Big, cheap TVs embody the modern Black Friday sales. Screens offer more surface area for less money every year and 2021 is no exception.
Many major retailers blow out their big screens on Black Friday and we’ve been perusing their websites to find the best displays at the biggest discounts.
There was a time when going too big was a hindrance. TVs didn’t have the necessary resolution to let viewers sit close to a big screen. With 4K the norm now, you can go a lot bigger, even if your room is relatively small. There’s no time like Black Friday to make a purchase.
The best Black Friday TV deals
Best smart TV deal: Hisense 58″ Class 4K UHD HDR Roku Smart TV $338 (Was $426)
There’s nothing like a huge, cheap TV to get the Black Friday feeling. This 58-inch display runs on the Roku smart platform, which means it can handle pretty much all of your streaming needs without an external box. It offers 4K resolution and HDR support, but don’t expect the overall picture quality to compete with a TV that costs five times as much. That’s not the point here. This is a solid, giant screen for very little money (relatively speaking). Plus, it’s just a little bigger than the 55-inch models we typically see around this price point on Black Friday.
Best OLED TV Black Friday deal LG 77″ Class 4K UHD Smart OLED C1 Series TV $2,897 (Was $3,999)
If all that crypto you bought is paying off like crazy and you want to seriously upgrade, this massive OLED display is a great way to do it. Its OLED backlight means that every pixel provides its own illumination. The black levels are blacker and the contrast ratio makes the picture pop in a way that most other TVs can’t match. This is about as big as you’ll find for an OLED display and it’s more than $1,000 off at the moment.
Best designer TV Black Friday deal: Samsung 32″ Class The Frame QLED HDR Smart TV $447 (Was $699)
If you subversive to the HGTV mindset in which a giant black rectangle can really mess up the look of a room, this 32-inch screen might be a better fit. It’s a full-on smart TV with Samsung’s built-in smart streaming tech, but it’s built into a stylish frame. When you’re not watching content, it can display an array of digital artwork that you can read about on Wikipedia and then explain smartly to your guests to impress them. Maybe put out a little brie cheese, too—really complete the effect.
Best 75-inch Black Friday TV deal: Samsung – 75″ Class QN84A Neo QLED 4K UHD Smart Tizen TV $1,899 (Was $2,799)
This TV uses the same Neo QLED tech as the 65-inch version above, but it brings the screen size all the way up to 75 inches. It’s good enough at upscaling content to fill its 4K screen that you can fit this giant TV into a space that requires you to sit relatively close without noticing any real image degradation. Plus, you get the Tizen smart TV platform, which is good enough to handle most of your common streaming duties. It’s worth noting that it also gets you Samsung’s SolarCell remote, which doesn’t require disposable batteries and instead charges via a built-in solar panel. Cool.
