Here’s the cheapest 55-inch to 60-inch 4K TVs on Black Friday 2019

By on November 19, 2019

Shopping for a 55-inch to 60-inch 4K TV this year? We’ve looked through all the Black Friday ads and broken down where you can get the cheapest 4K HDTV doorbusters as well as a couple backup doorbuster options, the best price on a mid-range model, the best price on a higher-end 4K TV and the best price on a OLED.

Best Price on a 55″ to 60″ 4K TV Doorbuster: $199.99 w/ bonus Echo Dot

On the first page of the Best Buy ad, you will find an Insignia 58″ LED 2160p Smart 4K TV that usually sells for $479. However, the price will drop $280 to $199.99 for Black Friday and come with a bonus 3rd gen, Echo Dot.

The Insignia TV offers 4K / HDR functionality, 3 HDMI inputs, 1 USB input and utilizes Amazon’s Fire TV interface for streaming video. In addition, the remote control includes a microphone for voice searching via Alexa.

2nd Best Price on a 55″ to 60″ 4K TV Doorbuster: $198

Similar to the model featured in our 50-inch guide, Walmart has the least expensive model between 55″ and 60″ in size. The onn. 58″ 4K HDR10 Roku Smart LED TV offers 4K / HDR functionality as well as 3 HDMI inputs, a 60Hz refresh rate, and the Roku smart TV interface for streaming video.

It’s possible that Walmart will only sell this model in-stores, but the online listing page could also mean limited sales of the doorbuster when Black Friday prices launch on Wed night. There’s no additional bonus the

Best Price on a mid-range 55″ to 60″ 4K TV: $279

Trimming $170 off the retail price (and $50 off the current sale price), the TCL 55″ Roku 4K UHD HDR Smart TV (55S425) will be on sale at both Target and Best Buy this year. The set offers a 120Hz effective refresh rate, 4K / HDR functionality, 3 HDMI inputs and the Roku interface for streaming apps.

I personally like this model for gaming, due to the low input lag and relatively low cost compared to other sets. The image does degrade a bit when viewed at an angle, but is excellent for direct viewing (like gaming). It’s highly likely that Amazon will price match this model.

Best Price on a high-end 55″ to 60″ 4K TV: $699

This sale has actually been going on for the entire month on Best Buy & Amazon, but the pricing is excellent for the QLED series of televisions from Samsung. The Samsung 55″ Q60 Series offers edge backlighting, motion rate 240Hz, 4 HDMI inputs, HDR10+ functionality and Samsung’s smart app interface for streaming.

This set excels at motion handling (ideal for sports and video games) and is a solid performer in the bright room in regards to reflections. We doubt the price will drop any more for Black Friday, but sets may pop up on Rakuten or eBay with pricing that undercuts the $699 sale price.

Best Deal on a 55″ high-end OLED: $1,499.99 + $450 Kohl’s cash

Featured in our favorite TV’s guide, the LG C9 55″ 4K TV is rated as the top OLED set of 2019 by many publications. I was surprised to stumble across it on the Kohl’s site. It’s currently being price matched to all other retailers, a $1,499.99 sale price point. The high end set offers 4K playback, HDR10, HLG, Dolby Vision HDR, Dolby Atmos, DTS-HD, and 4 HDMI inputs.

We have featured the set on Ben’s before at a price low of $1,149. However, this deal would come out roughly $100 better overall with the Kohl’s cash bonus (assuming the sale price holds next week).

Regarding online sales, be aware that Amazon (and other online retailers) will aggressively price-match or undercut many of these deals prior or during Black Friday. Watch the main Ben’s feed for the latest 4K TV deals.

    The BestBuy page for the top TV says it can be purchased in-store only on Monday, Dec 2nd.. I guess it’s not a Black Friday deal.

      I believe so. You should be able to checkout with your preferred store. Best Buy’s site indicates they will hold a store pickup item for 5 days. So you ordered something on Thanksgiving, you would have until Tuesday of the following week to pick it up.
