'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.

With summer well underway and July 4th weekend arriving, retailers like Amazon, Best Buy, and Walmart are offering huge discounts on TVs from Samsung, Sony, LG, and more. You can save up to $3,000 on a new QLED, OLED, or outdoor TV to help transform both your indoor and outdoor spaces into the ultimate entertainment hub. I've gathered a list of the absolute best deals you can find on TVs to help you find the best discount as well as the best TV for your budget.

What is the best TV?

I chose the Samsung S95D as my pick for the best TV you can buy. Not only does it feature an updated OLED panel to bring it up to par with models from Sony and LG, it also has an anti-reflective coating to help improve visibility in harsh lighting as well as a base refresh rate of 120Hz for smoother motion; and console gamers can bump that up to 144Hz for PC or competitive console gaming. You'll also get virtual surround sound via Dolby Atmos and Samsung's Object Tracking Sound+ technology for room-filling audio that follows the on-screen action.
