The Black Friday deals have landed. While the shopping holiday is technically still a few days away, a number of retailers have set several of their best Black Friday deals live early. Like everything else in 2020, this increase in advance sales is partially due to the ongoing pandemic: longer online sales (hopefully) means fewer people congregating in brick-and-mortar stores.

In any event, the early deals make it easier than usual to get a jump start on your holiday shopping. And if you’re interested in picking up some new gadgets or tech gear, the Dealmaster is here to help. As usual, we’ve dug through hundreds of advertised offers to find the early Black Friday deals most worth your time, discarding the price drops that aren’t really deals and the products that aren’t worth considering in the first place.

The result is our early Black Friday roundup below. We’re sure to see more noteworthy offers go live as we get closer to Black Friday proper—and we’ll have a separate roundup on the big day itself—but for now, we still have a truckload of great deals on TVs, video games, laptops, headphones, Bluetooth speakers, smart home devices, and much more.

Among the highlights so far is the lowest price to date on LG’s highly-regarded BX OLED TVs; the biggest price drop we’ve seen for Sony’s WH-1000XM4, our top pick among wireless noise-canceling headphones; new lows on recommended microSD cards like Samsung’s EVO Select; dozens of discounts on Switch, PlayStation, and Xbox games; and rare price drops on Sonos speakers, among various others you can check out below.
