If it’s big-screen PC gaming thrills you seek, Black Friday 2023 has you covered. Half decent 55-inch 4K TVs kick off at just under $350, while even a monster 65-inch OLED can be had for sub $1,300.
The 55-inch TV in question is a TCL model with basic HDR chops and 500 nits of brightness. It’ll only do 60Hz at 4K (120Hz is supported at 1440p), but if you’re on a tight budget, you’re probably not planning on pairing it with a megabucks GPU. It’s a bit of a steal for $349.99 on BestBuy.
Of the OLED options, perhaps the most intriguing is the LG 48GQ900-B. Strictly speaking, it’s a monitor with both HDMI 2.1 and DisplayPort 1.4 inputs. But it’s very much TV-derived with its 48-inch OLED panel.
That’s probably why you can now snag this full 4K model with 138Hz refresh for just $699 from BestBuy. It sure makes a 27-inch 1440p OLED gaming monitor for $800-plus seem like a very stingy deal.
A slightly more conventional choice is the LG B3 OLED. The 65-inch model comes in at $1,296.99 on Amazon. It’s a pretty straight forward 120Hz 4K model and lacks some of the more expensive LG C3’s features, including Evo Brightness Booster. But it’s a massive amount of high-refresh 4K OLED for the money.
But if you favour brightness and quality over absolute size, the Samsung S90C in 55-inch trim could be your best bet. It’s similarly priced to the LG B3 65-inch at $1,297.99 on Amazon. But Samsung’s QD-OLED panel tech performs much better when it comes to full-screen brightness, which is so important on the PC.
Whichever one of these big panels you go for, you’re getting the kind of deal that wouldn’t have seemed possible just a few years ago. There’s an awful lot of valuen on offer here.
