Even with a smaller budget, consumers are spoiled for choice within the TV market, and big name manufacturers have included the more price conscious amongst us in their newly released models. No one misses out, and everyone can still purchase high quality TVs, with all the latest tech.
We’ve tried and tested numerous TVs with a price of under $250, and here are our top choices
1) Samsung N5300 32″ 1080p Smart LED
Samsung Electronics UN32N5300AFXZA 32" 1080p Smart LED TV (2018), Black
1 used from $269.99
The N5300 from tech giants Samsung features a good build quality, and whilst the bezels aren’t the thinnest ever, this model still looks and feels well made and decent.
Performance wise, Samsung have done it again. A balanced grey uniformity and contrast ratio allows a rich deep black, even in a dark room, and the brighter tones, even with the wide viewing angle, show no halo flare whatsoever.
The wealth of smart features, including numerous preinstalled apps, and a huge range available to download, makes this a good choice for a family TV.
2) Insignia 32’’ Smart HD TV – Fire TV Edition

With voice search and control from Alexa, multiple device input/output options and the ability to set your TV as your smart home hub, this is an easy TV to recommend.

All-New Toshiba 32LF221U21 32-inch Smart HD 720p TV - Fire TV Edition, Released 2021
