Something is happening at Best Buy this week. Shoppers can currently find some incredible deals on a range of smart TVs, all available from Samsung. A smart TV connects you to much more than just your channels. Using these aptly named devices, you can share content between your smartphone and TV, control various internet-enabled devices around your home, ask Alexa to tune into your most-loved channels, and even program it to find your favorite sports teams so you’ll never miss a game. All-in-all, it means a more seamless entertainment experience that you’ll be excited to come home to after a long day at the office.
The Samsung smart TVs on this list are currently available from Best Buy for up to 25 percent off. With big-ticket items, those cost savings can add up to a whopping $500. Right now, all deals also come with 30 days free access to Sling TV, Dish Network’s answer to Hulu and Netflix. The base Sling Orange package comes with channels including ESPN, AMC, CNN, Comedy Central, and A&E.
In order to save you time (and of course, money), we’ve narrowed down this list to five exceptional TVs that have earned high ratings from Best Buy customers. Each TV is built with a stunning 4K display, bringing you cinema-quality picture in the comfort of your own living room. In sizes ranging from 49- inch to 65- inch, you’re bound to find a smart TV that will bring new life (and intelligent life at that) to your space.
Starting with the smallest TV on the list, this Samsung 49- inch smart TV comes with QLED technology. That means a few things: first, Q Color brings your images to life with over a billion shades on full display; second, Q HDR helps you more clearly distinguish colors in movies and shows, just as was intended on the cutting room floor; third, Q Style keeps your cords out of sight so your TV looks clean and clutter-free; and fourth, Q Smart with Bixby Voice lets you connect your TV to your smartphone to control your content on the big screen.
All jargon aside, for $700, this is a perfectly good TV with dynamic display and excellent motion clarity. You may, however, want to invest in a soundbar to bring its speaker quality on par with the rest of the machine.

Samsung 55- inch NU8000 Series LED Smart TV
Original Price: $1,100
Sale Price: $850
At 55- inch, this TV from Samsung is a good size for most living room spaces. While it isn’t built with QLED tech, the TV features HDR Plus display, delivering your images in stunning high dynamic range. This means better contrast, greater brightness levels and a wider color palette to keep light images bright and black images deep and dark. Like the 49”, this TV also comes with Bixby Voice, which acts as an AI-based voice assistant to help you find and stream TV shows. It’s the same assistant Samsung users interact with on their smartphones.
On sale for under $1,000, you’d be hard pressed to get a better TV at this price point. The picture quality is great for gamers in particular, as well as for anyone who will be placing the TV in a bright room.

Samsung 55- inch Class Q6F Series LED Smart TV
Original Price: $1,300
Sale Price: $1,000
Priced $250 above the previous 55- inch on the list, this TV from Samsung comes with one notable improvement: QLED display. As such, it combines the best of the above options in an impressive 3840 x 2160 resolution, letting you see every colorful detail in stunning clarity. You can even watch HDR movies and TV shows. If you’re the kind of person to watch shows while you cook or do chores, you’ll appreciate the TV’s wide viewing angle, which lets you see the display from almost any position.

Samsung 55- inch Class Frame Series LED Smart TV
Original Price: $2,000
Sale Price: $1,500
It’s a Van Gogh! It’s a Matisse! It’s a… Samsung? As a member of the Samsung Frame Series, this TV turns into a stunning piece of art when not in use. The device will automatically cycle through its digital artwork via its art mode feature, which adapts the image on the screen to display optimally based on room light conditions. While a little gimmicky in its description, in person, it’s hard not to notice this Samsung, even when it’s not in use — and that’s part of the point. With multiple supported HDR formats, Dolby Digital Plus sound and excellent motion clarity, this TV is a showstopper (both when it’s on and idling in the background).

Samsung 65- inch Class NU7300 Series LED Smart TV
Original Price: $1,100
Sale Price: $900
Now, this is a TV for watching the big game. At just $900, the Samsung 65- inch offers to cover a significant amount of wall space for a relatively low price. Like the Q6F Series, this TV is curved, so you and the gang can all cheer on the home team in crystal clear picture no matter where you end up sitting. The display also features Auto Depth Enhancer, which adjusts the levels of contrast on different areas on the screen to create more depth. The only con (depending on your preferences) is that with a lower motion rate than most of the TVs on this list, the NU7300 Series may not leave you feeling as close to the action as others would. But at less than $1,000, it’s a small price to pay for a cinema-style experience.
