California-based HDTV maker Sceptre revealed today its newest addition to the Color Series lifestyle line of LED HDTVs, the 32-inch X322XV-HDR. The TV comes in a burst of color options, including standard black, pink, purple, and pearl white, which could make it a hit in playrooms, childrens’ bedrooms, kitchens, and any other space that needs a splash of color.

The X322 LED LCD display offers only 720p resolution, which doesn’t quite match up to the 1080p standard HDTVs we see these days at lower price points. However, when it comes to comparing 720p and 1080p on a 32-inch screen, the difference in resolution is negligible – especially to the average observer. And the real selling point here is the X322XV’s choice of vibrant exteriors.

For connection, Sceptre’s freshly dropped X322XV has three HDMI inputs, one cable/antenna IEC-connector, composite and component connection, a VGA input for connection to a PC, and a USB 2.0 port. Audio outputs include both digital and analog audio outputs, and a headphone out.At 12.3 pounds, the TV is extremely lightweight, allowing  you to easily mount it in all sorts of spots like, say, the bathroom? We’ll let you decide.

Our biggest issue with the new display? The price. At $600 MSRP, this TV is way off scale in comparison to offerings from more regal competitors, which can be found for around $300. Sceptre claims it will sell for $500 on Amazon, but we’ve yet to see that materialize, and even at that price it’s no bargain.  

If the X322XV is too rich for your blood, Sceptre’s Color Series also boasts a 24-inch model for $400 on the company’s website, though that’s still damned pricey for a TV that size. Compare Sceptre’s LED HDTVs for yourself and determine which one – if any – is right for you.

While there’s no doubt that the cost of the new X322XV is plenty steep, if you’ve got some extra cash burning a hole in your pocket – and a room that needs some spicing up – a choice from Sceptre’s Color Series may just be the display you’ve been looking for.

The Onn. 43-inch Class 4K LED Roku Smart TV on an orange wall.

Prime Day may be done and gone, but a lot of retailers are letting Prime Day deals stick around a little longer. This is great news if you're looking to add to your home theater, as Roku Prime Day deals have survived the end of Prime Day. Roku makes some of the more popular streaming devices on the market, but it also makes TVs and licenses its platform to other TV makers. A number of Roku TVs are left from the Prime Day TV deals, and there are also some Roku streaming devices still discounted. Read onward and we'll take you through the best Roku Prime Day deals still going on after Prime Day and don't hesitate to make a purchase if you see something you like, as any one of these deals could end without notice.

Hisense prices its 65-inch CanvasTV way less than The Frame
Hisense CanvasTV.

Hisense's new -- a direct competitor to Samsung's popular The Frame TV -- can now be ordered in its 65-inch size for $1,300. That's $700 less than Samsung's $2,000 regular price on its 65-inch Frame TV. Hisense had previously announced that the 55-inch CanvasTV would cost $999, but that smaller model has yet to hit retail.

Hisense has a history of offering deep discounts on its TVs, so we may see both sizes of CanvasTV (officially known as Hisense Class S7 CanvasTV 4K QLED Google TV) drop in price in the not-too-distant future.

The best Prime Day soundbar deal sold out — buy this instead
The LG S90QY soundbar in the living room.

The best soundbar deal that we found during Prime Day sold out quickly, so if you weren't able to make a purchase, it's time to pivot to another amazing offer. This one is from Best Buy, which has slashed the price of the LG S90QY 5.1.3-channel soundbar to only $500. That's a $300 discount on its original price of $800, and we're not sure how long it's going to stay up. The savings may be gone as soon as tomorrow, so if you don't want to lose another opportunity, you should complete the transaction immediately.

Why you should buy the LG S90QY 5.1.3-channel soundbar
To understand the benefits of buying the LG S90QY 5.1.3-channel soundbar, you should understand what the numbers mean in its name. As you can read in our guide on how to buy a soundbar, the "5" means there are five channels -- the standard left and right channel, a center channel that makes dialog clearer, and a pair of surround sound speakers. The "1" means that the soundbar comes with its own subwoofer, and the "3" means it supports Dolby Atmos with three dedicated drivers that fire upwards at the ceiling to create a surround sound experience.
