'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.

If you're in the market for a new, big-screen TV, the 98-inch TCL S5 just dropped to $1,998 at Amazon, letting you save up to $2,000 on one of the largest TVs on the market. Along with a truly impressive screen size, the TCL S5 also offers other features to make your watch party the event of the season. With a $5,000 MSRP, this is a hefty savings on a massive TV. 

The LED panel gives you great 4K resolution as well as a 120Hz refresh rate for smoother motion. And with Dolby Vision IQ HDR support, you'll get enhanced detailing and contrast, so you'll never miss a second of action on the field or lose track of the ball during a pass. The S5 also uses DTS Virtual:X audio to create virtual 3D sound for a more immersive experience. 

With Bluetooth connectivity as well as 3 HDMI inputs, you can set up a custom home audio system for a true surround sound experience, or you can share highlight videos and photos from your mobile devices with built-in Chromecast. And if you've set up a smart home network, you can connect the S5 to Alexa or Hey Google for hands-free controls.

I've reviewed TCL TVs for ZDNET in the past, and have been impressed by how well-rounded they are for a price that's usually easier on the wallet than competitors like Samsung and LG. ZDNET's Max Buondonno tested out this 98-inch model, and said "I can see this TV making a lot of sense for an immersive entertainment setup," especially considering the low price.
