TV Deals

Vizio M60-C3 60-inch 4K UHD TV, $800
This 4K set regularly sells for $1,250 at Best Buy and Walmart, so $800 is a great price. But don't be surprised to find the same deal at other retailers since Vizio has been very aggressive on Black Friday for the past two years. For more info on the set's virtues, check our TV Ratings.

LG 55UF6430 55-inch 4K UHD Smart TV, $700
Word has it this is a $200 discount. That's hard to verify since the set—a 120Hz UHD TV with the LG webOS 2.0 smart TV platform—isn't available anywhere else right now. Rumors last month suggested that it had been selling for $900.

Samsung UN32J4000 32-inch LED LCD TV, $178
This fairly basic 720p model sells for about $230 at several retailers, including Best Buy and Target. As part of the Black Friday special, it comes with a $50 Dell gift card.
