Update, Saturday, Nov. 16: The 65-inch LG OLED just dropped another $200.

Want built-in Roku instead of Samsung’s OS? Check out this 70-incher from RCA. We haven’t reviewed it, and this brand isn’t exactly known for its picture quality. But it’s a friggin’ 70-inch 4K Roku TV for $550. Allowances can (and will) be made!
While CNET hasn’t reviewed this model — and expectations for a $100 TV aren’t exactly high — this 720p model has the Roku smart TV operating system (our favorite) and three HDMI inputs. Hard to complain about that feature set at this price if you’re looking for a small TV for the kitchen or kids’ room.
Featuring 4K HDR and Roku’s great smart TV system built-in, the picture quality is no great shakes, but this price is good enough (the lowest this year, so far) that you can probably overlook it.
Those looking for a bigger screen can find some savings on the 65-inch version of the Vizio M Series Quantum, which brings quantum dot color to an incredibly affordable price. Normally $800, Best Buy is offering it now for $650.
Samsung dropped the prices on all of its QLED TVs for Black Friday, and the Q70 series is our favorite value of the bunch. It’s the cheapest with full-array local dimming, the best feature for improving image quality. FALD-equipped TCL and Vizio models have similar image quality for hundreds less, but Samsung has a leg up in design.
LG’s traditional pre-Black Friday OLED TV price drop is on, and our favorite high-end TV for the money, the B9, gets a steep discount. OLED TVs produce better overall image quality than any LCD we’ve reviewed, including Samsung’s QLED TVs. LG’s 2019 versions also have more features than its previous OLED TVs, including Alexa built-in, Apple AirPlay 2 and more HDMI 2.1 extras, including eARC, Auto Game mode and Variable Refresh rate.
The C9 is also on sale, but it’s a bit more expensive than the B9 for slightly better image quality. Your call.
We haven’t reviewed this Sony but expect it to perform similarly to the LG B9: In a word: awesome. Just like the LG, this is the lowest price yet for a current-year OLED TV (the 65-inch Sony is also $2,000). Unlike the LG, Sony uses the screen to produce sound and offers Google’s Android TV operating system.
Black Friday TV deals available later in November
Wondering what’s Onn? It’s a new Walmart house brand, much like Insignia at Best Buy. And it’s jumping out of the gate with a ridiculously good deal on a 50-inch 4K screen with built-in Roku. There’s also a 40-inch model for just $98. Just one thing to keep in mind: Nearly all the initial ratings are from Walmart Spark reviewers, who received the TV for free in exchange for their feedback. Not saying you can’t trust those reviews, merely that there may be some bias.
Walmart’s Black Friday sale begins online at 10 p.m. ET on Wednesday, Nov. 27. Check out all of Walmart’s other Black Friday deals.
