Black Friday 2022 has official commenced and it’s time to score a great deal on a brand new 4K TV. Several vendors including Amazon, Best Buy, and Walmart are promoting some pretty amazing deals on popular, highly-rated 4K TVs and gaming TVs of every size and price range. We’ve included all of the best deals here, and give you details on just how much you’re saving and why they’re worth the upgrade.
Black Friday Deal: 65″ LG C1 4K OLED TV for $1199.99
Could this possibly be the best high-end Black Friday TV deal of the year? Right now Amazon has dropped the price of the fantastic LG C1 65″ 4K OLED Smart TV. This best-in-class TV normally retails for $2499.99. We’ve seen it for as low as $1499.99 on Amazon Prime Day, but even that deal pales in comparison to the one that’s available right now. If pristine picture quality is what you’re gunning for, there’s no good reason why you’d be looking at any other Black Friday TV at this point.
The LG C1 is an outstanding gaming TV. It has four HDMI 2.1 ports and a native 120Hz panel that supports true 4K @ 120Hz passthrough when paired with a PS5, Xbox Series X, or RTX 30 series equipped PC. There’s also variable refresh rate (VRR), which is this TV’s version of adaptive sync technology, as well as auto low latency mode (ALLM), where the TV automatically switches to a lower latency when it detects gameplay. It also supports HGiG, which is automatically calibrated tone mapping specific to your TV model.
10% Amazon Cashback for Select LG Evo C2 4K OLED TVs for Amazon Prime Cardholders
Must be logged into your Prime account to see this deal
The LG Evo C2 is the current 2022 model and the successor to the C1. The C2 has an “Evo” OLED panel which has a higher peak brightness than the panel found in the C1. That does equate to (slightly) better image quality and it’s more capable of handling very bright rooms with minimal light control. The C2 is also 35% lighter thans to a new carbon fiber type material used for the cabinet housing.
Not only have these TVs dropped in price for Black Friday, but if you’re an Amazon Prime Cardholder you can get an additional 10% in cashback savings when you purchase any LG Evo C2 OLED TV. If you’re an Amazon Prime member but you don’t have the Amazon Prime Card, well then you should totally sign up for one, since there is no annual fee. This is an amazing card because it gives you 5% cashback on all purchases on Amazon all year round.
65″ TCL 4-Series 4K TV for $228
The TCL 65S41 is an exclusive Black Friday TV model. It’s comparable to other TCL 4-series TVs except for the price tag. This is a no frills TV that offers a limited set of features but, more importantly, still offers a good image quality. It also fares well in gaming at 4K thanks to its low input lag. The Roku smart interface is intuitive to use and every bit as good as a Google TV or Fire TV. For $228, you can’t really expect much better than this, and quite honestly, we’d actually expect a lot worse.
65″ TCL 6-Series 4K Mini LED QLED TV for $599.99
The TCL R646 boasts a Mini-LED panel, which allows for better control of black levels and thus a higher contrast ratio. At the same time, it features quantum dot technology (QLED), which offers higher brightness levels and better color reproduction. The TCL R646 also has full-array LED backlighting with 240-zone local dimming and supports wide color gamut for an awesome HDR picture. This also makes for an excellent gaming TV. It has a native 120Hz panel and two HDMI 2.1 inputs, which means it can pass true 4K @ 120Hz on PS5 and Xbox Series X consoles. It also supports VRR and ALLM.
TVs Under $500
If you’re on a tight budget, here are some budget 4K TVs that have marked down to under $600, some all the way down to below $200 with free shipping. You can also check out the Walmart Black Friday deals for more like this.
Amazon Omni 65″ 4K QLED Fire TV for $549.99
New for 2022, the Amazon Omni TV offers plenty of features for a 65″ TV at a very reasonable price. This is first and foremost a TV that’s designed for streaming content. As such, it boasts the easy to use Fire TV interface and features Bluetooth 5.0 and native Alexa hands-free integration, including built-in microphones so you can control your TV using voice commands. It offers a plenty good HDR picture too, thanks to its quantum dot panel with full array LED backlighting and local dimming. Finally, the new Omni TV has an “ambient experience” mode much like the art gallery mode on the Samsung “The Frame” series TVs, which turns your TV into a dynamic art display.
TCL 5-Series 55″ 4K QLED Google TV for $199.99
Best Buy is offering the TCL 5-Series (55S546) 4K Google TV for a mere $199.99. That’s over 50% off MSRP and by far the best price we’ve seen for this particular model. This TV is a nice upgrade from the 4-series because it sports a QLED panel with full array backlighting and local dimming. Since it’s also cheaper than the 4-series at this price, it’s a no brainer.
86″ LG UQ7590 4K Gaming TV for $996.99
Features 120Hz panel and HDMI 2.1 for 4K @ 120Hz gaming
The 2022 85″ LG UQ7590 TV dropped down to $1199.99 earlier this month, but the deal has gotten way better. For Black Friday, Amazon has knocked yet another $200 off the price, finally lowering it to under $1K. This TV has everything going for it: size, price, and features, and it’s even gaming-ready. It boasts a native 120Hz panel as well as two HDMI 2.1 ports so it can output 4K @ 120Hz when connected to a PS5 or Xbox Series X.
65″ Hisense U8H 4K Mini LED TV for $899.99
HDMI 2.1 for 4K @ 120Hz
The UH8 is Hisense’s current 2022 TV. It replaces the popular U8G model from last year. This is Hisense’s highest end TV that utilizes traditional LED technology. It easily competes and surpasses similarly priced models from more well known brands like Samsung, LG, and Sony. The biggest upgrade from last year’s model is the Mini-LED QLED panel. The UH8 is also an excellent gaming TV thanks to a native 120Hz panel and two HDMI 2.1 inputs.
2022 Sony X90K Full Array LED TVs On Sale
Exclusive features for the PS5 console
Among the new 2022 Sony TVs, the X90K series offers the best value for TV enthusiasts; this model features almost all of the premium features you’d want in a TV that prioritizes image quality and it also happens to be the least expensive among the high-end Sony TVs. It features full-array LED backlighting with local dimming zones as well as wide color gamut.
The A80K is marketed as a gaming TV and is host to several welcome gaming-centric features. Exclusive to higher end Sony TVs like this one is a feature catered specifically for the PS5 console called Auto HDR Tone Mapping. It works similarly to HGiG or Dolby Vision. Basically your PS5 will be able to identify your exact TV model and apply the optimized HDR settings specific to your TV, a sort of automatic HDR color calibration if you will. It takes out a lot of tweaking involved on your end (which most people tend to ignore completely) and thus offers a better HDR image out of the box.
