If you’re shopping for a new TV, conventional wisdom says to wait for Black Friday. But these are unconventional times, with supply-chain disruptions and shipping delays adding a lot of uncertainty to the mix. My advice: If you see a good deal now, grab it.
Here are two especially good ones, starting with the most affordable: For a limited time, and while supplies last, Best Buy has the Hisense A6G Series 60-inch 4K UHD Smart Android TV for $380. That’s $170 off the regular price and one of the best TV deals I’ve seen all season.
Hisense is a budget brand, no question, but I think most viewers will be plenty happy with this TV. In addition to full 4K resolution, it supports Dolby Vision HDR and HDR10 — technologies designed to make colors super-vibrant and shadows super-detailed.
The A6G also has baked-in Android, which should lower the learning curve for anyone who uses an Android phone. You can stream Netflix, Hulu, YouTube and pretty much every other service under the sun, and you can use the voice remote to open apps, adjust volume, search for shows and so on.
There’s also built-in Chromecast, meaning you can mirror your phone, tablet or laptop to the big screen.
Feel like a 60-inch isn’t big enough? Best Buy also has the Hisense H65 Series 70-inch 4K UHD Smart Android TV for $520, which is $130 off the regular price.
This model is a generation older than the A6G Series (which explains why it’s marked “clearance”), but still a solid choice. (Indeed, over 1,700 Best Buy customers collectively rated it 4.5 stars out of 5.)
On the spec front, it’s nearly identical, with similar Dolby features, the Android TV operating system and a voice-capable remote. Chromecast is here as well.
Whichever model you choose, I highly recommend adding a sound bar. Because although the screens are big and beautiful, the built-in speakers are small and weak. Here’s one I like: The Vizio V-Series 2.1-channel sound bar with wireless subwoofer for $120 (save $40).
What do you think? Are either of these TV deals speaking to you?
