It’s a big investment for a vacuum cleaner, but keep in mind that this is a $600 discount on a bot that vacuums, mops, cleans its own pads, and empties and refills itself. Robot vacuum cleaners aim to keep your home clean on a regular basis without you having to lift a finger, and the X1 Omni is more hands-off than most. Plus, it has other useful features including AI obstacle avoidance to prevent running over cables and a built-in camera that can even act as a security camera with two-way audio. Some of the biggest drawbacks are the hefty price tag and sheer size – both the robovac and the included dock are fat — but the current discount helps remedy at least one of those. Read our review.
The S22 Ultra was our choice for the smartphone with the best camera last year, beating out the iPhone 14 Pro and Pixel 7 Pro in our shootout. In addition to its camera chops and great portrait mode, it packs a speedy Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor, an excellent 6.8-inch 120Hz OLED display, and IP68-rated weather sealing. It even comes with Samsung’s S-Pen, for those of you still sticking to older Note devices that can feel astray without a stylus. It can be tempting to splurge on the latest and greatest Android phone, but the last-generation Ultra remains a good buy if you want flagship quality but don’t want to spend more than $1,000.

Speaking of last-gen devices that are a great buy in 2023, you can still get the 2021 12.9-inch iPad Pro in the 128 GB, mobile configuration for $999.99 ($300 off) at Woot. The larger iPad offers many of the same specs found on Apple’s 11-inch slate – including Face ID, a speedy M1 processor and support for Apple’s Center Stage feature – but with a brilliant Mini LED display. The main downside to the deal is that it only comes with a 90-day warranty from Woot, as opposed to a one-year warranty normally offered by Apple. If you can overlook that, though, the 12.9-inch tablet can easily last for years, whether you want to use it for creative work or just stream content on its high-quality display. Read our review.
Missed all the streaming device deals we saw at Amazon ahead of the Super Bowl? Don’t worry, because now Amazon’s Fire TV Stick 4K Max is on sale again for an all-time low of $34.99 ($20 off) at Amazon, Best BuyAnd Goal. The Fire TV Stick 4K Max is one of our favorite streaming devices, largely because of its great integration with Alexa. The included remote allows you to issue voice commands as specific as “turn to ESPN on Sling TV” or simply “turn off the lights.” The streaming stick also offers access to a wide selection of streaming apps, fast performance and future-proof support for Wi-Fi 6.
