It used to be that buying a new TV meant a big dent in your wallet. Not anymore! Amazon seems to forget it’s not Black Friday yet: The mega-retailer is currently offering an amazing deal on the highly-rated Insignia 24-inch Smart LED HDTV, Fire TV Edition. It’s down to $80, from $170. Again, it’s only $80! But you need to act fast to prepare for an intimate binge on the cheap—these discounts won’t last long.
Image and sound that exceeds its weight
Although the price is low, the ‘wow’ factor is high: the Insignia has as sharp a picture and as vivid colors as models well above its price. The audio is also top notch. In fact, almost 16,000 Buyers gave this model a perfect five-star rating. “Honestly, I’m pleasantly surprised at how much I like this TV,” reported one satisfied Amazon shopper. “As far as clarity, I think (HD) 720p is sufficient for this screen size.”
At 24 inches, it’s perfect for tight spaces. Says one fan: “I don’t see how you’re going to get better sound on a TV this small. Perfect for the kitchen or bedroom… It also paired well with the Alexa Android app on my smartphone. Nothing to worry about.” complain”.
If it’s out there, you can see it.
Like the Fire TV Edition, this model lets you stream movies and 4K 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 on 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 his own league,’ and voila!
How does it compare to other built-in streaming video TVs? Grab the LG 24-inch HD LED TV — it doesn’t come with streaming video either integrated smart home voice features, and it’s more expensive. Um… hard pass.
Cord cutters unite!
With its built-in Wi-Fi, the 24-inch Insignia Fire TV Edition TV lets you break free from the cord. You also won’t experience lag or latency when streaming HD movies and TV shows.
“I am very pleased with the built-in Fire TV’s Wi-Fi reception,” the buyer continued. “Actually, it works a lot better than external USB-connected Fire Sticks, for whatever reason. Super handy when camping on weak Wi-Fi or when using my phone’s hotspot.”
This five-star fan agrees: “Excellent TV. Picture quality is excellent…” It also has three HDMI ports, so you can connect a sound bar, game console, or Blu-ray player. ray. You can even surf the Internet directly on the TV.
At just $80 (was $170), this top-tier set is almost an impulse buy. “Great value,” said Captain Obvious (aka a happy Amazon shopper).
And if the 24-inch model is too small for your viewing pleasure, you might want to pick up the 39-inch Insignia TV. Now it’s 30% off, which isn’t bad for a Smart TV. It has all the same great features of the 24-inch model, but with 15 more inches of fun.
