This story is part ofThe CNET guide for everything you need to know and how to make sure you get the best deal.
It’s over, but if you’re looking a lot for a new TV, there are still some great deals on big and small TVs. Here is our lineup of from brands such as Sony and Samsung, as well as lesser-known brands including Element and Westinghouse. Don̵

The best TV deals for Prime Day are still available
Switching to TVs that are actually sold by Amazon, the first is the Fire TV Edition (model 32LF221U21) from Toshiba. We didn’t like the 2019 version of this TV because its Fire TV menus push Amazon’s content too much and are more confusing overall than the simplicity of Roku TV. But it has a built-in Alexa and maybe it costs another $ 20 over the JVC above.
This element is a 50-inch 4K TV with HDR, which, like the JVC above, works with our favorite Smart TV OS, Roku TV. It has three HDMI inputs. This price is the lowest for a 50-inch smart TV we’ve seen so far during Prime Day, beating the previous champion, Waltart’s JVC Roku TV, by $ 18.
Do you feel any pattern here? Once again, the best price for a certain amount of Prime Day is not on Amazon or Fire TV (yet), but on another brand and Roku TV on another retailer. As with the models above, what we like about this model is the Roku operating system and the cheap price.

So far, the TVs on this list are affordable models without the kind of image quality features that make good video, including high dynamic range, really shine. The Vizio M Series is available with full set local dimming, which improves contrast and brightness. We haven’t reviewed this TV yet, and while we don’t expect it to work as well as the TCL 6-Series, it’s a lot cheaper, especially at the time of this sale.
The price below is for the 65-inch model, but Sam’s Club also has 55 inches at $ 429, also a $ 50 discount. Read more about the Vizio M 2020 series.

The first TV on this list that we reviewed, the 65-inch XBR-X900H is at its lowest price ever, compared to its original price of $ 1,600 and now only $ 100 more than the competing TCL 6-Series. This excellent Sony delivers Android TV, as well as superb image quality and next-generation connectivity that surpasses Roku and other kits with similar prices – just in time for the new Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5. Of course, this is a big step up in price from the other three here, but the savings are also huge.
Update: Sony has also lowered the price of the 75-inch to $ 1,600, saving $ 900. And although both sizes seem to have sold out on Amazon, they are still available at Best Buy. Read our review of the Sony XBR-65X900H.
If the Sony above is a good TV, this one is even better. This is because it uses OLED technology, which in our tests provides significantly better picture quality than any of the non-OLED TVs out there. We haven’t reviewed the A8H, but based on experience, we believe it will be almost as good as the best OLED TV we’ve looked at – the LG CX – for $ 700 less at 65 inches. The A8H is at its lowest level at major retailers, including Amazon and Best Buy, with the 65-inch (listed below) being $ 1,800 and the 55-inch ($ 1,300).
If you want to get a TV for under $ 100, the JVC’s LT-32MAW205 can only be the ticket. After all, this 32-inch HD TV (it has 720p resolution) has a built-in Roku, so when you consider what you would spend on a Roku media player, it’s like getting a TV for about $ 70. This kit has three HDMI inputs, USB and a set of audio and video connections.
Regularly $ 130, you can save about 24% on sales while deliveries last.
Samsung’s QLED isn’t as good as OLED, but this TV is much bigger and cheaper than Sony’s above. The Q60T is Samsung’s cheapest QLED series and lacks image quality benefits such as full-array local dimming. We haven’t reviewed the Q60T, but based on its specifications, we doubt it will work as well as TVs like the 75-inch TCL 6-Series. On the other hand, this price makes it $ 200 lower than this TCL, so if you’re more interested in size than top image quality, it’s worth considering.
