Prime Day 2022 may be done and dusted, but there are still plenty of deals worth checking out. For instance, Walmart has discounted the 55-inch configuration of the Hisense U6G ULED TV to $378, the lowest price we’ve seen for this model that usually costs $449.99. While it may lack the higher refresh rates found in pricier models, the low-cost U6G has a few impressive features, like Dolby Vision and HDR10 Plus, for a more cinematic, contrast-rich viewing experience. This model also has Google Assistant built in, allowing you to control playback with your voice instead of having to frantically search for the remote for the hundredth time.
The latest Hisense TVs deliver an overall great experience for the price. The 4K TVs reportedly boast excellent image quality and Google Play, giving you access to a wide selection of streaming apps. They also support Dolby Vision, HDR, and HDR10 Plus.
For something that won’t cost as much, the second-generation Lenovo Smart Clock is currently discounted to its lowest price ever for today only, courtesy of Best Buy. This smart display typically sells for $69.99 but is on sale for just $34.99. In addition to serving up the time, this Google Assistant-powered smart hub is similar in form and function to the Amazon Echo Show, allowing you to control devices around your home, set timers, tell you the weather, and offer reminders for tasks.
The second-generation Lenovo Smart Clock bears a striking resemblance to Amazon’s Echo Show and shares many of the same features, allowing you to control devices around your home using voice commands and access information via Google Assistant.
Best Buy has discounted the Lenovo Yoga Tab 13 to its lowest price ever. While it originally sold for 679.99, you can currently get this versatile Android tablet for just $379.99. This 13-inch tablet is equipped with a 2160 x 1350 resolution screen with Dolby Vision support. Uniquely, it has a built-in handle, from which you can hang it from a nearby surface or prop it up. The Yoga Tab 13 also includes a USB-C port for charging and a Micro HDMI port that allows it to serve as a secondary monitor in a pinch. This configuration has 8GB of RAM and 128GB of SSD storage and is powered by a Snapdragon 870 mobile CPU. That chipset is more than sufficient for most mobile apps, but it will likely come up short if you’re planning to use it as a laptop replacement.
It’s worth noting that while this device makes for a handy monitor or streaming device, it isn’t compatible with Android 12, and its storage can’t be expanded via microSD cards like some other Android tablets, so you’ll have to rely on external storage if you run out of space.
The Elgato Stream Deck Mk. 2 is normally available for $149.99 but is currently on sale at Amazon for $124.99, the lowest price ever for this helpful desk peripheral. The Mk. 2 Stream Deck shares much of the same functionality as its older counterpart giving you access to a suite of apps to control various programs on your desktop. Some other key differences include a detachable USB-C cable, a detachable 45-degree mount, and a swappable faceplate to apply different accents.
The Stream Deck is primarily targeted at streamers and content creators, as it provides them with programmable buttons to quickly execute a variety of tasks, like moderate their chat or adjust effects and backgrounds while broadcasting. However, the Stream Deck also offers plenty of functionality for those without a regular online presence, allowing you to control Spotify playback, mute yourself in a video call, or quickly rearrange windows on your desktop with the press of a button.

Normally available for $179.95, Woot has discounted the JBL Charge 5 to $124.95, the lowest price we’ve seen for this waterproof Bluetooth speaker. The Charge 5 can last for up to 20 hours on a single charge, and it can even top off other devices because its large battery can serve as a built-in power bank. It also features multipoint Bluetooth connectivity, in addition to syncing playback with other JBL speakers with its PartyBoost feature.
