TVs are big-ticket items that many people look out for on Amazon Prime Day, and they're also some of the first items to sell out. However, the world of TVs is vast and it's not always easy to figure out which model is best for your needs or if that discount you're seeing is actually a good one. We at Engadget filtered through the Amazon Prime Day TV deals and picked out the best ones, and luckily there are options for both those who want a high-end set and those who want a more modest replacement for their aging TV. And many of those deals are available at other retailers like Best Buy, so you don't have to be a Prime member to grab a new TV for less. Here are the best TV and home entertainment deals you can get for Amazon Prime Day 2021.
