'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.


Get Insignia's 50-inch LED 4K Fire TV for less than $250 today

Catch your favorite shows from a large screen featuring 4k imaging, now less than $250.
Written by Rebecca Isaacs, Staff Writer

Want a really big TV for your dorm room but don't want to pay the really big price tag for it? Take a look at the Insignia 50-inch Class F30 Series LED 4K UHD smart Fire TV. Right now, it's on sale for only $239 for savings of $160.

Not only does it bring 50 inches of 4K UHD straight into your dorm room, but it brings with it Amazon's signature Fire TV home screen, which is easy to navigate and find all your favorite shows on it. The accompanying remote carries fast-click buttons to your favorite streamers like Netflix, Prime Video, and Disney+.  If you happen to lose the remote, you'll have access to Alexa-enabled voice control to make streaming your shows easy and fast.

Another nice feature is that because it's connected to Alexa, you can use the TV to order pizza when you're hanging out with friends in the dorm room. There are also three HDMI ports, so if you want to game on your Xbox or PlayStation, you can hook the TV up for late-night gaming sessions. 

This price drop is a part of Amazon's daily deals, so if you feel this is the right TV for you, you will want to pick it up today. We cannot guarantee that the price will be for $239 tomorrow.

Otherwise, if you want to shop around for other options, be sure to check out our curated list of Best Buy TV deals, or even our best 32-inch TV deals.
