Amazon has once again discounted the TCL 40-inch 1080p Roku Smart TV, bringing the price down to $199. That is about $90 off of its regular price, and makes this a really good deal for anyone looking for a secondary TV in their home.
The TCL 40-inch 1080p Roku Smart TV - the 40S305 model - is a great TV to pick up. While this is a 1080p TV, it is still a great pickup. This is because most of the content that you'll be watching on the TV is going to be in 1080p or even 720p. So there's still no need to get a 4K TV just yet, and if you want to save some extra cash, a 1080p TV is a great option. This TV does have Roku included, so that you're going to have a slew of apps and games included, out-of-the-box. This includes YouTube, Google Play Movies & TV, Netflix, Hulu, HBO GO and so much more. There are even some great streaming TV services available, like Sling TV and DIRECTV NOW. As far as ports go, this TV has plenty of them to choose from. There are three HDMI ports, a USB ports, RF port, composite port, a component port and an Ethernet port. This means that you'll still have plenty of HDMI inputs for your other peripherals like a PlayStation 4 or another console.
