Tech News: Best TV deals right now
The Roku smart TV operating system is CNET’s favorite and a 70-inch TV is about as big as Roku comes. We haven’t reviewed it and we don’t expect it to have stellar picture quality. But it’s a friggin’ 70-inch 4K Roku TV for $550.
A bit smaller and a bit cheaper, this TCL offers the same sweet Roku system and a similarly substantial discount. Our review of this series found picture quality that’s just “good enough,” but if that’s good enough for you, it’s a solid deal.
Here’s a good one we actually did review. The M8-Series Quantum delivers excellent picture quality, with deep black levels, accurate color and great 4K HDR performance. And its smart system is phone-friendly, with Google Cast and Apple AirPlay control.
Samsung dropped the prices on all of its QLED TVs for Black Friday, and the Q70 series is our favorite value of the bunch. It’s the cheapest with full-array local dimming, the best feature for improving image quality. FALD-equipped TCL and Vizio models have similar image quality for hundreds less, but Samsung has a leg up in design.
LG’s traditional pre-Black Friday OLED TV price drop is on, and our favorite high-end TV for the money, the B9, gets a steep discount. OLED TVs produce better overall image quality than any LCD we’ve reviewed, including Samsung’s QLED TVs. LG’s 2019 versions also have more features than its previous OLED TVs, including Alexa built-in, Apple AirPlay 2 and more HDMI 2.1 extras, including eARC, Auto Game mode and Variable Refresh rate.
The C9 is also on sale, but it’s a bit more expensive than the B9 for slightly better image quality. Your call.
We haven’t reviewed this Sony but expect it to perform similarly to the LG B9: In a word: awesome. This price is for the 55-inch version, and both it and the 65-inch ($2,000) currently cost a bit more than the LG B9. Unlike the LG, Sony uses the screen to produce sound and offers Google’s Android TV operating system.
Tech News: Black Friday TV deals available later in November
Wondering what’s Onn? It’s a new Walmart house brand, much like Insignia at Best Buy. And it’s jumping out of the gate with a ridiculously good deal on a 50-inch 4K screen with built-in Roku. There’s also a 40-inch model for just $98. Just one thing to keep in mind: Nearly all the initial ratings are from Walmart Spark reviewers, who received the TV for free in exchange for their feedback. Not saying you can’t trust those reviews, merely that there may be some bias.
Walmart’s Black Friday sale begins online at 10 p.m. ET on Wednesday, Nov. 27. Check out all of Walmart’s other Black Friday deals.
