The return of regular movie theater trips has been a cinephile’s dream for the past year. The moody lighting, emptiness, and peculiar mix of popcorn and nostalgia is a recipe for goosebumps.
But others don’t miss paying $20 to crawl over that person who had to sit at the end of the aisle. These aesthetes enjoy the comforting ambience of a home theater, where the vivid colors and shadowy details are up close and personal. This week’s TV deals are for those people: Save big on 77-inch versions of two of the fanciest models from LG and Sony.
Samsung’s 2021 line of QLEDs made its official debut to the pre-order market this March. That means that we can expect pretty consistent deals on last year’s QLEDs — which are still stellar displays in their own right. The 75-inch Q60T went on sale during Samsung’s Discover Spring event and hasn’t bounced back since. It’s quite possibly the internet’s favorite affordable QLED.
OUR TOP PICK: 77-inch GX Series OLED 4K UHD Smart TV (OLED77GXPUA) — $3,799.99 (save $500)
A dark room is a prime environment for at-home movie — as long as your TV can actually carve out those dark scenes, that is. LG’s GX Series offers a near-infinite contrast ratio and black uniformity that’s almost… radiant? Plus, the luxe one-piece design takes it from a regular big TV to a true cinema accessory.
The 77-inch version of Sony’s 2019 A9G line has returned to its November holiday pricing. It certainly gives the LG GX Series a run for its money as *the* cinephile choice this week. This OLED masterpiece is armed with Sony’s “best processor ever” and uses Acoustic Surface Audio+ sound to bring concert hall-like sound to each scene.
Hisense, Vizio, and more
The chance to upgrade to QLED (on a 55-inch display, no less) for less than $500 is a prime example of just how mainstream this once-elusive technology has become. The 5 Series is the entry-level tier of the bunch and doesn’t have the same brightness as the 6-Series or 8-Series. But for the price, it’s a solid budget QLED with punchy colors and built-in Roku.
