'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.

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.

Update, Dec. 2: Black Friday and Cyber Monday 2020 are now done and dusted. But if you would still like to find business tech deals or the best products to buy, check out our ZDNet Recommends directory.

Cyber Monday is here, and we have rounded up the best deals on Amazon devices.

Amazon has an ever-expanding list of devices. With tablets, smart speakers, streaming devices, and much more, it's bound to have something for everyone on your shopping list. As usual, most of the best prices on Amazon's devices can be found on Amazon's website. 

It has already announced great discounts that started going live from Nov. 20. We've highlighted those below. You can expect some more rollbacks to be unveiled throughout Cyber Monday Week, too. 

The latest version of Amazon's smallest smart speaker is the fourth-generation Echo Dot. This is the first time that the 2020 version of the Dot -- with its new circular-shaped body -- has been on sale. 

This Ring Video Doorbell and Echo Show 5 bundle usually cost $290, so you're saving quite a bit here. It includes Amazon's 5-inch smart display, which, of course, works with the Ring Doorbell to show you who's at your door. 

Amazon's top tablet option is the Fire HD 10. It features a 10.1-inch 1080p full HD display and has 32GB of storage. If you're looking for an inexpensive productivity and entertainment device, look no further. It even has Alexa.

Amazon's Kindle e-reader is 33% off for Black Friday. It has a 6-inch 167PPI screen and 8GB of storage, which allows it to hold and serve up thousands of books for you to read -- whether for pleasure or for work.

Save $20 on the 4K version of Amazon's streaming stick. In addition to the ultra high-def streaming quality, it adds voice controls to your TV, thanks to the included Alexa-enabled remote. Honestly, both make a great addition to any home office setup.

If you don't have a 4K TV, you can skip the 4K version of Amazon's streaming stick and save yourself a few extra bucks by getting the Fire TV Stick Lite, which is also on sale this Black Friday. It comes with the Alexa Voice Remote, too.

Here's another great bundle of Amazon devices. It includes the Echo Show 5 smart display and the Blink Mini indoor security camera. These two usually cost $125, so you're saving $75 and you can use them together to secure your home or office. 

Amazon's Ring Video Doorbell Pro is the top-of-the-line model. It lets you chat with whoever is at your door in 1080p HD video. If you don't need one, it'd make a great gift for a co-worker, friend, family member, or anyone special in your life really.

Like the regular Echo Dot, the latest version of the Echo Dot with Clock is also on sale for Black Friday 2020. It makes the perfect smart alarm clock for getting up on time before work -- as it has the time displayed across the smart speaker in LED lights. 

The latest edition of the Amazon Echo smart speaker features a redesigned circular shaped body and a host of improvements under the hood for better sound and voice detection. If you're embedded in the Alexa ecosystem, it's truly worth the upgrade.

This bundle will let you take the first steps in setting up your very own smart home or office -- or if you just want to add Alexa to another room. The Sengled Smart Bulb that's included can be controlled with the Alexa app on your device.

Amazon's Eero brand is fast becoming the obvious choice for when you're looking to expand your Wi-Fi system in your home or business. This three-piece system will provide 500Mbps speeds over 5,000 square feet.
