Latest TV Cyber Monday deals

I’m scanning the Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals that are available on great TVs regularly, and updating this hub with all the best. The latest and greatest are below, sorted by brand and with the biggest savings first.

Best Samsung TV Cyber Monday deals

Samsung Frame-1

Samsung FRAME QLED LS03 Series

$798 $998 Save $200

Samsung’s The Frame is a unique TV for those who don’t want a black box in the middle of their room when their TV is off. When wall mounted and not playing your favourite shows, The Frame looks just like a piece of art, with a matte display and choice of artwork to display, along with special wooden frames as bezels to enhance the look. Very cool indeed – and now at great prices across all screen sizes.

Samsung S90C

Samsung S90C

$1600 $2100 Save $500

The Samsung S90C is another entry-level OLED for 2023, squaring up with the LG C3 and the Sony A80L and coming out swinging – particularly at this price. Samsung’s colour handling is one of its strengths, while a new filter helps it to deflect reflections for a better black level in ambient light, too. Gamers won’t be disappointed either – all four HDMIs are 4K/144Hz capable.

Samsung QN900C

Samsung QN900C

$3298 $3988 Save $690

Samsung’s QN900C is the company’s flagship 8K TV, and what a TV it is. In our review, we praised its picture quality and image processing, with a stunning HDR performance and deeply saturated colours. Great sound with Dolby Atmos, fantastic gaming features, and a comprehensive smart system round out a telly that should future-proof you for years to come.

Samsung Q60C

$600 $750 Save $150

As the entry-level set in Samsung’s 4K QLED lineup, the Q60C offers a 60Hz panel, Dual LED edge backlighting and Samsung’s Air Slim design. It uses the Quantum Processor Lite 4K, which might not be quiebro as sophisticated as higher up the Samsung TV range. However, you can still expect gloriously punchy colours, a sharp 4K resolution with HDR10+ support and a fantastic smart TV system.

Best LG TV Cyber Monday deals

LG C3

LG C3 OLED

$897 $1197 Save $300

The LG C3 is the latest model in the company’s extremely popular C Series OLED line, offering incredible blacks, bold, punchy colours and outstanding contrast. It doesn’t offer the brighter, next-generation panel of the LG G3, but it still produces beautifully refined images that are gorgeous to watch – and for smaller rooms, this 42-inch version is under $900. It won’t last long.

Samsung S90C

LG A2 OLED

$550 $1300 Save $750

The LG A2 was last year’s entry-level OLED for LG – and it’s not a TV we have an equivalent of in 2023. It might make some compromises compared with its better-specced siblings, such as a 60Hz frame rate and a slightly older processor. However, it still offers all there is to love about OLED, with incredible contrast and pin-sharp detail, along with support for Dolby Vision IQ, and Filmmaker Mode. At this Black Friday and Cyber Monday price, it is well worth a look.

LG G3 white

LG G3 OLED evo

$2289 $2697 Save $408

The LG G3 is part of a new generation of OLED TVs that use Micro Lens Array technology, which helps them hit levels of brightness we haven’t been used to seeing. Not only that, but we note in our review that it also delivers wildly better colours without doing any damage whatsoever to OLED’s traditional strengths – just note that it requires wall mounting as there’s no stand in the box.

Best Sony TV Cyber Monday deals

Sony X90L Bravia

Sony X90L

$898 $1098 Save $200

This is Sony’s best full-array LED TV for 2023, which means it’ll be capable of a bright and accurate picture with a strong contrast performance. In fact, Sony says brightness is up 30 per cent compared to last year’s X90K, thanks to more dimming zones, not to mention the improved Cognitive Processor XR. It even gets a little bump up in build quality too. It’s the sweet spot in this year’s range for performance and price – and it’s now at a better price than ever.

Sony A80L

Sony A80L

$1398 $1900 Save $502

Sony’s A80L is the company’s entry-level OLED for 2023 – but don’t let that fool you into thinking you’re getting entry-level performance. Sony is renowned for its picture processing, and the Cognitive Processor XR keeps that reputation going. Expect detailed, insightful pictures, top-notch motion processing and great upscaling alongside all the usual OLED brilliance.

