Best TV deals Jan. 2024: $1,000+ off several Samsung models, plus a $299.99 55-inch TCL QLED

UPDATE: Jan. 19, 2024, 5:00 a.m. EST This story has been updated with the latest deals on 4K and 8K TVs, including several Sony and Samsung discounts that have gotten even bigger since last week.

Best 4K TV deals this week:

TCL TV with football player on field as screensaver

LG TV with colorful abstract beta fish background

Hisense TV with basketball player on screen

Samsung TV with blue abstract liquid screensaver

Upgrading to a 4K TV — even a QLED or OLED — no longer has to be an intimidating financial setback. High-quality TVs featuring punchy colors, decipherable shadows, and smooth transitions have become increasingly affordable for regular consumers, made even more budget-friendly by frequent sales from retailers like Best Buy, Samsung, Walmart, and Amazon.

We’ve pulled the best TV deals from across the internet as of Jan. 18. Deals are categorized by brand, then listed in order of size (smallest to largest) and price (lowest to highest).

Samsung TV deals

Why we love it

Of the handful of 85-inch 2022 and 2023 Samsung QLED TVs on sale right now, we think the deal on the extra-large Q80C for more than $1,000 off is the best bang for your buck.

The Q80C is Samsung’s most advanced QLED (before meeting the Neo QLED side of the family), packing 96 precisely-lit local dimming zones for the meticulous brightness necessary for watching sports in the daylight. Also present are advanced gaming features like a 120Hz refresh rate and VRR support.

LG TV deals

Why we love it

This 2021 65-inch QNED TV is one of the few LG TVs still at their holiday sale price — and the reigning discount happens to be an impressive 40% off. QNED is a mashup of LG’s NanoCell technology and quantum dots (which amp up color depth using an extra light filter of nanoparticles) and the backlighting of mini LEDs (like regular LEDs, but smaller for extra precision).

The 99 Series of LG QNEDs also happens to be 8K instead of 4K. That doubled resolution isn’t yet necessary for most streaming content that’s available right now, but this large, ultra-bright TV is sitting at such a good price that most similarly-sized 4K models from LG won’t be cheaper.

Sony TV deals

Why we love it

Several Sony TVs that were on sale last week are a few hundred dollars cheaper this week (not because of new ones dropping at CES, though, as this is the second year in a row that Sony didn’t drop any new TVs at CES). However, the model highlighted here still has the best discount, despite the fact that we’ve been seeing it for weeks.

Mashable Deals

Of Sony’s 2023 TV line, the X90L is the most premium regular LED model before the lineup switches over to mini-LED. Still, the X90L features full-array backlighting with local dimming that offers more precise brightness across the entire screen than a cheaper edge-lit LED TV. (That’s particularly helpful when the screen is so massive.) With better-than-basic lighting plus a high contrast ratio, low input lag, and VRR support, this 85-inch X90L is a great big-screen budget gaming TV.

Why we love it

TCL’s Q5 series came out in late summer 2023 and knocked the Q6 Series out of its spot as the brand’s most affordable QLED. And with Best Buy’s discount pushing this model under $300, it’s easily the cheapest 55-inch QLED on our list.

A quick scroll up to our mid-size QLED picks from Samsung, Sony, and LG make the rarity of a 55-inch QLED TV under $300 palpable. The Q5 has most of the same specs as the Q6 including HDR PRO+ with Dolby Vision, Motion Rate 240 motion smoothing technology (a win for gamers on a budget), three HDMI ports, and built-in Google Assistant.
