It’s also a smart TV that’s on the Amazon Fire TV platform, which not only grants access to your favorite streaming services, but also enables voice commands through Amazon’s Alexa and the Alexa Voice Remote.

Toshiba 50-inch C350 Series 4K TV — $270, was $430

It also comes with Google Assistant to let you use your voice to search for content and control playback, but it will work with smart home devices that operate with Amazon’s Alexa.

The TCL 5-Series QLED 4K TV is one of the cheapest QLED TV deals that you can shop today. The difference between QLED and OLED TVs can clearly be seen on its 50-inch display, as QLED technology delivers much higher brightness, with sharp details and vivid colors from its 4K Ultra HD resolution. It also runs on the Google TV platform, which is compatible with all of the top streaming services, and can make recommendations depending on your preferences. The 4K TV also offers Variable Refresh Rate, which makes adjustments depending on what you’re watching.

First, it comes with a larger 65-inch display, but still with 4K Ultra HD resolution and High Dynamic Range. Second, instead of Google TV, it’s powered by the Roku platform, which provides the same benefits like access to all of your favorite streaming services, but though an interface with a customizable home screen. You can also use the free Roku mobile app as a second remote, for searching for content, and for private listening.

A saving of $800, you're probably too busy thinking 'huh, laser TV?' and that's ok because we're here to explain all. If you're looking for an awesome TV, read on while we guide you through everything you need to know.

Why you should buy the Hisense 120-inch L9 Series TriChroma Laser TV
On your hunt for a new TV, you've probably read up on QLED and OLED technology, but what about laser TVs? A laser TV is essentially a laser-powered ultra short throw (UST) projector. LG released its own twin-laser-based projector TV back in 2019 and the technology has improved a ton since. And before we go deeper -- no, you don't have to worry about the lasers cutting a hole through your wall -- that's not how these work. Also, although the lasers are very bright, a proximity sensor will keep you safe from any potential (but unlikely) issues.
