You may have already seen Engadget posting reviews from our friends at The Wirecutter. Now, from time to time, we'll also be publishing their recommended deals on some of their top picks. Read on, and strike while the iron is hot -- some of these sales could expire mighty soon.

M-Audio Studiophile AV 40 Speakers

Street Price: $150; MSRP: $200; Deal Price: $80

This matches the best price we've ever seen on these speakers. The previous time we tossed them up at $80, it was a similar limited time deal from B&H, though we expect this one to last a few hours longer. We've featured deals on them at $100 and still think they're a great value at that price, plus, you're not likely to find a better price than $80 during Black Friday sales.

The M-Audio Studiophile AV 40 Speakers are our pick for the best computer speakers. Brent Butterworth wrote, "In our tests, no other computer speaker came close to offering the combination of sound quality and value we found in the M-Audio Studiophile AV 40. With one possible exception, it equaled or bested the sound quality of any other speaker we tried."

GoPro Hero4 Silver Action Camera

Street Price: $330; MSRP: $400; Deal Price: $300

This is a great discount on our favorite action camera. We've seen quite a few deals in the past for $330, but that's slowly become the new street price. Now this deal is the best discount we've ever seen on the Hero4 Silver. As always with Rakuten, we suggest using a secure payment method like PayPal.

The GoPro Hero4 Silver is our pick for the best action camera. Brent Rose writes, "The GoPro Hero4 Silver takes everything we loved about the GoPro Hero3+ Black and makes it easier to use, thanks to a touchscreen and overhauled menu system. Throw in more low-light shooting options and the same price tag, and you have a clear pick for best action camera."

Logitech UE Boom Bluetooth Speaker

Street Price: $170; MSRP: $200; Deal Price: $100

We've previously featured deals on this speaker in the $150 range and down to about the $120 range, but dropping down to $100 and having a good selection of colors available is a first. While a new model has been released, it's going for $200 and the differences aren't that extreme. It also makes it more affordable to grab two of these and run them in stereo mode.

The Logitech UE Boom Bluetooth Speaker is our runner-up pick for the best water-resistant Bluetooth speaker. Brent Butterworth wrote, "The UE Boom is fuller, clearer and more robust than most Bluetooth speakers can muster. The Boom doesn't play as loud as the Megaboom, and it's not as waterproof. But if the Megaboom is sold out or you want something more affordable and/or more portable, the Boom (which was selling for $180 on Amazon when we wrote this) is a great choice."

He went into some extra detail about its size, "The Boom is an easy speaker to live with. It's about the size of a slightly stretched 12-ounce soda can, and weighs about half as much as a full soda can, so you can fit it in a beach bag or even most computer bags. It's IPX4-rated, which means it'll survive a splash and can probably being left out in the rain, but a hose blast or dunking might silence it forever."

Breville BFP800XL Sous Chef Food Processor

Street Price: $400; MSRP: $500; Deal Price: $326

This is the best price we've seen on this food processor since we started tracking it. While it was slightly cheaper in 2012, it hasn't dropped below $360 since. And it's rare to see any discount on it at all. It hasn't even dropped under $375 this year, so this price is a great deal. The price only applies to the stainless steel model.

The Breville BFP800XL Sous Chef Food Processor is our more powerful pick for the best food processor. Christine Cyr Clisset said, "if you need extra power or a bigger blending bowl, or if you don't mind paying twice the price for nicer features, the Breville Sous Chef was the overall best performer in our testing. It chopped vegetables, ground bread crumbs, puréed hummus, and shredded mozzarella about as well as the Custom did, and it excelled at slicing. The Sous Chef powered through an entire russet potato in less than a second—noticeably faster than any of the other models. And despite its power, it was the quietest of the bunch at kneading dough."
