'ZDNET Recommends': What exactly does it mean?

ZDNET's recommendations are based on many hours of testing, research, and comparison shopping. We gather data from the best available sources, including vendor and retailer listings as well as other relevant and independent reviews sites. And we pore over customer reviews to find out what matters to real people who already own and use the products and services we’re assessing.

When you click through from our site to a retailer and buy a product or service, we may earn affiliate commissions. This helps support our work, but does not affect what we cover or how, and it does not affect the price you pay. Neither ZDNET nor the author are compensated for these independent reviews. Indeed, we follow strict guidelines that ensure our editorial content is never influenced by advertisers.

ZDNET's editorial team writes on behalf of you, our reader. Our goal is to deliver the most accurate information and the most knowledgeable advice possible in order to help you make smarter buying decisions on tech gear and a wide array of products and services. Our editors thoroughly review and fact-check every article to ensure that our content meets the highest standards. If we have made an error or published misleading information, we will correct or clarify the article. If you see inaccuracies in our content, please report the mistake via this form.

Samsung 85-inch TU690T LED 4K UHD Smart Tizen TV

There's nothing better than streaming your favorite sports event in front of a large TV, whether you're a football fan, pickleball enthusiast, or otherwise. It isn't long before the big game appears on our screens, so if you want to upgrade your existing home entertainment setup in time, there's a great deal at Best Buy you shouldn't miss. 

The Samsung 85-inch smart TV would typically set you back $1,400. However, the US retailer has discounted the model by $400 for a limited time, so you can make the purchase -- while stocks last -- for just under $1000

The Samsung 85-inch smart TV is a solid option if you want to invest in a future-proof model. Not only are you provided a massive 85 inches of display space, but the TV offers 4K Crystal UHD resolution (2160p) and 4K UHD Upscaling -- which will automatically bump up the resolution of content, where possible. 

Furthermore, Samsung has implemented the Tizen operating system and compatibility with Google Assistant, Amazon Alexa, and Apple AirPlay 2. The TV comes with a stand and remote.

There are two other TVs of note in Best Buy's Sale. If this TV is a little more than you'd like to spend, you can pick up a Westinghouse 55-inch 4K UHD smart TV for $270 -- saving you $170 off the typical price tag.

Alternatively, if you are keen to pick up a more impressive smart TV, you can save $2000 on the high-end Samsung 85-inch Neo QLED 8K smart Tizen TV, now reduced to just under $5000. This model will deliver a beautiful, high quality picture -- and we can confirm after testing it ourselves.
