On sale for $504 (was $900), the Hisense 55-inch Class Quantum 4K ULED Android Smart LED TV is undeniably sleek, with a near edge-to-edge 55-inch display (translation: more picture, less frame). The 4K Ultra HD resolution at 2160p essentially gets you a movie theater-like experience at home, with mesmerizing colors. Also on board: Dolby Vision, the most popular HRD video streaming format, and Dolby Atmos, for immersive, hyper-lucid audio.
What else? Glad you asked! This set includes Android TV straight from Google, which gets you instant access to popular streaming apps like Netflix, Disney+, HBO Max, Hulu, Prime Video and YouTube, plus a wide range of gaming apps, such as NBA Jam, Crashlands and more that aren't available on the Fire TV or Roku platforms. Android TV is, not surprisingly, especially great for Android phone users, as it allows them to pair their cell to their set with ease.
"This TV is perfect for my family room," reported a very satisfied customer. "The screen is bright, with vivid color that pops.... The sound is good when using the built-in speakers.... This TV is perfect for cord cutters, tons of streaming options. You can use Google Assistant from the remote, and the voice features work well. There is a lot to explore...it's feature-packed with great performance."

“I can't even begin to describe how much I love this game!” a delighted customer shared. “It’s the best game I have ever played. From the beginning to the end, this game is perfection, it is so detailed. The game is so big it will take you months to see and do everything.”

The Roku Ultra — on sale for an all-time low price of $69, down from $99 — gets you access to HBO Max, Hulu, Netflix, Disney+ and more. It’s a must for older TV sets that don't have built-in streaming, or for people who've grown weary of watching Schitt’s Creek or Emily in Paris on a tiny tablet, laptop or phone screen.
One of the brand's most powerful devices, the Roku Ultra turns any TV with an HDMI port into a smart TV. It supports Wi-Fi and wired streaming via Ethernet for a smooth and steady HD and 4K Ultra HD picture quality. Translation: You’ll notice little loading time or buffering. Thanks to HDR (High Dynamic Range), you'll get vivid colors, inky blacks and the sharpest picture imaginable. And shoppers love that you can plug it directly into the internet.
"Absolutely the best streaming device out there," shared a delighted Walmart customer. "I have two of them wired because it offers the best performance instead of Wi-Fi. Nothing wrong with Wi-Fi, but on occasion I get a signal drop, or a buffer under-run which is just annoying. If you can get one wired directly to your router I recommend it. Plus, the Roku platform is very easy to understand. Even my five-year-old knows how to use it. Remote has some perks like being able to connect a set of wired headphones. And you can turn off and on your TV once it is set up — long range as well. Over 30 feet to browse menu with no problems."

The sleek, incredibly thin Acer Chromebook Spin 311 — on sale now for $199, or $100 off, at Walmart — is actually more than just a laptop. It has a brilliant 11.6-inch HD touchscreen display (at 1366x768 resolution) and flexible 360-degree hinge (hence the name 'Spin'), so it can rotate to any angle for use as a tablet. It's a true workhorse, with a Dual-Core Intel Celeron N4020, 4GB of memory and 32GB of on-board storage. It even features single USB-C and single USB-A ports and a stalwart 10-hour battery life. And shoppers just love its build quality and touchscreen.

The weight is extremely light with a very thin profile. Keyboard has a light touch and it has a touchpad, so you don't need a mouse, especially with the touchscreen as well."

On sale for $199 (was $299), the Shark ION Robot Vacuum RV750 is designed to tackle all sorts of household surfaces, unlike other devices that just suck up dirt and grime and ‘get stuck’ against a wall or under furniture. We consider it the jack-of-all-trades of floor cleaning.
This smart little guy uses a navigation system to map your home’s floor landscape, so it doesn’t bump into walls, scratch up furniture or plummet down stairs. With up to 90 minutes of battery life per charge, it can sweep up your hardwood floors and then switch to carpets and tiles at a moment’s notice, plus it can also be controlled and scheduled via its smartphone app or Alexa.
“So far so great! I really like this little machine, and it does a wonderful job cleaning,” raved a five-star reviewer. “It comes around so many times that it makes it hard to leave anything behind. It's pleasantly quiet and was easy to set up. So glad I went with this product and not the competitors. Worth every penny. I just don't know why I didn't buy it sooner!” Us neither!

Say hello to the ultimate summer-frolic top! This blouse floats away from the body, so you can look stylish and absolutely go for seconds and thirds at that barbecue without feeling constricted by a tight top. Pair it with shorts, leggings and jeans alike. The ruffled neckline and sleeves add a feminine touch, too. Available in three spotted colorways and its size options range from an XS to a 2XL. (Note: Shoppers say it runs a touch large, so order a size down if you want a more form-fitting silhouette.)
"This is the CUTEST shirt!" a shopper reported. "It is so flattering. I can wear it to the office with dress pants, wear it casually with jeans or leggings, or dress it up with a pair of heels. I cannot recommend this shirt enough."
Oh, and have we mentioned that it's more than 50 percent off right now?

There's nothing quite as magical as that bouncy blowout you get from a professional — nor anything quite as exhausting as trying to replicate it at home. Wrangling cooperation from a hairdryer and round brush is a workout — and that's no fun. What if there were an ingenious tool that could play both roles? Well, there is!
Revlon's Hot Air Brush is so much more than just a simple hair dryer — it smooths, styles and fluffs up your mane, all in one go. Plus, it minimizes frizz by 30 percent — a must for those muggy July and August days that are just around the corner.
"Wish I had this years ago!" a shopper shared. "I have thick, tenacious, wavy hair that takes me about an hour to straighten and style, and I usually end up looking sloppy and sad. No more!! This puppy gets my hair bone-dry, straight and styled in about 30 minutes. I'm not kidding when I say 'salon-quality results'; even my husband asked if I had had my hair done."

Health and wellness
As much as we all want to forget everything about this blasted pandemic, we might want to carry over one of the habits we acquired: sanitizing our hands. So, yes, keep a bottle on you at all times, especially now that it's not as difficult to procure as it was over a year ago. This set of four bottles comes out to just $2.50 each, and its formula is infused with jojoba oil to hydrate your mitts while you disinfect. And while the formula is scent-free, you can add a few drops of your favorite essential oil to up the fragrance factor.
"I wanted to find hand sanitizer that did not dry out my hands," one shopper reported. "After online research I decided to give this a try. It was exactly what I was looking for and worked great."

Cats have the uncanny ability to squeeze themselves into any cavernous space — a tossed-aside cardboard box, under the bed, behind the couch — and make it theirs. This two-in-one bed creates a safe space for them to curl up and rest (you know, because they're sooo busy all day), all while remaining semi-hidden from the world. It's made with super-soft fleece, and the pillow-y edges provide a great spot for them to rest their weary little heads. And when naptime's over, the bed opens up into a playmat, which they can use for frolicking or, you know, another nap, and which you can store away in a jiffy.
"Cats loved it!" one multi-pet owner rejoiced. "Played in and out, hide-and-seek, then slept in it."
