TVs Under $500
Insignia 43-Inch Smart 4K Fire TV
This set from Insignia, Best Buy's house brand, does a nice job overall for both HD and 4K picture quality. But like many less expensive TVs, it can't get bright enough to deliver a compelling HDR (high dynamic range) experience. It has Amazon's Fire TV smart streaming service and Alexa voice-enabled digital assistant built into the set. Though this is technically a discount, this model was $60 cheaper during Prime Day, so the price may fall again during a future sales event.
CR's test results: Insignia NS-43DF710NA21 TV
Insignia 50-Inch Smart 4K Fire TV
This set from Insignia, Best Buy’s house brand, is a lower-priced model with satisfying overall picture quality but less impressive HDR performance. The model, which also uses the Amazon Fire TV smart TV system, is sold only at Best Buy and Amazon. While this price is decent, Amazon was selling this model for $40 less during Prime Day.

TCL 32-Inch 720p Roku TV
Those looking for a smaller, low-priced smart TV might want to consider this model, even though the picture quality is only decent. Thanks to the Roku TV smart TV platform, the set is easy to use and has access to lots of content.

Toshiba 32-Inch 720p Fire TV Edition
Those looking for a smaller, value-priced smart TV should consider this 2020 set. It has fine overall picture quality, plus Amazon’s Fire TV smart system built in. Like many sets this size, though, it has a fairly narrow viewing angle. This is a decent savings, though Amazon sold it for about $30 less during Prime Day.
CR's test results: Toshiba 32LF221U21 TV
Toshiba 50-Inch Smart 4K Fire TV
Like most other models in this series on sale for Prime Day, this TV is a fine overall performer, except for HDR performance. It supports the HDR10 and Dolby Vision HDR formats.

Toshiba 55-Inch Smart 4K Fire TV
This set, which also uses Amazon’s Fire TV smart TV system, is a fine overall performer, though like many lower-priced sets it can’t produce a great HDR experience. It also has better-than-average sound quality.

TVs for $500 to $1,000
Hisense 70-Inch Smart 4K Android TV
This model, sold only at Best Buy, offers satisfying overall picture quality, though like many less expensive sets it falls short when it comes to HDR. The set uses the Android TV system and comes with built-in Google Assistant.

Samsung 70-Inch Smart 4K TV
We didn’t test this model, the Samsung UN70TU7000BXZA, but we did test its 75-inch sibling, which performed very well in our labs except for the HDR experience. The set hails from the company’s 2020 mainstream (non-QLED) lineup.
Sony 55-Inch 4K Google TV
This is an entry-level 4K set with decent, if unexceptional, overall picture quality, plus not-so-hot HDR. Earlier this year, Sony moved from the Android smart TV system to Google TV, which has a main interface that helps you find shows and movies easier. The set’s price has fallen a decent amount since it was introduced.
CR’s test results: Sony KD55X80J TV
Sony 75-Inch 4K Smart TV
This jumbo set from Sony’s 2020 entry-level 4K series—the most affordable Sony series to use the Android TV smart TV platform—is a fine performer overall, but the HDR performance isn’t all that effective. The TV’s Google Android TV smart TV system has Chromecast and Google Assistant built in.

LG 65-Inch C-Series 4K OLED Smart TV
Like the B-Series model above, this TV scores well in CR's tests. In addition to having a slightly more powerful processor than the B-Series set, which helps it perform a little faster, it gets high marks for picture and sound quality, versatility, and viewing angles. This model, and the one above, comes with LG’s updated smart TV platform, plus its voice-enabled ThinQ artificial intelligence platform, which allows it to interact with and control other compatible smart home products. The TV also has built-in support for the Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant digital voice assistants, and it works with Apple AirPlay 2.

TCL 75-Inch 4K QLED Roku TV
If you're in the market for an extra large TV that performs well, this TCL model may be a good choice. It's one of the lowest-cost options right now, largely because it's a previous-year model. Among large-screen TVs under $2,000, this one has standout scores for overall picture quality and HDR performance.

TVs for $2,000 and Up
LG 77-Inch Smart 4K OLED TV
Anyone looking for a top-performing jumbo-sized TV should consider this LG OLED set, one of the best models we tested in 2020. It’s among a limited number of options that can deliver a truly compelling HDR experience, and it has great sound.

Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K
This 4K version of Amazon’s Fire TV Stick offers a nice array of content and features, including voice control and support for Dolby Vision HDR and HDR10+. Bonuses include the ability to control it from Alexa-enabled devices such as the Amazon Echo or Dot and the included remote, which can be used to control power and volume on many TVs and sound bar speakers. While this is technically a discount, Amazon was selling the Fire TV Stick for just $24.99 during Prime Day.

Apple TV 4K
This is the older Apple TV player—technically called the Apple TV MQD22LL/A—but it’s a fine performer, now at the lowest price we’ve seen. It’s a great, if somewhat pricey, choice for those who already live in Apple’s world. Just note that the new Apple TV models have an improved remote control.

Roku Streaming Stick+
This streaming device usually costs $49, so the $10 discount is a great chance to make it easier to watch your favorite shows. The Roku platform gives you the ability to access all your streaming services in one place, offering a category-leading assortment of channels so that you don't have to switch between multiple devices.
CR's test results: Roku Streaming Stick+ streaming device
Roku’s top 4K streaming media player boasts some new features, including built-in Bluetooth for streaming music from mobile devices, and support for both Dolby Vision HDR and Dolby Atmos 3D sound. It also has an improved WiFi range, so the player can be placed farther away from your router than previous models. The remote even offers voice search and programmable buttons.
