Early Walmart Black Friday Deals, for instance, have the 2019 Vizo 55-inch M-Series Quantum 4k UHD Smart TV on sale for $398 (that's $100 off). The retailer is also taking up to $800 off select Samsung QLED TVs. And these are just a few of the best TV deals we're seeing right now.

In the coming days we expect to see aggressive TV deals on everything from 32-inch sets to gigantic 65-inch cinematic TVs. Meanwhile, manufacturers like TCL, Vizio, and Insignia will help lower TV prices by offering featured-packed models at a fraction of what they cost years ago.
TV Buying Guide 2019
- 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 refurbished 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.

What to Expect from Black Friday 2019
Look for LG OLED TVs from $999, 4K UHD TVs from $199, and premium TCL, Samsung, and Vizio QLED TVs from $400. Also, be on the lookout for TV sales from off-tier brands like Hisense and Sceptre. While they may not offer the best picture quality, they could be used for a spare guest room or children's bedroom.
