It used to be that buying a new TV meant a major dent in your wallet. Not anymore! There's no better time to save big — huge, actually — on a smart TV than during Amazon's annual Prime Day event.
And — surprise! — the mega-retailer just dropped a bunch of terrific Prime Day discounts early, including a jaw-dropping deal on the top-rated Insignia 24-inch HD Smart LED TV—Fire TV Edition. It's down to $90, from $170. We repeat: It's just $90! But you need to act fast to set yourself up for some intimate binge-watching on the cheap — this shocking discount won't last long.
You need to be an Amazon Prime member to take advantage of this Prime Day deal, as well as all the rest. Not yet a member? No problem. You can sign up for your free 30-day trial here. (And by the way, those without Prime still get free shipping on orders of $25 or more.)
Even though the price is low, the 'wow' factor is high — the Insignia has a picture as crisp and colors as vivid as models well above its price point. The audio, too, is top-notch. In fact, nearly 20,000 shoppers gave this model a perfect five-star rating. "I am honestly very pleasantly surprised with how much I like this TV," reported a satisfied Amazon shopper. "As far as clarity goes, I believe (HD) 720p is plenty for this screen size."
If it's out there, you can watch it
As a Fire TV Edition, this model lets you stream 4K movies and TV shows from Netflix, Hulu, HBO Max, YouTube, Disney+, Prime Video, SlingTV, Paramount+, Peacock and more without a separate streaming box or stick. And we love that Alexa is included in the remote. So if you’re not a fan of endlessly scrolling through a grid of titles (and who is?), you can just say, 'Alexa, play Unhinged,' and voilà.
How does it compare to other built-in video-streaming TVs? Take the LG 24-inch HD LED TV — it doesn’t come with video streaming or smart home voice features built-in, and it’s more expensive. Um...hard pass.
Cord cutters unite!
With its built-in Wi-Fi, the Insignia 24-inch Fire TV Edition TV lets you break free from cable. You won’t experience lag or latency while streaming HD movies and TV shows either.
"I have been very pleased with the Wi-Fi reception of the built-in Fire TV," continued the shopper. "It actually works a lot better than the USB plug-in external fire sticks, for whatever reason. Super handy in campgrounds with weak Wi-Fi or when using my phone's hotspot."
This five-star fan agrees: "Outstanding TV. The picture quality is great..." It also has three HDMI ports, so you can hook up a soundbar, video game console, or Blu-ray player. You can even surf the web right on the TV.
At just $90 (was $170), this top-notch TV is perfect for a small space. And at this price, it's almost an impulse buy! "Great value," said Captain Obvious (aka a happy Amazon shopper).
Although outdoor gardens have always been an appealing feature to homeowners, it is a luxury not everyone can dream of in the limited and cramped spaces our cities and apartments offer. If you are an urban homeowner, with no or little access to an outdoor space, you can create an indoor garden and give your house an instant makeover. You can even grow your own fruits, vegetables, herbs and flowers all year round, from the comfort of your own kitchen. Easy-to-maintain indoor plants such as snake
Since the release of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone — the first book in the series — in 1997, not only did its author JK Rowling establish herself as the master of the wizarding world but also created a magical universe for Potterheads through the books, which were later adapted into films. However, while portraying the stories on the screen, Harry Potter movies have often broken the rules that are established initially. The wizarding world of Harry Potter and the Hogwarts School of Wi
Embarking on a sailing trip in a private yacht doesn’t mean the group has to be large. Small groups of around 8-14 friends or family members, can take their pick from some of the best private yacht charters, to sail on Southeast Asian waters in utmost comfort.
