AMAZON'S BEST BLACK FRIDAY DEALS

by Bryant Chan Julie Clopper / Shutterstock.com

Amazon released its planned Black Friday deals, and the folks at SpecOut, compiled some of the highlights. The sales on hundreds of items start as soon as Nov. 20, so you might be able to avoid the crowds this year and find the perfect gift from the comfort of your own home.

Pro tip: If you're an Amazon Prime member, you'll get access to some deals 30 minutes before they're available to the public.

If you're looking for something more kid-friendly, the Amazon Fire Kids Edition is a great way to distract the little ones on long road trips without spending considerably more for an iPad.

The e-reader to end all e-readers, the Amazon Kindle Paperwhite has a crisp display, stores over 1,000 books and allows you to look up word definitions without leaving your page. This is a great deal and gift for the people on your holiday list who still don't have an e-reader.

Up to 45% Off Select LG TVs

High-end LG TVs receive some of the best ratings for televisions on SpecOut, but often times their price can be prohibitive. With these major price cuts, it might be time to upgrade.

Building out an entertainment system in your home is a daunting task, but this deal is a great place to start. Sonos is a leader in the multi-room speaker scene with all of its products receiving ratings over 95/100 points on SpecOut. The 2 Room Starter set comes with two Sonos Play 1s that can be controlled via smartphone, tablet or computer.

This isn't a top-of-the-line TV, but it's a quality product with great user reviews (4.5 out of 5 across over 100 reviews), at a low price.

This 32" option is ideal for a small bed room, or a college dorm room.

The Sennheiser brand claims the top-rated spots for headphones on SpecOut. With positive reviews from both experts and users (4.5 from PC Mag and 4.4 from Head-Fi), it's hard to pass up high-quality sound at this deal's cost. This is the must-buy for music lovers in the market for new headphones.

 

We like this deal because it's made for the price-conscience consumer (ie., not just a marked-down luxury item). 

Acer Chromebooks are already cost-effective and highly rated, making this deal an ideal bang-for-buck winner. Additionally, it might be a good time to get a second monitor for your desktop or an external monitor for your laptop.

 

If you're not ready to take the multi-speaker plunge, the Polk Audio is a good solo-speaker deal. This gift is nicely discounted from $180, so consider giving it to a friend who loves movies or gaming, or treating yourself.
