The Best Black Friday TV Deals 2021

Staying at home during the pandemic has given many of us a greater appreciation for home life. If you’re still using an outdated TV, though, your binge-watching or sports streaming experience isn’t all that it can be. Right now, retailers are pushing out big discounts in advance of Black Friday, including deals on several cutting-edge TVs from major manufacturers like LG, Samsung, Sony, TCL, and Vizio, making it an excellent time to upgrade your living room.

The Best Black Friday TV Deals 2021

When shopping for a new TV, it’s best to keep an eye out for key features including HDR, local dimming, OLED, and Quantum Dot. All of these play a crucial role in providing you with the best picture quality; the best TVs utilize all of them. HDR has become increasingly common on entry-level TVs, but local dimming and Quantum Dot technology are still limited to midrange and high-end TVs, as they produce notably superior onscreen images. 

OLED is a new type of display technology altogether, and these TVs are slowly beginning to take over and replace LCDs. Other features such as local dimming and Quantum Dot aren’t a factor on TVs that use OLED display panels, as they have near perfect lighting without light bleeding and can produce pitch black colors as well as exceptionally bright and vivid colors without the need of Quantum Dot technology.

With some TVs on sale for hundreds of dollars off, it’s unlikely that these deals will last long. If one of these TVs peaks your interest, order soon.
