The CheckOut Review: Disney+ at Ben's Bargains

We just reviewed the new streaming service Disney+ ($6.99 / mo.), Disney's big splash into the streaming wars. The subscription gets you streaming access to Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars and Nat Geo movies and shows, Ultra HD streaming video quality and up to four streams at once.

The CheckOut Review: Amazon Echo Auto at Ben's Bargains

We just reviewed the Echo Auto ($40), Amazon's Alexa assistant for your car. My state just went completely "hands free" (as in you can get a ticket for as much as touching your phone while driving), so I put the Echo Auto to the test to see how it stacks up against simply using Siri hands free on my iPhone.

We could see the Echo Auto dropping as low as $25 this month, especially around Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Stay tuned on Ben's and remember to set a deal alert!

The CheckOut Review: Amazon Echo Buds at Ben's Bargains

We just reviewed the Echo Buds ($130)*, Amazon's first foray into the popular new product category of "true wireless" headphones. The twist is these earbuds have Alexa, the "always on" voice assistant that can play music, turn on your lights and tell you the weather.

We expect the price of the Echo Buds to drop this month, especially around Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Stay tuned on Ben's and remember to set a deal alert!

*Update: Amazon has a trade-in offer that knocks the price down to $98.

The CheckOut Review: Amazon Echo Show 8 at Ben's Bargains

Update [11/28]: It's now on sale for $80!

We just reviewed the new Echo Show 8 (currently on sale for $100 $80), Amazon's mid-sized smart display. It's a natural fit on a kitchen counter or bedroom nightstand and does a little bit of everything, including video, music, setting reminders and organizing your smart home devices.

The Echo Show 8 is going to drop in price again on Cyber Monday ($80). Stay tuned on Ben's and remember to set a deal alert!

The CheckOut Review: The Mandalorian at Ben's Bargains

Update [11/15]: The second episode is out! The show airs every Friday through December 27th (8 episodes total).

We just reviewed the first episode of The Mandalorian, the flagship launch title on the new streaming service Disney+ that launched today (free 7-day trial).

Produced by Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni, The Mandalorian is set 5 years after Return of the Jedi and looks to be a bit of a departure from the Disney-made movie sequels.
