The TCL 6-Series (R635) is one of the best 4K TVs on the market. This mid-range set uses a mix of quantum dot technology and mini-LED backlighting to offer some of the best picture quality we've seen in a sub-$1,000 TV. It also includes voice search with a microphone built right into the remote. Use coupon "PFALL15" to drop its price to $552.49.

Looking for something considerably cheaper? This is hands down one of the best TV discounts we've seen so far. Currently, you can score the Toshiba 55-inch 4K Fire TV for just $299.99. That's $100 off and one of the cheapest 55-inch smart TVs we've ever seen. Keep in mind, this TV doesn't compare to the TCL mentioned above. (The TCL is on a league of its own). However, if you want a cheap smart TV — this 55-inch Fire TV features 4K resolution, Dolby Vision HDR support, and Alexa voice controls.

The TCL 6-Series (R635) offer tremendous bang for your buck. In fact, it's one of the best TVs of 2020. In our TCL 6-Series Roku TV review, we dubbed it the best TV value of 2020.  

This mid-range set combines QLED technology with mini-LED backlighting to offer picture quality that rivals TVs twice its price. The backlight performance on the TCL 6-Series is very good, with the set's dimming zones doing an admirable job of providing high contrast light and dark with minimal haloing.

The TV's combination of QLED panel and mini-LED backlight reduced or eliminated many of the issues we normally encounter with LCD. For instance, we didn’t notice any shadows along the edges or in the corners of the display and the backlight consistency across the entire screen looked perfect. The TV was also great for gaming with a THX Certified Game Mode

Amazon currently has this TV at its full price of $649. Truth be told, we don't think Amazon will top this deal, so get this solid deal while you can.
