Wading through the piles and piles of TV deals during Black Friday can be one heck of a confusing and overwhelming exercise. To try and make the whole experience a great deal less stressful, we’ve put together a simple list of the four best Black Friday TV deals you can buy right now.
With these picks, we’ve mostly focused on their capabilities as gaming TVs, so there are some terrific options if you’re looking to pair them with last-gen or current-gen consoles. This has been judged by our good pals Digital Foundry in their roundup of the best TVs for gaming.
Of course, they’ll still excel as TVs for regular viewing so you aren’t necessarily sacrificing features in other areas. Don’t worry, we’ve added a couple of cheaper options too – for the more budget-conscious out there!
Let’s not dawdle any longer, then. Here are our favourite Black Friday TV deals:
If you’re looking for the best Black Friday TV deal for under £1000, then you’ll definitely want to consider the Samsung Q80T.
It’s an excellent choice if you’ve recently picked up a PS5 or Xbox Series X and is actually one of Digital Foundry’s picks for the best gaming TV. It’s a QLED that offers full 4K at 120Hz and HDMI 2.1 support – something that those next-gen consoles will be able to take full advantage of in time. Save yourself a few hundred quid over the LG OLED.
LG CX OLED
The next step up from the Samsung Q80T, the LG CX OLED takes the top spot in Digital Foundry’s list of their favourite TVs for gaming – and it’s the cheapest it’s ever been for Black Friday. In fact, it’s been our top pick since before the sales extravaganza even began!
The learned team over their rate the LG CX for its impressive contrast, low input lag and pixel response times, plus its support for the latest technologies – including the HDMI 2.1 standard that allows 4K 120Hz HDR gameplay.
We’ve highlighted both the 55 and 65 models here so take your pick depending on how far your budget or TV stand stretches.
Named as Sony’s official TV for PlayStation 5, the XH900 is another top 4K TV recommendation from Digital Foundry thanks to its HDMI 2.1 features and low input lag.
Looking for a 4K upgrade but don’t want to break the bank on a TV this Black Friday? Then we’d suggest checking out the Samsung TU7020. Specifically, the 43 version that’s currently available for only £299.
Yes, it’s clearly a budget option, so you won’t get all the fancy bells and whistles that come with the picks above. Still, you can’t really argue with this price for a 4K upgrade.
That covers our favourites right now. Best to keep it short, methinks. So, what do you reckon? Found a Black Friday TV bargain in there you like the look of?
