TVs and home theater

If you need (or would wisely prefer) to combine great picture quality with the streaming ease of Amazon Fire, your perfect TV is the Amazon Fire 65-inch Omni Series 4K Smart TV, now available for $500 (was $830) at the mega-retailer. The Fire TV Omni Series brings 4K Ultra HD picture quality, Dolby Digital Plus audio, access to more than 1,000,000 movies and TV episodes, and the magic of hands-free control with Alexa to your living room in one sleek package.

The built-in microphone lets you say things like, “Alexa, Play Something on Netflix” so you can discover a new film or show selected just for you. You can also ask to check the sports scores, set timers and reminders, and more — even when the TV is off.

"This was purchased as a replacement for my bedroom TV, and I’m blown away for the price," raved a delighted five-star reviewer. "The picture is sharp, the colors are accurate with a little tweaking, which is normal, the blacks are surprisingly decent, game mode seems to work well, and the response time is good. After spending a day with it I’m very happy with the purchase."

Need a lightweight, compact laptop to bring on your summer travels? We recommend the Asus L210, which you can nab this weekend for just $200, down from $250! It's super, super slim, with a 11.6-inch screen and a ton of features. Those include an Intel Celeron N4020 processor, 4 gigs of RAM, 64 gigs of hard-drive storage (not terribly large, of course, but way more than enough for everyday use), a touch-activated NumberPad for at-your-fingertips math-intensive work and, of course, WiFi and Bluetooth capability.

At this price and with so much convenience, no wonder the L210 has got a lot of five-star admirers. "Super compact, awesome battery life, handles Win 10 and basic productivity apps no problem," mused one five-star reviewer. "If you loved the portability and battery life with your Chromebook but missed some features of Windows, this is perfect....It runs spreadsheets, word processors and anti-virus software with no issues.

It'd be nice to see who is at the door without getting up and walking through the house, especially if you're three hours deep into a Netflix binge. Well, that's possible if you have a smart doorbell! The number one bestseller at Amazon is their very own Blink doorbell, and right now it's on sale for only $60, saving you nearly 30 percent.

With the Blink, digital alerts appear on your phone or Alexa device whenever someone buzzes. Your device of choice will show you who's there, in hi-def, even if you aren't home. Blink's features are customizable, so you can decide if you want to see only movement directly in front of your door or a wider view of the street.

With nearly 23,000 five-star reviews, you really can't go wrong with this system. One reviewer shared, "I got this doorbell because it’s cheaper than the Ring. It was easy to set up. Two screws into the door frame, and I was able to slide it on. The camera works well, and I was able to link it to all my Alexa stuff. I did the no-wire version, and it works well!"

What's cooler than having a robot clean your home for you? Well, just about nothing — that's why we recommend the iRobot Roomba i3 (3150) Robot Vacuum, on sale this weekend for almost 30 percent off.

The iRobot Roomba i3 delivers cleaner floors with less effort, thanks to intelligent, straight-line navigation that uses floor-tracking sensors to clean purposefully and logically in neat rows.

One savvy shopper wrote, "I loved it so much that I bought a second one. One for each floor. The amount of dog hair, dust and dirt that it picks up is crazy...If I had a third floor I'd buy another!"
