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.

Refurbished Canon 70D EF-S DSLR + 18-55mm IS STM Lens

Street price: $1,100; MSRP: $1,100; deal price: $680

Canon's refurbished sales tend to have a $50-$100 discount off of their already solid refurbished prices and this deal is just that, with $50 off of the usual pricing for this kit. We've seen previous 70D deals around $800 with the 18-135 lens, which is a little more useful for video, but this deal is significantly cheaper and may be a better value for someone that doesn't need the longer part of that range. Canon refurbished deals come with a full warranty.

The Canon 70D is our runner-up and video pick for the best midrange SLR. Amadou Diallo said, "What really sets the 70D apart from most of the competition, however, are its benefits for video shooters. Powered by Canon's Dual Pixel AF system (Amateur Photographer offers a good technical explanation), the 70D offers fast, precise autofocus in live view and video modes, traditional areas of weakness for DSLRs. Imaging Resource called this feature "a rare, groundbreaking innovation" when the 70D was launched in 2013, noting, "this technology finally puts true camcorder-like performance into an HD-DSLR. And when using live view for still shooting, the advanced autofocusing felt nearly as fast as traditional viewfinder shooting under most scenarios."

JLab Epic Bluetooth Headphones

Street price: $100; MSRP: $100; deal price: $56

This new Office Depot sale drops these headphones a huge $30 under the best price we've seen to date. They tend to fluctuate between $90 and $100 on Amazon, with the occasional drop to $88, so this is a significant discount. They're also offering free overnight shipping.

The JLab Epic Bluetooth Headphones are our pick for the best wireless exercise headphones. Lauren Dragan wrote, "The JLab Epic Bluetooth gets our overall recommendation thanks to a design that was very comfortable for nearly all of our reviewers, with a lightweight, effortless feel on your head whether out on a run or doing burpees and sound quality that everyone enjoyed. We recognize that most people don't like or want a cord when they work out, so for many, Bluetooth is a must, which confirmed the Epic as our overall recommendation over less-expensive wired and sealed options."

Jabra Revo Wireless Bluetooth Stereo Headphones

Street price: $140; MSRP: $200; deal price: $80 with code DNWSREVO80

This sale from DealNews is the first we've seen on the Jabra Revo headphones since December 2014 when they were still a top pick. They've been supplanted by the Jabra Move since then, but they're still a good pair of headphones, and this is a price lower than any deal we've seen, even back then. Shipping is free, but don't forget to add the code DNWSREVO80 in your shopping cart to knock the price down to $80. The only available color is Black.

These headphones are more of a step-up pick with a heavier bass in our guide on the best Bluetooth headphones. Lauren Dragan said these headphones "sound great as Bluetooth headphones, as well as with a cord. They fit everyone well, are light and comfortable, and have intuitive touch-based controls that were actually useful."

Samsung 850 EVO 1TB Internal SSD

Street price: $300; MSRP: $500; deal price: $260

A new low on this fantastic SSD. We've been watching this drive drop from $300, $10 at a time, in a slow price war between Newegg and Adorama. Typically, they'd match each other for a few weeks but we only saw them post $270 deals twice before this drop to $260.

The Samsung 850 EVO is the top pick in our guide on the best SSDs. Nathan Edwards said, "It's fast, cheap, and consistent, and it comes from a company that makes its own SSD controllers, firmware and NAND, which means it gets first dibs on the good stuff. (The company is able to design the entire SSD to work together from the start.) Samsung has made some of the best SSDs on the market for the past four hardware generations; this is no exception."
