The LG 65SM8100 is now on sale, for a fraction of its original price, thanks to these Amazon Prime Day deals.

This LCD TV is now retailing for just $556.99, which is a startlingly good price for what's on offer. While you can find the 65SM8100 at a few prices around the web – sometimes for over twice this deal price – the closest we could find is $869 at Best Buy, so it seems like a good deal regardless.

This 65-inch 4K TV doesn't have all the bells and whistles of LG's OLED TVs, such as the LG CX, but you're not getting a low-spec model either. The LG 65SM8100 uses a backlight with local dimming that should ensure relatively consistent brightness, compared to the edge-lighting used by cheaper (and worse) LCD TVs.

OLED TVs are self-emissive, of course, meaning that individual pixels emit their own light – but for this price, a backlight is still pretty good going.

LG 65-inch 4K TV (2019): $699.99 on Amazon

The LG SM8100 is a mid-spec 4K TV with an LCD panel, 4K resolution, and local dimming instead of the edge-lighting used by cheaper sets.

This isn't a set we've reviewed, but LG has a good reputation for sets for all kinds of calibre, even for LCD screens. You will be getting 4K resolution, HDR support, wide viewing angle technology (for off-axis viewing), and an "ultra-slim Nano bezel" for an expansive-looking screen.

Let's not forget LG's webOS smart TV platform, either, which is one of the best on the market – with stylish and well-organized app icons and a great universal search function.
