(US DEAL) • Toshiba 32" HD Smart LED TV - Fire TV Edition • $79.99 (US DEAL)

Deal Link:
Price:
79.99
Expiry:
February 22, 2019
Retailer:
Google Express
**** YMMV - US DEAL, NO SHIPPING TO CANADA, YOU'LL NEED TO SHIP TO A FORWARDER (LIKE CROSSBORDERPICKUPS) OR TO AN AMERIFRIEND***"

$79.99 (USD) if you use the first time Google Express purchase coupon, otherwise $99.99 (USD)

https://express.google.com/u/0/product/ ... x3beQ1lEC0

https://www.amazon.com/Toshiba-32LF221U ... way&sr=8-1

Perfect for the bedroom, load your favorite streaming app, IPTV app, YouTube via the Smart Tube app, or Amazon Prime Video if that's your "cup of tea"

Just when I thought all the best TV deals were in the rear-view, bam: Today only, and while supplies last, the Toshiba 32LF221U19 32-inch Fire TV is just $99.99. Are. You. Kidding. Me?

Like Roku TVs, a Fire TV comes with lots of streaming apps: Netflix, HBO and so on and you get the benefit of an Alexa-enabled remote, so you can just tell the TV which channel or show you want.

What's more, Fire TV affords access to various Alexa skills and a huge library of Amazon apps. For example, you could play the excellent party game Quiplash -- something Roku can't do.

The screen itself tops out at 720p, or a 1,366x768-pixel resolution. This means it's not ideally suited for computer use. But don't let that "low" resolution dissuade you: At this size, 1080p isn't really necessary to enjoy HD goodness.

Best Buy Canada currently has this TV on sale for $220+tax (reg. $300+tax). With this deal you get the same TV for approx. $110 (CDN, pre-tax & forwarding fees)

Decent deal op. One thing that confuses me maybe I am wrong I see there's a button for crave on the remote. I didn't know crave was available in the USA. This is a great tv for the kid room. Too bad I don't like going threw USA hassle.

For a 32" bedroom TV 720p will suffice, you won't notice a difference, obviously you're not putting this in your living room

Are you sure you're not clicking the BestBuy Canada link on the bottom of the post? The US version has HBO & PS Vue button while the CDN remote has CTV & Crave.

yes I will notice 720p on a 32 inch tv, just as I would notice 720p on my 21-25 inch computer monitors. If cost is an issue, this is fine, if it isn't, this is horrible; sincerely wouldn't even use it if it was free, it would just be junk metal unplugged in my house.

1080p 40+ inch TVs were being sold for <$200 cdn

So you're that type of person - this has nothing to do with a time machine. The information is useful to know because it shows TVs are getting cheaper while retaining quality, there is no need to give up anything less than 1080p for ~$60-100 unless, like I said, that amount of money is important for you. Secondly, those deals are constantly popping up, yet again, no need for a time machine. No it wasn't the fire tv edition, and I definitely don't care if this one has fire tv because it's 720p.

Thanks for that little tid-bit, I was wrong to assume that the average RFD HotDeals poster doesn't care about saving money. FireTV is a plus as you don't need an extra streaming box to use IPTV or streaming service.

Not sure if you're being sarcastic and trying to start an argument and reading between the lines on purpose or you're actually ignorant. I deemed 720p too poor for the money you save, and here you're talking about saving money out of all context. How about I sell you my 13 inch 480p monitor for $10, hot deal to you right, got to save the money right?

edit: Took out some unnecessary comments. Just saying, if quality matters to you, don't get this, I never said the deal was bad, great for kids or anyone who don't care about picture quality, I will even upvote to demonstrate that

has an excellent remote and streaming capability.But if your a single peep sure hey go 1080 maybe 4k.

But thro in multiple 1080p tvs in every bedroom streaming 1080p simultaneously in a multi dwelling with variable higher bitrates across sources? Since if they're like my kids watch/stream/game but always stream multiple things,at the same time across a variety of devices. Now compliment that with 4k for larger main entertainment rooms and HD 1080 or better sporting games all happening at once.

Your Up,S,Creek! something has to give if your package isn't already quite pricey to sustain it. Somewhere you start saying hey I'm paying so much,why so slow.Plus upscaled 720p to 1080 looks worse than 720p native.

Or you buy simple 720p tvs like this mandated for the bedrooms and have less headaches, cheaper, covers mid range packages and you don't even need much of a powerhouse qos router to compliment it. Budget tv for a budget scenario=rfd
