With Prime Day right around the corner, we expect to see an epic number of sales on 4K TVs. However, if you can't wait till July 12, Best Buy has its own epic sale on one of the best TVs we've ever reviewed (and you can also bag deals from our Best Buy coupon codes).

For a limited time, Best Buy has the TCL 55-inch QLED 4K Google TV on sale for $429.99 (opens in new tab). That's $120 off and one of the best TV deals we've seen for this Editor's Choice TV. This Tom's Guide-recommended TV is on sale in multiple sizes.

If you're on a tight budget, this 50-inch TV is an excellent buy at $399. That said, it's only $30 off so if you can afford to spend more, the 55-inch model is the sweet spot in terms of screen size.

In our TCL 5-Series Google TV review, we awarded this TV an Editor's Choice badge for its excellent HDR performance, great color quality, smooth motion, and affordability. Not only is it one of the best TCL TVs on the market, but it's such an incredible value due to its impressive QLED display. 

Clips of 4K nature videos showed vibrant blue skies and colorful plants and animals, with none of the banding that sometimes shows up on lower-quality displays. In a letterboxed movie clip, the black bars above and below the picture looked suitably black, instead of the glowing gray that sometimes plagues LCD TVs.

The new Google TV operating system was also snappy, offering noticeably quicker and smoother operations than other platforms, including the sometimes slow Roku TV software that many TCL smart TVs use.
