The Wirecutter's best deals: Save $1,200 on a 55-inch LG OLED TV
From Engadget - July 6, 2017

LG C7 55-Inch OLED TV

Street price: $3500; MSRP: $3500; Deal price: $2300

While the update to our best TV guide is still in the works, this deal on our new upgrade pick is too good to pass up. This is the first and biggest sale we have seen on our upcoming upgrade pick, dropping it by $200 from the normal street price. Since this is the first sale, it's hard to say how long this deal will last, but it is the best price we have seen so far. Stock is pretty low (15 at the time of posting) but as a high price tag item, it probably wo not sell out very quickly. Still, if you are looking for a new TV and want the best picture quality, this is the time and price to pick it up.

The LG C7 55-Inch OLED TV is our upcoming upgrade pick in the update to our guide on the best TV. Chris Heinonen writes, "If you want the absolute best TV available regardless of price, the LG C7 OLED TV is your best bet. For people after the best image you can get, an OLED stands apart from everything else. The OLED image pops far more than an LCD and looks much better when viewed from the side."

Apple iPad (5th Gen) 32GB

Street price: $330; MSRP: $330; Deal price: $300

Another drop on the 5th gen iPad lowers the price back to $300 for the 32GB model. This $30 off sale is also available for the 128GB size ($400 with discount). Silver, Gold, and Space Gray colors are all eligible for the discount in both storage capacities. We will continue to track the most recent generation of iPads for future sales, but right now this is as low as we have seen these models go. Shipping is free.

The 5th gen iPad is our new top pick in our Best Tablet guide. Dan Frakes and Nick Guy write, "The 2017 standard iPadthe 9.7-inch non-Pro model, officially called the "iPad (5th generation)"is a familiar device. Its body is almost exactly the same as that of the 2014 iPad Air,2 and except for improved processors, its internals mostly match those of the iPad Air 2, the model it replaces (and our previous top pick). Yet the 2017 iPad remains the best tablet on the market for most people because of that familiarity: It shares its predecessor's unique combination of performance, features, hardware quality, app selection, and accessory ecosystem, and improves on its value."
