55″ LG Smart 4K UHD TV: $698 at Walmart

This well-priced television from Walmart isn’t just our pick for the best TV deal, it’s also got the #1 spot on our list of the Top 25 Black Friday Deals of 2015. Is is the biggest or cheapest 4K TV out there? No. But what you do get is a generously-sized Smart TV from a good brand for a good price. Plus, Walmart is treating this TV to it’s 1-Hour Guarantee, which means you really can actually get your hands on one.

P.S. If you prefer to shop online or just don’t want to leave Thanksgiving dinner, check out the 55″ LG 4K TV at Dell (pg 4) for only $1 more. They’re not precisely the same model, but the specs are pretty much the same.

We saw the first Black Friday discounts on 4K TVs last year, but 2015 is the year that 4K truly hit the mainstream. No longer is 4K a second page luxury item, now having been elevated to front cover doorbuster status. Looking at the selection and prices now, it’s hard to believe that just a year ago we were thrilled to find one for under $1,000.

Plus, with so many deals emerging on 4K, it’s driven the price of LED down to some eye-popping price lows. Check out that 32″ LED TV at Amazon. At $75, we’re not even really mad that our chances at grabbing one in Amazon’s blink-and-you’ll-miss-it lightning sale are slim to none. It just goes to show how affordable HDTVs are these days.

Even though Walmart took the top spot thanks to that 1-Hour Guarantee, Best Buy wins on depth and breadth this year, scoring more editors’ picks than any other retailer on our list – though Target is no slouch, Amazon will price match nearly everything, and hhgregg scores points with a nicely priced curved big screen entry. Bottom line: it’s a really, really good year to buy a TV.
