The 5 Best HDTV/UHDTV Black Friday Week Deals for Under $800
Here’s our shortlist of 2014’s best $800-and-under 1080p and 2160p (“4K”) televisions. With analyst predictions of positive holiday sales, the TV companies want to sell as many units as possible by lowering the prices on their high quality models.
Note: Due to both supply and demand and the temporary nature of TV manufacturer incentives, the prices listed are available today but are subject to change. We do not expect them to rise through Black Friday and Cyber Monday, however we urge our readers to make their purchases as early as possible as we believe these great values will sell out quickly.
The list begins after the break.
