Amazon’s Prime Early Access Event is ending in a matter of hours. It’s the retailer’s October version of Prime Day, and there’s still plenty to save on — like 4K TVs.
Displays from brands like Sony, LG, Samsung, and Hisense are down to some of their lowest prices of the year, including entry-level and high-end models. TVs with built-in support for Amazon’s Fire TV platform are also seeing discounts.
To help you snag a new TV for a low price, we rounded up all of the best Prime Early Access TV deals below. You might want to act fast, though: the sale ends October 12.
Sony’s 2022 4K OLED model offers impressive picture accuracy, an infinite contrast ratio, the latest features for gaming consoles like the PlayStation 5, and comes with Android TV built-in. The $600 discount for the Prime Early Access Sale is one of the best prices we’ve seen.
LG’s G2 OLED is one of the best TVs you can buy right now, period. The display uses an Evo panel to produce higher brightness than a typical OLED, and the results are spectacular. When it comes to image performance, it really doesn’t get much better than this. $1,700 is an all-time low deal price for this model.
Though this is last year’s model, the C1 OLED remains an excellent TV, especially when it’s on sale. The 2022 C2 and G2 models do offer some improvements in brightness, but for a deal price of $1,500, you’d be hard pressed to find a better 65-inch TV for the money.
Samsung’s first 4K OLED TV is also one of the very first OLED displays to feature quantum dots. This technology allows the TV to produce a slightly brighter and wider range of colors than a traditional OLED. The results are stunning in person, giving LG’s G2 tough competition when it comes to the best high-end TV you can buy. It’s on sale now for $2,000, which matches its all-time low.
Samsung’s Frame TV is a favorite among buyers who want a display that can double as a subtle design piece in their living room. As its name implies, the TV is built to look like a frame hanging on your wall. A special Art Mode lets you show off paintings and other images on the TV when it’s off. This $1,600 deal price is a new all-time low for the 2022 65-inch model.
This 75-inch Samsung Neo QLED is an excellent high-end alternative for buyers who don’t want an OLED TV. The QN90B is brighter than an OLED and although it can’t deliver pixel-perfect contrast, it comes pretty close. This is an all-time low price for the 75-inch screen size.
This Insignia 4K display is a standard entry-level smart TV. It’s no frills when it comes to picture quality, but it features the Fire TV OS built-in for easy access to popular streaming apps. This isn’t a set you’ll want to build a home theater around, but it gets the job done for casual viewing, especially in a bedroom. This $250 deal price is just $10 more than the all-time low of $240 we saw over the summer.
This 50-inch 4K display from Hisense has Amazon’s Fire TV platform built-in for easy access to tons of popular streaming apps. It also boasts advanced picture quality features that we don’t always see in TVs in this price range and size, including wide color support, up to 600 nits of brightness, and local dimming. At a deal price of $450, this is an excellent option for buyers who want a smaller TV that doesn’t sacrifice image performance.
The 48-inch A1 was LG’s entry-level OLED model for 2021, and it’s still an excellent option for buyers who want the picture performance benefits of an OLED in a smaller screen size. The A1 is missing gaming-centric features, like a 120Hz refresh rate and HDMI 2.1 ports, that are found on LG’s more expensive OLEDs, but it delivers gorgeous contrast and colors. This $647 deal price is the lowest we’ve ever seen for this model.
Amazon’s Prime Early Access Sale is a new shopping event aimed to give Prime members exclusive “early” access to holiday deals, hence the name. It’s basically a second Prime Day. The members-only deals event began on October 11 and runs through Wednesday, October 12.
Similar to Prime Day, the Amazon Prime Early Access Sale is exclusive to Prime members. Amazon Prime costs $15 a month or $139 per year; a 30-day trial is available to new members.
Deal events like Prime Early Access are generally the best times of year to purchase a new TV. Black Friday and Cyber Monday traditionally offer the biggest discounts, but we’re seeing some incredible all-time low prices on several TVs for Prime Early Access.
Basically, if you see a display you want on sale right now for a good price, we recommend jumping on it. But if you miss any big deals, it’s likely that similar discounts will pop up again on Black Friday.
TVs vary wildly in price depending on the performance level and size you choose.
Generally speaking, if you’re in the market for an entry-level TV for casual viewing you should spend no more than $500. Though they lack advanced picture features, you can find budget-friendly 4K smart TVs as big as 65 inches for under $500, and smaller models for as little as $100.
If you’re in the market for a mid-range TV, however, with more advanced contrast and color features, you should aim to spend between $550 and $1,200. There are several 55- and 65-inch displays in this price range from brands like TCL, Vizio, and Hisense that deliver solid high dynamic range (HDR) performance with local dimming and quantum dots.
On the high-end, buyers who want the best image performance and fanciest design features should expect to pay between $1,500 and $2,500 for a 65-inch display. In this price range, you can find flagship sets from brands like Sony, LG, and Samsung, including models with OLED panels for pixel-level contrast and wide viewing angles.
