dock also serves as a MixAmp that lets you balance game audio and chat audio to get just the right mix.
