Want a new HDTV to watch Netflix or football games in stunning clarity? Luckily, you don't have to wait until Black Friday to score a solid deal on a new TV set. In fact, Ultra HD TVs have become so affordable these days, that you can score a solid TV deal just about any time of the year.
Currently we're seeing some aggressive TV deals on everything from 32-inch sets to gigantic 65-inch cinematic TVs. Various retailers are kicking off this month with a plethora of Black Friday-like TV deals. What's more, manufacturers like TCL, Vizio, and Insignia are helping to push prices down by offering featured-packed TVs at a fraction of what they used to cost years ago.
So if you're in the market for a new TV, you've come the right place. We're rounding up our favorite TV deals on everything from budget TCL TVs to Samsung's new 2019 QLED TVs.
But before you make any purchase, here are a few tips you should know.
- Don't buy a TV with less than 4K resolution. 4K is the standard these days, so unless you see a very cheap 1080p set, stick with 4K.
- Likewise, don't buy a TV without "smart" capabilities. This makes it easy to stream content from apps like Roku, Hulu, and Prime Video.
- Look for HDR compatible sets. They offer more realistic colors and better contrast. There are 5 HDR formats, but the main ones you want are HDR10, HDR10+, HLG, and Dolby Vision.
- Avoid paying for extended warranties. You should get at least a 1-year warranty and your credit card company usually provides additional protection.
- Stay away from refurbished TVs (unless the savings are massive). The problem with refurb TVs is that if your TV has more dents and scratches than you anticipated, return shipping is usually on you, and shipping a large TV can get expensive very quickly.
