Cyber Monday offers a great opportunity to get the 4K TV of your dreams for a lower price than usual. The shopping day marks the end of what has been a great year for getting your hands on a fantastic TV for much less than MSRP. While some of our picks are sold out online, you might get lucky with availability at your local Best Buy.
Whether you want a simple choice with Roku, Fire TV or Google TV streaming software, or one that packs heaps of features on top of premium picture quality, there’s something for you among the deals we’ve found from brands like TCL, Insignia and LG.
If you want the most TV for your money, Toshiba’s 50-inch C350 Fire TV with built-in streaming innards from Amazon costs $239.99 through Best Buy’s Amazon store. It doesn’t deliver comparable contrast and brightness that you’ll find in more expensive models, but it can provide everything you want. This 2021 model has thin bezels and the panel has Dolby Vision and HDR10 support for a more cinematic and true-to-life picture quality. Plus, it has a handy Alexa-based remote that you can bark voice commands into.
The next recommendation continues to go in and out of stock at Best Buy, but it’s worth keeping an eye out for during Black Friday. TCL’s 55-inch 5 Series S546 is only $200 at Best Buy – no wonder it’s sold out. You should check availability in your area and hope you get lucky.
Even without that huge price cut, Best Buy’s $499 price for the 65-inch version is still pretty good. This 4K TV also has a QLED panel like the Insignia above, but it’s notable for having Google TV software and support for HDR10 Plus and Dolby Vision HDR standards. It has a 60Hz panel, so while it’s great for movies and TV shows, it doesn’t deliver fast refresh rates to unlock the graphical potential of a PS5 or Xbox Series X (if that matters to you).
Next is the reliable one 55-inch TCL 6 Series TV, which is still in stock online as of publication. It’s hard to get more bang for your buck considering it’s only $599.99 at Best Buy, a savings of $100. It has many key features that gamers look for in a TV, namely HDMI 2.1 ports which can deliver 4K resolution up to 120Hz, and a Mini LED panel that makes games – and everything else – look better than your average QLED or LED TV.

Since I’ve already mentioned it a few times, I might as well tell you about the great prices that LG’s best-in-class 55-inch C2 OLED has sold for. It’s dropped to around $1,300 at multiple retailers, including Target and Best Buy, and the price drops slightly as you go smaller. LG makes this TV in 48-inch and 42-inch varieties (as well as larger, more expensive ones), to at least around $900. My colleague Chris Welch reviewed the C2, and you can check out his opinion here.
