Today’s best deals include Samsung Galaxy smartphones from $100, refurbished HP Chromebooks, and TiVo mini VOX streamers. Hit the jump for all that and more in today’s 9to5Toys Lunch Break.
Samsung Galaxy smartphones start at $100
Today only, Woot is offering various Android smartphones on sale from $100. Our top pick is the Samsung Galaxy S10 128GB in certified refurbished condition for $430. Originally $750, it currently sells for around $650 at Amazon. Today’s deal is the best refurbished mention we’ve tracked. Notable features include a 6.1-inch display, Samsung’s PowerShare wireless Qi charging technology, and “all-day” battery life. We praised it in our hands-on review, noting that is a “truly excellent smartphone.”
HP’s 14-inch 64GB Chromebook for $240
Today only, Woot offers the HP 14-inch Full HD 1.1GHz/4GB/64GB Chromebook for $240. Free shipping is available for Prime members. Otherwise, a $6 delivery fee will be tacked on. As a comparison, this model originally sold for $399, and today’s offer is a match of the best we’ve tracked. Features include a 14-inch multitouch display, USB-C, 4GB of RAM, and 64GB worth of flash storage. You can expect over 10 hours worth of battery life on a single charge, making it ideal for keeping your work going all day.
TiVo Mini VOX upgrades your streaming setup
Best Buy’s official eBay storefront is offering the TiVo Mini VOX Streaming Media Player for $130. Normally $180, today’s deal beats our last mention by $20 and marks a new all-time low that we’ve tracked. The TiVo Mini VOX allows you to stream Netflix, Hulu, Plex, and more right out of the box. But, the best part is it can expand an existing TiVo setup. So, if you’ve yet to invest but plan to sometime in the future, you’ll be able to use this to watch content from your main TiVo DVR on any TV in the house without having to buy a more expensive dedicated recorder. Plus, the voice remote makes pulling up additional content super simple.
Lenovo 10-inch Smart Display drops to $100
Lenovo is currently offering its 10-inch Assistant-enabled Smart Display for $100. Originally retailing for $250, it now goes for $158 at Best Buy and $150 at B&H, with today’s mention matching the 2020 low. This is the perfect smart home expansion if you’ve already got Google Home speakers placed around your house. I love putting smart displays in the kitchen and office areas as it makes navigating your devices much easier. Plus, in the kitchen, you can use it to set timers with your voice or look up recipes.

TP-Link smart plug bundle $25
Amazon is offering four TP-Link Tapo Mini Smart Plugs for $25. Normally up to $40 there, today’s deal comes within just $1 of its all-time low that we’ve tracked and is the best available. Offering four individual smart plugs, these are the perfect addition to any household. Whether you want to schedule a router reboot in the middle of the night or have your coffee pot turn on first thing in the morning so you wake up to a fresh brew, these plugs make it easy. Plus, each plug can be controlled through an app on your phone or with voice commands via Alexa and Assistant.
