Need a new TV? Amazon has its No. 1 best-selling Insignia 24-inch Smart HD TV — Fire TV Edition on sale for just $90—its all-time lowest price ever! The standout set delivers eye-popping colors and exceptional picture quality — both of which are rare in this price range. The audio is top notch, too — and Alexa is included in the remote. So if you’re not a fan of endlessly scrolling through a grid of movie titles (and who is), you can just say, “Alexa, play Knives Out,” and she’ll make your wish come true.

“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 HD720p is plenty for this screen size. I’m a bit of a TV snob and the lower clarity is not noticeable in this size.”

A great tablet with a beautiful screen and lots of features doesn’t have to pricey, thanks to Amazon’s Fire HD line. This week you can save even more thanks to a special deal striking $40 off Amazon’s 10.1-inch slate, bringing the cost to a rather friendly $110. You get access to apps like Facebook, Instagram and TikTok, and you can watch your favorite videos on YouTube, Instagram, TikTok and more thanks to its gorgeous 1080p screen.

This stellar slate has almost 47,000 five-star reviews on Amazon, with shoppers like this one calling it a “high-quality tablet.” They call out its “great battery life and very responsive touch screen.” Another praises its “terrific” battery life.

As one older customer remarks, “Got this as an upgrade … Huge improvement, particularly in newer software and speed of operations. And yes, the bigger screen is a lot easier for this old guy’s eyes. Battery life is amazing. Not as heavy as I was afraid it would be … Can’t think of a single negative other than I should have upgraded to this a long time ago.”

When you need a monitor that’s good for both work and play, the UJ59 has a nice 4K screen that can be connected to multiple devices, like a laptop, desktop or even your favorite gaming console. Gamers will love its FreeSync feature that keeps their favorite games smooth and lag-free. This monitor’s slim profile and picture-in-picture capabilities make it a good choice for people who use a multi-monitor setup. The $300 price tag (down from $400) makes it a real steal, no matter if you intend to work or play.

In fact, it’s such a steal that one shopper bought three “to complete my four monitor setup. I use them for PC, PS4 and other HDMI video game consoles (ea. Monitor has x2 HDMI & x1 standard Display Port inputs).” But it’s great for more than just games, as this user attests: “I use this every day for work. I spend a lot of time with code, data sets, and visualizations of the data. This screen helps me see crystal clear text, or fit lots of applications on the screen at once. 4K is well worth it if you’re looking at tons of numbers all day long.”

Wireless earbuds are great for listening to music, audiobooks and podcasts during all sorts of activities. That includes yoga, chores or maybe just kicking back and relaxing with a good book on the couch. Some of the best earbuds on the market are those made by Apple; the company’s signature AirPods are comfortable, stylish and sound pretty great. The only caveat is that you’ll pay a bit of a premium on them. But not today — snag a pair for just $169.

Shoppers are thrilled with the third generation AirPods, bestowing more than 10,000 five-star reviews at Amazon. One reviewer called it an “amazing redesign, perfect for my ears…. The spacial audio is better than I could ever imagine, worth the price.” Another user said, “They sound great, have an excellent battery life and are definitely more comfortable than the original AirPods. Would definitely recommend trying these!”
