These shopping days wrap up what has been a great year for getting a great TV for well below its retail price.

Whether you want a low-frills pick that includes Roku, Fire TV, or Google TV streaming software, or one that offers heaps of features on top of top-tier picture quality, there’s something for you in the deals we’ve found from brands like TCL, Insignia, and LG.
The best Black Friday 4K TV deals are still available

Toshiba Fire TV C350 65 inch With the guts of Amazon streaming built in $429.99 at Amazon. Toshiba C350 Fire 50-inch TV With built-in Amazon Flow Bravery is $259.99 at Amazon. It won’t offer comparable contrast and brightness that you’ll find in more expensive models, but it can bring you everything you want. The 2021 model features slim bezels, and its panel comes with Dolby Vision and HDR10 support for cinematic and realistic picture quality. Plus, it has a convenient Alexa-based remote that you can bark voice commands into.
Affordable 4K LED TV with Fire TV technology built in. This model stands out from the range of other Fire TV Edition models with Dolby Vision HDR and HDR10 support.
55-inch or 65-inch TCL 5-Series S546
The following recommendation keeps going in and out of stock at Best Buy, but it’s worth keeping an eye on during Black Friday. TCL’s 55-inch 5-Series S546 It’s only $200 at Best Buy – no wonder it’s selling out. You’ll need to check availability in your area, and hope you get lucky.
Even without that huge price cut, Best Buy’s $499 price for the 65-inch version is still great—if it’s still available near you. This 4K TV also has a QLED panel like the Insignia above, but it stands out 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 won’t offer the fast refresh rates to unlock the graphical capabilities of your PS5 or Xbox Series X (if that matters to you).
TCL’s 5-Series S546 features a gorgeous QLED panel, supports variable refresh rate, and uses the Google TV platform. It’s also equipped with Dolby Atmos, Dolby Vision, and HDR10 Plus support, like the latest 6-Series.
Next is trust TCL 6-Series TV 55 Inch, which is still available online as of the date of publication. It’s hard to get more for your money, costing just $599.99 at Best Buy, a savings of $100. It has many of the key features gamers look for in a TV, namely the HDMI 2.1 ports that can deliver 4K resolution up to 120Hz, and the Mini LED panel that makes games – and everything else – look better than a regular QLED or LED TV. Read our review.
The 2022 R646 is the latest model in TCL’s 6-Series line. The TV features 4K HDR and Mini LED backlighting, along with support for HDR10 Plus and 4K gaming at 120Hz. Most importantly, it runs on Google TV software, unlike the last generation model.
48-inch LG A2 OLED
You can pick up the 48-inch LG A2 OLED TV from Best Buy for just $570, a savings of $730. This deal is sold out online, but you may be lucky with how much it’s available at your nearest store. It might be a little on the small side if you’re hoping to go big this year, but it’s worth the trade-off for unbeatable image quality for under $600.
Now, as for the usual disclaimer about the A-series OLED: it lacks some of the high-end features we really like about the C2; It has a 60Hz refresh rate compared to twice that of the C2, no HDMI 2.1 ports, and the C2 gets much brighter thanks to the Evo panel. These omissions may be forgivable for the price, depending on the person.
If you want a great-looking screen for a fairly low price, the LG A2 OLED is one to watch over the holidays. It lacks the higher refresh rate panel and brightness of the more expensive LG C2, but the A2 is less of a barrier to entry for great picture quality.
Since I’ve mentioned it several times already, may I also tell you about the great prices they have The C2 OLED screen is LG’s best-in-class Sold for. It’s down to $1,300 at many retailers, and the price drops off a bit with volume, as you might expect. LG makes this TV in 48-inch and 42-inch variants (as well as larger, more expensive variants), and it comes in around $900 minimum. My colleague Chris Welch reviewed the C2, and you can check out his thoughts here.
The LG C2 is lighter and brighter than its predecessor, the C1. It also features a “dark room” setting to reduce eye strain, as well as the ability to log into different user profiles.
