It used to be that buying a new TV meant a major dent in your wallet. No more! Amazon seems to forget that it’s not Black Friday yet: the mega-retailer is currently offering a jaw-dropping deal on Insignia’s 24-inch HD Smart LED TV, the top-rated Fire TV edition. It fell to $80, from $170. We repeat: it’s just $80! But you need to act fast to prepare for an intimate binge-watch session on the cheap — those discounts won’t last long.
Picture and sound that punch above its weight
Even though the price is low, the “wow” factor is high – the Insignia has as sharp a picture and as vibrant colors as models well above its price. The audio, too, is top-notch. Actually, nearly 16,000 buyers gave this model a perfect five-star rating. “Honestly, I’m very pleasantly surprised at how much I like this TV,” said one satisfied Amazon buyer. “As far as clarity goes, I think (HD) 720p is good enough for this screen size.”
At 24 inches, it’s just the thing for tight spaces. Says a fan: “I don’t see how you’re going to get better sound in such a small TV. Perfect for the kitchen or bedroom… Also pairs well with the Android Alexa app on my smartphone. No complaints .”
If it’s 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 box or separate broadcast key. And we love that Alexa is included in the remote. So if you’re not a fan of endlessly scrolling title grids (and who is?), you can just say, “Alexa, play A league apart,’ And There !
How does it compare to other TVs with integrated video streaming? Take the LG 24-inch LED HDTV – it doesn’t come with video streaming Or integrated smart home voice functions, And it’s more expensive. Uh… hard pass.
Cord cutters unite!
With built-in Wi-Fi, the Insignia 24-inch Fire TV Edition lets you break free from cable. You also won’t experience any lag or latency when streaming HD movies and TV shows.
“I was very pleased with the built-in Fire TV’s Wi-Fi reception,” the buyer continued. “It actually works much better than external USB pluggable Fire Sticks, for whatever reason. Super handy in campgrounds with weak Wi-Fi or when I’m using my phone’s hotspot. “
This five-star fan agrees: “Outstanding TV. The picture quality is excellent…” It also has three HDMI ports, so you can plug in a soundbar, video game console or Blu-ray player. You can even surf the web right on the TV.
At just $80 (was $170), this premium set is almost an impulse buy. “Excellent value for money,” said Captain Obvious (aka a happy Amazon buyer).
And if the 24-inch model is too small for your viewing pleasure, you might want to get the Insignia 39-inch TV. It’s now 30% off, which isn’t too shabby for a Smart TV. It has all the same great features as the 24 inch model, but with 15 inches more fun.
If you have Amazon Prime, you will of course get free shipping. Not a member yet? No problem. You can sign up for your 30-day free trial here. (And by the way, those without Prime still get free shipping on orders of $25 or more.)
