'ZDNET Recommends': What exactly does it mean?

ZDNET's recommendations are based on many hours of testing, research, and comparison shopping. We gather data from the best available sources, including vendor and retailer listings as well as other relevant and independent reviews sites. And we pore over customer reviews to find out what matters to real people who already own and use the products and services we’re assessing.

When you click through from our site to a retailer and buy a product or service, we may earn affiliate commissions. This helps support our work, but does not affect what we cover or how, and it does not affect the price you pay. Neither ZDNET nor the author are compensated for these independent reviews. Indeed, we follow strict guidelines that ensure our editorial content is never influenced by advertisers.

ZDNET's editorial team writes on behalf of you, our reader. Our goal is to deliver the most accurate information and the most knowledgeable advice possible in order to help you make smarter buying decisions on tech gear and a wide array of products and services. Our editors thoroughly review and fact-check every article to ensure that our content meets the highest standards. If we have made an error or published misleading information, we will correct or clarify the article. If you see inaccuracies in our content, please report the mistake via this form.

Upgrading your work-from-home setup shouldn't cost you an arm and leg. If you're wanting to up your productivity, buying a portable monitor may do the trick. The Lepow 15.6-inch panel is currently discounted by 25%, pricing it at just $186.99. For the price, you get an external monitor that can link to your phone, laptop, or computer via USB Type-C or HDMI. That gives you two screens to work from -- or play from.

You can save big on a new 55'' Fire TV by Amazon. For a decent-sized 4K panel, you're paying just $379.99 ($140 off). What you get for the price includes 3 HDMI ports, built-in streaming services like Prime Video, Netflix, and Disney+, and other smart TV features.

Amazon is offering a wired version of the smart Ring doorbell together with an Echo Dot thrown in for $41.99 during Cyber Monday.

This Cyber Monday, Amazon is offering $21 off a Roku 4K streaming stick. This streaming device can be used to access content from subscription services including Sling, Hulu, Netflix, and Prime Video, and can be controlled via both a remote or voice activation.

Possibly the cheapest we'll be seeing the Apple AirPods Pro (after Black Friday), Amazon currently has the active noise-canceling earbuds going for just $179.99 ($70 off). These are arguably the best wireless earbuds you can buy, whether you're an audiophile or not. It's the earbud to buy for family, friends, coworkers, or yourself if you want excellent sound quality, a secure and comfortable fit, and all the Apple magic when paired to an iPhone.

Home Wi-Fi has become a crucial tool for work and study, but when a connection is being shared between different people and devices, bottlenecks can occur. To combat this, mesh Wi-Fi was introduced -- and one of these products, the Amazon eero 6, is currently on sale. Available for $209, the eero is a dual-band Wi-Fi 6 system able to cover up to 5,000 sq. ft and speeds of up to 900Mbps (wired) or 500Mbps (wireless).

Samsung just launched the Galaxy Buds 2, which bundle excellent sound quality with a lightweight and comfortable design. The wireless earbuds are currently on sale for $109.99 ($40 off) and come in a slew of pastel colors.

Amazon is offering discounts of up to 24% on a range of Netgear products. Items currently on sale include Mesh range extenders, cable modems, and the Orbi Mesh home Wi-Fi 6 system ($329, or 27% off).

Over at Amazon, you can pick up an MSI GS75 Stealth gaming laptop at a discount. This laptop comes with a 17.3-inch display, an Intel Core i7 processor, Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 graphics, 16GB RAM, and 512GB SSD storage.

While not the biggest discount in existence, the TP-Link Deco Mesh WiFi router is still worth considering if you need to purchase a new router or you have connectivity black spots in your home that need to be tackled. This router uses mesh technologies to boost coverage in areas of up to 3800 sq. ft.
