Looking to get your holiday shopping done early and cash in on solid deals at the same time? You may find something on Lazada Philippines, as the online store is holding its biggest sale event from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. on Tuesday, November 11.

Lazada is calling it the "11-11 Online Revolution," and we've been told to expect a smorgasbord of bargains, hourly flash sales, giveaways, as well as exclusive deals on some yet-to-be-announced products. Among the items up for grabs is a 40-inch 1080p Internet TV from Coocaa, which will cost only P13,990 instead of P17,990 on that day.

The TV packs dual-band WiFi and supports screen mirroring to Miracast-ready devices, so you can stream shows and movies to your heart's content directly from the Web or from a smartphone or tablet.

We've spent some time with a demo unit and came away impressed. Its picture quality is up to par with competing models from top Korean brands, plus it boasts all the bells and whistles of an entry-level smart TV, including first-party apps for Facebook, Twitter, and Flickr.

Of course, the biggest upside here is still the price. At under P14,000, this 40-inch Coocaa TV certainly feels like a bargain.

Also included in Lazada's one-day sale is a Coocaa 24-inch 720p LED TV for P5,990, down from its suggested retail price of P7,990. Both Coocaa TVs come with a two-year warranty.

Shenzhen-based Coocaa is the second brand under the Skyworth Group, the company responsible for Skyworth consumer electronics and audio-visual products. But while Skyworth units are sold in traditional retail channels, Coocaa TVs are exclusive to ecommerce platforms (think Xiaomi), which translates to roughly 10 percent in savings compared to similar models from the former, we're told.

In November last year, Coocaa held a flash sale in China and set a Guinness World Record for selling 56,272 televisions in one day.
