The arrival of Amazon Prime Day 2021 has us noticing a trend that's more apparent than ever. 4K smart TVs, once the luxurious crown jewel of the market, are becoming ever more affordable with each passing year.
But why is that, exactly? For starters, the most obvious point to be made is that the high-end, most technologically advanced TVs are replaced year after year. Take the Hisense U80G ULED 8K TV, which achieves image quality well beyond even high-end 4K TVs.
As 8K becomes more common throughout this year and the next, their status as the new enthusiast's choice will inevitably push 4K smart TVs as the more affordable option. This is evident in the following LG Nanocell TVs, which are currently available at the lowest price we've ever seen.

What makes these deals so good?
It's worth stressing that LG's NanoCell range are strictly mid-range 4K TVs. That means they don't match the image quality or feature set found in the company more advanced OLED or Mini LED screens, such as the LG CX OLED – understandably much more expensive than what we're seeing with the discounted LG NanoCell TVs above.
So if LG NanoCell TVs aren't the best available, why even bother? Well, the fact that they're part of the mid-range market by no means makes them a bad choice. Far from it, as LG's patented NanoCell technology allows the TVs to offer vivid color depth, resulting in a gorgeous 4K picture for an LCD screen with its limitations.
What's arguably more impressive, though, is the price of these TVs given the size. As shown above, both the 55 and 65-inch variants are pretty nicely discounted, but their retail prices aren't outrageous, either.
Much like HD before it, 4K's influence as a buzzword is waning year on year. Every modern TV past the 55-inch threshold will feature 4K resolution to make the most of the size. Even most above 40 inches will likely boast 4K, too. As such, 4K is the standard now, and it's already very hard to find HD TVs that aren't limited to a 24-inch or 32-inch size.
With 4K a given with most TVs, then, the next big selling points become size and specs. The 55-inch LG NanoCell offers a borderline cinematic experience, but the much larger 65-inch model could be ideal for home theater use.
The crux of what makes these deals so good, then, is that you're getting large, mid-range 4K TVs at a semi-affordable price point, with the latest Prime Day deal essentially offering a double-dip saving.
