Of these, we'd say the Fire TV Stick 4K is the best buy for most people. We've recommended it in multiple gift guides in the past, but it remains a powerful way to get 4K HDR content to your TV without putting too much of a dent in your wallet. It supports all the major streaming apps and HDR formats, consistently performs smoothly, and has more robust voice search capabilities than its closest analogue, the Roku Streaming Stick+. That Roku streamer has a far tidier, if somewhat boring, interface than the Fire TV Stick 4K, but generally speaking, the best choice between the two is whichever one is on sale at the time. Amazon will usually discount its Fire TV Sticks at various points throughout the year, but this current deal is as low as we typically see it outside of major sales events like Prime Day and Black Friday. If you aren't buying it for a 4K TV, just make sure to save some cash and get the standard Fire TV Stick instead.
If you have no interest in a new media streamer, we also have deals on Google's Pixel 3a smartphone, AMD Ryzen processors, Eero mesh Wi-Fi routers, and more. Have a look at our full deals rundown below.
