'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.

Eyeing a new 48-inch smart TV? You can stop searching now, because we found the best deal of the month on an LG OLED model. Originally $1,999, the LG OLED A1 Series 4K HDR smart TV is on sale for $697, which is the lowest price we've seen on this model.

The LG 48-inch comes with signature OLED technology, so every single one of the TV's millions of pixels are self lit for a truly beautiful image on-screen. Coupled with perfect black and 100% color fidelity, you'll get a life-like picture.

Plus, the TV features Dolby Vision IQ, which adjusts your TV's picture to the ambient settings. Watching a dark horror flick? You'll see every detail on the monster coming out of the shadows. Or if you're watching the latest rom-com, it will adjust to the bright surroundings to make sure you see every single detail.

With a 60Hz refresh rate, this TV helps you enjoy gaming without worrying about ghosting or lagging, too. It also uses a powerful α7 Gen4 AI Processor to keep your games at their full potential on the display. 

This LG model is currently 65% off, and we don't know how long this will last. Be sure to pick it up today if you're looking for a great OLED model. If you want to see more options, be sure to check out our picks for best TVs.
