'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.

Apparently, the cargo ships of 4K TVs have finally made their way into the US, and retailers like Target are here to dock some of the biggest discounts we've seen on flat-screens.
Hot off the press, one of the best deals available is this 70-inch Roku TV by Westinghouse, which can be picked up at your local Target store for just $385. It's no Sony or Samsung, but for a large-sized 4K panel that costs less than $400, this piece of hardware is a steal of a deal.

Here are the steps to claim this deal:
So, what's the deal with this TV?
On the surface, a lot of the specifications and features on this TV are nothing out of the ordinary: 4K UHD resolution, Smart Roku TV, voice-controllable via Alexa and Google Assistant. It also comes with four HDMI 2.0 ports and two slots for USB. Pretty good so far.
It's not often that a 70-inch flat-screen can be had for as little as $385, so there are bound to be some corners cut here and there. In the case of this Westinghouse unit, one of the compromises is the integration of screen-saver ads. They will appear on the screen as you browse applications and inputs, or when you've left the TV idle. You can also expect the picture quality from the LED panel to be less color accurate than that of LG's and Samsung's OLED.
But unless you're pixel peeping, the Westinghouse display should suffice for what it is.
If you can shoulder the compromises, then this 70-inch, 4K UHD, Smart Roku TV is exactly as advertised. And for a limited time, you can buy one for just $385.
