Best Chromecast Cyber Monday deals
Too often, there’s a discrepancy between a product’s price (what it costs) and its value (how much it’s really worth). Thankfully, Chromecast isn’t one of those products: it’s worth every penny. Usually retailing for $35 (£30, AU$49), the petite, USB-powered Chromecast offers all of the functionality of boxes three times its size at a quarter of the price. It completely outshines its closest competitors – the Roku Streaming Stick and the Amazon Fire TV Stick – and is ultimately the best bang for your buck. Plus, if you’re an Android user, you’ll even be able to mirror your screen via the built-in cast functionality.

Best Chromecast Audio Cyber Monday deals
Much like Chromecast, Chromecast Audio rewards users for hanging onto their older tech. It’s a quick and easy solution if you’re looking to inject some life into your wired speakers, and the investment, affordable as it is, will surely improve over time with more supported services and features.
At that, music lovers have little reason to resist Chromecast Audio. Apple Music, Amazon Prime Music and Tidal users might be bummed to hear that their apps aren’t supported. But, for everything that Chromecast Audio can currently do, it does quite well. This device deserves a place in your entertainment center without reservation.

Best Chromecast Ultra Cyber Monday deals
Don’t get us wrong. We still love Google’s Chromecast, the minimalistic puck that plugs into the back of your TV and allows you to stream content from your phone or tablet. There’s just one problem: it only supports a 1080p resolution.
But that was before Chromecast Ultra. Google’s latest supports 4K HDR streaming as well as Dolby Vision, starting with 4K Netflix and YouTube, and then Google Play Movies and TV when 4K content rolls out to the service later this year.
