Prime Day, Amazon's annual shopping event, is nearly here, and that means deals galore for all types of products and services. This is the perfect time of year to buy a new TV with plenty of manufacturers offering massive discounts on models of all different sizes, resolutions, and price ranges. Whether you're replacing your main TV or shopping for your guest room, there are always plenty of Prime Day TV deals to choose from.

I bought my TV (a 55-inch 4K smart TV from Samsung) on Prime Day a few years back, and got it for hundreds less than its usual going rate at the time. I probably wouldn't have impulse-bought it at full price, but I still use it every single day without a hitch. If you've even considered a new TV recently, now's the time to act on it.

This 43-inch TV is now $110 off for Prime members and comes with Amazon's Fire TV software, allowing you to stream from services like Prime Video, Disney+, Netflix, and Hulu. This is a 2020 model that's also available in 50-inch and 55-inch sizes.

Depending on the size and resolution you're after, you can generally find a Prime Day TV deal for as cheap as $100. Of course, larger, sharper TVs will cost you quite a bit more, but even those prices are lower than usual, and could be enough to push you over the edge.

Though Prime Day isn't live just yet, we do know of an excellent TV deal that's available before the big event! The Hisense H8 Quantum Android Smart TV is now discounted by over $110 off its regular price for a limited time. Along with Dolby Vision HDR, this TV is equipped with the Hi-View chipset to boost the picture quality, Motion Rate 240 to ensure that your movies and games are fluid, while sporting a bezel-less design.

Other Great TV Deals

As great as Hisense's 50-inch H8 Quantum TV is, a 50-inch TV isn't the right fit for everybody. You might need something a bit larger or smaller, or you might just be trying to reach a lower price point. Whatever the case, there are plenty of other deals to choose from.

A huge part of deciding on a smart TV is, well, how huge of a TV you want. The bigger the TV, the more it'll likely cost you, and the higher the chance you'll run into space constraint issues with your home setup. You might even need to buy a new entertainment center if you get an especially big TV.

Of course, size isn't the only factor. You'll also need to consider whether a great 4K TV is really a necessity; after all, how much 4K content do you really consume? That answer may soon change if you plan on picking up one of the upcoming next-gen gaming consoles, both of which put a heavy emphasis on 4K gaming, but it's a question worth asking yourself either way. It's also worth noting that streaming services like Netflix are continuing to expand their libraries of 4K content.

Speaking of gaming consoles, you should think about how many HDMI ports you might — which really means you should think about how many devices you plan on connecting to your TV at once. My general philosophy with HDMI ports tends to be "the more, the merrier," since having three or four ports allows you to instantly switch between inputs without having to get up and rearrange your wiring, but if you only have one console or just want to use a Chromecast on occasion, this may not be such a big deal to you.

Prime Day TV Deals I'm most excited about in 2021

A few years ago I took advantage of a Prime Day TV deal on a 55-inch TV that's still going strong, but I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought about sizing up to a 65-inch model. I'm comfortable with Samsung's smart TV software and color profiles, and I want a TV with Alexa built-in, so the Samsung QN65Q60AAFXZA is certainly tempting. It features newer HDR and color processing, and I think it nicely balances its price against its features, size, and resolution.

On the other hand, I've been looking at new apartments lately, and having a different layout might leave enough room to go with an even larger 75-inch TV, and Samsung's QLED QN90A Series 4K Smart TV looks extremely compelling. It has an anti-glare coating for better visibility in daylight, and features four HDMI ports, which I could quickly occupy with my Xbox Series X, PS5, and Nintendo Switch. It's still pretty pricey at nearly $3000, but that's why I'm praying for an excellent Prime Day deal.

What were the best Prime Day TV deals in 2020?

TV deals are never hard to find during events like Prime Day, so last year's deals looked fairly similar to the current lineup. LG took half off its Nano 8 Series 55-inch 4K Smart NanoCell TV, and the 32-inch Frame by Samsung finally reached below $500. There were also deals on streaming sticks like the Fire TV Stick 4K, though those sales haven't reemerged just yet.

A lot of stellar offers are only available for a few hours or even minutes as part of Amazon's Lightning Deals program. Lightning Deals are, as the name implies, quick to come and go, and there's a good chance we'll see plenty of similarly great deals this year. If none of the other deals here have won you over, that'll be the section to keep an eye on throughout the next couple of days.
