Black Friday 2014 dealsThe best deals in tech on the biggest sales day of the year

Last update: 6:48 pm EST 28 November 2014

The biggest shopping day of the year is fast approaching. They call it Black Friday, the day after American Thanksgiving, and while the origin of the name as the point where retailers' balance books shift from being in the red (running a loss) for the year to black (profit!) is dubious (any business that's losing money for 11 out of 12 months probably won't be around for next year's sales), the day still sees numerous retailers across the country offering substantial deals on a wide range of products.

What follows are our hand-picked best deals for this year's Black Friday sales. We don't believe in recommending sub-par quality products, regardless of if they're a few bucks off on a random day or not. We're only pointing out sales on quality merchandise that we might consider buying if it weren't on sale. But they are on sale, so the deals are yours to take!

Not sure if one of these deals is right for you? Check out our Black Friday Deals forumBlack Friday Deals forumBlack Friday Deals forumBlack Friday Deals forumBlack Friday Deals forum for discussion on the latest deals.

A few caveats…

  • The deals noted below are only promised to be valid on Friday, November 28th (i.e. Black Friday). Some retailers may offer sale prices earlier, or through the weekend, but no promises.
  • Prices listed on this page are only retailer-published Black Friday sale prices, and may not be reflected on their respective websites until the day of the sale.
  • Some sale prices may only be available in retail stores on the day of the sale, and possibly only in limited quantities.
  • Other prices may only be valid with another purchase (such as smartphones requiring a signed 2-year contract); we will do our best to note such requirements.
  • Prices and availability of any item, are of course, subject to change without notice.
