'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.

Best TV deals not at Amazon

Target, Walmart, and other retailers are running competing sales following Amazon's Prime Early Access Sale. ZDNET is keeping an eye on those sales, and we'll include the top TV deals from them, too.

How did we choose these Amazon Prime Early Access Sale deals?

ZDNET will only recommend deals we want to buy, need, or would recommend. We search for deals that are at least 15% off (but the higher, the better). We check for products that are rarely on sale and use price comparison tools to determine the value of a deal.

In addition to our meticulous price-checking research, if we haven't personally tested it, we analyze real customer reviews to discern what matters to those who already use these TVs and streaming devices. If we've tested it, we'll be sure to provide our own valuable insight to these products. Our goal is to deliver the most accurate information, so you can shop smarter and save some cash.
