Every year, our A.V. team gets worked up over what kind of great deals we'll find on TVs, soundbars, headphones and so on for Amazon's huge two-day savings event—and Prime Day 2021 is no exception. More often than not, while there are some great deals, there are only a few that are worth shouting about. This is one of those shoutable ones: Sony's incredible 65-inch A8H OLED TV, normally $2,500, is more than $700 off.

In fact, both the 55- and 65-inch A8H OLED sizes are discounted, but if you're going to spend over $1,000 anyway, we recommend ponying up for the larger version. When we reviewed the 65-inch A8H, we were expecting greatness (OLED TVs tend to top our rankings for the best TVs you can buy), but this turned out to be one of the best TVs of 2021.
My fellow TV expert and colleague Michael Desjardin was truly impressed by the performance on display here: perfect black levels, rich color production and good peak brightness for an OLED (more than 700 nits, which is plenty bright for most rooms). Both A8H OLED TV sizes deliver four HDMI inputs (with eARC compatibility), smooth motion for gaming and sports (though you're not getting HDMI 2.1, which is a definite drawback) and Sony's excellent design aesthetic and built-in Android smart platform.
The Sony A8H OLED isn't perfect, but it's much closer to perfection than a lot of the TVs we'll see throughout the year. Unless you've got an especially bright room or absolutely need HDMI 2.1 features, the A8H delivers design, details, and performance on a silver platter. This is probably one of the lowest prices we'll see on this TV until the holidays, so if your summer could use a little OLED action, now's your chance.
