When it comes to TVs, 4K and HDR are impressive in their own right, but you’d currently be hard-pressed to find anything that looks better than an OLED TV. The only problem, at least for the time being, is that OLED TVs are pricier than their LED counterparts, often by quite a lot. While they are getting cheaper, LG is going a step further over the next week by offering one of its most popular OLED TVs at a shockingly low price.

Beginning Sunday, November 20, the 55-inch version of the LG B6 OLED 4K HDR Smart TV will be on sale for $1,800, with the 65-inch version available for $2,800. Those are the lowest prices to date for both TVs — more than half off each model’s list price — or in LG’s words: Best. Price. Ever.

HDR (High Dynamic Range) is currently one of the most noticeable advances in TVs in some time, offering greater contrast and color depth. OLED technology takes this even further with the ability to turn pixels completely off, making for the best black levels possible.

Like all of LG’s 2016 OLED TVs, the B6 supports both major current HDR standards, HDR10 and Dolby Vision, meaning you won’t have to worry about certain streaming services or Ultra HD Blu-ray discs not being supported. The TV is powered by LG’s webOS 3.0, featuring built-in HDR streaming from services like Netflix, Amazon, and Vudu.

We are in the process of finishing our review on the LG B6, and as expected, it continues to offer the best picture you can buy … for now.

This promotion will be available at both LG’s website and a number of retailers nationwide. The special price will be valid through Black Friday, and come to an end on Monday, November 28.

What is PHOLED? Your eyes (and your utility bill) are going to love it
A phosphorescent OLED panel.

The TV industry loves its acronyms, and we’ve got one more you should know about: PHOLED, which stands for Phosphorescent OLED.

That sounds like it might be a new kind of OLED TV tech, but it’s actually an enhancement of how existing OLED panels are built -- one that promises far better energy efficiency, and possibly better brightness too. Here’s what you need to know.

Sony releases its 2023 TV prices with one very big exception
Sony A80L 4K OLED TV.

If you're in the market for a new TV and you've been patiently waiting to see how much Sony is asking for its 2023 models (and when you can buy them), today's the day you find out. Unless of course, you've been waiting to see what Sony wants for its latest flagship, the A95L 4K QD-OLED. In that case, we're the bearers of bad news: That model, in all three of its planned sizes (55-, 65-, and 77-inches,) is still MIA, and Sony hasn't indicated when that will change.

Samsung S95C OLED hands-on review: it’s time to get excited
Samsung S95C OLED.

What could be worth traveling 3,000 miles in a cramped airplane to New Jersey? The chance to go hands-on with not one, but three of Samsung's most hotly anticipated TVs for 2023.

I got up close and personal with the 65-inch QN95C Neo QLED, the 75-inch QN900C 8K Neo QLED, and the 77-inch S95C QD-OLED. I had Samsung representatives on hand to address questions as I had them, and I got the opportunity to make some comparisons among the TVs that I don't often get a chance to do so soon after the TVs have been announced.
