If you’re after a brand new TV this Black Friday, then Samsung is one of the best brands you can choose. The good news? Samsung has laid on some fantastic Black Friday discounts across its TV ranges, so you can make a saving, too.
The main thing with Samsung is to focus on whether you want to buy a 2018 TV at a discount, or a 2017 TV at a huge discount. Go for this year’s models and you’ll spend a bit more, but you’ll get the latest tech, such as 4K screens. Pick from last year’s models, and you can make a big saving – if you’re prepared to forego 4K and get a respectable Full HD TV instead, for example. Both should still be Smart TVs that are able to connect to streaming services.
How can you tell them apart? Easy. The 2018 range has an ‘N’ or ‘NU’ in the product name (hey, ‘NU’ even sounds like ‘new’). The 2017 range has an ‘M’.
We wouldn’t recommend going further back than last year’s Samsung models. And, if you really want to spend big, you can choose from one of Samsung’s QLED (Quantum Dot Light Emitting Diode) range. These are ultra-premium screens with fantastic picture clarity – and thankfully, some of these are seeing a Black Friday price cut, too.
Of course, Samsung isn’t the only brand when it comes to TVs, and its rivals have healthy discounts too. See our round-up of the Best TV Black Friday Deals for more
We’ll keep this guide updated throughout Black Friday and Cyber Monday to round up the best deals as we spot them.
To make a real saving and pick up an amazingly cheap TV, it can be smart to turn back the clocks a little and look to Samsung’s 2017 TV range.
You can still find high quality 4K TVs from among the 2017 models (which have an M in their naming convention, as opposed to 2018’s N-range). There are also some Full HD (1080p) or even 720p screens (even lower resolution, but still high definition) that will be super-cheap this Black Friday compared to 4K sets.
If you’re buying a TV of 32-inches or smaller, you can get away with the lower resolution. 4K quality requires a larger screen (40-inch and above) to really show off its effect.
