'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.
Amazon Prime Day is over, but other vendors still have a number of summer savings worth checking out, including a $500 discount on the Samsung Neo QLED 8K Smart TV.
The sale is what Samsung calls "Black Friday in July," a hat-tip to the upcoming week of sales in late November. For a limited time, the tech giant has a range of sales on TVs, smartphones, and home appliances.
Among the deals of note is the Samsung Neo, a 65" smart TV which will be future-proof for years to come. The 2022 model has an edge-to-edge bezel and 8K QLED Infinity Screen, powered by Quantum Mini LEDs & multi-exposure HDR capture designed to improve vibrancy and contrast. A dedicated processor manages picture upscaling.
If the display causes you strain in high-light environments, you can turn on an eye comfort mode to reduce blue light.
An interesting feature of this premium TV is object tracking, in which the inbuilt Dolby Atmos sound will focus on objects displayed on screen -- such as a moving car or train -- to enhance immersive sounds.
You can also enjoy discounts on different sizes, with the TV available in 65, 75, and 85-inch options.
A $500 discount is a good start, but the company is also happy to throw in a $799.99 Freestyle projector for free. The point-and-play 180-degree projector can be used to stream content from apps, films, or music playlists.
