This TV is going strong during the Amazon Holiday Dash Sale! Right now, you can score the TCL 40-inch HD Smart LED Roku TV (40S325) for just $198, down from $330. This super-popular model has lots of fans; more than than 23,500 shoppers have given it a perfect five-star rating.

What makes this TV so special? It features a bright, vivid 40-inch LED display with Full HD resolution at 1080p. This means colors are bright and vibrant, and black levels are deep and dark instead of murky, gray or dull. Plus, Roku video streaming is already built-in. Plus, shoppers say it’s great for small rooms.

“I was looking for something nice for my room that was reasonably priced. I'm so happy I found this tv,” exclaimed a satisfied shopper. “The smart portion is very easy to use and the setup took about 20 min fairly quick. I use Netflix, YouTube and I have my direct TV on here also. The picture is very clear and I got a little soundbar to go with it. Nice bang for my buck. This is a great TV for a small room.”

On sale for $279 (was $350), the 10.4-inch Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Lite is a great alternative to the Apple iPad. In fact, it’s so easy to use and versatile, it just might convince iPad users to switch to Android altogether. It’s back in stock on October 27, but you can pre-order now to lock in this low price.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Lite weighs just over a pound and boasts 64GB of storage (expandable up to a whopping 1TB via microSD card), compared to Apple’s entry level 32GB (without expandability). On top of that, the Tab S6 Lite’s 10.6-inch display has a full HD widescreen for immersive viewing, while the iPad is not widescreen at all. Plus, it comes ready to go with up to 13 hours of battery life per change and it comes with Samsung’s iconic S-Pen stylus—now that’s something Apple’s tablet doesn’t include!

“The S-Pen works great and has several features I like,” shared a happy shopper. “The S-Pen is easy to use, it glides across the screen, no lagging. Also, it doesn't scratch the screen. To start the S-Pen, just hold the Pen on the right side of the tablet, about a quarter inch away. Then touch the S-Pen Icon for the menu of the S-Pen features.”

These Sony Noise Canceling Headphones are on sale for $38, or $31 off. That’s a 45 percent savings! They’re wired, with a nearly four-foot long cable and a 3.5mm headphone jack, and offer impressive active noise-canceling with a whopping 80 hours of battery life. Translation: You can block out just about all background noise for days on end (that’s more than three days if you’re not keeping track).

“These exceeded my expectations,” wrote a happy Amazon reviewer. “It's an eerie thing to have an air conditioner or fan running nearby just cease to exist when you hit the switch on the back. And while it's true it doesn't block out people speaking the same way, once I have music pumping through my headphones it doesn't seem to matter—I can see folks are talking but I can't really hear them. They are magic and I cherish them. Someone will have to pry these suckers from my cold, dead hands to make me give them up.”

“What I like about it: The suction power is strong and I am surprised how much dirt it picks up after just five minutes,” shared a five-star Amazon reviewer. “We have carpet in the house and this works very well transitioning to the tile floors. We also have play mats on the carpet and the robot vacuum went over the play mats with no problem.”

Maxi dresses aren’t just a summer staple — they’re great for fall, too! Pair this flowy style with knee-high boots or ankle boots, and throw on a leather jacket for a stylish look. It looks just as great belted as it does loose. And, it has pockets!

“Awesome dress!” one shopper shared. “After giving birth to my daughter I have felt very very self-conscious about my ‘mom body’. However, this dress is so comfortable and very flattering. I was scared because it's a loose fitting dress I would look like I was wearing a muumuu lol. I looked awesome and actually felt pretty again! Will be buying more in other colors!”
