'ZDNET Recommends': What exactly does it mean?

ZDNET's recommendations are based on many hours of testing, research, and comparison shopping.

ZDNET Editor in Chief Jason Hiner dubbed these the best AirPods overall for 2024, thanks to their crisp sound quality and upgraded USB-C charging connection. Hiner wrote the AirPods Pro 2 are the most easily recommendable of the four current models of AirPods. 

"That's because they fit almost every type of ear, they are very comfortable to wear, and they include all of the best and latest features that Apple has to offer in headphones. Plus, they get a bonus set of new features as part of the iOS 17 update, which won't come to any of the other AirPods." Plus, they're available for $60 off ahead of Amazon's spring sale, matching the prices we saw during the 2023 holiday season.

If you're someone who does a lot of work with your phone, having a battery pack that you can use both on the go and at your desk is incredibly important. When former ZDNET associate editor Christina Darby tested out this Anker 622 magnetic battery pack, it provided her and her iPhone-dependent workflow with everything she needed in a single package.

Review: This Anker MagSafe charger offers something Apple's doesn't

With a single magnetic click, this battery pack can be stored in your pocket, or propped up using its sturdy magnet to create a stand. Additionally, you don't have to worry about charging your phone and your battery pack separately, as you can charge both simultaneously when the pack is connected to a power source. Darby noted that the battery pack is lightweight, and well-priced compared to Apple's offerings.

Hailed as the best robot vacuum for pet hair by ZDNET's vacuum expert Beth Mauder, the Roomba s9+ picks up more than just everyday dirt and debirs. 

Mauder says this is Roomba's most powerful robot vacuum, expertly designed in a D-shape, allowing the robot to fit in the corners of your home. The s9+ offers top notch AI inside that can recognize shoes, socks, cords, and more. 

The s9+ comes with an auto-empty base that doubles as a charging station, so once the robot picks up all of your dirt and debris, it's sucked right into an enclosed bag so it stays trapped away. And because this is an iRobot device, the Roomba s9+ can pair with the Braava jet m6 robot mop to completely clean your floors. Right now you can save $400 on one of Roomba's top models.

This Blink Wired Floodlight is ZDNET's pick for the best floodlight and camera combo for a tight budget. If you're trying to set up a security light with in-depth surveillance in the form of a security camera, this combo is easily installed in a junction box.

Also: I love Blink's Outdoor 4 Floodlight camera and you can't beat this 40% off discount

The biggest benefit of this camera and floodlight combination is that you don't have to pay for an extra monthly subscription if you don't want you, as you can add a separate Blink Sync Module for local storage. When ZDNET's Maria Diaz tested the Blink floodlight cam in her own home, Diaz loved the easy functionality and installation.

"After using the Blink Outdoor 4 Floodlight Camera for about a week, I am glad to have found a reliable solution to the problem of the dark side of my yard," Diaz wrote in her review.

The Fire Max 11 is Amazon's newest and best tablet yet. It still runs Fire OS, which means you'll lose access to any of Google's apps and services. However, Amazon's own App Store has many of the same apps that regular Android devices have access to -- including Netflix, Facebook, and Spotify.

The Fire Max 11 brings an 11-inch display, 4GB of memory and 64GB of storage with support for 1TB of microSD card storage, and right now you can save $80 on the model. 

Review: Amazon Fire Max 11: Easily the best Fire tablet yet

ZDNET contributor, Jason Cipriani, went hands-on with the Amazon Fire Max 11 and said that it is "easily the best Fire Tablet Amazon has made yet." 

"The Fire Max 11 productivity bundle provides everything you need to get some work done on the small and affordable tablet, as long as your work can be done in Microsoft's suite of apps and services, or in sites that work properly with Amazon's Silk Browser," he wrote.

The Sony WH-1000XM4 is the predecessor to one of ZDNET's favorite headphones we've written at-length about, the WH-1000XM5. We've put the WH-1000XM5 at the top of so many best lists for its exceptional noise-canceling, all-day comfort, strong battery life, great microphones, and, because it's Sony, gorgeous sound. But the XM5 headphones are pricey, and the older XM4 pair offers similar features for less. Right now you can snag a pair for an extra $100 off, and score a top-notch pair of headphones for under $250.

"Sony has a winner here and has lived up to expectations," Matt Miller writes in his review of the Sony headphones. The Sony WH-1000XM4 headphones share similar features like comfort and sound, but offer a slightly different headphone design (the WH-100XM4 is more adjustable) and are much cheaper. So if you want to experience the amazing sounds of Sony but are trying to stretch your paycheck a little further, choose the WH-1000XM4 over the WH-1000XM5. The headphones offer 30 hours of battery life, a 40mm driver size, and Bluetooth 5.0.

How did we choose these deals?

ZDNET only writes about deals we want to buy -- devices and products we desire, need, or would recommend. Our experts looked for deals that were at least 20% off (or are hardly ever on sale), using established price comparison tools and trackers to determine whether the deal is actually on sale and how frequently it drops. 

We also looked over customer reviews to find out what matters to real people who already own and use the deals we're recommending. Our recommendations may also be based on our own testing -- in addition to extensive research and comparison shopping. The goal is to deliver the most accurate advice to help you shop smarter. 

When will these deals expire?

Deals are subject to sell-out or expire at any time, though ZDNET remains committed to finding, sharing, and updating the best product deals for you to score the best savings. Our team of experts regularly checks in on the deals we share to ensure they are still live and obtainable. We're sorry if you've missed out on a deal, but don't fret -- we're constantly finding new chances to save and sharing them with you at ZDNET.com

How long will Amazon's Big Spring Sale last?

Amazon is offering significant sales and discounts during their Big Spring Sale event, which runs from March 20-25, 2024, but we've already seen great savings surface, even ahead of the spring event. 

Is Amazon's Big Spring Sale over?

Yes, Amazon's Big Spring Sale officially ended on March 25. 

However, it isn't abnormal for the retail giant to leave some deals remaining after a sale expires, and that's the case following the Big Spring Sale, too. Right now you can still snag savings on lingering deals from top brands, but if you've really got your eye on something we recommended grabbing it soon -- there's no way to know what will stay on sale or if stock will remain. 

What types of deals can I find during the Amazon Big Spring sale?

Amazon said that customers in the US can find deals on seasonal essentials like:

  • Up to 50% off select beauty products
  • Up to 50% off select sports and outdoors equipment
  • Up to 40% off select home products
  • Up to 40% off select spring apparel
  • Up to 40% off select electronics

Do I have to be a Prime member to shop the Big Spring Sale?

No, you do not have to be a Prime member to shop this sale event. All customers can shop the Amazon Big Spring Sale, although Prime members will have special access to a select exclusive deals, which can be found at amazon.com/bigspringsale

If you're not a Prime member yet, you can join now ahead of the Big Spring Sale kickoff to start getting member benefits like free shipping, entertainment, exclusive savings, and more.
