Let’s face it, a big TV isn’t always an option, especially if you live in a tiny apartment or prefer a more nomadic lifestyle. In those instances, it might be wiser to buy the Xgimi MoGo 2 Pro, a portable Android TV projector that’s small enough to toss in your backpack before heading out the door. Thankfully, Xgimi’s 1080p smart projector is currently on sale at Amazon for $399.99 ($200 off) when you clip the on-page coupon, which drops it to one of its lowest prices to date.

Despite its small stature and modest 400 ANSI lumens, the MoGo 2 Pro can project large, 200-inch images while delivering surprisingly good picture quality at smaller sizes (think 30 inches). It looks best when viewed in the dark, like most projectors, which results in a brighter, richer image than if you were to view it in a room awash with ambient light. That being said, picture quality is only part of the equation. Xgimi’s mini projector also has Chromecast built-in and doubles as a surprisingly solid Bluetooth speaker — one you can easily run on a USB-C power bank should the need arise.

If you’re an Apple fan looking to pick up a new smart speaker, Apple’s pint-sized HomePod Mini has returned to its all-time low at Best Buy, where you can grab in one of five colors for $79.99 ($20 off).

If you’re embedded in Apple’s ecosystem, the HomePod Mini can make life a little easier. As Apple’s smallest Siri-based speaker, it integrates well with other Apple devices and can act as a dedicated smart home hub, allowing you to control various lights, locks, plugs, and other compatible smart home gadgets. Thanks to a post-launch software update, it can also monitor temperature and humidity levels — something that is particularly useful when paired with a connected thermostat or air quality monitor. Then there’s the speaker itself, which produces good sound for its size and more bass than similarly-sized options from Amazon and Google. It can’t rival the second-gen HomePod and bigger, more expensive speakers, but then again, it doesn’t have to when it costs less than a third of the price.