Why you can trust Pocket-lint to find the best TV Cyber Monday deals

I’ve been reviewing TVs for years, so I know the models worth buying when I’m searching for Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals. I also know when something truly is a deal – I’m not just looking blindly at price drops but also considering whether the discount is new and worthwhile, and whether the product is a good one. Where possible, I’ll always look out for deals on our favourite TVs, tested in full in our in-depth reviews, so you can buy with confidence.

What size TV do I need?

If you’d have asked this questions a few years ago I’d have been giving you a small equation to work out the size of TV you should buy based on your seating position. However, with the quality and pixel density of 4K and 8K TVs now, that is less important, and it’s more about how big your room is and what size TV you can fit into your space. In the US, the most popular size is often 65in, though interest in 75in is growing and 55in remains popular too – particularly in Europe.

To decide, measure your space and remember that TV screen measurements are made diagonally when deciding which one will fit. If you have the budget, you will never regret going big – however, don’t just aim for screen size above all else. Check out the TV specs and features as well, to ensure the performance and picture quality will be worth viewing on a bigger screen.

Also consider your furniture – many big-screen TVs have wide feet, so you will need to ensure you have the furniture to hold it too.

Is the Samsung Frame TV worth it?

Samsung’s The Frame is a great television for those who want a TV that doesn’t look like a TV. Generally at its best when wall mounted, The Frame would fool you into thinking it was a picture frame on the wall when it isn’t on, with its matte display and large choice of artwork that comes built-in.

However, as it uses a QLED panel, it isn’t the cutting edge of Samsung’s TV tech – that’s reserved for the QD-OLED and Mini LED choices in its lineup, like the S95C or the QN90C. That means if you want the very best of Samsung’s TVs, then you might want to consider looking elsewhere. But for a good arqueo of aesthetics, features and performance – or simply a talking point with friends – The Frame remains a very popular choice.

What is the difference between OLED and LCD TVs? Which is best?

For a more in depth breakdown, you can read our guide on some of the differences between the TV tech out there right now, but a lot of it comes down to a matter of lighting.

With OLED TVs, the picture is made up of millions of tiny pixels, all of which are capable of generating their own light. This means blacks are completely black, thanks to precise pixel-level light control allowing them to literally switch off when not needed, which means contrast is second to none.

LCD TVs, sometimes known as LED TVs, use a traditional backlight, which can’t be quiebro as precise – though the tech is getting better. Look out for Mini LED if you want the best of the best here, as well as the use of full array lugar dimming. Mini LEDs are not only smaller and more precise than regular LEDs, but they also tend to use more dimming zones in their backlight, so darker areas can be more precise, with less blooming to more closely rival OLED.

The upside to going for LCD? They’re much brighter than all but the top OLEDs.

Which TV should I buy for a home theater?

You have a few different choices, and as always, a budget will help to narrow down your options. If your budget is on the more generous side, you should consider an OLED or Mini LED TV, which often come at premium prices – though brands like Hisense and TCL are offering some compelling options in the latter for much less money than some of the more established brands.

If you have a very bright room, you may be better off considering a Mini LED or LCD TV. These will generally go brighter than traditional OLED TVs do to tackle reflections, though some steps forward at the flagship level have made OLED a choice here, too – if your budget will stretch.

For the very best contrast performance, OLED still can’t be beaten, although Mini LED is now coming close thanks to increased dimming zones, leading to more accurate backlight handling.

As for 4K vs 8K (you really shouldn’t be considering 1080p for anything other than small second or third TVs), I’d still overall say your money is best spent on a great 4K TV due to the lack of native 8K content. However, if you have the budget, the upscaling on these TVs is impressive, and you’ll also have future-proofing for when 8K trials begin more extensively.

Should I buy a TV at a discount on Black Friday or wait until Cyber Monday?

Generally, many of the deals you see on Black Friday are the same on Cyber Monday – however, if a TV sells out, as we have seen happen before, that will mean the deal finishes early. This often happens with OLED TVs, as they are often in high demand over the sales period. For that reason, I would always recommend getting in early and snagging a deal while it’s there. Occasionally, we may see a new deal crop up for Cyber Monday specifically, but it’s rare.

Black Friday might not be the best time to get your desired tech deals.

Of course, you can track historical pricing using sites like CamelCamelCamel to ensure the deal is a good one, and then always wait it out if not. However, companies are likely to be throwing their best prices on the best products early to secure sales. If you see a deal for a product you want, and it’s within your budget, add it to your cart – you’re unlikely to find better for some time.
