Newegg drops a sweet deal on this Samsung 4K Smart TV with HDR10+

You don’t have to wait until Memorial Day to bag yourself a bargain. Online retailer Newegg has dropped the price of one of Samsung’s 55-inch 4K smart TVs down to $680 — a total saving of $520. There is a slight catch, though: The offer won’t be around for long, so those interested will need to act fast, or risk losing out.

The million 680-dollar question is whether this particular television is worth your hard-earned cash, and we’re confident in saying it is. The 55-inch 4K screen is clear and the integrated Ultra HD Engine does a “superb job” at upscaling regular HD and Full HD content to 4K Ultra HD, according to one Newegg customer.

Samsung, on the other hand, says the main reason customers ought to be interested in the UN55NU8000FXZA (that’s its rather unfortunate name) is for HDR10+, a more advanced version of HDR that optimizes low-light scenes in real time, extracting additional detail from each individual frame and relaying it back to the viewer.

There isn’t a whole lot else to say about the TV from a technical perspective, other than that it has four HDMI slots and two USB connections. You shouldn’t need to use them all, though, as it also has built-in Wi-Fi, which can be used to access a host of leading streaming services, including Google Play Movies, Hulu, Netflix, and YouTube.

If you’re a fan of controlling the accessories in your home using nothing but your voice, you’ll be pleased to hear that the UN55NU8000FXZA has Samsung’s Bixby voice assistant on board — something the firm has been bundling on everything from refrigerators to washing machines, and from smartphones to tablets, as of late.

With Memorial Day and the sales that follow right around the corner, you’re likely feeling a little apprehensive about pulling the trigger just in case something a little better comes along on the day. But at a savings of $520, it’s unlikely the price will be dropped even further as it’s on par with the sort of pricing we see on Black Friday.

If you do have that kind of cash laying about, and you’re in the market for a capable 4K TV, the UN55NU8000FXZA is a steal at $680. That said, if you’re looking for something a little smaller or larger, be sure to check out our list of the best TV deals available right now — our top pick is a 49-inch 4K JVC for $270.

Easily one of the most unique TVs to come out in the last few years is Samsung's The Frame, a gorgeous and thin TV that's just as much an art piece as it is a television. Of course, having such a high-end TV comes at a price, which is why were really happy to see Samsung's Discover sale include The Frame. While there are a lot of great TV deals out there, we definitely think this is one to pick up, and with several hundred dollars in savings in the bigger sizes, it's well worth grabbing quickly, especially as the sale is coming to an end tonight.

Why you should buy the Samsung The Frame QLED TV
One of the best TVs around, the Samsung The Frame QLED TV is so gorgeous in so many ways. One huge selling point is the fact it doubles up as a work of art. It needs wall-mounting via the slim-fit wall mount included. Then you enable Art Mode and the TV displays your very own personal art exhibit throughout the day with a motion sensor acknowledging when someone is nearby. It means the Samsung The Frame QLED TV blends in perfectly to your surroundings rather than stealing focus like other big TVs.
