According to Honey, the TV is at the lowest price it’s been on Best Buy in the past three months.
Sony 55-Inch 4K UHD LED Android Smart TV
Gordon previously noted that upgrading to a 55-inch TV can “give you a room-filling picture size.” And this 55-inch LED model from Sony features the brand’s Triluminos technology, which it claims uses an “extensive color palette and precise gradation” to produce high-quality picture displays. At Walmart, it has a 4.5-star average rating from more than 800 reviews, and 87 percent of customers said they would recommend it.

With a 4.6-star average rating from nearly 900 reviews at Best Buy, this 55-inch LED 4K smart TV from Toshiba is a highly rated and relatively affordable pick.

According to Gordon, LG’s top-end TV models are “some of the absolute best TVs you can buy today.” This 65-inch model is one of the brand’s OLED (organic light-emitting diode) TVs, which Gordon noted has a more detailed picture than most LCD displays. This LG TV boasts a 4.8-star average rating from more than 4,000 Amazon reviews, and it’s currently marked down to its lowest price in the last three months, according to Honey.
