Vizio’s first-ever OLED is also the cheapest new OLED we’ve ever seen, with a shocking $400 discount right now. It’s one of the best-looking TVs we’ve seen all year, with fantastic black levels and HDMI 2.1 ports that mean you’ll get up to 120 Hz at 4K resolution with consoles like the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X—the same performance you’d get with the LG CX we list next, but without the added benefits of the Nvidia G-Sync that television has.
Best Picture—LG CX OLED TV for $1,400 ($400 off)
LG’s CX OLED is one of the prettiest TVs of 2020, which makes this sale one of the best you’ll find this Black Friday. It’s got a super-low refresh rate option and Nvidia G-Sync for working as a computer monitor, and it’s also one of the few models that can do 4K at 120 frames per second to make video games look even better on next-gen consoles like the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X.
LG BX OLED for $1,197 ($403 off)
If you don’t need the super speedy 120-Hz 4K for gaming, the step down from the LG CX is an astonishing deal this Black Friday. For just under $1,200, you can get very nearly the same image quality as you do with LG’s higher-tiered models, with some of the best contrast on the market.
Sony A8H OLED 65-Inch TV for $1,798 ($500 off)
WIRED reviewer Jess Grey says this is one of the prettiest TVs she’s ever seen, and I’m inclined to believe her. If you’re after a shockingly beautiful screen to complete your fancy quarantine theater, look no further.
Samsung Q80T 55-Inch TV for $1,048 ($252 off)
Samsung’s Q80T has smart backlighting and quantum dot (QLED) technology, offering some of the best contrast you’ll find on a non-OLED TV. I also like that it has a central pedestal to stand on, so it will fit on older TV stands that aren’t excessively wide.
Samsung Q60T 50-Inch TV for $498 ($152 off)
TVs smaller than 55 inches are not so common these days, but this is a good option for those who need to squeeze a television into a smaller space. It has Samsung’s quantum dot technology for brighter colors, and it comes with a decent smart interface for streaming your favorite channels.
