'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.


Roku TV deal: Get the TCL 43-inch 4K Roku smart TV for just $130

If you want a compact smart TV for a rock-bottom price, this deal is for you.

Target has now launched its three-day Target Deal Days sale, with hundreds -- if not thousands -- of great deals in tech to be taken advantage of. 

Among the deals we particularly like is a cheap smart TV, the TCL 43" 4k Smart Roku TV, which can be purchased for only $129 for a limited time. The typical retail price is $349, saving you $220, or 63% off the usual RRP. 

This smart TV could be a great option for a bedroom or dorm. The TV features a 43" 4k display (60 Hz refresh rate) and a mounting stand. The Roku streaming service is built-in, granting access to thousands of streaming channels, and is also compatible with other subscription services including Netflix, Hulu, and Disney+. Sure, it isn't the largest display on the market, but the TCL TV is still a bargain at $129. 

The Target Deal Days 2022 sale starts today, October 6, and will carry on until Saturday, October 8. The sale is described as three days of "early Black Friday deals," with discounts of up to 50% available on technology, furniture, kitchen appliances, toys, and clothing.  

Shoppers may also be awarded gift cards for their purchases. The sale is taking place in-store and online, and if customers use their Target RedCard, they can also take a further 5% off sales items. 

Target's sale event comes a few days before Amazon's Prime Early Access Sale, due to begin on October 11. While some deals are already available -- including cut-price Kindle e-readers -- you can expect discounts of up to 70% on Amazon devices, gadgets, TVs, and more.
