If you're on the hunt for a cheap TV this Amazon Prime Day, you've come to the right place. Our main TV deals page has a whole host of bargains, but here we're focusing on TVs that, thanks to big discounts, you can get for less than £500.
Of course, it's not hard to buy a TV for under £500. There are loads of them about. But it is hard to buy a really good TV for that sort of money, and that's where we come in. All of the TVs you see below are either specific models we've tested and rate, smaller or larger versions of TVs we like, or models that our experts have researched and that we believe will deliver the goods.
These aren't simply cheap TVs. They're really good TVs available with excellent discounts. That makes them bargain TVs.
Hisense 43A6GTUK 43-inch LCD TV
£429 £249 at Amazon (save £180)
The 2021 43A6GTUK is another lesson from Hisense in how you can no longer judge a TV by its price point. Yes, there are weaknesses – unhelpful presets and slightly desaturated colours, for example – but it also offers more features and delivers a much greater level of picture and sound consistency than should be possible at this price.

TCL 50RP620K 50-inch Roku TV
£399 £279 at Currys (save £140)
The 55-inch version of this TCL Roku TV is sadly no longer available, but we've no reason to think that this 50-inch model won't be just as good. The superb smart platform is the attention-grabber, but it's the surprisingly solid picture performance that makes this such a great buy, particularly with this discount.

Samsung UE50AU7110 2021 50-inch TV
£579 £359 at PRC Direct (save £220)
The 43-inch AU7100 has been our favourite cheap TV for ages, and while we haven't tested this larger AU7110, we've no reason to think that it won't be just as good. The AU7100 boasted a surprisingly mature and consistent picture performance and the full, excellent Samsung smart platform, which gives access to more or less every streaming service under the sun. All of which bodes well for this model. Read the full Samsung AU7100 review.
Amazon Fire TV Omni QLED 55 inches
£750 £450 at Amazon (save £300)
While we haven't reviewed this 55-inch version, we were pleasantly surprised by the 65-inch Omni QLED, even at its original price. We expect the 55-inch model to be just as good and therefore just as much of a bargain, with consistent, balanced picture quality, support for all HDR formats, surprisingly thorough gaming specs and, of course, the app-packed Fire OS smart platform.
