Need guidance at a glance? These are our favorite TV deals from Walmart, Best Buy, Dell, and Amazon as of Jan. 22:
We don’t know how January is almost over, but we do know that a new month brings new content to our favorite streaming services. This February, we’re looking forward to Daniel Kaluuya in Judas and the Black Messiah on HBO Max, some wild new horror additions on Shudder, Hulu’s Billie Holliday biopic, and the last leg of the To All The Boys series on Netflix.
You’ll want a 4K TV for that — and might as well get it now so you’re prepared as HBO Max releases all of those Warner Bros. films.
Here are our weekend favorite TV deals from Amazon, Walmart, Best Buy, and Dell, organized by brand, then size, then price:
A $52 (9%) discount is a big deal when it’s on Samsung’s 2020 version of The Frame, which we still haven’t gotten over — despite the 2021 model dropping at CES. The Frame’s dual quantum dot technology captures over a billion hues, with backlighting that stays on top of each scene to adjust tones and keep contrast lifelike. But we know everyone is here for Ambient Mode, which you can get on your wall for less than $550.
The NanoCell TVs normally strapped with $50 discounts are getting special treatment this weekend. This particular mammoth model is seeing one of the best price slashes — making it the only 75-inch NanoCell under $1,000 at Best Buy right now. Since 2017, LG’s NanoCell TVs have been a solid choice that we keep coming back to. The technology builds on LCD and LED by deploying particles to soak up light and boost color saturation, while still staying out of the QLED price range.
One of the high points of Sony’s 2020 collection was the Z8H 8K, now $1,000 off the price it debuted at over the summer. The most affordable 8K TV Sony has come up with, the Z8H can reach 2500 nits of brightness (showcasing what HDR can really do) and cuts the noise and pixel-y blur out of deep hues and shadows. It’s armed with Sony’s X1 Ultimate video processor, a total beast at upscaling picture. Just note that 8K isn’t supported with USB or YouTube streaming.
Hisense, Vizio, and more:
We’ll never turn down a 65-inch TV for less than $400. This beloved and well-reviewed budget model from Hisense implements a seriously neat “virtual” audio technology, which creates the sensation of immersive overhead sound from speakers that are physically at eye level. Built-in Chromecast and Google Assistant are the cherry on top.
