On sale for $178, down from $228, the Hisense 40-inch Class Full HD Roku Smart LED TV is undeniably sleek — with a near edge-to-edge 43-inch display (more picture, less frame). With an HD resolution at 1080p and DTS True Surround Sound, you’ll essentially have a movie theater-like experience at home, with colors that pop.

The built-in Roku streamer gives you instant access to thousands of video streaming channels, including Netflix, YouTube, Disney+, HBO Max, Prime Video, Hulu and ESPN+. It also has a few smart home features like voice search for hands-free navigation. That’s right: You can find your favorite TV shows and movies, just by speaking them into existence.

"Great TV. Once I selected 'theater sound' the clouds parted and there was entertainment bliss — OK, maybe that's a bit extra, however, the sound did vastly improved," shared a delighted five-star reviewer. "Perfect size for me. Easy setup and operation."

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away... Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order for Xbox One takes place between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope in the Star Wars timeline and follows a young Jedi Padawan named Cal Kestis, who survived the massacre of the Jedi Order. Now he must complete his Jedi training and master his lightsaber, while the Galactic Empire tries to hunt him down.

Although the award-winning title brings a lot of new gameplay and Force abilities that might be tough to master, it’s just flat-out fun to play. Right now, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is on sale for $20 — nearly 70 percent off — at Walmart.

"I'm 45 and really never played games, but I picked up this Star Wars game on Xbox One X. It helps me de-stress after 12 hours in a medical facility," shared a five-star reviewer. "This is pure awesome. This game is insane. My Xbox One X has all kinds of passes and games, but this is the only one I want to play, it will blow your mind."

The Roku Express 4K+ — on sale for an all-time low price of $29, down from $39 — gets you access to HBO Max, Hulu, Netflix, Disney+ and much, much more. It’s a must for older TV sets that don't have built-in streaming, or for people who've grown weary of watching Schitt’s Creek or Emily in Paris on a tiny tablet, laptop or phone screen. One of the brand's most powerful devices, the Roku Express 4K+ turns any TV with an HDMI port into a smart TV. It also supports Wi-Fi for an HD and 4K Ultra HD picture quality. And shoppers love it more than Amazon's Fire TV Stick too.

"Bought this to replace my aging Fire TV Stick and I couldn't be happier," raved a savvy Walmart shopper. "The operation is fast and responsive, the interface is intuitive, and the remote very functional. I don't even need my tv remote anymore. Best of all, Roku never tried to funnel me to their proprietary app or try to sell me things! Also, the price is right!"

On sale for $148 (was $299), the Shark ION Robot Vacuum RV750 is designed to tackle all sorts of household surfaces, unlike other devices that just suck up dirt and grime and ‘get stuck’ against a wall or under furniture. We consider it the jack-of-all-trades of floor cleaning.

This smart little guy uses a navigation system to map your home’s floor landscape, so it doesn’t bump into walls, scratch up furniture or plummet down stairs. With up to 90 minutes of battery life per charge, it can sweep up your hardwood floors and then switch to carpets and tiles at a moment’s notice, plus it can also be controlled and scheduled via its smartphone app or Alexa.

“So far so great! I really like this little machine, and it does a wonderful job cleaning,” raved a five-star reviewer. “It comes around so many times that it makes it hard to leave anything behind. It's pleasantly quiet and was easy to set up. So glad I went with this product and not the competitors. Worth every penny. I just don't know why I didn't buy it sooner!” Us neither!
