Black Friday and Cyber Monday are great opportunities to get the 4K TV of your dreams for less than usual. However, these shopping days cap off an amazing year to get a fantastic TV for much less than its list price. The market in 2022 has been kind, whether you want a low-end selection that includes Roku, Fire TV, or Google TV streaming software, or one that offers tons of features on top of top-notch picture quality.
No matter what your needs are, we think you’ll be happy with the deals we’ve found from brands like TCL, Insignia and LG, with more on the way soon.
If you want the most TV for your money, 65-inch C350 Fire TV from Toshiba with Amazon’s streaming guts built in, it’s $429.99 at Amazon. It won’t deliver the comparable contrast and brightness you’ll find in more expensive models, but it might deliver everything you want. This 2021 model has thin bezels and its panel supports Dolby Vision and HDR10 for cinematic and realistic picture quality. In addition, it has a practical Alexa-based remote control into which you can bark voice commands.
Another recommendation is constantly out of stock and out of stock at Best Buy, but worth keeping an eye out for during Black Friday. TCL 55-inch 5-Series S546 it’s only $200 — no wonder it’s selling out. Even without this huge price cut, Best Buy’s $499 price tag for the 65-inch version is still pretty great. This 4K TV also has a QLED panel like the Insignia above, but excels with Google TV software and support for HDR10 Plus and Dolby Vision HDR standards. It has a 60Hz panel, so while it’s great for movies and TV shows, it doesn’t provide the fast refresh rates to unlock the graphics potential of the PS5 or Xbox Series X (if that’s important to you).
Next up is trustworthy 55-inch TCL 6-Series TV. The Verge Deals The team has proudly placed many of these TVs in homes, and there are many reasons why this could be right for you. It’s hard to get more bang for your buck since it’s only $599.99 at Best Buy. It has many of the key features many gamers look for in a TV, namely HDMI 2.1 ports that can deliver 4K resolution at up to 120Hz, and a Mini LED panel that makes games – and everything else – look better than your average QLED or LED TV . .

Normally there would be two or three more TVs, which I just wrote, and OLED, but as I said above, the market has been kind to all TV buyers. At Best Buy, you can get a 48-in LG A2 OLED TV for only $570. It might be a bit of a splurge if you’re hoping to go big this year, but it might be worth the trade-off to get unbeatable image quality for under $600. Now the usual disclaimer about the A-series OLED: it lacks some of the high-end features we really like on the C2; it has a 60Hz refresh rate compared to twice that in the C2, no HDMI 2.1 ports, and the C2 is brighter thanks to the Evo panel. Depending on the person, these omissions may be forgiven for the price.
Since I’ve mentioned it several times, I might as well tell you about the great prices that LG’s best-in-class 55-inch C2 OLED is sold for. It’s up to $1,300 at multiple retailers, and the price goes down a bit with size, as you might expect. LG makes this TV in 48-inch and 42-inch variants (as well as larger and more expensive ones), with the smallest being around $900. My colleague Chris Welch reviewed the C2 and you can see his thoughts here.
