A lot of people go out on Black Friday looking for great deals on high-end TVs, many of which are heavily discounted from where they were priced not long before.
With Black Friday fast approaching, here are some of the best deals available on high-end TVs. Not all are necessarily marketed as Black Friday sales, but they are in place this week.
That TV, from 2021, is described by RTINGS as “a good overall TV… Due to its ADS panel, it’s great for watching TV shows or sports as it has wide viewing angles, and the image remains accurate when viewing from the side. It’s also good for gaming thanks to its quick response time, low input lag, and extra features like VRR support.”
Another Samsung TV, the 85-Inch Class Neo QLED QN90A Series, is also deeply discounted on Amazon, to $3,297.99, down from its listed price of $4,999.99. That TV is ranked by RTINGS as the best LED TV available currently on the market. The TV, from 2021, is ranked by the site as the 17th-best TV available on the market, but the best non-OLED model and the highest-ranking by Samsung.
Also discounted on Amazon is another top TV, the Sony A80J 77 Inch TV. The TV is priced at $2,998.00, down from its originally listed price of $3,499.99. That TV, from 2021, is ranked by RTINGS as the 9th-best TV available, and the site called it “excellent overall” and “fantastic for watching movies in dark rooms because it has a near-infinite contrast ratio that produces deep blacks.”
Amazon also has a deeply discounted price on RTINGS’ #2 TV, the 77-inch edition of the LG OLED C1 Series. That TV is now selling for $2,896.99, down from its initial price of $3,799.99. RTINGS called that model “an amazing all-around TV. It has stunning picture quality thanks to its near-infinite contrast ratio, which is great for watching movies or gaming in the dark.”
On Best Buy’s site, there is a discount listed for RTINGS’ #1 TV, the LG G1 OLED TV. In its 55-inch incarnation, the TV is down to $1,699.99, from its previous price of $1,999.99.
“The LG G1 OLED is an amazing overall TV,” RTINGS said. “It delivers stunning picture quality for dark room viewing because of its near-infinite contrast ratio and perfect black uniformity. It’s also good to use in well-lit rooms for watching sports or TV shows as it has fantastic reflection handling, and the wide viewing angles make it suitable for wide seating areas.”
