Best 4K TV deals for most people
A 55-inch TV is the most popular size available now. It is not too big, nor is it too small, making it a safe size if you’re looking to upgrade the TV in a living room or bedroom.
Vizio’s M-series 4K TVs have QLED panels, making the lineup one of the better options for color contrast and accuracy. They include four HDMI 2.0 ports, which makes it easy to hook up a variety of set-top boxes or gaming consoles at the same time. This TV is available in four sizes (50, 55, 65, and 70 inches). Best Buy has the M-series on sale in various sizes, but only if you log into a (free) My Best Buy account. The 55-inch model is available for $480 ($20 off).
Vizio’s M55Q7-H1 is a 55-inch 4K TV with a QLED panel for better color and contrast accuracy. It features four HDMI 2.0 ports, each of which support variable refresh rates up to 60Hz at 4K resolution.
The TCL 6-Series R635 model is a good option if you are looking for a reasonably priced TV in terms of price and performance. This model also includes Mini-LED backlighting, which brings better brightness and contrast while in use. The R635 model in the 55-inch size is available for $698 at Walmart right now.

Best TV deals on a budget
You don’t have to spend a lot for a 4K TV: $500 or less can still get good image quality. This includes Toshiba’s 50-inch Smart FireTV Edition 4K LED, which normally retails for $380. As the name implies, it offers the option to stream content on services like Disney Plus or Netflix and includes the option to watch live TV. You can get a 50-inch model for $400 at Best Buy or step up to the 55-inch model for just $30 more.
TCL also competitively priced televisions, and its 4-series line is one of the more affordable options on the market. The S435 model features a built-in Roku interface; dual-band Wi-Fi; support for Alexa, Google Assistant, and Siri voice assistants; and HDR10. You can get the 43-inch model for $258 at Amazon or $260 at Target.
Hisense’s H6510 model is a good option if you want to buy a 4K LED TV at a competitive price. A Best Buy exclusive, the H6510 includes Android TV software built in and has three HDMI ports. It comes in three additional sizes (65, 75, and 85 inches). Right now, you can get the 55-inch model for $380 ($20 off its regular price).

Best deals on OLED TVs
OLED televisions offer the best image quality in a mainstream TV. LG’s BX line supports HDMI 2.1, meaning this TV is perfect for people looking to take advantage of their next-gen consoles, the PS5 or Xbox Series X. You can get it in either the 55- or 65-inch sizes and save up to $200 on it, depending on the size. The popular 55-inch model is currently $1,297 at Amazon.
Though there are minor differences, this is very nearly the same TV as the CX but for a few hundred dollars less. The BX-series still supports 4K at 120Hz, variable refresh rate, and has all the HDMI 2.1 features you’d want from a brand-new TV in 2021.
Sony’s A8H OLED TV has sterling picture quality and contrast, and it runs Google’s Android TV software. It comes in two sizes, 55 and 65 inches, and the starting price is $1,900. But you can get the 55-inch model for as low as $1,498 at Amazon and B&H Photo. The 65-inch is also on sale for $2,298 at B&H Photo, about $200 off its usual $2,500 price tag.
Sony’s A8H OLED TV offers a pristine picture with perfect blacks. Sony also tunes the display performance differently than LG, leading to smoother motion when watching sports and high-speed action flicks.
Despite the high price tag, LG’s Gallery Series GX OLED is a good television for people looking to mimic a cinematic experience. It also includes built-in Google Assistant and Alexa, and for those who also want to use this TV for gaming, it does include Nvidia G-Sync and HDMI 2.1 support so that it can take full advantage of the RTX 30-series cards or Sony’s and Microsoft’s next-gen gaming consoles. You can get the 55-inch for as low as $1,797 at Amazon and Walmart. There are also 65- and 70-inch models available.
If you are looking for a TV that can provide a solid cinematic experience for TV shows and movies, LG’s GX series is a good choice. It includes support for Dolby Atmos, but it is also a good TV for gaming thanks to its support for Nvidia G-Sync and includes HDMI 2.1.
4K TVs for the Sony PS5 and Microsoft Xbox Series X
Sony’s PS5 and Microsoft’s Xbox Series X can play 4K games with HDR at up to 120 frames per second. So naturally, if you don’t have a TV that takes full advantage of the consoles, it might be time to upgrade. For the best experience, you’ll want a TV that supports HDMI 2.1.
Vizio recently released its first OLED TV, and it is a good option for people looking to buy a TV that takes full advantage of the PS5 and Xbox Series X hardware. It supports HDR and HDMI 2.1, so you can game at up to 120Hz in 4K. Best Buy currently has a deal on this TV where you can buy the 65-inch for $1,900 ($100 off).
Vizio is a newcomer to the OLED TV space, but it’s using the same beautiful LG panel as everyone else — and pricing it for much less. The Vizio OLED should be a perfect fit for either the Xbox Series X or PlayStation 5, thanks to its fluid 120Hz 4K gaming capabilities, and the perfect blacks will make your Netflix content look great, too.
Alternatively, there is LG’s CX series of TVs. It includes support for Nvidia’s G-Sync and AMD’s FreeSync adaptive sync technologies and a low 1ms response time. The big difference between the CX and BX is the CX line can have slightly better brightness, which is better for HDR content. It comes in three sizes: 55, 65, and 77 inches. Right now, you can grab a 65-inch for as low as $1,950 at Amazon.
LG’s 65-inch CX OLED TV features Nvidia G-Sync and AMD FreeSync adaptive sync technologies and a low 1ms response time, so you’ll avoid seeing screen tearing and other visual artifacts. Additionally, with its HDMI 2.1 ports, the PS5 and Xbox Series X can display beyond 60 frames per second.
Samsung’s Q80T is one of the best LCD TVs on the market, and it is also a good option for the next-gen console early adopters. It includes vibrant and accurate colors, supports 120Hz gaming, and includes a variable refresh rate. Right now, you can get a 65-inch model for $1,600 at Best Buy and Samsung.
Samsung continues to make some of the best 4K LCD TVs on the market. The Q80T has gorgeous quantum dot HDR, 120Hz gaming, variable refresh rate, and even packs in speakers that are good enough to rival some soundbars.
