This 55-inch Samsung QLED 4K TV is on sale for $700 for Super Bowl 2020

Having friends over to watch Super Bowl 2020? You’re in for a treat — the big game will be broadcast in 4K Ultra HD with HDR for the first time. But to watch the action unfold in lifelike detail, a 4K TV is needed. Don’t have one to tune in on? Walmart has discounted one of the best in the business: It has moved the 55-inch Samsung Q60R to the discount bin, which sees the QLED 4K TV on sale for $700, down a massive $500 from the usual $1,200, or as little as $69 per month through its flexible 12-month financing plan.

Being a QLED 4K TV, the Samsung Q60R is infused with a layer of Quantum Dots — a small component that lets the screen tap into a wider color spectrum and operate at a higher maximum brightness than that of its non-QLED equivalent. This results in more vibrant, vivid visuals. As such, it’s rare to find one for less than $1,000, let alone one with such a large screen. For comparison, the 49-inch Samsung Q60R sits on the shelves at Walmart for $1,000 (though it’s on sale for $600 ahead of Super Bowl 2020).

In fact, the $700 Walmart is asking for the 55-inch Samsung Q60R is $100 cheaper than the 55-inch Samsung RU8000, its non-QLED counterpart. Now consider QLED TVs are the best in Samsung’s stable, unlocking a whole new level of color and detail, and the Q60R is a no-brainer. Aside from the fact it’s been force-fed a course of Quantum Dots, the Samsung Q60R is a standard 4K TV. There’s smart software for one-click streaming to boot and HDR10+ for squeezing every last drop of detail from the scene at hand.

Not sold? Here’s what one customer had to say:

“This was the first ‘expensive’ television I ever bought and it did not disappoint. The picture quality is outstanding. I use it mostly for Netflix and Youtube. I love it and have zero regrets.”

Pair these crystal-clear visuals with a handful of your closest friends, a crate of your favorite beer and a fat stack of your favorite meat on the grill, and you have the recipe for a Super Bowl to remember. Heck, with the smells and sights, it’ll feel like you’re right there in Miami. But best of all, when the action dies down, your friends leave, and you wake up with a nasty hangover the next morning, you’ll have a shiny new 4K TV to keep you entertained — and it will be right there waiting when Super Bowl 2021 swings around.

If you’re after something a bit different, there are several other 4K TV deals available right now, including a 43-inch LG UM6950DUB for $350, a 50-inch Samsung NU6900 for $300, a 65-inch Samsung NU6900 for $480, a curved 65-inch Samsung RU7300 for $620, a 55-inch Sony X800G for $700, a 70-inch Vizio V-Series for $700, a 75-inch LG UM7970PUB for $950, a 65-inch Samsung Q60R QLED for $1,000, a 55-inch LG C9 OLED for $1,500, and an absolutely huge 82-inch Samsung Q60R QLED 4K TV for $2,600.

The least interesting things about the new Apple TV 4K
The new Apple TV 4K, 3rd-generation, with the Siri remote.

It's a big deal whenever Apple announces new products. OK, maybe not in the global scheme of things, but in our little world here, every sentence of every word of every press release is going to be scrutinized. Things that aren't a big deal are going to be turned into headlines. Blog. Blog. Blog.

And that's true again in the case of the latest Apple TV 4K, which will be available for everyone starting November 4. It is, for all intents and purposes, the same as the old one. It's better, sure. It's a little less expensive, which is great. It's almost certainly still the best streaming device you can buy. But the features that are getting the headlines? That's folks reaching for something to celebrate.

Go ahead and spend the extra $20 on the good Apple TV 4K
Apple TV 4K 2021.

Apple has announced two new versions of the Apple TV 4K. Both are good for all kinds of reasons. Better internals. New features. And prices that are much more likely to be competitive, even if they're still a good bit north of what folks are spending on the likes of Roku and Amazon Fire TV devices.

But two new Apple TV 4K boxes -- and the death of the lower-resolution Apple TV HD -- means you've got a decision to make. Which Apple TV 4K is right for you?

New Apple TV 4K tweaks the internals and the price
Apple TV 4K 2022.

Apple today announced a new version of Apple TV 4K. It's the third generation of what we consider to be the best streaming device you can buy, and Apple's not really messing with things too much. Same general design. Same general function. But the internals have been tweaked that allow this 2022 model (which follows the models released in September 2017 and May 2021) to work better with more TVs — and to allow for a little more flexibility in price.

Here are the big deals: There are now two versions of Apple TV 4K (or SKUs, for those of you who prefer inside-baseball terms). There's a model that's Wi-Fi only with 64GB of storage for $130, or a model with Wi-Fi and Ethernet with 128GB of storage for $150. For our money, we'd just go ahead and spend the extra $20.
