Woot is offering a significant discount for the first time on Samsung’s new Galaxy Buds Pro wireless earbuds, which were released with the Galaxy S21 phone a few months ago. Originally it’s $200, $170, and you can choose from three colors: purple, silver, or black. Samsung makes a few sets of true wireless earbuds of similar shape, but this one offers the best sound quality the company has achieved.
A few other perks mentioned in Chris Welch’s review include a handy voice detection feature that automatically dims the music and lets you hear your own voice by switching from active noise canceling to standby when you start a conversation. It also has IPX7 protection against water and sweat (suitable for workouts) and an improved microphone for chat during calls.
If you’re looking for a mesh Wi-Fi system that works with a tri-band setup and a dedicated backhaul, check out this other deal on Woot to keep you working fast even with a lot of devices connected. It’s on Netgear’s latest 3-piece Orbi system. Originally it was $600, but now it’s $320. They don’t currently support Wi-Fi 6, which many devices can utilize, but it’s still fast enough and functional.
Each AC3000 device uses one 2.4GHz band and two 5GHz bands that support MU-MIMO to handle streaming to multiple devices simultaneously, so network congestion is not an issue. Unlike some competitors in this price range, each of the two satellites that come with the main Orbi router have two Ethernet ports in case you want to connect some technology directly around your home.
You can get a $20 gift card by purchasing the Nintendo Switch Lite console at several retail outlets. It’s priced at $200 and Nintendo barely offers any discount on the actual price of the hardware, so it’s a good deal as seen on the Switch console. You can keep your gift card for future use, or choose a microSD card at the time of purchase to increase your Switch Lite’s storage space for more games. However, Switch Lite cannot connect or dock to the TV. This feature only applies to larger and more expensive switches with detachable Joy-Con controllers.
