May is an interesting time to shop for a brand new television. The call of the outdoors is tempting, the anxiety-laced decision of choosing between a 2020 model and a 2021 model is paralyzing and we’re still far away from Black Friday.
Luckily, you have every reason to lean into the madness this month — there are some impressive 4K TV deals to be had! Here are some of the best 4K TV discounts we’ve seen in May:
May’s Best 4K TV Deals
LG BX Series 55″ 4K UHD Smart OLED TV with AI ThinQ (2020 Model)
Sale Price: $1,296.99 | Reg. Price: $1,599.99
LG’s BX line might not be quite as packed with features compared to its premium CX models, but like outsmartbullet said — $1,000 is a good deal for a big OLED television, especially from a brand known for its reliability at any price point.
The BX 55″ inch really shines in the picture department, thanks to the Perfect Black, Intense Color and Infinite Contrast features provided by the self-lighting OLED panel. Next-gen gamers will appreciate this TV’s compatibility with G-SYNC, FreeSync, VRR and ALLM.
Samsung 85″ Class Q80T QLED 4K UHD Smart TV (2020 Model)
Sale Price: $3,249 | Reg. Price: $4,997.99
The deep blacks and rich colors native to most QLED TVs are usually worth the investment, but a $2,000 discount makes the vibrant contrast of Direct Full Array 12X just a little bit crisper. Adaptive Picture and Object Tracking Sound can create a sense of atmosphere and presence in any room, further boosted by the noise-dampening Active Voice Amplifier.
According to our research, BuyDig is offering this whopper of an 85″ Samsung TV for $50 less than the competition. On top of that, this deal is eligible for 2.50% cashback in Slickdeals Rewards for PC users who have the extension.
Sony X80J 65″ TV: 4K Ultra HD LED Smart Google TV (2021 Model)
Sale Price: $898 | Reg. Price: $999
With each new release year, high-end 4K TVs are in a perpetual race towards the future. Cutting edge features that might work great someday are swell and all, but the real action happens in the “serviceable budget TV” arena. The 2021 X60J from Sony is a solid example, especially considering the enduring popularity of its 2020 counterpart on this very list.
Compared to last year’s model, this 65-inch X80J has a 69.71% color gamut, a significant increase. The Google UI has been a polarizing subject among 4K fans, but it seems to work smoothly, even when using the built-in Google Assistant on the remote.
Samsung 86″ Class Crystal UHD TU9000 Series (2020 Model)
Sale Price: $1,797.99 | Reg. Price: $2,199.99
MichaelA3457 said it best: Who needs a projector when you can get an 86-inch 4K 120Hz TV for under $2,000? You can get your own Alexa-compatible UHD projector screen for a whopping $200 less than the previous lowest price, which is especially impressive given the fact that this model was only released four months ago.
With a 240Hz motion rate and a dedicated Real Game Enhancer mode, this behemoth of an entertainment system is a solid pick for gamers eager to see their next-gen consoles in action on the big screen.
Sony 55″ X800H Series LED 4K UHD Smart Android TV (2020 Model)
Sale Price: $699.99 | Reg. Price: $799.99
Not interested in installing a full-fledged movie theater in your living room? This modestly-sized Sony X800H comes with many of the features found in its high-end peers at a fraction of the price, including Sony’s TRILUMINOS display and Motionflow XR 240 refresh rate compensation.
If you are concerned about how your TV might look from different parts of the room, GreyNose384 emphasized its impressive viewing angle range. This might come at the cost of picture quality, but it seems on par for the price point.
TCL 75-inch 5-Series 4K UHD QLED Roku Smart TV (2021 Model)
Sale Price: $999 | Reg. Price: $1,199.99
For those ready to let go of 2020 once and for all, you can save 17% on a 2021 TCL 5-Series Roku Smart TV. Slickdealer CyanLlama738 suggests this TV as a suitable compromise if you’re looking for updated features but not feeling too bothered by the 60Hz refresh rate.
The industry standard may be trending toward 120Hz, but TCL compensates with Automatic Low Latency Mode and HDR Pro Pack with Dolby Vision.
LG CXPUA 55″ Class 4K Ultra HD HDR Smart TV (2020 Model)
Sale Price: $1,399.99 | Reg. Price: $1,799.99
The LG OLED CX Series Ultra HD line was one of our perennial favorites in 2020, so it’s only fitting that we feature the handsome midsized 55-inch model before it becomes outdated. Sporting a whopping 8.3 million pixels and responsive brightness/dimming in every individual one, this TV is a solid choice for a small home theater setup or gaming lounge.
As discount 2020 models start to slip into irrelevance, it’s time to set your sights on the latest and greatest. You don’t have to overpay, either — all you need to do is set a Deal Alert. We’ll contact you when your future 4K TV goes on sale within your budget.
