TL;DR: The gorgeous LG C9 OLED 4K TV is what your living room has been missing, and three different sizes are on sale in the PCMag Shop — save up to $1,800 when you use the code SAVE300.

If you’re a movie or television show buff and you’ve been waiting for the perfect deal to upgrade your TV setup to new heights, the time is now. Seriously, get your wallet out, the time is right now. 

If you know anything about TVs (and even if you don’t) you’ve probably heard nothing but great things about LG’s lineup of OLED 4K TVs — now, you can get the C9 (in three different sizes, mind you) for up to $1,800 off. You read that right; you can grab a beautiful, brand-new 4K television in the PCMag Shop (which is owned by Mashable’s publisher, Ziff Davis) for its lowest price ever with the code SAVE300 (hurry though, because this coupon is going to expire after this weekend). 

We’ll give you the rundown on why this TV is so great. The C9 is one of the few TVs that supports 4K resolution at 120Hz — a benchmark that TV connoisseurs have been waiting on for a pretty long time. It uses the newest HDMI 2.1 interface to aid you in future-proofing your television (one of the only devices available to utilize this until 2020). Gamers are in luck, too, because the C9 makes for extremely low input lag, keeping you at the top of your game at every moment. The built-in Alpha Gen 9 second generation processor is also a huge plus, optimizing your sound and visuals to levels you’ve probably never experienced them at. And to top it all off, the LG C9 has a built-in Google Chromecast, as well as WiFi and smart home compatibility.

You’ll be hard-pressed to find a reason to go to the movie theater again — pick up the LG C9 OLED 4K TV in the PCMag Shop and save up to $1,800 when you use the coupon code SAVE300

Samsung’s 65-inch QLED 4K smart TV is on sale for $1,000 off

TL;DR: Get this stunning 65-inch Samsung 4K smart TV for $1,799. It’s normally $2,799.99, so you’ll save 36%.

From what we saw last week during Prime Day, 4K smart TVs were some of the fastest-selling items during Amazon’s sales event. Waiting just a couple minutes before claiming a Lightning deal on some models was oftentimes too late; only the quickest-fingered shoppers, credit cards at the ready, managed to walk away with a new display. We’re getting stressed again just thinking about it.

If you couldn’t take advantage of Prime Day TV deals (or didn’t even bother trying), don’t fret: The PCMag Shop (which is owned by Mashable’s parent company, Ziff Davis) is throwing you a bone in the form of an awesome deal on Samsung’s 65-inch Q80R display, a QLED smart TV with 4K UHD resolution. Normally $2,799.99, you can shave $1,000 off that price and order it today for just $1,799 — $200 less than its listed price on Amazon.

The TV’s screen features a full array of local-dimming LED backlights, which adjust automatically when the screen displays dark colors to deliver stunningly rich blacks and stark whites. Combined with a 4K Quantum processor and Ultra Viewing Angle technology that displays a vivid, glare-free picture no matter where you sit, this TV is capable of delivering some seriously gorgeous visuals.

On the smart spec side, Samsung has engineered its Q80R display with AirPlay 2; the Bixby virtual assistant; Alexa and Google Assistant compatibility; and a Universal Guide that makes it easy to browse both streaming content and live TV. There’s also a pre-installed Ambient Mode that’ll have the TV display artwork, photos, special lighting, or patterns on its screen when you’re not watching a show or movie.

You’ll save an impressive 36% on Samsung’s 65-inch Q80R 4K smart TV by buying it through the PCMag Shop.

TL;DR: Walmart has slashed the prices of several Vizio D-Series TVs by as much as $250 as part of its ongoing Big Save sale. Get the one you see above for just $110, for example!

So, you’ve found yourself in a bit of a pickle. You desperately need to buy a new TV before you head off to college — Grey’s Anatomy isn’t going to watch itself, after all — but you’re on a budget, and you missed out on Amazon’s Prime Day discounts. (In your defense, some of those Lightning deals were scooped up before we could even click “Add to Cart.”)

Don’t go into panic mode just yet, because Walmart’s got your back: The big box store’s Big Save summer sales event is carrying on for a short while longer, and you can score one of Vizio’s D-Series TVs for as low as $110.

Take your pick from three different display types:

D-Series 4K Ultra HD Smart LED TV

These snazzy smart TVs depict your favorite shows in lifelike clarity and impeccable color quality thanks to their inclusion of 4K Ultra HD and HDR technologies, respectively. Each one has been equipped with the Google Chromecast streaming media player and comes with SmartCast for voice control via both Amazon Alexa and the Google Assistant.

Choose from four different sizes:

  • 43 inches: $249.99 (normally $379.99 — a 34% savings)

  • 50 inches: $279.99 (normally $399.99 — a 30% savings)

  • 55 inches: $319.99 (normally $499.99 — a 36% savings)

  • 65 inches: $449.99 (normally $699.99 — a 36% savings)

D-Series Full-Array LED Smart TV

Full-array LED backlighting gives this 43-inch 1080p Vizio TV an impressively rich and robust display. Like the TVs above, it features both Google Chromecast and SmartCast for a smart entertainment experience.

Snag this TV for only $229.99 — 38% off its suggested retail price of $369.99.

D-Series Full-Array LED TV

This 32-inch TV looks amazing thanks to a full-array LED backlighting and a screen resolution of 720p. It’s pretty bare-bones on the spec side — no smart features to see here — but if you need a TV that’s just a TV, who cares?

Order it for just $109.99 — 31% off its usual price of $159.99.

This bestselling HD smart LED TV with built-in Fire TV is 40% off

TL;DR: This 43-inch HD smart TV with built-in Fire TV is the No. 1 product in Amazon’s LED & LCD TVs category. It normally retails for $299.99, but you can get it on sale right now for just $179.99 — a 40% savings.

OLED technology is the cool new kid in town, at least as far as TVs are concerned. But since it’s still relatively new and somewhat difficult to produce, you can bet your bottom dollar that unless you stumble upon a rare sale, a nice OLED-based display will cost you, well… a lot of dollars.

That’s not to say new LED and LCD TVs can’t hold their own picture quality-wise, because they can — most notably Toshiba’s 43-inch HD smart LED TV, which comes with Fire TV built-in. It’s the No. 1 bestselling TV in Amazon’s LED & LCD TVs category, and right now it’s on sale for less than $200.

The TV is technically a “full HD” smart TV, which means it offers 1080p picture quality for breathtaking color and contrast. Its performance is speedy and responsive thanks to a quad-core CPU and Multi-Core GPU, and you can easily control its functionality using the included Voice Remote with Alexa; just speak to it to search for shows, scroll through apps, switch inputs, and even control smart home devices elsewhere in your home.

But the star of this display’s spec lineup is without a doubt its built-in Fire TV engine, which delivers tens of thousands of channels, apps, and Alexa skills right to your screen.

Amazon reviewer SaraD writes:

“Good quality for the price. It’s easy to setup, very clear picture, and the built in fire stick feels like I have consolidated hardware and I like that I don’t have to hide cords or keep up with 2 remotes.”

Toshibas’s HD smart LED TV is also available in 32-inch and 49-inch sizes, but the former doesn’t offer full HD picture quality, and the latter’s discount isn’t as good, so take Amazon reviewers’ word for it and get the 43-inch model. It retails for $299.99, but you can get it on sale now for just $179.99 — an awesome savings of $120, or 40%.
