Walmart drops a great deal on a 43-inch Samsung 4K HDR TV

Walmart is holding a flash sale on one of Samsung’s most reliable 4K Smart TVs, dropping the price of the 43-inch beauty down to $280 — a total savings of $220. Better still, those who order by the end of the day can arrange to have it delivered on Friday, leaving just enough time to set it up before Game of Thrones* airs on Sunday.

What’s more, Walmart is offering customers the option to take that $280 and slice it into twelve more digestible chunks of $28, which can be paid over a twelve-month period. And if that wasn’t enough, it’s also offering a $25 rebate in the form of statement credit to those who take advantage of the monthly payment arrangement.

Prerequisites aside, the TV on offer is a 43-inch 4K Smart TV. It’s a member of the NU7100 Series, bundling a crisp LED screen, three HDMI slots, two USB ports and built-in Wi-Fi — so it’s armed with all the tools you’ll need to hook up entertainment accessories, like gaming consoles, set-top boxes and streaming sticks.

You shouldn’t need to use the latter, though, as the NU7100 Series is a smart TV, meaning it can be used to tap into a suite of streaming services, including Amazon Prime Video, Google Play Movies, Hulu, Netflix and YouTube, as well as a number of miscellaneous streams of entertainment, like WRC and WWE Network.

The 43-inch Samsung UN43NU7100 can run both native 4K and standard Full HD content in an upscaled 4K resolution. It also benefits from HDR, which can be toggled to extract additional detail from low-light scenes — but it’s a bit hit and miss, sometimes appearing over-saturated.

Still, at a touch under $300 it’s an absolute steal, offering an immersive, lifelike viewing experience for both native and upscaled 4K content — something most budget 4K TVs around the same price point fail to achieve — and when you factor in Walmart’s offer to split the cost over a twelve-month period, it’s a killer deal.

Not sold? Check out our buying guide to find out what makes a fantastic TV, then you’ll see that the 43-inch Samsung UN43NU7100 checks all the boxes. But if you’re looking for something a little bigger, head over to our list of other TV deals — there’s a top-of-the-range 75-inch QLED for a smidgen less than half price.

* You won’t be able to watch it in 4K, though. Sigh.

YouTube TV in 4K: Everything you need to know
YouTube TV 4K streams settings and user options.

When it comes to streaming live TV in the U.S. (or streaming any kind of video anywhere, for that matter), resolution and bit rate remain as important as ever. And you're now able to enjoy YouTube TV in 4K. Some of it, at least. And if it seems like it's taken forever for that to happen, you're not wrong.

The basic fact is that it takes a lot of bandwidth to stream video — and that's even more difficult when you're talking linear TV, (and more so still if it's a live event like sports). So it's not really that much of a surprise to learn that most live channels stream at 720p resolution — or maybe 1080p if you're lucky. (We'll leave frame rate out of the equation for a minute, but it's a thing, too, especially for sports.)

Hisense just debuted the world’s largest mini-LED TV at 100 inches
100-inch Hisense U8K 4K mini-LED TV.

Hisense now makes the world's largest mini-LED backlit 4K TV: the 100-inch U8K TV. It announced the new TV at CEDIA Expo, the annual conference for AV professionals and installers, taking place in Denver, CO from September 7-9. The new TV might be the world's biggest, but its price is surprisingly accessible (at least, for a TV of this size) at $10,000. Hisense's TVs are often deeply discounted, sometimes as soon as they go on sale, so we expect this price to drop soon. It will be available from retailers like Best Buy and Amazon later this fall.

"Popularity and consumer interest in big screens continues to grow," said David Gold, President of Hisense USA, in a press release. "While our laser TV lineup can reach up to an impressive 300-inches, we also wanted to offer an option that showcases Hisense’s superior mini-LED experience, and there was no better choice than what’s proving to be our most award-winning TV to date: the U8K Series. We’re the only brand offering mini-LED at the 100-inch size, at this performance level, with this feature set, and a value package."

Samsung’s biggest Neo QLED 8K TV comes with an equally huge price
Samsung 98-inch QN990C Neo QLED 8K TV.

Samsung has released a new 8K TV and it's the company's biggest Neo QLED so far. The 98-inch class Samsung QN990C Neo QLED 8K TV can be ordered starting September 6 from samsung.com for an eye-watering $40,000.

As you'd expect for this kind of investment, Samsung has thrown all of its best TV tech at this giant 8K screen. Its Neural Quantum Processor uses AI-based formulas to upscale any content to 8K. It uses a full array local dimming (FALD) mini-LED backlight system with quantum dots, which can deliver more than a billion colors and high contrast, with support for HDR10+. With a stated peak brightness of about 2,000 nits, the QN990C should have no trouble making HDR material look its best.
