Sony’s state-of-the-art Processor X1 is the power behind its true-to-life visuals, while HDR (High Dynamic Range) settings make sure colors stay bright and black levels are dark. Get ready: It’s going to feel like you’re sitting in the middle of all the action.

This 4K TV includes Google TV with instant access to hundreds of popular streaming apps like Netflix, Hulu, Disney+, HBO Max, Paramount+, Peacock and much, much more.

I am exhausted and don’t want to talk to people. These are perfect for when you’re feeling anti-social on the plane, in the airport....hell, anywhere! The 22-hour battery life and noise cancellation are mind-blowing. Definitely worth the money!"

Plus, the bundle includes the GE Smart Plug (a $15 value), which can easily pair with the Google Nest Mini. Simply plug into a wall outlet, then plug in anything like a lamp, a TV or even a coffeemaker.

Then connect the plug to your Wi-Fi network and use your phone to sync to the Google Home app (for Android smartphones and Apple iPhones). That’s it! Now you can control just about anything in your home with your phone or just the sound of your voice via the Google Assistant. Fun!

"I am amazed at how much sound can come out of this little bitty device," said a five-star Lowe's reviewer. "The ease of setting it up via Wi-Fi was a breeze...I would recommend this little device for not only sound, but also ease of use. It can make your life simple and up-to-date if you carry a busy workload. Set a reminder and it will remind you even with a little music."

If you can’t let go of your old CDs and love listening to the radio, the Bose Wave Music System IV is the ticket. And for the 4th of July, HSN has temporarily dropped the price of this gem from $500 to just $300. That’s the lowest price we’ve found on the web right now — a savings of 40 percent.

This Bose speaker system projects crisp sound, and comes equipped with a Bluetooth receiver add-on, so you can wirelessly sync your smartphone or laptop to it. The design is elegant, minimal and slim, making it a seamless addition to your entertainment center or on its own in a bedroom, kitchen or living room. It also comes with a remote. If you enjoy waking up to the sound of music or the radio, you can program the system’s timer to sync up to your preferences too.

“Perfect sound system for the home,” wrote a five-star Bose reviewer. “The sound is simply stunning and fills the entire room. The radio reception is superb and the ability to play Internet radio via TuneIn brings this product firmly in the 2020s!”

New to HSN? Score an additional $20 off with promo code HSN2021 at checkout — and bring the price down to just 460 bucks. And if you’d rather not pay all at once (we get it), HSN lets you opt for five "FlexPays" of just $60, with no interest at all. Plus, free shipping!

On sale for $170 (was $230), the Samsung Galaxy Tab A7 weighs just over a pound and features 32GB of storage (expandable up to 1TB via microSD card). That's got it all over Apple’s entry level tablet, which isn’t expandable. And unlike the iPad, the Tab A7’s 10.4-inch display has a full HD widescreen for immersive viewing.

Also out-Apple-ing Apple? The A7's camera set is better than the one that comes with the iPad. It has an eight-megapixel selfie cam with a five-megapixel rear shooter on the front for video calls. "Mostly use for mobile gaming. Tried to play PS4 remote play, and it worked," reported a satisfied gamer. "Sound is great and build quality is better than iPad. Speed is seamless."

“I have played it three times now,” shared a delighted gamer. “On each play through, I found something new, which I most likely missed because of the insane attention to detail in this game.

"The stylus makes using Lightroom and other creative apps a breeze. Being able to use the cloud is a must because the storage would fill up pretty quickly...The large screen is also a good thing for activities like editing photos, drawing, and taking notes. Start up, web browsing, and apps are quick. The battery life is really great for everyday use..."

Big fan of the tamper as I have ruined more than my fair share of spoons with other blenders."

Tired of pleading with your cat to stop scratching the sides of your couch? This pole just might be the temptation she needs to stay away. It's covered in thick sisal rope, and has a wide base so it won't topple over as she digs her claws in. At the very top, a rotating feather (or mouse, or ball — the scratcher comes with plenty of options) ensures she's fully engaged. You can even adjust the height of the pole, so smaller cats and kittens can get in on the fun.

"Our cats have been obsessed with this thing since I set it up!" a shopper shared. "They immediately went crazy for the toys it came with and are now scratching the post instead of my furniture! Amen!"
