Whether your existing set broke or you are simply ready to upgrade now, you can still find discounts on great models. You might not save as much as you will later this year, but it’s certainly better than paying full price for a new TV.

TVs Under $500
This 70-inch 4K smart TV from Insignia, Best Buy’s house brand, is a fine overall performer, but its HDR (high dynamic range) performance is ineffective, mainly because of peak brightness limitations. It uses the Amazon Fire TV smart TV system, and Alexa is built in for using voice commands.
Why it’s a good deal: This is the best price we’ve seen for this TV, an especially impressive bargain for the size.
The Toshiba 65M550KU may be a good choice if you want a smart 4K TV and don’t want to deal with a streaming device. It comes with the Fire TV platform built in, so you’re ready to stream as soon as you set up the unit, and while it doesn’t perform quite well enough to live among the best TVs CR has tested, it does get above-average scores for 4K UHD performance. It has a wide viewing angle, too, making it suitable for a family room or other commonly used space in your home.
Why it’s a good deal: The sale price of this set is $20 less than it’s been recently, making it the lowest we’ve ever seen for this model.
TVs for $500 to $1,000
The Amazon B08T6JZTH4, one of the new Fire TVs sold under Amazon’s own brand, was already at this price before Amazon Prime Day began and was more than $300 below what Best Buy was offering. The TV is in the step-up Omni series, with a slimmer design and a few more features than the Amazon 4-series sets. Those features include Dolby Vision HDR and built-in microphones for hands-free operation. In our tests, this model performed well for HD and 4K picture quality, but its HDR performance was minimal, mainly because of limited peak brightness. The TV uses Amazon’s Fire TV system, with built-in Alexa and a voice remote for voice commands.
Why it’s a good deal: At its lowest, this set was selling for $750, so this is very close to the best price you’ll see for this model.
This set, the Samsung QN55Q80A, is in the company’s top regular QLED series for 2021 that doesn’t include Mini LEDs in their backlights. However, it still manages to deliver very good overall picture quality, top-notch HDR, and above-average sound.
Why it’s a good deal: This TV usually retails for around $1,000, so the discount isn’t quite as impressive as it looks, but it’s the lowest price we’ve seen since Prime Day.
TVs for $1,000 to $2,000
This 65-inch set, the LG OLED65B1PUA, is an entry-level 4K OLED TV in a series from 2021. We didn’t test this model but have tested the 77-inch version (shown here). That set delivers top-notch picture quality, with HDR effectiveness that’s a bit below what you’d get from the C- and G-series models. We expect that you’d see similar high-level performance from this TV.
Why it’s a good deal: This TV is now back to its Prime Day price.
TVs for $2,000 and Up
Anyone looking for a top-performing jumbo 4K TV should take a look at the Sony XR-77A80J, a 77-inch OLED TV from 2021 that’s one of the best sets we’ve tested. You’ll get great overall picture quality, effective HDR performance, and even top-notch sound. Like other Sony smart TVs, it uses the Google TV system with Google Assistant built in.
Why it’s a good deal: This set is back down to its Prime Day price for the first time since the big sale.
