'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.

Those that love the Apple ecosystem and want to expand it to include their streaming can partake in a great Apple deal right now, especially if you're still working on collecting your back-to-school shopping. The Apple TV 4K streaming kit is 33% off on Amazon, dropping the price by $50 to o $119.

The Apple TV 4K streaming kit can connect your TV to all of your other Apple devices. The 4K kit gives you a crisp, clear picture with Dolby Vision integrated into the software. The device comes with Apple's A12 Bionic chip to provide you with a speedy response no matter if you're streaming your favorite shows or just catching up on your games in Apple Arcade. And with 32GB of storage, you can download plenty of content and games.

You'll also get access to all of your favorite Apple apps, including Apple Music and Apple Fitness+. In addition to these great apps, you'll also be able to connect up to two Apple AirPods to the system, so you can stream and watch your favorite shows without waking up roommates in the dorm room or if you're just working from a small space at home with family members.

This is one of the best prices we've seen on this Apple device. The lowest price we've seen is $109 during Prime Day, but if you missed out on it, then this is still a great deal at $119. We recommend that you pick it up sooner rather than later because we don't know how long it will be discounted at this price.
