Made with a 300ppi glare-free screen, the Kindle Paperwhite — on sale for $85 — offers a display bright enough to mimic the effect of reading from an actual page, without the headache-inducing reflection. Just as cool: An adjustable light shifts to accommodate the setting.
"...The display is gorgeous," raved a five-star reviewer. "I love how crisp the lettering is and how the pages actually look like real paper. There's barely any glare on the screen when held up in sunlight —a huge advantage over the iPad Mini ...."

Need a new TV? Amazon has the wildly popular Insignia 24-inch Smart HD TV — Fire TV Edition on sale for just $110! 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,” shared 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.”
Echo Frames — 60 bucks off right now — are designed to direct audio towards your ears, while also minimizing what the people around you can hear. So now you can listen to your favorite music and podcasts without worrying about what anyone else thinks or hears.
A huge perk of the Echo Frames? Alexa is built-in, so you can make calls (when synced to a smartphone), set reminders, add to your to-do lists, hear the news and control your smart home with just the sound of your voice — all from your frames! Noisy outside around you? No problem. Echo Frames will automatically adjust the volume based on the noise level of your environment.
Shoppers are rocking the Echo Frames. "Sound quality is fantastic and I'm impressed with the quality of the microphone as well," added a smitten user. "...It's pretty secret-agent awesome."
