Black Friday is almost synonymous with TV deals, but in reality, most of the offers advertised during the shopping holiday aren’t worth your time. While many retailers are happy to shovel out big screens at dirt-cheap prices, the actual image quality of those cheaper displays tends to be mediocre. Put another way, you usually get what you pay for.
That said, for the handful of TVs that are good value, Black Friday is generally the best time to pick up a new set. You can check out our list of the best Black Friday deals for a more general roundup, but to make things easier for those who are specifically looking to grab a new centerpiece for their living room, we’ve curated a separate rundown of the best Black Friday TV deals we can find.
While we don’t regularly review TVs here at Ars, we’ve scoured through feedback on forums and review sites we trust to supplement our own impressions. We’ve also made sure to check price history charts to ensure each offer below brings genuine savings over what you’d pay at other points in the year. We’ll be sure to update this post if any more good discounts become available, but just be warned that some deals may sell out before the end of the day, since Black Friday sales started earlier than usual this year.
