The TV everyone really wants this year is the LG C2 OLED – it scored a perfect 5 out of 5 here on Tom’s Guide, and it holds the top spot on our list of the best TVs.
Thanks to an early Black Friday TV deal, you can snag $500 off the 55-inch version of the C2 OLED, $200 off the 65-inch or $300 off of the 77-inch version before Black Friday. These prices might drop even further in the coming weeks, but they’re already significantly cheaper than the MSRP these TVs launched at a few months ago.
So why the hype around it? The LG C2 OLED has incredible picture quality, with a super-wide range of colors and deep, rich blacks. Sound is pretty good too, especially thanks to the TV having Dolby Atmos support. (And the sound is even more impressive when you consider the fact that the speakers are packed into a TV that’s only 1.8 inches thick.)
As well as being the best TV in general, the LG C2 OLED is also our best gaming TV. Lag time is almost non-existent. There’s a 120Hz refresh rate and four HDMI 2.1 ports. No matter what you’re playing, this TV won’t let you down.
If you’ve been waiting for an attention-grabbing 75-inch 4K TV that won’t break the bank, Black Friday TV deals don’t get much better than this. While we say the bigger the better, the whole Hisense A6 series is on sale at Best Buy, so you can also buy a cheap TV for a smaller room with the current discounts.
What’s so good about this model in particular? Hisense’s A6 series of TVs promises sharp picture quality, enhanced performance and dedicated presets like Filmmaker Mode and Game Mode Plus. Game Mode Plus leverages variable refresh rate and automatic low latency for next-gen gaming, while Filmmaker Mode ditches the annoying motion smoothing most TVs automatically apply.
What’s more, you’ll have access to all the best streaming services (including Disney+, HBO Max, Hulu, Netflix, Prime Video, and more) thanks to the Google TV OS, plus you’ll be able to control your TV hands-free via Google Assistant. This TV packs four HDMI ports and Bluetooth connectivity too, allowing you to hook up game consoles, sound bars, headphones and more at the same time.
I feel like this is the deal everyone’s heard about now, but I just have to keep reminding people that there’s an OLED TV for under $600. That’s never happened before, so it’s a pretty huge deal.
In our LG A2 OLED review, we said it delivered outstanding picture quality with wide viewing angles, perfect blacks and very good color reproduction for the price. You also get above-average sound quality and low input lag. We also really like the webOS platform LG uses to power its smart TVs. It’s slick, responsive and easy to use.
There are some drawbacks to the LG A2 OLED, including a 60Hz refresh rate (120Hz is better), and HDMI 2.0 ports instead of the newer HDMI 2.1. But unless you’re a gamer you likely won’t care too much.
Mid-range and budget models are great for folks who want to save money and don’t mind a few compromises in picture quality. But high-end models like Samsung’s Q90 series or LG’s C2 OLED? Those are where you get great picture peformance.
Right now, the Samsung 4K QLED 65-inch Q90T TV is on sale for $1,099 at Amazon (opens in new tab)(opens in new tab). That’s a huge $998 drop on its MSRP of $2,097, and it is the lowest price ever for this set that was, for a time, the best TV you could buy.
In our Samsung Q90 QLED TV review (which is very close to the Q90T model), we said that it is the strongest OLED alternative we have ever seen. This is not the latest QLED TV model by Samsung, but it still brings excellent picture quality with bright colors and deep blacks and is a great value at this Black Friday deal price.
The TV has a relatively slim profile and packs in 4K upscaling technology. An adaptive picture feature can adjust the brightness according to the light in the room, while object tracking sound leverages the two top and two bottom built-in TV speakers tp adjust the sound to follow the action.
It’s not the newest model from Samsung, but at this price, you’re still getting amazing performance for just over a grand.
If you’re in the market for a mid-range 65-inch 4K TV under $300, the TCL 65-inch 4-series 4K UHD Smart Roku TV is on sale for $228 at Walmart (opens in new tab)(opens in new tab). That’s a really low price for a 65-inch 4K UHD TV and while Walmart doesn’t list its original price, TCL’s website (opens in new tab)(opens in new tab) lists its MSRP as $799.
That makes this a savings of over $550 on this 4K TV. The deal is part of Walmart’s Deals for Days event, which means Walmart Plus members have access to it right away whereas non-members will get access starting at 7 p.m. ET today.
It’s kind of a bummer that Walmart’s locking this deal behind its Plus subscription, but in just a few hours it will be open for everyone.
Looking for a HUGE TV for Black Friday? Currently, you can get the LG 86-inch 4K TV on sale for $999 at Best Buy. That’s $203 off and the cheapest 85- or 86-inch TV I’ve ever seen. Amazon had this Black Friday TV deal as well but it’s out of stock there, so we would hurry.
We haven’t reviewed this TV, but at least on paper it seems to have all the right components of a fantastic TV. For starters, it’s part of LG’s 2022 lineup. It features LG’s a5 Gen 5 AI CPU, a 120Hz refresh rate, HDR10/HLG support, and four HDMI ports — two of them are HDMI 2.1 ports.
To be fair, this TV has been on sale before, but only recently has it dropped as low as $996, which is an amazing price for this TV and for a TV this big.
