When is Black Friday 2021?

Black Friday 2021 officially begins on November 26, but many stores start offering deals much earlier than that. 

We're already seeing retailers like Best Buy and Amazon drop prices on TVs in the lead-up to the holiday. We also expect many of the sales from Black Friday to carry into Cyber Monday — but stock may be limited.

Are Black Friday TV deals worth buying?

In short: absolutely. Black Friday brings some of the best prices we see all year on TVs of all price points, brands, and sizes. It's a rare chance to save big on options that seldom see discounts. 

How to shop for a TV

Finding the right TV for your needs can be tricky. Prices vary a lot depending on the features and size you want. On the low-end, you can find smaller HDTVs for as little as $100 or less. When it comes to flagship 65-inch 4K models, prices can rise to $1,500 or more. Depending on how big the display is, the best 8K TVs can even cost in excess of $10,000.

Thankfully, there are a few simple guidelines you can follow to help narrow down your selection.

If you prioritize home theater performance for the best movie-watching experience, you'll want to opt for a 4K display with at least a 65-inch screen. The best 4K TVs use an OLED panel, or an advanced LED screen (often branded as QLED) with local dimming and quantum dots. These displays enable the highest contrast, deepest black levels, and brightest images for a gorgeous high dynamic range (HDR) picture.  

For people who just want a no-fuss display that's suited for casual viewing, a smaller TV with a more budget-friendly LED panel should be more than fine. Though image performance won't be as impressive as more expensive models, there are plenty of cheap LED TVs with solid performance, including budget models that still manage to pack in 4K, HDR, and integrated smart TV streaming.
