Another hot deal is on tap for you folks this morning, with Best Buy putting Samsung’s HomeSync set-top box on sale for $99. That’s a massive price drop from the typical $299.99 it’s offered for. HomeSync hooks up with your Galaxy smartphone or tablet so you can easily upload your photos and video to its 1TB of on-board storage (which you then play back on your TV for the whole family to enjoy).
Many were already of the opinion that HomeSync was overpriced, even if it did come with a whopper of a hard drive. After all, it is just a big box with a simplified TouchWiz interface that allows you to playback photos, video and music.
Unfortunately for Samsung, it’s tough to sell a $300 box when many people have no problem taking to the cloud or using streaming services to get their content over devices like the $35 Chromecast or the $99 Amazon Fire TV (and it also doesn’t help that it doesn’t work with anything but their own devices). Be sure to find it at Best Buy here if you think you can find some use for it.
