Oscar’s weekend is finally upon is.
Movies have been weird this year — not the movies themselves, of course, but the whole “being pushed back or released via streaming thanks to coronavirus” thing — and we’re all looking forward to sitting in front of the TV and soaking in the normalcy on Sunday.
Maybe squinting to see those beautiful faces in 1080p will inspire you to upgrade to 4K or QLED. Here are our favorite TV deals this weekend:
Samsung’s Q800T series is already Samsung’s most affordable 8K TV. However, it has seen a discount that drops the 65-inch model to less than $2,000 for a few weeks now — and it needs to be talked about. Prepare to be thrown into depths double that of a 4K TV and brilliant pops of shade thanks to Samsung’s Direct Full Array 24X** backlighting.
PSA: Enjoy an extra $300 price drop compared to last week at this time.
A dark room is a prime environment for at-home movie — as long as your TV can actually carve out those dark scenes, that is. LG’s GX Series offers a near-infinite contrast ratio and black uniformity that’s inexplicably radiant. Plus, the luxe one-piece design takes it from a regular big TV to a true cinema accessory.
The 77-inch version of Sony’s 2019 A9G line has returned to its November holiday pricing. It certainly gives the LG GX Series a run for its money as *the* cinephile choice this week. This OLED masterpiece is armed with Sony’s “best processor ever” and uses Acoustic Surface Audio+ sound to bring concert hall-like sound to each scene.
Hisense, Vizio, and more
The chance to upgrade to QLED (on a 55-inch display, no less) for less than $500 is a prime example of just how mainstream this once-elusive technology has become. The 5 Series is the entry-level tier of the bunch and doesn’t have the same brightness as the 6-Series or 8-Series. But for the price, it’s a solid budget QLED with punchy colors and built-in Roku.
