  1. Samsung TU8000 43in 4K HDR TV (was £499, now £379)

Samsung’s QLED TVs may get all the press and attention, but they aren’t nearly as affordable as models such as the Samsung TU8000, which is currently £120 cheaper on Amazon. If you’re not bothered about quantum dot layers, full-array lighting and viewing angle compensation films, you’re probably better off buying this 4K HDR TU8000 – it has multi-HDR support, three smart assistants and ALLM for auto-enabling a low input lag Game mode when compatible consoles (such as the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X) are connected. Buy now from Amazon 2. LG NANO81 49in 4K HDR TV (was £899, now £479)

Originally £899, the LG NANO81 49in 4K has plummeted to just £479 in the early Black Friday sales. The NANO81 is a great alternative to Samsung’s QLEDs because it uses a NanoCell layer, a panel technology that, like QLED, boosts the TV’s brightness beyond standard LCD levels. What’s more, it has an IPS-type panel, which offers wider viewing angles than the VA-type displays of Samsung TVs. This model supports two HDR formats – HDR 10 and Hybrid-Log Gamma (HLG) – and runs LG’s intuitive webOS smart platform. Note that, of the free UK catch-up apps, only BBC iPlayer is available through webOS at this time. A cheap 4K streaming stick can get you the rest. Buy now from Currys PC World 3. Panasonic HX800 40in 4K HDR TV (was £699, now £549)

The Panasonic HX800 is the 2020 follow-up to our most commended mid-range TV of last year, the Panasonic GX800. Now down to just £549 from £699, this TV is exceptionally good-value considering it has universal HDR support – including HDR 10+ and Dolby Vision – something that very few TVs at this price can boast of. Going by our testing of the GX800, the HX800 should deliver cracking HDR performance that punches well above its weight. It also has ALLM for auto-enabling its low-latency Game mode when compatible consoles such as the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X are connected. Last year’s model had ultrafast response times of just 15ms so we expect an equally speedy result from the HX800. Read our Panasonic HX800 preview for more details Buy now from Currys PC World 4. Samsung Q80T 55in 4K HDR TV (was £1,599, now £899)

While the price of the Samsung Q80T 55in had dropped since launch, it’s now come down by another £200 at Currys PC World – making it £700 off the RRP. The Q80T 55in supports HDR 10, HDR 10+ and HLG, so you’re well covered for HDR content, and it’s also the cheapest of Samsung’s 2020 TVs to pack full-array local dimming (FALD). Most importantly, it has HDMI 2.1 next-gen gaming features including ALLM, variable refresh rate (VRR) and 4K at 120Hz, making it a cinch for PS5 and Xbox Series X gamers. In our books, this is easily the best 4K gaming TV you can buy for under £1,000 right now. Read our full Samsung Q80T guide for more details Buy now from Currys PC World 5. LG CX OLED 55in 4K HDR TV (was £1,799, now £1,299)

Our favourite OLED of the year, the LG CX, is now at its lowest ever price in the early Black Friday sales. We reviewed the LG CX 55in at £1,799, but it’s now just £1,299, making it not only the best all-around OLED but also one of the best-value OLEDs too. Picture quality and HDR performance are practically impeccable, thanks to the OLED panel’s pixel-level control and colour accuracy. Dolby Vision IQ is particularly impressive. The CX is also the best gaming TV you can buy, with four HDMI 2.1 inputs that support ALLM, 4K at 120Hz and VRR (G-Sync and FreeSync), so you can really make the most of the PS5 and Xbox Series X. Read our full LG CX review for more details Buy now from PRC Direct 6. Samsung Q95T 55in 4K HDR TV (was £1,799, now £1,399)

Samsung’s Q95T is the best non-OLED 4K TV of the year and, like the LG CX, it’s a genuine all-round winner. With £400 off since our five-star review, it’s currently the cheapest that it has ever been. The Q95T QLED delivers incredible picture quality in SDR and HDR, and packs all the premium features reserved by Samsung for its flagship models, including the streamlined One Connect box, Ultra Wide Viewing Angle layer and anti-glare filter. It’s a mean gaming TV too, since it has an HDMI 2.1 input that supports 4K at 120Hz, VRR and ALLM. For PS5 and Xbox Series X gamers, the Q95T is the ideal 4K LCD TV. Read our full Samsung Q95T review for more details Buy now from Currys PC World 7. Sony XH90 75in 4K HDR TV (was £2,199, now £1,599)

After a big-screen gaming TV to pair with a PS5 or Xbox Series X? With £600 off the RRP in the early Black Friday sales at Currys PC World, the Sony XH90 75in is the best-value extra-large 4K gaming TV on the market. As part of an upcoming firmware update (scheduled for “Winter 2020”), the XH90 will support next-gen gaming features such as VRR and 4K at 120Hz via its two HDMI 2.1 inputs. HDR playback is bright and impactful, most of all in Dolby Vision, and the XH90’s motion control and black levels are also exceptional for a mid-range LED LCD. Pick this one up while the savings last! Read our full Sony XH90 review for more details Buy now from Currys PC World 8. Samsung Q800T 65in 8K HDR TV (was £3,799, now £2,299)

The Q800T 65in is the smallest and most affordable of Samsung’s mid-range 8K TVs in 2020, and it’s currently at its lowest ever price in the early Black Friday sales. When we first covered the Q800T, it was retailing for £3,799, meaning the new Black Friday price of £2,229 is an incredible £1,500 cheaper. This 8K QLED TV packs in plenty of premium Samsung tech, including an Ultra Wide Viewing Angle layer, FALD, a Quantum Processor 8K and Object Tracking Sound+. Like other Samsung QLEDs, it supports HDR 10, HDR 10+ and HLG, and its eARC output can decode Dolby Atmos audio. Finally, for gaming, the Q800T has VRR (FreeSync and G-Sync) and ALLM capabilities. Read our full Samsung Q800T guide for more details 9. Philips 58in 4k Ultra HD LDR TV (was £499, now £379)

This 58in beauty from Philips was already eminently reasonably priced at £499, but thanks to the onslaught of Black Friday deals it’s now just £379 – that means chunky savings of £120. Its 4k Ultra HD resolution makes for a beautifully clear picture with a richness of colour. Meanwhile its Saphi Smart TV system means you’ve got a world of entertainment at your fingertips, with Netlix, YouTube and other apps at your disposal.  Buy now from Currys PC World Best of the rest Don’t see anything you fancy in our TV deals roundup?
