If you want a compact, no-frills smart TV that doesn't skimp on quality features, this 2-Series Fire TV is a good pick. You won't get 4K, but the 1080p HD still looks great, plus you get HDR10, HLG, and Dolby Digital Audio support alongside instant access to all of your favorite streaming services. 

The best part is that the Amazon's Memorial Day sale has dropped the price of the 40-inch smart TV to only $150. That's the cheapest that it's ever been!
