In the past, the days and weeks leading up to the Super Bowl season were a great time to get a prior-year TV for a steal, but this year is a little different: Stock on the good TVs is dwindling fast, so finding a quality TV on the cheap is a little more challenging than ever before. Still, if you know what to look for — and lucky for you, we do — there are still some lingering deals that will satisfy that urge to have a shiny new big screen to watch the big game on.

If you act fast, you can nab any of these solid TVs before Superbowl LI streams into your living room:

Samsung KU7000 ($900-1300)

Get the 65-inch for $1300, or save a little and get the 55-inch for just $900.

If you don’t want to break the bank on LG’s awesome OLED, the UH7700 series offers outstanding performance, more HDR processing, incredible color, and one of the best smart TV interfaces in the market. Plus, at $900 for the 55-inch version, this is probably the best overall value you’ll find on this year’s list.

Vizio M Series ($700)

The Vizio M-series is an almost ridiculous value in terms for price to performance ratio, but there is something you should know before hauling it home: The M series doesn’t have a TV tuner built in, so you can’t connect an antenna and watch free over-the-air TV from your local stations. But if that’s not an issue, you will be rewarded with great picture quality, 4K resolution, HDR, and a free Android Tablet to use as a remote control. You can even “cast” content to the TV using a smartphone and Google Cast-enabled apps (there are a lot!). At just $700 for the 55-inch version and , that’s a whole lot of functionality for the dough.

Resolution 4K Ultra HD

Backlighting Full-array

Vizio E Series ($780)

You’ll get less refined backlight control, and the black levels aren’t quite as good as the other TVs on our list, but for sheer screen size at the price, nothing beats the Vizio E-series. This solid TV will give you 4K resolution at 65-inches for just $780 right now, which is a heck of a lot of real estate for the money. Plus, with a 120 hz refresh rate, you won’t miss one iota of the action.
