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.

Ring Video Doorbell

Street price: $200; MSRP: $200; Deal price: $170

While this isn't the lowest price we've seen on this video doorbell, it is a good $30 drop from the street price and the first decent sale in months. This deal is currently only available for the Venetian Bronze model.

The Ring Video Doorbell is our runner-up, smarthub compatible pick in our guide for the best smart doorbell cameras. Stacey Higginbotham wrote, "If our top pick is out of stock, or if it doesn't fit the front of your house, our runner-up doorbell camera is the Ring Video Doorbell, which is better known because it's been available longer than the SkyBell HD. Its video and sound quality aren't as good, but it has the basic features that anyone buying a connected doorbell could want, including motion detection, the ability to connect to the doorbell for a live view of what's happening at the door, and night-vision capability. It does require you to pay a small monthly service fee to see the events you may have missed, though."

Refurbished GoPro Hero 4 Black Action Camera

Street price: $450 (new); MSRP: $500 (new); Deal price: $330

The first time this year we've seen a great deal on this camera, which makes sense, since a new GoPro was just announced. You'll want to look over the specs of the new model to consider whether that would fit your needs better. We did see a $350 sale on new models of this last Black Friday, but nothing worthwhile since. This refurbished model comes with a full year of warranty. Make sure you're registered for Ebay Bucks, so you get an additional 2% back.

The GoPro Hero 4 Black is our 4K video pick in our best action camera guide. Brent Rose said, "The big selling points on the Black are 4K footage (3840×2160) at up to 30 fps; 1080p video at 120 fps for super smooth slow-motion; and a whole array of modes in between."

Sennheiser HD 600 Headphones

Street price: $400; MSRP: $400; Deal price: $294

The best price we've seen on these headphones in over a year. While there were times they dipped lower, towards the $250 range, that was about 18 months ago. The past couple of weeks have seen these dip down to $320, with smaller drops since then, bringing them down to this current $294 deal.

The Sennheiser HD 600 are our runner-up pick in our guide for the best open back headphones under $500. Brent Butterworth wrote, "The Sennheiser HD 600 headphones almost couldn't be more different from the HE400S. They use dynamic drivers—essentially miniature speakers—instead of the HE400S's planar magnetic drivers. The HE400S model was brand new when we did this test, while the HD 600 has been around (although with a few changes) since the late 1990s. While the HD 600 has a mellower sound than the HE400S, we picked it for the same reason we liked the HE400S: Its sound has no annoying idiosyncrasies, and most of our panelists liked it and none hated it (not the sound, anyway). Overall, the HD 600 headphones are completely enjoyable to listen to, with a more relaxed sound than the HE400S model, that might appeal more to fans of jazz, folk, and classical."

Victorinox Flexible Boning Knife

Street price: $33; MSRP: $40; Deal price: $23

While we used to regularly see this for $23 during 2015, this knife shot up to $33 at the start of the year and it hasn't dropped since. This drop gives you plenty of time to get ready for any holiday carving.

The Victorinox Flexible Boning Knife is our boning knife pick in our Thanksgiving guide. The SH staff wrote, "The Cook's Illustrated pick, as well as the top-selling and top-rated Amazon pick, is the Victorinox 6-Inch Flexible Boning Knife with Fibrox Handle. If you don't want to get a dedicated knife, the tip of your chef's knife can handle this small task, albeit with less finesse."
