HomePod mini

B&H Photo is offering one of the first straight cash discounts on the HomePod mini and its new colorful options, now available for $94.99, down from $99.99. Although a slight discount, this is still the best deal around online as no other Apple reseller has yet to offer notable savings, besides a very rare discount from Walmart a few months ago.

If you're shopping for the latest Apple TV 4K models, B&H Photo has the 32GB for $169.95 and the 64GB model for $189.95, both representing savings of $10. These are some of the lowest prices we've seen on the 2021 Apple TV 4K models, and the 32GB version specifically is an all-time low price.

Hold out for the HomePod mini to hit $75 if you can. Though it may only be the white color.

That would be the highest I'd pay for it. No 802.11ac, inferior sound to the regular HomePod, and $5 off isn't exactly compelling.

Why would you need 802.11ac to play audio?
Not for audio. For Home Hub and HKSV processing -- since you aren't allowed to disable the Home Hub functionality in HomePods. Each camera is a constant 2 Mbps video stream when HKSV is enabled with monitoring or recording, and being able to keep the HomePod at higher MCS rates helps control airtime utilization.

Honestly, the real problem is that the one device that Apple makes that can't be connected to wired Ethernet is also the one device that forces you to accept it as a Home Hub. They really should just let you control that like they do with Apple TV and iPad. There's no reason not to. Or at a minimum, they could probe the other Home Hubs and automatically give priority to wired ones. But instead it will select one at random and chew through your Wi-Fi airtime without a care in the world even when it's a complete waste of resources.

this is so true. I would totally buy a new Apple TV if It would stay as the Home hub 100% of the time
