Here’s the cheapest 50-inch 4K TVs on Black Friday 2019
Shopping for a 50″ 4K TV this year? We’ve looked through all the Black Friday ads and broken down where you can get the cheapest 50″ 4K HDTV doorbusters as well as a couple backup doorbuster options, the best price on a mid-range 50-inch model and the best price on a higher-end 50-inch 4K TV.
Best Price on a 50-inch 4K TV Doorbuster: $148
This is Walmart’s front page doorbuster. I can’t imagine it will last long in-store, but it may pop up online sporadically on Wed night (Nov 27). It has a 49.5″ screen size and it’s 4K / HDR10 capable. It comes with 3 HDMI inputs and a 60Hz refresh rate. It also comes with the Roku interface for smart apps.
Is this something of a gamble due to the relatively unknown manufacturer . Yep! But it’s a cheap gamble at $148 for a 50″ model. This could make for a fun upgrade to the guest room or bedroom for a relatively inexpensive cost.
2nd Best Price on a 50-inch 4K TV Doorbuster: $149
Limited to in-store sales only, this Target doorbuster TV deal can be found on the last page of the ad. This Westinghouse 50″ 4K TV (usually $309.99) includes HDR-10 functionality, the Roku smart TV interface, and three HDMI inputs.
Target hasn’t advertised an online price for this model. It’s likely that the in-store price won’t be price-matched online at retailers like Amazon.
3rd Best Price on a 50-inch 4K TV Doorbuster: $179
This is also a Target doorbuster, but not advertised on the front page of their ad, thus it could last a bit longer. Similar to the other doorbusters, you get 4K / HDR10 functionality as well as the Roku interface for smart apps and a 60Hz refresh rate.
Compared to the first, Philips is a recognizable brand name. Again, this is an inexpensive upgrade for a smaller set and is a solid price reduction at $150 knocked off the retail MSRP of $329.99.
Best Price on a 50-inch mid-range 4K TV: $249.99
This is going to be the sale price on the TCL 50S425 50-inch 4K TV at Best Buy. I wouldn’t be shocked to see Amazon pricematch it on Black Friday week (or perhaps sooner). It comes with 4K / HDR functionality as well as three HDMI inputs and a direct lit LED panel.
This is a really great set for people that play video games or really just want a well-rounded set. Personally, I have the 55-inch model in a bedroom and I love it. I really like the TCL models for guest rooms since all the smart apps are built into the Roku interface (no guests yelling at me to figure out how to change inputs).
Best Price on a 50-inch high-end 4K TV: $349.99
If you are looking for a well-known brand name, check out the Samsung 7 Series (UN50RU7100FXZA). You will pay a premium for the size, but Best Buy is knocking $50 off the retail price. You get 4K / HDR, Samsung smart TV interface, 120Hz refresh rate, 3 HDMI inputs, 2 USB inputs and two 10-watt speakers.
Be sure to check Amazon’s pricing on this model as well. They typically undercut the price by a few bucks, based on the current pricing at their competitors.
