'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.

Best Walmart Green Monday deals: $400 off TCL Class 5 TV, $260 off Lenovo Ideapad 3i

Apparently, Cyber Monday doesn't end until Walmart says so. The retailer still has deals aplenty on our favorite TVs, speakers, gaming consoles, headphones, and more during Green Monday.
Written by June Wan, Tech Editor on

It was just weeks ago when we rushed to our online shopping carts to checkout all the discounted goodies of Black Friday and Cyber Monday. And after hitting the 'Confirm Order' button, it was only a matter of time before the tracking numbers popped into our inboxes to contain all the anticipation. However, it turns out that many retailers, including Walmart, are still posting out eye-opening deals on our favorite tech gadgets, laptops, TVs and appliances.

If you missed out on the first wave of Cyber Monday discounts, look no further than the list below. We've compiled the best of the best deals from Walmart that are still available today.


TCL makes some solid low-end TVs, many of which deliver crisp and vivid quality. If you couldn't manage to snag a 4K panel this Cyber Monday, this 50-inch 5-Series offering is worth a look. It's currently discounted to $499.99 ($400 off) and comes with all the accoutrements that you'll need for a pleasant movie-watching experience. TCL's models come with Roku baked in, so you'll have instant access to high-demand streaming services like Netflix, Disney+, and more. 


It's not the highest end model from Roku, but the LE streaming stick delivers the same smooth, high-definition streaming experience for just $15 ($20 off). Hook this media player to any TV via HDMI and you'll gain instant access to streaming service favorites, like Disney+, HBO Max, and Netflix.


Eyeing a laptop upgrade that won't break the bank? Check out this Lenovo Ideapad 3i deal which fields an Intel Core i5 processor, 8GB of RAM, 512GB SSD, and an aptly-sized 14-inch display. The Ideapad series is a go-to when it comes to reliable and stock Windows experience, perfect for students, business workers, or at-home users. It's currently discounted by $260, pricing it well below its competition.


Budget gamers with an eye for a big-screen laptop might want to jump on this Walmart deal before it's too late. The $210 off Lenovo Legion 5 sports an immersive 17.3-inch full HD 144Hz display and is powered by AMD's Ryzen 5 5600H processor, 8 gigs of RAM, 256GB solid-state drive and an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 graphics card. Again, you're getting all of that gaming goodness for just $699.


When it comes to premium over-the-ear style headphones, the Bose QuietComfort 45 is a solid alternative to the Sony WH-1000XM4. Toss in a $50 discount and the new $279 asking price is one that will surely entice audiophiles and non-audiophiles alike.


The Oculus Quest 2, or Meta Quest 2 sits at the top of our best VR and AR headsets list, and this Walmart deal on a refurbished, 64GB model is almost too good to be true. For just $200, you can pick up the console and dive into the world of virtual reality. The Quest 2 is compact, portable, easy to learn, and a ton of fun once you put the headset on.


A top deal that doesn't cost top dollar, Walmart has the Lenovo Smart Clock (2nd Gen) on sale for just $24.88 ($50 off). With it, the retailer is bundling in a Lenovo Smart Bulb, which plays in tandem with the clock. For less than $25, this makes for a modernized and helpful bedside assistant, and can even respond to your voice prompts.


Coming in a gorgeous 55'' 4K panel with all the OLED goodness, this LG model is currently discounted by $600. For the price, you get a vivid and color-accurate TV that supports Dolby Vision IQ and Dolby Atmos for a viewing experience that can only be described as sensory overload. The OLED make-up is perfect for movies, gaming, sports, and more.


If you didn't scoop up a robot vacuum deal last month, then this Shark EZ offering is the one to get today. It's currently discounted to $299 ($200 off) at Walmart and brings all the form and function of higher end vacuums. That includes mapping and controls via the iOS and Android companion apps, self-emptying functionality, and a vacuum that brings powerful suction.


You don't have to wait for new years to set your fitness goals. Start now, while workout equipment like the UREVO folding treadmill is on sale! During this holiday season, Walmart has the foldable working machine discounted to $299.99 ($100 off). What you get is a compact and portable treadmill that functions like those in industrial gyms. Burn those calories without burning a hole in your wallet.


The Nintendo Switch is nothing new. But, the console continues to make for a doorbuster deal every holiday season thanks to its limited supply and great value. For the sale price of $299.99, you're getting a 12-month membership of Nintendo Switch Online and a carrying case included with the Switch console. Everyone loves free stuff, right?


Looking to step up your gaming setup this holiday? Save up on time and money with this Razer Power Up Bundle V2 for just $79. For the price, you're getting a keyboard (Razer Cynosa Lite), headset (BlackShark V2 X), mouse pad (Gigantus V2 L), and a mouse (DeathAdder Essential). You'd be hard-pressed to find a better deal on gaming gear than this.

The newest generation of Apple AirPods launched only a month ago and if these crisp-sounding earbuds didn't get your attention then, this cyber deal from Walmart might. For a limited time, you can pick up a pair of the wireless earbuds for just $149.99 ($29 off). That includes the charging case and a high quality audio experience that only gets better if you own an iPhone.


Smart TV or not, the Google Chromecast (3rd Gen) makes for an awesome stocking stuffer that enables users to broadcast their favorite shows, movies, and YouTube videos. The 3rd generation Chromecast is one of the more refined models that Google has put out, thanks to its flexible cable (great when plugging into tight areas) and ability to stream from over 2,000 apps. It's also discounted by 50% right now at Walmart. Pick one up for yourself for just $20.
