The 7 Best-Selling TVs on Amazon under $300

Amazon's best-selling TV sets are a great place to start your search if you're not quite sure what you're looking for in a new TV. The best selling TVs are budget-friendly and range from just $100 to around $300. Just because the price is low, that doesn't mean the sizes are all small. These TVs range from the 24-inch to 50-inch screen sizes and should work well in bedrooms and living rooms alike.

A key feature in all of these TVs seems to be the addition of smart TV software. That means these TVs all come with ways of streaming videos online without needing to add an external, secondary device. The all-in-one nature of these smart TVs makes them extremely easy to connect and start watching, even for those who feel less technically savvy.
