With more people spending time at home this year, many are looking to upgrade their home entertainment system. Although our neighbours south of the border will be able to take advantage of tech deals through Amazon Prime Day (the shopping event runs through June 21 and 22), Canadian shoppers will still have to wait while it's currently postponed in Canada. 

While we wait for more details on the return of Amazon Prime Day in Canada, Amazon's latest deal offers shoppers the chance to save $170 on a 43-inch Smart TV that’s sure to provide endless hours of quality streaming.

The Toshiba 43-inch 4K Ultra HD HDR Smart LED TV offers 3840 x 2160 Ultra HD screen resolution for crystal clear image of your favourite shows or video games. The Toshiba 43-inch offers multi-channel 3D surround sound through dual 10W speakers for a full, theatre-like “immersive” experience.

“The picture quality — clarity, colour and brightness are excellent. The TV arrived within four days of purchase (very prompt given these challenging COVID-19 times), securely packed and undamaged,” one shopper wrote. “It was very easy to set up. We use it only for TV and DVD viewing, so we cannot comment on the Smart and gaming features - but with an added Bose sound-bar, it makes viewing like being in a movie theatre. We are extremely pleased with this purchase.”
