You won’t find a cheaper 55-inch Samsung 4K TV than this before the new year

Missed the chance to take home a fantastic 4K TV on the cheap on Black Friday? You’re in luck — in something of a last hurrah to wave farewell to the shopping bonanza until November 2020, Walmart has knocked $150 off the 55-inch Samsung RU7100, dropping it down to just $450 (as little as $44 per month through the retailer’s flexible 12-month installment plan).

Interested? The 55-inch Samsung RU7100 4K TV is the full package, armed with the latest version of Samsung’s versatile Tizen OS smart software for one-click access to all the leading streaming services, including Amazon Prime Video and Netflix — no set-top box or streaming stick required whatsoever — and not to mention multi-format HDR.

The 4K Ultra HD screen is obviously the star of the show here, though. With a resolution that’s four times that of an HDTV, like the one at the center of your home entertainment setup now, the difference in detail is about as clear as the contrast between black and white. Now throw in HDR for squeezing every last drop of detail out of the scene at hand and we have a winner.

Worried there won’t be enough content to watch? Don’t be. There’s a myriad of 4K Ultra HD content out there, spread across networks and on-demand streaming services. Better yet, the RU7100 is also decked out with Samsung’s UHD Upscale Engine for transforming HD and Full HD material into a higher 4K Ultra HD resolution.

Plus, the Samsung RU7100 4K TV can be hooked up to both Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant for hands-free navigation. Decide to do this and you’ll be able to do everything from adjusting the volume and switching inputs to tracking down specific content — all without having to reach for the remote control. Just mumble the command and you’re ready to roll.

On the fence? Here’s what one happy customer had to say:

We love this Samsung Smart TV. It has all the applications we need and it is so easy/friendly to use. It is also so easy to add other applications. Clear picture and connects to the internet in a flash! Will buy it again to replace other TVs in our household.

But if you’re firm on something with a little more presence — maybe something with a 65-inch or 75-inch screen — there are a number of larger 4K TVs on sale right now, including a 70-inch Vizio V-Series for $700, a 65-inch LG NanoCell for $1,000, and a 70-inch Sony Bravia for $1,100, the latter of which happens to be one of the best offers we’ve seen lately.
