Toshiba’s 50-inch Fire TV C350 with built-in streaming guts from Amazon is $259.99 on Amazon.

This 2021 model has narrow bezels and its panel supports Dolby Vision and HDR10 for more cinematic and lifelike image quality. It also has a handy Alexa-based remote that you can bark voice commands into.

An affordable 4K LED TV with built-in Fire TV technology. This model stands out from the lineup of other Fire TV Edition models that support Dolby Vision HDR and HDR10.

The next recommendation keeps coming and going at Best Buy, but it’s worth keeping an eye on during Black Friday. TCL’s 55-inch 5-series S546 only $200 at Best Buy – no wonder it’s sold out. You need to check availability in your area and hope you get lucky.

Even without this huge discount, Best Buy’s $499 price tag for the 65-inch version is still pretty good — if it’s still available in your area. This 4K TV also features a QLED panel like the Insignia above, but stands out with Google TV software and support for HDR10 Plus and Dolby Vision HDR standards. It has a 60Hz panel, so while it’s great for movies and TV shows, it doesn’t deliver fast refresh rates to unleash the graphical potential of a PS5 or Xbox Series X (if that’s important to you).

$500

TCL’s 5-series S546 features a brilliant QLED panel, supports variable refresh rate and leverages the Google TV platform. It also comes with support for Dolby Atmos, Dolby Vision and HDR10 Plus, much like the latest 6 Series.

Next comes the trusted one 55 inch TCL 6 Series TV, which is still available online at the time of publication. It’s hard to get more bang for your buck since it’s only $599.99 at Best Buy, a savings of $100. It has many key features that gamers look for in a TV, namely HDMI 2.1 ports that can deliver 4K resolution up to 120Hz and a mini LED panel that makes games – and everything else – look better than Your average QLED or LED TV.

$600

The 2022 R646 is the latest model in TCL’s 6 Series. The TV features 4K HDR and mini-LED backlighting, as well as support for HDR10 Plus and 4K gaming at 120Hz. More importantly, unlike the last-gen model, it runs on Google TV software.

You can pick up a 48-inch LG A2 OLED TV from Best Buy for just $570, a savings of $730. This offer is sold out online, but you might get lucky with availability in your nearest store. It might be a little small if you’re hoping to make it big this year, but it’s worth the trade-off for unbeatable image quality for under $600.

Now for the usual disclaimer about the A-Series OLED: it’s missing some high-end features that we really like in the C2; It has a 60Hz refresh rate compared to the C2, no HDMI 2.1 ports, and the C2 gets brighter thanks to its Evo panel. These omissions may be forgivable depending on the person for the price.

$570

If you want an amazing looking display at a slightly low price point, keep an eye on LG’s A2 OLED over the holidays. It lacks the high refresh rate and brightness panel of the pricier LG C2, but the A2 is a lower barrier to entry for fantastic picture quality.

Since I’ve mentioned it a few times, I can tell you about the great prices right away LG’s best-in-class 55-inch C2 OLED sold since. It’s down to $1,300 at multiple retailers, and the price goes down slightly with size, as you might expect. LG makes this TV in 48-inch and 42-inch variants (as well as larger, pricier ones) and it goes for up to $900 for the smallest. My colleague Chris Welch reviewed the C2 and you can read his thoughts here.

The LG C2 is both lighter and brighter than its last generation predecessor, the C1. It also features a “darkroom” setting to reduce eye strain, as well as the ability to log into different user profiles.
