This 2021 Insignia 4K UHD Fire TV might not have made it onto our list of the best TVs for this year, but it still boasts impressive specs that make it a highly competitive model and a solid deal. It runs Amazon's Fire TV OS, so you can instantly access all your favorite streaming content. It's equipped with an HDMI eARC port, so it's easy to run the audio through a soundbar or surround-sound system, and the Alexa voice remote allows for easy hands-free browsing. Note that in some locations you may have to pick this item up in store.
This 50-inch Pioneer TV boasts a pretty impressive array of features for less than $300. It's equipped with a 4K UHD display with HDR, as well as support for Dolby Vision and DTS Virtual-X Sound. It operates using Amazon's Fire TV OS, and even comes with an Alexa voice remote for hands-free navigation. Other features include an HDMI eARC, Apple AirPlay built in, and compatibility with VESA wall mounts.
The Fire TV 4 Series is definitely a basic 4K TV compared with the Omni Series above, but that doesn't mean it should be dismissed out of hand. It landed a spot on our best budget TV list, which means it has a lot to offer.
There are some trade-offs when you opt for a budget set, but it might still be worth it at the much lower price, especially while it's discounted by 36%. It lacks some higher-end specs like Dolby Vision and gaming features such as AMD FreeSync and doesn't have a built-in microphone, but this TV does deliver a brilliantly bright image, which makes it one of the best pictures on any entry-level model, and it's a great fit for those who are already using the Amazon ecosystem.
The TCL 3-Series is an ultracheap option for those who don't need a large or midsize screen. At less than $150, this is the only TV on our list that doesn't support a 4K picture, though at this size that's hardly necessary. It does, however, come with Roku built-in, so you can still stream all your favorite shows and movies. With 1080p resolution and three HDMI ports, this is a no-frills smart TV that gets you exactly what you pay for.

Vizio's V-Series made its way onto our best TVs list as a runner-up budget option thanks to its impressive picture and because it comes with Chromecast and Apple AirPlay built in, which plenty of other smart TVs do not. These allow you to stream, or even mirror, content from your phone or computer. It also boasts 4K UHD picture, and an IQ active processor that enhances the quality of any non-4K content. We liked the picture quality of the TCL above more, but the convenience of this model is tough to beat.
