'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.

The reMarkable 2 e-ink tablet is a truly remarkable steal at $50 off

Whether you're a student, in an office, or working from home, this $50 off deal is the best I've seen on this device.

reMarkable 2 tablet

I've been shouting from the rooftops since I picked up my own model of this great tablet last year: the reMarkable 2 e-ink digital tablet is hands-down the handiest digital tool in my toolbox. No matter if you're a student or back in the office, the digital e-ink writing tablet can store your notes on the go -- and for the first time since I've begun tracking it, it's discounted. You can score it for $547, saving you $50.

Besides my laptop, Logitech Mouse, and Google Pixel 6 Pro, my reMarkable 2 tablet is the only other tool I use daily. The digital pen (sold separately for $129) truly feels like I'm writing on paper, and I love that I can choose between different pen, marker, and pencil styles for when the occasion calls for it. 

The software for my digital notes offers complete customization, including a library of templates, the ability to copy and pull out several pages within a notebook. I can create folders for securing different subjects, too.

One of the greatest features is that when I need to sign a contract, I can upload it via the app, digitally sign it, and send it via email to either my contact or my personal email. On the rare occasion I forget to bring my tablet with me, I can go back into the app on my phone and check my notes. It's important to note that some of the features are blocked by the Connect subscription, but it's a very reasonable $3 per month.

If you choose to opt for this deal, I recommend adding one of the notebook covers to protect your case. After all, it's not waterproof, and the case will protect it from accidental coffee spills. It comes in a plethora of options, from a polymer weave to a leather cover.

At $50 off, the $547 price tag is the best I've seen for this truly "remarkable" tablet. You'll want to add it to your cart today, since I have no idea when this sale will end. Since it's a Black Friday deal, it should be around for a few days, but it's not worth risking $50 off.

In addition to this great Black Friday deal, ZDNET is bringing the best of Black Friday straight to you with our Black Friday collection. There, you can find the best deals on other tablets, but also other great tech items like smartphones, robot vacuums, and more. We'll also be running a live blog during the shopping weekend, bringing you the best deals in real time.
