Great store to buy excellent quality A/V cables at good prices.
They have many reviews throughout their site, making it easier to decide which kind of cables work for you.
People who buy a TV, Receiver, computer, printer, or phone may soon realize they need a bunch of cables.
Monoprice is our go-to place for stocking up on cables cheap, to avoid paying 15 times more for cables at retail stores.
For example, most printers do not include a USB cable.
Buying one in-store can cost around $25, and a nearly identical cable sells for $1.34 at Monoprice (plus shipping).
A hot deal IF you are looking for a curved 4K HDTV.
P.C. Richard & Son is selling a Hisense 55-inch 4K 2160p Curved LED-backlit LCD HDTV (model 55H9B2, or "H9-Series") for $480 plus $75 shipping ($555).
This TV normally sells for $800, and other similar curved 55-inch 4K TVs sell for at least $800.
Includes a 4-year parts & labor warranty, according to PCRichard.com.
Amazon has a lot of very positive reviews on this TV.
It seems like a big step up from their earlier models which had poor picture quality, since most reviewers say only great things about the quality.
It has 4 HDMI inputs, a PC input, has built-in Netflix and Youtube with Wifi, and is compatible with wall mounts.
Overall, this looks like a hot deal for someone looking for a curved 4K TV.
P.C. Richard & Son is a reputable retail store with locations in the New Jersey, Philadelphia, and New York area.
- Toshiba 55" 4K 2160p HDTV for $380
Toshiba 55-inch (55L621U) 4K 2160p LED-backlit LCD HDTV with built-in Chromecast for $380 with free shipping.
Most 55-inch 4K TVs sell for at least $500.
Inventory is regional, so it could be sold-out for some while in-stock for others.
Picture quality is decent, according to the reviews on BestBuy.com, but the Chromecast feature does not work very well.
Some people liked this TV, others did not.
Cyberpower 1500VA Pure Sine Wave UPS for $130.
Still our favorite battery backup/UPS for protecting computers and sensitive electronics, and normally sells for between $180 and $225.
Computers can lose data during power outages, and power spikes can damage hard drives.
This UPS provides battery backup, and should protect better than a regular UPS as shown in
They can run on Wifi and batteries (which means zero wires running to your cameras), but depending on range and camera quality settings, the batteries may need to be replaced every 2-8 weeks.
With 5 cameras, that can be a hassle.
However, the cloud setup interface is simple to use, making it a breeze to get up and running.
The Arlo is water resistant, and good for outdoor use.
If you are looking for simplicity, the Arlo has it.
If you are looking for a good surveillance system with excellent night vision range, there are better cameras.
Be sure to read the reviews before buying.

Sterling Silver Plated Cubic-Zirconia Earrings

We love them, and have probably been worn more than any other earring in the jewelry box.

Hisense 55-inch 4K 2160p HDTV for $460 with code UHD2X20 ($500 before coupon).
Three reviews to read/watch before considering buying this:
and Reviewd.com video review.
They say it is a good TV at an affordable price, probably the cheapest 55-inch 4K you can find.
It does have an input lag, so not the best choice for games.
The HDR is not true HDR.
However if you want a TV at a good price that also has good reviews, this seems like a solid choice.
If you want a cheap TV and don't worry about the reviews, check out a Sceptre 55" 4K 2160p HDTV at Walmart for $330.
A screen like this is best for TV shows and movies, and may not be the best choice for games and a computer monitor.
As one reviewer writes, its input lag may produce a tiny bit of ghosting.
This is common for HDTVs on gaming devices and computers.
If you use a desktop computer, we recommend a good "computer monitor" to help reduce eyestrain.
LG (55EG9100) 55-inch 1080p OLED Curved Smart HDTV for $1000 with free delivery.
This is $400 less than normal.
OLED is Organic Light Emitting Diode and is really awesome.
Unlike a regular screen which uses an LED bulb to emit light behind a LCD pixel screen, OLED pixels emit light and color within the same pixel.
Each pixel can be completely turned on and off, producing incredibly sharp images.
This means images can have true black levels, creating contrast not seen since the old, heavy, energy-hungry Plasma screens.
Hisense 55-inch 4K 2160p (model 55H7C) Smart HDTV for $378.
This is their latest model which normally sells for around $420.
Last year's model had decent reviews.
Most other 55-inch 4K HDTVs sell for at least $450.
In the cart, click "ship to store" which applies an automatic 10% coupon.
Final price is $387 plus sales tax.
It has decent reviews, but not great.
One review says its low brightness is not suitable for a bright living room, and CNet says its picture quality is not much of an improvement from less-resolution 1080p screens.
- Samsung 65" 1080p Smart HDTV for $750
Samsung (UN65J6200) 62-inch LED-backlit LCD 1080p HDTV with built-in apps for $800, and code 1021_HIS50H7C applies $50 off in the cart.

- Westinghouse 55" 1080p HDTV for $300
Westinghouse (WD55FB1530) 55-inch LED-backlit LCD 1080p HDTV for $300 when added to the cart.
Most other 55-inch HDTVs sell for around $450 to $600.
Many reviewers on BestBuy.com like the picture quality and value.
Our experience with Westinghouse TVs has been mixed.
We had one Westinghouse TV last 6 years, and still works fine.
Another completely died in 3.5 years.
Several people complained about their lack of any reasonable warranty service of TVs which died within 6 months, however that has never happened to us.
The Best Buy cart has an option to add Geek Squad warranty which covers the TV from any defects or outages, and would still keep the total cost less than most other 55-inch TVs.
