The best time of year to buy a new TV has arrived. That's because Cyber Monday TV deals are now live offering the lowest prices of the year. For instance, last year Best Buy offered the Vizio 55-inch 4K OLED TV for just $899. That's been the cheapest OLED TV of all time. However, Amazon just broken that price record with a 48-inch LG OLED TV for just $896 (and it comes with a $100 Amazon credit).

TV buying tips and how to find the best TV deals
- Don't buy a TV with less than 4K resolution. 4K is the standard these days, so unless you see a very cheap 720p or 1080p set, try to stick with 4K.
- Likewise, don't buy a TV without "smart" capabilities. This makes it easy to stream content from apps like Roku, Hulu, and Prime Video. If you don't like the idea of owning a smart TV, you can always leave it disconnected from your network (which essentially strips all of its smart features).
- Look for HDR compatible sets. They offer more realistic colors and better contrast. There are 5 HDR formats, but the main ones you want are HDR10, HDR10+, HLG, and Dolby Vision.
- Avoid paying for extended warranties. New TVs include a 1-year warranty and your credit card company usually provides additional protection.
- Stay away from refurbished TVs (unless the savings are massive). The problem with refurbished TVs is that if your TV has more dents and scratches than you anticipated, return shipping is usually on you, and shipping a large TV can get expensive very quickly.
- Look for bargains on older sets: Many 2020 TVs are still on the market. Usually the differences aren't that noticeable to the average buyer, so when possible stick to the previous year's model. You'll find cheaper TV deals that way.

The best cheap TVs: 4K and 1080p
The budget friendly Insignia 4K Fire TV Edition (2020 model) is a smart TV for people who want Alexa and a wide variety of streaming services in a single package. The cheap 4K TV offers HDR support (Dolby Vision) and a huge library of apps. However, its real selling point is its price and wide range of smart capabilities, which makes this one of the best cheap TV deals you can get.
While it's true that you get what you pay for — the performance isn't top-of-the-line, the gaming support is middling and the Fire TV platform is a little too Amazon-centric for our liking — it's still a great choice for casual viewers. And that's before the TV deals kick in.

When it comes to value, the TCL 6-Series Roku TV (R635) is our top pick. The Editor's Choice TV offers premium picture quality and a great smart TV experience for less than its competition. The R635 also ups the ante with mini-LED backlighting in addition to QLED. The result is impressive color and brightness, with some of the best HDR performance we've seen on anything this side of an OLED display.
Features like THX Certified Game Mode also help make the 6-Series one of the best gaming TVs available. From the design's smart touches, like cable management in the stand, to the always-solid Roku TV platform, the TCL R635 is one of the best TV deals you'll find right now.

The Samsung 65-inch LED NU6900 has most of the features you would get from the best smart TVs, at an attractive price that's under $500. That's a steal for a 65-inch 4K set, and while the LCD TV may not offer Samsung's quantum-dot QLED display, everything on offer is poised to match whatever entry-level TV you might find on the market. Check out how to connect your Samsung smart TV to Alexa, if you wish.
For that affordable price you can get 4K resolution, HDR support and Samsung's excellent smart TV platform, at one of the best size-to-price ratios around. We're not so hot on the limited port selection or the lack of some more premium smart features, but the NU6900 is still a great option for anyone who wants to get a solid 4K smart TV without spending a lot. The attractive design, strong contrast and a decent smart TV experience make it a great set for the price.
The Toshiba 55-inch 4K Fire TV Edition (55LF621U19) is Amazon's second crack at selling its own smart TVs, which have one big selling point: Amazon’s Prime Video and Alexa voice controls are baked right in. In addition to Prime Video’s extensive catalogue of movies and shows, you’ve got one of the best voice assistants on the market as close as your remote. And it’s not some half-measure – the Alexa on your TV can do everything Alexa can do on the Amazon Echo, with skills for smart home control, looking up weather and restaurants and much more. All of this is built into the 55-inch Toshiba 4K TV, which sells for an affordable sub-$500 price.
The switch from last year’s Westinghouse models to Toshiba bring all sorts of improvements, like improved display quality, HDR support and a more refined user experience, but it’s held back by mediocre picture quality and middling audio. Edge-lit backlighting and limited HDR support just drive home the most frustrating thing about most of Amazon’s TV’s – no matter how good Amazon’s Fire TV is as a smart TV platform, the TV also has to stand on its own merits.
In our tests, the Toshiba Fire TV had problems with unwanted haloing, due to the backlighting, but did well with detail and clarity. Color accuracy wasn’t fantastic, with a Delta-E rating of 5.05 (closer to 0 is better), and there were frequent issues with banding when smooth color gradients should be seen. Brightness isn’t bad for a budget-friendly TV, measuring 358 nits, but it’s not fantastic.

Walmart shoppers will want to pay attention to the Onn 50-inch 4K Roku TV, one of the least expensive 4K smart TVs on the market. Packed with Roku’s user-friendly smart TV platform on a large screen for a ridiculously low price, it's a great basic model for those on a shoe-string budget. It's especially attractive if you're looking for an affordable way to upgrade from a 1080p set or want to make the move from a dumb TV to a smart TV, complete with Roku's rich assortment of apps and services.
But if picture or audio performance matters to you, you might be better off spending a bit more for a different TV. The picture quality had noticeable issues with brightness, contrast and color reproduction, and we were disappointed by the set's weak speakers. Even among the most affordable TVs, there are models that offer better bang for the buck.

The TCL 3 Series 32-inch 32S327 Roku TV is a small set that's soft on your wallet. For $170, and often less, it offers both full Roku access and a smart home device that cooperates with your Alexa or Google Assistant ecosystems. While the set doesn’t have a microphone for fielding queries, you could say “Hey Alexa, show me rom-coms” near one of the best Alexa speakers and receive a selection of movies across Roku channels.
Though the 325327's performance is far from premium, the 1920 x 1080p resolution satisfies for the screen's size. And it's even better than the Vizio D-series for gaming, with a lag time of 12.3 milliseconds.
