The best 4K TV deals under $500 and over 50 inches

If you’re looking for a new television for yourself or as a gift, a 4K UHD (ultra high definition) set is the way to go. Sure, there are 8K TVs making appearances on the scene, but like 4K was seven years ago, 8K is in its infancy. 4K is the current standard, so buying a lower resolution TV would be moving backward. The good news is, you may be pleasantly surprised to learn 4K TV prices can be extremely affordable.  You don’t have to get into four-figure price tags for a new 4K UHD TV — in fact, we’ve got an appealing selection, all under $500.

To uncover today’s best deals on 4K UHD TVs, we filtered Amazon’s and Walmart’s current offerings. Our TV experts picked highly rated televisions that met the following criteria:

  • 4K UHD
  • 50-inch or larger screens
  • ratings from at least 100 customers that average at least four stars
  • a current purchase price of less than $500.

We are pleased to offer eight 4K TV deals that meet our criteria, listed below in the order of current selling price. Some of these deals may expire soon and revert to higher prices, so if you see something that meets your needs, don’t hesitate. All of the TVs from both retailers come with free shipping, although availability dates differ and may change while the sales are ongoing. Whether you’re buying Christmas gifts or adding to your own home, these eight deals can help you save up to $270.
