Samsung’s new art-inspired The Frame TV is cheaper than ever

It’s too hot to go outside (at least here in California), so if – like me – you’re spending a lot of quality time with the TV while feeling guilty about the lack of culture in your life, you might appreciate The Today Show. Samsung’s latest The Frame TV is a one-of-a-kind 4K TV that, in a way, brings home a bit of a museum experience that you can enjoy in between immersion in your favorite shows. That’s because – when you’re not using it – the gorgeous display displays a work of art that, thanks to a new anti-glare and low-reflection matte coating, looks remarkably similar to an actual canvas you see hanging in museums. However, when turned on, it switches to a QLED TV with a fast refresh rate of 120Hz and support for many streaming applications.

Just note that unlike most other TVs in this price range, the latest Frame version doesn’t offer Dolby Vision support and lacks a full local dimming system. If that doesn’t bother you, Woot is selling the TV today in various configurations for an all-new low. Right now, you can buy the 43-inch model at Woot for $739.99 instead of $997.99 at Woot, or the 55-inch model for $1144.99 instead of $1499.99.

The latest model of Samsung’s aesthetically pleasing TV retains the same vibrant QLED display as its predecessor but uses a new anti-glare, low-reflection coating called Matte Display, which delivers actual canvas-like quality images.

If you’re planning to travel during your summer vacation, you’ll likely find yourself in a crowded airport and plane, which is why it might be a good idea to pick up a pair of noise-canceling headphones ahead of time. Fortunately, Anker’s Best Buy Soundcore Liberty Air 2 Pro in blue sells for just $49.99 ($80 off) on its website, as well as through its eBay storefront. Amazon also sells the earbuds in other colors for about $79 if you’re not a fan of blue.

Best Buy’s current deal is a new record low on budget-friendly buds, which offer good value for their price. Not only does it provide strong voice quality and voice calls, but you can also adjust the noise canceling balance and EQ settings. Plus, it comes with a variety of ear tips for a more comfortable fit, a wireless charging case, and an IPX4 rating for water and sweat resistance. Read our review.

The Anker Soundcore Liberty Air 2 Pro earbuds offer decent active noise cancellation at a competitive price, with app features that let you customize your ANC and ensure you have the perfect fit in your ears.

If you missed out on the great indoor security camera deals we saw during Amazon Prime Day, you have a second chance to grab a huge discount on the budget Blink Mini. Right now, you can buy a pair of wired Blink Minis on Amazon at Best Buy for just $29.99 ($35 off), which matches the best price we’ve seen on the pair.

Blink Indoor Minis don’t feature a lot of bells and whistles, but the security cameras still allow for two-way audio and 1080p recording. It also supports night vision, provides good video and audio quality, and is easy to mount on the wall. However, as mentioned in our review, you’ll have to pay extra for things like cloud storage if you’re a new Blink customer, so just be sure to include that in the total cost.

If you want noise-canceling headphones instead of a pair of earbuds and don’t mind spending a little cash, you can buy Bose’s QuietComfort 45 now for $279 instead of $329 from Amazon and Walmart. That wasn’t the $229 price we saw during Prime Day, but it’s still the second best price we’ve seen on an excellent pair of lightweight headphones, which are still some of the most comfortable we’ve ever tested. While they can’t be used while charging and don’t offer the same bassy response as our top pick for the best noise-cancelling headphones – Sony’s new 1000XM5s – they’re still some of the best on the market and feature many other subtle details, including EQ customization.
