There are some excellent technology deals this week, especially at Best Buy. Here are some of them:
Samsung 8.1 Channel Curved Soundbar with Subwoofer
There is a reason why this soundbar from Samsung has received a rating of 4.5 stars out of 5 from 371 reviewers at Best Buy -- the sound it produces is very "Bose" like. There is a lot of low-level bass, but the high and middle levels of the sound range are great as well. As a matter of fact, if you took the Samsung logo off and replaced it with Bose, nobody would blink twice. Best of all, it's only $439 -- that's $360 off the regular price. You can really make your movies and television shows come to life with this soundbar. It can also be used with a Bluetooth headset when you really want sound privacy.
Antec Pulse Bluetooth Headphones
The Antec Pulse Bluetooth Headphones may not have the sound quality of a high-end pair like the Bowers & Wilkins P5 wireless -- but for $34.99 (at Fry's Electronics), you are getting an incredible deal. The regular price on these headphones are $69.99. The sound on these is somewhat tinny, but you can still feel the bass a little bit. The entry-level music listener really won't complain. In other words, they probably aren't good for music listening, but are fantastic for taking calls or watching movies.
HP Envy 2-in-1 15.6-inch Touchscreen Laptop (Intel Core i5, 8GB RAM, 1TB Hard Drive)
HP doesn't have as good of a reputation for laptops as they used to -- this is largely undeserved. Over the past two years, HP has really upped their PC production. This Envy, which you can only purchase at Best Buy, is only $679 -- that's $100 off the regular price. Best of all, it actually has a 1TB hard drive, which most laptops are getting rid of in favor of smaller solid state drives. HP put a 15-inch 1080p screen on the device, which is okay but a little bit behind the times. Those of you looking for a powerful laptop without your wallet having to suffer severely may want to check this out.
