The LG A2 is LG's entry-level OLED for 2022. It offers Dolby Vision/HDR10/HLG support, LG's webOS platform, and built-in Google Assistant/Amazon Alexa. Since it's a budget model, you only get a 60Hz panel and three HDMI ports, with no HDMI 2.1 support. But overall this is a solid OLED TV deal.

In our LG A2 OLED review, we said it "offers a wonderfully colorful picture and fairly strong audio along with a slick and intuitive interface." We also like the low input lag, which gamers will appreciate.

So why go for a budget OLED over an LED-LCD model? OLED TVs are known for their incredible picture quality, easily beating that of LCD screens most of us are used to. Each pixel on the screen of an OLED TV is lit and colored individually, and there's no backlight behind the screen. That means richer colors and deeper blacks. You also get wide viewing angles from these panels. 

This tech usually comes with a very high price tag, but the LG A2 OLED line aims to make OLED TVs more accessible. Unfortunately, the budget price does come with some drawbacks: the refresh rate of the TV only goes to 60Hz (120Hz is preferred), and there is no HDMI 2.1 support. For everyday users, these compromises won't be dealbreakers.

There is still plenty to like about the LG A2 OLED, though. The TV has support for Dolby Vision, HDR10, and HLG, viewing formats which help make the content you view on the screen look their absolute best. There's also built-in support for Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa, which means you can control your TV with your voice. The LG webOS platform the TV runs on is great, too.

The whole LG A2 OLED line is on sale at Best Buy right now, so you can take your pick of all the sizes. But if you're still looking for your perfect TV, check out our Black Friday TV deals coverage. And be sure to browser our Best Buy Black Friday deals hub for even more savings.
