If you're in the market for a TV at a low price with a high wow factor, look no further than the Insignia 24-inch Class F20 Series Smart HD Fire TV, available this weekend for an amazing $100 (down from $170)! This set delivers a crisp picture, vivid colors and top-notch audio, and — cord cutters, rejoice! — this particular model is a Fire TV edition, which means it lets you stream 4K movies and TV shows from Netflix, Hulu, HBO, YouTube, Disney+, Amazon Prime Video, SlingTV and more without a separate streaming box or stick. No wonder over 18,000 customers have bestowed a five-star rating on this it.

“I am honestly very pleasantly surprised with how much I like this TV,” shared one connoisseur. “As far as clarity goes, I believe (HD) 720p is plenty for this screen size. I’m a bit of a TV snob, and the lower clarity is not noticeable in this size.”

You can expect superior audio quality, of course, courtesy of 6mm speaker drivers that produce powerful, crystal clear sound and heart-thumping bass.

They're also ideal for sweating it out in the gym, thanks to their IPX8 Waterproof Nano-coating that efficiently protects the earbuds and charging case from water damage.
