The deals listed here are time sensitive and as such will fall back to their original prices soon. If there’s a product in here that tickles your fancy, you best act fast.
Here it goes!
NVIDIA Shield 4K Android TV, 16GB ($179.99, usually $199.99)
If you’re after an extremely capable Android TV powered set-top box that differs from all of the standard set-top boxes out there, then the NVIDIA Shield is probably something you should be looking at. This little machine serves up 3x the performance of the Apple TV and competing devices. Chromecast is built-in, and you get access to a wealth of entertainment from sources like Netflix, HBO, YouTube, Sling TV and many more. There’s 16GB of internal storage which can be extended to 128GB.
NVIDIA Shield also supports 4K video playback and ships with a game controller which can be used to play games downloaded from the Play Store or NVIDIA’s own game streaming service.
An additional 128GB of portable storage should be enough to cater to most needs, but this little card goes a few steps further. Not only is it massively reduced in price, offering an excellent bang for the buck, but it also offers up to 60MB/s data transfer speeds and the ability to store around 45,000 thousand photos on your mobile, tablet or camera. That should give even the most hardcore selfie taker an abundance of storage space for a lifetime.
RoverBeats F1 Bluetooth 4.0 Wireless Headphone ($23.99, usually $89.00)
When looking for a pair of bluetooth compatible headphones, it’s fairly easy to fall into the Beats by Dre trap. Not only are these little gadgets now owned by Apple and come with a fairly heavy price-tag attached, but do they really offer the premium performance that the price-tag suggests? These RoverBeats come with Bluetooth 4.0 embedded and offer enhanced noise reduction for a premium music and phone call experience, with the battery lasting up to 10 hours of continuous music playback.
Even at full price, it seems like a great deal, but with 73% knocked off the price, it seems like an absolute steal.
If the NVIDIA Shield is a little too rich for you, and brings with it a little too much functionality, then how about the more affordable Amazon Fire TV set-top box? This little black box now supports 4K Ultra HD streaming, and offers access to over 3,000 channels, games, and apps such as NBC News, ESPN, the Cartoon Network and Netflix. Fire TV owners can also interact with games like Minecraft, Pac-Man 256 and Lego Star Wars. It also comes with the the Fire TV Voice Remote which supports Alexa, letting you “check sports scores or the weather, play music, and more – instantly”.
The set-top box packs 2GB of RAM, a dedicated graphics engine, and 8GB of storage which can be expanded up to 128GB.
