If Santa didn't come to your house this year, we're bringing you a few post- Christmas content. Unlike the big dude that lives up north, The Verge Deals team works hard all year to make sure its best discounts are all front and center for you to see. We have wrangled a few that we think are worth looking into if you want to treat yourself.
The Nest Hub Max is on sale at Best Buy and Target. The Max doesn't offer the same sound as the Nest Audio, but it does have a great camera for video calls. It has a lot of smart home controls and personalized information based on who is looking at the screen.
The Mini Triangles Smarter Kit is currently discounted to $99.99 at Best Buy, and comes with everything you need to set up a small area of accent lighting. The bundle contains ten touch-activated pieces that can be programmed to display specific themes or mirror the colors on your computer monitor, allowing for a more realistic gaming experience. The modular light panels can be controlled with either the app or voice commands.
The Bose QuietComfort 45 headphones are on sale at discounted prices. Not quite their lowest price, but still worth a look if you are looking for a cheap pair of headphones. The Bose headphones are comfortable and provide excellent noise cancellation. The QuietComfort 45 headphones can't be used while charging or audio isn't supported over the internet, but the solid battery life should ensure that these are rare. We recommend you to read our review.
Bose's QuietComfort Earbuds II can be found at the same price at Amazon and Best Buy. The QuietComfort Earbuds have excellent noise cancellation and sound quality. We recommend you to read our review.
If you don't have enough space on your PC or PS5 you can get the 2 terabytes of the black SN850 at Best Buy. This is the cheapest price we have seen on this drive. This is a little pricey but condenses a lot of storage into a single drive, and it can be used with Sony's PS5.
If you want to use an M.2 slot instead of an older storage method, the SN850 is a good choice. It is possible to move files around quickly and games to load faster with the faster transfer speeds offered by SSDs.
At Best Buy, you can get discounts on the 1 terabytes model. If you're looking for a drive with a less expensive entry fee, the 2TB model is the best option.
Walmart is currently selling the black and white colors of the standard xbox wireless controller for $39. The layout of the controller for the Xbox is one of the best in the industry. In addition to the Microsoft console, the classic xbox wireless controller plays well with Windows PCs and mobile devices. Red, blue camo, and lime green are some of the more vivid colors.
