MORIBA CUMMINGS: Hi, guys, and welcome to "In The Know Live, Gadgets." I am your host, Moriba. And today, we'll be taking a look at the six best Black Friday tech deals at Walmart and Best Buy.


So Black Friday is just a few days away, but these two retailers are kicking things off a bit early by giving shoppers a head start on shopping. It's the biggest deals of the year. So we're touching on soundbars, smart TVs, a $29 printer, and even a best-selling Apple product that's on sale. So let's get started.

So let's start with the most affordable item of the bunch. There we have the Canon Pixma Wired All-In-One Color Inkjet Printer. This is available at Walmart for just $29. So over 3,500 Walmart shoppers love this. And though it's wired, it's extremely lightweight and compact. You don't really move your printer around.

So printers are always hard to find, especially right now. Within 2020-2021, it's been really hard to find printers. So if you're looking for one, that's a steal. This is the one to get, just $29.

Next, we have a streaming device, pretty much the most high end streaming device that you can find. We have the Apple TV 4K available at Best Buy. So as we know, Apple products rarely ever go on sale unless they're available at third-party retailers. And right now, this one is $30 off at Best Buy for just 129.99.

So this one features Dolby Atmos for three-dimensional room-filling sound. So you're going to get a nice, crisp sound on this one. And in comparison to other streaming devices, like the Roku streaming stick and the Amazon streaming stick, the Fire Stick, this one is very, very high end compared to those. You are going to get a nice, crisp robust sound. This one is on sale for just 129.99 at Best Buy.

Next, we have two soundbars. So if you're using your TV speakers, your native speakers, as your main form of audio output, you need to get a soundbar, because soundbars will give you a massive improvement on your audio output, no matter what price your TV is. We've got a cheap TV, the audio output will be much better with a soundbar. And we have two of the best options that are on sale right now at Best Buy and Walmart.

First, we have the Samsung 2.1 channel soundbar with a wireless subwoofer available at Best Buy for just $150 off, which is 129.99. So this one also features Dolby Audio and it's the perfect base-level soundbar for those who want an easy setup, not much to it. It gives you good sound, you don't have a lot of wires, a lot of like back end controls to deal with. It's very simple. Put it on, it works well. 129.99.

Next, we have the Visio 2.1 Home Theater Soundbar with a wireless subwoofer as well. This one is even cheaper-- a lot cheaper-- at $59 off at Walmart for just $69. So Visio is a leading soundbar brand in America and this one is a best seller for a reason. It also has Bluetooth streaming, so you can use it like a Bluetooth speaker to play music when you're not using it for your television. So just $69 at Walmart.

Next, we have-- and lastly-- we have two smart TVs. So Black Friday is like the prime TV shopping like holiday for a lot of people. And we have two 55-inch options both available at Walmart. First, we have the TCL 55-inch Class 5 Series 4K Ultra HD Roku Smart TV.

It's a mouthful, but it has a lot of features that those who love streaming are going to love. This one is $222.30 off at Walmart, bringing a total drop down just to 477.69.

So this one is kind of like-- 55 inches, for example, is the sweet spot for those who have standard sized living rooms and living spaces. So you don't want anything too big or too small. This one is the perfect size.

This one comes with Roku built in, so you don't need to buy an additional streaming device, just use what it's already built in. It features Dolby Vision. It's the perfect streaming TV for both streaming and gaming.

Next, we have The Scepter 55-inch Class 4K Ultra HD LED TV. So this one is actually almost half the price of the TCL version that I just mentioned. It's $120 off at Walmart for just $248.

So to find a 55-inch smart TV for this cheap is very, very rare, so I would grab this as soon as you can. This one comes with all the standard smart TV controls and functions that we all love for this. It's very simple. It's not a lot to it, but it gets the job done. At 55 inches for 248 is a massive steal. I'd grab this as soon as you can.

And there we have it guys, those are the six best Black Friday tech deals available at Walmart and Best Buy. Keep in mind, that these deals will end soon, especially even before Black Friday. So shop now while they're still in stock.
