If you’re thinking of buying an “extra” TV (one for the bedroom or kitchen, perhaps) we’ve found the one. Amazon just slashed the price of the Insignia 24-inch HD Smart LED TV—Fire TV Edition to $100. We repeat: $100. Now’s the time to set yourself up for lengthy winter binge-fests.

And if you have Amazon Prime, you’ll get free shipping, of course. Not yet a member? No problem. You can sign up for your free 30-day trial here. (And by the way, those without Prime still get free shipping on orders of $25 or more.)

Impressive picture and sound

Even though the price is low, the wow factor is high—the Insignia 4K TV has a crisp picture and vivid colors. The audio, too, is top notch. “I am honestly very pleasantly surprised with how much I like this TV,” reports a satisfied Amazon shopper. “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.”

The best shows and movies

As a Fire TV Edition, this model 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. (Cord cutters, rejoice). And we love that Alexa is included in the remote. So if you’re not a fan of endlessly scrolling through a grid of titles (and who is?), you can just say, ‘Alexa, play A Simple Favor,’ and voilà.

How does it compare to other built-in video-streaming TVs? Take the LG 24-inch HD LED TV—this model doesn’t come with video streaming or smart home voice features built-in, and it’s more expensive. Hard pass.

Cut the cord and ditch cable

With its built-in Wifi, the Insignia 24-inch Fire TV Edition TV lets you break free from cable. You won’t experience lag or latency while streaming HD movies and TV shows either.

“I have been very pleased with the Wi-Fi reception of the built-in Fire TV,” continues the shopper. “It actually works a lot better than the USB plug-in external fire sticks, for whatever reason. Super handy in campgrounds with weak Wi-Fi or when using my phones hotspot.”

The Insignia 24-inch Fire TV Edition TV has three HDMI ports, so you can hook up a soundbar, video game console, or Blu-ray player. You can even surf the web right on the TV.

For just 100 bucks, to say this is a steal is an understatement. “Great value,” says a fan.
