Walmart has a 55-inch QLED 4K TV under $400 this weekend
Vizio 2023 M-series TV hanging on a wall.

If you aren't familiar with Vizio, it's a brand focused on budget-oriented TVs at the lower end of the market, but in the past few years, they have slowly been creeping into the higher-end market as well. Take the Vizio M6 series; not only is it a great 55-inch TV with many features under the hood, but you can also grab it for just $398 at Walmart, rather than the usual $448 it goes for. That means you can upgrade your home theater experience for less than $400, which is quite a steal.

Why you should buy the Vizio 55-inch M6 Series
What's impressive with the M6 Series is that you get a QLED panel for a sub $400 price, which means you get excellent color reproduction and range. QLED is also very useful with HDR, and the M6 Series supports HDR 10+ as well as HLG, the latter of which is used by most sports broadcasters, so if you love watching sports. It also has Dynamic Motion Rate 120, an image smoothening technology meant to recreate a 120 refresh rate, although it can be hit and miss depending on what sort of content you're watching. Refresh rate also plays a part in gaming, and luckily, the M6 Series comes with a V-Gaming Engine, which decreases input lag and response rate while activating variable refresh rates through AMD Freesync.

Best Buy’s deal of the day is an 8K TV for less than you’d think
A Samsung 85-inch 8K hangs on a living room wall.

While there isn't a lot, if any, 8k content floating around, the resolution still has its uses, especially when talking about larger screens where pixel density decreases rapidly as the screen becomes bigger. For example, this 65-inch 8k TV from Samsung is probably at the limit where pixel density starts being a problem, with larger screens above that certainly having an issue. Of course, 8k doesn't come cheap, and while it will still cost you over $1,000, this deal from Best Buy brings the Samsung QN800 down to $1,600 from the usual $2,700 it goes for.

Why you should buy the Samsung 65-inch QN800 8K TV
This may surprise you, but the Samsung QN800 comes in second on our list of best 8k TVs, only beaten out by Samsung's higher-end QN900, so you're getting some of the best features on the market. For example, if you're worried about watching content at 8k resolution, the QN800 comes with a neural quantum processor that can upscale most content up to 8k, although the outcome will vary a lot depending on the source resolution, with lower resolutions, such as HD, not upscaling as well. Of course, it's also a QLED TV, so it has much richer colors and better color reproduction and clarity than typical screens. Since this is Samsung's own technology, the implementation is stellar.
