While Black Friday brought deals on 4K TVs of all types and sizes, those who missed out can still look to Cyber Monday for last-minute savings. We’re seeing discounts across various 4K TVs into this week, including a $300 cut on the 75-inch Samsung TU8000, one of the better budget options out there in 2020.
The Samsung TU8000 this year’s latest in its budget series, delivering 4K HDR viewing without the hefty price tag demanded by its top-of-the-line QLED offerings. You’re vibrant LED panel with strong contrast, delivering image quality that impresses with its relatively affordable price. It also has low input lag, ideal for smooth gaming, although lacking many of the bleeding-edge features utilized by the latest Xbox and PS5 consoles.
While you’re usually looking at somewhere between $1,200 and $1,100 for this 75-inch model, Amazon has cut the cost to just $898 through Cyber Monday, around $300 off, while stock lasts. With these four days of deals soon wrapping, it could be the best time to buy.
The TU8000 series provides substantial value for those without thousands to drop on a 4K TV, and this saving gets the luxury of a 75-inch panel while staying firmly in the hundreds. It’s an ideal, well-rounded entertainment hub for the living room, with the onboard Tizen OS providing a direct line to all your apps and content through the TV. It makes this extremely well-suited to any movie and TV show, with features like black frame insertion (BFI) also present to bolster motion. You’re missing out on Dolby Vision support, though, and while viewing angles have improved in recent years, they’re still pretty narrow here.
And for gaming use, the TU8000 also meets the fundamentals you’d expect from any 2020 TV series. Its response time and input lag won’t hold back your games, with auto low latency mode (ALLM) support keeping a connected console smooth at all times. It works incredibly well for existing 4K-ready consoles like Xbox One X or PS4 Pro. But for those with next-gen consoles, looking for flagship features like 120Hz or variable refresh rate (VRR) support, you’ll want to look elsewhere with the best 4K TVs for Xbox Series X and PS5.
